Parametric Legos

6 Mar

Ever since I learned about parametric design I have struggled for a good way to explain it to someone who doesn’t know what it is. I could always come up with decent explanations that would make sense to those who knew what I was talking about but still left those who hadn’t dealt with parametric design in a confused state. Who know this might just sound like gibberish again but I think this exhibit of students variations of Lego towers could be just the visual I needed.

IIT Architecture among the best

17 Nov

The institute we all know and love has received some good marks for the architecture program. The results come from the 13th annual America’s Best Architecture and Design Schools survey and were recently reported in IIT Today. I am rather happy to hear that firms in the Midwest rank the undergraduate program as #2. Overall we rank #17 nationwide and #3 in the Midwest. For those of us searching for jobs this is just more proof that a degree from IIT is still highly regarded in the field.
