Today was the start of classes and the lottery for the winter architecture studios. Since we elected to take a full studio with Thom Mayne (instead of a seminar as scheduled) I wasn't affected. I did attend and it was interesting to hear to the proposals. All of the course outlines are posted online here: http://www.aud.ucla.edu/~jkies/W07Outlines/W07Outlines.htm
For this quarter I am required to take two electives along with my studio. I'm leaning towards the two theory courses taught by Gow and Speaks, although the Tech course by Erdman is very enticing. Unfortunately, the two week studio trip to Europe in February makes a tech course tough.
