Read how you can use your architecture degree for entrepreneurial advancement!

If you are interested to learn what creative jobs you can do with an architecture degree besides becoming an architect, please read an interesting article in Black Enterprise magazine (January 2012 issue) titled, Driven by Design on pages 75-76 that can be found in CED's advising office on the sign in counter or at this link http://onlinedigitalpubs.com/publication/?i=93870 which shows the magazine cover. Then you go to the page of the article which is page #75-76 by using the arrow page changer located in the top yellow margin or click on the white box to select the exact page #.

Highlights of the article include:
  • Twin brothers graduated with a B.S. in Architecture form the University of Florida & earned a Master's in Architecture, Advance Placement from Harvard Graduate School of Design
  • They were recruited as researchers by world-renowned Dutch architect Rem Koolhass
  • Their travels "...exposed them to the inner workings of an architecture firm including merchandising, creating concepts for brands, and designing the stages for fashion shows (p. 75)."
  • Founded their own company called DIOSCURI starting with a small line of silk scarves and high-quality woven fabrics, then wooden bracelets.  "...DIOSCURI has evolved into a brand consulting firm for major players in the design industry (p.76)."
  • They created design innovations for Starbucks, luxury hotels, and department stores
  • Key message from the article is to to diversify your work to survive the industry!

DCRP Colloquium, entitled "Transit Investments and Economic Productivity: a Debate."

Please join us for our next upcoming colloquium:
Daniel Chatman, Associate Professor in our very own DCRP; Daniel Graham, of
the Center for Transport Studies at Imperial College London; and David
Levinson of the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of
Minnesota will be presenting and discussing their research on this topic. In
addition, Robert Helsley of the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban
Economics at the Haas business school here at Berkeley will be serving as
the discussant for what will undoubtedly be a lively exchange of ideas and
differing viewpoints. 
This Colloquium will take place on Monday, April 2, from 5 to 7 pm. Note
that this is the first weekday after spring break, so best to get this on
your calendar now.
We're expecting a big crowd, so we'll be holding this event in Wurster Room
112, the large auditorium on the first floor, accessed directly from the
lobby. 
Also, as you interact with the prospective students who will be visiting the
department on that day (including during the reception that will immediately
precede the Colloquium), please encourage them to come to Room 112 and
attend the Colloquium. This will be a perfect way to show them the kind of
intellectual exchanges that occur in this Department.

CRIMINALIZING VICE:
THE “COMMON GAMING HOUSE” IN COLONIAL SINGAPORE

Lee will discuss a specific nexus of power/knowledge in the project of criminalizing vice in colonial Singapore. The task faced by the colonial administrators was not just to suppress vice, but to protect law itself from its own excesses. The Common Gaming House that targeted illegal gambling was a political technology that tried to distribute the weight of punishment effectively and righteously, yet always reserving a space of tolerated illegalities where the distinction between crime and vice was ambiguous.

EMERGENT PROTOZONES
The socio-political and economic atmosphere of Calabar, Nigeria is one which, for centuries, has tended to be decentralized in nature. Consisting of polynucleated and fragmented zones that were loosely tied together by informal juridical systems and cultural codes, the architecture and urbanism of this cosmopolitan city in many ways foreshadowed the splintering forms of urbanism emerging globally today.

INSIDE THE BIG BOX:
DESIGN, DISPLAY, AND ENCHANTMENT AT COSTCO

Since its founding in 1983, big-box warehouse club Costco has risen to become the third largest retailer in the U.S. and attain a cult-like status among a diverse swath of American consumers. Remarkably, Costco has achieved this primacy from a warehouse-style store spartan even by the standards of big box retail. How does the seemingly inert, utilitarian, and highly rational space effect the satisfying consumption experiences that earn Costco its cultural cachet?

and the St. Louis residents who called it home." (www.pruitt-igoe.com)

IDP & the ARE: Weathering the Storm

A YAF/EPC Panel Discussion
Tuesday, March 20 
6pm 

Let's face it, getting an architectural license is hard. There's paperwork, bureaucracy, expenses, time-all in addition to studying and proving that you have the right stuff to be an architect.

Come to AIA East Bay on Tuesday, March 20th to hear how recently licensed architects (and one soon to be) made it through the storm (relatively) unscathed. How did they do it? They'll talk about the study process, ways to use IDP as a career tool, motivational tips, plus-is there a rainbow at the end of the storm?

Speed Mentoring
Tuesday, April 3
6-7:30pm 
 
Come together for a fast-paced, no-commitment program of speed mentoring. Here protégés will benefit from quick-hit information, time-efficient mentoring, and the opportunity to network with architects and experienced design professionals.  

A casual reception follows the speed mentoring program to allow for continuation of conversations that might have ended too soon.  

Presented by the Emerging Professionals Committee (EPC).
