from LGA to FRA / by Shida Salehi

We spent the weekend with Mark Wigley and Beatriz Colomina discussing the diploma thesis topics and the traveling architect. For me it was a breath of fresh air for some New Yorkers to come in and talk about travel. I must say I was caught in a bit of nostalgic moment, just thinking about New York….. I know I know I do that all the time but it was even more obvious this time…sigh… Anyway, Mark lectured about the Myth of Local….Does an architect need to see the site to really build “good” architecture?….and Beatrix gave us a glimpse into the traveling life of Le Corbusier (a very different travel experience). These are moments you dreamt of while applying to your masters of architecture.
