Just opened the October issue of LAM and what do I see on the first page of the student awards? SHIFT:infrastructure with a big ole’ Award of Excellence! Congratulations to all the students involved as well as Andy Fox who was instrumental in getting the first issue of this student run, peer-reviewed scholarly journal off the ground. As the name alludes, SHIFT has a changing topic every year and the second issue focuses on “process”. Check back in for more details and congratulations again for the inaugural staff!
Also check out the second award recipient’s project, City Fabric, by Matt Tomasulo. Matt, a recent College of Design graduate, has organized a project in which the figure ground Nolli map stimulates conversation about the wearer’s favorite place and helps introduce non designers to urban form in a new and visually stimulating way.
