The award winning work of Farzam Yazdanseta (M.Arch, 2008) is featured on the cover of the journal. Several images of the winning project are included in the preface to the Journal in a section describing the international design award winners of this year’s awards of distinction. The awards are offered annually by Auto Des Sys, Inc. as part of their University Joint Study Program.
Lecturer Carl Lostritto, (M.Arch. 2008) and Assistant Professor Michael A. Ambrose co-authored a paper titled "Animate Topologies: Blending Media and Architecture". The paper discusses the work of two courses taught by Professor Ambrose (ARCH 601 aesthetics|media|politics and ARCH 670 Digital Modeling and Animation) and the digital design media attitudes and processes developed in the Graduate Program here at the University of Maryland. The work of Carl Lostritto illustrates the article and provides insight into the potential of animate effects on the design process.
Lecturer Mark Ramirez and Carl Lostritto co-authored a paper titled “Introductory Digital Design Seminar: Thinking and Making”. The paper discusses the work developed in delivery of the ARCH 470 Intro to Computer Applications in Architecture course offered here at the University of Maryland. The work of six University of Maryland Architecture students is included to illustrate the work of the course as taught by Professors Ramirez and Lostritto.
