Schwartzman, Madeline Silver_nugget
[ARCH 3117] Perceptions of Architecture

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

If you can avoid having her as a teacher I would highly suggest that move! She is erratic and wacky. Some days she can be helpful in helping you produce a product or model and other days she changes her directions completely making you start your project all over. She can be very rude and blunt in ways that are not productive to your learning. I truly believe she grades based on who she likes and who she doesn't. Her projects do not make you want to pursue architecture any further. However, if you do things inspired by the human body she will love it. Everything is architectonic if it doesn't make sense, but if you think something through and explain it she will not like it. I found this class very hard to enjoy. I started every day with a headache when I had her. I look forward to other architecture professors and not having her again. The class was a waste of time. She can be nice if she wants to be, but mostly it's her complaining about her multiple sicknesses .


2 major projects -collages, study models, drawings etc

A lot of throw away work because you never know what she wants
