Gray, Maria
[ARCH 3117] Perceptions of Architecture

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

Maria is an incredibly encouraging and friendly professor - if you can get into her studio, I definately would. She likes innovation and creativity in your projects and gives you restraints on what you can use, but lets you go freely from there. The class wasn't very structured - pretty much presenting the project, maybe a mini discussion on a packet of reading, and then pretty much desk crits all the way. I just wish she were a little more critical - she would be incredibly positive about your projects during desk crits, but during the final reviews she would bring up criticisms that she hadn't mentioned before... In general, though, a good professor who's more laid-back than most.
