more like...any insider knowledge?
any less-known, non-celebrity architects who are nonetheless making a big impact on the architecture community, etc.?
what can i talk about, not just the dime-a-dozen information, that will show i really researched my stuff?
cornell doesn't have the frank gehry, zaha hadid, richard meier and stuff that yale and harvard do...but the people are no doubt still interesting. especially because cornell's in ithaca (middle of no where), it can't sustain any actively practicing architects as full-time faculty.
therefore, in order to know a lot of these faculty, i have to know a lot about the more pedagogical side of architecture...and i don't. Sorry if my last post sounded ignorant, it's just that i really don't think many of the names of the faculty at cornell are common knowledge. Again, i don't doubt that cornell's reputation exists because of amazing professors.
i just need more to work on than that.
