I had a great time working on a fun project for the Gingerbread Collective at Arclinea San Diego.  I was invited to design a ‘Gingergread House’ for this event and gave it my best shot.  In the end, my baking was far from successful but I didn’t let that stop me.  The mi-workshop proposal was about our communities and how we live on our land.  I encourage you to see the proposal in person!  It is always great to see that people are also giving back.  The Gingerbread Collective is supporting SECOND CHANCE,a non-profit organization helping people get jobs, education and housing.

Check out the projects by all the participants by stopping by Arclinea San Diego

Woodbury University


It was a great pleasure to teach again this semester at Woodbury University School of Architecture, San Diego.  The third year students worked on an artist housing project in Oceanside, CA along with some other supporting projects throughout the semester.  A great group of students and some really great projects! A publication of their projects is in the works and I will post a link soon!

Thanks to the students for the hard work,  I also learned so much from you all.

It was a pleasure serving on the jury for San Diego Architecture Foundation’s Orchids and Onions 2009.  A diverse group of local art and design pro’s had a blast reviewing projects that were nominated by the public, we had a great time discussing and arguing over which project was most deserving of  each category.  There were definitely some really great Orchid projects and some stinky Onions as well!  Keep you eyes open for projects to nominate for 2010 and don’t miss the awards ceremony! Check out the list of 2009 winners (and losers)  here or a video below by our Mistress of Ceremonies, Barbarella.
