Architecture School Reality Series

No one’s trying to come in and build something that people are going to walk by or drive by and be like, “Why is this here?…This looks so out of place.” At the same time, recreating something or trying to mimic something that was built a hundred years ago, or 50 years ago, I don’t think that’s an homage to something that was built a long time ago. I think that’s just a bastardization of something that was built a long time ago.

This is Amarit. Originally from Chicago, Illinois, he may now be found at the Tulane School of Architecture. The Sundance Channel has produced a six-part reality series about him, eight other architecture students and New Orleans called “Architecture School.” The series records the semester of fourth-year students in the URBANBuild program. The program allows students to design and build a home in post-Katrina New Orleans. You may watch at Hulu or on iTunes after they air on the Sundance Channel. iTunes will make you pay for all but the first episode.

The Solar Decathlon is another example of architecture students doing real work in their field.
