Those of you who will be presenting in Open House may leave your models in the studios as discussed, but otherwise all must go.

The deadline is noon tomorrow, May 4th.  Anything not removed by then will be tossed.

EMBODIMENT Model Competition TODAY

Good morning! Today is the big day.   We can’t wait to see the models in Crown Hall.

The model competition process is as follows:

Please begin setting up as early as possible by bringing your models to Crown Hall.  You will be asked to set up your models adjacent to an assigned number per the document found here –  S18 ARCH 306 MODEL COMPETITION ASSIGNMENTS.  Post-it notes will be in place by 1:15pm in Upper Center Core in what we hope is a clear order, but don’t hesitate to ask for assistance if not.

If by mistake your name does not appear on this roster, please either contact me by email ( or see me or Professor Glynn this afternoon for a spot.

Instructions and rules for setting up are simple.  Please place your model directly below or adjacent to the corresponding numbered post it note, leaving the post it note in place.  Please do not place any names on your model, and please take care to leave the post it notes in place or in some clear manner as to which number your model corresponds to/with.   Model bases will be in short supply, so please be smart/kind and please know that they are not essential.  If bases are not available please simply place your models on the ground.

At 2:25 set-up must be complete, and we ask that you please convene in Upper Center Core.  The competition will be juried by several guest jurors beginning with introductions at that time.  The jurors will be selecting a shortlist of projects for final review (pink dot), and you will be asked to participate by nominating winners for both Best Model (green dot) and Best Design/Best Project (yellow dot).  Please note, if you are a current 4th or 5th year student reading this post and would like to participate, please find a Professor for a colored dot so that you can make your votes.

At 3:30, all projects in North Center Core should be taken down from their locations, and those projects with pink dots should be moved to North Center Core for final judging.  Please remember to also bring your post it number designation with you so we have record of which projects belong to who.   At 4:00pm, our guest jurors, with your participation if you would like, with convene for final reviewing, commentary and awarding of winners.

Space is tight and models are large, so please work together to get everything on display.

After the winners have been announced, it is your responsibility to carefully remove your models from their displayed locations and return Upper Crown Hall to the condition we found it. Model bases should be returned to their homes, and all models should be brought back to 3410.

And by Monday, 3410 must be completely cleaned, hallways, desks, etc, so that you are ready to make your final push towards final reviews.

Good luck  and can’t wait to see the work!
