Have a great week,

A few interesting things we’ve come across this week:

1. The UW Department of Architecture is on Facebook (seriously!). “Like” us for friendly reminders and the ease of having this blog come to you, while you’re waiting for your files to sync, right?
2. Are charrettes old school? via The Harvard Design Magazine, Fall/Winter 2010-2011, Number 33.
3.  Opinions on the recently opened Gates Foundation by NBBJ? via Crosscut.
4.  VOTE (tunnels, buses, send it in by tomorrow- August 16)
5.  VOTE
6. Fiesty red BIM and interior design/architecture by Evan Douglis, introduced by Kris Luce in the summer Revit course.
7. When all else fails on earth, enter the 2011 Zombie Safe House Competition.
8. The artist studios at 619 Western are officially closed, but here’s a great slideshow of the artists, works and my favorite, the Pioneer Square artwalk. via Seattle Weekly.
9. As thesis approaches quickly (for some) and is here (for others), an inspiring project from PROJECTiONE. via ArchDaily.


(Also, the winning entry for Barbie’s dream house, as featured on Bustlr).
