Happy Mardi Gras

Fat Tuesday has come again and I thought I would post a couple of photographs - colored especially for the occasion. Purple, Gold and Green being the most prominent color pallet of the Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans.

In other matters, the Thesis deadline is fast approaching. I think I am to the point where I can fully focus on writing until the March 1st deadline. The problem is I keep finding new and interesting tangents of research. I need to stop worrying and just write for a couple of day solid, then I think I will feel better about the whole thing.

I also wanted to post that the Thomas Jefferson Student Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians had its first meeting of the semester yesterday. I am glad that we finally were able to all meet, regardless of bad weather. Some of the proposed lectures this semester, including Jesus Escobar are going to be fantastic. I can't wait to hear some of these exciting speakers. I have put a link to our chapter of SAH if anyone is interested in more info regarding the group or our upcoming events.

As a final note, I found these really interesting mini-documentaries on several well known modern architectural sites including structures by KoolHaas, Renzo Piano and Meier. These short films have all been produced under the auspices of a film series known as Living Architectures. You can find out more about this project at this site: http://www.living-architectures.com/html/filmseries.html. These look fantastic, and the trailers are amazing!
