From One Boot to Another: LSU Students in Italy
A group of LSU School of Architecture students are currently spending the entire fall semester in Rome! The Rome Program is offered during the fall semester and is a 17-week, 15-credit hour design curriculum taught by LSU and University of Arkansas Rome Center faculty. The students are learning about Rome tectonics, visiting project sites, such as the Largo di Torre Argentina, and traveling further afield - for example, hiking in the Dolomites - on weekends, as pictured above. The School of Architecture has been sharing weekly updates on their Facebook page. View the 2016 Rome Program photo album on Facebook.

Alumni Spotlight
Design & Technology: Expanding the Role of the Contemporary Design Professional

LSU School of Architecture alumnus Charles Jones has worked for Frank Gehry; he helped establish a multimillion-dollar digital fabrication and research lab for American University's College of Architecture, Art, and Design in Dubai; and he currently teaches advanced digital media seminars and is the digital fabrication director of the CNC lab at Tulane's School of Architecture. He and a colleague at Tulane established One to One Design, a New Orleans-based multidisciplinary design firm that offers full-service design, constructability analysis, and design, technology, and façade consulting. One to One's strength is in leveraging technology to enhance the design process, using innovative data management, documentation, analysis, prototyping, and visualization techniques to test ideas and discover unique design opportunities.
One to One's consulting work includes the design and detailing of a street gallery façade for San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art Expansion, designed by Snohetta. The firm was contracted to help detail and rationalize the glass paneling on two new subway canopies in New York and an entrance canopy for Capital One's future headquarters in Virginia. One to One recently placed in an international architecture competition centered on designing a cannabis bank. One to One's project, titled CROP (Cannabis Research Opportunity Program), proposed a state grow site and distribution center to be operated by the LSU AgCenter and a narrative focused on local resources, the economic crisis and its effect on TOPS, policy, and education.
"These projects - more directly related to research - keep us fresh and relevant, allowing us to test design tools and their relationship to documentation and analysis," said Jones.
