Studio Soundtrack features five songs selected by a student at Waterloo Architecture. This week, Caelin Schneider takes us west to Seattle. Things may have settled down after the heyday of the 90’s, but the Seattle sound is as alive and well as ever. When it is overcast 200 days a year, you spend a lot of time sitting inside making music.

Stela’s thesis explores the contributive role of the genius locus, or “spirit of place”, in the identity of cities and the production of meaningful places. The research addresses the analysis of genius loci as historical phenomena as well as their modern role within suburban landscapes. Focusing on the suburban city of Mississauga, urban and architectural failures bring the agency of architecture into question in order to contest architecturally indifferent development. The design intervention embodies Mississauga’s genius locus – an urban simulacrum born from commerce, speculation, and the resistant debris of city growth – into a matrix of architectural and landscape inserts. Stela’s defence will take place on Monday February 8, 2016 at 12:00 pm in the Loft.
The Unwind Fiber Arts Club, originally called the UWSA Knitting Club, was started in Fall 2014 by a group of graduate students who shared a passion for knitting and an interest in learning new textile crafts and techniques. Unwind is currently looking to expand its knowledge of textile crafts and would love to learn more about the fiber talent at UWSA so if you have a skill that you’d like to share such as leather working, bookbinding, embroidery, etc. then we will use all of our resources and experience to help make your workshop happen!
Kyle’s thesis ‘States of Dependency’ is concerned with exploring architectures relationship to socio-political and ethnographic conflict within Jerusalem. Specifically, the work examines the districts of west and east Musrara, sites just to the north of the Old City, and reimagines the civic function of the no-mans land that runs between them. The project works to literally bridge the Israeli western half and the Palestinian eastern half of this area, and explores the educational and civic role that a truly public space may provide in this context. Kyle’s defence will take place on Friday January 15th, 2016 at 9 30 AM in ARC 2003.

Inspired by last term’s 100 Notebook Project and moved by the people and landscapes of an alien land, I began to document my stay in Bali through the entries of a travel journal. Although my week was taken up largely by my internship duties, I made it a point to see and do as much as […]
