Comment: Unless you are in CED and have no choice, don't take this class. So much work for a 3 unit class and the whole point is to throw you off your game, allowing you to experience what the field of architecture might be like. The assignments are really vague and GSIs actively try to not help you. The lectures were interesting and so were some of the texts. However, just know that this is NOT in any way an easy classâ€”time consuming assignments due every week, readings for every lecture in a fat reader (bigger than most humanities readers), and overall bad vibes. Talk to people who have taken it and really know what you are getting yourself into before you're past the drop deadline. Best advice: beware that this demands tedious collaging (cutting and gluing tiny pieces of paper) more than anything else. If you're down with that, go for it.

Comment: I love Nicholas! He's really humorous and makes the lectures very interesting. The assignments take soooo much time and thoughts, regarding it's a 3-unit course, but they are worth your effort.
