News from TSD…

Hi, everyone – just a couple of reminders to carry us through the end of the year. Our annual ‘Diag-Rama’ will happen on Friday, April 11 at 1:00 in the auditorium and sign-up sheets are available – please ask a TSD member for that.

Also, the Hampton University Department of Architecture Annual Awards night will take place on Tuesday, April 29 starting at 7:00 pm in Phenix Hall. This is a nicely planned event that will include studio awards given by our faculty recognizing excellence in student design, AIAS awards and the TSD Silver and Bronze Medal Awards as well. The fifth year studio’s Best Thesis will be awarded publicly this year which has not happened in quite a while at HU. In all, it is the intent that this event will become the precedent for future Architecture Department annual award ceremonies. That said please mark your calendars appropriately! A short ‘Meet and Greet’ with hors d’oeuvres will begin at 7:00 pm and the awards ceremony to follow at 7:30. The attire is business casual and no jeans or sneakers please. This is your chosen major and your colleague’s excellent work being celebrated – please come and support YOUR architecture department.
