Spring 2013 / Recap + Goodbyes

pat natke, banner 02-01

This summer brings an important transition for the iitAQ; the induction of the iitAQHQ 2 (led by Manuel Yeverino) who will continue to iterate the iitAQ concept and mix-in new surprises.

You’ll learn more about what’s in store for fall later this summer. For now, let’s recap on this semester’s program (in addition last semester’s). The iitAQHQ 1 met over 10 times and we’re happy to have had new students join us.

Elections Part 2
We had a total of eight candidates, but only three could make the cut: Alejandro Rojas, James Ortega, and Kulsum Ishrati. These new officers joined last semester’s (Manuel Yeverino, Oscar Chavez, and Zubair Bhaidani) to complete the iitAQHQ 2.

Conversaciones: Patricia Saldana Natke
Prof. Natke spoke in detail about her most recent projects; in particular, her take on UNO’s charter schools as well as a little background on her academic and professional experience.

IntoStudio
For our first collaboration with the iitAIAS, we created a shadowing initiative for the IIT Boeing Scholars Academy program that introduced architecture as an academic and professional experience to high-achieving high school students.

Photoshop Workshop
Maria Villareal – 5th-year undergrad – led a step-by-step workshop that not only taught sketch-rendering essentials but useful and time-saving software navigation and utilization skills.

Hangout: City Hall
Luis Monterrubio – project coordinator for the City of Chicago – invited us to City Hall to discuss the history of the city, the role of the planner/architect in the urban-administrative context, and master plans such as the Chicago central area action plan.

InDesign Workshop
Prof. Parente taught the fundamentals of page and book layout as well as how to use InDesign as a tool for layout geared towards setting up documents and portfolios.

Firm Visit: JGMA
Juan Moreno – founder and principal – invited us to get to know the new office as well as to learn about new and ongoing projects the firm has been focusing on since our last visit in spring 2012.

THANKS

We’d like to thank all the students, organizations, faculty and staff members who have consistantly supported us in more ways than one not only by attending our events but by helping us organize them. The iitAQ exists for its students and we’re happy to see so many of them constantly involved.

We’ve had a great time leading the iitAQ and we highly encourage all CoA students to become involved in IIT’s student organizations to unlock a rich set of skills and grow a community of experiences and resources.

Have a great summer. See you next year.
