Works from the graduate architecture studios are on display in the Draewell Gallery at Judson University through January 22, 2010. Ideation: Graduate Works in Progress documents the fall semester of two design studios in the parallel concentration tracks of Traditional Architecture and Urbanism (TAU), and Sustainable Design and Technology (SD). With concentration studios led by professors Miller and Kaiser/Breimer, respectively, the works seek to uncover relationships between design thinking, urbanism, sustainability and innovation. The intersection of the faith-based architecture program at Judson University, particularly that of an evangelical Christian worldview, and a professional degree program in architecture makes for rich experiences and works in the design studio. Students are exploring their creativity and problem solving within the context of a Christian architecture school setting.

Notable TAU projects from the fall semester 2009, include those by JoAnna (Hastings) Landers/Ben Scarbro and Sam Lima. These works evidence a clarity of investigation and research of traditional precedent, urban morphology, and iconography toward the innovative new works.

Likewise, the SD approaches by Joseph Juhl and Ryan VenHuizen in hypothetical new schools of architecture for Laurentian University in Ontario Canada, express the deep structure of sustainable design thinking. Evidence for this passion reads in their careful designation of materials and control of daylighting, while orienting their buildings along east-west axes to allow for intelligent passive solar control.

The very, very small car from India arrived today for a press conference en route to the Detroit motor show thanks to Judson University trustee Kevin Noe. The Draewell Gallery in the Harm A. Weber Academic Center hosts a sneak peek this afternoon and early evening of the smallest and least expensive passenger car on the planet. The School of Art, Design, and Architecture is very proud to have such a forward-looking vehicle in such a forward-looking setting. Very small, and very cool!
