First published in 1990 as the School of Architecture and Planning's journal of student work, Intersight chronicles the creative and scholarly outputs of our students and reflects on the pedagogy of the school. This online collection represents more recent projects, published in the journal since 2018.
Standing at more than 20 volumes, this anthology of student work captures the program's intellectual currents over the course of three decades. Intersight is curated and produced each year by a Master of Architecture student selected to serve as the Fred Wallace Brunkow Fellow. This annual fellowship is generously supported by Kathryn Brunkow Sample and former UB President Steven Sample. Support for the production of the Intersight book publication is provided by CannonDesign.
We're excited to introduce to you Katelyn Broat, UB Master of Architecture student and editor of Intersight 24 as our 2021-22 Brunkow Fellow.
According to Broat, "Intersight 24 looks to highlight the way that the School of Architecture and Planning is making a comeback to normalcy. We will explore how we choose to ingrain ourselves back into the community, and how we engage with one another."
Intersight 24 will take a careful approach to analyzing the interpersonal connections among members of our School community. Through interviews, research and documentation of student work, Intersight 24 will uncover the many ways the School impacts its students, faculty, staff and community, and how together this forms our distinctive culture.
Released in May 2021, this edition of Intersight documents student work generated during 2020, presenting a slice of work and conversations taken during a moment of dramatic change in how and where we learn and collaborate. The separation required during the COVID-19 pandemic meant that we had to mostly abandon our traditional methods and places of learning, and rapidly innovate the ways in which we collectively work.
