Studying Architecture Abroad at Temple Japan

Author: Emily Furlong

Written by Giang Phung, BSArch’18 Four months! I have been in Japan for that long and yet, it seems like yesterday when I first landed at Narita. Japan has been reviving my excitement with its vibrancy, so constantly that I lose track of time for there is always something new to take in, always something captivating that awakes all my senses. I have felt this way before, when I first arrived in the U.S. just two years ago, because then it hit me, I was on the other side of the globe! Being placed in an entirely different environment, I could see what I see in a tremendously mindful way as I burst out of my own little bubble, my comfort zone where I used to take things for granted. Here and now in Tokyo, again, I feel so much alive! I have been trying to do something new every day and the past four months was full of experiences I have never had anywhere else. Read More

Searching for Sharswood: Resilient Voices from North Philadelphia

Author: mary stiger

North Philadelphia's Sharswood neighborhood is in the midst of a major urban renewal project undertaken by the Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA). This was the focus of Tyler Architecture professor Andrew Hart's Gurellia Altrusim course last semester, which challenges students to make positive changes in the neighborhood. The result of the course was a series of signs to be placed in Sharswood with a "Citizens Declaration" on them, to echo the "Declaration of Taking" signs posted by the PHA.  The exhibition, which was in the Architecture Building Lobby in February, is a joint effort between Temple, the University of Pennsylvania, and Philadelphia University. Although it's no longer at Temple, you can still catch it at the University of Pennsylvania or Philadelphia University. Read More
