Editor’s Note

Why do architects always take themselves so seriously…blah, blah, blah…if we’re acting out charades anyway let’s come out and actually have some fun. The self-referential game of design we supposedly play at, with all its jargon and stern expressions, is so cynically performed that the fun, play, and leisure which feed and nurture creativity become practically subversive.

To start the semester off we present a moment of laughter and light-heartedness, the likes of which exist between the cracks of Rudolph Hall, but that nonetheless bind us to our communities. That’s what matters in the end, no? If you’re not enjoying your time, you’re doing it wrong.
