The Student-Driven ‘Friday Feature’ is Underway on Instagram; ‘Happy Hour Conversations’ Happening on Zoom

Students within Wentworth Institute of Technology’s School of Architecture & Design are showcasing eye-catching work on Instagram and hosting insightful faculty conversations on Zoom.

A partnership between Wentworth Architecture Club (WAC) and Wentworth Architecture review (WAr), the “Friday Feature” highlights a new student project every week. The series kicked off on the WAC Instagram page this past Friday with the work of Nate Violette, Master of Architecture ’21, Architecture ’20.

Violette used Albany, N.Y. for inspiration when looking at post-industrial cities and what can be done to preserve their architectural identity.

“It is essential that cities do not lose what remains of their industrial heritage,” he told WAC.

Additional images can be found on Instagram. Students interested in submitting their own work may do so by completing an online form. Selected pieces may also be published in the forthcoming Wentworth Architecture Review v11.

In addition to their WAC collaboration, WAr is hosting “Happy Hour Conversations,” bi-weekly Zoom chats with Architecture faculty members. Conversations take place every other Wednesday with the next one scheduled for Feb. 17.

An archive of videos—featuring Professors NJ Unaka, Jennifer Gaugler, Matthew Arsenault and Samuel Maddox with topics including “Play” and “Alternative Career Options” —can be found online.

The most recent talk was held last week with Professor Anne-Catrin Schultz on the issue of “Fake and Real” in architecture.
