The Concorde Story

Viewfinder: The Concorde Story | Gear Patrol.

Really interesting documentary. I imagine that BIM would have made it much easier to design and build the concord instead of building wooden mockups. I know with fuel prices increasing ticket prices as is makes it difficult to keep sub-sonic airlines in business, it would be nice to see what a 21st century supersonic airline would look like.

New study shows architecture degrees yield highest unemployment

New study shows architecture, arts degrees yield highest unemployment – The Washington Post.

Architecture grad school is leaving a bad taste in my mouth (esp the second masters in sustainable design) and this is one of the primary reasons why… The reason I went into grad school at the time was because I was being laid off. The getting is still not good…Would I do it all over again, yes because I love architecture – just wish it wold love me back.
