weird. You find this as being
your home. We live here.
Everything but our clothes, our
beds and our showers is here."
When asked about how
many hours he spent each week
during project time, Piatt
responded, “How many hours
are in a week?"
At first, you assume he’s jok
ing, but then you return to the
tight space at almost any hour,
and he’s still there, focused on
the work before him. And it’s the
same for all of them. They
should really consider having
their mail sent there.
"After a while, all the morn
ings just start to blend into one,"
Piatt said. “Sometimes, if you’re
tired enough, you’ll just crawl
under your desk and take a nap.
I’ll throw down a pillow and
usually tell someone to just
wake me up in a half an hour.
There was a week last semester
where I had four all-nighters in a
Martinez said it could be dif
ficult to find time to take breaks.
“Usually you have to move your
car at seven because we all park
around here (in the metered
spaces), so like seven to eight is
our hour break,” she said. “We
go brush our teeth and wash our
faces, take a shower, whatever,
move our cars and then come
back. That’s usually how it
“It's so funny because we’re
usually here before the profes
sors and they're like ‘Good
morning,’ and you’re like
Said Piatt: “Every couple of
hours someone will shout out
‘U-Stop’ and everyone grabs
their big cups, piles in a car, goes
and comes back to chat for a
couple of minutes; then it’s back
Price said he usually tried to
go home and take a shower
before class, which starts every -
day at about 8:30 a.m. “Last
semester, I had five hours of
sleep in five days,” he said.
“Most of the time I go back to my
room for just a couple of hours
to shower up, so I don't feel so
dirty. I brought my pillow
"You can't procrastinate. There are steps. We're
continuously having critiques and stuff due.
This week you have to get that done, and next
week you have to get this done. You have
research to do as well. "

tonight (Monday), so I can take
a nap. Take a power nap, and
you’ll feel good.”
All the students say there
isn’t a way around all the work
and sleepless hours if you want
to succeed, especially in the
case of assignments that don’t
have concrete solutions.
Students could work on these
"You can’t procrastinate,”
Martinez said. "There are steps.
We’re continuously having cri
tiques and stuff due. This week
you have to get that done, and
next week you have to get this
done. You have research to do as
“You can never be finished
with a project. And we’ve been
taught that nobody is ever com
pletely done designing a build
• _ ft
Piatt said the design process
went on until the last second
and that sometimes you just
had to stop working and turn
the project in.
Then the students have pro
fessors critique their projects,
and these critiques can be dis
heartening to a student who
hasn’t sleep for two days.
Said Piatt: “The professors
are nice when they come talk to
you, but some professors don’t
want to give you a compliment
because they don’t want you to
think your project’s perfect.
They’re always going to tell you
something is wrong. Once in a
great while they might say ‘that
works, that's nice,' but usually
they're like ‘that doesn’t work,
that doesn't work, etc.’ It’s not to
put us down, it’s just to make us
Martinez said at times the
professors' comments could be
hard to swallow. She had a pro
fessor whose comments were
very stem, but in looking back at
the situation, she was proud of
“I cried every single day
before coming to class for two
weeks straight,” she said. “I
would walk across campus with
tears coming down my eyes, but
now I look back and I think, ‘Oh
my God, I love that guy.'”
Piatt said during the semes
ter you almost hate professors
because they kept putting you
“You're working your butt
off, and all of a sudden he tells
you that’s crap, but in the end,
he’s just doing it for your own
benefit,” he said. "The professor
is acting like a client You have to
please the professor just as you
would have to please someone
in the future.”
Currently the third-year stu
dents are working on a hypo
thetical version of the Antelope
Valley Project. The project will
introduce dense housing along
18th Street to re-energize the
area so people can move into
the downtown area, bringing
business back to the neighbor
In wrapping up an interview
that took place around 1 a.m.,
Piatt said he knew a guy whose
roommates paid his month’s
rent because he was never there.
It doesn't seem like a bad
proposition for the students,
does it? If you spent week after
week working on drawings and
making them into models in a
tight community where you
either fit in and rough it or
you’re out, you would probably
call these confinements your
home and the people within
them your family as well.
Free rent would be a nice
