No matter what city, Kelsey needs her coffee..."This was a trip of a lifetime! Getting to take a class trip with a group of students so diverse, all bringing something different to the table, was incredible. Thankfully we also had our trusty tour guide/professor, Wayne Place, to explain the city in a way we would have never understood before. Our day spent with SOM was also amazing, we all look forward to their help and guidance this semester."
Jeromy with the TransAmerica Building in the background. "It was a whirlwind tour of skyscrapers and Asian cuisine. We had a blast and if I learned one thing, it's this: If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair!"
Yujie at the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. "This trip made us grow, not only as an architect -- of course we learned a lot about the urban environment, architecture, and structure -- but also as a group of people. We understand each other better even though we are totally different from each other, there are now strong bonds between us."
