NJIT Architecture Students Learn, Brick by Brick, From Masons http://www.njit.edu/news/2005/2005-118.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2005/2005-118.phpMon, 28 Mar 2005 00:00:00 -0500 For three days, architecture students at NJIT will abandon their studios to work with skilled masons who will turn their abstract designs into something more concrete: namely, brick walls. During the Masonry Design Build Competition, the students, all of whom attend the New Jersey School of Architecture, will spend April 2-3 working with the masons, and a third day on April 4, displaying their building projects and giving presentations to judges. “Masonry Day is a great example of hands-on higher education,” said Urs Gauchat, dean of the New Jersey School of Architecture. “It helps college students develop a respect for the craftsman's skills and teaches them that their designs and their plans are not an end in themselves.”
