[PT] Para o dia 24 de Novembro está marcada uma greve geral. As questões colocadas são várias e afectam os trabalhadores e o trabalho do ateliermob. Tal como noutros sectores de actividade, por unanimidade, decidimos fazer greve.
Estamos cientes que no campo profissional em que nos movimentamos esta decisão política - agora tornada pública, não será seguida por muitos, mas estimamos que se perceba que tomá-la é tão político como nada fazer.
[ENG] "Welcome To The Urban Revolution: How Cities Are Changing The World" by Jeb Brugmann - that Bloomsbury Press kindly sent us, is one interesting essay about the world of cities. By the way, we also link the online discussion on Glass House Conversations hosted and moderated until the end of the week by Geoff Manaugh (the author of BLDG), that also tries to think about city political rise.

[ENG] A student who enters college as a prospective English or biology major has a pretty good idea of what he or she’s getting into: chances are, that student has already taken Advanced Placement classes in his or her chosen subject. Not so for the would-be architect. Few high schools teach technical drawing; none prepares students to slog through all-nighters in the studio, or to endure withering crits. How can a 17-year-old be confident that he or she will actually like architecture school and succeed in it?
That teenager would find out at an architecture summer camp. These camps (programs, really) allow high-schoolers—and, increasingly, college students and adult professionals—to experience architectural education firsthand for a few weeks in the summer, an appetizer they can try before the main course of a B.Arch. or an M.Arch. degree. Today there are 66 such programs around the country, most hosted by colleges and universities, a few by nonprofits or arts institutions, according to Lee W. Waldrep, assistant director of the School of Architecture at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Their popularity has surged: “In the ’80s, there were maybe 20 or 30,” Waldrep notes. This is partly because the schools themselves reap great benefits from the programs—extra revenue, a means of employing graduate students, and, perhaps, a small boost to recruitment.
We sent three reporters to three different campuses, where each of them spent a day learning the design-camp ropes. Read on to see what they found.
