Intersight

Our annual journal of student work

Nearly every year since 1990, a graduate architecture student has been called upon to step out of the studio and into the pulse of the school, to look up from their drawings and plans to the collective work of their peers. As Fred Wallace Brunkow Fellows, these students assume the highly esteemed role of editor for Intersight, the school’s annual journal of student work.

While Intersight has varied over the years in its format, graphic sensibilities, seriality (the annual folio was published biennially until 2004), and the zeitgeist of the program represented therein, the book is unvaryingly about the student.
