My name is Brian Rex I am the department head and associate professor uh, of the department of architecture at SDSU. We are the smallest state program in the U.S. We’re um, a land-grant university. We have a responsibility to the community around us. One of the unique things about the program is that every student from first year on has their own desk. We have one large studio space here on the floor. Um, we also have a really really nice shop here on the first floor. One of the biggest shops around. And they’re for Volga. We’re going to cast them this summer and put them in Volga at the main intersection, and build this kind of facade of v’s. then then around that corner the three parades they have in town are going to go around the corner And this is the site where they have their ice cream social. It’s a map of Volga, and we learn by building models and maps of places. And what we’ve learned about Volga is the railroad was there before the road and this four square was the original town. It really was just this for years. And there was no road to it for almost twenty years. I just like it every time the Campanile goes off. I have a nice office that I can hear the Campanile from And I like the way the Campanile marks timing. I’ve never driven to work. Ha! [laughing] I’ve taught for twenty-three years now; I’ve never bought a parking pass. I’ve always ridden my bicycle, no matter where I’ve lived. I think the coldest I’ve ridden in is pry about negative twenty. I mean this really in a positive way but it may sound negative – make your own job. Our students realize about halfway through their careers that there actually isn’t a job that’s going to be opening up whenever they graduate. That they’re going to have to go out and make their own job. and prove to somebody or point out to somebody what it is that they can do for people to be a productive part of society.
