Every spring the graduating class of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture travels abroad. The school prides itself on using the globe as an extension of the classroom, visiting a prodigious amount of locations over five continents.
In 2013 we decided to supplement the traveling program by encouraging students to post pictures while overseas.
Using their mobile devices and hashtags, we gathered nearly 2000 images of architecture, food, nature, infrastructure, relaxation, and contemplation.
In 2014 the idea was re-organized along chronological instead of geographical lines.
For each iteration, within five weeks of the students’ return, we curated, designed, and produced a printed book to give the student body at their graduation, positioned as something of a yearbook created partially by the students themselves and partially by the larger school.
This project was a collaboration between the Office of Global Network Programming and the Cloud Communications Architecture Office.
