I recently came across this new website (stuckinstudio.com) that connects resources to architecture students. I thought it was a really cool idea because to my knowledge there is no website out there that is made for architecture students, other than the AIAS organization. When looking through the site I found links to job resources and tools, a blog gives students inspiration, and articles that help students "survive architecture school."
The About page of Stuck in Studio reads:
---- Everyone knows that architecture students are always in studio. As an architecture student you are expected to pull all nighters and go days without sleep right before your final presentation. Stuck in Studio is a way to give architecture students a way to connect with other architecture students, a way to find a job after graduation, and overall a way to take a break from that project you have been slaving over for the last 6 hours straight.
Stuck in Studio has a resource page that provides articles pertinent to students (job search, competitions, and tools) as well as directs students to other sites that can help them find what they need.
The blog gives students a way to find inspiration. Unlike most architecture blogs, the Stuck in Studio Blog tries to provide articles that are specific to architecture students. Posts that tell what architecture programs are up to keep students connected, and posts about historical architecture add relevance to all that stuff that you cram into your brain for those architecture history courses.
In the future we plan to grow as more and more students start using the site. Eventually there will be a forum so that you can share discussions with studio related topics and there will be a store where you can purchase architecture student apparel. ----
I suggest that everyone take a look at the site. It says that it is just up and running and it appears to be off to a good start. They already won the January 2011 Site of the Month Award by Sapling. I can only hope that they continue to be a useful site for students studying architecture.
