Monday night was the exhibition of our trip to India in 2015. It was a story on a wall of photographs, sketches, funny photos with funnier quotes, a wall of student architectural designs, and all covered by colorful scarves and sari sashes displayed as in the bazaars all over India.
Through the glass on the left you can see the design projects at a distance on the left of the Amdavad kites!
Here is an impromptu last photo with Dean Douglas. He came for a week’s visit while we were in Amdavad. He had never visited India before, but he too, caught the Indian magic!
And there is dbell as the students call him, my husband who inspires students either on campus or in foreign lands. Several of the professors asked how he got the students to produce so much work while they are in a far and very different land, where everything, and everywhere , and everyone is new. David is doing what he always dreamed of doing. . . . teaching. . here , India, Italy. . . . . He has very high expectations for himself and the students. Take the sketches. . . . notice the far right corner. He tells them that sketching is an important skill for architects and skills improve with practice. ” Just do it and oh BTW, you will get a grade on your sketch books!” Works every time!
David’s love of architecture, inspiring students, love of travel as a lifelong learner have and demands of quality have created in him the skills and heart of a “Master Teacher!”
