a DEMOCRATIC means of EDUCATION and INFORMATION DISTRIBUTION

MINDSCAPE :: a mental or psychological scene or area of the imagination

COLLECTIVE :: denoting a number of persons or things considered as one group or whole; of, relating to, or being a group of individuals; involving all members of a group as distinct from its individuals; marked by similarity among or with the members of a group

MINDSCAPE COLLECTIVE :: an education system based on transparent streams of information; a democratic dispersion of information and critique to all members of the school of architecture

The mindscape collective calls for a two-way conversation between the faculty and students regarding all aspects of their education and social life.  It encourages a more intense interaction from students allowing them equal access to all systems and networks that were previously solely presided over by the dean.  The Dean’s role then becomes that of an advisor and filter to the network of communication.

Thousands of pulses within the fractal system grow in intensity throughout the semester building to the events of the midterm and final reviews.  Focusing on the event of the midterm review, an increased level of communication between students and faculty will elevate the quality of the project given the resulting discussion and analysis of the proposal through the mindscapeCOLLECTIVE network.  This system archives the comments for future growth of the project- the archiving process also provides extensive resources for other current and future students to access and rely on as a benchmark for their project development.  The goal of the network is to be organized in a pneumonic way so that the user instinctively knows the engine’s structure and internal relationships.  The network is easily able to measure and analyze activity use and the quality of the provided comments and interactions.  The dean’s constant connection to students and faculty through the network allows him to be more accessible to students through “virtual rooms” within the network.
