FSA was/is a fantastic opportunity to explore architecture in an expanded field though lectures, site visits, conversations, and lots of shared meals, leisure, and drinks. 

The program is inherently unproductive by most standard metrics, but that is its beauty. FSA is made up of a multitude of subjectivities discussing what excites them about our built realities, and in this there was no consensus, or no dominant ideology, and no hierarchy, just people meeting and talking about their passions. All this is to say that FSA was an unparalleled opportunity to explore architecture as mode of inquiry beyond the production of buildings, and I was able to spend six weeks with many amazing people in the process.
