In early December 2009, I began work as a lead editor on a new initiative at the College of Architecture at Texas Tech University. Initially identified as "The CoA Projects Book 2010," this student run organization set out to create a publication that would showcase the best work from the college. On May 4th, 2010 we debuted CROP 01 with a Special Edition hardcover. The journal has 240 pages and contains over 140 student projects. Also included are photographic essays on Lubbock, the architecture building and studio culture; student pictures and profiles; and a pair of faculty essays about the school in the context of West Texas and the Southwest. It is the first publication of its kind to come out of the TTU CoA, and we hope the CROP series becomes an integral part of the college for years to come. Softcover copies of CROP 01 are still available to the public via the Blurb Marketplace here.
