> 10^10 welcomes Brian Miele into our team! While engaged in the SEED project with professors Martha Skinner and Douglas Hecker, Brian became convinced of his future role in documentary filmmaking and has since followed the progress and engaged us in questions and discussions while capturing it all on film. Now he joins us officially as a 10^10 Fellow. By bringing his architectural perspective to filmmaking, Brian is interested in the juxtaposition of stylistic techniques with sensitive humanitarian topics. He has worked for Galatia Films on marketing Reclaiming the Blade. His first documentary short, Studio Culture, funded by the American Institute of Architects [AIAS], focused on the culture of an architecture studio. Currently, he is developing first full-length documentary, Life in a Box, recently submitted to the Sundance Documentary Fund, which follows three stories revolving around the tragedy in Haiti and relevance of architecture. Thanks so much Brian for your dedication and passion and for being one of those people who contributes to  making design accessible to all who need it.

>Congratulation Sarah Moore who joins 10^10 as our first fellow. Sarah will be our Writing Intern Fellow! We are looking forward to Sarah’s great contribution to our team with her love for writing and the built environment. Sarah received her Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Clemson University and is pursuing a Masters of Architecture student at Washington University in Saint Louis and is Danforth Scholar there this year. In 2005 she received regional awards for her poetry and was an American Voice Nominee for her short fiction. In 2010 she was invited to contribute her undergraduate architecture portfolio, titled “Architecture Narrates,” to Harold Linton’s upcoming 4th Edition Portfolio Design. In 2008 she spent a  month in New Orleans volunteering for fieldoffice for the Dry-In House’s construction, an experience which sparked her explorations of the portrayal of civic spaces in cultural narratives, and she hopes to eventually research the specific use of cultural variations of spatial language in literature.
