4th week in, 1st project done. 2nd project in the works/making. 3rd project starting today/this week.
This first project is a case study on a local building, in this case: St. Monica Church. Through tectonics, we were challenged to abstract the building though line, plane and mass–as well as spacial zoning.
Unlike last quarter, where it was all about concept and how our design was propelled by that, this quarter is more about spacial organization and using that organization to guide us in our design process. So far, it’s a lot of abstraction–which is something that I had previously thought was difficult for me (at least when it comes to painting and drawing), but so far it hasn’t been problematic–just a good amount of thinking.
This quarter is also all about modeling, which, I must admit, is something that I’ve never claimed to be amazing at–I know some studio-mates with impeccable craft which always makes me drool.
so. I decided that this quarter, my goal would be to consciously work on my hand-skill/craft. So far, so good.
