Project 1

Project 1

 

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.

WOAH.

It’s school time already? Well. Sorry I didn’t update during the break at all! I’m back now, and I’m so excited for this quarter and all its possibilities.

Updates:
-I got a job at Whole Foods! I love it, although working and school (and AIAS and APX and SED) will definitely be a balancing act.

-Working on the portfolio now, exciting!

-1st studio project is already up and running, so you’ll be seeing that soon! I’m going to be better about scanning my sketches in also this quarter. Looks like I’ll be seeing the DAAP library that much more often (totally okay with me. I love the library).

and much more, but I’ve got some other things I gotta take care of this morning before class!
