Happy Monday!

I typically despise Mondays, except for today because the weather FINALLY cooled down to a nice 55 degrees (F). And yes, I am drinking an Italian, dark hot chocolate! It is extra breezy today, as you can see in my pictures. We shot around campus at the Administration building and checked out the inside. It is smaller than I had imagined, because from the opposing street, it looks so large!

Anyways, all is usual in studio. I know I haven’t really been posting about studio too much because it has been extra stressful these past few weeks, but the good news is that it is almost over. My last day of studio is the day before Thanksgiving, so I will actually have a nice fall break, instead of working the whole time like I did last year. My project is currently being translated from a physical, analog model to a digital model on Maya and then into Rhino (pics below – yes, I finally posted some pictures for you guys). This is my model of the Alvaro Siza House for Antonio Carlos Siza. The objective was to translate a floor plan of a house into an object using architectural operations. I chose to rotate, shift, and extrude different parts of my diagram to separate parts of house, but introducing a figural edge (i.e. the boomerang-like form) to organize the entire object as a whole. In other words, it looks like a cornucopia/boomerang/arch-bow/machine gun. Haha!

I hope to keep you guys updated often about studio, fashion, and just life 🙂

Thanks for following along,
