I had my first architecture exhibition early this year in Macau, China and it was the greatest experience I have ever had. It is definitely worth all the work. The exhibition was divided into 2 halls; the primary hall included all my Graduate school work in Washington University in St. Louis - concept sketches, technical drawings, renderings and physical models. The secondary hall contained concept sketches and all my traveling / study abroad experiences in Barcelona, Spain, Brazil, Buenos Aires, Argentina and a lot more!
Here are some of the pictures and thank you again for all the people that have supported me and helped me through out the entire process. Thank you for coming to the opening ceremony as well.
This is the main hall and the pink room at the back is the secondary hall.
