I still haven't uploaded our project process photos for our Eladio Dieste light study, but to keep this entry from being too dreary and gifless, here are the (weirdly tiny?) Google image results:
I'm not sure what to think about our finished project. The foam sheets we planned to use on the walls couldn't stretch properly once we painted one side black to make it light-tight, so the walls are a bit folded and buckled in places. The roof, which was my biggest contribution, looks all right for the most part, even though we had to guess the precise nature of the altar skylight because of the inadequacy of the available research material. Oh well.
I'm worried about review: all the other groups' models are doubtlessly beautiful. Some of the detail people achieved is remarkable. One group even installed mahogany floors at 3/16 scale. I'm still bitterly envious of the Thorncrown team, with all their repetitive tasks repetitive tasks repetitive tasks repetitive tasks repetitive tasks and minutiae gluing.
Actually most of my anxiety is reserved for Finding A Summer Job. What can people with my lack of experience do? I have this big embarrassingly white blank next to "skills" on my résumé. Um, textbooky French? IPA transcription? An unnaturally good grasp of the English peerage? What exactly do they want? CAD is taught second year. I guess I can make coffee and Xeroxes. Pretty hard to screw that up, though I'm sure I'll give it my best effort.
Anyway, since questions earn comments and I haven't been getting any in, like, forever, what were your first jobs in architecture and how did you get them? I don't think I'm old enough to be a proper intern. Actually I know nothing about the whole interning process, so any general workplace enlightenment is welcome.
