Sep '06 - Dec '06
At the beginning of every design project, I have high hopes for a classy, simple, ordered design that's based on the interactions of orthagonal forms to convey meaning and purpose and spacial quality.
By the end of every project I have something that often looks cool, but is convoluted, my makeshift grid is discombobulated, and I have shapes that no one's ever heard of before. I honestly don't know how I manage to do it every time.
Actually, my last project was beautifully simple like I wanted it to be, but it was because is was under check by my roommate|studio partner at the time. Oh how I miss those days.
And clearly I have nothing else to say other than what I've been doing in studio, because it's that time again where I do nothing but. I can't believe that there are less than three weeks left for me to produce a final studio project. That's so terrifying.
Here's what I have so far: It's an olympic sized community swimming pool in the park by our campus. The locker rooms are underneath the pool, which has pushed itself up against the side of a hill. There are all kinds of fun paths going through and over and underneath everything, and I rather like it, but I wish it didn't remind everyone of Zaha Hadid. I like her stuff, but that doesn't make me want to be her.
