So I've been pondering this a lot lately. Perhaps its because of my studio TA-ship, and wondering what it is I should be telling students. Maybe its just a bout of personal reflection. Maybe I'm homesick for the wild and crazy times that was my undergraduate education. Whatever it is, the question is this:
"What was the single most important thing I've learned till now?"
I can think of a couple of phrases and exercises posed by my professors in my B.Arch days that could qualify, but filtering out a hierarchy isn't always so clear cut. of note:
-the K.I.S.S. principle (Keep It Simple, Stupid)
-the 12 line diagram (draw your entire concept/building/project/idea/motivation using 12 lines, then do it again, using less)
-your ultimate goal: totality
-I am ultimately responsible for my own education
-a dab of super glue + a dab of tacky glue = the best way to glue together a model
the list can go on and on, but I'm ending it here.
Archinecters, I'm curious -- how would you answer the question above???
