Sep '06 - Jan '11
It's hard to sum up one's experience of seven weeks into a few paragraphs for everyone to read. I'll try instead with a few sentences and pictures.
It's odd here at Cooper. There is so much analysis, so little design and creativity that it's starting to bother me. Sure analysis is great and all.. but when are we encouraged to actually think about what we are doing, personally? No one had been showing anything special in their drawings aside from the fact that it is an assignment, not a experiment or problem solving matter.
Anyways, I get too negative sometimes. But is that a problem? I can't accept sometimes how things are done. I don't see the strengths in having 1st-4th study other buildings for a semester, in groups let alone. I've been told it will get better, so I'll be looking up.
But, not to sound too down, it's going well nevertheless. Lectures, NYC, people, events, inspiration.. it's all abound. How are you doing?
