    Yes it's the end

    gbugel May 12 '09 0


    Today was the last class of the year for the first-year M.Arches at Columbia with the Architectural Drawing and Representation 2 final review. I was reminded of what I was supposed to learn last semester- that I need to stop looking for answers behind every pencil stroke and let the process lead me into new areas of exploration.

    ...

    The actual final moment of the semester is always a little anti-climactic- you are up for days, turning things out left and right, not eating, not sleeping, questioning everything you do, but the actual final event, whether a review or a paper or a test, always passes in an instant.

    The studio reviews happened two weeks ago, but after they finished, the other classes still needed to wrap up. This period is a little odd because the huge pressure of studio is lifted even though there are three more grades to worry about.

    Despite the confusion, I always end every project full of excitement and anticipation for the next. I am eager to start the next project, but I need to realize that the fall semester is four months away.

    To all my 2008 first-year M.Arch classmates: I learned a great deal from you, and I hope you keep up the intensity and progression over the summer into next fall.
