I like my coworkers and the projects were fine. &nbsp;I just needed a bit more ownership in what I was doing. &nbsp;I think that is a problem that school endears us to. &nbsp;We have so much freedom to do useless things and string all those things together into a concept and cohesive application. &nbsp;I did some research onto 3D printing, namely fused filament fabrication. The school bought some Makerbots in my last semester (<a href="http://3dprint.cul.columbia.edu/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">a collection of all the things being printed at Columbia</a>) that I believe students have direct use, could be wrong. &nbsp;Otherwise we had to submit it to OPS to print. &nbsp;</p><p>A...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/74529034/36-tina #36: TINA*!!!!

For example, the bus queue begins when you think of traveling somewhere.&nbsp; The thought, purchasing tickets online, downloading e-ticket, packing your belongings, walking from your apartment at the Hudson Yards through the Highline, waiting at the gate for the bus, and finally riding the bus to Atlantic City all make up the queue.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/45444058/30-uh-oh-end-of-year-two #30: Uh-Oh, End of Year Two Anthony Sunga 2012-04-18T14:47:19-04:00 >2012-04-22T21:56:19-04:00 <p> Song:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtH68PJIQLE" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Oblivion</a> by Grimes<br> Place: 500 N Living Room Studio<br> Time: 2:45 PM</p> <p> My project for studio has made a major evolution at 3/4 review.&nbsp; It's literally a different project from two weeks ago.&nbsp; Also, I love <a href="http://www.prezi.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">prezi</a>!&nbsp; Great digital presentation format, much better than slides!

I asked how could someone describe the motivations of a project if whatever we're doing is emotionally driven. Of course I had my preconceptions of his answers. 1. Emotion is just a manifestation of logic. 2. There is a secret language we haven't been taught yet about verbalizing emotion (possibly spoken in Esperanto only). 3. You're being stupid Anthony! Architects don't have emotions! <br><br> We concluded that it's not good in a learning institution to try to use emotions to verbalize a project because it doesn't help the student to rationalize ideas. ...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453758/11-atmosphere-iii-cell-review #11:Atmosphere III:Cell REVIEW Anthony Sunga 2010-10-29T16:29:02-04:00 >2011-09-23T13:01:20-04:00 <p>Song: Whip My Hair by Willow Smith<br> Place: 5th Fl North: Avery Hall<br> Time: 4:20PM<br><br> We had our review last week and this time around we didn't combine sections together. It took about 5.5 hrs for 12 students. The reviewers were much more critical this time around and actually had dialogue going, albeit amongs themselves only. <br><br> In comparison to last review, the drawings are starting to really develop. A lot more exploded axons, analysis drawings looking more like infographics, and heavy on computer graphics. I have to say the projects were driven by site and everyone picked really unique sites. We had people hanging on lightpoles, off cliffs in the grand canyon, atop NYC watertowers, defunct smoke stakes, and for me inside the Naica Cave.<br><br> My biggest criticism was that they didn't see a concise strategy and they said they really appreciated my drawings, graphics, and layout. I think I had to clearly articulate whether it was a system to lay down track in any cave or site spe...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453737/10-atmosphere-iii-cell-naica-mine-rollercoaster-prelim #10: Atmosphere III: Cell (Naica Mine Rollercoaster) PRELIM Anthony Sunga 2010-10-09T14:40:18-04:00 >2011-09-23T13:01:20-04:00 <p>Song: Go Do by Jonsi (of Sigur Ros)<br> Time: 2:33:45PM<br> Place: Living room/Studio <br><br> We had a preliminary pin-up yesterday for our third project. The prompt is to design a cell/pod for 1 or 2 climatologists to do research and live for 12 hour shifts. <br><br> I was looking at fantastic geological sites as a proxy measurement of global weather and found the Naica Mines in Mexico which house the largest crystals in the world. The longest of which is 34 feet. I propose an overhead track to carry the scientists through the mine that could be used later on as a tourist track to visit the system. <br><br> This is just a preliminary board to show my progress so it is very weak. The biggest criticism is that I need to make a more solid argument as to why this track is needed and show how it will get constructed. We have a little under two weeks to finish alongside the Advanced Drawing and Rendering course project where we're modeling a contemporary building and animate it. I chose the Seed Cathedral b...</p>
