Through the analysis of natural elements such as light, wind, and water, program and form were addressed. The program &ndash; a bathhouse &ndash; was to be situated on a collaborative landscape site in which each student was assigned a 2x2ft area of the plot. It was a collective and individual effort therefore to relate not only the physical manifestations of their notions of landscape, but more importantly the concepts themselves as well. <br><br><img src="http://www.jemueljoseph.com/archinect/post4/1.png"><br><img src="http://www.jemueljoseph.com/archinect/post4/2.jpg"><br><img src="http://www.jemueljoseph.com/archinect/post4/3.jpg"><br><img src="http://www.jemueljoseph.com/archinect/post4/4.jpg"><br><br> Representation II, as opposed to <a href="http://v2.archinect.com/schoolblog/entry.php?id=104866_0_39_0_C608" target="_blank">Representation 1</a> focused on digital media as a means of communication. The course took students through the basic workflows of AutoCAD, Illustrator, and Indesign through 2 main projects: the analysis of Palladian Villas (Villa Barbaro in my case) and the making of a portfolio.<br><br> I was particularly interested in the representation of temporal experience within the plan and axonometric. <br><br><img src="http://www.jemueljoseph.com/archinect/post4/analysis1.jpg"><br><img src="http://www.jemueljoseph.com/archinect/post4/analysis2.jpg"><br><br> Here are some photos from the final portfolio ...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453788/core-design-studio-2-midterm Core Design Studio 2: Midterm Jemuel Joseph 2011-03-06T19:35:32-05:00 >2011-09-23T13:01:20-04:00 <p>Here are some photos from last Thursdays midterm review: <br><br><img src="http://www.jemueljoseph.com/archinect/post3/1.jpg"><br><img src="http://www.jemueljoseph.com/archinect/post3/3.jpg"><br><img src="http://www.jemueljoseph.com/archinect/post3/4.jpg"><br><img src="http://www.jemueljoseph.com/archinect/post3/2.jpg"><br><img src="http://www.jemueljoseph.com/archinect/post3/5.jpg"><br><br> Will update the post soon with the thesis for the semester.</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453893/representation-1 Representation 1 Jemuel Joseph 2011-02-27T15:14:20-05:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>First year first semester drawings:<br><br><i> Inverted and non inverted. </i><br><br><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5256/5482646367_26687f477f.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5293/5483239764_0570baa217.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5174/5483239848_9fd513d220.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5059/5483239920_04ed8d9e6c.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5095/5482646687_48e9bea782.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5017/5483240108_aabb1eb28a.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5015/5483240236_65f079bc2d.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5260/5482646907_7a857b7b6c.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5051/5483240364_f25a93bbae.jpg"><br><br><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5211/5483240432_47a4bc25d4.jpg"><br><i></i><i></i><i></i></p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21453691/protomorphs-core-design-studio-1 Protomorphs | Core Design Studio 1 Jemuel Joseph 2010-12-23T17:17:40-05:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <i>&ldquo;We are fascinated by the unit; only a unity seems rational to us. We scorn the senses, because their information reaches us in bursts. We scorn the groupings of the world, and we scorn those of our bodies. For us they seem to enjoy a bit of the status of Being only when they are subsumed beneath a unity. Disaggregation and aggregation, as such, and without contradiction, are repugnant to us. Multiplicity, according to Leibniz, is only a semi-being. A cartload of bricks isn&rsquo;t a house. Unity dazzles on at least two counts: by its sum and by its division. That herd must be singular in its totality and it must also be made up of a given number of sheep or buffalo. We want principle, a system, an integration, we want elements, atoms, numbers. We want them, and we make them. A single God, and identifiable individuals. The aggregate as such is not a well-formed object; it seems irrational to us.
