Feb '12 - Apr '13
In the final semester before graduating, GSAPPers go on their famous "Kinne trip." Each design studio travels to a different country to research and gain new insight for their project proposals.
My studio (with critic Mark Wasiuta and Craig Buckley) traveled to Brazil. We have been investigating collection(s) and territories, trying to define these "fugitive" terms, questioning the forces that create boundaries, redefining how they operate in different contexts, and developing our own theories on how architecture has agency in today's world. During the two-week trip, we tested our theoretical lenses in Rio, Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, and São Paulo. The work has been challenging, but also lot of fun (as usual!).
Some photos I'd like to share from my travels:
(These are walking palm trees, the craziest thing I've ever seen. The one on the left is walking faster than the one on the right, but both are slow.)
This is a journal of my adventures at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP) as I pursue my M.Arch degree. It includes images of my projects, classmates' work, some thoughts, and grad-student daily life.
