I read Bjarke Ingels’ “Yes is More” by chance when I was a night guard during my military service, leading me to the path of architecture. Back then, I thought crazy-shaped architecture is good architecture. However, this is what I have learned at the College of Architecture over the past five years. The most important thing in architecture is not the building’s shape but how to change the relationship between people with that space. I believe even If a single wood board is at the right time and the right spot, it  could be good architecture.

The Capstone Award, Award

Determined by School Of Architecture Faculty and Capstone peers, The Capstone Award is given for the work that best exemplifies what the Spanish philosopher Jose Ortega y Gasset called a project for life: life as a self-invention. Intrinsic to this notion is research + experimentation, the free + ordered play of the imagination, + a methodology that advances theoretical thinking as well as an empirical demonstration. A necessary condition of the award is a clear hypothesis that tests the work for fundamental aspects of the human activities of building, dwelling, thinking.
