    It was definitely as busy and crazy as I expected! It got so chaotic but the 'done' feeling after review, especially if it was a positive experience, was nice. The premise of the studio project was unique, in that we had to follow extremely specific process of spatial construction but were... View full entry

    It's been a while since my last blog entry and since I promised to keep an update on the first ever all-school workshop attempt from last fall. Time flies! I can't do a detailed recap since it's been so long, but here is a quick update. hopefully the pictures will get the idea across of what it... View full entry

    So at Daniels this week, we have something strange coming up: an all school charrette for the entire week. What is going to happen is that they're going to merge the entire faculty (students and teachers, architects landscape architects and urban designers) and divide us all into 21 groups (approx...

    This week, the Daniels Faculty of Architecture Landscape and Design announced the architect selected for the school's $14 million endowment expansion. Ofcourse, this will probably be completed just as I will be finishing (i.e. three years of putting up with construction) - just like always. The... View full entry

    It's October and well into the first term of my M.Arch at Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design. And it's been almost four weeks since class started and I'm already living the unhealthy lifestyle of a stereotypical architecture student (i.e. lack of sleep, lack of food, lack of...

    I realize that I haven't written on archinect in a while, but really there was nothing too interesting going on write about, especially when I was consciously trying to avoid the internet all together in an attempt to enjoy the last few days left of summer. And now that I'm back in school and... View full entry

    For an odd reason, I had the chance to explore Cleveland Ohio this past weekend. To be honest, I didn't expect to see too much in this verdant city - all I've been hearing about Cleveland is that it's a left over city from the once booming auto industry (like Detroit) and that the city today...

    So I'm finally, almost finished being an undergrad student. yay. Deciding to do both engineering and architecture was my choice, but it sure took a long time to get them both done. I have enough people making fun of me for being a permanent student, so it's kind of nice to know that I'm really... View full entry
