    More Within the Unknown

    Through the midst of time, people have evidently decided whether knowledge is a cognitive aspect to our needs for understanding things more efficiently or if it is a necessary asset that is required for our own development and growth. In this sense, it is ideal to provide the perspective on how knowledge is represented and how it considers co-existing within our internalized world that is abruptly linked within the factually and conscious externalized world we live in. However, this ultimately brings the question of how architecture is studied thoroughly. 

    Knowledge is represented as something that has familiarity within a certain perspective, aspect, subject, or even a skillset. In addition, it can be attained to have a plethora of information that one can acquire based on education and practice/experience. On the contrary, this familiarity can also be devoted to a theoretical or practical understanding of a certain aspect that is evident within each person’s life, changing ways in which one can understand the world. Moreover, it’s best to say one can study or even approach the things that they are unaware of and unfamiliar with. 

    I took a physics course when studying computer science and engineering at UC Merced back in 2016. This was a course I had no absolute idea for, had no knowledge on what the subject was, and ultimately was not anywhere ready for the skillset it required in Math. It was eye-opening at the point where numbers started to disappear and now you have vectors integrated within the subject as well as formulas that didn’t even look anywhere near an actual human alphabet. As this seemed extra-terrestrial-like to me by having no familiarity with it in the past, it grasped my understanding with the study of motion and the world of relativity expanding the knowledge I acquired from it that connected with other subjects that existed outside the world of engineering. This formulated a base of understanding of the structures in architecture. 

    Devoting this conception to learn more about things unknown to me allowed me to understand other subjects I am currently taking. Studying structures saw how significant the loads in each beam and column can significantly affect the design parameters when designing a building. Environmental systems take a jab on how much attention you must put into human cognition and their needs when experiencing a space in a building. 

    Learning more is viewed as an aspect to extend your growth on the subject or perspective you have the most focus on and not just an asset for understanding the world and the multiplicity of subjects in its entirety. It opens up your mind to worlds you never knew were closer to your grasp.

About this Blog

Knowledge is distinct as being a cognitive aspect to our needs for understanding things more efficiently or a necessary asset that is required for our own development and growth. Seeing this in architecture, it's significant to explore other areas in the nature of architecture rather than just the parameters of its design and art concepts embedded within.
