What I expect to achieve: I expect to have all my orthographic drawings, Sketch Up model and client presentation done so that I can hand in my work on Friday. What have I achieved? I managed to finish all my work as planned but my Sketch Up model didn’t go entirely well. It was a bit challenging to draw because it’s arc-shaped and I had two of them joined back to back like )(. They joined but not how I intended. Did I visit any galleries to further my knowledge? I did not visit any galleries this week instead I read issue 60 (online) of a magazine called OBJEKT© International. The magazine focused on a wide range of things from architecture, interiors, gardens, art, antiques and design. I enjoyed reading the magazine because it was rich and focused on a lot of my interest. What do I think/feel about my achievements? I am happy with my final outcome and I know that if I had given myself more time I could have improved my Sketch Up model. I am quite annoyed that when it came to summiting my project via blackboard, I was not able to probably because of technical difficulties. I am not that sure what happened but when it finally went through it was 18 minutes late, which is unfortunate because I worked really hard. What did I learn this week It always comes down to time management. I need to manage my time more efficiently so that I can make the most of what I learn and show my talents. What will I do next...? I will talk to my tutor to find out what the problem was with my blackboard and work towards my deadline after Easter for ‘Establishing professional practice’.

Establishing Professional Practice 04/03/13 Issue 60: 2.5 hectares house designed by Guilhem Eustache. I really like the layout of the page, it’s clear and I can see the building from different perspectives.
While looking at photographs from previous issues, I came across this image in Issue 53. It’s so cool but I don’t know how practical it is because the man basically looks like he had to walk in that water to get in there. Imagine that at the Hive!
