REFLECTIVE STATEMENT COURSE CONTENT: Overall, I had a great quarter with Angela Bracco, and I certainly have learned a lot from her. First of all, I have never encountered any instructors as creative as Angela, and she did open my mind with her mind-blowing concept and creative thinking. Secondly, she introduced the method of grid system and how to extract geometry from our bodies which are unheard of methods for creating architecture for me. She also makes me become aware of the importance of concept and how crucial it is to have a solid concept. At last, I constantly felt challenged throughout the quarter because of the amount of work and Angela’s creativity, but I feel accomplished in the end.

COURSE FORMAT: Overall, I feel I have improved a lot as an architecture student after this quarter’s learning. The problem my studio had to solved and the site we had to dealt with are complex architecture problems. For me, a lot of thinking and researching had to be done to make sense of those problems. During this process, I felt engaged with the design at the level I have never felt before, and my ability for logical thinking has definitely been improved. Specifically, I had to think a little bit about landscape architecture in term of where plants can grow and if they receive enough sunlight or not. Because there are a lot of programs going on in my design, I thought a lot about how to make them easy to understand during my final review through diagrams, and my ability for making diagrams has been improved. There is no question that my understanding of architecture has developed as a result of this studio. I understood that the concept I want to achieve or the experience I want to create through my design has to be site appropriate, and the placement of the programs or the circulation have to respond to that one concept. Architecture should be extremely logical, but there could be personal emotions and spirits within this logicality.

PROJECT 1: The Space Between PROJECT DESCRIPTION SUMMARY: We are required to create a model that fits on a part of our bodies to describe the relationship between a space and that part of our body. I found the space right above my hand fascinating to me because the hands are so important to architects, and I wonder what it feels like if the hands are restrained. I created this model with plastic forks that restrained the movement of my right hand to remind me how important that right hand is. I started with creating a single module and cumulate it up. PROJECT REFLECTION: I learned that the concept and narrative of a design are very important because they should be the starting point of your design, and good narrative and concept attract people’s attention. Moreover, modular architecture is also introduced to me through this project.

PROJECT 2: Atlas of the Corporeal PROJECT DESCRIPTION SUMMARY: I was required to find and interact with a physical space on campus that is significant to us. I not only studied the space, but also the relationship between the body and space with a grid system. Later on, I created a gallery with the topic of food preservation based on the skin, mass, surface grid, and structure grid I extracted through the grid system. PROJECT REFLECTION: I learned that a relationship exists between the body and space and often that relationship should be the starting point of an architectural design. We as architects are responsible for creating spaces and the experience people gained from this space. I also learned the method of grid system and how to extract geometry from it. My skill of forming a complete and logical narrative is also stronger after this project.

Poem on how to interact with the space

Inhale. Pause Inhale.

In this confinement, I see two worlds Feel the serenity At this moment, capture the peace of everlasting meditation the duality of frames the stagnancy of time

Inhale. Pause Inhale.

Contemplate At this moment, which world should I give up the suspension fluctuates linked by the string of eagerness The dilemma in which I struggle, The two equal beauties provide their attractiveness.

Inhale. Pause Inhale.

Ease the mind In this confinement, meditate Accept the presence, release oneself from the suffer For that loving the middle ground gives more relaxation

Inhale. Pause Inhale.

PROJECT 3: Foodways PROJECT DESCRIPTION SUMMARY: The goal of the project is to create a community space that celebrates and educate people about food at the town of Guadalupe California. I decided to introduce the method of curing in the aspect of preserving food because Guadalupe is an agriculture town locates next to the Pacific Ocean, it is suitable for planting and salt harvesting. I designed a journey that introduces people to the method of curing with the continuation of developing the grid system I designed for last project. PROJECT REFLECTION: I have a deeper and better understanding toward the grid system and how it helps me understand the placement of programs, circulation, structure, and skin. I also learned the importance of concept developing and the rational thinking process, and every design decision that needs to be made should be related to the concept. I also learned that a project can always be better, and there is no ending to the improvement.

SF Field Trip REFLECTION: I feel very lucky that I was given the opportunity to go on field trip with my studio and studio instructor because it is always helpful to experience architecture from more perspectives especially in an urban condition. There is very limited amount of perspectives of architecture within a studio compare with an urban environment. It felt good to gain new perspectives and take a break from studio.
