I come to this realization much later, and only recently in college. For a long time, I could not accept the incongruences between imagination and reality, but I’ve come to accept that they are really one thing in architecture. All reality, or all buildings come from imagination, and all imagination is derived from existing buildings in the form of memory. Memory, to me, is an imperative bridge between the two. This realization only comes with the addition of my box of tools that I only started collecting recently, on top of my box of
The entire process has been analysed for the study and has been found that various other things are also involved in building an image of the city. Although every person has their own way of creating a mental image of the city, they tend to be in unison when grouped together. To understand the reasoning behind the same, a study was done by involving people to identify general images which covered common views and other urban elements. The studies conducted by the author clarifies that the book talks about the perspective to the city from various elements and parts of the city, in contrast to understanding social cultures, needs and functional parts. These perspectives play a vital role in building a mental image of the city.
During this period Knight enlisted in the army and was able to complete one year of service before he decided to give it up. Phil Knight came back and enrolled at Stanford University for the Graduate School of Business. This is where Knight was able to find his calling after taking a small business class. Knight found Frank Shallenberger’s business class very interesting and become intrigued to learn more. One of the assignments involved inventing a new business which challenged Knight’s limits.
To be frank, I was an average student in school but I was one of the top scorer in the National Aptitude Test for Architecture exam, thus giving me an enhancement to learn more about a subject which I like and thrive upon and making me design spaces which creates experience to the users and learn more about architecture. I designed a house with an office room in my first year of my college and i made a model of lobby of the office. a feature where the upper part of facade had a trellis which had art deco pattern on it. As the light penetrated the trellis to reach the curved facade and the ground. To see that in the model in three dimensional made me to explore the concept of light and shade and reconnoiter various facets to make a place experience-able.
Initially, I thought symmetry was just a simple function of geometry e.g. reflection only, taught in mathematics since primary school. I didn’t know it was an important form in art and architecture till I enrolled onto this course. It was very enlightening to see how symmetry can be furthered explored and how the mathematics involved can be further deepened, e.g. figuring out space groups and planes and axes or unit cells.
Palladio took this and set a precedent for the way the public could be taught architectural techniques through early printed books. His work resulted in a series of four books; the first book of the series consists of information and images related to building techniques and materials, drawn in vivid detail, as well as a devotion to the five orders of architecture; Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian and Composite. The second book included diagrams and drawings of palaces and mansions of Palladio’s own design, those located in the area of Veneto, Italy. The third book included information concerning bridges, streets, piazzas and basilica design of mostly Roman origin, tying in with the fourth and final book, which Palladio used for reproductions of ancient roman temples such as the Pantheon. Palladio designed his works after the principles of Roman architects Vitruvius and Alberti, who too based their architecture characteristics on math and symmetry and further away from exaggerated ornamentation.
Introduction In my self-other project I decided to look at the other more deeply than the self. At the time I started, I was intrigued by human beings and how they interacted with me and how unique each and every single one of them are. I was also intrigued by how artist on tumblr made artworks of themselves and others, how they used color to create different moods and personas and how detailed and abstract their artworks were. Development of theme. I was also intrigued by modern houses, mainly because I wanted to pursue the architecture and engineering route, furthermore I was fascinated by the way geometric shapes were arranged to create a building, particularly how rectangular and cubic shapes were placed in unity to create something that would eventually be called home.
With this understanding, I always framed and rendered my life towards predetermined goals. I got enrolled in Bachelors of engineering program in civil engineering in C. K. Pithawalla College of Engineering & Technology, Surat which is rated among one of the best engineering colleges in Gujarat, India. Once I secured admission in one of the most contentious and meticulous civil engineering programs in India, I found civil engineering even more compelling and demanding than what I had thought of it. Right from the second year, my objective was to gain knowledge and understand the subject thoroughly rather than just scoring grades. I was unable to score decent grades till my 4th semester but then once I understood my goal, I scored and improved with huge margin from third year.
For example, when an architect sketches the outline of a building of a site survey, data is created. The general size of a building is now known and general program requirements and planning ratios can be applied. Similarly, when the architect is working out the building plan, data is being created that can be re-presented in interior elevations, sections and schedules. Conventional tools require that this data be re-derived at the point in the project where related information is required. BIM tools capture this data at the moment it is created, store it and make it available for re-presentation as information in other documents as needed.
On dismantling these devices, I was amazed by the several devices inside. When I was studying in my 10th grade, we were given a task to undertake a mini project, that’s when I made a simple fire alarm using a heat sensor and a couple of transistors and diodes. Later on, I figured out that hardware had several limitations that only programming could overcome. With almost every small task of this world performed through programmed devices and the fast-paced innovations inspired me to delve deeper and gain more knowledge through research. I did not want to compromise with my admiration but this ardent interest lets me pursue my passion of becoming an Engineer.
