Abstract:
How do students coming from lower division architecture transition into creating structures that can work in the built environment? As lower division students, we focus on space and experience but often neglect the constructional logic of making within itself. The process of construction can be beautiful and showcase the work and the thought that goes into creating a building. This emphasis on construction adds an entirely new experience to the architecture. The celebration of structure is beautiful and gives an insight of the building in its purest form. ( en )
