1] Even if your boss is your friend he may have to axe you to save his business.
2] Read the book, On Bullshit, by Harry G. Frankfurt. Carry it with you. It’s pocket-sized.
3] Do not drink at work and especially do not get toasted around your colleagues under any circumstances.
4] No matter how highly you may think of yourself you may still be a minion in the eyes of others who hold more power than you.
5] Once you leave architecture school not everybody cares about architecture or wants to talk about it.
6] All eating habits and diets acquired during school should be jettisoned.
7] The hygiene habits you kept in architecture school are inappropriate for real life; bathe regularly and change your underwear.
8] The rush and exhilaration you experience in studio may be inversely proportional to how much you will enjoy working for a firm.
9] It’s architecture, not medicine. You can take a break and no one will die.
10] Significant others are more important than architecture; they are the ones who will pull you through in the end. See 49.
Yay! So here are photos of my final review pin-up of my project with John Blood & Elizabeth Danze Design III studio (: What a wonderful semester it has been!
The Branch Library Project
(The presentation pin-up)
(My 1/8th scaled model next to the section drawing)
(Opening up my model: Western/larger half showing the western entrance)
(Opening up my model: The eastern/smaller half showing the light shaft & stairs moment)
(Final drawings, exterior & interior hybrid perspectives, section, and model)
Hopefully I can get to actually photographing them nicely tomorrow morning. These were just quick snapshots.
