Below are a few of the images from Monday’s review. Thank you to all the reviewers, and most of all, thank you to all the students.
“Nothing is a mistake. There’s no win and no fail, there’s only make.”
Link to ARCH 352 + 452 – RULES FOR STUDENTS + TEACHERS which we discussed during our last group meeting on Wednesday.
JOHN CAGE | RULES FOR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS
RULE ONE: Find a place you trust, and then try trusting it for awhile.
RULE TWO: General duties of a student – pull everything out of your teacher; pull everything out of your fellow students.
RULE THREE: General duties of a teacher – pull everything out of your students.
RULE FOUR: Consider everything an experiment.
RULE FIVE: be self-disciplined – this means finding someone wise or smart and choosing to follow them. To be disciplined is to follow in a good way. To be self-disciplined is to follow in a better way.
RULE SIX: Nothing is a mistake. There’s no win and no fail, there’s only make.
RULE SEVEN: The only rule is work. If you work it will lead to something. It’s the people who do all of the work all of the time who eventually catch on to things.
RULE EIGHT: Don’t try to create and analyze at the same time. They’re different processes.
RULE NINE: Be happy whenever you can manage it. Enjoy yourself. It’s lighter than you think.
RULE TEN: “We’re breaking all the rules. Even our own rules. And how do we do that? By leaving plenty of room for X quantities.” (John Cage)
HINTS: Always be around. Come or go to everything. Always go to classes. Read anything you can get your hands on. Look at movies carefully, often. Save everything – it might come in handy later.
This ARCH 352 + 452 – Studio Document – Small Stadium Big Landscape is the document sent to our visiting reviewers. Hopefully this document will also help you frame and communicate the implications of the work each of you have done this semester.
The review will start at 1:00pm and end at 5:00pm. The first seven (7) presenters should be pinned up and ready to go at 1:00pm. The rest of you must have all your work completed and ready to be pinned up during intermission or already pinned up on the back of your alloted panel. I will set-up the presentation room and post names on your corresponding panel on Saturday evening after pencils down. All of you are required to be present on Saturday, April 26th at 5:00pm in Depuy. If you cannot be present during pencils down, you must have your work on your desk for me to see. Please schedule your time and take into account that printing is not something you should do 20 minutes before the review on Monday.
This is the link to one of the building shop PDFs I was discussing in class. There are several simple, clear and diagrammatic images made from physical models. Please use this document as a reference. I encourage you to think of other graphic examples of constructed images you find compelling. You can think of this as a single image or a series of images. Think about how to make the constructed image an effective part of your presentation.
ARCH 352 + 452 – Mock Review has the order for Wednesday’s Mock Review. Each pair of students is expected to be pinned-up and ready to review at the specified time. We will have four (4) total pin-up areas for Wednesday. This means that once you have presented you will have to pin down in order to make room for the rest of the students. This is NOT the final review order. I will post the final review order on Thursday after Wednesday’s Mock review.
I will be around throughout the week in case you have any questions. However, at this point you should be working towards outputting your presentation. Remember to continuously test output. Test prints at a smaller scale to see how your drawings and images are reading.
I does NOT matter what the drawing looks like on the computer, it only matters how it works once it is printed.
When you get tired of drawing, modeling and thinking about your project…read. Some of you have already read passages from Cecil Balmond’s book, “Informal”. Those of you that have looked at ARUP’s work have also come across some of his projects. If you have not had the chance to read and study some of his work, please do so.
This PDF is also pinned-up in studio BALMOND_Informal
I have also pinned-up excerpts from ALLEN & MCQUADE – Landform Bldg
Below are a few images from some of your in-progress section models. Please continue to work and develop your presentations according to the criteria we have discussed. Wednesday will be an important mock-review. I will post a pin-up order on Monday and review your presentations individually on Wednesday.
We will meet at 2:00pm the south entrance of the AME site on Friday. Do NOT wear open-toe shoes. If you have a hard-hat, vest and/or safety glasses please bring them.
