First Studio Project Complete

Hey everyone!

This past week I had my first review of this year in Studio. For this project, we analyzed a site on campus called The Knoll. This is an interesting spot because it used to be the main entrance and green space of the campus prior to the Northrop Mall area.  Our project was separated into three parts; first we had to analyze the physical conditions of the site, then look at the emotional and experiential qualities of the space and finally create a model of a portion of the space.

While reviews can be intimidating, overall I find them very helpful and engaging. They are a great way to learn how to synthesis and present your ideas and then receive feedback. This is one thing I love about design school. You are able to have this open dialogue between students and faculty that furthers the design process and thinking.
