My Second Life (Blog 4)
I like to imagine a me… free…
I have no boundaries, no limits, and no destination.
I am alive, unbound, uncontrolled, and wild.
I am the creator of my dreams…
This is my brain on creation...
Without organization through the architectural discipline- designers LIvE outside reality.
With. . . organization through the architectural discipline- designers think outside reality.
If my goal in school was something other than to be an architect, it would probably be to hold some type of scientific degree; which was my first intended major, in fear of loosing my passion for architecture. [‘No school’ is not in my vocabulary.] While in the pursuit of a science degree, I would probably continue with my long hobby of free-sketch architecture; it helps me to get my mind off of actual life. This is my imaginary place of freedom. Here, I can be the architect and the client. Between the lines of squares I see light and shadow. The paper becomes a code that only I can see. I have imagined effects on architecture from the suns position and its outcome on light, to rocky landscapes and potential downpours. I’m not sure how to properly draw open-ceilings, half walls, or countertops. I don’t know the rules for barring walls, plumbing or electrics. I am not an engineer or a classical physicist. My drawings are purely imaginary.
I am learning of ideas before I learn these ideas in school. Just a few weeks ago for example professor Sercowski of the University of Minnesota spoke of Palladio at a lecture in downtown Minneapolis. He explained how architecture was considered with rainwater runoff and was gathered together in a central courtyard. Just weeks prior to this intriguing Venetian lecture I too was experimenting with these same ideas. I was amazed on how similar my ideas were on a topic I had no prior knowledge of.
You could take the ‘architecture school’ program from me, but never my imagination.
