Our students started with their very own perceptions,


Andrea's memory of returning to her hometown in Mexico after being away for so long


zoe's imaginary childhood memory called

the bubbleland

and interpreted a locus both in the virtual and the physical sphere

Turner's Blender model

Then, these space-times were shuffled by a curriculum board game.

Student Works - Week 3

Student Works - Week 6

Our students communally agreed on what they wanted to try for the finals, and they worked diligently in designing a small-scale exhibition/living space.

For the last three weeks, students have been thinking in plan, section, and detail datums. It's not a lot of time, but our wonderful 2nd-year students did their best to work on the project that they asked for.

This is what our students have been up to so far, and we are not done yet!

That's why....

Our students will benefit from your feedback!
Please provide your insights for our 2nd year students!
Comments will be shared with ARCH 201 class.
