As discussed during the studio time, the three projects that Xing set-up, in my view integrated:
. architectural history (research and analysis of precedents in art and architecture)
. architectural communication (use of diagrams, parti and poche' as well as models)
. architectural design (architecture as design of spaces/movement and forms)
These aspects of architecture will accompany you through all your university years.Treasure them and work with them.
The best students in my group were able to engage with these three aspects translating their research and analysis (exixting architectural projects, art, context) into poetic and moving solutions.
Many thanks for this enjoyable semester with you. I learnt from you as much I hope you learned from us.
