Architecture class at ArtCenter’s Saturday High: week four. My creative teens are practicing how to think like an architect — ready to tackle step 8 of DIY Like an Architect: 11-step method — zeroing in on a floor plan.
Architecture class at ArtCenter’s Saturday High: week three. We are working on understanding scale and proportion. First two sessions were devoted to initial brainstorming steps of DIY Like an Architect: 11-step method. Today my creative teens are sharing the insights — building presentation skills is one of the objectives.
Even in my wildest dreams, I had never considered becoming an architect until someone asked: “Why don’t you study architecture?” He was a stranger — my jaw dropped: “But I don’t even know how to draw!”
To think like an architect is to approach life without pre-conceived notions with a child-like sense of wonder.
We’re finally at the end of the series of ten posts that outlined a few design ideas I employ in my own life. Last but not least, I’d like to show you an organization system I’ve designed. It's called "Tend-on" Group.
I became acutely aware of my aversion to “going with the flow” when pregnant with first child. Perhaps, that’s when I realized that every little step matters. It has consequences. It is being observed and emulated. Clearly, I have to make sound choices. I need to be a responsible role model because children love copying their parents.
We all need our own territory to manage emotions. Even if it's just a favorite chair to come back to. I have a chance to claim an underused garage and convert it into my own studio and home office. Hence,garage conversion design ideas.
workshop REGISTRATION IS OPEN!
That is to say, I am teaching a 3-hour DIY Like an Architect workshop at ArtCenter College of Design on two consecutive Sundays: June 21 and June 28, 2015.
In my previous post I talk about designing for the way you really live. But there's no need to dwell on limitations. Most importantly, you do not need to compromise. Even when dealing with a tiny space. Below please find some big laundry room design ideas.
