My director really was not kidding when he said that this semester will be much busier than my previous one. I have not had a minute to update for the past couple of weeks. Poor me too busy working and travelling. I am the luckiest person ever.
Anyways, time for an update. Since I have posted I have had midterms, done a competition, traveled throughout Italy and did a group studio project with the students of the ENSAV school. Needless to say that my brain has been in about 20 different places at all times (more so than usual).
Below is a selection of my pictures from Florence and Rome. Two wonderful cities with such a rich character, I would easily spend a year in each and still be discovering the intricacies of the plans and the architecture. But what I was most captivated with was the use of sun and shadow that was always present. I’m not sure if it was because Paris does not believe in sunshine in the winter, and so I was discovering this phenomena all over again, or that these cities really gain an extra layer of an already rich texture that really creates a dynamic framework for living. Either way, this trip was wonderful to see how something as simple as sunlight can force an interaction between autonomous buildings that further binds the characteristics of a city.
