based on the name of our studio (bungalow : ranch : [mcmansion] : high-rise), i think it's safe to assume we are focusing on residential design this semester! having taken classes with patrick before, the studio will place emphasis on precedent studies. research into the background of a site, building type, or specific building paired with the investigator's own experiences will be allow us to synthesize a complete understanding of the world around us. from this studio, i hope to develop strategies to deal with all types of residential design. i also hope to learn more about my design process and refine it to make me more productive and holistic as a designer. i'm excited about what the studio has to offer!
