Summer studio

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but things have gotten pretty busy these past few weeks! Here’s are look at some of the final work from my section’s summer studio. Summer studio is essentially a 7-week long architecture boot camp required for matriculating M.Archs with undergraduate backgrounds in fields other than architecture. There were about 35 of us in total, and we were split into 3 studios. My section worked with Martin Hershenzon; all 3 studios were overseen by Larry Mitnick.

I’ve included pictures from the final review and also some process photos. For the final review we were each given an 8 ft by 8 ft site to present our work on. We were encouraged to identify occurring themes from our studio projects to guide our design for the site. Some examples of themes were: compression and release, upward rotation, and change in perspective; mine was projection from an origin. I’ll add more photos when I get a chance!

Hopefully this gives you a better idea of life at Penn Design!
