A firm visit in Culver City

For my Professional Practice class, my group and I got the chance to visit an architecture firm called Berliner and Associates the other day that's located in Culver City. We got to ask them a bunch of questions about the business aspect of running a firm, what kind of projects they take on, what their philosophy is, etc. It was a great experience. The people working there were super chill and it showed that they enjoy what they do. The office itself surprised me. From the outside, it sort of blended into the fabric of the street, but on the inside it had a completely different feel. It's a beautiful working space with high ceilings and interesting textures. I don't know what the place is like when it gets very busy, but it seems like a very calm environment.





This was the materials library. It was filled with swatches and materials. Overwhelmingly awesome.






This is Ballona Creek. Almost two years ago, I had a studio that dealt with this creek. My site for that studio was a couple of blocks down from the firm. It was nice to visit the site again and remember all the feelings associated with that project. The gloomy weather was also reminiscent of that time.

I've been working on some conceptual ideas for my degree project. My project is turning into some sort of information storing machine....that's kind of biological. I don't know yet. I'm excited about what it can turn into but at the same time I'm overwhelmed by everything.

Since the first image is too small to show the details, I added some close up images. I'm trying to develop a style that will work for me. Hopefully I'll be able carry it throughout the remainder of the project.

I'm eating a lot of cake tomorrow.

Happy Thursday, everyone~

Everything Is Good

Had my last final exactly a week ago. Time flies so fast. It was good. I was content and I'm excited to continue my research during the break~ I've been busy hanging out and catching up on a lot of things I usually don't get to do. Here are some cellphone photos from the past week and a half~ IMAG5332


Yeah. It's winter over here.



Studio finals. Two weeks ago almost. My boards are the ones on the left~

How I was feeling the entire week while researching for degree project.


My sister has been crocheting. She made this good luck Swedish meatball for me.






Bought a dress finally.


This bunny has been hugged numerous times this week by multiple people. Much love.


I managed to eff up my left foot while playing soccer or something...I don't even know how this happened. I've been limping everywhere.






Future dream house that my friends and I will live in. It's so perfect and cozy.


Chillinnn in our living room.



Have a wonderful weekend <3


I must've died and gone to heaven...

These are three pieces I made a week ago for my thesis research class. I'm experimenting with technology to create very technical yet atmospheric drawings.

I wish I had more time to play around with this stuff.

Today sucked. Hahaha it was a terrible day since the moment I woke up. I'm okay now - I ate some ginger candy and overdosed on Jamiroquai when I got home.
