Experiment 3


News Mashing
Miranda Kerr the Australian
needed to reform as "mom" of the nation.
although tough Angela Merkel feels exploited of losing her job but Angela Merkel understands the 51-year-old Miranda Kerr's is Mutating From a supermodel to an 'Iron Lady'? After the annoucement, Miranda Kerr say she now needs to get adopt to the 'Iron Lady'? , she should now pack up and leave her homeHelen Keller said that if a beaming is contacted between Miranda Kerr’s office and Angela Merkel’s office it would help Miranda Kerr of becoming a iron lady.Helen Keller once said, “Life is a great adventure, or nothing.” Source :,1518,651700,00.html
Keywords and ideas got from mashing news...Kewords, Beaming , beam, iron lady , supermodel, mutation, adventure, contact, adaptationIdea: I wonder if I could create two studio/ office for client Angela Merkel and Miranda. As using beams as form, s
uch as long rectangle shapes interlocking each other. On the same time adding adventurous elements



Angela Merkel's office, theme of the architecture is "beams", using them to echo to the landscape, such as the waterfall behind it.Form
The form of the building is to imitate the daily movement of people, when creating the studio, I refer to Angela's characteristics and personalities, compared to Miranda,Angela is more mature, more experienced and stable.The building is to mimic a person siting on the edge of the river banks, tired and laying on the rocks behind her, putting her legs in the water, resting and relaxing. The form is more still in motion.
Miranda Kerr's Studio

Again referring to the Miranda, she tends to be more energetic and younger, therfore I designed her building to be more motion, the waterfall is added to give more movement, more cheerful and lively elements to the architecture.
Bridge is reached out to connect Angela's office and Miranda's studio.
The bridge has a tunnel where it goes underwater during 3/4 and reaches the dinning area. It connects the Miranda's studio from underwater.
An automatic car is to deliver the clients from their studio and office

The Automatic car transfers clients from Angela's office to the restaurant undersea, then elevates to Miranda's studio.

Restaurant is constructed undersea, for clients to meet up and enjoy their meal with the fishes.

Arch1142 Drawing

This is for Architectural communications

The first exercise was to draw the cupsA Side View
Top View
and a section viewImprovement :
1.I ran out of space for the dish for the top view, from this exercise I learnt that the layout or prediction of the space of the paper is very important, not only when space is insufficient but at the same time the layout can determine the way how people see your plans.2. The cup can be rendered a bit more, as the inside wasnt shaded.
The second exercise wanted us to measure the dimension of a classroom and draw a floor plan and section. The measuring had to be accurate, and we had to figure out the scale of the plan.
Improvements: Should put some furniture in it or draw a person that shows the scale of the plan.

This was the perspective drawing done last week, the stairs were tricky.
Improvements: Rendering can be better

The exercise that we had to draw a perspective on the campus, although we had a similar exercise in the past semester but we did not use perspectives to draw buildings, therefore I consider this exercise more interesting than others. I used a tracing paper and ran over it with pencil then by black pin pen, the drawing did not come out so well as the pencil was smudged.

This exercise helped me in an another subject, when I was required to sketch a building in Ultimo.
Improvements : Should be careful with the smudging.
A bad quality photo of my plan sorry

Didnt have a light box, so I just put a lamp under a glass table. Worked !

This was the last assignment, The drawing of the Rose Seidler House plan.
After the tutorial today
I was quite disappointed of myself as I had not
1. Blacken the walls in the plan
2.Apply texture
3. Done a sketch drawing ( I did a 3D-perspective one)
4. Include a scale ruler, direction
5. Done some renderings
Anyway, I hope I wont do the same mistake again in the future !!!

To conclude, this workshop has taught me a lot about plan drawing, sections, elevations, scale, perspective ...... and many more.
Thank you !!

What is a Valley ?

In geology, a valley or dale is a depression with predominant extent in one direction. A very deep river valley may be called a canyon or gorge.

The terms U-shaped and V-shaped are descriptive terms of geography to characterize the form of valleys. Most valleys belong to one of these two main types or a mixture of them, at least with respect of the cross section of the slopes or hillsides.
