Before I start this project, I made a public statement. This
is how I’m being determined about things that I wanna do.
“Its final project, and
im going back to basic. Fully hand drawn and physical model from A all the way
to Z, no 3D software no nothing.
If I fail, so be
it. Whats life without any risk XD”
When I said “if I fail
so be it,” I was prepared to fail. I don’t care if it’s gonna work or not, what
I care is I need to put enough effort to make it works. If it don’t, so be it.
I’m gonna do it again. Or not? Who knows. Haha
But, I did it. Pass
the course, and made it into the exhibition. To be honest, at some point, this
project is not about me finishing my master anymore. It is about me proving to
myself how far my hand drawing can take me. Well, pretty far, just not as far
as I expected.
Anyway, started with a
few model. The idea is about hand gesture. I guess it was my final project, so I
thought I should settle with something that I like. Can’t think about anything
else, I settle with the form of hand. Honestly at this point, I was just having
And after that, I
straight away went to hand drawing. This is where I made my mistake. I made a
model, then move to hand drawn. You see, in creating or designing a space,
model and drawing is inseparable. Both work hand in hand, you always need to go
back and forth between these two methods to come up with a good design. What I did
was ; work with model, then move to hand drawn without revisit the model. Ever.
Huge mistake. But… that’s that. Lesson learned.
Other problem was that
I was designing 3 different building separately. So basically I had 3 different
forms to resolve at the same time. It was way beyond my capacity within the
amount of time that we’ve given.
So yup, I need to
resolve the building as fast as I can because I need a lot of time to do the
final drawings. The whole project ended up pretty humble with a lot of
incompletion. Only one of the buildings was fully resolve, the other two buildings
including the landscape/complex that connecting all the building as well as the
site are at the lowest quality.
So, I passed the
course, the lecturer didn’t failed me, but I failed myself. Honestly, deep
inside, I wish I can redo this course. :P
