Project : Theorizing Architecture
" What is one doing when one is doing architecture ? " - Simon Unwin
Through this project , it is to convey an understanding of architect' architectural theory through a direct observation or interview and analysis of his/her building. As the meaning behind real arhcitecture world is not from its form, but rather from the display of the internal logic behind it that has the capacity to convey meaning. Through the analytical illustration and essay to reveal the conceptual and experiental order of the architecture, it is hoped that better learning can be achieved through studying the work of others.
