Ahhh the memories. This video shows the ‘behind the scenes’ at the Department of Architecture Building Technology Program at MIT. Most people think that we learn how to ‘draw buildings’ at college but that is just a small part with the thought that that ability will develop during our internship with a firm. We really focus on studying shape, texture, light, color, etc. Architecture is habitable art, to be experienced emotionally as well as functionally. You may be surprised to see the abstract exploration and how it allows us to be creative in making places special.
