Unit 7 Proposal

The Taste of Here and Now

Section 1
In this Foundation course, I have progressed a lot in terms of the design process by learning how to effectively communicate what I see in my mind through 2D visualizations and 3D models. I have also learned that the idea is not something plucked from thin air; instead it is a response to a problem, to research, to a site and to people. Practically, the act of making has helped me to understand structure and form in a tangible way and I have learned to use my sketchbook as a tool instead of an aesthetically pleasing piece of work. Overall, the course has become a space for me to discover what I want to make, how I would like to approach this and why.

Section 2
My interest in architecture grew when I realized that I care a lot about the way buildings are designed and the way we create the spaces we inhabit everyday because in the end, architecture shapes and holds our lives in a way that cannot be avoided.

My interest in philanthropy has steered my interest in architecture into the field of sustainability. I aspire to design in a way that speaks powerfully and gives back to the world what I have had the privilege of being born with. A handful of those that have influenced me include Shigeru Ban, Elon Musk, Ayn Rand, Bjarke Ingels Group and Rem Koolhaas.

Section 3
The narrative of agriculture plays a key role in humanity’s existence. In the urban environment, agriculture has lost its connection with people, remaining only in the final step, as produce to be cooked and consumed. This project will question whether the act of farming still has a place in relation to the average Londoner. Branching outwards, it will address the major problems of the supply of food in relation to the world’s increasing demand due to population. Through primary and secondary research, the aim is to understand these relationships and problems and see how they can be addressed. I will look at the basics from soil and small scale farming to the latest research and development of agricultural productivity. I will also explore factors of locality, the types of food grown and their nutritional value, interest, (or the lack thereof), from the general public in the processes of putting food on the table, food waste, over consumption, the efficiency of meat consumption and whether or not it should be reduced. 

The generic answer of urban farming will also be examined through site visits and research to see if it is a sustainable and effective solution. I want to see how I can transform the typical urban farm to be more productive, popular and sustainable. In the end, I intend to present a possible solution, large or small scale, to meet the needs of London’s population, which could potentially be applied worldwide.

My main goal in terms of making is to explore a new process and/or material that I have not worked with before. In terms of the design process, I intend to continue translating from research to 2D drawings to 3D making in an attempt to better understand these problems and to find a possible solution. 

Section 4
I intend to evaluate my progress by scheduling very meticulously with my Action Plan and regularly speaking with my tutors, as I tend to get distracted easily. I intend to maintain the quality of my reflective journal to help me assess the development of my thoughts, ideas and processes and to work consistently in my sketchbook and design sheets as quantity in a vague sense does measure progress.

 Action Plan

Notes for self:

-Keep up consistent reflection.

-Bring sketchbook to all galleries, site research, and while researching to keep the work in the sketchbook consistent as I’ve strayed from it in the past few projects.

-Consult with tutors each week, even if it is just briefly. Perhaps every Thursday for consistency so that I don’t forget.

-Will complete later weeks of action plan in more detail as they days approach and I’m more certain of where I’m at.

 

Week 21
