UG - Studio - 4

THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS, THE ROOF HAS BEEN THE SOLE DICTATOR OF THE DESIGN. THIS INITIALLY WAS VERY CHALLENGING, DISTURBING AND ABSURD. BUT LATER, I REALIZED THAT THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE CHALLENGE SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME. THE BEARING CONFIGURATION HAS ALWAYS BEEN LIMITED AND SHAPED BY THE CONSTRAINTS POSED BY THE SPANNING SYSTEMS AND MATERIALS. THE STUDIO THUS COMPELLED ME TO TRY AND UNDERSTAND THE BUILDING AS A UNIFIED WHOLE WHERE THE SPANNING AND BEARING SYSTEMS ARE IN CONSTANT DIALOGUE AND HARMONY. THE STUDIO ALSO GAVE GLIMPSES OF THE SHEER AMOUNT OF RESOLUTION, PLANNING AND MANAGEMENT REQUIRED TO BUILD A BUILDING. OVERALL, THE WORK GIVES ME GREAT SATISFACTION AND PLEASURE.
