As an architect at heart, I will always look at the world in a certain way or with a different mindset than most, simply due to my training. An example of this is the case of the Science Museum in Valencia, a place on my "Architectural bucket list" as I like to joke about it. Come and see why that is!
A couple of weeks ago, I discovered a new exhibition about a huge new development that will happen in North Greenwich Peninsula. The mastermind behind it? None other than famous (st)architect Santiago Calatrava!! Come and have a look.
Hey peeps! I received quite a few emails from some of you guys, asking about what's the best way to measure up your rooms. As your wish is my command (naturally), I've put together this post for you with all the information that you need. Come and have a look, let me know what you think.
What better way to start the New Year than to go and visit the most talked about museum in London, one that has opened just almost 2 months ago?
I've read articles and seen so many pictures of this stunning new building that I just had to go and check it out for myself. All this big hype around it made me so excited that I just had to go experience the building and, of course, its interior atmosphere. But come and see what disappointed me there instead!
So many design events have come and gone by so quickly that I found myself today thinking back to summer and its warm & sunny days. Thus I remembered I owed you the last part of my photo journal trip to Alhambra. I was so excited to visit this amazing, stunning architectural place called the Nazaries Palace. Well no more wondering, it's here and it's gonna kick some serious butt (especially if you are into this type of architecture).
A couple of weeks ago, I promised you I'd comeback with another photo journal, this time of the impressive Alhambra in Granada, Spain. Well it's here and it's amazing!! I wanted to share with you guys my experience of this place. I knew nothing of it or what wanders it holds, except for a few famous key locations that everybody knows from our little friend - Google (but honestly, I had no idea they were here).
Although not a very big fan of Arabic architecture, couldn't help but to be impressed. And here are the reasons why!
When I was young I loved to draw, especially interiors. I remember drawing a wardrobe, a window with curtains, a rug and always a bed. I remember that one day, I showed my dad one of my (exactly the same every day) room drawings. He then did something that completely changed my life at that age. Fast forward a couple of years and I am in Architecture School...What did I discover? Find out!
I remember the first time I heard the term "atmosphere" back in Architecture Uni. The teacher was telling us that it is something that just "is". You can imagine that this explanation was not enough for me, I had to further look into it. Why? Because it sounded like I was missing out on something fascinating. I had a feeling about what it might be, but had to know for sure.
