“Architecture is life, or at least it is life itself taking form and therefore it is the truest record of life as it was lived in the world yesterday, as it is lived today or ever will be lived” (FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT)
I’ve been always interested in architecture and design, and I always wanted to know more about buildings and how they are built. I was inspired by a lot of great architects who made me even more interested in studying architecture.
Every year at the end of spring semester, the School of Architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology holds a three day event in Crown Hall called “OPEN HOUSE IIT”.
Professors collect some of the students’ good work of both fall and spring semester and they open an exhibition at Crown Hall for people from all around Chicago to come visit.
A ceremony is also held where awards and scholarships are given to students that are nominated by their professors for their excellent work throughout the year.
My professors gave me the opportunity to put two projects in the exhibition. The first one was a full scale color installation in which I used colors to represent a painting. The other one was a full scale chair which was made using cardboard. I was really happy because these two projects were my favorite.
As an architecture student, I feel that IIT gave me a chance to participate in this important event.
