    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is an open minded course. The project was about designing an Institute of the Wind that could be related to the Wave Hill Academy in Bronx, NY. Your idea had to be related with the Wind movement or it can be with the sound of the wind. The project had to include classrooms, studios, auditoriums, a gallery; and it had to be located somewhere around Wave Hill.

    Course highlights:

    I really like the part where I had to investigate a lot about the wind, something that you may never think about of studying that deep. By relating that study with my own design, I learned how can every detail affect your structure in different ways. Facade design, perforations on the wall, location of every program, everything depended on how the wind reacted to the location weve chosen.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The first month of work is what you'll be working with the entire semester, so you must be concentrated and with good energies so your work can be great!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It teaches you how to design with human scale and wheel chair accessibility. As a student, you are challenged to make spaces which allow for healthy living for graduate students. You design the furniture, rooms, courtyards, social spaces, exterior spaces, and overall form of the building all to the most up to date Building Code in New York. It is a real architectural project which details every part of the project.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course is that you are designing a real building project! This project can be built and will offer you a strong piece for an architectural portfolio. This shows how you understand how to build and make rooms and spaces that are truly livable. The first architectural project at Pratt in the beginning of your education that adds real-life restrictions and is still fun!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Draw. Dimension. Describe. Those three words will save you on all of your drawings throughout your architectural career. If you make your project build -able, no matter how crazy it may look, you can have some buy it. And ultimately, the goal is to make a building.
