Michael Teferedegn

My name is Michael Teferedegn and I am in college to learn as much as I can, because we all know that knowledge is power.

I never really had any interest in technology as a kid, because I was raised in Africa, Ethiopia and It was not a technologically advanced country to say the list. My dad who traveled to America a lot would show me how to use interesting programs such as java and command prompt on his computer and I was immediately hooked on technology. After I moved to America at the age of 12 I was so surprised on how much technology had evolved, and I was almost mad on how I was blind too what was going in the rest of the world. I don’t want people to miss out on all the amazing things that technology can offer that I had missed out on when I was a kid, so I want to show and help people get used to technology in a way it can help them out and make their lives a little easier.

I don’t have that much creativity but I can work hard and learn new skills that I can use to make up for my lack of creativity. Graphic design is a subject I am interested in because it is basically the part of technology that people are exposed to the most and it is something that can be so diverse and interesting. I believe that it is the face of technology and no matter how much I know about 0’s and 1’s if I can’t present what I created to people in a way that looks good, appealing and gets my idea across all my work would basically be useless. Graphic design is also connected to a lot of history and it is always fun to know more about history and why we are where we are at present day and maybe get a little insight on how the future might look.

ARCH1101 Introduction to Architecture, FA2020

ARCH1101 Introduction to Architecture, FA2020

The Introduction to Architecture provides the foundations for a “visual literacy” of the built environment. Using New York City as a living laboratory, students explore concepts of design, composition, and construction in the context of the city through their direct experience of buildings. By practicing the basic skills of drafting, sketching, and reading about buildings, and with the opportunity to present their understandings to others through written assignments and verbal presentations, students will develop methods of representing and presenting architecture verbally and graphically.
