The red hook winery project was definitely an amazing experience. The fact that we got to actually work with a real life potential client, provide a proposal and got feed back was, to me a big deal. Also the whole concept of working as a firm and having a strict time frame gave me the idea and feeling what its like working in the corporate side of an architectural firm. The fact that we were working with a real client made me cautious about my line weight and overall look of my drawings.
This was a great experience for me . It made me see how it feels too present in front of a client . I realized I have to talk more and be more prepare for next time. I got to experience what it felt like to work as a team and I realized it takes a lot of communication . I would love to do this again
It was a great experience to be able to work like a firm with my classmates. It showed how communication is the key to making our client happy. In order to present a great proposal to our client we had to have a great background on what we were dealing. Going to Brooklyn Historical society gave us a great understanding on how pier 41 was developed.
Going into this project i was extremely excited knowing that we get to work with an actual client. I have learned a lot from this opportunity given to us and im very thankful. It was hard at times in terms of keeping up with the time, the learning experience start from when we went to brooklyn historical society and found out about all the history of the site (from the water level to most of the land that wasn’t there). this project has tough me how to do a reacher in a new way.
I hope you are settling into a nice holiday celebration.
Please remember to post your links to your portfolio so I can review your scanned images. You will not get credit for an assignment unless I have the original and you have posted the scan to the portfolio site.
Also, please be sure to post your reflection on the Red Hook Winery project.
Thanks for all your hard work this semester.
This assignment was a great experience. Working together with my classmates to propose an idea that would be shown in our drawings to the owner of the winery was a challege. We all came together with great ideas and the presentataion was a success. I was able to gain a little experience in dealing with a client and having a deadline to propose the presentation. In continuing on my journey as an architectural student hopefully i would have more projects like this to encourage and give me more confidence in the future.
