Love the mood.
You should create architecture on your own, not the alphabet it is made of! That’s not what the secret is about!
My project teacher while scolding our group: You little rascals! You were designing theatre for 1,5 month already and still you even don’t understand it’s mechanics at all! We’re talking about evacuation stairs and stuff, not the art!
I felt there that he really wishes to uncover the real secret for us. Architecture is all about art, everything else are just tools.
That’s a movie; a movie that is absolutely must-see for every architect, either pro or beginner.
That’s a story about the journey of Louis Kahn’s son trying to re-picture his father’s image. Is consists of wonderful video captures of Maestro’s buildings, interviews with his families’ members, co-workers and competing architects. It reconstructs the life of the man who dedicated everything to architecture. That’s a great example of a real love for one’s profession. It motivates me strongly whenever I call it to mind.
That makes my mood:
———I’m sitting there at work and I realized I forgot to wake up——-
Magnificent, isn’t it? That’s totally my situation.
Gathering the architecture community on Tumblr.
Reblog this, so that we can see who’s who.
After a week or two, I’ll post every single blog that has an architect/architecture student behind it, or any blog that has something to do with architecture.
It will be a nice promo for everyone
Now I design the theatre building. It’s rather hard because you should learn lots of stuff about how theatre works. It looks like a great factory of illusions: 80% of the building is prohibited for the spectators, like an iceberg.
Take a look at the Shohetta’s Opera House in Oslo: the metaphora of the ice was designed into the main theme of the building.

My theatre is located in the center of Moscow, the theatrical capital of Russia. There are somewhat about 150 theatres in total and less then 10 architects that specialize in this tipe of building. The intitute suggested the triangle site aiming the Kremlin, the heart of the city.
There is a little square with a monument now and I absolutely don’t want to make a huge monolyte building here but at the same time I should support the street facades from both sides. So I decided use the image of a monastery with it’s wall and a yard.
Here is the sketch of the main idea:
This is just the beginning and I’m sure that there will be lots of changes, but I’m fond of the begining.
Hi! My name is Veronika and I study architecture in Moscow Arhitectural Institute, the 5th year. I’m just a beginner in this amazing art but still I have so much I’d like to share with you guys. My works, studies, thoughts, references, photos and many, many other things.
that’s where it begins.
