The purpose of this blog is to document and follow my educational progression in the field of architecture. It was first set up in 2011 as a tool to share my experience on the MSc Architectural Technology and later on the Master of Architecture at NTU. The content and purpose has constantly evolved over the years and it is now a tool to assist my registration as an architect through the RIBA Studio Certificate.

I stumbled upon this hydro-electric station on archdaily.com and the concept struck me as having a similarity with the transition I have been through from engineering to architecture. The deep technical core of the building is wrapped in a elegant concrete exterior that marries the structure with the protected plant built in the 1950's along the river Iller, Germany. The project has significant relevance to my Design Thesis on Boston, Lincolnshire as it is concerned with the boundary of a river and its control over a place.
