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.

Constructing Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age
Todays lunch break was an inspirational one with a visit to “Constructing
Worlds: Photography and Architecture in the Modern Age” at the Barbican. The
exhibition included a diverse range of subject matter from the banal vernacular
of America’s Deep South to Lucien Hervé's experiential images of the works of Le
Corbusier. The exhibition starts with the birth of modernism in the 1930's but this is not the overriding idea of the work. The pervasive theme throughout the gallery is the exploration of buildings and structures of their time and unique observations through photography. I would highly recommend a visit if your in the Barbarian area.
