Does collaging conceal the actuality of architecture or reveal its truths?
Are ruins representative of a “decaying society” or a memory of a society’s success?
Refer to Mind Mapping Exercise 1 for revised mind maps.
Each of the three mind maps were created quite differently from each other. The Preservation map is based on an idea I have been interested in, but have not pursued much while in school. To complete the map, I had to do more research rather than pull ideas from my own projects. The Collage mind map was the opposite, as it has been a theme in my work throughout school. I already had many examples of projects, from sketches to site visit photos. I decide to create this map to see if there is a deeper interest within the collage. The Landscape map was a combination of the first two. I had worked with some landscape design in a few projects, but it is something that I’m still interested in pursuing. I decided to have these three different types of maps so I can reflect on what I’ve done, explore my goals, and discover new inspirations.
