Carving foundations in stone

Posted by:

20 July, 2009

Well as yet another week is passing im getting a lil sadder at the prospect of coming home all the work has been made it hard to appricate the area i would have loved the chance of a couple of free days to really travel around because the really is alot of unusal perhaps unique architecture around the area.

Even the beach in the 15mins we got to get upo there a couple of weeks ago..."in the rain/fog" was and felt amazing as you have an indivaly view of planes taking off and landing.

The thought of building such a site would be phenominal as it would be such a vast area to cover it really does put landscape architure into perpective at possible area that they could cover and the effects it would have on the local landscape i really am valuing the role for town planners and urban planners as they really are shaping the way we would/could see the city in the future.

Although it is nice to have such a rich blend of architecture i see the importance of "keeping it all the same" and "fitting in" as although program spacial organiastion and circulation is important being here has reall made me realise that London has some focal points but its really great that the building are so unified.
I am sadderned at the prosect of leaving because the dream being lived seems fufiled so we kinda all need to make a new one and the workload is so high i feel until weve had a couple of weeks back we arent going to realise what we've come so far in doing i wish we had a little longer here to not just work but to reflect on what wev'e all done as literally is amazing how far we've all come in a short amount of time.

How far we won't know till we evaluate and look back on what and how far we've not  just come work wise but as individuals, we are all young and this is just the beginning to the paths we are carving - and this has given us not just the chance to carve in wood but here we are carving foundations in stone.

Have your say
