My 1st week@Harvard GSD

Posted by:

22 June, 2009

A typical day has been 9-11am lecture, 11-12 noon drawing class, 12-1pm lunch and 1-6pm studio. Though due to the intense workload we have been there till 11pm - very tiring! It's definetly hard work with homework over weekend as well.

But it's a great opportunity and an experience I will never forget.

We arrived after a 7hr flight to sunny Boston, however since then it has done nothing but rain - ha!

Have settled into our dorms & met lots of new friends from various countries.

Lectures have been of high calibre & very inspiring. My favourite was by Leiland Cott on making effective presentations. He described the importance of presenting your architectural ideas and gave us key points and tips on how to achieve this.
