Choosing a Thesis Topic

My thesis topic? FASHION.

Why? As I once wrote about myself:

“I believe the creativity I possess (how little it may be) is not only limited to the designing of the built environment. Rapidly, a creative passion for all things wearable is developing inside me. Like most girls, I love dressing up. Putting together outfits and experimenting with clothes are things I enjoy so much.”

Architectural Thesis Rendering

House On Stilts

I was recently asked to do a residential design for a 197 sqm. lot in a humble community in Taguig City. It isn’t a formal work though. Pagpraktisan ko daw. And so I did.

The space on the ground level will then be used as a garage and as a multi-purpose space for family events/activities and it will be an area for expansion when they decide to eat up more space in the future. They also prefer a deck instead of a roof – well, more expansion options.
