Finally I finish my drawing and I’m so happy to finish it!

I use 1:100 scale

I like to be simple at the outside because I want to be more focused on my structure.

I use blood red and natural gray for my apartment. I use to be more sticking and different to others.


3rd :)

Now I finish my sketches and planning for my structure. So I was starting to do a perspective.

I do the method of plotting J

For it way easy than the other method, the measure.

At first was having trouble figuring out what scale that I will use and what angle that I will used. At first I use 30 – 60 degrees. But I don’t like the outcome it’s too stiff in the left side.

Do I change my angle and use the 60-30, its way better than the 30-60 angles. It was exact and perfect view for my design.

And this is my DRAFT:

I start at a box 8 x 8, 9 m height and 10 x 12 , 6 m height.

I finish my DRAFT


I hope I the outcome will be the same in my sketch up drawing 🙂

I first made it at GOOGLE SKETCH UP 🙂


Baroque and Rococo Architecture October 27, 2010

The Baroque Architecture can be described as extravagant or bongga (“filipino term for extravagant”) designs. And it is known for its styles using complicated shapes, twisted columns ,illusion paintings, curvilinear forms and broken pediments.
At this period the Council of Trent is considered to be one of the Church’s most important councils. It was introduced by a religious order known as Jesuits. It started late 16th century to early 18th century in Europe. Baroque Architecture was originated in Italy.
What I like in Baroque ….
Is the twisted column or also called “Solomonic column” , the spiral look and glided details, of the Roman’s and Greek’s columns. The twisted columns portrays a graceful movements.

At the completion of St. Peter’s Basilica , the baldacchino, a pavilion-like structure 30 meters (98 ft) tall and claimed to be the largest piece of bronze in the world, which stands beneath the dome and above the altar. Most baroque churches have their own baldachino. This is one of my favorite in this era the baldachino.

And my most favorite in this era is the ceiling paintings, that creates illusions. The example of it is the ceiling of- Il Gesù .

The painting style that is used is called Chiaroscuro, the strong contrast of light and dark to pop-up the image. What I like to the Baroque artists  is they can create a wonderful illusion of real life paintings. And I can really say that Baroque Architects were able to think out of the box.

And also one of the major features of Baroque is the broken pediments, that we can usually found at the entrance of a church.

Rococo Architecture

RO– stones COCO– shell
The Rococo architecture is more in its interior. I like how I can easily distinguished or recognized the Rococo period through their name means.
It started late Baroque which represent a high baroque

Excessive ornamentation.
And also this is the start of landscaping , decorative gates and Grottos .
The Rococo, is more on excessive ornamentation rather that architectural structure.

The Baroque and Rococo Architecture helped me to realized the evolution of the styles and ideas over the decades. I believed that it is  the most artistic period in the History of Architecture.


This is my course.. September 30, 2010

YES! I’ am sure that am in the right course. This is one step to my dream to become a successful Architect in the future. I will give my best in every challenge that I will face in this course.
But before I chose this course, to be honest when I was in High School I didn’t imagine that I will be an Architect in the future or taking an Architecture course is just that I never notice my inner talents in designing and in drawing. I only realize that I want to be an architect when I was in 3rd yr HS. When I saw a beautiful structures in Dubai and Singapore. It was so amazing and beautiful. And I ask my self do I have this kind of talent that can amaze others and can make a beautiful structure? And I said yes! This is what I want to do in the future, this is what I want and what I love. And then I decided that in college I will take B.S. Architecture even my parents warned me that its not easy as I thought. It was hard and I need to be serious about it. But I already decided that I want to be an architect and I’m ready to any challenges that I will face, how hard it was I’m ready. This is what I love and in my heart I love what I’m doing right now.
I agree that Architecture is a language. Because of what we are constructing. I believe  that every structure that we do it has a purpose and message to the people. We didn’t do a structure that has no meaning or  purpose. Architects make an art in their structures. It can inspire and encourage others.
Color Rendering is one of the subjects that I’m looking forward. I like to mix and match colors. But the only concerns me is that I don’t know how to use different materials in paintings. Like I don’t have enough knowledge in materials what we will use and I don’t have enough knowledge when it comes to using watercolor, poster paint and acrylic color. I want to learn in this subject is the proper techniques in using those materials , proper handling of the brush and proper posture while painting. I really love to learn more about colors. Because without colors I really don’t know what will happened to me.  I love colors. I hope at the end of this term I can make a beautiful pictures that can inspire by others and appreciate my work. I’m looking forward to this term in Color Rendering.
