Meeting day!

Hello, I'm Keming and you can also call me Komin! I come form Guangdong province which is located in the southern China.

Actully it is not the first meeting for us but we attach particular importance to this meeting because it is the first time that we have all the people here with our collaborator Chris.

Our project is Kingdom life church. It is located in the Old trafford. We have made two times site visit before and have investigated the current site conditions and scale as well as the internal structre of the church and youth centre.

We felt very motivated because at this meeting we explored a lot of what we were going to do afterwards and how we needed to do it. Now we’ve come up with a plan, and we’ll get down to producing the work. Everyone got their own tasks. I will add blog posts each week about the work we’ve done.

My name is Agnese and I am 22 years old. I am an M.Arch-1 student in Continuity Atelier. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree at Politecnico di Milano, where I am currently pursuing a Master's in Architecture and Interiors. I will be part of MSA this semester as an exchange student and I could be not more excited.

Besides architecture, I have different passions including life in outer space, aviation and sports. I am so enthusiastic about space exploration that one of my goals for this life is to spend at least one day on the red planet!

During my academic and professional experience, I have developed various skills. Of these, the ones I am most passionate about are 3D digital modelling (mainly with Rhino), the use of rendering software (such as V-Ray) and the creation of physical models (plaster and plexiglass are my preferred materials).

Meeting after the break!

Hi, It is nice to see you again. There is a blog about our work during the Easter holidays, I'm Keming. We are going to discuss what we should do and prepare before we meet our collaborator, Chris.

As discussed yesterday, we planned to design a flat with three types of rooms. And we also need to prepare the schedule of accomodation.

We can't wait to share our plans with Chris!

I'm happy to show our work! Come on MSA!
