1. As you may know, I’m in the process of writing my thesis dissertation about the Open Source Architecture. In order to complement my research paper I have put together a Wiki web page, which is titled Wiki Architecture. It is grounds to an experiment in collaborative design ultimately geared towards generating a new concept for the USA’s White House.

    However, this rant is really about the painting workshop I’m took, called Architecture through Painting. For the three months, I was be working on a 6×6 foot painting, which, as I decided, was to be a reconstructed vision of the Open Source White House. Of course, since my instructor was Tom Dubicanac, I had to include a nude somewhere in the composition, which made it extra challenging.

    So, in the end the painting took 34 painting sessions, about 4 to 14 hours each, totaling in about 270 hours of work (Yes, I know I’m slow), and $500 worth of supplies. The professor, however, was eager and satisfied and I am happy to have found myself a new hobbies and passion. I hope to paint more, and maybe try out some other techniques.

    I hope you like it. It is called Intertext. Creative criticism is very welcome!

  4. This video is was made in an open source architectural environment at http://arch1k.wikidot.com

    It is a collaboration project that explores ways in which architectural design can be influenced by the open source development model.
    We are to design in collaboration an alternate building to replace the current White House in the Washington D.C.
    Most importantly. the project in an Open Source free-for-all where everyone is welcome to collaborate, borrow ideas, and contribute to the project regardless of their occupation and abilities.
