Maybe God did destined us not to get closer
I think He only wants us to meet each other
Maybe because He knows that there can be something
A friendly relationship that is worth learning
The night I danced with you was different
I think it was one thing He has intend
The time you held my hand has caught me lost
It was the chill inside that wrapped me most
Though it was long ago since I was thrilled
Yet the idea of you kept me stilled
Your presence is my simple happiness
Just by seeing you my day comes no stress
I’m not asking you to take me out for dinner
Neither asking you to take care of my fever
Because holding you here might be so much
What I only want is for you to keep in touch
Just one smile and I am all good
but ignoring me would seem too rude
I know I’m just another friend to you
but I cannot take you if you argue
You don’t feel the same way I feel
I know cause actions do reveal
But don’t worry I will be fine
Cause God has whispered you won’t be mine.
It’s been a while since I met this very substantial guy who gradually changed my perspectives in life, and he doesn’t know it. The first time I saw him was an exceptional day for me. Randomly, I was so happy and I couldn’t get the smile off my face. It was one sunny afternoon and I was having a walk in the cloud going back to my dorm. I logged my time-in in the guard house and over a stranger I turned a brilliant visage on him(with the lightest smile). Months after months, I happened to know the stranger more and I started discovering a lot of possibilities for the things which I thought are unreachable before him. I thought, I found the right guy, the one who’s ideal not just for me but in everything.
Unintentionally,my emotions slipped and I was bruised but I’m fine because I was able to recover from the bad fall.
So, after the light injury I had, I came up with one thought: Love might not be enough.
and I thought, maybe I have to be the right one first.
For me, he’s ideal and as time goes by, I’ve learn to value him. The character he possess is even more impressive than I thought but no matter how good it makes him, still the one kind of emotion is not enough. When I was younger, I used to think that all kinds of problems in the world can be answered only by the four-lettered word, yet now I guess I was wrong. Sometimes, only three letters can fit my solution kit and this solution never fails me though I failed the cure many times but his one is extremely powerful.
Like a usual child, I kept asking the Highness for the perfect one, the right one and the good one, yet I never did ask myself, “Am I the right one?”. So I came to take an act of setting apart for something more worth the distance. I want to be as good as I can be hoping that one day, I’ll be good enough for the person I look up to. Sometimes, out of nowhere, he sinks into the ocean of my mind and I’ll start writing a letter for him.
“I can’t get so close to you even if I wanted to. I never got the strength to be the kind of girl I wanna be when you’re around. I always look upon you every time a guy tries to walk with me yet in the middle of the road, I always find myself walking alone and longing that someday, I’ll end up walking with someone like you or better
be you. I am weakened by your presence and I’m stuck in my seat when you’re beside me. I don’t wanna go home without you but if you tell me I have, to I’ll do it for you.”
Such random words suddenly flies all over the place then I’ll see myself again reflected on the window shield of the car dreaming far of a dream that doesn’t give me the assurance of a sweet fruit of perspiration.
“It only takes him one smile and it’s enough for me to breathe, one touch and I can live, only one hug and he’ll keep me still, but one kiss would kill.”
I’m like a clock that keeps on running yet he has stunned my time. Now I lost my track but hoping he’ll bring me back.
Deconstruction and Transgression
With due respect to Bernard Tschumi who has written a manifesto entitled The Pleasure of Architecture, he mentioned there that this pleasure lies …where the culture of architecture is endlessly deconstructed and rules are transgressed. As a novice in the study of this field, I’ve witness the deconstruction of culture and the transgression of rules that has happened so many times in the history of architecture. Culture refers to the way of life in any society. The evolution of architecture from different periods and civilizations is an evidence of man’s desire of change, the desire of having more, and sometimes, the desire of new things. Because Man is never contented, he longed for improvements. He made ways to go away with the usual way of life, the transition from one period to another.
Architecture as we see these days are a bit far different from the ancient ones. From the discovery of bronze, wheel and writing in ancient Mesopotamia to the Egyptian pyramids and tombs, to the greek temples and sculptures of gods and godesses, to the Romans and the Medieval Period [Romanesque, Renaissance, Gothic, Baroque, Rococo] down to the Age of Enlightenment, Industrial Revolution, to the minimalists architecture that was given birth and made a total turn-back to Neoclassical architectural style and then to the present day style, Post-Modernism [Post-Functionalism]. The Crystal Palace by John Paxton has paved architecture to modernism. With the modernism’s use of glass and steel as its construction materials vs. the neoclassical’s concrete, architecture discovered a new way to build higher structures with lighter materials and stable and yet dynamic support.
Without man’s volition to improvements, Neoclassical architecture would have been our primary style until today. The Western’s thick walls, sturdy piers, arcades, or even the flying buttresses could have been a vast architecture in the present. Thanks to man’s initiative of deconstructing culture, our architecture has grown.
Like a child, architecture started on learning the culture and living under the silhouette of what is already there [under the shadows of classicism]. Adolescence then came and rebellious as he was, he wanted a total change, an independence from the old ways. He invented a new architectural style of a vast and wanton disregard of classical ornamentation and culture. As architecture continually grow, maturity was upon him. There were oppositions and arguments about modernism and the deliberation has led to Post-modernism, the synthesis of classicism vs. modernism. As an adult, he realized that eliminating ornamentation and wit has bored him and so he decided to bring them back. He saw the effects of his wrathful rebellion and though it worked at first yet after a while it gave him senseless beauty, too direct and honest, no sense of thrill.
Architecture is never contented. He never stops exploring and now, Post-functionalism notoriously pervades. The continuous deconstruction of the existing practice and culture results to the evolution of architecture. Rules exist to maintain peace and order but once transgressed, it can be opened for revision.
Architecture, a broad field of studies about building and designing structures to accommodate certain events as usually done in a certain space and to suit the users. The main concern of architecture is the user because it is where the design is based on. Some factors including the geographical aspects of the place where an archetype shall be built, the climate, the culture, religion and more influence the design result. Some results became an icon to their place, some are highly identified with the usage of technologies, and some are designed to comprehend with the other architecture in place.
During our second Theory of Design class, our professor have shown us three groups of images and he asked us to categorize them into an Iconic result of a design, or a Technologically designed structure or a Contextual architecture. The first group of images includes the Sydney Opera house, the Empire State Building, the Eiffel tower, and other known structures that can easily be recognized and has already built an identity in such field, these are Iconic results of design for they became something to look up to and some architects of today see these things as references for their designs. The second group of images shown were ubiquitously built because the materials they used can possibly be putted anywhere as it is widely accepted. The Pompidou Centre, HSBC Hong Kong Headquarters, Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in London are the images of some technologically built structures and this falls into the Technological Design Result category. The Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex, The New York City Grid, Tjibaou Cultural Center, and the Office Block in Westminster represent the last set of images. Such buildings gives you the sense of harmony, these seemingly structures are meant to comprehend with the other structures found in the place. A certain design gives the viewer or the people a story behind, a story to be told on how does that certain piece completes the puzzle.
Most of our buildings of today are variously designed in accordance with the Client’s desire and the architects creativity. Some buildings may come up as Iconic to the place, some came to belong and merge with its surrounding and some just cannot help but to explore more of the transparency and honesty with the usage of technologies. Yet, no matter what design result comes up, still it is the story behind it and the people’s point of view on how to critique a certain piece of art and science.
This design proposal for the DLS-CSB School of Design and Arts lobby is the final plate for the Architectural design principles course on the first term of school year 2010-2011.

I ALWAYS LIKE TO BE ON AN ELEVATED NATURAL PLACE CALLED HILLS WHERE I CAN SEE THE CITY WHILE FEELING THE COOL BREEZE OF AN AFTERNOON REMINISCENCE..
