First let me say I loved FA350: An Introduction to Architecture: Theory & Practice at UVic. I took it this July (2011) in condensed format… Monday to Friday, 4:30-6:30, for 3 weeks + 2 days… it was awesome!
The first assignment? On a 8.5 * 11 piece of paper design a graphic to represent and introduce yourself to your classmates, and explain why you are interested in Architecture.
Being process minded and cognisant that personality is at least partially an emergent characteristic I designed this.
