School of Athens, centered around philosophers Aristotle and Plato is the epiphany of a classic roman school. Centralizing ideals of theory, synthesizing pure science; outreaching to all fields in between, analyzing this painting opened a new world of education for me.
The many parts that create this whole image of learning, runs parallel with the theory of our 4th year-studio. As an interactive unit, we have begun to familiarize, rejuvenate, adapt, and explore all that this "new" studio can offer. Growing as individuals and designers, strengths are apparent as are weaknesses of the pieces to this puzzle. The beauty of the knowing is that we can then turn and utilize these strengths...and weaknesses in a way that will create a true dynamic experience and collection of work.
