On a rainy Wednesday February morning my architecture class took a 20 minute bus ride into Boston to get a first hand look of what an architecture firm looks like. Ms. Chang's previous architecture student, Daniel Ricardelli, works at Bergmeyer Associates. Daniel, accompanied by a couple of his colleagues, took us on a quick tour of the firm. They mentioned that they designed their firm and to cut costs managed to create a space that utilizes light from windows and glass doors to use less artificial light. Not only did they create their own space ingenuously, but also work for many other companies to design and construct spaces and building efficiently and effectively. Once we finished the tour Mary Fichtner, a program and exhibits manage, gave us many tips for college ad future jobs not only specific to architecture and design, but careers in general. She showed us the dos and don'ts of resumes and applications. Once we finished at the Bergmeyer Associates firm, we took a quick walk across a bridge to the BSA Space. This space can be rented out for different exhibits and shows for any topic you can think of. After that tour we stopped to eat lunch, which I decided to eat Boloco with Paul and Alex. Personally, I recommend you eat at this Chipotle-esque restaurant that has amazing burritos. Overall this field trip was extremely informative and gave me a better idea of how architecture firms are, and overall what work is like outside of school.

    This is an architecture blog I created for my Intro to Architecture course I take at Burlington High School. Here you will find various links and websites that I review, critiquing the many ideas and designs other artists have created. You will also find work that I have created and photographed myself.
