Program: Atelier 1year Course
Period: Sept 07,2015-Apr.22,2016

After received a business degree in Supply Chain Management in US, I went back to Taiwan working as a buyer for 5 years. But then realized that my true passion lay with Interior Design. Therefore, I chose Accademia Riaci to be the school, which I believed it would help me to establish the fundamental design concept and aesthetic views in Interior Design.
我在美國拿到供應鏈管理的學士學位後回台灣擔任採購的職位五年. 但是在後面的兩年我深刻地感受到採購不是我想要的職業而是室內設計. 所以我選擇了Accademia Riaci來學習設計的理念和美感的培養,我相信在就學的這段時間,我可以從這間學校學到很多的東西.

Interior Design 2-Atelier One-Year 2015

As I continued to work on my bookshelf and after confirmed with professor for the final design shape from last week, this week I start to build them use Sketchup; so I can see a better view in 3D

The first bookshelf on the left was the first 3D model I built; however, professor told me it didn’t look like what I originally drew as the thickness of the original horizontal bookshelf was much thicker than the circle shelf, which in my original sketch, they looked like they have the same thickness. So, on the right, is my 2nd 3D model, which has been modified to look more like my original design sketch.

左邊的書櫃是第一個3D模型;但是教授認為平行的書櫃部分太過於厚且跟我當初的設計稿看起來落差很大. 所以右手邊的書櫃是經過修改後的第二個模型. 就跟我當初設計看起來是一樣的

Now the bookshelf on the right is the 3rd design modification compared with the 2nd design modification on the left. Two changes were made to the 3rd design; first, the gaps between horizontal shelf and the circle shelf were shorten from 10cm to 5cm, and second, the circle shelfs were indented for 5cm, which was no longer align with the horizontal shelf. Those changes were made to try out different looks of the bookshelf.

右手邊的書櫃是第三個設計模型; 跟第二個模型來做比較,第三個設計模型有兩個主要的變化;第一,平行書櫃和圓形書櫃中間的間隔從10公分減少到5公分;第二,圓形書櫃的厚度減少了5公分,就是圓形書櫃的厚度跟平行書櫃比起來較淺; 這些不同的設計是在嘗試不同的樣子跟整體感覺

This photo has the 4th design modification on the right. The circle was open.

右手邊的書櫃是第四個模型設計; 這個設計的圓圈部分是打開的
