Howdy,

My name is Zachary Wilson. Currently, I'm an Architecture Graduate student at Hochschule Anhalt (FH) Dessau International Architecture in Dessau, Germany from Houston, Texas, United States.

Architecture is my life, and through my deviations you might get the sense of that! Whether its through school, my own personal explorations, sketching, 3D modeling, and yes even Minecraft, my aim is to explore architecture through a variety of media in order in enhance my understanding of the built environment as well as architecture's visual aesthetic.

Some of my continuing goals in life are to graduate with a Master's Degree in Architecture, Travel the world seeking the best architecture has to offer, work for a big name international architecture firm, and design high-rise buildings and any buildings which will impact the nature of cities and other urban settings.

Thinking about ditching Deviantart. Architecture is such a small community on here anyway and only seems to get a response if its either minecraft (which i don't play anymore) or some kind of crazy model or scifi conceptual art. Groups seem dead and when most groups only let you submit 1 photo or anything every 7 days that really puts a barrier up in my opinion. Maybe I'm wrong, but as a casual poster and user of Deviantart there just doesn't seem to be anything for me here. Might only come on here to see cool art and thats about it. Not final or anything, but its pretty close.
Half Remembered Dream - Layout 2
This was my submission into a competition called 120hours, a competition where you are given 120 hours to respond to a given prompt that is given the day of the start of the competition.

The prompt:

- - A House Without Function - -

~Background~

In the present time the architectural discourse has been shifted to a purely political and programmatic agend. You are requested to take an antithectical position in order to think about architecture in its most essential and fundamental values.

The current tendency implies a hierarchical order that doesn't consider composition and tectonics until the end of the development of a project.

The aim is to revert the normal sequence of the design process. Architectural choices will define a project based on pure spatial qualities rather than economic or programmatic organisation.

~Task~

You are requested to design a house. The house will be a place suitable for human scale. A primary space that is conceived through your own intimate, personal and critical vision of architecture.

Is it then possible to imagine architecture without site and program? If so how can they complement initial spatial qualities? In the final moment you should investigate these questions and reflect upon them.

~Minimum Requirements~

1 Section
1 Plan
1 View/Rendering/Illustration/Collage
A reflection of max 150 words about the project

This was a very interesting competition. Very vague and difficult prompt to grasp. Lots of hard work went into this, but I would more than anything like any critiques or pointers anyone might have of my submission! I will be further developing this a little bit before putting it into a portfolio and would appreciate any input :)
