2.2:water colour(2),architectural construction(1),basic theory of architectural design(2),deisgn studio(4),structural mechanics.
For fall:practice water colour painting,practice architectural surveying and architectural rendaring and sketch.

:) mrs. ahsan is still shouting in Chinise in campus!!!

However, It's really very nice to get the information about the course outline in Tsinghua University.
One think amazed me in your syllabus. That is the rendering technics in hand, like special focus o pencil sketch, water color etc. I personnaly appreciate this attitude very much.
Here people often start to believe that good architecture without knowing how to sketch is possible (as computer is there). But I say it's not possible, the connection from brain to hand to pencil has some special power of creating better architecture which is impossible to achieve just by the computer.
But why to spend this much credits in Algebra?!

In our school teachers think that itz very important to do your designs in hand. They don't want us to entirely depend on the technology. And for the math stuffs, itz also the school.. they want us to gain more knogledge on this part. In the beginning they just asked me whether i could do the sketches... if i cann't then i cann't get to get in the school... they really demand the skills in hand rather in tech.
