geometries found in trajan's forum
this week in in my geometries in architecture class, my partner and i were assinged a project, where we took plans and sections from trajan's forum and tried to find geometries within them. with the few sacred geometries we've learned in class, we set out to see what we could find, looking to see if anything in the plans or sections matched up. in the picture above we've found what we think is the plan based on the sacred cuts. it's not perfect but close. what i found the most interesting however was the process, and how close this assingment parallels my life. you have something presented to you, it's lying in front of you, and you're confused and you can't make sense of it. it might be overwhelming at first. but with a little patience you start to see things. things you can't ignore. you start to see things that line up. you apply what you've learned in the past, lay it over the new problem and things start to come clear. before you know it you've found the answer. now, it might not be perfect but it's close enough to see that it's right. I've felt this many times in my life. i've been confused, and i needed something to unlock it and become clear, sometimes it's patience, hard work, discussion, time, or prayer. in my life, i've learned that everything always works out, somehow......
