1) We learnt how to use google sketch up, how to design the interior and exterior of the building. we also learnt how to appreciate architecture design.
2)Google sketch up keep lagging and it was very hard to move object with a trackpad. the journal also took up a lot of time and it was hard to finish it on time.
3) i seek technical help from peers and also borrow a mouse from my father. i plan up a schedule to help me keep track of time
4)i should have started my work earlier and do more research on my building. i should also not leave to digital presentation board to last minute.

What makes a architecture

It was stated that a building should meet obligations of commodity (utilitas), firmness (firmitas), and delight (venustas). Commodity addresses how a building serves its function and can be made more useful to the occupants. Firmness means endurance, or a building's ability to stand up to natural forces over time. Delight refers to aesthetics.
