Reflection on the Process
At the moment, I am working on my dissertation that is going to be part of my final BA project. The purpose of this post is to reflect back on the process and the methods used to help frame and led to the essay title, there would be a few more posts coming following the writing process. I would admit, it was not an easy part for me. The field of architecture and design is extensive, you could find a topic and write about anything. But, would that interest you and link to own practice? The essay should have a strong link with my personal work and interests and be beneficial in the long run, not only for the time being. In order to set the potential themes, I reflect back on my previous work and interests and what could be useful in a future career. Giving a good thought and research on myself, I come up with a few themes all addressing modular construction and sustainability. I had a few more ideas in mind regarding technology and history but I was mostly drawn to modular construction, I guess the reason is that I already have some knowledge and experience in that particular topic that could be deepened. I have shared my ideas with my peers and tutor which helped in narrowing down to one topic. The peer’s thoughts and opinions were helpful, but the tutor’s feedback was the most influential. The influence of the tutor was the one to help narrow down to one specific topic. At this stage now, I have selected the topic, have set the essay questions what is left is to set the essay title and dive into the writing.
