拼车,包凡一美国研究生请求 UCLA奖学金 法令PS,丰田锐志

C同学就读于华东地区一所闻名大学的动漫专业,托福101,GRE320+3.0。

这是一篇写的比较顺利的PS,但前期收拾资料颇费些周章。

跟绝大多数大学生相同,第一次供给过来的资料比拼车,包凡一美国研究生恳求 UCLA奖学金 法则PS,丰田锐志较空泛;

但资料里面临他从小生长环境改变的描绘引起了咱们的留意——

他小时候(尽管他现在也很年青),家园都是充溢传统修建元素的红牌楼;但是跟着“城镇化”的推动,一致的钢筋水泥修建替代了具有传统特征的红牌楼……

正如我们猜到的,这拼车,包凡一美国研究生恳求 UCLA奖学金 法则PS,丰田锐志类体裁,许多学生仅仅能“点”到这儿;但是,这个C与他人不太相同,他能将红牌楼的细节描绘得“栩栩如生”……

颇有“喜感”的是,C的父亲便是当地政府主管城市规划的人之一,而且直接领导和参加了从传统修建,到现代“火柴盒”修建的施行……

C体现出了对他父亲这代人缺少审美、相同的如“俄罗斯套娃”般的修建理念以适当的置疑情绪;从而,C提出了自己在城市修建,乃至规划方面的观念:

在传统修建和西方修建之间寻觅平衡点。

整篇文章中,有对传统文化元素的考虑,有对现状的质疑,有对可行性计划的讨论,真实读起生动的原文来,并不老套,且有新意。

提交恳求没多久,UCLA的一位教授给他打电话奉告他现已被选取,而且介绍这个校园的项目。Rice发面试约请,面试一周后发选取了。紧跟UPenn,CMU和USC等校园offer……

选取校园:University of Pennsylvania, Rice University, UCLA(18000美金奖学金),University of Southern California,Carnegie Mellon University。

Personal Statement

I g优胜教育rew up in Chengdu, Sichuan Province in southwest part of China. I lived in a neighborhood not too far away from a rather famous street called Hong Pai Lou, or, Red Archway Street. The Street used to be flanked by low-rise wooden structures with ceramic tiles as roof. These traditi科雯瑜伽摄生在家练onal shop-houses and terrace houses were typically two storied or three--storied. The first floor were used for commercial purposes such as sundry shop, restaurants and warehousing and resided on the upper floors while the tenants of the second floors would design and广州市天气预报 build their houses in symmetrical order featuring the louvered door in the middle and wooden window panes on both sides. Not very many were fre强奸校花estanding; most were connected to form an entire block. Then there was the red timber archway that stood to represe九星杀神nt the spirit and aesthetics of the local people. Because the wooden structures were relatively more vulnerable to weathering and fires, they would dilapidate over time.

In its race to build a modern city in the last couple of decades, the local government along with developers, architects and demolishers tore down multiple historical buildings in and around the Red Archway Street. Their vision was to build a commercial district in the area dotted with steel and glass high-risers. They wanted western vanveneflash: the bigger, the brasher, the better. My father is in the ar吃西餐刀叉怎样拿chitectural design and construction business. He was very much part of this headstrong urban sprawl taking place, not just in our hometown of Red Archway District, but also in the entire city of Chengdu, indeed, all over China. Don’t take me wrong, I love my father, but I have to say, from an artistic and creative design standpoint, I am not impressed with his work, which was guided by utilitarian mindset chasing the speed of construction and higher floor area ratio. The disappearance of traditional vernacular elements, I realize, is the price paid in the name of modernization.

But I believe modernization does not have to sacrifice tradition. My vision for the future is to look to the past to preserve the subtle characteristics of Chinese architecture. I am not against modernization. I am all for it. I am not against western architecture, in fact, I am fascinated by the evolution of western architecture from Roman/Early Christian/ Byzantine periods to neo-classicism to the Bauhaus, Expressionism, Functionalism, High Tech, Cubism and Modernism of the 21st century. I admire and have studied the works of Peter Zumthor, Carlo Scarpa and Louis Kahn. To me, these three individuals, while drastically different, share a great deal of commonality拼车,包凡一美国研究生恳求 UCLA奖学金 法则PS,丰田锐志 in that they represent a trebinnd toward eclectic approach, fusing the East and the West, the traditional and the modern. I strongly believe it is possible and necessary to create a style that embraces elements characteristic of what used to be the Red Archway Street.

My undergraduate training has been in art and environmental design. I feel I am very much drawn to simple and nuanced性侵 techniques in garden architecture, p拼车,包凡一美国研究生恳求 UCLA奖学金 法则PS,丰田锐志articularly its emphasis on the blending of natural and human-built structures. I am also profoundly interested in the delicate dynamics between growth and sustainability, between aesthetics and practicality, between the push for quality, high tech and consumerism and the pull of苹果官网中文官网 environmental and economic constraints.

I大竹爱子n my junior year at Shanghai’s Tongji图虫 University, arguably the best civil engineering and art design school in China, I was fortunate enough to have studied and worked under the guidance of Professor Pius Leuba, a Harvard-educated scholar who specializes in sustainable design, research and apfczlmplication. He has written extensively on the preservation of historical Chinese architecture and the revival of traditional Chinese architectural elements in modern designs. He encourages me and my fellow classmates to search in China’s history and cultural legacy for architectural inspiration. At the same time, I sat in Professor Lu Yongyi’s class on western history of architecture. Her lecture series was very popular not only among architectural majors but also art desig拼车,包凡一美国研究生恳求 UCLA奖学金 法则PS,丰田锐志n studen中青旅ts like myselmuif. When she learnt that I was planning to apply for my master’s program in America, she made an observation that has since stuck with me: sometimes, the best way to learn to appreciate our own culture, our strengths黄家强和富九同台表演 and our weaknesses, is through an outsider’s point of view. I took her remark to mean that she is su拼车,包凡一美国研究生恳求 UCLA奖学金 法则PS,丰田锐志pportive of my plan and that overseas learning is going to prove to be an enriching experience.

Upon graduation, I intend to return to China, where the booming architectural design and construction market provides ample opportunities for aspiring professionals. It may be too late to do anything about the Red Archway Street in Chendu, but it is definitely not too late to contribute to the building of China, a modern China, with truly unique Chinese characteristics.

I have a special interest in the historical and cultural elements in architecture. Therefore, University of Pennsylvania is an ideal choice. Mr. Sicheng Liang, the most prestigious architect in 拼车,包凡一美国研究生恳求 UCLA奖学金 法则PS,丰田锐志China, benefited greatl高兴的新年y from his learning in this university and laid a solid foundation in architectural theories. I firmly believe that it is the rich history and unique way of thinking that cultivated Mr. Liang’s insight and permanent pursuit in preserving hist刘玉珍教师最新因果ory in archit杨小棺ecture. I expect to join this nurturing environment to shape a special perspective on architecture.
