  • Confessions Part Two: Theory, theory, and more theory

    Since day one, my thesis critic has been trying to get me to incorporate my own philisophical/architectural theory interests with this project. For whatever reason, I was hesitant and struggled with synthesizing an interesting design. What resulted was a "regular" building, one that would most...


  • confessions of an architecture student: part one

    So i seem to have gotten myself into a bind as the shape my building is taking reflects my DIAGRAMATIC block mass model (see previous entry pictures)! Maybe this was because this was the easier way to go, or I just didnt see it... Actually, I think that its a different approach that I am taking...


  • Why are critics sketches always better than the students?

    I chatted with our visiting critic, Alexander Schmidt about my master plan for my site and he had some really good points about how one approaches a building and how one approaches an urban plan. Rather than arbitrarily placing functions/designated spaces around a site (sort of like a one plus one...


  • Urban Planning/Volumetric Massing

Or, should the building stand as its own entity in the urban context...


  • Charette underway...

    A couple of days into the charette and already, programmatic relationships have begun to take form subsequently informing interior spaces. The information given by the pathway diagram showed the potential overlapping of events within selected spaces. Since the theme is "inside-out" for this...


  • First Day...

    First day of studio. We began charetting and already, Jim has had enough. We're starting out by designing our proposals from the "inside out" visions, perspectives, models etc. to begin to shape the experience of the interior space.


  • the day before the first day...

    So, im about to begin my thesis studio tommorrow which might be different than most architecture schools. We are on the quarter system (summer, fall, winter & spring), so essentially our winter and spring terms put together are a little longer than most schools spring semester. And yes, that...
