  • Spring Break or Work which ever it is

    Things couldn't be better...studio project redo, deadline on thursday for work, and the computer crashed TWICE. Goodness I thought I was suppose to be on Spring Break. I decide to relax my first two days and head to Richmond for the CAA tournament. One of my studio buddies had four free tickets...


  • A much needed break

    This past week has been hell. I'm sure everybody feels the same way with deadline after deadline. Studio Culture has increased dramatically in the past weeks and people seem to be more upbeat even with mounting pressure on their shoulders. Instead of telling you what happened I would like to show...


  • Sink in

    I just realized today that I haven’t worked on a project by myself since our first studio project in the fall. The Professors were discussing what our groups should be producing on Friday and it dawned on me that I was in a group once again. It’s not that I don’t like working it...


  • Get your roll on

    Our studio class on Friday was interesting. We are to design a live work unit in the city of Pheobus, VA and it has to be Handicap accessible. Instead of describing what we needed to do they showed us what it's like to be in a wheel chair. The presentation woke me up from my daydreaming of...


  • Forgetful

    I have noticed that when work piles up I become forgetful. For example I have lost my camera twice this week. Luckily I have some great studio mates that find it and place it back on my desk. I have walked out of the house with no shoes, rode all the way home realizing that I have been sitting in...


  • Disney Studio

    Here are some images of our Disney studio project. Here is a birds view Here is the land bridge Rear view Rear view 2 Approach East view


  • Long week

    Studio hs been kickin like kung-fu lately. The professors gave us our project and left it open for our own interpretation. It was a great experience not to have to work under any constraints but I do realize that you need them at times to give direction to a project. We were to analyze the small...


  • Staying awake

    I have been averaging three hours of sleep this past week. the work load has began to pile up. I'm tryin to work at it systematically and knock one asignment out at a time. So far so good but I miss my pillow. We also took a tour of Pheobus in 30 degree weather with the wind blowing at full blast...


  • Weekend Adventure

    Go Colts. Not that I'm fan but Payton Manning has some funny commercials. Too bad I found out through sportscenter. Archtitecture takes precedent. We got a preview of what we will be doing on Monday so I went and checked out the site. It was pretty busy for being such a small town. More people...


  • Studio culture

    I had to let this topic soak into my brain before I decide to blog my thoughts about it. I could'nt stay for the whole discussion because I had a pyhsics test. I said some things that sounded arrogant but was not my intention to. I wasonly stating what I saw. I 'am no where near the designer I...


  • woo hoo

    I'am dead tired but this cheered me up. One of my buddies emailed me this. I don't know if you guys have seen it before but it took my mind off of studio for a minute. So I have been working on my portofolio since school started and I think I finally have a grasp on it. One of our professors...


  • just one of them architecture days

    I found out today that when you finish something the night before one should print it out right away. Well........ because your printer might decide to go hay wire on you an hour before pinups. Oh yeah!!! So I was talking to one of my best buddies in studio today. I like her process of thinking...


  • Designing a meal

    First you got to sautee those onions....... Then the secret ingredient............. add beef for protein.......... add water to thin up the sauce......... add broccoli for the carbs......... simmer........ Now for the presentation. See how the hot cocoa and rice are proportioned with the beef and...


  • breather

    This competion drained my brain. I was traveling and researching most of the weekend and I finally started drawing my board on Sunday. I was thinking about going digital for the speed but I had to keep my promise not to use the computer unless it was necessary. I'm thinking about changing my...


  • aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    This competition is insane!!!!!!


  • Va Prize

    It's been a long two days....I mean long. Day one. I got my physics test back and I was quite pleased with the grade. I saw this in my physics class and thought that it was random.... I walked back to Bemis to take a nap becasue I was completely exhausted from last nights work. I thought you guys...


  • walking around campus

    wlaking and taking pictures My ofice startted making paper airplanes. I love this one.


  • studio days

    My group and i started working on our disney competion entry. Here are some of our ideas. This was mine. It has an alien invasion story that I will elaborate on later. I goofed around for awhile before I jumped to my studio project. Which is almost done and then its off to physics. yeaaaah...


  • empty studio

    Yes it is......!? Well It was myself and darrly/brandon in studio working on our project. I dont know why he has two names but to not confuse myself I use both. We were feeding off each others idea and it helped me get out of the brian fart I was in. We were having our own little poetry night. It...


  • Friday

    I started of the day feeling extremely energized even with three hours of sleep. It helped with the 80 mile walk we have from "Africa" (the designated parking spot for architecture students). It had to be as far as possible from the building so we can build our arms up to carry these giant models...


  • minimal

    I have been sketching this logo every chance that I got and found that I was thinking way to much into it. All this sketching for a logo but it has got me hooked.


  • first day of studio

    We started off smaller than fall semester. I guess this is around the time where people start to realize if they want to do architecture. I hate to see some of the people go but to each his own. Our first project is to come up with a logo to attach to our portfolios that we will be completing this...


  • yeaeahahah the first day.

    Not a great day for me though. It was good to see the usual tired faces with well rested smiles. It has been a crazy day with schedule conflicts which forced me to change a couple of courses around. Not a smooth transition but gotta stay optimistic....it is only the first day. now off to...


  • oops


  • finally got some pics of my final project

    Took a while but it is the holidayshttp://farm1.static.flickr.com/163/349954377_444dbc9596_o.jpg


  • Just when you thought crits were over

    I got away from architecture for a couple of days and now have the time to reflect back on this semester. Well bewfore I get into that I was volunteering at the local salvation army this holiday season and who do I run into? None other than one of the professors at Hampton. I wasn't expecting a...


  • there is no I in studio

    The final lap is approaching and my lungs are grasping for every ounce of air. Its hard to believe the semester is over but I guess thats what happens when you have know concept of time. We have been set of to do our own individual work after our grueling group work. Working with three other...


  • AAAAAAHHHHH. BUT I STILL COME BACK

    THE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS HAVE BEEN HELL. WE HAVE HAD SOMETHING DUE IN STUDIO AT EVERY MEETING AND IF NOT STUDIO ANOTHER CLASS. AS I GET READY TO PULL MY HAIR OUT, I THINK TO MYSELF THAT "I LOVE THIS!" HOW CAN A HUMAN BEING JUGGLE SO MANY THINGS AND YET STILL LOVE WHAT THEY ARE DOING? I GUESS THAT...


  • First trip of the fall

    I plan on attending the lecture at UMD this friday. Karla Maria Rothstein from SR+T Architects, Columbia University is speaking. I thought this might be a good way to get away and expand my architectural knowledge. It also happens to be the open house for their grad program that day as well. I...


  • So what do you guys think?

    There ia a local sketch competition here in Hamton Roads. YOu can use any media but since my camera is broken I thought I would do it the old fashioned way. The fifteen winners works will be used as postcards to help promote architecture in our area. Hopefully at least one of these will make it...
