Apr '04 - Aug '07
I took a drive by my first real project. Of course I've done a lot of work for local contractors & developers, including working for Obelisk Architects and 2.5 books with Dr. Osamu Wakita. But this project is special to me. From start to permit, and now continuing to help resolve design issues, my ideas are being fully implemented -- sans a principal or project designer hanging over the project.
For sure, this is not cutting edge, but for sure, it is the nitty gritty that I will probably not get at school. I've worked for myself for the last 3-4 years holding my own as a local designer and taking on projects from architectural design & construction documents, to web design, to company branding/identities. For the most part, my involvement is now "brother-in-law mode" (unpaid), but I will continue to observe and help resolve issues with the design & contractor.
Here's a peak at the currents state of the project...
