  • The Ultimate Bureaucracy; Waiting for the laser-cutter..

    By eric

    There is a lot i can write about at this point. Its been a while, but the only thing on my mind right now is getting a FINAL model done. Thats right- final. Our design final is in a week from today- and the countdown is on. I've decided to get my model mostly done first (minus little detailing work) and then quickly move on to drawings (sectional axons, plans, perspectives) pictures to come. Hope everything materializes... I am quite excited for this critique- the process was the most fascinating part of this project and my aim with the final model is that it will directly reflect that.

    After a hefty contextual analysis of Sara D. Roosevelt Park, a handful of structural studies in the form of laminated chip-board models and a number of facade studies [many based on photos from last summer's trip to japan] I've tried to put my ideas on paper.

    So far in design ive been hand-drawing. Simply, solely and Only hand-drawing. After a crazy search for a Mayline which took me into manhattan and left me scrounging for all the accompanying parts in studio i successfully re-installed my parallel-rule. I never thought i would say that again, nor... View full entry

    Second year design at pratt is the end of the fully theoretical- fully process based projects and the beginning of more pointed and architectural classes (i.e. very exciting). In the next few postings i will detail and give my thoughts on a few of these classes starting, of course, with design. In... View full entry
