    It's that last lap and it couldn't be anymore of a relief. That last hurdle grows taller or shorter depending on the energy boost I will get in these next couple of weeks. We have been sketching our ideas and Phoebus in the past week so here are some excerpts from my sketchbook.

      good luck!

      12 days to complete it? that doesn't sound too bad. we're usually only given a week for that same workload, and it's hell. i hope everything goes well.

      good luck on the portfolio and such, too!

      Phoebus project sounds like fun, it has some distinct typologies. One of your sketches looks like Fort Monroe, perhaps a source of inspiration there?

      Good luck.

      The Westin is insane and will take some getting used to but growth is inevitable. At least the city is trying to contain it.

      this might give you another view of urbanism...
      "Tearing Down the Streets: Adventures in Urban Anarchy" by Jeff Ferrell.

      an architect with an alternative view of what architectural forms like "new urbanism" and the "redeveloped warehouse districts" have done to real urban life.
