Re-Envisioning South Willamette

Re-Envisioning South Willamette

In the Spring Term, my studio was about redesigning (or re-envisioning, if you will) South Willamette Street here in Eugene. The city is already involved in this process as they gear up for their next 30-year plan (an Oregon state requirement) and a possible expansion of the Urban Growth Boundary. South Willamette Street, despite having […]


The Best Model Shot

The Best Model Shot

It’s Spring Break! Thank God! I’ve been working to update my portfolio so I can start the hunt for a summer job. So I’ve been going through a bunch of photos of models I took over the last two terms, thinking about including them. This is, by far, my favorite: a close-up of the laser […]


Assignment 5 – Final Facade / Perspective Rendering

Assignment 5 - Final Facade / Perspective Rendering

Spring Term is finally OVER! This was the term that just would not end – or, if you prefer, the term that just kept on giving. I have two weeks of vacation over which, of course, I will be working, picking up the shattered pieces of my life. Anyhow, above you will find a scanned […]


Facades

Facades

For your viewing pleasure, two facade studies from my current studio project. Not sure what the final thing will actually look like – probably something in between these two. These are hand-drawn, not digital, just so you know. Click through to embiggen if the mood strikes.

Assignment 4 - Plan & Section

Here’s a (hastily digitized) plan of the Third Floor of this term’s studio project as of the last midterm. A section is below the fold. To see them in their full 1/8″ scale glory, click on either image. Be forewarned: they’re big.


Assignment 3 – Diagrams

Assignment 3 - Diagrams

I wish I had something interesting to say about diagrams. But I don’t. Not really. They’re one of many ways to organize thoughts and are damn important to any architectural presentation. After all, no one reads the words accompanying the images. Well, at least no one in architecture does. Have you ever read an architecture […]

Assignment 2 – SketchUp Site Model

Assignment 2 for Digital Media is to create a site model in SketchUp. This site, at NW 8th Ave. and Couch St. in Portland, is where we will be designing our studio project.


ARCH 610: Digital Media

ARCH 610: Digital Media

I’m going to start doing something a little differently here, at least until March. Right now I’m taking a class called Intro to Digital Media. As part of the class, we need to create a web journal to post our assignments. I figure, why create an entirely new site when I’ve got a perfectly good […]


Portland!

Portland!

Just two from our class field trip to Portland last week. It’s a really cool town. Glad I finally had a chance to visit.


A Couple of Holidays

A Couple of Holidays

It’s been a while since I put up a real post. So I’m going to do that now, right before I start vacation and you don’t hear from me again until January. Let’s make this one about holidays, and we’ll start with Thanksgiving…


Back. For Good This Time.

Back. For Good This Time.

Hello again! It has been quite a while since I last was able to post, but this time I am writing directly from the comfort of my apartment. We were finally able to get internet at home a few weeks ago. We had some trouble getting the Telefonica guy to show up – he kept […]


In the Meantime, Los Angeles

In the Meantime, Los Angeles

The countdown stands at 5 days. I fly out Friday morning. It’s only now slowly sinking in. Kind of crazy.
