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.

A little over a month ago I mentioned that I was in architecture school… I told you it was going to be busy! First, the good news: I got my kit lens back in fully working order. Hurrah! As much as I love my nifty fifty, it’s nice to not be limited to the one [...]
