Interior rendering of Turning Leafs new offices.
⇩ Thesis – Multi-dimensional elevation/section drawing.
This drawing examines the physical relationships of four families living together within a space. The drawing followed specific narratives of spaces. The drawing was then erased with a new drawing created on the same page. The marks of the old drawings exist within the layers of the new drawings.

Elevation drawing showing shadow and texture.
⇩ Studio library project – elevations.
Adding depth to an elevation drawing through shadow projection provides clues to depths and relationships of angles. It's not just a matter of getting the shadows correct, but examining what you've created and its relationship with other building components.

Plan view of a proposed library building.
⇩ Studio library project – plan.
Colliding 2 disparate geometries is always tricky in architecture. This studio project not only collides 2 geometries, but also 2 eras and building styles.

4 dimensional pencil drawing.
⇩ 4 Dimensional Drawing
Using image overlaps to examine a site provides a way into the space that isn't available on first glance. The overlapped images where then traced on a curved drawing table to emphasize depth, perspectives and points of view.

Pencil perspective drawing of a 1950s aircraft hangar
⇩ Cantilever Maintenance Hangar.
There is an elegance of older drawings that I find inspiring. The section perspectives show the important parts of this building. In contemporary practice I can create a section pespective of any part of my model, but not necessarily with the critical eye that's required for good design.


I love drawings.

Drawing is an important exercise for an architect. Careful and considered drawings connect us to our designs in a way the computer never can.
