B.Arch. Year 1
Jesse Pazmino, "Shattered Glass," for ARCH 113 (studio I). This is part of the geometry studies created during the first semester. The assignment proposed creating an interesting piece of art by using one geometric shape repeatedly with a predictable pattern.
First-year studio (ARCH 113). This project is called "Geometry in the Field."
Ashleyann Sanabria, "Liquid Container," for ARCH 113 (studio I). The goal of this project was to use drafting techniques learned earlier in the semester to visually explain the function of a complex container. In this case, the complex container is a teapot and the drawing explains the process of making tea.
Aldair Renteria, "Stair Axonometric, Crown Hall," for ARCH 113 (studio I).
Rei Karasawa, Kyle Fouchey, John Connor and Adam Buerger (shown left to right), "Chair Study: Cardboard Chair," for ARCH 113 (studio I). The concept of the project was to use the Navy Chair as inspiration for designing a similar chair from cardboard. Aspects of the original chair will change depending on the materials used in its recreation.
Jesse Pazmino, "The Chair Dance," for ARCH 113 (studio I). This is the last drafting assignment that complements the chair study. It's meant to visually explain how the chair operates in original and cardboard form while presenting comparisons between the chairs' shape and construction.
Kirsten Landmark Masih, "Transitional Space Model." The transitional space model is meant to evoke a specific experience while keeping sun and shadows in mind at different times of the day. Here the primary considerations pertained to ascending, descending, and experiencing open versus enclosed areas.
Zihua Cai, "Transitional Space Model."
Kirsten Landmark Masih, "Line and Field Drawing." Students were tasked to show how an accumulation of parallel lines can create a field by varying their line weights. Here, the concept of a field is further developed to depict three dimensional planes which interact with one another.
Evan Tjondro-Koesovo, Teresa Kostova and Hans Griese, "Color Installation" for ARCH 114 (studio II). This project was inspired by the Black Cross, a painting by Georgia O'Keefe. The project explores the possibilities of color manipulation through the use of light reflected off of particular colors.
Min Kim, "Building Study Project: 4x4 House, Tadao Ando," for ARCH 114 (studio II.) This wooden component model of Tadao Ando's 4x4 House shows distinct separation of program, structure, and circulation components within the house. The model also highlights the site of the project, a small 5x5 meter lot off the coast, which influenced the project to become a minimal lighthouse that overlooks the ocean.
Ryan Gann, "Building Study Project: Villa dall'Ava, Rem Koolhas," for ARCH 114 (studio II). This hand-drafted perspective of Rem Koolhaas’s Villa dall’Ava focuses on materiality and structure. Using aerial and worm's-eye views, the drawing highlights the rooftop pool, corresponding terrace and spindly piloti.
