Documentation I

The purpose was to study the East Falls bridge which lies near campus. It is
an historic bridge in the area that is worth spending time at.

6 These are perspective images of the East Falls Bridge. These pictures were taken from the north end of the bridge.This is a sketch of the area and of the East Falls Bridge (top) and a collage of the bridge (bottom). 7 . The collage is an assembly of multiple images taken from the south end of the bridge.

Project: 2 Manipulation The purpose was to edit several pictures of the East Falls Bridge in order to capture a moment or story using Adobe Photoshop. 8 9 .

11 .These are images of the East falls Bridge that have been edited in order to capture a moment in each image. The original pictures are on the right of each set while the edited pictures are on the left of the set. 10 The edits in these images are solely done using Photoshop.

We were to use hand drawing abilities and Photoshop 12 13 .Project 3: Collage The purpose was to capture a specific moment in one image of the East Falls bridge in detail.

14 15 .The original image was zoomed in and a specific potion was hand drawn to capture a moment or movement. The intention was to capture the horizontal movement of the beams and provide a greater reading of depth. The hand drawn portion was then edited into the final.

16 17 .Project 4: Texture The purpose was to use hand and digital techniques to create a perspective a house studied in Design 2. The house I studied was the Paulk Residence built by James Cutler in Seaback Washington.

This is the Paulk Residence. The hand drawn perspective was edited in Photoshop to add texture and detail to complete the view. It over looks Mt. which was studied in Design 2. The house sits deep in the woods outside of Seattle. 18 19 . Olympus and the Hood Canal.

The object I chose was a simple watch. 20 21 .Project 5: Representation I The purpose was to pick an object and create the appropriate drawings to relay the necessary information by hand.

the drawings were then scanned into Photoshop for final post processing 22 23 . The appropriate measurements were taken and the drawings were completed by hand.The object chosen was to have several drawings made to represent the object appropriately.

The same watch was chosen as in the previous assingment 24 25 .Project 6: Representation II The purpose was to pick an object and create the appropriate drawings to relay the necessary information digitally.

The object. this time around the drawings were to be completed using Illustrator which eliminates the need to post process the scanned drawings. However. 26 27 . was to have several drawings created in order to relay the necessary information. same as last time.

28 29 . I chose to improve my digital submission of the watch drawings. Project 6.Project 7: Freeswim The purpose was to pick a prior assignment and attempt it again in order to complete it better.

This is the first attempt at using Illustrator to draw the six views of the watch. 31 . 30 In the second attempt. I paid closer attention to line weight and placement of construction lines.

Project 8: Documentation II The purpose was to visit the Barnes Foundation and capture a specifc concept through images and drawings. 32 33 . The Barnes foundation is an art museum in Philadelphia located next to the Ben Franklin Parkway.

These are four sketches of the Barnes Foundation ( Philadelphia) that convey one concept. but we were unable to study the reflecting pools due to this. 35 . nature in the city and around the museum. The snow allowed for a reading of the building that we may have lost. 34 These are four perspective images of the Barnes Founudation using the same concept of nature. I happened to visit the foundation just after a snow storm.

36 37 . The collage conveys the same concept of nature in the given environment. The intention was to give the sprawling branches a heavy reading with the Barnes Foundation in the background.This collage is comprised of several images overlapping to produce one image.

38 39 .Project 9: Constructs I The purpose was to edit pictures of the house model created in Design 2. to show a concept and more detail. digitally and by hand.

The concept of the rigid axial placement of the house is shown using Photoshop and Illustrator. A perspective (bottom) was create using an image of the model then completed by hand.The Paulk Residence was studied and modeled in Design 2. Photoshop and Illustrator. The model was placed into its actual setting in Washington. Both were done using hand drawing. 41 . 40 A section drawing (top) was created using images of the model.

Project 10: Constructs II The purpose was to edit images of the house model created in Design 2 to enhance the model. All edits were done using Photoshop 42 43 .

44 All of the original pictures of the model are on the left while the edited and fixed pictures are on the right.Three images of the model of the Paulk Residence were taken and edited to fix errors and enhance the image. 45 .

The Building that I worked with was Expo 2000 which was part of the 2000 world fair. II The purpose of this project was to create a presentation board for a building in a group or partnership. The building begins the conversation of technology and nature working together in the same space. The building is part of the 2000 Holland World Fair and is meant to capture the positive stereotypes of the Dutch culture. It is the first of its kind to do this and therefore served as an excellent study for using nature within a building for the future. This provides a space that covers a variety of uses while freeing up space in the surrounding area Narrative for other purposes. 46 47 . There are six environments stacked on top of each other. The building incorporates nature elements in both its interior and Project: its exteri-12 or.expo 2000 Expo 2000 was built by MVRDV to represent the Dutch culture in one building.

48 49 . This provides a space that covers a variety of uses while freeing up space in the surrounding area for other purposes. It is the first of its kind to do this and therefore served as an excellent study for using nature within a building for the future.expo 2000 Expo 2000 was a ground breaking building that represented the entire Dutch culture. There are six environments stacked on top of each other. The Building was the first of its kind in means of vertical farming. This building introduced the idea of using a condensed space to farm on several levels. The building is part of the 2000 Holland World Fair and is meant to capture the positive stereotypes of the Dutch culture. The building incorporates nature elements in both its interior and its exterior. Expo 2000 was built by MVRDV to represent the Dutch culture in one building. The building begins the conversation of technology and nature working together in the same space.

The epic was intended to be a comdey at the time. This could be done by any means necessary. The book that I chose was The Inferno by Dante Aligheri in the 1300’s.Project: 13 Recover The purpose of this project was to take a book and re-design a cover for it. 50 51 .

I chose to represent this using only charcoal as my medium. This was to show the book in use and to also give a scale reference.The Inferno is about a traveller accompanied by a guide that travel throught the nine circles of hell. Once printed and applied to a copy of the original book. I took pictures of my book cover design. 52 53 . Once my drawing was completed I scanned it into Photoshop and later to InDesign for the text and post processing.

The school that I chose was Princeton School of arcitecture. 54 55 . This project gave us a chance to look into our graphic design skills.Project: 14 Graphic The purpose of this project was to select an architecture school and design a lecture series poster for the school.

That hepled to choose the image and the architects that I chose to speak in ym lecture series. Princeton is an advocate of New Urbanism. 56 57 .Princeton likes to use bright colors and chunky text in their posters and recently have been pushing towards using powerful vintage styled images in the background of the poster.

In Design 2. whether it complimented the original or not. The scond part of the project was left open to our choice 58 59 . This design was based on the original house.Project: 15 Perspective The purpose of this project was to provide a perspective section of our final model for Design 2 studio. we were to create a visitor’s center for the house we studied earlier in the semester.

The house sits slightly east of the original house in Seaback Washington. 61 .This is perspective section of my visitor center design for the Paulk Residence. I created this using Photography. this is taken through the reception. hand drawing. 60 Given a free reign with the final I assignent I chose to put my final visitor center for the Paulk Residence into its repsective envirnonment. Illustrator and Photoshop. gallery and observatory areas of the building looking east.
