Yesterday was a long haul...

Spent most of the early morning and mid-day friekin out about how my project was coming, or at least how my professor thought my project was a chance to sit down and talk with him about it, and I suppose he thinks I'm moving in a more positive direction now

Made a suuuuuuper sweet, sexy model in my overnight stay in the studio, however -- check this thing out! ( still a few things to finish on it..)

Also, my lovely mother came in and took me out for dinner, along with a short stay in studio to check out what I've been up to!

Stressful days.....

Lots of work to do, running out of time!

This weekend I'm trying to figure out the structure of my building, and I think I have figured out what I'm going to do. Using a diagrid system of the exterior walls to eliminate interior columns, I don't know much about this system, but supposedly the exterior walls are built so strong they can hold up the interior spans of floors? We shall see....

Anyways, here's some photos of my new massing model, and a process picture of a new structural model I am making to try and exhibit my sweet structural ideas!

Structural model -- in process

Didnt realize this when I took the pic, but my computer was sleeping and playing a slide show of my pics, thats me singing and rockin out with my band at what was Ryan's going away party in March at Bogies Pub!

Trying to put together some exterior facade ideas - taking from ideas of the overall rectangular/cube form rotating and using those lines and or intersections to create spaces for glazing and a way to communicate the idea of the interior on the exterior...overlapping intersections of normal shapes create interesting voids and contrasts of space and light

Las Vegas Architecture field trip---

The Pops and I made it a point to check out the new City Center complex while in Vegas, I needed to do some research on architect David Libeskind and he had just made new newly constructed craziness, so lucky me!


Site model!

Some crazy mural, I'm assuming its to explain the design concept of the building in some way
