Architecture

I have survived my first term of grad school at University of Oregon. Some days were exciting and inspiring. Some days were pure torture lost in a blur of sleep deprivation and anxiety. I haven’t got a clue if this is the right decision to make but at least I’ve got money to live on for now and a little hope of earning some in the future with my expanded skill set. Nine more terms to go.

I’d like to share pictures of the project I worked on in my Intro to Grad Design class, since I’ve got nothing new to report on for Seed in the Sand. My instructor appreciated some elements of my project but considered it an atypical response to the assignment and not a set of structures suitable to be built, except for the tower which she really liked. We were presented with fictitious clients with specific desires for a location which was based on a real piece of land by a lake. They wanted a Wall house, a Tower and a Cube House.

Here is my interpretation:
