Hey, I’ve been learning to paint digitally recently. So, deciding to start another sub-blog for the sake of having a record and staying accountable to my short term goals.
folio (late 2013) is a record of my Y2S1 work at the University of Dundee.
Rather than making another bound volume for the sake of a single semesters work I decided to try something a little more fun. An A1 sheet is folded down so it can be stored in an A4 format. Each sheet is dedicated to a single project, and as the projects (arranged chronologically) become more complex more paper space is given to them.
Still a work in progress but I feel I’m at the stage where I need a 1:1 print copy in order to fully understand what changes are to be made, and unfortunately that will have to wait a while.
Port folio (2012-13) is a hand bound roughly fifty page A4 formatted book containing all the work of note that I completed in first year at the city of Glasgow college and the university of Dundee.
Punctuated with quotes from architects and authors that influenced the project that follows it is a record for personal use only that will hopefully form a diary of my architectural education.
A book is also a really fun thing to design, print and make. It’s not a serious exercise really.
Hey man, thanks very much.
Everything you see is 2D software, usually a mix of Photoshop, Illustrator and perhaps CAD. The one exception is the charrette visual which is 3dsmax, but I pretty much never use it.
I use a mix of photographs of real models, sketchup models, hand drawn perspectives (sketched and measured) as the base image then sort of trace them on Photoshop with layers of textures or blocked in colour, lines etc until I have the impression I’m going for.
The first projects of Y2, a series of 7 charrettes revolving around the design of a 6x6x6m passivehaus standard cubehouse.
