Well Google is getting rid of its RSS Reader, which I use to follow a bunch of architecture blogs. This is unfortunate because its perfect for going through image based blog posts. But also Google Reader is where I saved all the blog post I was interested in so that I could reference them later. So while I haven’t found an adequate replacement for reading, I starting using Pintrest to catalog interesting projects. I love the visual catalog and the community aspect allowing me to find things that don’t flow through my RSS reader.

Quick post process break down of the main image for the Shell House.
Original rendering from V-Ray for Rhino.
Final drawings for my last school project a 800 sq. ft. house. Set upon a concrete pad the house responds to its unique condition by layering screens and plants to soften the harsh exterior environment. To extend the living space the Living room and Bed rooms were conceived as both interior and exterior spaces that can be opened to each-other. (click on images to enlarge)
Quick preview of my final studio project, will post more drawings later.
This house design while still in its infancy is an attempt to design an ADA accessible house that has multiple level changes. This lead to an interior ramp that organizes the project and provides accessibly to all spaces.
New drawings for the LAUSD School Garden project.
