Master's Thesis, Kindergarten, 2008. Simple program with an open floor plan - a focus on the construction aspect of the drawings: reduce a complex 3-D form with multi-directional curvature to a clear 2-D plan, section, elevation, facades.  The curvature of the walls equals stronger structural performance as they embrace their young occupants.  For further information, please see my book, A Shapely Resistance.

Wall/roof studies modeled after the hands:

Projection studies; 2007, showing spherical and oblong domes.  The projection lines helped to inform the mullions: (these and many of the other drawings were quite large, click the thumbnails for detailed view)

More projection studies, 2006, showing a tower designed by my excellent classmate Yun Gal - her idea was to fit the tower to a base which distributed the load over a clear distance, reducing the building's footprint and opening up a plaza underneath.  In my drawings, the projection lines started to inform the construction of the base as well as helping to define what became the connective tissue between multiple towers, a covered marketplace/plaza. (the thick paper I used couldn't fit through large format rollers - these drawings had to be photographed, thus the color distortion)

More traditional buildings/drawings, 2005:
