Pierre Is A Linselus

Finally Finished

My group's Naked House prodject is finished. We just turned in our work. Tomorrow is the presentation. 16 groups have worked on analyzing different buildings. Can't wait to see the result. This is just two of a lot of renderings. Maybe I'll post some more of them later.

Seeing Orange

This is a very orange room in the back of our studio.

Fully Flared

Hands down, the best skate intro ever. Architecturally, this video is interesting to look at since the built environment dissolves - in slow motion.

Shigeru All The Way

I'm still working on the project about Shigeru Ban's Naked House. I really like his work. He uses materials in a new way and thinks about the environment. I forgot to tell you, but I acutally recieved an e-mail from his office. They couldn't help me though. I'll blog my rendrings when they are done.
