Rewind : Year 1 – So it begins

2015. A simple year. My first year as an Architecture student was full of the usual, Gen. Ed. classes and the hectic running back and forth around campus. My favorite part has always been sitting at my drafting table, no matter the time of day.

Drawing and Graphics Studio was a studio to learn the basics. A gentle introduction to the tools and methods I used to think architects used their whole life. (That was a lie – Since the rise of technology, fewer and fewer Architects depend on hand drawing and rendering for any part of the design process).

Nevertheless, it was hand-drafted floor plans and sketches that first attracted me to pursue a career in architecture. I enjoyed every moment of it as I persevered through (and learned to love) the tiresome methods of drawing axonometric, oblique,

and perspective sketches. I enjoy sketching and coloring design proposals, and I hope to be able to incorporate sketching and hand-rendering as much as possible in my future career.

These are just some of the examples of the work I did. It’s easy to look back and see all of the flaws in my work, but that’s the process of learning. The more of it I do, the easier it gets, and the more I enjoy it.
