A record of my first arkie project

I’ve spent a few minutes here compiling progress snaps of my first project here at the School of Architecture. Throughout this process, I struggled to allow imperfections to exist within my work. As an engineer, I’m accustomed to the perfect lines and exact data provided by a computer. With carbon on paper, noise occurs like static on the radio, and subjective or impressionistic judgement calls are often the only way forward. Calculations are conducted with dividers, compasses, scales and common, rounded proportionality. Color is applied manually with watercolor washes that fill regions consistently (if the water’s surface tension is managed and leveraged properly). No design decision is too small to contemplate and the final product contains one’s personality at many profound and nuanced levels.

Drafting: The design was fairly specified by the "client" to be a Doric pavilion to be used as a entrance gate for a formal garden.
