JUST A FEW WEEKS LEFT TO CHECK OUT ONE OF NATURES BEAUTIES AND OUR STATE FLOWER.
A DESIGN STUDY LOOKING AT THE ESSENTIALS OF BAJA LIVING. A BIKINI, A SHELTER OVER YOUR HEAD AND A COLD ONE.
MID-CENTURY MODERN INSPIRED COMMUNITY COMING SOON TO SANTA BARBARA.
WE HAVE JUST RETURNED FROM SIERRA LEONE AND EXCITED TO START WORKING ON A NEW PROJECT WITH A NON-PROFIT OUT OF SANTA BARBARA! THE PICTURES BELOW ARE TAKEN AROUND THE CAPITAL OF FREETOWN. YOU CAN GET A GLIMPSE OF THE CITY'S DENSITY AND LIVING CONDITIONS. AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE AND A NEW FOUND LOVE FOR THIS COUNTRY.
is cardboard modeling outdated?
In a time when the majority of architectural modeling is computer based, outsourced or printed, a question arises that asks the relevance of traditional approaches to modeling techniques in a modern office.
Our investigations of form, siting and landscape require concentrated time and effort with a presence of hand, to touch and feel. Thus allowing the design process to reflect the link between slowness, memory and the human senses.
It is the tactile experience of cutting, careful placement and sketching that allows us to better understand the relationships between landforms and built forms.
Clients see, touch (no one can resist), feel a part, and fall in love with the ideas designers create; we see the development of these study models as an integral and essential component of the design process.
THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL 2016! CAN SOMEBODY PUT A QUARTER IN THE WAVE MACHINE?
