A GLIMPSE...

 

"Architects have the responsibility to create buildings that are the physical symbol of our society, of space, and of time. The end result must be the material manifestation of the present, reminiscent of the past while directing us to the future.  This is our burden and our great privilege."

- LISA B. WELCH

 

 
 

ZERO TO CONCEPT IN 3.8 MINUTES

 

What you are about to see is an architectural design concept from first line on paper to rough draft.  Thousands upon thousands of decisions are analyzed, building codes are examined, client’s program is dissected and interpreted, budgets are considered, proportions are studied, light and shadow are investigated.  All this and more happens over several hours of intense focus.  Here, with movie magic, condensed down to a tiny fraction of the actual time required.  These are just the initial steps.  From here the concept continues to be revised and in some respects the design process never stops.
