Form and Content: A series of 5 novellas that combines a democratic ideal with a complementary art medium.

Parallel Topography: 3D Line Drawing and Community

40 Pages 9 1/2” x 11”

 

Form: a translation of line drawing techniques into an architectural language

Content: community as an environment that suggests empathy; a series of overlapping spaces

Lines: Depth of field: thick, thin, light, dark, colored lines

Forms: Solid: opaque; Space: transparent; overlapping

Movement: spatial displacement is created by a form in a transparent void

Abstraction: increases to a symbol

Marks: Brush Strokes: parallel points, vertical lines, horizontal planes, and continuous forms; Drips: Cylinders

Color: Monochrome: Light Color: forms defined by points, lines; Dark Color: forms defined by planes, forms

2 or more Colors: Cool Colors: forms defined by points, lines; Warm Colors: forms defined by planes, forms

Symbols: Points: 2 Spheres; Lines: 2 Cones; Planes: 2 Pyramids; Forms: 2 Cubes

Linear Approximation: 3D Sketches and Tolerance

50 Pages 9 1/2” x 11”

 

Form: a translation of sketch techniques into an architectural language

Content: an environment that suggests tolerance as an increase in empathy; a contraction of overlapping spaces

Lines: Discontinuous Lines: parallel points; Light Lines: parallel lines; Medium Lines: parallel planes;

Heavy Lines: continuous forms

Erasures: Truncated: abbreviated points, lines, planes, and forms; Open: offset, parallel planes; Closed: offset, parallel forms

Tone: Light Color: forms defined by points, lines; Dark Color: forms defined by planes, forms

Sketch: Vignette: a partial extrapolation of forms; Frame: a stepped solid composed of a decreasing number of lines

Grayscale: 3D Sculpture and Humility

38 Pages 9 1/2” x 11”

 

Form: a translation of sculptural techniques into an architectural language

Content: an environment that suggests humility as off-center empathy; an eccentric void of overlapping spaces

Mass: size of form

Density: Light Tone: least dense; Dark Tone: most dense

Interior Space: Angular Forms: least amount of interior void; Parallel Forms: intermediate amount of interior void; Curved Forms: most amount of interior void

Sculpting: Faceting: angled form where the size of the void is related to the mass and the density of the

Carving: parallel forms generate the least number of forms, angular forms generate an intermediate form; number of forms, curvilinear generate the most number of forms

Molding: a matrix that is composed of rectilinear volumes that surrounds forms and voids

42 Pages 9 1/2” x 11”

 

Form: a translation of collage techniques into an architectural language

Content: an environment that suggests equality as inclusive empathy; a surround of overlapping spaces

Color: gray forms resolve the geometry of the colored forms

Assemblage: basic unit is the colored and gray forms

Placement: location and direction in space is created with stepped forms

Frame: a volume of space that is defined by points in between assemblages
