Where my inspiration comes from...

All inspiration has to come from something, somewhere out there....

Personally i draw my inspirations from photographs, objects, or spaces that feel to come alive in front of my eyes. When starting out with an idea I imagine the whole site as a blank canvas, molding the space into it is needed for.

BP 10: The Camera

The object I believe represents a revolution in design is the camera. The pinhole camera was first invented around 1000 AD. From then the camera has been refined hundreds and hundreds of times. The camera changed the ways in which we saw the world. We were able to record photographs easier than ever before. Instead of taking time to paint a portrait we could just snap a shot, freezing time.

The polaroid camera

35mm SLR camera

DSLR camera

Above are just a few generations of the camera. Photography now doesn't seem like such a revolution, but imagine what life would be like without photographs...

bp 9

colonial expansion

Because we were a new country and starting out we referred back to other countries and things that had already been designed, for example building in rome. These buildings influenced the way houses were built and cities were arranged.

TO the US

the pantheon has the large front portico which we adapted into our georgian style homes.


Language is different everywhere you go but in a sense it all still fits together. Different buildings have a different style language. In class we said a word is like one detail about something, then a sentence is a combination of words adding up to make a sentence, Then a phrase is the over all concept.
