A slight diversion

So built architecture sometimes starts out in a professional design studio as a series of models and drawings that explore potential solutions to the design issues at play. Some of it turns out transcendent and some of it turns out, well, irresponsible. Here at IIT, in the final semester of the master’s program, us students are doing the same thing, mostly without possibility of our proposals actually being built. That does not make the models, or the ideas that inform, any less exciting however, and below is a collection of images showing some of the work that my colleagues and I have been doing this semester.

This is a proposed commuter rail station on the campus of NCSU.

A tower for Shanghai, temporarily sitting in the Chicago River

More towers

Urban context around the Polish Triangle, and study models

Site model from chip and cardboard.

More actual architecture criticism will occur in this space at some point after final review, on the 25th.
