Last comment as a freshman

during the jury

One more jury has passed away and I have just realised that I feel more comfortable about presenting my works unlike the first semester. I get used to the studio environment where has became a second home to me. My adventure as a freshman is about to come to an end, and I can’t wait to see what my sophomore year will bring to me. 🙂



Shade & Shadow Drawing

Attached is my shadow drawing of my final seed model. [Scale: 2/1] Light is coming from the upper left corner with the angle of 45 degree.

Abstracting “White U” from Toyo Ito [draft model]

As a group of four people we were assigned to make an abstract model of White U from Toyo Ito. It’s a U shaped house designed for a mother and her two daughters to live in. Since every surfaces of the building is white, it’s called as “White U”.

The relation of the building to the outside world is nearly completely restricted. However, there is almost no rapture inside it. So that we have considered that there is transparent situation inside the complex. Secondly light is a very important element for the purpose of White U, that’s why we took it as a factor to use in the model.

To work on light condition we have played with the density of the layers. And for the aim of indicating that transparent situation which is very dominant in the curved area of the structure, we have used framed elements.

Here is our draft model:

Section Drawing


It’s like slicing a cake! To produce a section drawing you first start with slicing (not physically of course) the model you are planning to draw. Later, different than other drawing techniques (image that you are really going slice the model with a knife) you color bolder or hatch the surfaces that the knife touches while slicing.

Normally in section drawing you don’t have to draw all the sections unless it is an extruded section drawing (like ours).
