My sustained investigation is how can I design a contemporary house in an unordinary house environment?
I found new ways to incorporate elements from nature and use them in the design of my houses. I practiced and expanded my architectural skills which resulted in more complex designs tailored to t the environment. Guided by the principles of design, I implemented little hidden features to the house that were inspired by the functions they’d ideally have, such as slide 2 where I made the house triangular like a bunker. I also experimented with different materials and styles in order to capture different textures, materials, and depict realism in my art. I experimented with metallic pen, pointillism, and a mixture of raw pencil marks and blended pencil marks to depict different textures that can also show my imagination. I wanted to really wanted to expand my style of design and began to create more intricate designs through Sketchup. In my house that was in the plains, I wanted the house to be very unordinary but remain balanced. Using these different methods has allowed me to think about the different ways a house can t in its environment while remaining contemporary.
