VILLA STEIN DE MONZIE // 2018 Museum Board, Acrylic, Basswood Collaborators: Mitchell Lawrence Instructor: Michael Jefferson ARCH 218 Comparative model exploring the underlying grid similarities of Villa Stein de Monzie to Palladio’s Villa Malcontenta as originally proposed by Collin Rowe in “The Mathematics of the Ideal Villa.”


IM ¡ PRESS VERB to leave a mark a three-dimensional three model visual exploration of how to depict the verb impress (1) uncovering impress utilizing planes (2) the act of creating an impression; condensing of materials to form an impression (3) a shift to relying on form and volumes to create an impression of threshold spaces

IMPRESS MODEL SERIES // 2018 Chipboard Instructor: Michael Jefferson ARCH 218


Using conventions from the previous three model exploration, a set of elements from the final iteration are used to create a spacial model. These elements include the orthogonal vertical and horizontal language, moments in which 30 degree angles dictate spaces, and moments in which irregular angles are used to create intentional interrupted moments.

RECLAIMING EILEEN GRAY’S VOICE This collection of drawings of E.1027 serves to ensure that Gray’s design voice, presence, and intent is the center of discussion when viewing her work. It works to emit Corbusier’s attempt to gain credit for the villa and instead focuses on Gray’s intentional thresholds and integrated furniture design sensibility.
