â€œDesign creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future.â€? -Robert L. Peters
EXPLORING ABSTRACTION Spring 2012 Instructor: Adam Jarvi
1. This project started with a clove hitching knot. 2. The movement of the knot from one end to the other was modeled into a 3”x4”x5” box using 3 feet of wire. 3. Mass and volume were then created using the wire as a frame. 4. The volume became a void within a larger space and then was cut in half diagonally, exposing the interior voids. The final image shows how people could then interact with the space. The goal of the project was to create voids and shapes resulting in an interesting space. 1
PLATE VI- THE SMOKING FIRE Fall 2012 Instructor: Arthur Chen
This project began with an 8.5”x11” etching done by Piranesi, which was glued to a 24”x36” drawing board. Instructions were to expand the etching to create an infinite space, seamlessly flowing out of the etching using felt tip pen to match the drawing style. 3
UTILITY/LUXURY/VALUE SHELVING PROJECT
Spring 2013 Instructor: Charlie Lazer
This project involved the creation of a storage/shelving unit that was to be enhanced with used items which would add value to the unit. My three shelves are each 2’x2’x1’ made out of 1/2” MDF. Wallpaper scraps were applied to add visual appeal and mismatched drawer and cabinet pulls were added for functionality as hooks and handles. 5
ARCHITECTURAL DRAWING HENNEPIN LIBRARY-SOUTHEAST Fall 2012 Instructor: Arthur Chen
These drawings were an exercise that focused on architectural drafting. All dimensions of the building were measured and then used to create different views and a column perspective detail. These drawings tell a story about the building, showing how the idea of a grid drives the plan of the building and how the columns provide a pattern of structure.
Front Section 8
This replica model of the Humboldt Lofts includes the complete exterior envelope of the building and two interior levels. The process of building this model helped to understand all of the parts and ideas that made up the building and how they fit together.
HUMBOLDT LOFTS BY JULIE SNOW Fall 2013 Instructor: Mark Tambornino
The goal of this project was to Elevation dissectFront and understand what made this building unique and a successful piece of architecture. By creating a replica model and 3 organizing models, I demonstrated what I believed to be the most important design aspects of this building.

This organizing model is a 3 dimensional puzzle that shows how the units fit together and interact with one another. Each unit is its own unique size and shape.
3rd and 4th level units pulled apart
This model demonstrates the unique way the column grid is not associated with the exterior skin of the building, but with the interior. The columns also interact with each unit differently because of how the units are shaped and positioned.
Scale: 1/16”=1’-0” Materials used: 0.05” acrylic and 3/8” dowels 11
Brick Corten Steel Glazing
The exterior of the building is a series of three different materials that appear as three layers. This gives the building a more unique exterior and sets it apart from surrounding brick apartment buildings.
DRAWINGS AND PAINTINGS
Other work I have done throughout my undergraduate studies includes architectural drawings with pencil and charcoal and architectural paintings with watercolor. 13
