The concept of this project came from studying the Downtown Quarters district. Following research it was apparent that diversity was a strong theme to incorporate into my design because of the local diversity in culture, age, and financial status. The client’s aspirations were to stay true to the district’s communal roots and I believed that diversity was the most important feature to include. Diversity is translated in this building through its dynamic curvature, levels, volume, shapes and materials. I used Sketchup as my primary tool to allow me to translate diversity into my final design by converting a simple AutoCAD floor plan and push/pulling each level into a 3D model and then piecing them together. I then added basic Sketchup materials to the façade and polished it up with iRender to add realism to the final rendering.

For the assignment on the left we were given a basic floor plan along with exterior elevations to translate into a 3D model in Sketchup. We were then asked to add materials as well as iRender texture styles in order to create a realistic rending. To the right is a rendering of the interior of the ATB bank design. Using the same techniques as the exterior rendering, I was able to give the client an accurate idea of how the interior of the bank would look.


For this assignment we were given guidelines to a residential space. Following the dimensions given on our work sheet we were to use Revit to develop a 3D model to pull floor plans, elevations, and interior elevations from, fully annotated.

For this assignment we were given an AutoCAD commercial floor plan to recreate in Revit. We were then asked to add materials and populate with entourage to help give the rendering a realistic feel. We also had the opportunity to use Revit’s Panorama rendering feature which can be accessed by scanning the bar code located at the bottom left of the second page.

Throughout my schooling we have worked with AutoCAD extensively. The picture on the left shows one of my most recent floor plans, fully annotated with dimensions, wall tags, window tags, room tags, door tags, and callouts. For the image on the right I wanted to show one of the harder drawings we were asked to present which is why I chose the stair section to code with proper rise/run, landing dimensions, and railing dimensions complete with details.

For this spread I wanted to show the evolution of my bank design from freshly rendered out of Sketchup to presentation ready after editing in Photoshop. Here I added a vibrant sky background, entourage (with varying effects), and highlights to make the building pop.

This assignment was our introduction to Photoshop. We were given a basic rendering then asked to add entourage with effects, replace the car at the bottom left corner of the rendering with a new one, add a proper background, and finish it off with highlights.
