This vault is the product of a collaborative architecture seminar which has been researching Form and Structure, specifically the work of master mason Rafael Guastavino around the turn of the 20th Century. The final 1/4 scale replica is a segment of his vault for the Manhattan Municipal Building in New York. the Art of Daylighting Design - Instructor: Mary Guzowski

The most successful spaces in architecture pay close attention to the dynamic nature of daylighting, and carefully manipulate it to suit the program and user most favorably. Here, an intense iterative process resulted in a final “light box” design for a proposed contemplative space. Carefully thoughtout material palettes, cuts, gaps, prisms, and intriguing daylighting strategies help create this most interesting and dynamic contemplative space-for-one.

Light, Order, and the transformative potential of photography in architecture: Scrutinized through various diagramming techniques, including photography, technical and hybrid drawings, a stairwell is abstracted and documented in order to more clearly understand the space and its hidden beauty.

Design Fundamentals II - Instructors: John Comazzi, Adam Jarvi, Alicia Liebel

Here, I ask you to stop and see architecture with a new mindset, in hopes of displaying how it poses itself to us. The carefully selected pairings of images provide another level of interest and beauty beyond stand-alone images, and the general arrangement presents a path for your eye to follow both the authoritative and whimsical nature of architecture.
