16. "Argyle Gardens"
In response to Reply # 2


  

          

Argyle Gardens is the first buildout of LISAH (Low Income Single Adult Housing), a dignified co-housing model designed to accommodate an optimum number of people to share community space and support.
I feel that the simple design created a simple resolution to a complex design problem.

what skill sets should she acquire? do u have any activities that u suggest he does with her to help her towards her path?

also, what's the difference between an architectural technician and an architect?

17. "Excellent!"
In response to Reply # 3


  

          

Great for her! I'm happy to hear that the younger generation is interested in architecture.

I would say the most critical skill is to draw, yes drawing by hand. It's imperative to be able to communicate visually quickly. Tell her to draw everyday, doesn't have to be perfect or sophisticated but have her draw and communicate what she drew. All the other stuff will fall into place naturally.

An architectural technician is a CAD drafter or someone who isn't licensed to practice architecture. An architect is a person who has gone through school, internship, and passed their exams to practice architecture.

that integrate with it's context or the site in a harmless way. Fallingwater is good example of that. Frank Lloyd Wright has few buildings that are beautifully done including the Guggenheim museum in New York. Usually simple designs that create beautiful spaces inspire me.

great question — I'd like to know this, too.

also, do all architects write with the same 'big caps, little caps' letters? (it's so cool)

I would say at this point no. The older generation of architects had to do "lettering" in which we had to practice day in and day out but now things are computerized so we don't do that as much now.

Everyone who came to visit was impressed with my little studio apt because it was designed so simple, yet functional.

All 3 floors had unique designs.

But I currently don't do it on regular basis.

I've been doing architecture for about 15 years or so.

I worked on a local high school which was fun: https://www.nacarchitecture.com/portfolio/BellevueHS.html#

This passive house designed multi-family was interesting since it was on a tight sight: https://www.google.com/maps/uv?pb=!1s0x549015324267a331%3A0xe474eb4a456cc0e8!3m1!7e115!4s%2Fmaps%2Fplace%2Fthe%2Bcore%2Bapartments%2Bseattle%2F%4047.6204097%2C-122.3230571%2C3a%2C75y%2C255.02h%2C90t%2Fdata%3D*213m4*211e1*213m2*211sf3Rr9uEzBZgj1XcryivAlA*212e0*214m2*213m1*211s0x549015324267a331%3A0xe474eb4a456cc0e8%3Fsa%3DX!5sthe%20core%20apartments%20seattle%20-%20Google%20Search!15sCgIgAQ&imagekey=!1e2!2sf3Rr9uEzBZgj1XcryivAlA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiGx5vd677tAhXTqp4KHZ9CB5kQpx8wCnoECBcQAw


Favorite design/buildings would be any of Santiago Calatrava's buildings


Favorite city would be hard to nail down but a few would be Vancouver, Quebec, Barcelona, Lagos, Dubai and Paris to name a few.

The openness of the spaces especially.

The 'rain garden' seems like a nice touch, especially for a high school.

Design. Unfortunately he isn't really taught in architecture school in the US. The US pushes Les Corbusier, Mies Van der Rohe, and Eero Saarinen and FLW.
Great architect who doesn't get much credit.

I really haven't seen a good portrayal of an architect in media but there have been a few

Matthew Broderick The cable guy
The dude from "How I met your mother"
Tom Hanks in Sleepless in Seattle
There is a horror film called the architect, which made me laugh more than anything.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

If I have one regret it is dropping out of the architecture program.

I was one of three other "Black guys" one from Gabon and the other from Jamaica.

What is the fanciest project you have been apart of?

Any, area, city, country, that seems to be more innovative and in demand for architects?

34. "Not many"
In response to Reply # 13


  

          

The start of my class we had about 5 by graduation time it was two. My other colleague actually didn't get his BArch but he did graduate.
The funny thing is he's doing quite well with his own residential design firm.

I've done quite a few fancy school out here in the PNW. It's crazy to see the disparity between schools in well to do areas versus schools in minority areas.

Europe and Asia really value architects more than the US. Asia really demands for some projects to get a western white architect to be on their design projects.

25. "what changes when you're licensed? "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

yo. I went to design school and most of the people I kicked it with were architecture students.

my alumni circle that I still talk to on the regular were all archi folks. it's been funny how its all worked out. some have moved on to other things but one of my buddies has been holding down the same job for over ten years with a small boutique firm.

dude has never gone on to get his license and its been a weird point with him. why go for it if he already has a job is the logic. if he were to do it, what would change for him?

In response to Reply # 25


  

          


But really you can do commercial projects in all areas. Most states allow people who aren't licensed to do residential projects up to a certain size. I will say once you're licensed the sky is the limit you can work on any project and market yourself as an architect.

For your friend, I agree if he has the job there doesn't seem like there is a reason to get licensed but what happens when he loses that job? I would highly recommend he becomes licensed, he doesn't have to use it but it's great to have and maintain so when he wants to move on, or pursue a job somewhere else, or he plans to take over for his boss it would be great to have.

Why do you think we are still obsessed with architecture from the Victorian era to the 60s?

What are we not doing presently that keeps us from creating iconic architecture?

47. "Modernism era"
In response to Reply # 38


  

          

I'm assuming you're talking about that. Like it was mentioned there are other eras.
I would say that was the golden era of architecture, there were classic iconic architects who controlled the whole process from the genesis of the design through construction through choosing the furniture. Since then architecture/architects have been getting diluted. The contractor actually has more power in terms of how things actually get built so there really isn't a strong design style.
Also it's clean, simple with strong lines. So appeals to a majority of people.

It can never take over the design process. But it's helping to document existing buildings to helping creating drawings to helping generate forms.

It's not on the market.
Is there a way to possibly obtain the architectural blueprints, through the city perhaps, in an effort to recreate the home in a new build?

It's recently been renovated, very nicely, the original architect was

In response to Reply # 41


  

          

Some jurisdictions have done a great job of keeping plans and documents but most haven't especially from around that time. The best way especially if the architect is known or is still in business they might have records. It never hurts to ask, some will have a city records department or utilize the historical society to get more information. Unfortunately you will need to put in some work to get it but it will be worth it.

It's a perfect house...the location--and that kind of hidden driveway to turn off of South Dakota--is probably why it didn't sell for double the price.

In response to Reply # 46
Tue Jan-05-21 04:16 PM by FLUIDJ

  

          

projects (private side business) and the majority of the projects on my day job have a dedicated BIM specification and requirement for implementation in the design process and we're moving towards the GC's that are awarded the final construction contract to also have a dedicated BIM team through the construction phase.

BIM reminds me of the transition from pencil & paper design to CAD...it took DECADES before CAD became the norm.... and we're only at the tip of BIM becoming the norm...

For instance...when I interned with a small firm in college (1995 - 1999) the owner was super ANTI CAD....like...he'd get angry for even mentioning it. So I spent the majority of my time there doing drawings on velum with pencil & inking with rapidographs and then running blueprints...this was already considered to be a somewhat "old school" work flow even in the late 90s'.... mind you..I'd learned AutoCAD in HIGH SCHOOL...so it was kinda weird reverting back to drawing by hand...but I'm glad I did...
Fast Forward to early 2000's and there were STILL major firms that only used AutoCAD as a "tool" in the process but not the primary way to execute a project.... Autodesk was already experimenting with parametric in their software and Revit was a small startup....
Fast Forward again....Autodesk buys Revit and starts ramping up BIM workflow along with a lot of other companies in the mix and forming what BIM is and should be......
Meanwhile...there are a LOT of firms JUST NOW...learning what BIM even is...

So with that said...if you're interested in BIM...now is the time to get on board....

It's still very rare in residential design though.... I think there's a TON of potential on the residential side...

In response to Reply # 0

Any ideas on places to find cool designs for that type of build.

Will probably be a 4 bedroom 2 story house for my family with two master suites (1 on each floor - 1st floor space for in-laws) and a 2-bedroom single level spot for my parents.

I've seen one with two houses connected by a 3 car garage and hallway but have been looking for other options.

As my parents get older and want to be closer to me (and most importantly their grandchildren), this seems like the right move.
