A photographic and sketch observation of windows and their surroundings in Blacksburg, Virginia. There was a focus on the materiality and weathering of the windows.

Sketches

Sketches are a tool to break down space, understand construction, and determine patterns. In this semester long independent study I used sketching to learn about how windows separate space and how they interacted with the facade and building.

 

Windows can be small, embedded in a thick wall, representing the type of wall structure. They can be large and vast, crossing the boundary between aperture and wall.
