Architecture Begins with the Square

Origins by Jeannye
Original by Jeannye

As a Project Architect at Stanley, Beaman, Sears, I enjoy the art of drawing, math and architecture. With each project I search for ways explore creativity and complexity. While recently listening to the Keynote Address by Sir Norman Foster for the Advances in Architectural Geometry 2016, I was thrilled to hear the continued dialogue on importance of the PENCIL. I was motivated to revisit my portfolio of drawings and just recall why I simply love, DRAWING!. It is my way to escape into a world of imagination and unlimited possibilities. With each line + mark, I envision a physical reality for the details and wonder what mathematical methods or technological tool will bring these graphite etchings into our present spatial boundaries.
