Let the eraser flow

       Drawing with a pen or pencil implies an idea exists and one is manifesting it on paper.  Subtractive "drawing" is a great technique to create space without having a preconceived idea of the form.  Below are photos of my conceptual subtractive section of my studio project, a center for sleep disorders.  The act of erasing creates a nice after effect on the paper and helps flush out spatial ideas and building circulation.

Detail Section

         In studio this week we were asked to produce accurate section details that also convey an idea of the spatial occupation.  The images below show the main corridor to the sleep institution and the occupants sleeping quarters.  These quick sections details were a combination of technical hand drawings, Autocad drawings, and textured images combined in photoshop.
