Tech- Final Board

Our final board got very good reviews from a number of professors. Jason made it very clear that he wanted drawing to be an important part of the quarter and not just a secondary counterpart to the model. A motivation for the drawings and board layout was also the starting point of the quarter, the botanical illustrations of Arthur Harry Church and his working sketches. From his layouts based on localities and organic growth as well as his use of shifting scales and base units of measure driving entire content- we developed our drawings exclusively with linework showcasing the linear transition of the form through multiple cross-sections. To capture the affect of the work- we employed color to the line drawings- using older techniques of drafting infused with colors through manipulation in autocad and illustrator.
