Drawings are abstract, models are abstract, and a view of a 3D
the digital model is abstract. Using the original series of drawings/
studies/abstractions of Michael Graves Portland Building,
redraw and model conditions from the sketches in digital
software, create a “Montage” relief model. The project explores
façade details through a set of “projection sequences” of both
model and image data. As a graphical component, the final
execution proposes an “envelope” condition that shelters the
activities of a hotel. The cast of light creates the illusion of a city
at night within the interior space of the hotel, while reinforcing
the programmatic connections.
