These five works are ones that were not only some of the most challenging, but also some of the most rewarding, and are landmarks in my own personal development throughout the academic year. As I look back through these in chronological order, I see one of my ‘welly elevations’. Although the idea of orthographic projection now seems easy and obvious to me, drawing a collection of items with no perspective took me a while to understand. My second and third images are both models that gave me great feelings of reward, as I spent so long constructing them both. My fourth image shows my first venture into CAD and laser cutting, a project and task that was incredibly fun for me as I could explore a new, very precise method of drawing. The final form of the work is inspired by ideas of column and surface exhibited by Peter and Alison Smithson. My final drawing on display is the result of a whole semester focused on a single design. A plan oblique at 1:50 scale, this drawing is of a design to be installed onto an existing building, with the intention of elevating a user above the roof of the building. As I look back on the year, my biggest lessons have been not only in technical methods in drawing and making, but also the importance of design iteration, and allowing myself the freedom to be creative.
