Creating a Drawing Series for an Urban Corridor

This quick turnaround visualization project originated as my firm studioINSITE was interviewing for a streetscape project in Denver. The Colfax Corridor is a historic street close to downtown that includes a variety of iconic theaters, restaurants, small shops, beautiful architecture flanked by established Capitol Hill residential neighborhoods. I chose to develop a series of six “before and after” sketches, each based on digital photographs that I took with my iPhone during a walking tour of the twenty block long study area. Each drawing represented a different design approach to address topics such as opening up blank walls to the street,...

Visualizing an Urban Master Plan with SketchUp

This very exciting master planning project really challenged my creative visualization skills by incorporating plan graphics, SketchUp modeling, traditional imagination drawing, hybrid composite drawing, overlay and trace, plus digital editing. You might say I “ threw the book at this one”!

Knowing it was a competition with a lot of pro bono time investment, I did my best to work efficiently and create drawings with just enough detail to understand our design intent,...

Quick Streetscape Sketch from a Photograph

I’m often asked to create a conceptual “what if” sketch that could be added to a presentation or a proposal for a new project. My office recently submitted a proposal for streetscape improvements in a Denver industrial neighborhood and for the document, I created a quick “before and after” sketch of a typical block in order to help inspire the client and select our firm for the project. Here is an explanation of my process: Digital Photograph. I drove around several streets in this warehouse district and found a late afternoon sunlit building that would be ideal for repurposing into...

Thanks Tim and Cynthia. Next webinar will really get into strategic thinking about perspectives and drawing composition - my favorites! I'll cook up some more video clips and hopefully control the camera focus a bit more than in last night's program.
