The education of a designer/architect during the “tween” years of internship is often full of rendering, graphic representation and web management rather than construction detailing and learning craft. The Construction in Detail Vignette Series hopes to fill the void by exploring building construction and assemblies in axonometric form, while using a graphic background to also challenge conventional communication missing in most architectural practices.
As explorations, these studies are inherently flawed to some degree and are a point of departure for future practice rather than for actual construction.
The creative studio Designbelt is more than just coloring books and critique. The work generated that follows attempts to infuse a playful attitude at every scale and are the precursor to the studio’s rich body of work that lies ahead.
The Tall Ships Erie Coloring Book is now available for purchase at the Designbelt Bookstore for $5.00. The book highlights ships visiting the cIty of Erie to celebrate the bicentennial of the Battle of Lake Erie, as well as describes the anatomy of a tall ship from bow to stern.
