WELCOME TO MY 2021 IN-DEPTH PROJECT!
This year my goal for In-Depth was to learn the ins and outs of architectural rendering as well as acquire a basic understanding of constructive components. My mentor, Murray MacKinnon has kindly taken time to guide me through this project and I am extremely grateful for his technical insights and help.
My project is centred around designing, drawing, and rendering an original two story family home inspired by ‘green building’. Below, I will take you through the process step by step to demonstrate my learning…. ENJOY!
p.s. if you have any questions/comments please put them down below! I’d love to answer some!
