This week has been a good time for me to unwind since returning from Europe. I forgot to mention, I was sick pretty much the entire trip. I had a sore throat that I thought was strep, a tooth ache, runny nose, and the start to a double ear infection. I was taking pain meds the whole time, and I kept thinking that as soon as I got back to the states, all of my illnesses would catch up and go full-blown on me. And they did. I had a fever the other night and in general have been exhausted. Trying to get back on schedule has been a little rough, too. I usually wake up at 3 in the morning either bright-eyed and ready to go or absolutely starving. I am so happy to not have any responsibilities right now so that I can just be resting!
But, of course I don’t just sit around. I get a bit antsy so I find things to do. I have been cleaning off my computer and re-organizing my files, especially my projects from school. I remembered that I never shared my most recent studio project of the sustainable/local restaurant, so here are a few renderings I did as well as the lighting model I built to study the wood forms I designed.

This project was just submitted for an international competition, and it sounds like there a ton of participants, so I’m not getting my hopes up! I definitely struggled through designing a restaurant for the first time, but some of the concepts I explored were really interesting (sustainable design, local and regional food, trends in food, “the barn,” lighting and repetition, materials, etc.). I can’t believe it is my last project as a student in school! Now, onward to job hunting! (And a clean computer).
