Title: Courthouse Steps Variation: Block of What You’re After. References: Public utilities, public transportation, public art, and a bushel of oranges.
Project description: The blocks use the rich but overshadowed history of textiles, and quilting in particular, as a framework to compose texture maps of conspicuous objects. They are diagrams following patterns with long histories, assembled with content research that focuses on the micro-collections at play in architectural practice: the reference frameworks of existing histories and theories operating for the architect, and the reference vernacular of objects surrounding the architect.

Title: Nine-Patch Block from Julia Morgan. References: Add-on aggregation, wrap-around approach, brick stair. Quick walk to the back door.
