These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Still rendering...

My teacher called. I explained the problem and he apologized profusely, saying he didn't even think about the scale problem. He says he will email the class tonight to tell them whatever solution they come up with is fine. I told him I had emailed him all the CAD plans, but was submitting in 1/8" scale. He suggested a fold-out. I said "No, you don't understand. I'd have to fold out in *four* directions-- this needs an 18"x24" Arch. sheet to do at 1/4". THEN he understood it. :)

He says my solution is fine. Carry on.

You can't see the big white pompom on my hat in this photo. That makes me sad.

He didn't have a lot of choice, once I explained just HOW much bigger the paper was going to have to be.

Thanks. I am really worried it's not going to be done in time. There's still so much left....

Glad your problem got solved :) I was going to suggest printing it in four sheets, parts a-d at the scale where you could see the detail, but that's unnecessary. Well done.

Thinking of you. Hope it goes without any more hitches.

Euphro: Even hitch-free, I don't think it's gonna make it. But I'm gonna keep going anyway. I just finished rendering the third floor plan, about to render out the last one now.

Joe: I figured you'd like that hat. I should send one to you-- be first on your block!
