"Flair is a primitive kind of style. It is innate and cannot be taught.It can be polished and refined. When a person has flair, a grounding in the principle of design, and self-discipline, that person has the potential of being an outstanding designer."

{(STUDIO IV) (corporate design)}

This semester, I am taking Studio IV and it's focus is on corporate design. Our project was to relocate United Way's corporate office from Alexandria, VA to the 191 Peachtree Tower in Atlanta, GA. The whole space was to be open office systems and we were not aloud to have any architectural stud walls in the building except for the existing ones, and walls for the reception. Well it was a group projects and here are our boards. The first 3 I did, and the last 3 one of my group members Ruth did. So basically this is a small look into what has taken over my life this past semester. Enjoy!
