Being an architect. What's it like? | 'A Choice to Make' - Short Film
 
08:35
A short film about being an architect and my struggle to pursue a more creative life. This story is your story too because these are challenges we all face. How do we make the most of our short time here? How do we ensure we’re doing the work that makes us most happy? How do we reconcile our need to feel necessary, useful, and creative with the financial reality of making a life, supporting ourselves and our families? Four years ago, I made the decision to part ways with the traditional practice of architecture in search of something more rewarding. I left behind a salary and good friends. I left a job that supported my family but left me creatively unfulfilled. Without a long client list or a rolodex full of contacts, and no familial connections to funnel work my way I began experimenting. I did anything and everything I could to feed my creative intellect. I made things, each and every day. Most of what I made failed, but I took note of the ones that didn't and learned from them. I persisted and kept making. I continued to reevaluate what being an architect might look like; what it meant to me. I found the traditional definition of practice stifling. I wasn’t content doing only one thing. Of course, I loved architecture deeply, but I also wanted to pursue writing and photography, video editing and sketching, model making and paper cutting, book publishing, marketing and interior design. As my definition of what being an architect meant expanded to include all these things I discovered this deep well of creative freedom that traditional practice – for me - had been lacking. Is my path the right one for everyone? Of course not. Is this expanded definition of a creative life perfect or unfailing? Hardly. But, experimenting has brought me closer than ever to my childhood vision of what a fulfilling life might look like. Each day is a new experiment in making. And this short film? That's an experiment too. I made it with you in mind. To empower you to go find the things that make you feel most alive, most fulfilled, the things that bring you happiness. This channel is possible because of you – my friends and viewers. I hope you’ll share your story in the comments below and together we can broaden the definition of what it means to live a fulfilling, creative life.

Architectural Model Making Tips + Tricks - An Architect's Guide (Part 1)
 
07:06
An inside look at architecture models and part one in a how-to guide for building your own scale models. Part one of this model making guide gives an overview of the types of models architects, intern architects and architecture students build and two tips for planning your next modeling project. For detailed information on the models shown in the video, follow my Pinterest board: https://www.pinterest.com/ericreinholdt/model-making/ Model types discussed: - Study models + parti models - Presentation - Daylighting - Detail - Material Each video in the series conveys both macro and (at least one) micro concept along to help you as you design and build your architecture models. Macro concept: Define the model's purpose. The first step, one you take before building a model is to determine its purpose. Micro concept: Use your models to narrate a story. I use models to tell a story and speak for me when I'm not presenting. To do this I use scale figures in motion, add furniture and interior objects, lighting, and other entourage. A narrative model can be a useful design tool too, revealing possibilities not previously explored. In the next video I'll discuss model making materials, tips for cutting and shortcuts I use in the construction of models. // GEAR I USE // DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 70D: http://amzn.to/29klz7k LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

Why THIS is so important for Architects (+ Students)
 
03:09
All creatives share similar struggles; in this video I discuss the challenges I've faced as an architect and the strategies I use to overcome them. Viewed through the lens of a project currently in design, this is a short musing on the importance of making things, on scheduling creativity and why cultivating uncertainty is so vitally important to your success (and happiness). Anyone who relies on creativity to support themselves has fears: about the blank page, of being able to summon fresh ideas…of doing something interesting…something unexpected. I worry about the critics…whether that’s other professionals, my client’s, my parents…you - my audience. Of course I’m challenged by all the practical things too…of supporting my family, the worry of finding new projects, of meeting expectations, and of living up to my own artistic goals. I have a very simple strategy for handling these struggles. If you want to learn more about my process for making, check this page on my website for my precise formula: http://thirtybyforty.com/architects-schedule-for-making Thanks for watching, I do hope you enjoyed this short interlude; it was a real creative reflection for me; I had fun making it.

Learning to See Like an Architect
 
03:58
As architects our job is to uncover what’s hidden: in a place, in our clients, in the materials we use. Our work makes these latent features visible, audible, tangible; we give them a voice. To do this, we're taught to explore, analyze, consider, dissect, unearth and understand the deeper meanings of things quite often hidden in plain view. I think finding a muse is one of the best tools we can use to teach the kind of research required of us as we seek to become more thoughtful designers, stewards of the built world...architects. I also discuss one of my favorite architectural illustrators of all-time, David Macaulay and his theory on understanding the world around us. Tell me in the comments, what's your muse? // GEAR I USE // DRONE: *Mavic Pro by DJI: http://amzn.to/2hW3dTA DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 6DMKII http://thirtybyforty.com/6dmkii * Canon 80D: http://amzn.to/2fBWGMQ LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI * Canon 10 - 18mm f4.5 - 5.6 IS Lens: http://amzn.to/2vyErvS * Canon 24-70mm f2.8L Lens: http://amzn.to/2DMt0Y5 MUSIC I USE: * http://thirtybyforty.com/music AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Copic Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/copic-sketch * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap CAD DRAWING TEMPLATE: * Download here: http://thirtybyforty.com/autocad-template STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

What to do AFTER Architecture School (Advice for Graduates)
 
03:35
Advice for architecture students and young professionals. What to do after architecture school, what to expect, and how uncertainty is an integral part of the creative life. In this video, I share excerpts from a conversation I had with Maleick, a 22-year old architecture student from Baltimore. He’s preparing to graduate architecture school this spring, making plans, weighing his options and struggling with the anxiety of not knowing what’s next. Twenty-two years ago, I stood where Maleick and many of you stand today, entering the profession with the same concerns, the same worries. Today, twenty-two years later, I’m no longer an architect. Yes, I have the degree and the license and buildings I’ve designed but the profession I stepped into back then no longer exists. Today I’m a photographer, a graphic designer, a marketer, a filmmaker, a writer, a negotiator, an editor, a curator, and a creator. There are no more architects in the singular sense of the word. Practice today is anything and everything you design it to be. I’m all these things because I chose optionality over specificity. I want to do more things in life than architecture. I want to make videos, I want to design hardware and t-shirts, I want to print letterpress cards and pursue aerial photography. I have a thousand interests. Adopting the creator’s mindset has allowed me to develop skills that serve a variety of outcomes, and has led me to a most rewarding professional life, full of opportunity. Special thanks to Maleick for the footage he contributed, he has a YouTube channel you should check it out: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO5WZpf4iKvzK2fW8ozxQcA Music: Wonder by Tristan Barton ( get it here: * http://thirtybyforty.com/music ) **New** Merch: https://thirtybyforty.com/merch // GEAR I USE // DRONE: *Mavic Pro by DJI: http://amzn.to/2hW3dTA DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 6DMKII http://thirtybyforty.com/6dmkii * Canon 80D: http://amzn.to/2fBWGMQ LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI * Canon 10 - 18mm f4.5 - 5.6 IS Lens: http://amzn.to/2vyErvS * Canon 24-70mm f2.8L Lens: http://amzn.to/2DMt0Y5 MUSIC I USE: * http://thirtybyforty.com/music AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Copic Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/copic-sketch-grays * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap CAD DRAWING TEMPLATE: * Download here: http://thirtybyforty.com/autocad-template STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

Viewer Question: Quitting architecture if I can't find a client. What should I do?
 
08:16
Every new business faces this challenge: how to find a client willing to trust a young professional. This week I'm answering a viewer question from Kristian in the UK who is considering quitting architecture; he has all the requisite skills but no one is hiring his firm. I break down the essentials of marketing and offer a simple methodology for determining where architecture clients are spending their time. Hint: chances are you have one of these devices within arms reach most of the time. Marketing is your only game when you’re establishing your business. If you don’t have projects to work on it’s because your marketing plan isn’t working...yet. Marketing is simply: getting in front of people who are buying and selling them the things you make. Markets are agnostic, they don’t care if you’re the most talented designer in the world, or if you have a family to feed, or if you’re in debt or struggling to keep the lights on, or if you’re about to quit the profession you love if they don’t buy from you. They simply don’t care. Markets care only about one thing: about you solving their problem. Build a product that solves a problem and sell it to the market. If a market isn’t buying your solution, you’re either: not solving an urgent enough problem or you’re not getting in front of your target audience. Kristian also says, “I have a few social media accounts but they haven’t drawn very much attention.” And, to that I would ask, “What are you doing to capture people’s attention?” Are you making cool stuff? Are you sharing things to educate or help others? People don’t just pay attention because you share a link on Facebook, organic reach is way down on all social media platforms, which is why you have to build an audience and cultivate a relationship with them for social media to work. Social is the key to social media, right? I talk about the different ways you can build an audience in volume 2 of Architect + Entrepreneur. I offer a few ideas on how to crack the social media nut to get you started. 1) Prove your expertise; share your knowledge. 2) Do some spec work, design something. 3) Teach someone something. 4) Piggyback on someone else’s social media account more popular than you. 5) Reach out, make connections; offer to help. Simply having a social media account and posting once a week doesn’t solve someone’s problem. That’s not a marketing plan. So what is? Well, to market to someone, first you need to know whom you’re targeting: your target demographic, what do they carry in their pockets, where do they shop, where do they recreate, where do they hang out online and in real life. Next, find five to ten of these people in your target market; in real life, not online. Now, ask each one to open up their smart phone and ask to look at their home screen. This is where their attention is. When we have downtime, what’s the first thing we pick up? Our phones. Like it or not, this device has earned our complete attention. We sleep with them on our bed stands, our phones comfort us when we’re alone, sing to us, connect us to the Internet, and deliver our email; and this is where your opportunity lies. What apps get the best real estate on the home screen? Look at your own phone. What apps are you using most of the time? Marketing and forging social connections is hard work though and I know, everyone wants the easy solution: buy some likes, buy clicks, a magazine ad, a billboard…whatever. If you’re not ready to invest in the hard work that’s fine. Entrepreneurship isn’t for everyone. It’s a really fashionable thing to be an entrepreneur right now, to own your own business, to control your time; but the reality is, entrepreneurship isn’t going to be right for everyone. That’s okay too. You might actually be happiest working for someone else. That’s not a failure if it makes you happy is it? I don’t think so. Please share your thoughts and advice for Kristian in the comments. // GEAR I USE // DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 70D: http://amzn.to/29klz7k LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

Architectural Design Process | Form, Orientation and Sunlight
 
09:54
Learn how you can use sunlight to locate, orient, shape, and inspire the details for your architectural design. In this video, I walk you through the design process for a project whose form, orientation, and details were all developed by carefully analyzing the solar path on the building site. In addition, I discuss: - how to read a solar chart (and where to download one) - what app I prefer to use for solar planning - passive heating and cooling - daylighting concepts - alternate ways to use the sun - solar aspect, solar noon, azimuth, and altitude - how to design for competing site agendas Resources mentioned: **White pen I'm using (affiliate): http://thirtybyforty.com/signo **Get it Right with Amelia Lee - The Undercover Architect** (podcast) https://undercoverarchitect.com/podcast/ **Solar charts** http://solardat.uoregon.edu/PolarSunChartProgram.html https://www.gaisma.com/ https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/@4957320 **Sunseeker app** https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sun-seeker/ // GEAR I USE // DRONE: *Mavic Pro by DJI: http://amzn.to/2hW3dTA DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 80D: http://amzn.to/2fBWGMQ LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI * Canon 10 - 18mm f4.5 - 5.6 IS Lens: http://amzn.to/2vyErvS AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

Architecture Photography Tips
 
11:22
Tips to improve your architectural photography. You'll learn the stylistic and technical fundamentals to help you take better photographs of architecture whether it's your own work, or someone else's. In this video I share with you some of the amateur mistakes I made when I was first starting out so you can avoid them in your work. Photography is an essential meta skill I think every creative needs in their toolkit, it teaches you about light, composition, texture, color and narrative and it will help you document your surroundings, your design projects and your travels in a more professional style. The seven tips I discuss are: 1) Keystoning + how to correct it 2) White balance + style 3) Using a tripod + why you need one 4) Lenses: the best ones for architecture 5) Details 6) Light + how to make best use of it 7) Decluttering See the links below for for the gear I'm using. // GEAR I USE // DRONE: *Mavic Pro by DJI: http://amzn.to/2hW3dTA DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 6DMKII http://thirtybyforty.com/6dmkii * Canon 80D: http://amzn.to/2fBWGMQ LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI * Canon 10 - 18mm f4.5 - 5.6 IS Lens: http://amzn.to/2vyErvS * Canon 24-70mm f2.8L Lens: http://amzn.to/2DMt0Y5 * Canon 16-35mm f4L IS Lens: https://amzn.to/2Emj9Ev MUSIC I USE: * http://thirtybyforty.com/music AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Copic Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/copic-sketch * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap CAD DRAWING TEMPLATE: * Download here: http://thirtybyforty.com/autocad-template STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

Sketch like an Architect (Techniques + Tips from a Real Project)
 
08:09
Follow along as I work through a few rough sketches for a new project; I discuss the key style points and techniques you can use to develop your own architectural sketching style. Each sketching vignette includes many tips, but broadly they fall under the following headings: 1) Simply your toolset: fewer tools = fewer decisions 2) Start small: move quickly, be less precise, less precious 3) Line work: architectural sketching is a line art, not a fine art 4) Annotations: helps create a layered esthetic, describes things you're not able to easily show 5) Media + Implements: how changing these from time to time can spur new ideas. 6) Practice: the one thing guaranteed to improve your architectural sketching technique. **Here's the link to GET INVOLVED in my NEW PROJECT: http://thirtybyforty.com/new-project // GEAR I USE // CAD DRAWING TEMPLATE: * Download here: http://thirtybyforty.com/autocad-template ARCHITECT'S TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL ARCHITECTURE ESSENTIAL TOOLS: * http://thirtybyforty.com/archi-gear PHOTOGRAPHY GEAR: *http://thirtybyforty.com/my-photo-gear MUSIC I USE: * http://thirtybyforty.com/music #architecture #architect #architecturetutorial -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

100K (Silver Play Button) + A Thank You
 
03:19
A sincere thank you for helping to push our channel past the 100K subscriber milestone. I just received the Silver Play Button award at the studio (!) and wanted to take a minute to unbox it and offer you a personal note of thanks. Without all of you, none of this would be possible. Sort of funny that the week it arrived on my doorstep the channel crossed the 186K(!!) subscriber mark. I'm so humbled by the support and kindness you've shown as I've worked over the past five years to make better things, more interesting content, and exponentially increase the number of people I'm able to reach + connect with. I never thought I’d get this award, it’s certainly not something I set out to achieve. To think that 100,000 people thought enough about what I had to say to subscribe is just a completely silly notion (especially when I look back at some of the things I’ve made in the past). In the beginning, I focused on sharing knowledge and documenting what I was creating. As time went on, I started to have higher expectations of my work; I became interested in filmmaking, composition, color grading, audio, and storytelling. I think I make a lot better things than I used to, but I'm nowhere near as good as my heroes or as I want to be. And, I know when I look back on this in another year’s time I’ll see what I made today wasn’t that great either. However, without a body of work to look back on, I’d have no context to see the journey. It's important to remember that we can’t possibly make our best work the first time we publish something, it takes practice, discipline and the knowledge that most of what we make won’t live up to our own high standards. In time we get better. This is my 196th video that I've upload to YouTube...that's a lot of practice! I hope this inspires you to take action and to make things. See my path and take comfort in the fact that I just press 'publish' - even when I wasn't capable of executing at my own high standards. Pressing publish is the only way to improve.

Draw like an Architect - Essential Tips
 
11:52
In this video I share my tips for improving your architectural drawing technique. I'll walk you through a detail sketch, a basic section sketch and then transition into a few of my CAD working drawings to illustrate how a simple toolset can produce a range of drawings. Important concepts discussed: - Lineweight (and the pens I use) - Atmospheric perspective - Drawing technique - Corners - Iteration - Foreground, middle-ground, and background - The 'squint' test - Shade + shadow - Entourage (http://www.mrcutout.com/ , http://skalgubbar.se/ , http://pimpmydrawing.com/ ) In the end, it’s not about copying my drawing style or anyone else’s. It’s about developing your own and the best way to do that is by seeking out the architectural drawings you like and try and duplicate their results. Study their commonalities, how do they differ from the way you draw? Some of my favorites are found in the Detail in Contemporary Residential architecture books or Detail magazines…all the German stuff. // GEAR I USE // DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 70D: http://amzn.to/29klz7k LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

One Book EVERY Designer Should Own
 
03:05
A review of one of my all-time favorite books; one I think every designer should own. Part review and part personal reflection, it's a continuation of my previous video on goal setting. As I struggled with my traditional goal setting exercise this year, I stumbled on a new methodology and consulted this formative book in my library about the life and work of Dieter Rams for guidance. It's a book I think should be in every designer's collection and in this video I share how it's shaped my architecture practice and my approach to life. I view books as the raw materials of creativity. Looking at and learning from the work of others is crucial to the development of your personal style and I encourage sampling from every possible source you can: graphic designers, authors, engineers, sculptors, every field relies on some measure of creativity. The deeper your understanding of what’s out there the more source material you have to draw upon and the more things you can smash together to craft your own style. Dieter Rams designed more than 500 products over his forty-two-year career at Braun; he’s regarded as one of the most influential industrial designers of the 20th century yet the path that led him there was anything but premeditated. The happenstance of it is as empowering as it is unsettling. This volume explains the history and events that shaped his personal esthetic. Be sure to add this book to your library for context, depth and to understand the true measure of Herr Rams' contribution to the design world. Study it, not to replicate his style (you don’t want to look like him) but to see like him. And a special thanks to my grandfather, whose counsel I miss each day, but who will always live on in my studio and work. // GEAR I USE // DRONE: *Mavic Pro by DJI: http://amzn.to/2hW3dTA DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 6DMKII http://thirtybyforty.com/6dmkii * Canon 80D: http://amzn.to/2fBWGMQ LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI * Canon 10 - 18mm f4.5 - 5.6 IS Lens: http://amzn.to/2vyErvS * Canon 24-70mm f2.8L Lens: http://amzn.to/2DMt0Y5 MUSIC I USE: * http://thirtybyforty.com/music AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Copic Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/copic-sketch * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap CAD DRAWING TEMPLATE: * Download here: http://thirtybyforty.com/autocad-template STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

How to Find Architectural Ideas

Eight strategies I use to find architectural ideas. Do you find the blank page as terrifying as I do? I'm starting a new project and I thought I'd use this video to talk about how I deal with this and precisely how I search for new ideas for my architecture. I discuss in detail: - Bisociation - Trusting the design process - Embracing constraints - Inventing deadlines - Doing the opposite (anti-project) - Subtracting to solve - Stealing (like an artist) These are just a few of the design hacks I use to help grease the creative wheels and instill the confidence I need to keep moving forward. What's great is these techniques work for a whole host of disciplines and creative fields, it isn't exclusive to architecture.

Simplicity. An architectural manifesto.
 
02:31
A short musing on simplicity; illustrated with residential architecture. Simplicity builds no more than necessary. Simplicity makes room for living rather than things. Simplicity is rational. Simplicity values craft... and material. Simplicity rejects excess. Simplicity invites reflection. Simplicity appears effortless. Simplicity is efficient. Simplicity lends small gestures... great importance. Simplicity is assured... and comfortable. Simplicity welcomes light as an equal partner. Simplicity connects us to place. Simplicity is sustainable. Simplicity is affordable... and subtle. Simplicity isn't boring... or unadorned. Simplicity defers. Simplicity evokes home... and the complexity of life. Simplicity says much with little. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice? The Undercover Architect Part 2" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=242zhcF0b5A -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

In this video I review the the accessory dwelling unit (ADU) which is an additional, self-contained home located either within or adjacent to an existing house. They're also known as in-law units, granny flats, multigenerational homes, and laneway houses. These offer a compelling solution to the problem of suburban sprawl and are an excellent means of increasing the utilization of existing municipal infrastructure. I discuss the permitting procedures, restrictions, and general planning framework for the ADU.

Setting Goals Not Working? Try this (for Architects + Students)
 
05:36
My annual goal setting practice wasn't working, so I replaced it with just four simple questions. Inspired by Milton Glaser’s academic exercise of imaging one’s ideal day I’ve replaced my yearly goal setting practice with an intentional focus on habits and skills. Repeated daily practice over the course of a year optimizes for happiness and consistent results rather than vanity metrics and perfection. Replacing a long list of goals frees me to do one thing well, rather than dividing my attention amongst many and doing each of those poorly. The four questions I'm asking are: 1 - What do I default to doing (what makes me most happy)? 2 - What feels like "work" (what makes me unhappy)? 3 - How can I do more of what makes me happy and less of what doesn't (what systems can I put in place to help me)? 4 - How can I put myself in a position to fail more? This is all an experiment. But it’s a necessary pivot for me as I search for a more effective way to achieve the things I want to over time. I still have goals and ambitions, but it's crucial that as I strive to achieve things, the journey must satisfy my definition of success: freedom, purpose and relationships. A goal reached without also fulfilling these metrics – in my eyes – is meaningless. Tell me in the comments, what do you do? Do you set annual personal and business goals for yourself? **A special thanks to all of YOU for helping the channel cross the 100K subs mark.

Be an Amateur (Architect)

Learning from the life and work of Charles and Ray Eames, I discuss why it's important to approach problems with the mind of an amateur. The Eameses believed in never delegating understanding and that one must learn by doing. It's this ethos of experimentation and the use of various media types for artistic expression that's fueling my architecture practice today. And, it's positively effecting how many people I'm able to reach and impact in the world. You'll learn how I've applied the amateur strategy to release my first film and to make better architecture. ***I'm also proud to announce that my short film: A Choice to Make was selected to be screened at the 9th annual Architecture and Design Film Festival held in NYC (adfilmfest.com) on November 1st through 5th of 2017.

How to Borrow Natural Light - An Architect's Strategy Guide
 
07:26
In this video I discuss natural daylighting strategies anyone can take advantage of. I begin with a short history lesson which describes how daylighting actually shaped the largest of cities in the US. In 1915 the 38-story Equitable Building in New York City was the largest office building in the world. Containing 1.2 million square feet of office space, it consumed nearly every available square foot of its diminutive lot and cast an equally large shadow on its neighborhood in lower Manhattan. Its construction inspired the enactment of the city’s 1916 Zoning Resolution, which was designed to preserve access to light and air at the street level. The resolution prescribed specific limitations for a building’s envelope — its outer walls — and would go on to shape the stepped forms that you see today on many of the iconic towers in the city. This underscores the importance that access to daylight had in shaping even the largest of cities, the individual buildings that make up those cities and, more broadly, sensible building design. With an increasing focus on sustainable design practices, the smart use of natural daylight in our homes is no longer a luxury — it has become a necessity. At the heart of any good daylighting strategy is a concept of “borrowed” light: the capture of light falling on the exterior of a home and transporting it to the spaces where it’s needed. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

(Architecture) Conferences. Why Bother?

Learn why I resisted going to conferences for so long and why my trip to the 2018 AIA National Conference in New York City changed my mind. This is a short call-to-action on why I think conferences should be a part of everyone's professional diet. I've just returned from the 2018 AIA national convention held in New York City which hosted some 26,000 other architects. I was surprised to discover how much I really enjoyed it. If you're an introvert - like me - it’s easy to avoid large groups of people, but even introverts need to network with others and to hear new ideas. I've learned time and again that whenever I'm able to step outside my comfort zone, great things happen and this experience didn't disappoint. I met viewers of this channel, students, interns, and architects from all around the world of all ages. A few of the things I came away with: +New ideas + inspiration +Larger network of connections + contacts +Deeper connection + appreciation of NYC +Behind the scenes info. on buildings & systems +Cutting-edge information via seminars + thought-leaders +New product info. +Some really amazing food +Chance to meet & collaborate with IRL an amazing friend and mentor from down under.

Even with so many digital tools that are faster and more accurate and easier to change, I still build physical scale models of my architecture. I treat building models as a form of three-dimensional sketching. The act of making and manipulating things with your hands has been scientifically shown to produce more efficient, more creative, and more insightful solutions to problems. Physical feedback from our physical environment benefits our creative performance. Making models allows me to: - Step away from the distractions of an all digital environment - Sketch in three-dimensions - Have a tangible product to engage with and show the client - Unearth new ideas. Deliberate vs. unexpected or unplanned design revelations provide insights I can't find any other way - Models are teaching tools of real-world physics - They allow for metacognition: thinking about how you're thinking about a problem. At its heart, architecture is about making and I hope this inspires you to go and make (great) things!

MODERN PRACTICE SERIES (EP1): Eponymous Architecture (NEW SERIES)
 
16:01
In this new series, I’m visiting architects and design professionals asking them to share the choices, challenges, failures, successes and failures that have shaped their careers. Too often we hear from only those architects elevated by the media to superstar status. These so-called 'starchitects' account for a small percentage of design professionals. And, the stories from the bulk of our ranks - a great many talented architects and designers – remain untold. This series gives voice to their stories. We uncover early inspirations that led them to choose architecture, experiences in architecture school, internships, what firm typologies to look for, advice for taking the Architectural Registration Exams (ARE), how to find work and clients, working for and with others, networking and struggles building a business. In the inaugural video of the series we meet John Clappi, a licensed architect living and working in Brooklyn, New York. He has more than 20 years’ experience practicing architecture in both Boston and New York City at a variety of scales from large developments to award winning Record Houses and private residences. He’s worked for two starchitects: Richard Meier of Richard Meier and Partners and Brad Cloepfil at Allied Works, both high-end, boutique design firms. In part 1 he recounts the school years and his early career pivot points as well as his experience working for Meier and Allied Works and time working on large scale developer projects in New York City. In part 2, we’ll discover why he set out on his own, how he secured his first commissions and the challenges he’s facing as he builds out a larger vision for his nascent architecture studio: Eponymous Architecture, PLLC. It’s a rare and candid look into the struggles designers and architects face as we seek to become licensed professionals and to find a life of true, creative fulfillment.

Frank Gehry Masterclass Review

An architect's review of the Frank Gehry Masterclass: what to expect, what you’ll get, who I think it’s for, my favorite lessons, and whether I think it’s worth taking. ***Enroll here: http://thirtybyforty.com/gehry-masterclass Gehry is a polarizing figure in the architecture world. You’ll either love or hate his work, rarely is there an in-between. This was actually one of the reasons I enrolled in the MasterClass, because I have a hard time with Gehry's work; it defies sensibility to me. So, I wanted a deeper understanding of his motivations. And of course there's the fact that this kind of personalized access to the mind and design process of a world-renowned architect is still a novel thing. Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to learn from this level of architect, a true master? I also wanted to cultivate the artist's mindset in my own work. Watch the video to see whether I think the course delivers on all that it promises. **Enrolling here helps support the channel: http://thirtybyforty.com/gehry-masterclass **Sketches of Frank Gehry (documentary): https://youtu.be/vYt2SQPqTh0 // GEAR I USE // DRONE: *Mavic Pro by DJI: http://amzn.to/2hW3dTA DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 80D: http://amzn.to/2fBWGMQ LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI * Canon 10 - 18mm f4.5 - 5.6 IS Lens: http://amzn.to/2vyErvS AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

A primer on best practices for architects (+ students) looking to boost their following + leverage on Instagram. More than just a host for your ad-hoc online portfolio, Instagram has become a place for architects and students to be discovered, to earn extra revenue, to find employment as well as new employees and a source for new commissions. Having used a personal account for years, I recently switched over to a business profile. In this video, I'll tell you why, show you who I'm following, and give you a quick primer on best Instagram practices. I discuss: - your grid and how to curate it - the most important part of your bio - stories and why you should be using them - hashtagging tips - who I'm following - how to monetize your profile - and the true value of your social reach... **Follow me on Instagram @30by40 (http://thirtybyforty.com/instagram) // GEAR I USE // DRONE: *Mavic Pro by DJI: http://amzn.to/2hW3dTA DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 80D: http://amzn.to/2fBWGMQ LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI * Canon 10 - 18mm f4.5 - 5.6 IS Lens: http://amzn.to/2vyErvS AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp MUSIC I USE: *http://thirtybyforty.com/music ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

Small Studio Project - Siding + Rainscreen details (Part 11)
 
06:22
In this video I discuss the exterior wall system describing how the design concept has been married with the technical solution. All exterior walls are divided between the interior conditioned space and the exterior unconditioned space by an air barrier. In our case, the air barrier is closed cell sprayed foam insulation. To either side of the air barrier the wall materials must be allowed to dry to ensure long-term durability. I discuss why we chose the materials we did and why the rainscreen wall assembly is best suited to our climate. Our wall assembly consists of: - Closed cell sprayed foam insulation - Stud framing - Ext. plywood sheathing - Water resistive barrier (WRB), 30# ASTM graded felt + Vaproshield at select building components - Cedar strapping (air space) - Hardipanel prefinished siding ripped to custom plank widths -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

How to rank on Houzz.com - Tips from a Pro - Video 1 of 4
 
07:12
For more pro tips please check out the Unofficial Guide to Houzz.com available on Amazon at: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NZJ39OW In this four-part video series, I walk you through a little about how I use Houzz.com in my business and through four strategies for standing out from the crowd. The first video describes the low-hanging fruit - profile completion. Marketing for architects and designers has changed significantly with the advent of Houzz.com. With its curated collection of high quality photographs and editorial content, Houzz.com is equal parts social media and marketing and it deserves a place in every home remodeling and design professional’s business marketing plan. The Problem? With its vast and ever-growing database of professional users and photographs it can be hard to stand out and be discovered by clients and Houzz editors. Ranking in your target market, especially if it’s crowded can be a real challenge. That is, until you understand how you can leverage Houzz to your advantage. The Solution Understanding the Houzz ecosystem and ranking criteria are key factors to being discovered. I've written a book which addresses the ecosystem and provides actionable advice for crafting a profile that connects with clients and editors alike. I discuss both basic and advanced strategies for appearing in more searches and for being showcased on Houzz.com's front page in their featured Ideabooks. Once you understand how the Houzz ecosystem works you can put it to work netting more qualified leads and ultimately more projects for your business. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

The Space Between - Grouped Structures (An Architectural Essay)
 
03:58
Connected, grouped building compounds can be found all over the world. In New England, where I practice, the connected farmstead or Big House/Little House/Back House/Barn typology evolved out of a need to create sheltered outdoor workspaces adjacent to the farmstead. The Big House contained living spaces, the Little House contained the kitchen, the Back House stored the carriage and all were connected to the Barn. Buildings were positioned to shield outdoor spaces from northerly winds and gather light from the south. In this video I discuss the advantages of deploying a compound structure design concept.

Viewer Question: Which skills and books will prepare me for architecture school?
 
12:25
A 15-year old viewer inquires about which skills he can develop now to prepare for architecture school. My answer - which has nothing to do with math or physics - might surprise you. We discuss both verbal and visual communication skills, problem solving, and my experience entering architecture school as a naive first-year student. The skills I recommend are all meta-skills, which are skills that serve a multiplicity of vocations and life paths. Toward the end of the video, I give a few book (and other) recommendations to best prepare the new architecture student for what lies ahead. Most architecture students don't become architects, and that's okay as the skills you’ll acquire will reward you in many different professions. Thanks to Casper for writing...best of luck to you as you prepare for whatever path you choose. // GEAR I USE // DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 70D: http://amzn.to/29klz7k LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

How a Site Can Shape a Home
 
05:09
Good design is the result of strong, simple concepts that give meaning to a home's shape, form and materials. When you look to your site for inspiration, these ideas often arise very naturally. A site is composed of many things: topography, plants, trees, regional and local climate, surrounding structures, water bodies and zoning and code regulations. Each site has very specific solar orientations, views (good and bad) and often a very explicit character. Each one of these areas is an opportunity to generate a meaningful conceptual approach for your home design — a way to devise its shape, layout, form and materials. In this video I discuss the strategies architects use to find design inspiration and derive meaningful architecture from a home's site. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

A Day in the Life of an Architect | Architecture vlog

Follow a typical day in the life of an architect. Part architecture vlog, part behind-the-scenes look at some of the tasks architects work on each day: from designing a set of elevations to managing projects in construction, to writing specifications, to managing an office, and how to deal with the inevitable creative blocks creatives face on a daily basis. I intentionally structure my day to be divided between making in the morning and managing in the afternoons, with a mid-day transition break for exercise. Learn why this works for me and follow along as I work through some of the most common struggles an architect faces in daily professional practice. For aspiring architects, architecture students, and those curious about exactly what it is that architects do each day. In future vlogs I hope to be able to show more of the construction coordination and dialogue that happens outside of the studio as this is where so many decisions are made. // GEAR I USE // DRONE: *Mavic Pro by DJI: http://amzn.to/2hW3dTA DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 6DMKII http://thirtybyforty.com/6dmkii * Canon 80D: http://amzn.to/2fBWGMQ LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI * Canon 10 - 18mm f4.5 - 5.6 IS Lens: http://amzn.to/2vyErvS * Canon 24-70mm f2.8L Lens: http://amzn.to/2DMt0Y5 MUSIC I USE: * http://thirtybyforty.com/music AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Copic Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/copic-sketch * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap CAD DRAWING TEMPLATE: * Download here: http://thirtybyforty.com/autocad-template STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

Join me for a client meeting and site visit to a very special location on a small island miles off the coast of Maine. Together we walk the site, sketch and discuss the strategies for building in such a pristine environment. You'll hear the questions I ask, the ensuing discussions and discover the ideas that shape the design process and ultimately our architecture. And, perhaps surprisingly, it's more than just a solving of functional problems. This is a wide-ranging discussion that questions local architecture and building traditions, how to design for experience, and covers everything from the mundane and practical to the conceptual. This is a side of the architectural design process rarely seen.

Architecture Client Presentation
 
12:49
A behind-the-scenes look at a typical architecture client presentation for a residential project currently in design. I’ll show you the drawings, models, material samples and imagery I've developed for my clients to review at a recent meeting. Although I wasn’t able to sneak you in for the actual meeting (that’s been difficult to arrange with private clients) I’ve done the next best thing and that is to share with you the thinking and methodology that goes into every single client meeting. Together we’ll review the agenda and how I structure it, all the documents, images, and materials I compile. I discuss the importance of building a coherent story and narrative, how to structure your relationship as a collaboration, why I don’t believe in final renderings, and the special importance sketching has in a meeting environment. Every client meeting is an opportunity to listen more than you speak and I stress how important it is to compartmentalize the myriad decisions into sensible portions to make the process go as smoothly as possible.

How to make an architectural portfolio (for Architects, Interns and Students)
 
16:24
If you're making an architectural portfolio, or yours needs a refresh, this is your how-to guide. We'll review the key differences between paper and digital portfolios, and you'll learn why the best portfolio is the one you're able to keep updated with fresh content. I recommend you craft your portfolio as an integral part of a broader web-based promotion strategy. Your portfolio should - if possible - be available (and searchable) on your own, self-hosted website. Digital portfolio options: - App-based - on a tablet for example (Morpholio, Portfolio, etc.) - PDF - a document you can print or share - Web platform - hosted on someone else's platform (Behance, Issu, Coroflot, Houzz) - Website (self-hosted) - you own the domain, you control the online real estate. The only option I recommend today is the self-hosted website portfolio. I recommend using Squarespace to get started if you don't have one already. Their templates are modern, minimal, and you'll spend time on filling it with great work rather than fussing over the layout - the container. I recommend you take cues from the portfolios of other architects you'd like to work for or whose work you'd like to emulate. Study how they're compiling their portfolios. Learn from them. What to include: 1) Sketches 2) Academic vs. Built work 3) Models 4) Renders What Not to Include: 1) Work you didn't design 2) Old work 3) Lengthy text 4) Spelling errors 5) Poor photography 6) Construction documents 7) Irrelevant work experience 8) Hobbies I also discuss the best way to share your portfolio via email and let you in on an opportunity to have your portfolio reviewed by me on the channel (hint: you have to be a subscriber). // GEAR I USE // DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 70D: http://amzn.to/29klz7k LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

Amelia Lee, The Undercover Architect - Modern Practice Series Ep. 3
 
11:27
Amelia Lee, the Undercover Architect, shares a deeply personal and emotional journey in the latest episode of the modern practice series. You’ll learn what inspired her to create the Undercover Architect podcast and why she left a seemingly perfect professional life behind. She had achieved professional success by any measure, a founding member in one of Australia’s fastest-growing architectural firms, revenues were soaring, they were hiring employees, on-boarding new clients, and winning awards. It was at this high point that she realized it wasn't at all what she was seeking. We begin her story at a point many would consider to be the pinnacle of their career. But a trip to Uganda planted the seed of an idea that would alter the trajectory of her life and career. When she returned, she tipped her professional life upside down, trading a portfolio of work and a stable of clients for a bigger mission: social impact. Learn from one of the most underrated thought leaders in modern architectural practice, someone unafraid of change, quick to pivot, eager to experiment with and challenge accepted norms. Her mission is education and her passion for her work is infectious. She’s a personal mentor and inspiration to me and my business. Please thank her in the comments for having the courage to share it with you so candidly. And be sure to check out and subscribe to her podcast. **LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR NEW COURSE HERE: http://thirtybyforty.com/twhc // GEAR I USE // CAD DRAWING TEMPLATE: * Download here: http://thirtybyforty.com/autocad-template ARCHITECT'S TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL ARCHITECTURE ESSENTIAL TOOLS: * http://thirtybyforty.com/archi-gear PHOTOGRAPHY GEAR: *http://thirtybyforty.com/my-photo-gear MUSIC I USE: * http://thirtybyforty.com/music #architecture #architect # -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

Pro Lighting Strategies, Tips and Tricks
 
10:16
http://thirtybyforty.com/blog (for more...) Our dominant sense as humans is sight. We’ve evolved a finely tuned awareness of light levels around us and assigned them meanings — the warm afternoon sun, a cool and snowy sky, a candlelit table — all of them connected to human emotion. Architecture invokes light to play on these emotions, to render the scale and mood of our spaces, and to create functional places in which to live. Good lighting designs balance three primary types of light: ambient, task and accent. Architects and designers make lighting decisions based on the needs of individual spaces and how to tip that balance to achieve certain effects. In the video I review a few cool tricks worth considering for your next project. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

Architectural Drawing Tutorial | My process + settings
 
12:59
In this architectural drawing tutorial I'll walk you through the exact settings, line weights, pen styles and layers I use to develop architectural drawings digitally for my clients. We'll focus on how to recreate the floor plan you see in this image, our reference project here in Maine that we've been following. You'll also learn how architects choose what to draw, how we approach our drawings conceptually, and how we organize information. This one is filled with drafting tips and tricks you can use everyday, whether you're a seasoned pro, an architecture student or just curious about how architects work. // GEAR I USE // DRONE: *Mavic Pro by DJI: http://amzn.to/2hW3dTA DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 80D: http://amzn.to/2fBWGMQ LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI * Canon 10 - 18mm f4.5 - 5.6 IS Lens: http://amzn.to/2vyErvS AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

8 Habits of Successful Architects
 
09:36
In this video I discuss eight habits that I practice as an architect when designing homes. These are but a few of the architectural habits that I think lead to good architecture - telling a story, sweating the details, engaging the senses, creating (and breaking) rules are just a few of the benefits of working with an architect. I'm certain that I've left many out. I'd love to hear about your habits in the comments. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

Flat roofs and snow - 5 myths busted
 
06:58
In this video I dispel 5 common myths surrounding the use of flat roofs in snowy climates. The very notion of shelter is linked to the image of a roof above our heads. And while the elements of snow and rain may shape our living habits, advances in material technology and application now afford us a broad range of choice when it comes to the shape of the roofs over our heads. Contrary to popular belief, even those of us living in extremely snowy, wet environments are able to live beneath a flat roof. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?

Rethinking doors (a visual essay of architectural possibility)
 
05:56
Subtly shifting our thinking about doors as apertures or openings to thinking about them as wall elements that pivot or slide can create myriad design possibilities. These possibilities can transform the proportions of spaces and more seamlessly integrate the humble door into the architecture of a space. The massive doors of the great cathedrals in Europe were intentionally designed as humbling constructions. That's because door size and treatment in architecture are excellent ways to shift scale with little effort. By contrast, residential construction has historically employed essentially one size door: 3 feet wide and 7 feet tall, drawn from the rough proportions of its inhabitants. In this video I explore a variety of ways architects have been rethinking the way we use doors in architectural design today.

Architecture Short Course: How to Develop a Design Concept
 
19:24
All architecture begins with a concept. If you’re struggling to find one, curious about what one is, or wondering how architects begin their projects; this short course will walk you through the process I use and some of the techniques I rely on to develop architectural concepts all illustrated with one of my residential projects. Design is a dialogue, and the concept ensures you have something to talk about. In this video I discuss the precise steps I take when beginning each project and how those steps lead me to an architectural concept. Before we can develop the concept, we have to first understand the practical constraints. My design process begins only after gathering and assessing all the given parameters for a project. Now, this primarily consists of three types of information. There’s information derived from the site - things like: local climate, the prevailing winds, the solar aspect, vegetation, neighboring structures, the site’s history, and any unique liabilities or opportunities. The site of course also comes along with legal frameworks for development, which describe where and what we can and can’t build. The second type of information we’ll gather is from the client. Every client has a set of cultural beliefs and preconceptions, preferences and agendas. Of course, we’ll want to determine their budget, and understand the personality traits and organizational politics which might also shape the design. The client and the building type together determine what architects call, “the program” which is essentially a detailed accounting of all the spaces the building will contain. And the third type of information I gather is related to the building typology – is it a museum, a home…or a school for example? To learn about a building typology we often conduct an analysis of notable or relevant historical precedents. We want to know the essential problems these types of structures grapple with. Understanding the history of the archetype allows us to approach a problem from a fresh perspective. All of this is necessary information that we collect for every project. This inventory can also serve as the progenitor for the design concept – our seed idea. And, rather than shunting creativity, these constraints often incite the creative process. Concept Inspirations Discussed: - Site - Client - Narrative - Materials - Structural - Mainifestos - Formal As with a good film, the setting, the characters, the cinematography, and the plot all conspire to make it what it is. It’s the experience you’ll recall rather than the concept per se. Sure, the concept sets the film in motion and it’s the starting point for all that follows. But this concept – the one or two-line description – can’t possible capture the richness and depth of the finished film…or in our case the architecture. Yet without it, the work is unfulfilling and so it should be clear that the concept is necessary for all our work as architects. // GEAR I USE // DSLR CAMERA: * Canon 70D: http://amzn.to/29klz7k LENSES: * Canon 24mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29l7ac5 * Canon 40mm f2.8 Lens: http://amzn.to/29x2QcI AUDIO: * Rode VideoMic Pro (hotshoe mtd.): http://amzn.to/29qlNM3 * ATR-2100 USB (dynamic mic): http://amzn.to/2dFDaKp ARCHITECTURE GEAR: * Prismacolor Markers: http://thirtybyforty.com/markers * Timelapse Camera: http://thirtybyforty.com/brinno * AutoCAD LT: http://amzn.to/2dxjMDH * SketchUp PRO: http://amzn.to/2cRcojz * HP T120 Plotter: http://amzn.to/2dBGf1O * Adobe CC Photography (Photoshop/Lightroom) Plan: http://amzn.to/2dhq5ap STARTUP TOOLKIT: * Architect + Entrepreneur Startup Toolkit: http://thirtybyforty.com/SPL -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Is THIS an Architecture Practice?
