Hello. I am an architecture student at the University of Waterloo in Cambridge, Ontario. This blog for me at least is a means of soul searching, looking to capture as much of life as I can through every medium. This is a documentation of my search for peace of mind. Expect distractions. Expect Spontaneity. Do not always expect an explanation. Love, Connor

sheppard robson architects and the importance of hand drawing the design process


Dan Burr and Lee Bennett of the architectural practice Sheppard Robson underline the importance of hand sketching in the design process.

Lee Bennet muses, “When you’re working with a computer, there’s a machine in the way. When you’re drawing, its an instant connection between your brain and the paper, and there’s something kind of instant about it, and magical.”


Wine Terrace and Spa Gereben Marián Architects Ltd.

"Situated close to Eger, at the foot of Nagy Eged Hill, a wine terrace is to be built on the vineyard grounds belonging to the Csutorás Winery. Serving as an ideal location for wine tastings, the wine terrace is complemented by 4 small huts and a lookout, located at the edge of the site. The huts resemble the archaic buildings of the wine region with their characteristic proportions and use of materials. The folded roof structure of the terrace provides a perfect place to relax and enjoy the scenic view with a glass of wine"

A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."


There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because this is truly how white America works. Like people have their weddings on plantations, Blackface was and still is a major source of entertainment and the biggest movie of all time was Gone With the Wind. White America will kill Black people and then smile and laugh and enjoy their day it sickens me that we’re treated this way.
