@saraharmstrong_aia photo Feeling #thankful today
Feeling #thankful today because what I do is so much more than a J-O-B to me. Each day I get to help clients, be creative, and do what I LOVE. And did I mention my boss is great to work for too? #womenownedbusiness #studio360llc #whatthisarchitectdoes #selfemployed #entrepreneur #architect #businessgoals #lovemywork #nawbodc

You mean you don't add people to your interior elevations on your construction drawings? #whatthisarchitectdoes

Making a #Table Part 4 . Now #assembled on the base, the #sheeshamwood top get its own share of #love by way of a water based top coat. This protects the surface during use and makes it #infinitely easier to #maintain. . This is the last of the table posts and normal #architectural service shall resume over the #weekend, as we take to #Delhi’s roads to look at how our #buildings are doing around the #city. . #GorgeousWood #WhatThisArchitectDoes #AKDA #IndianArchitecture

We do little projects as well, something that seems to surprise most people. I am lucky to be in a position to choose projects because I like the folks with whom I get to work (making the fee work is sometimes a challenge but we typically find a way to make it work) . . . . . . . #whatthisarchitectdoes #design #smallprojects #sketching #architecturalsketch #conceptdesign #architectstalkthroughsketches

@saraharmstrong_aia photo Sometimes just when we think
Sometimes just when we think we have it all figured out, a project needs a second look. I'm never afraid to revisit some selections to get them #justright. This week we are testing some and fine tuning others with the nd goal of doing good work and making the client happy. When we get both its a #winwin! .. .. .. #whatthisarchitectdoes #studio360llc #interiors #selections

@leecalisti photo So this is not exciting yet,
So this is not exciting yet, but the G.C. called me out to review topography and floor elevations (a good thing). This is where having an architect on board during construction is valuable as the abstraction of drawings must be reconciled with reality. This architect was dressed up at a client review meeting this morning and dressed down literally in the mud this afternoon. #whatthisarchitectdoes #ilovebeinganarchitect

Although I spend a lot of time doing what I do, I always have massive respect for the people who did this by hand. #whatthisarchitectdoes #whatthatarchitectdid

Making a #Table Part 3 . Not a big fan of #sanding by hand, but these guys do know what they are doing - Constantly assessing the surface by hand, their #heuristic feel for #finishing is hard to match. #Sheesham requires more work than most woods owing to the #density of the wood and the #telltale white edges which are softer. . #ProofThatTheWoodLovesThisTooIsOnTheLastImage. . #woodworking #WhatThisArchitectDoes

Making a #Table Part 1 . After matching the #timber panels, a rough circle is marked out. First the inset support circle is carved out using some #carpentry #wizardry. Next the panels are glued together and held with #dovetails . Next we shall be trimming the exterior shape and sanding/polishing the top surface. . #DontHoldYourBreadthThoughTheseThingsTendToTakeLongerThanYouThink #WhatThisArchitectDoes #Sheesham

Today I rode my bike today to Ed Hall for the first time in 10 years. I’m speaking to the NYIT Architecture Students about the Architect Exam. Tomorrow night, I’ll be in Newark to chat with the Architecture students at NJIT! Guys, I think I’m falling deeply in love with this new bicycle. She’s fast, has all the right moves and is sexy AF. #whatanarchitectdoes #whatthisarchitectdoes #nyitarchitecture #duderobot

@bobborson photo Most of my design
Most of my design conversations with my coworkers look like this - a 12’ long piece of trace paper that articulates concepts better than words. It isn’t beautiful, but it’s effective and collaborative ... and it goes in the trash by the end of the day. . . . . . . . #whatthisarchitectdoes #sketching #design #designprocess #collaborative #tracepaper
