  4. 4. Tyler McLemore Portfolio Clemson University Architecture is something I have always been extremely passionate about. Even before I knew what architecture was I was building with Legos and drawing floor plans with sidewalk chalk. Now, with two years of architecture school under my belt, I have learned that the field of architecture is far more complex and beautiful than just how abuilding looks. I believe we as architects are granted with a tremendous amount of privi-lege and responsibility. This is a responsibil- ity that must be approached with diligence, care, and attention to detail. Because the buildings we design are not just of a works of art, but also, create and define culture and society.
  5. 5. Handheld Object hand drawing For this project, we were to analyze a handheld object of our choosing. I chose to analyze a wine bottle opener. The analysis took place through a two part project: hand drawing and digitaldrawing. My main focus was to illustrate how this tool operatated through move- ment. Once the hand drawing was completed, we were allowed the opportunity to bring it into photoshop to make adjust- ments. I chose to use a ‘glowing edges’ filter to create an inverse effect to cre- ate more contrast in the drawing. [tyler]
  6. 6. Handheld Object digital drawing Twist This project allowed us our first opportunity to explore and develop newly learned draw- Grab ing techniques both digital and by hand. The digital drawings were completed usingautocad and adobe illustrator. Some of these drawings were taken into photoshop for ad- ditional editing.

  10. 10. facade design florence, italy once we completed the spacial analysis for our selected city, webegan designing our first model of a facade. this project was composed of two parts: a physical model and later a digital drawing using google sketchup. This design process was interesting in that we didn’t designthen build, we designed by building. once the model was completed, we placed it between two buildings in the city we had just analyzed in our mapping project. This is a unique and interesting approach to design that allows you to begin thinking in three dimensions. [tyler]
  11. 11. facade design physical model my spefic design intention was to create a building not not only immitates nature but also attempts blur the gap between indoor and outdoor. the wooden detail on the front mocks a waterfall poor- ing out from under the rooftop terrace. the roof detail is tilted up to allow airflow and filtered sunlight to enter. the porches and recessed body help to erase theline between indoors and outdoors.

  14. 14. itinerary music video analysis for the first part of this project, we were to analyze a selected musicvideo. i conducted my alal- ysis based upon musical elements such as percus- sion and melody. once the physical model was completed, i brought a picture into photoshop. After applying a ‘glowing edges’ filter, I placed my model in a space context alluding to space setting of the music video. [tyler]

  16. 16. threshold/ surfaceheightfield remix HEIGHTFIELD REMIX THRESHHOLD PROF. JACQUES TYLER MCLEMOREthis project gave us anopportunity to create a landform on which our FOLD SPIN next project would bedesigned. the final re- sult of this project wasa 30ft x 30ft undulating landmass. step 1: painted foil step 2: layered pixelation step 3: smoothe contour [tyler]
  17. 17. pauseplanar experience for this project, i really explored the use of planes a perfect cubes. I tried to create a feeling that the shapes were sliding past one another. [tyler]
  18. 18. door window stair physical model The general idea of this project was to take an interpretaion of our smoothecontour from the foil project, this becomes our landform or site. We were to create three “moments” on/within/under this landform and connect them with a combi- nation of windows, stairs, and doors. [tyler]
  19. 19. door window stair with both my study mod- els and final, i focused on planar design. everything is working off of 90 degree angles. each component isnoticably it’s own rather than creating just a single object. i aimed to create a spacethat is very open and closed at the same time. with the heightfield as my context, i force the visitor to weave inand out of the landmass un- til they reach to final lookout point that is perched at the peak of the model. [tyler]
  20. 20. door window stairprocess and inspiration before creating our final model, we engaged in intensive study model building, technical draw- ings and searching for inspiration. I took inspiration from the prairie style and created models with planar feel that attempt to blur the edge between indoor and outdoor space. [tyler]
