Dalton Sample Sheets

  1. 1. Liz Dalton 690 Walavista Avenue Oakland, CA 94610 lizdalton7@gmail.com (510) 821-2910 LD
  2. 2. 1201 Massachusetts Avenue This MA thesis project, entitled “The Imaginative Pleasure of Unexpected Scale,” is a mixed-use building of micro-apartments and retail shops that celebrates small square footage rather than seeking to distract from it. Small- scale living, which is often seen as undesirable, can actually be a positive experience that promotes neighborly communities and a childlike sense of joy and play. This project received the Excellence in Thesis Design Award and was a semi-finalist for the IIDANE Graduate Student Award.
  3. 3. 711 Boylston Street Goal: Design a flagship store for an existing company, focusing on custom lighting solutions that reflect the brand’s identity. The client selected, ModCloth, is an online retailer of women’s fashion, accessories, and home goods. They have been praised for their continuing commitment to body positivity and individual style. In addition to display areas, a cash wrap, and fitting rooms, the program includes soft seating and an ice cream parlor so that shoppers may relax and socialize while in the store. Custom lighting solutions include a double-layered LED cove, balloon-like displays that turn colors when approached, and a jukebox-inspired doorway that changes colors when passed through. These features, as well as playful decorative fixtures, reflect the retro, whimsical aesthetic of the client’s clothing.
  4. 4. 212 Elm Street Goal: Research a historical style and distill one of its characteristics into a contemporary design. The style for this project was Art Deco, focusing on the movement’s abstraction of forms into geometric planes. These colored planes are formed from single pieces of sheet metal which can ship flat to reduce costs. The program is a jazz club that incorporates the display of Art Deco artifacts: a lacquered baboon screen, a chrome toothpick holder, and the Tamara de Lempicka painting “Portrait of a Young Girl in a Green Dress.”
  5. 5. 1584 Wesleyan Drive Goal: Design an academic building for the forward-thinking “NEXT University” in Norfolk, VA including classrooms, a faculty hub, and a student cafe. The project was a student design competition run by Steelcase and students were asked to incorporate Steelcase furnishings throughout as well as to embrace the company’s philosophy of integrated technology and flexible learning spaces. This project was one of two selected from the class to be entered into the competition.
