San Mateo High School

San Mateo High School

A spectacular view of the main entrance to San Mateo High School in San Mateo, CA.

The design demanded a one point perspective view and lowering the camera increased the power of the leading line.

Decision

Decision

The design of this federal courthouse spoke of the great authority held within. The dignity of the approach is compelling but what struck me most was the unquestioned dominating authority of the design.

Refuge

Refuge

I was impressed by the flow of the design and strong contrast. Upon seeing inside I realized this home was a psychological refuge for the homeowner. This gave me the clue to the essence of the design. This is a portal to an alternate existence, a reality free of the stresses and worries of the outside world.

The mix of materials in the adaptive reuse project inspired me and the dramatic composition flowed from the brutality of the design.

Conformity

Conformity

The multiple right angles in this space were what first caught my eye. I decided the best composition would be tho make use of the repetition of pattern and enhance that by filling the lower left of the frame with the regimented desks.

Untitled

Untitled

The colors and rectangular forms of this apartment building spoke to me. The asymmetrical composition was completed by placing the woman and dog in dark clothing to add visual weight to the lower right of the frame.

The Passage

The Passage

The strong lines of the design and the eccentric placement of the door to this home were very intriguing to me. I loved how the visual weight of the glass pivot door is offset by the surprising stair and door on the upper right of the image.

The motion of the floor and banister caught my attention. We gave it a purpose by adding the sculpture in silhouette.

Recession

Recession

The motion of this composition is what appeals to me the most. The repetitive forms leading to the large expanse of the window draws the eye, the lighter background forces the viewers attention to travel deep within the image.

Identity

Identity

I love the strong contrast of the colors and luminance the dark chair against the far wall is the visual focus of the image. All the other elements are "supporting characters" combined they define the identity of the space.

Transition

Transition

This image was appealing to me because the space transitions between the dark and dramatic break room flowing into the light welcoming exterior view.

Uplift

Uplift

I love how the strong line of the sidewalk blends into the tower. The color contrasts are remarkable and give the image an appeal that I feel is as spiritually uplifting as the visual motion of the image.

This view of the city council chamber speaks of the authority of the council and how their combined will goes out to impact the lives of the people outside.
