As an early assignment for Architecture 132 - a class at Cornell I chose to take in part because it filled a history requirement, and because I’ve always been somewhat interested in architecture - we were asked to draw “every place we have ever lived”. For me that was somewhat easy since, up until college, I had spent my whole life in the same house. The point, I think, was to reconsider what is needed in a dwelling, and to compare our relatively lavish houses to a gallery of “primitive huts” we had just learned about. Or something. Admittedly, the well-attended course wasn’t that well-organized or coherent.
Regardless, it was an opportunity to draw again. Something I hadn’t spent nearly enough time doing since my days in middle school. So, with much excitement I chronicled my various dwellings, from childhood up until the present (as of Spring 2000).
