In my last semester at Taubman College I had the privilege of taking an amazing drawing class with one of the school’s foremost experts on drawing and representation, Perry Kulper. His work has been published extensively, in addition to several posts here on archinect.

A commitment that, at least in my opinion, was paid back 10x by the final work.
This work focuses on erasure as a means of generating an arch...
