Architecture USA: in the Works

Just a Preview of this week's Project -- The regional differences in American architecture will pair with their respective regions and illustrate a relationship between a region's climate, culture, and topography and its ways of building. A focus on small dwellings. I spent last week drawing this topographical map of America and am beginning the house drawings. Figuring out how to "pair" the houses and the land is my challenge - an architect's perennial dilemma!
In the meantime, I'm also snatching the states from this large topographical drawing and pairing them with a quintessential house type and state tree, as small prints and postcards, like these for South Carolina, featuring a Charleston side porch house.
