     Hey Brinn! I can’t believe I’m the first to leave a comment! Your new website/blog looks absolutely fabulous! Congratulations! Your posts are critical, fun, and to the point! Good luck and look forward to  more future posts.

  • Brinn please consider this my entry!
    I’ve been Tweeting and Facebooking your “Apple Products” post after you pointed me to it this afternoon. The whole Architects Like series is really great. I’m glad to have fulfilled one more stereotype with the purchase of the iPhone 4.   

  •  Hey, I love your website!   I’ve been following your “Architects Like” for a while, but I didn’t know about your other blogs.  I love the entry from April 1st about the “Mother’s House” townhouses, I have never see that complex of townhouses before!

  • Congrats on the new website, I look forward to seeing more of your work and reading more from your blog. Best to you!

     I just started reading your blog (followed you here from Bob’s blog), so I can’t really comment too much on the posts you have, but so far I’ve really enjoyed the Neighborhood Observations post. I really like how you analyze the houses in your neighborhood from an architectural standpoint. It’s amazing how our perceptions change after architecture school. I just finished my 2nd year, but I can’t go into a building without noticing it’s materials, structure, or spaces anymore. It seems like Architecture totally changes your paradigm. 

    Keep up the great work. I look forward to reading more of your posts. 

    Also, if you don’t mind sharing, what program do you render in? Your renderings look fantastic!

    • Thanks for stopping by, Dan! Architecture will definitely shape the way you view and analyze the world around you. For the photo-realistic competition renderings, I usually have a friend do those. He uses 3DStudio Max for the scenes and then I come in after with Photoshop to put in the people and adjust it. I tend to do simple renderings with Sketch Up on my own, and I’m currently exploring the use of a wacom tablet with Photoshop ‘painting’ effects.

      Good luck with the rest of your studies!

    Love to get one of those shipping containers. Now if I could just afford a plot of land…

    Did you see Tron? The protagonist’s house was prefab kit “Quik House” designed by Adam Kalkin. Pretty cool.

    • Didn’t see Tron, but it is in the Netflix Queue!

    My fave is your Jan. post of opening up your sketchbook. They were beautiful.
    RT@ simplybrinn http://ow.ly/4ZFbg There is more art in architects that most of the world never sees. Beautiful sketches. ^MM #sketch

    • Thanks for the compliment! So often architects focus on the final product and forget to appreciate the beginning stages: sketches, ideas, drawings… Thanks for sharing!
