“Stories from the Pandemic: A Spatial Survey of Stay-at-home Stress”
Journal of Architectural Education 75:2, Building Stories, forthcoming
In “Figures, Doors and Passages,” Robin Evans contends: “If anything is described by the architectural plan, it is the nature of human relationships... But what is generally absent in even the most elaborately illustrated building is the way human figures will occupy it.” More than a medium for architectural design, how might the plan drawing serve to tell stories of lives actually lived?

Developed over the Fall of 2020 with a grant from Rice University, this project tests a graphical method for interview transcriptions and surveying-bydrawing. Its purpose is to shift the relentless statistical gaze of COVID-19 toward the granular scale of the domestic body, and lend nuance and voice to oft-invisible, unequally felt interior spaces of the pandemic.
