Archinia is more than just design.
It is design infused with spirit.

Alpine Tunnel Habs, Pitkin, CO
Co-captain of team recording existing conditions of the town of Alpine, Colorado. The mortarless stone engine house and cold storage structures were designed and constructed by Italian stonemasons. Snow and erosion undermined the abandoned structures. My task was to reconstruct the stone structures and complete hand drawings for the survey. After on-site work was completed, I returned to Texas A&M for 5 months of hand-drawing the resulting notes with ink on Mylar. This project was nominated for the Peterson prize.
It has been pointed out that there is an error on the right drawing. The original drawings of the enginehouse which were used as a basis for this drawing were drawn by Joe Crae of Colorado in 1973, and the journal published in 1974.
Some sketches from my in-the-field journal for the HABS documentation of the Alpine Tunnel Historic Site.
