Work in Progress: Lantern - Update 2

Work in Progress: Lantern

Here’s a little taste of the architectural competition I’ve been working on with my fellow graduates at RHWL. Be aware it’s still a work in progress.

I don’t think I have ever been as busy as I am right now. I’m currently balancing a full time job, working on an architectural competition, completing applications for my future and somehow finding time to keep my website / portfolio / blog up to date..

I’ve just finished updating the Web Design / Development section of my portfolio. It’s been rather blank for a while; go check it out

I’ve just completed phase 2 of my portfolio redesign. Phase 1 was redesigning the portfolio itself. Phase 2 has been fully integrating Tumblr as my blogging platform.

It’s been a long time in the making but it’s now ready for prime. Im now committed to keeping this blog up to date with my latest progress.

Updates will take the form of: new projects, new photos, life events, and PEDR summaries.

The Lighthouse - A collaborative entry, between the four part 1 students at RHWL, to an AC-CA competition. The project has been a great ice breaker between the team and has given us all the opportunity to work in a more conceptual manner.

The Lighthouse is a holiday home on a Sydney headland built from reused shipping containers.

Silent City - I happened to be up rather early one Sunday and the conditions were perfect for a shot I’d be looking to get since moving to London. http://ift.tt/VqrLzr

With some time to kill over the summer I’ve just updated my portfolio. The site has been rebuilt from scratch, it’s now a static site compiled with DocPad, hosted on my dedicate server and updated via Git.

All rather nifty bits of tech. I urge you to check them out, read through my humans.txt for a full list.

And of course go look around the fresh design.

Laurence Elsdon, BA (Hons)

Today’s the day of my graduation. I now officially have a degree in architecture. Been there; done that; got the parchment.

RHWL Architects

I got a phone call today. I wasn’t really expecting it and was a little dumbfounded; RHWL just offered me a placement. After a few minutes stumbling (and uttering “Are you sure?” multiple times) I accepted.

Therefore, starting in September I’ll be working at Ivory House, St Katharine Docks as an Architectural Assistant.

I guess I need to start looking for somewhere to live in London..

Northumbria Architecture Degree Show

Yesterday was my birthday, and coincidentally also the opening night of our Degree Show. I had an absolutely fantastic evening and encourage you to go along and see mine and my peers work!
