Mt. Pisgah Studio

The study of this studio was a deforested south Willamette Valley butte dominated by a major transmission line easement, but otherwise left relatively undeveloped and spotted with native vegetation.

Thoughts on how qualities of terrain and vegetation affect personal and group experience of the landscape, such as the effects that exposure, enclosure, containment, concealment have on views, sounds, smells, and comfort. Difficult concepts to capture in drawings.
