Begin with research. Sketch your hometown from memory or/and use Google maps as a tool.

The idea of a “hometown” is broadly interpreted here. It can be the place you lived before coming to Tulane, or where you spend summers, where you used to live, etc.

Identify four systems as discussed in class and render them in four materials.

Do a series of drawings and mock-ups on a smaller scale, say 4″ x 4″, using materials you are considering. Discuss your choices with your studio instructor. Remember, sometimes your first idea is not your best.
