Below is a list of design projects by years.
In September 1961 I started at the University of Oklahoma at Norman. I received one year of advanced standing for my design work at Taliesin. All transfer students were required to take the first semester first year course, Architecture 8. This course taught the basics of organic design process. This course started by designing points and from this simple beginning, took the development of the student through more and more complex designs. All were two dimensional and no buildings were designed until second semester.
I enjoyed this beginning course very much even though I had been designing buildings for several years. I have some of my design studies from this course and will try and get them copied on this site in the future.
