    Research Interest:
    Fall, 2012: Architectural Drawings (digital) for Monograph on Medieval Architecture.

    Research Interests: Architecture, Historic Preservation, Design, Architectural History, Medieval/Historical Architecture, Medieval History; cultural exchange and interaction.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 6 (negotiable as needed to fulfill project)

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Third or fourth year architecture student; excellent facility with AutoCAD and other software (demonstrated by recommendation from a School of Architecture faculty member & portfolio review); ability to read previously published architectural plans (of historic buildings); attention to detail, dependability and self-direction. Interest in historical architecture a plus (possibly having taken one of the following: AH221/242/243/244/441).

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    I am completing a book on thirteenth-century architectural monuments in Greece and France, and would like to find an advanced undergraduate architecture student who can redraw (in CAD) and help standardize previously published architectural plans, sections and elevations of medieval buildings. These will be for publication in a book due to a publisher in late 2012; c 15-20 plans will be needed. Preference for the student-architect to be able to advise me on possibilities/problem solving in digital representation for new plans as well (visualizing certain archaeological elements not yet planned/graphically represented, such as placing sculptural fragments into drawn plans, hypothetical reconstructions of now-lost structural elements such as roof-lines, etc).
