Instead of shapes and lines found in nature, today’s post will be shapes and lines find in architecture.

As part of Experience Architecture Week in Sacramento each year, there are various workshops and events open to the public, including rooftop tours of selected city high rises, photography contests and exhibitions, and a showcase of a selected home.

This year’s home is the “Flight House” designed by renown architect Maria Ogrydziak and located just outside the city of Davis in Yolo County. Constructed of steel I-beams, wire wrapped Styrofoam, with interior and exterior walls coated with gunite concrete, this home does not contain any wood framing. It was awesome for us to be able to visit this very modern house set in the middle of rural farmland and being able to speak to both the architect, homeowners, and construction material manufacturers.

Unfortunately, from a photography standpoint, the event was scheduled in the middle of the day. I would have liked to shoot the house later in the day or evening when the house is all lot from the interior.  In the meantime, I spent time shooting the industrial elements resulting in lines and shadows.
