Sharing (a few) of my favorite items from my everyday carry - all under $20 - that every architect (and student) needs as well as a philosophy on living a creative life. These tools are the raw materials for design, the inspiration comes from within, in this video I share how I refill my creative stores week after week; it's a reminder for architects, aspiring architects, and students alike.
Here are the tools mentioned:
1” Cardboard Stencils (the Midori set in the video I found to be too small)
Alvin .7mm Mechanical Pencil (good for bold pencil work, see below for my favorite for general sketching)
Dot grid sketchbook (alternate to Muji above)
