Buchanan Architecture Introduction by Russell Buchanan


Russell Buchanan of Buchanan Architecture walks us through the schematic design phase of his residential project in Crested Butte, CO.  He discusses the importance of capitalizing on views and solar orientation, and how they influenced the building layout. He also sketches out a bubble diagram to illustrate the spatial and functional relationships as well as the structural grid.

Hi, my name is Russell Buchanan. I'm an architect in Dallas. Today we're gonna be looking at a 5,000 square foot residence in Crested Butte, Colorado. This is an interesting project in that it capitalizes on views to the east and south. And also honors the solar orientation to provide for sustainable architecture in this location.
