My MArch portfolio application - as requested

Hey guys, seeing as this is the architecture thread I thought it would be most appropriate to post here for feedback.

I have officially sent my application packages to Dalhousie, Manitoba, and Toronto and should hear back in 2-4 months. Thought you might all want to check out my mediocre portfolio.

For the table i would change 'made' to 'built' and dont mention the motivation from the street lamp , it looks too similar but maybe i'm just being anal

^i wanted to be honest in my motivations...

Borrowing inanimate objects or objects found in nature for motivation is very important for architects IMO.

fantastic work.
the composition of your Super Urban/Super Awesome Skinny House reminded me of Zaha Hadid's Cincinnati Contemporary Art Centre in terms of composition.

You're right , but its more towards ' copied ' than ' motivated by '

Taking criticism is part of the trade also

not quite sure what you mean...but when i do buildings i generally follow a grid layout. This happened by accident but worked very well.
