ruminations about architecture and design

death of a salesman stage set

This is the first time I've posted something that I've designed. Hooray.
This an image from a Sketchup model of a potential stage set for a high school performance of the iconic Arthur Miller play. The author's directions are quite specific and I'm trying to stay faithful to them. My only design contributions are the house "frames" that flank the primary
action areas.
I'm very much interested in comments from anyone as to the effectiveness of this design. I have no experience with this type of architecture--although some projects I've worked on in real life have had a rather short lifespan (fire, demolition, client changes mind....).


  1. How are the house "frames" going to stand up?

  2. House frames will have an angled brace on the rear side (painted black). There's a conscious effort to make them look a little precariouos looking.
