* * * Thank you for visiting Composition & Character! My name is Samuel Lima. I am an alumnus of Judson University's M.Arch program and the Master of Architectural Design and Urbanism program at the University of Notre Dame. I am passionate about excellence in the design of classical and traditional architecture and the creation of new places worthy of the care of future generations!


Rockford Charrette

These are a few watercolors from a charrette that I recently participated in for Rockford, Illinois. Under the leadership of the Rock River Development Partnership and Live Work Learn Play LLP, we worked on a plan for the revitalization of a focus area near the river. Brendan Herr, Dr. Christopher Miller of Judson, and I drew the scenes, and then I painted them.

The subject of the paintings is a new central market for the city and the restoration of several downtown buildings.
