July 16 2016, Arch Basics In class discussion focused on the following:
1 – CONCEPT – Restate your concept and check that it has influence on the ‘plan’, not just the exterior ‘look’ or style.
2 –EXTERIOR SPACES – Identify the potential for courtyards, entry points, outdoor seating and walkways resulting from the plan form, the hard and soft landscape.
3 – CIRCULATION – Trace over your block diagram and then draw the plan to scale 1:200. Identify the circulation patterns/elements within the building.
Each person should have their plan drawn up for next class to keep the schedule. If you can also work on the section it would be valuable. We need to develop these and try to draw a 3d view in the next class.
