ARCH Studio Project
First step concept models
|Rough foam board concept models
We start by thinking about Program and the general areas that would be defined as public or private. For example Living room vs. bedroom. On the far left you can see where I highlighted these areas in pink and yellow.
Then we have Spaces. In the model just below that you can see I began to create voids where the pieces pulled apart.
Next, Structure. I decided I wanted the model to have a continuous structure and even bay sizes.
In the next model down you can see the Circulation starting to define some of the architectural moves and the general way in which I would like people to move through the space.
Finally we study the Materials we might use. This is the last model in every column. So, we started with the first row, (there was actually 6 in total) and of those we chose 3 to continue studying and worked our way from there.
Drawings get marked up, we fix them, print em' and do it all again. and again. and again.
|60 Building flash cards for final exam
We also have an architectural history class that is unlike anything I've taken before. For each exam we are expected to know the name, date, architect and location of 50+ buildings and be able to write a short essay comparing a few of them. This class is the hardest for me. I had to listen to my recordings of the lectures at least twice to remember all of the information. I have never made so many flash cards in all of my academic career.
