Team 1 / Week 9

Site Analysis…Inspirational Site Visit

“Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the world exist. Be curious.”

-Stephen Hawking


Week 9 was very successful. We learned about how architects think in site plan/aerial view, floor plan, section, and elevation. A short exercise required students to draw bell peppers in these different drawing types to begin to grasp their meaning. Everyone did a great job! Even had some shading going on… well done! Next on the agenda was the site visit for our competition project. We did a little site analysis… checking the place out for elements and constraints that could shape future design decisions. The area seems to be a great location to revitalize… a void in the cityscape waiting to be populated with activity. Let’s see what we come up with programmatically next session… oh the possibilities!
