Week 6 – Site Analysis + Bubble Diagram
This week’s meeting was focused on creating a new site analysis for the Damen Silos project. Students had to become familiar with the site and the surrounding area before moving forward with the project. Site logistics such as traffic routes, areas of interest, and surrounding neighborhoods were considered during this site analysis. Since it was their second time completing a site analysis, students were able to complete the assignment with ease! The next task was to create bubble diagrams for the concepts that students had for the project. The goal was to create a general concept to work with. Project elements such as vertical farming, a community art space, and an inviting landscape were discussed and programmed into the bubble diagrams. Students had the opportunity to share and discuss which ideas they liked best and wanted to incorporate into their design.
