Final Submission Senior Day Care

Just a few thoughts after seeing what you guys submitted on Friday:

Some of you may want to start making your model immediately, even if your drawn design is not quite resloved 100%. You will probably be able to "finish designing" by completing the model and then draw up based on the model.

Those of you who have one single curved organic "freeform" "non-rectilinear" building may find your model easier to make at a slightly larger scale---maybe even 1:100. You may have to form the curvey form with strips of card.

Generally I think a model at 1:200 may not be impressive enough for most of you. It would be too small to make an impact. Going to 1:150 will not take double the effort but it should almost double the impressiveness.

A model at 1:100 would of course be best, but you have to look at your scheme to see whether a model at 1:100 would be too much work (too big) to handle within the available time left.

About your drawings, if you have to prioritise, I would say the order of importance would be:
  1. Ground Floor (and Lower Ground Floor) Plan @ at least 1:150
  2. 1:50 sections
  3. 1:20 floor-wall-roof section
  4. Site/Roof Plan
  5. the other drawings.

Schedule for 9th & 11th April

Please prepare yourselves for an INTERIM CRIT on Wednesday 11 April 2007. Pin up your drawings and submit a study model complete with roof by 1220. The crit starts at 1230 and you will be crit by tutors and guests other than me.

This interim crit is for the whole class and not just our group. Everyone in Studio 2 will be crit.

I will be available as usual on Monday 9 April from 1300-1700. I would like all of you to work in the studio during this time and refer to me for any assistance and comments on your schemes. There will be no bookings onblog, we'll just write a queue list on the board in the studio.

You should target to have a rough study model and full set of drawings (plans, sections, rough elevations) before you come on Monday.
