MODES OF DESIGN COMMUNICATION I

ARCH 155 New Jersey School of Architecture Fall 2011 Thomas Barry / Abigail Coover / Emilia Ferri / Julio Figueroa / Justin Foster / Matt Gosser / Brent Klokis / Daniel Kopec / Enkela Malellari / Ceu Martinez / Jorge Prado / Larry Sassi / Tim Wood PROJECT DESCRIPTION / ORTHOGRAPHIC DRAWINGS Learning how to describe three-dimensional space through two-dimensional drawings is an essential architectural skill. Through the use of orthographic projection the design of spaces and volumes can be studied and described. Orthographic drawings can not only be used to represent an architectural project or idea, but also as a means to generate architectural solutions. PARAMETERS You will be constructing a physical model out of chipboard that you will use to create both orthogrpahic drawings and projections as well as a series of generative diagrams. A combination of hand and computer aided drafting will be used. DELIVERABLES PART 01 / 29 SEPTEMBER Create [1] 10-sided chipboard model not to exceed 6 in any direction. All sides are to be orthagonal. Through hand drafting, create a series of orthographic drawings and projections of your model. Please consider the overall composition of each drawing sheet using construction lines to organize your drawings. [1] top elevations [2] side elevations [1] plan [2] sections [1] axonometric Scale: 1-0 = 1-0 / drawings to be on 18x24 paper PART 02 / 06 OCTOBER Create [1] 8-sided chipboard model not to exceed 6 in any direction that will attach to your model from Part 01. All sides are to be orthagonal. Through computer aided drafting, create a series of orthographic drawings and projections of your models. Please consider the overall composition of each drawing sheet using construction lines to organize your drawings. [1] top elevations [2] side elevations [1] plan [2] sections [1] axonometric Scale: 6 = 1-0 / drawings to be on 11x17 paper

PART 03 / 13 OCTOBER Taking your drawings from Part 02, create a series of [8] generative diagrams. Begin by printing your drawings and using trace overlays to test out ideas for your diagrams. Once finalized, use computer aided drafing to draw each final drawing. Consider how line weights and line types can be used to reinforce your ideas. Here are a series of architectural ideas that you can use to begin your diagrams: solid/void figure/ground symmetry/asymmetry literal/phenomenal transparency repetition rhythm geometry proportions scale horizontal/vertical relationships shift/rotation pattern/field condition folds

Scale: 6 = 1-0 / drawings to be on 11x17 paper LEARNING OBJECTIVES To develop orthographic drawing skills. To begin to understand measured and scaled drawings. To develop the use of line weights and line types. To use orthographic drawings as a design tool. To develop basic physical model making skills. EVALUATION CRITERIA: Proficiency of measured orthographic drawings. Ability to understand scale. Ability to accurately describe space and volume through line weight and line type. SCHEDULE Assigned: Due: Archive Due: Thursday 22 September Thursday 13 October Tuesday 18 October
