Add other information such as major openings (like windows), structural grid lines,Begin to generate a structural grid on your plan. Label the grid properly. Remember that the grid spacing is a reflection of the type of structural system you are using and the size of the members.
Basic Facade detailing. At this scale only major structural elements will be shown.
Label all spaces with a key or text at 10pt font size.
Refer to previous assignment on floor plans for all necessary information for plans.
Print plans at 1/8”=1’ on 11x17 or appropriate sheet size Re-Print or Add any drawings or information as discussed in class Important Books for Reference: Studio Companion Concrete Construction Manual Glass Construction Manual
Sections | Create a longitudinal (long section) and a transverse (short sections) through your project. Select what you feel is the most informative section to explain spatially your project. Do not cut through the elevator or through the middle of a wall.
Constructing architecture : materials, processes, structures
Primary and secondary structure must be present in the drawings. Foundation and footings should also be drawn. All wall, roof, and floor thicknesses must be shown. Column grid should be present, drawn as dashed lines. Scale 1/8”= 1’ Elevation | Create an elevation of the Main St. Facade. Be sure to place your elevation within the already created street elevation. Articulate your facades with as much detail as possible. Be sure it is clear where your Entry is. This is not drawn with single lines. It has material and dimensions.

Continue your development and design of the skin. Start working towards fenestrations which make connections to the context, program, and environment. Things to consider are; windows, doors, louvers, vents, wall panels, skylights, storefronts, curtain walls, slope glazed systems, double skin, and layering. Make any necessary physical and digital models, diagrams, 2d , 3D, and Axon drawings and wall sections, and exploded axon drawings. Detail is critical here, know your materials that you are using,
Continue to explore any necessary physical and digital models that help you work through the details of your project. Take screen shots and draft over the top to explore multiple iterations, and work out major fenestrations. ABOVE : Wall Section
