Doghouse 1: Reflections • 

Learning basic SketchUp tools, operations, and mindset was a little difficult at first but, after an hour or two of exploring this program I started getting the hang of it. It took approximately 3 hours to complete Doghouse 1

• 

The main purpose of this assignment is to simply use SketchUp to give form to my initial ideas related to a “doghouse”. These ideas are literal and obvious – a good place to begin before incorporating abstract concepts and principles into my SketchUp work.

• 

Initial ideas given form led to more design possibilities of shapes, sizes, proportions, detail, finishes, color, and entourage.

• 

Tools used (View>Tool Palettes>Large Tool Set): select, rectangle, measuring box, push/ pull, arc, move/copy, scale, tape measure, protractor, orbit, pan, and zoom

• 

Dialog Boxes used (Window): Materials, Styles, Scenes, and Shadows

• 

Inference tools are important to control placement of objects and relate them to others.

Doghouse 1: Reflections (cont.) • 

Right click dialog box was used to hide selected lines.

• 

Only 2D components from 3D Warehouse were used to maximize computing speed. The maple tree was selected for its fall colors and copied twice. The dog was resized to 1.5x.

• 

Views of Doghouse 1 were saved as .png files and exported to Doghouse 1 folder. It was difficult to save all orthographic views at the same scale and size. When shadows better informed the view, they were used. Need to control what gets incorporated into or removed in each view

• 

Incorporating reflections and images into a PowerPoint document identified layout issues related to image size, scale, and placement that was resolved using Shapes>Rectangle>Line Color>Fill Color>Effects (turn off shadow). I suspect using SketchUp Pro layout tools will resolve this. It took approximately 3 hours to produce the first 9 slides of this presentation. It takes time to determine how best to develop and format this portfolio! Hopefully this instructor example will minimize student time spent.

Doghouse 1: SLO Progress Report SLO 2: Select and effectively use either manual or digital means to explore, analyze, and document an evolution of design ideas in architecture and interior design 2.a. Relate modes of representation; select and apply best system to explore and communicate design intentions

Used perspective and orthographic views to communicate the idea of doghouse 1

2.b. Produce a set of architectural drawings to document a case study

NA

2.c. Produce a portfolio of work that chronicles student learning throughout the semester

Yes

SLO 3: Accurately relate each aspect of the drawn visual language system to three-dimensional reality and human perception

Use of perspective view with entourage and shade and shadows communicates the reality of Doghouse 1. Inclusion of a human figure an other familiar forms gives a credible scale to the doghouse form.

SLO 4: Visually and verbally explain the process of idea development using graphic representation

The process of developing the doghouse included a series of thinking and making cycles. With each completion of a cycle, fragments and general notions eventually became whole, unified, and represented a set of full design intentions. Generating various views emphasized different aspects of form, space, proportions, and composition of design elements.

Doghouse 1: SLO Progress Report SLO 5: Develop an awareness of the relationships between graphic representations and fundamental design principles and elements

This initial doghouse is obvious and literal with a symmetrical organization of a gable roof, Dutch entry door, and round rear window. This dominant use of symmetry is balanced by an asymmetrical placement of the chimney/ fireplace and the brick covered dais. The space below the maple trees creates an intimate context for the doghouse.
