Villa Savoye

While trying to gain valuable skills in 3D digital programs, a case study of plans and elevations of Villa Savoye by architect Le Corbusier helped obtain drafting skills. Because Villa Savoye used many geometric forms, the formal diagrams showed how forms were designed differently on a grid plan. The diagrams were also a practice to learn how to start drafting. First, it is important to visually understand the overall form where the difference between the wall and the floor pattern is readable.

Villa Savoye

Building blocks is the fundamental elements of designing space. When connecting the shapes into a puzzle, they form to have a relation to how these shapes interact when connected. As the blocks were connected, they were transformed into a whole unit space where the puzzle was solved.


drafting

building blocks

Choosing an inspiration such as Frank Lloyd Wright, I was given a project about identifying Wright’s design elements by building a model that had similar qualities. The model is supported by heavy slabs and a long vertical block. Because Wright was famous for his horizontal overexposed roof, the model had one roof cantilevering the space. The two spaces were overlapping as the long vertical block was interlocking.

Personnel Two young adult females. The client Janice and her cousin. Preliminary Information There are two types of social experiences: public and private. The public social experiences between their guests are mainly spent in the living room and the dining room on the first floor. Because these spaces are connected, their social experiences are the same. Socializing and eating with friends and family are the primary experiences that are used both in the living and dining room. The private social experience is spent in the hall on the second floor between Janice and her cousin. They usually sit on the floor and socialize. The hall between their rooms is an area to break from their rooms. Activity Because Janice’s house is small, she does not do a lot of activities. In the bedroom, Janice and her cousin separately study, watch TV, and get dressed. Janice’s cousin cooks in the kitchen and sometimes she loves to entertain her guests in the living room. They both eat in the dining room and in the living room. Janice spends most of her time in her bedroom. Her cousin spends most of her time in the kitchen. The second most spent time space is their bathroom, and then followed by their living room. Physical Requirements Beds Desks Dining Table Sofa/ Coffee Table Appliances Janice would like to have table in the kitchen, television in the living room, desk in her cousin’s room, and bookshelves in both their bedrooms. These artifacts would run the space smoother. They already have a television in their rooms, but another one in the living room would be better for their guests. Another table in the first floor would make it easy for them to entertain their guests. Having more shelves Janice would prefer the bedrooms, the bathrooms, and the kitchen to have more space. There is less natural light filtering inside. The house is darker in the morning. More light filters in the dining and living space on the first floor. There is more light in her cousin’s bedroom than Janice’s. The space in between the bedrooms is darker. A different type of lighting would help make the space run better. It would be better if there was artificial light in the dark spaces.


The centralized hall is echoing throughout the ground and first floor plans. It is the main space that connects with the rest of the other public and private spaces. The public spaces such as the living, dining, guest room, den, and the kitchen are usually found in the ground plan.

residential

Structural Organization The first and second floor plan have a centralized structural organization. The living room is centered around the kitchen and dining room. On the second floor, the hall is in the center of the two bedrooms. The primary spaces are the bedrooms and the kitchen. The secondary spaces are the living, dining, and bathrooms. On a scale of 1-10, the rigitity of the hierarchical structural relationship is 7 because it takes a couple of spaces to circulate until it has reached to its primary space. It circulates first from the kitchen to living room to dining room, upstairs to the hall and then to the bedrooms and bath. The kitchen and the dining room have a close relation in terms of their social experiences. The bedrooms are separated from each other in the second floor, but they are equal in terms of scale.

The private spaces such as the bathrooms, bedrooms, and the sleeping porches are all found in the second floor plan.

blocking diagram

The analysis for the client’s house is designed to plan a space that has equal share on both sides. Because it is designed for two women in the same age group, it is fair to have equal dimensions of space and furniture. As the residential space gets planned into a blocking, it becomes developed into a symmetrical space.

program analysis

The criteria matrix and spatial relationship data from the programming documentation becomes essential to planning a quick bubble diagram. After the bubble diagram has been produced, a block plan becomes the next step to identify its geometric quality of approximate square footage according to space.

bhajan union mission statement Hindi music is defined as a type of melody

that harmonizes the instrument and vocal together as one. It is presented in a colorful and

electric way, mostly played in Bollywood

films. The subject matter of any Hindi music is the heart of Bollywood. The music is evenly

Hindi music

balanced with the vocalist. It appeals to people through their soft tone and repetitive beats. Hindus are driven into a culture of unity. They all join in a group to share their joys and laughter’s. As part of their gathering, they ap-

preciate certain values shared and joined into a communal. Throughout the process of designing a well-developed commercial space for an accounting firm, a concept is thoroughly developed in regards to the representation of the Hindi music. Thus, a space for an accounting firm is by far developed to follow the regime of harmony and balance in which it can be found in Hindi type of music. Because the vocal sound and the tone repeat, the main theme of the song becomes the central part of radiating melodies. It is organized in a playful and formal

order in which work stations are treated equal for the use of their program.

BUBBLE DIAGRAM

LF. F

L L

Throughout the process of designing an educational center for high school and college students, the growth of education was the driven concept to design. As the growth of education shown in the conceptual diagram spreads from its branch, it takes a long journey to gain the skills and education that is needed to succeed. In the diagram, it shows how the process of growth is radiated off of the exhibition space in which all research and knowlege becomes presented to the public. Public spaces are planned on the first floor as private spaces such as the classrooms and faculty are planned on the second floor. This seperation allows students to have focus and determination.
