WRITTEN EXPLANATION I have kept the basic structure of my model, but have also made many significant changes to the design. Many of these changes have been influenced by the precedent that I chose. The first noticeable change that I made was to correct the pergola-type-beams that project outwards from the central wi-fi tower by creating proper supporting columns as well as bracing between the horizontal beams and vertical columns of the pergola.If one examines the design of the pergola carefully, one can see that each horizontal pergola beams differentiate progressively in height. Another change that I made to my design was to replace solid walls with windows instead.This way the design is appears more open and lets in more natural sunlight, but still allows protection from natural elements such as wind and rain. To create more privacy for the outside benches, I decided to put up vertical columns (which support the floor above) with horizontal slats between them. These few components is the difference to feeling part of the structure, or outside the structure. On the roof deck, which is an area more for relaxation than a homework space, can be made use of during the summer, when the elements are favourable, but also serves as a cover or protection from the elements when the weather conditions are unfavourable (e.g. in the winter) the roof deck also has proper balustrades so that people cannot fall off.
