studioarchitectura:

greenHAUS unit. It’s been a while since I posted. Took a break for a while and just started getting back into design. Anyway wanted to do an illustration similar to the ones by Mathew Borrett whose work is amazing. Spent nearly two days to do this for some reason and honestly wished I managed my time better. This illustration is essentially a 3D view of my previous post. The design is pretty straight forward and really simple, maybe too simple. One of the key features that I wanted to convey was the surplus space provided by the winter garden. Other than defining core services everything else is left for the user to inhabit and define giving as much freedom as possible. The hardest things was working out how to actually convey the function of each space and keeping the detail to the right level. It conveys the voids and provides an indication of the overarching steel structure as well as the the different thresholds involved and whats built, and whats just left as surplus space. studioarchitectura:

Some thoughts - with loose ends →

Haven’t figured this out completely yet, but something I’ve noticed is that older faculty draws a lot, draws the plan and sections for the students. Younger faculty doesn’t draw at all - tries to draw as little as possible - and it’s not because we don’t know how to draw, it’s because we believe…

This while take a while to formulate a statement.

A great topic for discussion for a round table in my opinion the idea of drawing// history of knowledge and history of ideas.

Our tutors tells us to draw. Ignore CAD etc. I agree.
