PHASE 01C // EDITS + DIAGRAMS Friday, Sept 02

P01a / IDENTIFICATION DRAWING EDITS

First be sure to EDIT your technical drawings one more time -- checking the following for precision, detail, and sensitivity (differentiation):
1. Lineweights
2. Density of information (detail, number and extent of construction lines)
3. Pull ALL construction lines from ALL four (4) elevations all the way across the full page
4. Make sure your use of CMYK is intentional and clear
5. Maker sure your derivations are clear and graphically demonstrative
6. Make sure the drawing stands out, not the images
7. Format all four (4) drawings horizontally, making deicing about white space etc. 8. Make sure you print 1:1 scale.


P01c / POTENTIAL DIAGRAMS

Begin with updating your P01b Composite attempt -- update the technical drawing and edit your composition per comments on Friday. Be sure to have a very INTENTIONAL reason behind how you position the drawing and the splatter. The more specific, the better. Remember that this is your foundation decision for all diagrams to come!

Using this as a base, begin the following diagram set. You will develop three (3) iterations of the following four (4) diagrams for a set of twelve (12) TOTAL DIAGRAMS. EACH diagram must demonstrate BOTH THE OBJECT (technical drawing) AND THE SPLATTER. All Diagrams must be formatted on a SQUARE sheet of paper, minimum 8"x8" maximum 14"x14". Remember that each diagram is slowly dissolving or deconstructing the object and splatter into a more diagrammatic state. Meanign they are becoming less OBJECTIVE and more SUBJECTIVE as you iterate.

01_OBJECT - "a material thing"
_Geometry (breakdown both the object and splatter, hint: use construction lines?)
_Mechanics
_Orientation
_Operation (input/output) graphic suggestion: clipping mask, collage, lines
_Form - repeat parts of the object/splatter that begin to demonstrate the importance of the formal characteristics graphic suggestion: multiply, adapt, add, opacity changes

02_PROCESS – “a series of actions”
_Time (real versus how you see time affecting the process) graphic suggestion: time stamp, plus signs, line work running horizontally
_Rate of Change
_Direction (vectors) graphic suggestion: wind maps, wind vectors
_Collection
_Rhythm/Patterns

03_INSTANCE – “a single occurance”
_Network (points and lines, web)
_Layer/Material
_Contour/Mass/Heights
_Cause and Effect
_Up to Student LAYER (freebie layer, can be repeat of previous layer using new or different information)

04_MANNER – “a way in which a thing is done”
_Formal Order / Proportion Grid (use construction lines!)
_Add/Subtract – Accelerate/Deccelerate (image pixels)
_Gradient/Intensity
_Shift/Deconstruct
_Potental(s)

Develop one sentence POSITION STATEMENT per the four (4) diagram sets. Type this, print it, and cut it out to be pinned up at the end of each diagram set.


DELIVERABELS DUE 8:40 am, Wednesday, Sept 07 - NO LATER

P01a EDITS Min 11" X Max 60" horizontally formatted sheet of paper with four (4) elevations of student's object organized and oriented. All nine (9) layers should be exhibited precisely.
P01c POTENTIAL DIAGRAMS Three (3) iterations of four (4) diagrams all formatted on the same size square piece of paper for a total of twelve (12) diagrams. Pinned up in order. Included one (1) sentence per four (4) diagrams, typed and printed.



PHASE 01B // EDITS + COMPOSITE Wednesday, August 31

After testing today, you should all keep in mind the value of HUMAN INTERACTION / OPERATION and OBJECT (ARCHITECTURE) INTERACTION / OPERATION. It makes a difference how you operate, at what RATE, with what MOTION, with what INPUT. As you begin to edit and slowly take a position about the OPERATION OF THIS OBJECT, remember to think about its POTENTIAL.

UPLOAD YOUR BOOMERANG VIDEO PUBLICALLY to our course hashtags.


P01a / IDENTIFICATION DRAWING EDITS

Rigorously EDIT your four (4) elevations per comments from today's discussion. Remember to review the NINE (9) REQUIRED LAYERS and increase ALL OF THE FOLLOWING:M

1. CONSTRUCTION LINES
2. HIDDEN INFORMATION
3. DIMENSIONS (6pt font max)
4. NOTATIONS (6pt font max)
5. DERIVATION possibilites: LIFEWORK DERIVATIONS ON ALL, IMAGES ON ALL, ONLY ONE ELEVATION HAS IMAGE, THREE HAVE LINES


Additinoally, you will all RE-FORTMAT your elevations onto one single sheet of paper, minimum 11" tall and maximum 60" wide (all horizontal formatting). When re-formatting you must consider:

1. What order do the four (4) elevations read across the page? Why?
2. How many utilize image derivation versus line derivations?why?
3. What set of construction lines do you extend across horizontally (all construction lines should extend vertically to the edge of the page)
4. How do you organize the notation justifications?
5. Do all the dimension strings line up across all four (4) elevations?
6. How much space do you set between each drawing? Around the margin?
7. What does the "white space" offer? See Missy in the White Space
8. How are your drawings oriented on the page? In terms of each other?
9, How are you using your one color - CMYK?
10. How precise are your drawings? Technical? 11. All drawings should be done 1:1 SCALE
12. Include your name, GLASSELL,ARCH 2401 in bottom corner
13. Label each elevation (Elevation 01, 02...)


P01b / COMPOSITE DRAWING

This will be a FIRST PASS at this drawing and thus can be printed on 11x17 if you wish. However, be sure to draw this 1:1 SCALE, as next week we will print this at the proper size.

Step 01: Take an aerial image of your splatter pattern. Bring into Photoshop and adjust levels for a SUPER WHITE BACKGROUND.
Step 02: Choose one (1) of your four (4) elevations drawings that you feel is the most involved in the INTERACTION LEVELS OF YOUR TESTING
Step 03: Copy ALL LAYERS ASSOCIATED WITH THAT ELEVATION AND PASTE ONTO THE SPLATTER DRAWINGS
Step 04: DO NOT CHANGE SIZE OR PROPORTION OF EITHER
Step 05: Make good choices about how you layer, blend, organize, and orient these two drawings.
Step 06: WRITE a sentence in your sketchbook about how you made this decisions.

THE BIG LESSON HERE IS HOW DO YOU MAKE CHOICES ON POSITIONING ONE DRAWING ONTO THE OTHER. Think of things like intersection points, overlays, opacities, insertions, extensions of lines, etc.

PHASE 01A // IDENTIFICATION Monday, August 29

Each of you are to find a single domestic object (handed out during studio) that inherently suggests ideas of capacity, material force, connection, and most importantly OPERATION. Make sure to be critical when choosing the exact object, as inherent complexities with the OBJECT'S SYSTEM will provide more in depth understanding of the object itself. Once you have found your object, you are to create a series of TECHNICAL DRAWINGS utilizing the layers listed below. These technical drawings should supply both technical and operative information.


/ IDENTIFICATION DRAWINGS:

The goal of this exercise is to learn how to IDENTIFY SYSTEMS OF STRUCTURE as it relates to architecture space. Think of your object in terms of ENCLOSURE, CONNECTION, SURFACE, APERATURE, STEREOTOMIC, TECTONIC. How do you employ your knowledge of line weights, line types, and overlap to define these things both technically and graphically.

Four (4) DETAILED ELEVATIONS at 1:1 scale of your object. (May be top, bottom, sides, etc.) MAKE GOOD CHOICES ON ELEVATIONS! (Each drawing should printed on a separate sheet of paper and include all layers. Paper size will vary between students, however the minimum size is 8.5 x 11)

Using AutoCAD for drafting and Adobe Illustrator for Post-Production. All linework should either be white on a saturated image background, or black on a lighter image background.


_Required Layers:

0 Image+Derivations take a flat elevation image of your object WITH A NEUTRAL BACKGROUND to easily remove the object from the background. Take two (2) additional images of EACH ELEVATION that demonstrate how the object operates - either ghost, multiply, or change the opacity of the images. (12 images total).

1 Construction Lines (to fill entire sheet of paper) Use these as one would use regulating lines -- to determine proportion, distance, depth, material thickness, overall structure -- USE THESE TO CONSTRUCT YOUR DRAWINGS.

2 Dimensions (should be in line with one another) every aspect of your object has a dimension, show it!

3 Notations identify each part via text (no larger than 8pt). Notate everything, even if you have to make up words to describe the piece.

4 Structure Identify the structure of the object, how is it supporting the object? Constructing it? Forming it? What is it's role in the SYSTEM?

5 Apertures (ap·er·ture: an opening, hole, or gap; synonyms:opening, hole, gap, slit, slot, vent, crevice, chink, crack, interstice)

6 Connection How is your object connected? How does this influence the system?

7 Operation Using solid lines with arrows, indicate how your object operates with material force.

8 Hidden Draw hidden lines (dashed) to indicate ONLY ESSENTIAL information that is hidden from view, ie. structure that is wrapped, inserted, or folded under another piece.

EACH STUDENT SHOULD CHOOSE ONLY ONE LAYER TO BE CMYK -- once decided, the entire layer should be that color. No other colors may be used.

PLEASE LOOK TO EXAMPLE OF Construction Lines and Line Saturation techniques via Mats Loves It. Use this as inspiration for the DIAGRAMMATIC AND GRAPHIC WAYS IN WHICH WE CAN USE TECHNICAL DRAWINGS!!!


/ READING:

_ATLAS OF NOVEL TECTONICS: The Judo of Cold Combustion, Sanford Kwinter / Introduction, Reiser + Umemoto

Each student must have one (1) parti diagram and some quick notes illustrating their interpretation and understanding of the reading.


ALL WORK SHOULD BE PINNED UP NOT LATER THAN 8:30 am, Wednesday, Aug 31. ANY late work will warrant an incomplete for the day.
