ALL OF THESE DRAWINGS ARE DUE ON MONDAY, NOV 16 FOR REVIEW. WHILE POST-PRODUCTION CAN WAIT UNTIL THANKSGIVING WEEK, YOU SHOULD EACH TAKE A PASS AT A GRAPHIC STANCE THAT I CAN APPROVE!!!!!



P03l ADA FOCUS // Enlarged Plan and Elevation Monday Nov 9

Continue working on the previous assignment, each time getting more and more detailed and refined. Be sure to double-check the previous post for layers and expectations regarding:

PLANS
SECTIONS x 3
PERSEPCTIVES x 5

NOTE: ADDED LAYERS
_Plan: Proportional Module GRID – similar to sections in Phase 02 – in CMYK. Label A,B,B,A,A or 1,2,1.5,3,etc.
_Perspectives: Keeping to Black AND White, Wes Jones Style – see updated Glassell Pinterest. You may also use CMYK at an opacity if you wish to practice your graphic styles.


/P03l Enlarged ADA Bathroom Plan +Elevation
Working directly from your 1/8" plan and/or digital 3D model, you will JUMP SCALES TO 1/2"=1'-0" and thus ADD MORE DETAIL to these drawings. Be sure to only show in plan the entire INTERIOR of the ADA Bathroom in your project (or choose one if you have multiple). This means you will need to indicate a "call out" on your plan that is a dashed, CMYK square that highlights which bathroom is being enlarged.

Working on a separate sheet at least 12" high and as wide as you need, include an enlarged plan AND enlarged INTERIOR ELEVATION of the ADA bathroom. Your Interior Elevation should elevate only the wall with the toilet on it, so we may see the grab bars etc. Please include the following layers for both drawings:
1. Grab Bars
2. Dimensions
3. Toilets / Fixtures
4. Toilet Paper
5. Turn around location
6. ADA Clear Sapce / Approach (parallel or perpendicular)
7. Any other ADA required notations as cited in the STUDIO ADA BOOKLET

These should be printed on the same piece of paper, plan to the left and interior elevation to the right. Printed at 1/2" = 1'-0" scale.


Deliverables Due WEDNESDAY at 8:30 am PINNED UP

P03k QUALITY // Experiential Iteration Fridy Nov 6

Take time to develop and assess your mid-review -- how do you filter what needs to be changed, edited, or modified at this point to STRENGTHEN YOUR PROJECT NOT START OVER. You will develop these changes through PLAN AND DIGITAL MODEL.

When one talks about QUALITY OF SPACE, one is referring to the person's experience within the space -- the experience created by architectural devices. This is true at the scale of the site, the exterior form, and the interior sequence. Look at the white board and make sure you are REASSESSING your strategy and making more specific and defined choices that reflect:
QUALITY (light, dark, happy)
SITE (wind, orientation, proximity)
CLARITY (clear architectural language of each: active, static, and transitional<,br>

Step 01: Make changes to project from your review in PLAN
Step 02: Develop a FULL digital 3D model of your ENTIRE PROJECT
Step 03: Re-cut/refine your three(3) sections
Step 04: Take five (5) perspective views with the horizon line at 6'-0" (human eye)


/P03j Plans + Sections EDITS

PLAN @ 12"x36" @ 1/8" = 1'-0" scale. Make sure all plans have the following layers:

_ADA Clear Space (approach)
_ADA turn around
_ADA Grab Bars (toilets)
_All fixtures, faucets, drains
_All handrails, stairs, ramps
_Doors
_Glazing Systems
_Linework that indicates structure (proper line weights)
_Poche @ 70% or less grey OR CMKY
_Info ABOVE AND BELOW
CMYK Layers:
_ADA Accessible Route (dashed line)
_Normal route (solid line)
_Route of your five (5) perspectives (solid line with dots = sequence)

SECTION @ 12"x12" each @ 1/8" = 1'-0" scale. Make sure all three (3) sections have the following layers: *Note that at least ONE section must cut through an ADA Ramp, and ONE a STAIR
**Note that only one section needs to have a TURBINE IN THE BACKGROUND

Black/Gray linework layers: _Construction Lines
_Ground line (new)
_Site context (approach to project, turbines, etc)
_ADA Grab Bars (toilets)
_All fixtures, faucets, drains
_All handrails, stairs, ramps
_Doors

CMYK Notations:
_Elevation Tags pulled to left side (exterior)
_Slope ratio at all ramps (ie. 1:12)
_Program label tags (for each space): Use / Square Footage / Active, Static, Transitional / Quality words (min 3)


/P03k Sequence Perspectives

Using your COMPLETED digital 3D model, you will take five (5) perspective views in sequence that demonstrate the EXPERIENTIAL QUALITY OF YOUR PROJECT – from exterior to interior. Each perspective should be printed at 7” x 7” square.

View 1: Exterior approach
View 2-4: At least one view for each type of space: Active, Static, Transitional
View 5: Up to you - can be interior or exterior and fall anywhere in the sequence

These perspectives are to focus on shadows, light, and scale peeps. Remembering this is a qualitative perspective, we will focus on creating these in BLACK, GRAY, AND WHITE similar to WES JONES style -- SEE DONNER CABIN example by JPA. Or an updated Glassell Pinterest page.

P03j PLANS + SECTIONS CONT. // Orthographic Drawings Mon Nov 2

We need to do a BIG PUSH THIS WEEK to develop your projects -- remembering that you will want to focus on plan heavily these next two days, articulating as much as possible. Use the sections and mass tape model as reinforcers to help your further understand the spatial consequences of your design choices. Everyone needs to be at a solid place on Wednesday with all the following deliverables:


/ P03j Plans and Section EDITS

IN ADDTION TO LAYERS LISTED IN PREVIOUS POST:

_PLAN printed to scale on a 12" x 36" sheet of paper:
1. New Topo lines - showing how you are grading your project
2. Approach - use the 36" sheet of paper to show how you approach your project from the site!
3. Elevations tags - interior and exterior
4. Section tags - showing all three section cuts on plan
5. Check scale - make sure you are printed to a scale
6. Check ADA - must have turnarounds (either circle or T)
7. Handrails - extending past last stair by 12"
8. Shower drains

_SECTION three (3) sections each printed on 12"x12" sheet of paper:
1. Add one turbine to scale in the section -- lighter lines indicate farther away. 2. Ground line
3. All line work + poche for cut only
4. EVALUATE AND DESIGN THICK AND THINK!!!!!


/ P03k Mass Tape Model

Develop a mass tape model -- this means only showing what a bird would see flying over your CORE STATION. How have you formed your program? Your project? How does one approach it? How big is it? How does it sit in the ground? These should be fairly quick and help you develop just the FORM OF THE PROJECT, MEANING THE MASS not the interior, as it works WITH THE PLAN to help further develop and refine your project. The tape model should meet the following criteria:
1. Show ground (pink foam)
2. Show mass (foam core, museum board, chipboard)
3. Be taped shotty -- though mass is precise
4. Just get your ideas out there! Don't try to be perfect!
5. Address approach
6. Model should be at original scale -- same as your drawings. Either 1/4" or 1/8" and fit within a 14"x14" square generally.


/ P03 Big Idea

Continue to develop your big idea AND PARTI DIAGRAM for Wednesday, as each of you MUST HAVE AN ITERATION PRINTED FOR WEDNESDAY. This iteration should address the following:
1. The "fourth paragraph" used as your first -- how do you introduce your project as a whole? What is the project's position on architecture?
2. Wind - VIP how are you dealing with wind either through grading your project down, up, or suspended -- the direction of your masses -- the space between them. How fast is the wind moving where you have cited it? 3. Siting / Site -- how does this add to the site and thus wind farm you have created - blend with your narrative.
4. Program -- keeping with active, static, and transitional slowly add SEQUENCE TO THE CONVERSATION.

P03j PLANS + SECTIONS // Orthographic Drawings Fri Oct 30

You should all take time to iterate your tape models and thus push this pass as much as possible. Remember, though well crafted these are TAPE MODELS and should add the ability to make changes after our discussions yesterday if necessary.

Remember that this is not about reinventing your projects, but about developing them into a clear architectural language – mass, ground, circulation, and program. Do no try ot separate roof from wall in your minds, but rather formulate your big idea to include a solution for all components in your project. Go back to your phase 02 and make sure that you are still moving in the same vein -- not against it!!!


/ P03j Plans + Sections

Each of the following drawings should be the same scale, going back to the scale of your drawdels -- either 1/4" or 1/8" only -- and be printed on white paper with black line work. We will post-produce Monday. ALL LAYERS MUST BE PRESENT FOR MONDAY!!!

_PLAN: You will each go back to the scale of your drawdels – either 1/8” or 1/8” only – and develop a DRAFTED plan drawing. This is no longer a diagram, but an actual orthographic building plan. Be sure to articulate all of the following conditions with clear intention and knowledge about how your decisions affect program, space, sequence, and mass:
0. Construction lines
1. Thick and thin poche – make sure you have a language that facilitates your project’s wall variations of thick and thin.
2. Openings/Doors – you may begin to apply doors, but do NOT have to have more than one (1) door at the entry for security. All doors MUST BE DESIGNED BY YOU and must not be a block or standard dimensions. No swing doors.
3. Apertures/Glazing – you may not employ glazing systems but remember that these should be sculpted by spatial demands rather than just “a glass wall”. Glazing should be assumed as 1” thick and show frame, sill (below), glass (1”), and critically analyze where the wall hits the frame – and especially where the glazing sits within the wall!!!!
4. All fixtures – sinks, toilets, benches, nooks and hooks (for clothes or towels), shower heads, shower drains, mattresses (no free standing beds allowed), and additional fixtures or built-in furniture. (Faucets may be blocks found at kholer.com)
5. Elevation tags that indicate the heights of each level (+0, +1, etc). This should be clear on both interior and exterior.
6. Stairs and Ramps – DESIGNED!!!!
7. Handrails
8. Above and Below information – think about how your roof or ceiling changes above you, if your walls cant, what’s happening below with the floor changes or topo changes – all of this should be shown in your plan.
9. ADA turn radius located in bathrooms only
10. TOPO lines (exterior) both those of the original site plan AND your constructed site conditions
11. North arrow and scale (Both graphic and text)
12. Include a label that states title of project, TOTAL SQUARE FOOTAGE OF PROJECT, your name, my name, ARCH 2501 FA15

THIS SHOULD BE THE BULK OF YOUR TIME SPENT, and should be one (or two plans if previously discussed) extremely well developed and well detailed floor plan to scale. We now move to white paper and black line work. This DOES NOT HAVE TO BE POST-PRODUCED YET.


_SECTION: From your plan you may either develop a 3D digitial model to cut sections from or draft three (3) sections – one longitudinal and two transverse. These sections do not need to be as detailed as your plan at this point and thus should only demonstrate the following:
0.Construction lines
1. Thick and thin poche – walls, floor (foundation), ceiling/roof, interior and exterior
2. Ramps and stairs – clear indication of your designed level changes. Correct dimensions – remember codes are a minimum!!!!!
3. Handrails
4. Three scale peeps - min
5. Correct level and topo changes

These are simple sections and should only focus on interior and exterior space, mass and form, thick and thin, scale, and correct circulation. At this point these do not need to show information beyond, but rather focus on the moment you have chosen to cut through. MAKE GOOD CHOICES ABOUT WHERE THESE SECTIONS ARE CUT!!!! ALL LAYERS MUST BE PRESENT FOR MONDAY!!!

_P03I Siting Images Image of tape model pinned to site plan
_P03 Big Idea + PARTI Half of a 8.5 x 11 page evolving your big idea IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS MONDAY YOU WILL GET AN INCOMPLETE


P03I CICULATION // Mass Models Wed Oct 28

Note: We will ALL meet in studio at 7:30 on Thursday, Oct 29!!!

Continue to work and develop your plan diagrams, noting that you may take more time with one over the others but should leave yourself open to hybridization. Take the time to think about thick versus thin, scale of space, circulation paths, and apertures.

Add to plan diagram: Assumed ADA Route line (like sequence line) - remembering that ADA route does not have to be the same path as your sequence path. Only one toilet, one changing room, etc must be ADA.


/ P03I Circulation + Mass Models
Using EITHER A HYBRID of two plan diagrams or choosing one single plan diagram, you will now develop one scheme of your project through a massing model. This mass model, should be a WELL-CRAFTED TAPE MODEL and will demonstrate how your architecture touches the ground, the sky, and provides circulation.

This mass model should be DOUBLE THE SCALE OF YOUR PLAN DIAGRAM. For those who worked at 1/8", your model will be 1/4" -- for those at 1/4" your model will be 1/2". You model should feature all of the following:
1. Pink foam ground condition
2. Chipboard floor/foundation that shows circulation both INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR (meaning all flat slabs, ramps, and starrs)
3. Foam Core/Museum Board "mass" of your project that focuses only on the EXTERIOR, including openings. No interior partitions required. 4. Pink foam ground + chipboard floor/circulation should be glued together
5. Foam Core/Museum Board "mass" should sit securely on the ground but be removable

FOCUS ON MASS, EXTERIOR ARTICULATION, APERATURES (LIGHT), OPENINGS (WALK), AND GROUND (CIRCULATION)!!!! This is a big step, take time with it.

ADDITIONALLY We will now complete your siting exercise by taking a picture of your finished tape model in BOTH PLAN AND SECTION and scaling it to around 1/32"=1'0". Take an image of your tape model and print ON A SEPARATE SHEET OF PAPER (cut down), and pin to the site plan -- like pin-the-tail-on-the donkey. Do not print your base plan/section with the model images included. Use the pinning techique to move this image around and try many different locations.


/ CAROLINA will compile the ADA teamwork into a "booklet" for us on Friday.

P03G+H PROGRAMMING // Continues!!!!! Mon Oct 27

LOOK TO PREVIOUS POST FOR MORE DETAIL UNDERSTANDING OF THE ORIGINAL ASSIGNMENT, THIS POST ONLY ADDES CLARITY AND BREAKS DOWN LAYERS.

/ P03g Spatial Typology Drawdel EDITS
We will continue with the assignment below, further editing and developing your DRAWDELS to reflect new changes and new understandings from you original program diagrams. This means adding the following to the drawled:
_Use each to explore different ideas
_Show level changes (either interior or exterior
_Show ceiling or roof condition in some manner
_Integrate piano wire if necessary
_THICK AND THIN!!!!!!

*REMINDER: Step 01: Siting You will start by SITING each iteration within your site plan -- where does each wish to sit and why? Take an image of your drawdel and print ON A SEPARATE SHEET OF PAPER, and pin to the site plan -- like pin-the-tail-on-the donkey. Do not print your base plan with the drawdel images included. Use the pinning techique to move this image around and try many different locations.


/ P03h Plan Diagrams Siting + Sizing EDITS
AFTER you finish your drawle, continue (or start) developing you plan diagrams. Remember to avoid TUMOR WALLS, RAMPS, STAIRS, OR SPACES (those that seem tacked on the the side and not integrated into the form or spaces you are developing). Make sure all spaces are well integrated using level changes and thick versus thin. This should be a further exploration of the spaces you developed in your drawdel but should DEMONSTRATE NEW IDEAS, DEVELOPMENTS, AND MORE REFINED SPACES.

Remember that the following ARE NOT ALLOWED:
1. Cooridors
2. Punch doors or windows
3. Full glass rooms/atriums
4. All walls same thickness

Make sure that your plan diagram has the following layers, and remember that it is closer to an orthographic plan drawing than a diagram now, but should still retain the diagrammatic qualities of schematic design.

CMYK Inforamtion:
1. CMYK Drawdel perimeter line (this is a single line that shows where you have come from) - this should stay untouched during your plan diagram. It is the farthest back ground layer.
2. CMYK boxes that show only the toilet, sink, shower head locations. Meaning you can delete the major program boxes but make sure add very specific ones that show benches for dressing, toilets, etc. This diagrammatic layer is intended to show specific programmatic elements rather than space.
3. CMYK elevation tags - interior and exterior to indicate level changes. 4. CMYK Sequence/Path/Circulation

WHITE OR BLACK information
1. Base line work - this should show your new walls, include THICK AND THIN
2. Poche - poche your plan cutlines, think about THICK AND THIN
3. All information ABOVE (dashed line) AND BELOW (solid line)
4. Base site plan layers (meaning all layers where you have sited each of the three (3) iterations), including topo, wind and elevation tags, flickers, access roads if applicable etc.
5. Apertures (sight) and openings (walk) - shown by breaking the poche
6. Stairs and Ramps (first pass)
7. Label of specific space (ie. Showers), including sqare footage)
8. Scale, North Arrow, Name, Iteration 1,2,3 etc


ALL OF THE FOLLOWING ARE EXPECTED ON WEDNESDAY!!!!!!
Deliverables Due MONDAY at 8:30 am PINNED UP
_P03 ADA Teamwork Two (2) 11x17 boards (min) + one (1) painters tape mock-up per team - will be PRESENTED

P03G+H PROGRAMMING // Drawdel + Plan Fri Oct 23

Before you begin the next assignments, each of you should make sure that ALL PREVIOUS ASSIGNMENTS ARE EDITED PROPERLY and all are caught up. Any site work (without your CORE STATION in the image!!!!) can now be printed on coated bond if you wish. If you are confident, you may also print your precedent index, diagrams, and device iterations as well. We are moving FORWARD FAST so get ready!

/ P03 ADA Teamwork
Each team listed below is responsible for at least two (2) 11x17 sheets of paper well organized graphically that demonstrates and records the ADA codes for their category. Additionally, each team must purchases BLUE PAINTERS TAPE and do one (1) mock up on the floor of the studio or the hallway (for accessible route) right outside our studio.
TEAM SHOWERS: Garrett + Stephen
TEAM SINKS: Raya + Josh + Tre
TEAM ACCESSIBLE ROUTE (routes, ramps, stairs): Bobby Brown + Levi
TEAM TOILETS: Katie + Romina + Brittany
TEAM DRESSING (water source, door swings, dressing): Angela + Tyler + Darrion

/ P03g Spatial Typology Drawdels
Using your UBER DENSE AND RICH 12x12 diagrammatic iterations, you will begin to develop each of the three (3) iterations separately, as three (3) schemes of your CORE STATION. We will first begin this process by drawdelin the inverse of the CMYK, making sure to not follow your line work, but rather further defining the spatial overlaps, adjacencies, and segregation you have developed in your programmatic diagrams.

Each of your drawdels should start by mounted you coated bond programmatic diagrams on 12x12 foam core. You will then drawdel up or back with white museum board only, taking care to understand the consequences of the following conditions:
_Where is your plan cut and what spatial qualities are within that cut
_Do you build all up, all back, or both, why?
_When drawdeling the inverse, think about whether the background is an EDGE (WALL), VOID (EXTERIOR SPACE), OPENING (WALK), OR APERTURE (SEE)
_Drawdel just the inverse of the CMYK, but there may be moments of overlap you want to use to explore roof conditions, this is great!
_How do you begin to define visual space versus physical space in the drawdel?
_Do some roofs insert into other spaces? Drawdel this.
_The drawdel is intended to replace sectional studies, make sure you understand how your core station is developing in this drawdel
_This is exploratory, meaning you may drawled the ground if you wish to study certain conditions
_These should be well crafted drawdels and demonstrate sectional space - quality and quantity.
_VIP: Do not drawdel "extra space" meaning if the plan does not have CMKY on it, this is up for grabs to chisel and massage your perimeter walls. Use the CMYK ONLY TO FORM THE DRAWDEL, not the linework!!!!!

/ P03h Plan Diagrams Siting + Sizing
AFTER COMPLETING THE DRAWDEL translate what you have learned about each iteration into a more refined plan diagram. Remember, this is NOT A TIME FOR SUPER DETAIL, BUT FOR SPATIAL AND PROGRAMMATIC DEVELOPMENT. We will choose one of thees three to detail further, so don't take that time now!

Step 01: Siting You will start by SITING each iteration within your site plan -- where does each wish to sit and why? Take an image of your drawdel and print ON A SEPARATE SHEET OF PAPER, and pin to the site plan -- like pin-the-tail-on-the donkey. Do not print your base plan with the drawdel images included. Use the pinning techique to move this image around and try many different locations.

Step 02: Sizing Reflect upon your drawdel, how have you begun to change the spaces per program? The transitions? The opening and aperture? How can you NOW FURTHER DEVELOP THIS? How has your siting choice changed the orientation, then north direction, the light quality, the entry and exit points? Double check your square footages per program -- remembering that you can alter and substitute certain area of others if needed.
_Check the area of each program using the drawdel form (not just program boxes) against the program statement
_You do not need to greatly change your sizing AT THIS MOMENT we will develop this more next week. Just make sure you know what each square footage is!
_It's ok if you are smaller or bigger, just use this step to undestand the proportion of spaces your have
_Work at either 1/16", 1/8" or 1/4" scale
_All three (3) iterations should still fit on a 12"x12"sheet of paper

Remember that this task should generate new edges (walls), new line work (perimeter), and new spaces. Keeping with the following layers:
0. Base linework = all new interior and perimeter walls/edges (poche)
1. All information ABOVE AND BELOW
2. Include all base site plan layers (meaning all layers where you have sited each of the three (3) iterations), including topo, wind and elevation tags, flickers, etc.
3. All CMYK program boxes and appropriate opacities - all from program statement should be accounted for
4. Apertures (sight) and openings (walk)
5. Stairs and Ramps (first pass)
6. Height tags (setting +0 at the entry) for interior and exterior space
7. CMYK Sequence/Path/Circulation
8. Scale, North Arrow, Name, Iteration 1,2,3 etc

P03F PROGRAMMING // Proximity and Space Wed Oct 21

/ P03d+e Index and Program Diagram EDITS Double check the following, looking toward's TYLER'S as the graphic standard for the diagrams (index is up to student).
_Plan and Section should be oriented left to right, with threshold parti's small on the farthest right side
_No ghosted image (unless told personally), instead create "base line work" for both plan and section (light line weight)
_Only all black or all white backgrounds for diagrams
_Have XS,S,M tags clearly on diagrams
_Section base lifework should be a heavier line weight than plan
_Only use CMYK on plan part of diagram (may pooch section in black or white if you choose)
_North arrow on all three!
_Have a reason/rule set for how you deiced what is "edge" what is "visibility" etc. Do no just highlight all walls
_index should be clear and show graphic intention
_Could add a "program scale" as seen here by Rem Koolhaas for the Seattle Public Library.

/ P03f Device Programming Diagrams
For our NEXT assignment, you will begin to iterate the programmatic relationships within YOUR OWN STRUCTURE ONLY (meaning we only move forward with the "S" project form here on out). You should take what you have learned via discussion, your precedent studies, and you BIG IDEA bout program to move forward.

The next task will focus on your understanding of Active, Static, Transitional, and Sequence/Path through assessing how the following programmtic elements apply to your project. Remember, use your definitions to help you make decisions about what program fits wit what type of space, do not just throw these in:

The Toilet
The Shower
The Changing Room
The Sink
The Water Source
The Sleep Pod

You need to decided how many people will be occupying this at once, how many toilets, how many shoes, how many pods, etc. and why! Refer to your narrative about you Wind Farm to make these decisions, as that is YOUR CLIENT. Once you know what use fits what type of space, you can finish filling in your index. After you make these decisions begin developing three (3) ITERATIVE DIAGRAMS that utilize the same layers and type of diagrammatic approach as you used for the previous exercise. Note that this step will only FOCUS ON PLAN.

Begin your three diagrams by taking the "base plan" you developed for your Precedent Programming and enlarging it to fit on the 12"x12" sheet of paper (plan only). Take all layers discussed. From here you will ITERATE YOUR PROGRAM, KEEPING IN MIND THAT ELEMENTS SHOULD EXPLORE overlap, adjacency, segregation, isolation, etc. BE SPECIFIC!!!!! Devlelop three (3) iterations -- either using the same base plan to start from each time, or using the previous iteration as the base start. All three diagrams should have the following layers:

FIRST DEVELOP AT LEAST TWO (2) trash paper passes per iteration before beginning your digital!

_Each Iteration should be labeled: Iteration 01, Iteration 02, Iteration 03
_Be too a scale, whatever scale works best for your project (either 1/8" or 1/4") - include both graphic and text scale
_North arrow
_Base line work of base plan (same base line work on all three diagrams)
_CMYK Edges (heavy line)
_CMYK Visibility (dashed arrow)
_CMYK Active-Static-Transitional Spaces (CMKY rectangles at three (3) different opacities)
_White or black: Sequence path(s) with Entry and Exit - should have minimum six (6) dots that indicate stopping points
_Thresholds
_Openings to walk through, openings to see through
_Notations: Each of you spaces should be notated, use the following example:
Active Space
2 Toilets, 2 people
Quiet, dark space
Small openings to the outside

Do no try to be perfect and trace exactly the rectangle boxes of ACTIVE, STATIC, AND TRANSITION, but more so exaggerate and extend these boxes to reinforce how the spaces OVERLAP, SEGREGATE, INTEGRATE, INTERSECT, CONNECT, ISOLTE, ETC. Make NEW DECISIONS EACH TIME ABOUT HOW THESE SPACES WORK TOGETHER.

P03D+E PRECEDENT // Indexing + Diagramming Program Mon Oct 19

/ P03a+b+c EDITS
Continue to edit your site plan, section, infographics, and details per our discussion today. DO NOT include the orientation iterations for your device, leave this for the weekend. Just focus on the BASE SITE CONDTIONS. Additionally, please note:
_Layout yard should be a dashed fence line and NOT include turbine parts
_Monitor station should not be square or rectangular (see Darrion's
_Include all elevation tags (top lines) and wind MPH tags in plan
_Min road = 12'-0", Max road = 24'-0"
_NOTATE, NOTATE, NOTATE!!! See Josh's


/ P03d Precedent INDEX
To begin understanding programming, you will each use two (2) precedents + your own device to begin to MAKE CHANGES AND NEW CHOICES regarding the Active, Static, Transitional spaces through learning about SEQUENCING!!!!

This assignment will focus on XS, S, AND M structures:
XS = 100sf or less, found on your own / S = your Phase 03 device / M = precedent listed below:

Kunsthal by OMA - Tyler
Yokohoma Port Terminal by FOA - Josh
Olympic Sculpture Park by Weiss Manfredi - Tre
Therme Vals by Peter Zumthor - Katie
Rachofsky House by Richard Meier - Carolina
Rolling Huts by Olson Kundig Architects - Brittany
Blur Building by Diller and Scofidio - Romina
Blades Residenc by Morphosis - Levi
Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe - Angela
Gropius House by Walter Gropius - Bobby Brown
Rietveld Shroder House by Gerrit Rietveld - Stephen
Prada Epicenter NYC by OMA - Garrett
E1027 by Eileen Gray - Raya
Madrid Social Housing by Morphosis - Darrion

Using these three (3) structures you will set up a programmatic iNDEX @ 8" X 36". Each structure -- using the tags XS,S, and M -- will have their own row of data that include the following columns (see whiteboard in studio for more detail):
01_TAGSTop line: include Name of Project, Architect, Location, Year Built. Bottom line: Two (2) sources you used via Chicago or MLA format below. For your project, include the type of facility below.
01_IMAGE Use a black and white image of the interior or exterior -- no drawings
02_SEQUENCE Develop a simple line parti that demonstrates the type of sequencing PATHS each project has -- does it have one entry, one exit? Same entry and exit? Multiple paths? Paths that cross? Include dots for the number of spaces crossed (see whiteboard)
03_ACTIVE Top line: Number of active spaces in project / Uses of active spaces (SPECIFIC program) / Place in Sequence. Bottom line: Definition of active space in that project.
04_STATIC Top line: Number of static spaces in project / Uses of static spaces (SPECFIC program) / Place in Sequence. Bottom line: Definition of static space in that project.
05_TRANSITIONAL Top line: Number of transitional spaces in project / Uses of transitional spaces (SPECFIC program) / Place in Sequence. Bottom line: Definition of transitional space in that project.
06_THRESHOLDS Develop a series of parti diagrams (only single lines) that shows the various thresholds for each project
07_CONCEPT What is the Big Idea, Position, Agenda, Concept, or each project in 3-5 sentences.


/ P03e Precedent PROGRAMMING
AFTER YOU HAVE COLLECTED AND FORMATTED YOUR INDEX DATA, then you will move forward into diagramming each of the projects in the following manner:

Formatted on a 12"x12" square piece of paper, you will develop each of the there (3) projects - XS,S,M - into three separate diagrams. These diagrams should be sure to have the XS,S,M tag in one of the four corners and be a black to grey background. For example, the XS project = 1--% black background, S = 80%, and M=40%. Your call.

EACH OF THE THREE SHOULD HAVE THE FOLLOWING:
_Be too a scale, whatever scale works best for your project + composition on the paper - include both graphic and text scale
_North arrow
_Ghosted line work of plan on the left hand side of the paper
_Ghosted long section directly next to the plan
_Three call outs that identify three (3) important thresholds of the project - include parti's of each to the right side of the paper
_Plan Diagram Layers CMYK: Edges (heavy line), Visibility (dashed arrow), Active-Static-Transitional Spaces (CMKY rectangles at three (3) different opacities), Sequence path(s), Entry and Exit
_Section Diaram Layers CMYK: Single heavy line that follows the outline of the CUT PLANE of the section

Do no try to be perfect and trace exactly the rectangle boxes of ACTIVE, STATIC, AND TRANSITION, but more so exaggerate and extend these boxes to reinforce how the spaces OVERLAP, SEGREGATE, INTEGRATE, INTERSECT, CONNECT, ISOLTE, ETC. Especially with your project, as this is the first pass at making a flood plan, thus think about how you can learn from your precedents and yourself to make NEW DECISIONS ABOUT HOW THESE SPACES WORK TOGETHER.

13. Tell YOUR STORY!!!

/ P03b Wind Turbine Section Detail
Using the wind turbine you cut a section through in your Site Section, continue to add information. As you are increasing scale, the level of technical information, notations, dimensions, and detail should increase. This should include the grass land, ground line, and below grade information.
_Use a black sky and white ground.
_Include primary wind direction
_Include wind data found for one turbine including various change in directions, rotary diameter, wind movement through/around/under/over the turbine
_Include one (1) scale figure
_Be sure to include thickness of the tower (meaning it's made of something, show it in your cut, not just a single line)
_All ladders, platforms, and rails also have thickness!
_Transformers that sit adjacent to the turbine
_Concrete pad/slab that surround the turbine (grass does not go right up to the edge)
_How often does it run?
Dimension and notate everything!

/ P03c Orientation Iterations
Take at least two (2) images of your final model from Phase 02 (or favorite drawdel from Phase 01) - this should be a clean, straight on image (no perspective). Take these in the football so you have proper lighting, and a black backdrop. One image in plan and one image in side elevation. Choose the side elevation that you feel is the most successful! These images should then be turned in to black and white images with the background removed.

Once this has been completed, begin to put your device into your site plan and site section -- moving it around on site, transforming it slightly, and moving it in terms of ground condition. Be INTENTIONAL AND SPECFIC WITH WHY YOU ARE PLACING THIS DEVICE WHERE YOU ARE! Consider the following:
_What conditions do I want to capitalize on? Why?
_Does my structure want to relate to the turbines? The access road? The monitor station?
_How will wind be affected by my structure? How will my structure be affected by the wind?
_Does my structure want to sit deep within the ground? Suspend above? Somewhere in between? Why?
_How do shadows play a role in my decisions? Sound? Birds?
_What is my conceptual drivers for placing my device where I have?
_Do cardinal directions whiten my orientation change my structures performance?

You should place the device six (6) times within your site section and plan (these locations should match up in both plan and section!) Once you have completed all six iterations, you will notate each of the six (in both plan and section) as well as change the opacity of each iteration as follows: _Iteration you choose = 100% opacity
_Other five (5) iterations should change opacity (gradient) from least successful (20% opacity) to most successful (80% opacity).
_Each iteration should be notated with at least one PRO and one CON of this location.
_Include able "Iteration 01" "iteration 02" etc.

P03A+B SITE! // CONDITIONAL EXPLORATIONS Wed Oct 14

Hopefully you learned A LOT from our tours yesterday about wind turbines, wind energy, and wind farm design. You will now design YOUR OWN SITE CONDITION BASED ON THIS KNOWLEDGE. Remember that as designers you should take a POSITION, OR BIG IDEA, about you wind farm site condition in particular, defining it's characteristics like topography, density, type of facility, orientation, and general location. Using the next three (3) tasks, develop your own WIND FRAM DESIGN to use as your site condition for Phase 03.


/ P03a Wind Data INFOGraphics
For this first task, you should use the website we received, West Texas Mesonet, and research data that demonstrates various wind conditions. Remember that your "site" is designed by you and should reflect a HYPOTHETICAL WIND FARM CONDITION, not AN ACTUAL WIND FARM. Thus you can mis and match your findings to suit your design goals. Additionally, you should look at Glassell Pinterest Index+Mapping, especially noting infographic ideas Data Graphics.

REGIONAL: Focus your data collection on West Texas and the following ways to map and index the wind patterns within the region:
_Primary Wind Direction(s)
_Wind speeds
_Variations in wind patterns per day, month, year
_Assumed wind energy production rates

SITE: These should be arranged in a INFOGRAPHIC FASHION, also citing:
_Latitude and Longitude of YOUR DESIGNED PROJECT (general)
_Type of wind farm you area developing - prototypes, testing center, energy production site, etc
_Annual temperature spead in your area

All of which are formatted on a 8"x36" sheet of paper, landscape orientation.


/ P03b Site Section + Plan

_Site Section CONDITION
Using a section drawing, further develop your site condition based on your own observations during our field trip as well as the data research you did for you infographics. Design your WIND FARM SITE CONDITION to facilitate your goals and observations about wind, wind farms, turbines, or wind energy. You will later develop a BIG IDEA about you site, thus it's good start prioritizing different conditions now. Everyone's site condition SHOULD BE DIFFERENT, as they should set you up to facilitate your goals, not actual demands.
Site must be GRASSLAND, relatively flat but could have some small topographical changes - max 5' change in elevation height. Turbines can be tiny (as seen at Reese) or small (as seen at the Wind Museum), but not larger than max 230’-0” for wind turbine design (includes tower, nexus, and blade length) - use the turbine at the Wind Museum and dimensions given by Coy to design your own.

Layers to include:
_Minimum two (2) wind turbines
_Full section cut of one (1) turbine, including foundation below grade - turbine should be a line drawing and show inside (ladders and platforms and doors)
_Dimensions and Rotary Diameter for the turbine you cut your section through
_Black Sky
_White Ground
_Grassland (see image)
_Turbine images in background demonstrating YOUR WIND FARM DESIGN - how dense? How sparse?
_Notations citing site or turbine observations
_At least three (3) Wind Zones (different wind speeds)
_Include PRIMARY WIND DIRECTION as an arrow
_Time oriented notations (ie. more wind at night, etc)
_Spacing between turbines
_Scale (both text and graphic)
_Label: Name of Wind Farm, type of facility (testing, private, public, prototypes, city, etc.), Average wind speed, Average wind direction
_Notate which turbines work at what time intervals - may catalog them as A, B, C, etc.
_Include ONE MET TOWER (image or line drawing)
_Mostly flat but slight changes in topography

This example only shows graphic language and a few layers, you will have WAY MORE NOTATIONS AND TECHNICAL DRAWING ASPECTS.

_Site Plan CONDITION
Using your SITE SECTION, develop a SITE PLAN of your wind farm condition @ 1/32 =1'-0" scale. This means that the 8"x36" piece of paper is 256'x1,152' -- plenty of room to work with. You should set the turbine you cut your section through FIRST and design the others around that. Again, remember you are setting a condition -- so you wind farm could be for testing (thus closer turbines) for actual energy production ( correct ratio of separation) etc.
Drawing should be 1/32" = 1'-0" scale and be formatted on an 8"x 36" sheet of paper, landscape orientation.

Layers that must be included:
_North Arrow
_Scale (both text and graphic)
_Label: Name of Wind Farm, type of facility (testing, private, public, prototypes, city, etc.), Average wind speed, Average wind direction
_One access road
_Minimum five (5) turbines shown in plan
_Include full plan drawing or aerial image of all turbines (tower, nexus, blades) - do not just show a dot - include dimensions on only ONE TURBINE (SAME AS SECTION CUT)
_Shadow Flicker zone for all turbines
_Spacing dimensions, connect all turbines with a thin dashed line and indicate spacing dimension - ie. 150'-0"
_Primary wind direction
_Wind speed tags (using a plus sign and wind speed, call out at least 20 points in your plan and cite their wind direction) For example, right behind a turbine you may put +2mph, then 20' away from that same turbine you may put +15mph.
_Topo lines (for slight changes in topography) _Black ground, white turbines and white lines

See my email for example. This plan should reflect the condition of YOUR DESIGNED WIND FARM, meaning is this a dense testing facility or a sparse energy production facility? Why?

Using your BASE AXON (which means an axon that is not cut), develop a diagrammatic series that calls out certain systems within your project. This means that the axon should stay black and white and you will use CMYK to highlight the following information:
1. Open/Closed States same as Section Axon approach - black and white linework for one state, CMYK for the other
2. Resultant Spaces ghosted fills
3. Mass/Plane/Line could just change the color of the lifework to CMYK on the base axon for this one
4. Structure / Mechanism highlight the structure and demonstrate operative lines or direction
5. Thresholds
6. Interior/Exterior
7. Circulation Pathsat least three (3) showing various ways to activate your device - solid line, dashed line, change of line weight, etc
8. Scale insert at least six (6) scale peeps into the axon
9. Module Using the module of proportion you developed on your section drawings, overlay this onto your axon drawings only focusing on the two sides (or faces) that were developed in your section. Extend these lines to the edge of the page in the downward direction and side direction.
Each Parti should be 4"x4" which makes the entire series 36" x 4" tall -- do not cut these or have a line dividing them, but rather have them read as a whole series. For an example, see Leo Martinez work from 2501, Fall 2014.

/ P02j Special Drawing
This is different per student and should be something that is easy to construct and/or can be extracted from your previous drawings, Rhino model, or images taken of your final model. Options could be a plan drawing, diagram, image perspective, image collage, extra section or axon, etc.

/ P02k Final Model
Your final model should be underway at this point, as if you are laser cutting this should be done, glued, and ready for paint. The following items must be included in your final model: 1. Ground should be painted CMYK MDF.
2. Device should be white museum board.
3. Additional materials need approval: wood, steel, cardboard, etc. 4. Include AT LEAST SIX (6) SCALE PEEPS in your model -- this is made by cutting a stick or piece of piano wire to 6'-0" AT THE SCALE OF YOUR MODEL and gluing the sticks to assorted locations within the model.
5. Model MUST BE KINETIC.

Deliverables Due FRIDAY at 8:30 am PINNED UP

PROGRESS. ANYTHING YOU WISH TO HAVE FEEDBACK ON, printed on shotty paper or tiled. We will discuss paper sizes, graphic clarity, line weights, line types, model progress, and BIG IDEA!!! Remember this will be the last time I can see you work until the review!



P02F+G AX-ON, AX-OFF // CONTINUES Friday Oct 02

KEEP GOING!!!!! Be sure to make good choices about your axons and tape models as you move forward, meaning test print to check the legibility of your open versus closed state. See posts below for more description on these assignments.

_AXON REMINDERS:
Remember that you can make your own decision about how to demonstrate the two states. Possible graphic languages:
_Black and white section/axon open state, ghosted section/axon cyan closed state
_Black and white section/axon open state, ghosted full cyan closed state
_Black and white section/axon open state, dashed line (wireframe) section/axon closed state
_Black and white section/axon open state, CMYK components that move and include dashed CMYK line of where they move (see Darrion's)
_NOTE THAT EITHER STATE CAN BE BLACK AND WHITE, THE ABOVE IS FOR EXAMPLE ONLY.
_NO CUT GROUND (POCHE): Either no ground line at all, a single ground line (solid or dashed), or Tre's example.

How do these decisions change how you understand your project? How do they change how others understand it? These should be clear, legible, and employ SUPER SEXY LINE WEIGHTS!!!!!


_TAPE MODEL REMINDERS:
Design your ground TO RESPOND TO YOUR DEVICE. Note the following:
_Use the foam to design your ground, do not just copy your Rhino Model exactly -- or visa versa.
_Allow the ground to have holes, valleys, cut away from the model, extend out from the model. Meaning don't default to a square or rectangle "plot" of ground.
_LOOK AT RAYA'S FOR WAYS TO BREAK DOWN THE GROUND SO THE PRIORITY IS THE DEVICE!!!!!
_For the Tape Model any material is up for grabs -- however use PINK FOAM for the ground

PUSH HARD THIS WEEKEND THROUGH DESIGN, THIS IS NOT A TIME FOR MERE PRODUCTION OR REPRESENTATION BUT MORE SO TO DESIGN THROUGH EACH OF THESE MEDIUMS AND ASSIGNMENTS. Note that nothing should match -- meaning the axons should differ from the sections from the tape model, etc.


Deliverables Due FRIDAY at 8:30 am PINNED UP
DO NOT PRINT ANYTHING ON NICE PAPER YET, WE WILL MODIFY PAPER SIZES NEXT WEEK.

_P02 Big Idea One Page printed stream of consciousness or ramble that further developed your big idea from Phase 01 as it now applies to Phase 02. If HAVEN'T ALREADY PRINTED, EMAIL TO GLASSELL BY SUNDAY NIGHT.

P02F+G AX-ON, AX-OFF // CONTINUES Wednesday Sept 30

After today's work day you should all be well aware of how to move forward and continue the assignment at hand. This means you should double check the following:

Sections:
_Should I edit my sections for contnet?(Spaces)
_Do my sections have all layers listed in previous posts?
_How are my line weights in my sections?
Axo or Tape:
_Have I made changes in my Rhino or Tape model from the sections? (should be a yes answer.)
_Are these changes strong and clear?
_What three (3) sides or faces should I use for my section axonometrics?Why?
_Where do I take the section cuts on the axonometric to demonstrate the most information about my project?

As you work through these questions, remember to ITERATE THROUGH EACH DRAWING TYPE, AS EACH DRAWING SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND NEW ABOUT YOUR PROJECT!!!!!


/ P02g Section Axonometric CONTINUES
Use the previous post to understand more about the BASE AXON you are creating. This means that you should work intentionally and creatively on your 3D Rhino model to ensure the most clear, concise, and intentional version of your project up to date. We can always continue to develop and change, so try things now that will help you see what you have designed in a clear manner!

One's BASE AXON should show the full model and be ready to cut various section axonometric from, and eventually explode. Meaning the model is your key to quick drawing output, as you can cut these sections wherever you need to. If you are working in CAD, then you should create one BASE AXON that prioritizes one side and is the full mass that you may use for future drawings -- this means that one axon should be saved as the full model.

From this BASE you will construct three (3) section axonometric drawings that are all the same graphic, scale, and paper size - 12"x12" centered. (See post below for more information).

We will add the following layers to the three (3) section axon metrics over the weekend, but you are WELCOME TO ADD THESE NOW:

_CMYK Oppostie State - meaning if you started with your model demonstrating the open state, you will ghost in using CMYK the closed state. This can be through opacities and planes or dashed wire frames.
_Structure and Mechanics (how is it moving)
_Scale, both graphic and text
_Active, Static, and Transitional labels as done in Section Drawings


Deliverables Due FRIDAY at 8:30 am PINNED UP
_P02 Big Idea One Page printed stream of consciousness or ramble that further developed your big idea from Phase 01 as it now applies to Phse 02.
_P02E Section EDITS IF APPLICABLE: Three (3) section drawings with all cited layers printed (on plain bond or tiled) on your choice of paper size
_P02F Section Axonometric UP TO THREE (3) ) Section Axon drawingS in black and white, scaled, and centered on a 12"x12" sheet of paper with all layers mentioned
-and/or-
_P02G Tape Model COMPLETED One (1) Tape Model demonstrating device + ground condition. Device should be 12"x12"x12" - ground condition may be any width or length.

^NOTE: Remember to keep at least one full model in Rhino or in AutoCAD -- meaning keep a full axon without cutting it. This will be sued for future partis.


P02F+G AX-ON, AX-OFF // Section to Axon/Model Monday Sept 28

/ P02e Section Drawing EDITS
Each of you must first make edits to the three (3) section drawings discussed today. Remember that you are NOW DESIGNING WHAT SPACE CAN BE RATHER THAN WHAT THE SPACE WAS BEFORE. Meaning do not rely on your previous models or iterations, but USE THE SECTIONS TO HELP YOU DEVELOP YOUR DESIGN. What is thick or thin? WHY? How many spaces are interacting? What is the resultant space? Why? Think of the following issues in order:

00_VERY FIRST, USE TRASH PAPER ON TOP OF YOUR SECTIONS TO WORK THROUGH IDEAS FROM TODAY!!!
01_First adjust the SCALE FIGURES
02_Modify and use the MODULES to help make small, intimate moves and spaces
03_Think about how you USE THE GROUND LINE TO REINFORCE YOUR SPACES!!!!
04_Decided on your OWN PAPER SIZE!!!!! How does it reflect your project? How does it work with the diagrams and orientation strips?
05_Think about OCCUPATION. How does one rest, sit, stand, walk? How does this change your design? How do you want them to occupy?
06_Think about the different moments of THRESHOLD. Where does one transition between spaces? Enter the project? How do you use ground lines to facilitate this?
07_What is your SPATIAL SYSTEM within the device that facilitates the variety of spaces -- both interior and exterior?
07_Check your LINE WEIGHTS AND LINE TYPES!!!

Make sure that all previous layers noted below are featured as well as the added layers:

_ADDED Scale Label -- include text (ie. 1/4" = 1'-0") and graphic scale, small in bottom corner
_ADDED Note Thresholds in same manner as you have noted Active, Static, and Transitional Space
_Scale Peeps - at let 3 in each section, same scale different opacities
_Module - only show final but use to iterate in your trash paper
_Structure - include “nuts and bolts” of your kinetic device. Show dowels, pins, sliders, etc. in detail within your sections. Be nitty gritty again.
_Six (6) iterations of your device studied through section
_Final poche (white) - thickness and thiness, occupiable versus solid versus plane versus line - on one iteration only.
_Six (i6) iterations of ground line (black) + final ground line (solid white line 3-4 pt)
_Construction lines on final poche only
_Opposite state of motion (dashed) - final poche only but iterate through trash paper.

Note: Please reprint you sections on plain bond or tiled for Wednesday. We will print on coated bond for the final review.


AFTER YOU FINISH YOUR SECTION EDITS, YOU WILL CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING ASSIGNMENTS TO MOVE FORWARD FOR WEDNESDAY:


/ P02f Section Axonometric
After you have worked through your section drawings you should now move to a section axonometric to explore iterations in terms of sectional space and formal mass. Meaning use the section axon to further understand how that SECTIONAL MOMENT WORKS WITH THE WHOLE DEVICE. You may complete these drawing in either Rhino or AutoCAD depending on your skill level.

The section-axonometric should feature all of the following:
_Black Poche @ section cut plane
_Black Poche @ ground cut plane
_Linework to show the remaining device beyond the section cut
_You do not need to show what is in front of the cut plane
_Choose a cut plane in the front 1/3 of the device to make sure you have enough information in the drawing
_Include all members, spaces, and kinetic structure in the axonometric drawing

Please look towards the flooding as examples of section axon and axonometric drawing techniques: Poli House / Pezo von Ellrichshausen and Peter Eisenman House X as well as search through the Drawing Architecture Glassell Pinterest Page for more examples.

The section axonometric drawing should be drawn to a scale and the centered on a 12"x12" sheet of paper -- black and white, plain bond or tiled for Wednesday. This means that you should not simple "fit to page" but know what scale your drawing fits best on a 12"x12" sheet of paper.


/ P02g Tape Model
Using your section edits, begin to construct a NEW TAPE MODEL that demonstrates additional edits to your sections and previous studies. These models, while taped, should properly demonstrate your SPATIAL SYSTEMS AS WELL AS YOUR KINETIC MOVEMENT.

Each model should be 12"x12"x12, of any material, and now feature YOUR DESIGNED GROUND CONDITION - THIS IS THE TIME TO USE RIGID FOAM (pink and purple foam found at home depot, etc) that can be easily laminated and cut. You may also rent a foam cutter from the model shop. Make sure that your model features all the following conditions:
_Full iterated device correctly closed (meaning if there is a mass you should close it)
_Full kinetic mechanism developed and working
_Full Ground made out of foam (laminate foam, can be janky)
_Focus on plane, mass, line!!!!
_Device @ 12"x12"x12" ground can be whatever size you need!!!! Make good choices!!!


/ P02 Big Idea
Develop your big idea from Phase 01 -- this does not have to be complete sentences but can be stream of consciousness. How has your BIG IDEA EVOLVED AND DEVELOPED SINCE PHASE 01? Have at least one page on the template that I will email to you!


NOTE: WEDNESDAY WILL BE A WORK DAY, TO ALLOW YOU TO CONTINUE DEVELOPING YOUR AXON OR MODEL, HOWEVER, YOU SHOULD BE FINISHED BY THE TIME CLASS STARTS AND THUS USE CLASS TIME TO ITERATE, DEVELOP, AND MAKE STRONGER. AND/OR USE CLASS TIME TO MOVE TO THE NEXT STEP.

P02D ORIENTATION + SCALE // Image Studies Wednesday Sept 23

After you FINISH YOUR KINETIC MODELS FROM WEDNESDAY'S DISCUSSIONS -- remembering that some of you are merely editing one of your finished kinetic models (either full or moment) and some of you are still lacking a full kinetic model (meaning fully understood spatially, resultant through movement, and are around 12"x12"x12") -- you will each begin to study ORIENTATION AND SCALE OF YOUR DEVICE.


device noun de·vice \di-ˈvīs\
_an object, machine, or piece of equipment that has been made for some special purpose
_something that is done in order to achieve a particular effect


/ P01d Device Orientation + Scale Strips

Begin by taking your final choice of kinetic models to the photo lab. Study the model, in both OPEN AND CLOSED STATES. How do you begin to understand the variations in space? Primary, secondary, tertiary? Active, static, and transitional? What are the obvious orientations versus the less obvious? Try everything! AS THIS IS THE TIME TO INVESTIGATE, EXHAUST, AND UNDERSTAND THE FULL POTENTIAL OF YOUR DEVICE. Use the following steps to guide your design process:

01_Play with the Orientation - try each version of the device sitting flat, but also see if you can "rig" the black backdrop to hold up the device at various angles, positions, or trajectories. How does this change the spaces you have designed? How does it alter the spatial relationships? How does adding a ground plane change, reinforce, or modify your big idea? TAKE TIME WITH THIS!!!
02_Choose Orienations Choose five (5) different orientations to photograph in more depth. While I will only expect to see six (6) images per orientation, you should take at least 15-20 of each to have for reference, understanding, and exploration.
03_Take Black and White Images of Each Focus on three flat elevations, meaning three sides to study of each orientation. Take an image of each side in both OPEN AND CLOSED STATES. Meaning for Side 01 you will have an image of the device closed and the device open = Six (6) images of three (3) sides for all five (5) orientations.
04_Arrange the images into strips Crop or scale each image into a 4"x4" square and then assemble all six(6) into an image strip @ 4"x24". Arrange each image to follow the open, closed, open, closed, open, closed state. Do this for all five (5) orientations.
05_Add ground lines Using a single, solid, 100% CMYK line, begin to address a proposed GROUND PLANE in all six images. These do not have to be the same from image to image,but should RESPOND DIRECTLY TO THE DEVICE ORIENTATION ITSELF. Make good choices with this, and understand that your device may go UNDER GROUND, SUSPENDED ABOVE GROUND, OR SIT WITHIN/AT GROUND -- BUT MOST LIKELY WILL DEMONSTRATE ALL THREE.
06_Add scale Figures After you have finished your ground line exercise, begin to add scale figures to each image. Again, these do not have to be the same for each image but should respond to the device orientation itself. Each image must employ at least one (1) scale figure. Each orientation strip of six (6) images should also demonstrate at least three (3) variations of scale -- a 3" scale figure, one bigger, and one smaller. Again, this means that out of the six (6) images maybe two use the 3" scale figure and 2 a bigger one and 2 a smaller one. Or maybe one image uses all three. This is up to you and your design goals.

Scale Figures should be solid CMYK Silhouettes (at 70-8-% opacity) such as Action Figure Vectors or any of the plethora Goolge Images Suggests


Deliverables Due FRIDAY at 8:30 am PINNED UP
_P02C Final Kinetic and Fixed Models Well crafted and presented studies including the one (1) model you used to take image strips of.
_P02D Orientation and Scale Strips Five (5) strips made of six (6) images at 4"x4" that demonstrate five different orientation possibilities and include ground line and up to three (3) variations of scale figures.



P02C RE-DO // Iteration Monday Sept 21

Each of you should know what is expected of you individually after today's discussion. We are now re-doing the assignment below in it's entirety. This means for Wednesday I will expect three well-crafted tape models and your final Systems Diagrams printed on coated bad at 8"x24" (unless you are Raya and you have special paper size).

DO NOT TAKE THIS TIME TO FIDDLE AROUND, BUT TO MAKE CLEAR, CONCISE DECISIONS. Remember to just roll with your process and learn from each step rather than trying to plan for the end now! Don't think past the model in front of you - we have plenty of time to develop your Phase 02 project.


Deliverables Due WEDNESDAY at 8:30 am -- SEE POST BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS
_P02b EDITS: Trash Paper Three (3) 8"x24" trash paper iterations THAT SHOW AN UGLY PROCESS.
_P02b EDITS: Systems Diagrams Three (3) 8" x 24" systems section diagrams printed ON COATED BOND PAPER
_P02c Fixed Model One (1) Fixed hybrid tape model - EITHER DONE THROUGH LAYERING SLICE MODELS, INSERTING EACH SECTION MODEL, OR BUILDING AN INTEGRATED WHOLE.
_P02c Kinetic Models Two (2) iterations of a kinetic tape model @ 14"x14"x14" THAT REFLECT A WHOLE AND COMPLETE THOUGHT, NOT A MOMENT MODEL!!!!



P02C MOTION MODELS // Kinetic Space Friday Sept 18

ki·net·ic (adj).of, relating to, or resulting from motion. (of a work of art) depending on movement for its effect.
CAUSE AND EFFECT, RESULT, CONSEQUENCE, CHANGE, MOTION, MOVEMENT


/ P02b EDITS: Systems of Iteraction

You will each continue to develop ITERATIONS of your systems diagrams, this time LETTING GO OF ALL PRESSURE, FRUSTRATION, AND RULE SETS. Put your drawdel away so that you are not tempted to look at it during the diagramming process. This time I want you to focus only on the diagrams you developed for today. How do you find the COMPOSITION OF SPACE? Are there too many solids/voids that are the same thickness? Is this good? Can you see a primary, secondary, tertiary space across the three? Are these related to active, static, or transitional? Do you still have a "bottom"?


01 EDITS_TRASH PAPER You will begin your next iterations via trash paper ROLLED ON TOP OF YOUR DIAGRAMS and develop at LEAST SIX (6) ITERATIONS OF EACH OF THE THREE (3) DIAGRAMS focusing on how you iterate the final white fill you chose. Continue using the solid black line system from the diagram itself -- meaning we are not remaking, just adding more iterations. ALSO, do no just offset, however try and keep it simple (think of kid words!) -- be sure and have a word written in your sketchbook for each iteration, such as:

Make it FAT, SKINNY, PERFORATE, SQUISH, PULL, PUSH, FLIP, TURN, EXTEND, MAKE TALLER, MAKE SHORTER, SQUAT, PUNCH A HOLE IN IT, CARVE IT, SLICE IT, PUNCH IT, SHAVE IT, STRETCH IT....OPTIONS ARE ENDLESS. Do not focus on your system necessary, but of the INTUITIVE COMPOSITION OF SPACE -- DOES IT LOOK RIGHT TO YOU? Is it proportional? Do they make sense as a set of three (3).


02 EDITS_DIGITAL Once you have completed your new trash paper iterations, move back to illustrator. DO NOT DELETE ANY LINES MADE BEFORE (unless you are Garrett and need to close them) but rather ADD AT LEAST SIX (6) NEW ITERATIONS TO THE DIAGRAM. Make sure to think about the following issues:

_Where is the section sitting within the 8"x24" sheet of paper? Is it centered? Why? Does it shift axis from the other two sections diagrams?
_When you choose a NEW WHITE FILL make sure it has a black line iteration that corresponds -- meaning it's stroked.
_Are your iterations big or small? How do you begin to see potential in these extremes?
_The CMYK is the SPACE, the WHITE is the OBJECT. How do you assemble space from the object you have diagrammed?
_Now that you are not referencing your drawdel, try something new!!!! Iterate the section on the diagram, NOT THE DRAWDEL
_Make sure this is a critical process and evaluate constantly by checking how the diagram makes you feel -- does it seem awkward? If so change it!
_If you need to add more space, do it. If you need to delete space, do it. If you need to depart more or less from the drawled, just do it! _Do not just develop these objects at the size of foam core or chipboard, but feel free to taper, elongate, perforate, etc. As we can make anything!

Additionally, please note the following added layers:
01_Refine the DIRECTION layer by adding both an INTERIOR DIRECTION AND EXTERIOR DIRECTION. These dashed lines with arrows should only sit within the CMYK, meaning the SPACES. Do not generalize this, be specific!!!!
02_Six (6) additional iterations using solid black lines
03_Change in MOTION. Using black dashed lines, indicate how your DEVICE WILL MOVE either in terms of a range of motion or change in motion.This should also change how you iterate, as now you have CONSEQUENTIAL SPACE!!!!!

Note: These should be printed at 8"x 24" in color and can be on plain bond or tiled 8.5x11. We will print the final version on coated bond for Wednesday's class.


/ P02c Kinetic Models

After you have finished your diagramming process, you will switch to actual MODELS that fit within a 14"x14"x14" volumetric envelope. Bring back your drawdel for ideas now -- however, do not just pick an area of your project, but rather shrink and edit down to this size. We are slowly scaling your project, so let this also allow you to make slight change from your diagrams to the model. Your new model should be reminiscent of your drawdels, remember that!
Remember, these are also iterations, so something should change in each. These should have NO ORIENTATION and be true to your agenda -- meaning if you don't want me to see through the model, then close it. Do not have "columns" or 'supports," -- make a mass a mass and a thickened or tapered plane a plane.

_Fixed Model @ 14"x14"x14" max envelope
Using THREE (3) materials designating Active, Static, and Transitional, develop a fixed hybrid model of your diagrammatic studies. This should have no orientation and demonstrate a solid spatial identity.

_Kinetic Model 01 @ 14"x14"x14" max envelop when opened
Figure out how your model wants to move, how it wants to be kinetic. Think of both resultant space and created space. How does active space change when moved versus static? They do not all have to move, but should be altered by motion in someway. Meaning if active moves and static does not, the static space changes indirectly because the active overlapped it, etc. Think about the OPEN VERSUS CLOSED STATE.

_Kinetic Model 02 @ 14"x14"x14" max envelop when opened
Continue to iterate the kineteic nature of your project. This can either be a full iteration (meaning you went from folding to turning) or a subtle iteration that further refines your first type of motion. THINK HARDER ABOUT OPEN VERUS CLOSED STATES.

While these are tape models, they should BE WELL CRAFTED AND INTENTIONAL. DO NOT THROW THESE TOGETHER AT THE LAST MINUTE.

You may use any materials mentioned in P02A+B as well as the following (for construction of the kinetic mechanism):
_Bass Wood Dowels
_Thick piano wire
_Any constructed hardware

P02A+B TRANSLATION // Systems of Interaction Wednesday Sept 16

Take this time to use your post-it notes and your review discussions to begin to translate the DRAWDEL TO A MODEL! This is a huge step and should be taken with a critical eye and an complete understanding of what you are making decisions. Take care in your iterations and make sure that each diagram and each model suggest a COMPLETE THOUGHT.

Remember that your Phase 01 diagrams and drawdels were the result of a MOTION WHICH YOU TRACKED and then defined in terms of:

ACTIVE STATE, STATIC STATE, AND TRANSITIONAL STATE.

These states have a spatial relationship that were investigated in your drawdel. The next steps afford you the opportunity to ITERATE and EXPAND and most importantly REFINE the methods used in your drawdels. Do not go backwards, but move forwards -- macro to micro -- broad to specific.

For both diagrammatic reference and model reference, look towards CJ Lim's Guest House and Peter Eisenman's Diagrams


/ P01a Trash Paper

Fill a 2'-0" x 4'-0" piece of trash paper with sectional studies of your existing drawdel. Use your parti drawings from our THRESHOLD HUNT TODAY to help you understand the different ways in which your SPATIAL SYSTEMS CAN DEMONSTRATE MULTIPLE SCALES. How do you begin to refine these spaces? How does active truly interact with transitional? With static? Are there voids? How do you rid the drawdel of a datum, of a "bottom"?


/ P02a Systems Diagrams

Using your trash paper studies, parti's, and verbiage, constructed three (3) sections from you original drawdel and begin to iterate, refine, and change their SPATIAL INTERACTIONS. Do not just offset or enlarge, but refine, define, and make new choices about how these SPACES ARE INTERACTING. Each section should focus primarily on one state but demonstrate at LEAST 2/3 OF THE STATES (ACTIVE, STATIC, AND TRANSITIONAL). Each iteration should be used to thicken, edge, densify, or intentionally add/subtract to your drawdel via your big idea.

Each of the 8"x 24" Diagrams should demonstrate the following layers:
00_Background should be solid, 100% CMYK
01_Existing Drawdel line (lightest line weight)
02_Six (6) Iterations of the section via linework (same line weight) 03_Final Choice filled (back layer) 03.5_Construction lines that only construct the final choice (lightest line weight, white linework) 04_Intersections - using a cross and a letter to denote what motion you are intersecting (no larger than 1/8") 05_Direction - dashed line with small arrow (white linework) 06_Edge - thickened line on the final choice linework only

Note: If using black linework the fill may be 100% white and exist on back layer (so that all iteration lines are visible), if using white linework, fill must be ghosted white (so that all iteration lines are visible).


/ P02b Systems Models
Using your three (3) Systems Sections, you will now develop and construct three (3) moment models (no diagram printed), that focus primary on one state of motion (Active, Static, and Transitional) as defined by your Phase 01. While these focus primarily on one state, at least two (2) states should be participating, exactly like your section diagrams. Each state of motion must be demonstrated by a different material, so as to begin to visualize how these states are truly INTERACTING WITHIN YOUR SPATIAL SYSTEMS! USE YOUR SECTION DIAGRAMS!!!! These should be INDEPENDENT 3D MODELS THAT HAVE NO ORIENTATION and thus are independent spatial models.

Be intentionaly in your material choice versus Active, Static, and Transitional per YOUR BIG IDEA, as each will have a different process of ASSEMBLY!!!! Are you carving space? Layering? Laminating? Adding? Subtracting? Each material should be well cut and crafted but the model may be a TAPE MODEL.

Materials Suggested:
_Foam (volumetric, stereotomic)
_Museum Board/Chipboard (planar, tectonic)
_Cardboard (planar, tectonic)
_Chipboard
_Foam Core
_Bass wood dowels
_Bass wood planes
_Piano Wire

Remember to always consider the following:
_Direction/Movement
_Interior versus Exterior
_Edge
_Thickness
_Extension versus Intersection
_Resultant versus Source

P01H+I // EDITS AND STUDIES Wednesday, Sept 09


HATCH CLARIFICAITONS:

Remember and thus test/employ the following when dealing with your hatch layer:

1. OPACITY_They can change opacities WHEN YOU CREATE THE HYBRID. Meaning that the hatch should participate in the hybrid as your definitions have intended. This may mean that active’s hatch is 10% opacity and transition is 100%. This may also mean that you can rotate all of active (or all of each) and allow the hatch to rotate as well — as long as the relationship of the whole active diagram stays intact.
2. SCALE_You can change the scale of the hatch in active, static, and transitional — meaning active’s hatch could be super tight and transitional’s a bit more chunky. They should be the same hatch, but can be different scale.
3. You can make your own hatch in AutoCAD and import it to Illustrator — then use the clipping mask. DO NOT STROKE THE HATCHED AREAS.
4. The hatch should SOMEHOW REINFORCE YOUR DEFINITIONS, and this can be through creating a “figure ground,” edges and boundaries etc. But don’t forget to make solid decisions about what overlaps what, how these things suggest priorities, etc.
5. ADD LINES_you can add lines to allow the hatch “shape” to be more independent of the diagram if you BIG IDEA will it so. Meaning don’t just fill in shapes to fill in shapes, be critical with how you ARE DESIGNING THE HATCH.
6. COLOR_ Hatch can be grey scale, black, or CMYK depending on your big idea.

P01H+I // Hybrid + Drawdel Friday, Sept 04

Labor Day Weekend Agenda:

Step 00 / P01g Superimposition vs Super Position EDITS
After today’s brief discussion, be sure and first make any technical or content EDITS BEFORE MOVING ON TO THE NEXT STEP. Double check the following:

_Construction Lines
_Scale of Activations size and opacity
_Scale of Activation is connected
_Line weidght, line types, CMYK (TREY!!!!) etc.

If all looks good keep going!!!!


Step 01 / P01 BIG IDEA
Evolve your definition in to a clear BIG IDEA, POSTION, OR AGENDA. Meaning you should marinate on the work you have completed thus far and develop a SPECIFIC and INTENTIONAL big idea that can help guide you in the next steps of the process. Think of how the states of motion are related to one another in the Super Imposition / Position diagrams. How do you observe moments of clarity? Interaction? Relationships? Don’t describe, but discuss how motion, space, and action are affecting one another.

Should be at least one (1) full page long. Print on 8.5 x 11 and include title of project, my name, your name, ARCH2501, Fall 2015, etc.


Step 02 / P01g Iteration 3_HATCH Defining Space
BASED ON YOUR EVOLVING DEFINTIONS of Active, Static, and Transitional Space. You will choose one of the previous iterations (Superimposition or Superposition) and iterate all three of that set. The hatches should be made of a chunky hatch that is regular, and thus falls regular over the whole diagram (meaning if you use a diagonal hatch, all hatch points should run the same diagonal)
Using all layers of each diagram (active, static, and transitional) -- including your construction lines, range of motion, scale of activation, body parts, etc -- begin to construct defining spatial moments, edges, and boundaries within EACH diagram through the addition of HATCHES. These should be of MULTIPLE SCALES AND SHOULD NOT BE BLANKETED, CHUNKY MONKEY, OR CHEATING.
Each hatch should demonstrate ideas that deal with either a SPATIAL BOUND THAT DEMOSTRATES RELATIONSHIP OF BODY PART TO BODY PART OR SPATIAL BOUND THAT DEMOSTRATES RELATIONSHIP OF BODY PART TO MOTION (RANGE OF MOTION). Tell your spatial story! Think poche!
Think about how the hatches provide a ground to your figure, begin to give proximal relationships (over, under, adjacent, on top, within, isolated, segregated, integrated, etc.). Continue to look at the work done by Bryan Cantley / Form:uLA OR Glassell Pinterest Board

Results in three (3) 8”x8” diagrams – one for each action: active, static, and transitional.


Step 03/ P01h Hybrid @ 24” x 24”
Combine ALL THREE (3) OF THE HATCH THE DIAGRAMS into one (1) single Hybrid Diagram. This may mean you need to change the PRIORITY OF LAYERS, OPACITIES, OR LINEWEIGHTS to accommodate all three diagrams legibility and reinforcement of one another. You should also note, that you must use the method of whichever set you chose – for example, if you chose Superimposition, you must superimpose the hatch diagrams on the hybrid.
How does your BIG IDEA help you make decisions about combining these layers? How have your prioritized information? What is MOST important? What is LEAST important? What is on the top layer? What is on the bottom layer?
The hybrid diagram should feature all of the following layers:

1_All three (3) hatch diagrams and ALL LAYERS THAT EXIST WITHIN EACH.
2_Seating Device Elevation Composite Drawing -- All linework must be visible, including dimensions, notations, construction lines, and elevation drawing. These may be flattened into a single, light lineweight and situated at very back UNLESS your big idea warrants it to be layered into the drawing in a more operational manner. How do you position it? What do the additional lines add or subtract from your big idea? You may keep or remove the image of the seating device itself, but be critical with this decision. You may also desaturate the image to remove any color. REMEMBER TO CHECK THE SIZE AND SCALE OF THIS DRAWING RELATIVE TO THE DIAGRAM AS YOU LAYER TOGETHER.
3_White Outs to provide more clarity of position and arrangement of layers – prioritization and your big idea.

Results in one (1) hybrid diagram printed at 24” x 24” cut and labeled, each action should be demonstrated on this diagram, which means all body parts at all states and all ranges of motion and all hatches!!!


Step 04/ P01I Tape Drawdel
Materials needed (we will use these materials again so buy plenty)

Required:
_White Foam Core (at least two thicknesses)
_Museum Board
_Paper (printed diagram)
_Neutral color tape (masking tape, no scotch tape) Optional:
_Piano Wire
_Clear Film (print lab only)
_T pins or straight pins


These drawdels should explore the actualized SPATIAL relationships of your diagrams -- how do you make decisions about what is highest? Lowest? How does the clear film attach? Is it laminated? Pinned? What does it allow you to isolate? Raise? Do spaces overlap? Interject? Insert? Cantilever? How do you deal with mass versus plane? Solid versus Void? Constant versus Variables?
There should be no clear datum or base in the drawdel, thus how do you avoid having a datum in space? What does the removal of the datum offer? Remember that you can go in any direction with the drawdel (meaning out or back) as long as the drawdel holds the front as the primary viewing location. Meaning the 2D diagram should be understood from the front. While there should be no legible datum, the drawdel should hit the 24”x24” perimeter at least once on each side.
While these are tape drawdels and intended to be quick and shotty to promote exploration, they should still be fairly well crafted/organized so the spatial consequences of your big idea can be clearly understood. Note that depth of the drawdel must be 2-6" deep and use AT LEAST museum board and foam core.

Results in one (1) 24" x 24" tape drawdel that can hang on the wall or from the ceiling.

P01G // Superimpose vs Superposition Wednesday Sept 02

/ P01e Definition Edits

Using pen, pencil, post-its, etc. continue to evolve your definitions as you work through the next steps of Phase 01. Edits and updates should be made on the original 8.5 x 11 print and demonstrate more definition, refinement, and critical thinking than the previous pass. Remember, this is slowly evolving into your BIG IDEA, so work intentionally and specifically!
For fun: | How to Survive Architecture School Juries


/ P01f Single Diagram Edits

After today’s in depth discussion, edit your nine (9) diagrams by critically considering number of lines, line weights, line types, and opacity. Make sure that each diagram demonstrates YOUR POSITION and demonstrates DENSITY OF INFORMATION!!!! Focus on clean, clear, and INTENTIONAL diagramming methods.

Each of the nine (9) diagrams should have the following added layers:

1_Regulating Lines used similar to construction lines but should demonstrate the spatial occupancy of the body part in each of the active, static, and transitional states. Focus on notions of EDGE, AXIS, AND BOUNDARY, noting that this is a quality over quantity exercise.
2_Connect Scale of Activation via single line. This may mean that you need to edit your current scales of activation to be more specific to the movement you are tracking. Be specific, connect the dots. Use a black solid line.
3_Label all diagrams/stacks properly, including body part and state of motion
4_Close range of motions be clear in the ways you develop the seating device range of motion as a constant or variable. Be sure that this does not become an object, but a technical analysis of the movement you are tracking. Design this graphic to be consistent and delicate across all diagrams.

Results in nine (9) EDITED diagrams


/ P01g Superimposition vs Superposition

AFTER editing your nine (9) diagrams, you should now layer each diagram from each category – ACTIVE, STATIC, AND TRANISTIONAL -- into three (3) separate diagrams. MAKE SURE THAT ALL LAYERS THAT EXISTED IN THE SINGLE DIAGRAM ARE PRESENT IN THE COMBINED DIAGRAMS.

FOCUS ON IDEAS OF CONSTANT/VARIABLE, REPEATITIVE/SINGULAR, RANGE, PRIORITY/OVERLAP.


You will do this over two iterations USING TWO DIFFERENT METHODS discussed by Peter Einseman in his essay: Diagram: An Original Scene of Writing. Super Imposition – vertical layering and Super Position – horizontal layering.
“Superimposition refers to a vertical layering differentiating between ground and figure. Superposition refers to a coextensive, horizontal layering where there is not stable ground or origin, where ground and figure fluctuate between one another.”


Iteration 1_Superimposition_Vertical layer
Simply layer each diagram within each category. This may mean that you need to edit line weights, align scales, etc. What type of change do your register in the spatial occupancy of the movement being tracked?
Results in three (3) diagrams, one for each action – Active, Static, Transitional

Iteration 2_ Superposition Horizontal layer (repositioning)
Take a position on how these three (3) diagrams overlap. How can you being to shift, rotate, or connect them via a CONSISE POSITION YOU FORM ABOUT STATIC, ACTIVE, AND TRANSITIONAL MOVEMENT + SPACE? What points line up? What regulating lines inform your decisions? What proportional modules start to reveal ORDER? CHAOS? Remember it’s important to keep layers together that were part of the original isolating (meaning the static hands diagram should stay intact but can be reoriented, repositioned).
Results in three (3) diagrams, one for each action – Active, Static, Transitional

Iteration 3_Hatch Defining Space
BASED ON YOUR EVOLVING DEFINTIONS of Active, Static, and Transitional Space. You will choose one of the previous iterations (Superimposition or Superposition) and iterate all three of that set. The hatches should be made of a chunky hatch that is regular, and thus falls regular over the whole diagram (meaning if you use a diagonal hatch, all hatch points should run the same diagonal)
Using all layers of each diagram (active, static, and transitional) -- including your construction lines, range of motion, scale of activation, body parts, etc -- begin to construct defining spatial moments, edges, and boundaries within EACH diagram through the addition of HATCHES. These should be of MULTIPLE SCALES. Each tonal plane should demonstrate either:

SPATIAL BOUND THAT DEMOSTRATES RELATIONSHIP OF BODY PART TO BODY PART OR SPATIAL BOUND THAT DEMOSTRATES RELATIONSHIP OF BODY PART TO MOTION (RANGE OF MOTION). Tell your spatial story! Think poche!

P01e + P01f // Diagramming Monday Aug 31

TRACKING Active, Static, Transitional

After seeing the stop motion strips and films, take time to rationalize independently how the body and the seating device change the space of each other. Notice your tracking suits in both and begin to develop a system that identifies when your body was being active, static, or transitional. How does the scale of activation (ie. Unscrewing, bending, hammering) change your understanding of orientation? Remember that DIAGRAMMING HAS THE ABILITY TO CHANGE WHAT YOU ARE TRACKING.


/ P01a + b + c + d EDITS

Make sure all previous assignments are updated, edited, and looking good! Line weights!


/ P01e Definitions

Create your own definitions and thus understanding of how your project is executing or demonstrating ACTIVE, STATIC, AND TRANSITIONAL motion. These should not be the “world’s definitions” but should be specific to how you see your project. Take time to marinate on your video and image stills – how do you begin to define your video? How does it demonstrate these three states of motion?

Write these definitions as you are furthering your understanding of your video, image stills, body suit, and seating device. These may be stream of consciousness and must be a MINIMUM of one sentence each. Print on a single 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper, either portrait or landscape format. Include the TITLE OF YOUR PROJECT, your name, my name, ARCH 2501, FA15, etc.


/ P01e Analog Indexing

Using your printed motion strips, YOU WILL USE STRING, POST-ITS, AND SHARPIE MAKERS to physically index your image stills. Begin this indexing process that identifies the following transformative properties and STATES OF MOTION according to YOU AND YOUR PROJECT:

_TRANSITION How do you define transition? How does white space allow you to pull construction lines? How many times do you transition?
_STATIC How do you define static? Where are anchor points within the strips? How many?
_ACTIVEHow do you define active? What scales are you moving within? Is it just your hand? Your hips? Your shoulders?
_SCALE Where are the different points of activation (scales of activation) within the seating device itself? The joints? How are you taking this apart?
_RANGE What is the range of motion that is being defined by the seating device’s deconstruction?

After defining a system, index how many / which slides are demonstrating the most active, static, or transitional moments FOR EACH BODY PART. Analog indexing SHOULD BE DONE DIRECTLY ON FILM STRIP (OR TRASH PAPER). Be clear, be specific!


/ P01f Diagrams

Using your index and your definitions, begin to assess which images are demonstrating active, static, and transitional STATES OF EACH BODY PART. How has your analog index provided a manual trace of each body part and seating device via points, lines, or planes to inform your decisions? What is the system that you have developed that defines each of these three states as they apply to your body, motion, and the seating device?
To begin the diagramming process, first assess the IMAGE STACKS. Use the process of multiplying in Photoshop to develop image stacks that flatten each slide into one diagrammatic understanding – one isolated position (for example: static arm). Take the time to observe whether you should up the saturations, contrast, etc to help you better see the nuances inherent to your movements, as these will be your base for your diagrams.
Develop nine (9) diagrams and nine (9) image stacks: three (3) for each body part as follow for each of the states of motion you are tracking. For example, if my three body parts were my toes, knees, and back, I would have the following diagrams/image stacks:


1 Toes, Active 2 Toes, Static 3 Toes Transitional 4 Knees, Active 5 Knees, Static 6 Knees, Transitional 7 Back, Active 8 Back, Static 9 Back, Transitional

Each diagram should be 8”x8” and have the following five (5) layers:
01 ISOLATED BODY PART_(Body) Multiple lines demonstrating single body part in single state, solid line, CMKY
02 RANGE OF DISTANCE (Body):Create a distance scale on the right side of the 8x8 sheet of paper that demonstrates the distance your body part has traveled (i.e. a scale tick at the bottom of the foot and top of foot per cluster). Line should be solid and end in a circle, cross, or thickened line.
03 RANGE OF MOTION_(Seating device) Focus on the range of motion for various parts of the seating device ONLY, shown via black dashed line. Demonstrate multiple scales of motion and their subsequent ranges. Meaning the whole chair moved, as well as the wheel, the pedal, etc.
04 SCALE OF ACTIVATION_(Body + Seating Device) How large or small of an area does your body come into direct contact with the seating device, resulting in activation? Use a grey rectilinear box (of assorted sizes) as well as opacities to demonstrate this layer and it’s priority
05 LABEL_All Diagrams and Image Stacks should be labeled with the body part, state of motion, name, my name, etc. No larger than 6pt font.

BE SUPER SUPER SPECIFIC!!!!!

Please note: Each body part should have a line or point or plane identified on ALL SLIDES. The key is how these are divided up into the three categories of drawings. Meaning that if you have 240 slides, the back should have 240 lines distributed over the three (3) back diagrams

Print all eighteen (18) required diagrams or images stacks on 8”x8” single piece of paper in COLOR

P01D // Stop Motion Drawing Friday Aug 28

Work hard, work intentionally, make good choices!


/ P01a + b EDITS

First you should make the technical edits discussed in class today. Make sure all required layers are addressed and everyone has double checked the following on both the 11x11 and 24x24 composite:

_Dimensions are closed
_Lineweights are clear (at least five)
_Diagrammatic layer demonstrating you body position is specific and accurate to your P01b Tracking Suit
_More notations! Neatly justified and no larger than 8 pt font
_See Tyler's drawing for more notes for the class
_Center and/or correctly compose the drawing within the paper size
_Dashed information beyond/behind

MORE MORE MORE DENISTY OF INFORMATION!


Add the following layer ONLY TO THE Composite Elevation 24” x 24” which should focus primarily on one elevation of your choosing (either side or front), centering the diagrammatic usage of this elevation:

_Ghosted Image Minimum of two (2) ghosted images that show the seating device in at least two (2) additional states of motion. Meaning if the chair twists, take an image of it at two (2) states of it's twist -as discussed in class.

Again, think about where you intersect them – what point of the seating device warrants a shared point? What line? What construction line? Should the elevations be side-by-side? Different opacities? Different line weights? Make good choices. Both elevations should be the same size (scale) and be featured on the Composite Elevation. Keep in mind the space around the side elevation, as you will be diagramming your motions on top of this next week.


/ P01c Tracking Device (Suit) EDITS

As mentioned in class, pay attention to the consequences of your body on the seating device as well as consequences of the seating device on your body. Where is it rigid? Fluid? How do you edit your tracking suite to be more specific? CRAFT MATTERS!


/ P01d Stop Motion Drawing

With the aid of partner, film a stop motion of you using your seating device as intended, using it specific to your body, and taking it apart. Be mindful of the following techniques:

0_USE A TRIPOD OR CLAMP TO SECURE CAMERA TO ON CLOCATION
1_What is the time span between still images? 4 second? 1.5 seconds? 10 seconds? 25 seconds? Why? What are the consequences of MOTION TRACKING that come with this decisions?
2_What type of background are you using? Why?
3_Are you always facing the same direction? Why?
4_Where do you discard the parts of the seating device you remove? Why?
5_How honest is the stop motion to the actual process you took to deconstruct? Or are you omitting information? Why?
6_How do employ lighting? Shadow? Darkness?
7_Do some test images before starting the animation to see the QUALITY OF STILLS!!!!!


_Three Iterations:

1_Base Film: Use all stills timed as they were taken
2_Edited Film: Either remove stills, add stills, or change the time between stills (speed up or slow down)
3_Final Film: Either remove stills, add stills, or change the time between stills (speed up or slow down)


_Printed Film Strips

Print ALL STILLS used in the Final Film animation in proper sequence @ 4"x48" strips. See Leo Martinez's example here. These are to be hung in rows similar to the way in which Muybrdige demonstrated his motion images. Make sure all stills are in the right sequential order and all are fully printed.

See InDesign Tutorial on placing multiple images here: Placing Images


Deliverables Due Monday, August 31 pinned up and ready no later than 8:30am:

_P01a EDITS Each 11x11 should be clean, organized, and demonstrate proper line weights -- INCLUDING DASHED INFO BEYOND.

_P01d_Printed Film Strip Print ALL stills from "Final Film" @ 4” x 48” linear strips, number of strips will vary depending on film length.



P01B + C // Composite + Tracking Wednesday Aug 26

After today's discussion, you should all be WELL AWARE of the consequences your body has when interacting with the seating device and visa versa. Think of this next phase as a way to truly assess the TRANSFORMATIVE qualities that happen to your body in sequence when the seating device is being activated. Remember to note concepts of MOTION, SPACE, AND SPECIFYING RELATIONSHIPS!


/ P01a EDITS

As discussed today, edit your 11x11 P01a Tracing drawings of your seating device – being mindful of the following things:

_No Image You may go head and cut the image out (ie. isolate it from the background) but you will not turn this layer on for the 11x11 drawings.
_Dash Info Behind Make sure and use a dashed line to indicate any information that is hidden in the primary elevation (see Josh’s for example)
_Lineweights Take another pass at all of your lineweights, keeping in mind that you should have AT LEAST five(5) different lineweights. (see Levi’s for example)
_Closing Dimensions Be sure that there are no “orphan” dimension strings that do not tie off to the macro unit above. Make sure all ticks and numbers are clear, a proper size, and in proper locations. LEGIBILITY IS KEY HERE!
_Density of information: MORE construction lines, MORE dimensions, MORE notations, MORE linework (connections, bolts, seams, welds, casements, DETAILS)
_Clean Make sure your drawings are clean and organized. Be mindful of overlapping information and justifying your notational text and ORDERING SYSTEMS scale.
_Body Specific After taking time to truly ACTIVATE your seating device, decide how your three (3) body parts SPECIFICALLY activate or are activated by the seating device. How do you truly DEMONSTRATE how this body part is situated, oriented, and positioned in the device? Should the body parts be demonstrated with a point or a line? Why? Is it rigid or modular? MAKE GOOD CHOICES! (Remember that we will continue to edit this layer, so make a CLEAN, GRAPHIC, CHOICE that assists you with the design and execution of your Tracking Suit.


/ P01b Composite Drawing

AFTER the P01a edits are addressed, transfer BOTH ELEVATIONS to a single 24” x 24” piece of paper, including ALL LAYERS from each drawing. This may mean that you need to retouch line weights, opacities, spacings, justifications, and linetypes. All text should stay at 10pt or less.

Make sure to allow the Composite Elevation to focuser primarily (and/or prioritize) one elevation and let the second elevation be utilized merely to reinforce and offer more information about the device -- to provide a collective whole via two parts. The two elevations MUST INTERSECT (except Romina’s), but each of you must be clear in why you chose to intersect at a certain point – what point of the seating device warrants a shared point? What line? What construction line? Should the elevations be the same line color (grey vs. black)? Different opacities? Different line weights? Make good choices!!!

Be sure the composite drawings features all the assigned layers for BOTH ELEVATIONS including:

_Image Included Turn on your isolated image layers for the elevations, however you should employ appropriate opacities to distinguish the two and use the image to add depth or shadow, but not overpower the drawing.
_Both elevations should be the same size (scale) and be featured on the Composite Elevation. Keep in mind the space around the side elevation, as you will be diagramming your motions on top of this next week.
_TITLE your project by naming your seating device. Label the drawing with this title, your name, my name, ARCH 2501, Fall 2015


/ P01c TRACKING SUIT

Using the diagrammatic layers DEVELOPED IN YOUR P01a and P01b drawings, being to focus your attention on YOUR body to develop a TRACKING SUITE PROTOTYPE. Take time to activate your seating device and marinate on your drawing edits, noting how SPECIFIC YOUR BODY ACTIVATES OR IS ACTIVATED BY THE SEATING DEVICE. For example, how do you use the seating device? Do you slouch? What parts of you feel rigid when interacting with it? What parts feel fluid? How does your body operate the seating device? Activate it? Should your body stay rigid or just it flex to the device?

Using ANY MATERIAL NECESSARY, design, develop, and construct a TRACKING DEVICE (SUIT) that can be worn on your body. This tracking device should ONLY HIGHLIGHT (or DIAGRAM) the three specific body parts you’ve previously assessed. Remember to be super specific. For example, think about the following possibilities:

_Fingers
_Palms
_Wrists
_Ankles
_Thigh
_Calves
_Shoulders
_Whole Leg
_Spine vs Lower Back

Do not default to the whole arm if only parts of it are actually affected by the seating device. THE MORE SPECIFIC YOU ARE THE MORE DENSE YOUR STUDY WILL BE.


Deliverables Due FRIDAY at 8:30 am pinned up and/or worn

_IO Graph Drawings Add labels ONLY (time stamps) if you were missing them on Wednesday.

_P01a EDITS Two (2) Elevation Tracing Drawings (one of side elevation and one of front) each printed at 11” x 11” with all assigned layers.

_P01b Composite Drawing One (1) 24”x24” composite drawing including both elevations (and all accompanying layers) from P01a.

Please note that these drawings should be of presentation quality and thus been POST PRODUCED in Illustrator. Make good decisions about line weights, line types, and opacity.

_P01c TRACKING SUIT Prototype either worn or ready to be tried on which focuses on three (3) specific body parts.

Sketchbooks Sentences/Words Using your sketchbook, loosely begin to articulate your observations and forming position on space, motion, and tracking the body.



PHASE 01A // Tracing Monday, Aug 24

BODY, MOTION, DIAGRAM

/ Step ONE: Seating Device

Each student is to FIND, SCAVENGE, SALVAGE, OR ACQUIRE a type of SEATING DEVICE. There is no size limit or volumetric constraint, however the following guidelines should be taken into consideration:

1. Weight (needs to be brought to studio and easily moved)
2. Fitting in the studio (there will be a total of fifteen(15) of these, remember)
3. Complexity (the more complex, the better! Movable parts! Lots of connectors!)
4. Must have inherent MOTION, must change STATES FROM STATIC TO ACTIVE.
5. Cannot be a single mold or cast piece
6. Must BE USED FOR SITTING but can demonstrate various ways of “sitting” (conventional examples: chair, stool, bench, lounge, ottoman, drafting stool.......)
7. It is possible to return the object in its original state, however, you need to be comfortable with the possibility that it may be rendered useless after this study.

/ Step TWO: Active Trace

Each student is to download the FREE SOFTWARE called IO Graphica IO Graphica

This software is to be TURNED ON during the entirety of this tracing phase. However, be extremely mindful of when this is program is on and when it is paused -- meaning only keep it on when you are ACTIVELY DRAWING! This can include computer activities or edits in Photoshop, Internet research, AutoCAD drawing etc -- MAKE GOOD CHOICES. (You should pause the program if you take a break from drawing or leave your computer).


/ Step THREE: Static Trace

YOU WILL NOW BEGIN TO INDEX your seating device in terms of technical details, proportions, and parts.


Required Analog Indexing:

_0_Measure Develop a system of measurements on the ACTUAL DEVICE. Using tape, paint pen, or sharpie, mark your device BEFORE TAKING IMAGES OF IT. Develop your own system of incremental measurements BASED ON TWO (2) PARTS OF YOUR BODY that will help you define relative proportions and ORDERING SYSTEMS. This could be noting how long your hand is and developing a way to note how many hands in length each piece of the device is, etc. Be sure to include two(2) body parts in your measurements that thus dictate two (2) types of ordering systems.
_1_Photograph Position your seating device in a location that allows you to photograph it in the most direct elevation possible. Think about where your camera is in relation to the device and try to be as square as possible WITH A NEUTRAL BACKGROUND. While you are encouraged to take many photographs, choose one successful SIDE ELEVATION and one successful FRONT ELEVATION to move forward with.

Once you have photographed your seating device in front and side elevation, take these images into AutoCAD (properly scaled 1:1) and begin to trace them. Each drawing should include all scales of detail and be able to demonstrate the seating device in its entirety if the image were to be turned off. Thought the image may be slightly perspective in nature, the DRAWING SHOULD BE A FLAT ELEVATION.


Required Digital Layers (all separate line weights and/or line types):

Line work / CAD Layers:
_0 Image a flat elevation image (centered) of your seating device using a NEUTRAL BACKGROUND. (very back layer, may choose to employ opacity)
_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 Full 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 10pt). Notate everything, even if you have to make up words to describe the piece.

Lineweight/Hierarchy Changes Only:
_4 Structure Identify the structure of the device, how is it supporting the device? Constructing it? Forming it? What is it’s role in the SYSTEM?
_5 Connection How is your seating device connected? How does this influence the system?

Diagrammatic Layers (can be CMYK):
_6 Operation Using dashed lines, indicate how your object operates (pivots, turns, folds, etc.) - this may be CMYK if you choose.
_7 Ordering System Cleanly and clearly graphically demonstrate the two (2) ordering system in which you used to mark the physical device.This should be the two (2) body parts in which you used to assess the proportion of the device to the body when measuring analog
_8 Body (CMYK) Assess the three (3) main body parts that are either affected by or directly affect the seating device when used. Must be symmetrical, ie. If one chooses “hand” both hands and their positions should be documented on top of the technical drawing. Sit in your seating device and intently decided how your body situates itself on or in the device. What parts of your body are touching it? What parts are superfluous or unattended? Does the device need your body to operate? How? Should the body parts be demonstrated with a point or a line? Why? Is it rigid or modular?

_Density of information: the more construction lines, more dimensions, more notations, more textures (fabrics, ridges, etc), more scales of information the more DEMONSTRATIVE AND USEFUL YOUR DRAWING WILL BE.
_Lineweights: You should have AT LEAST five(5) lineweights.


Deliverables Due Wednesday pinned up at 8:30am:

P01a_IO Graph Drawings @ 6 increments of time printed in BW on a single sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper
P01a_One (1) Front Elevation Drawing of SEATING DEVICE with all layers mentioned listed above.Device should be centered on 11x11 piece of paper.
P01a_One (1) Side Elevation Drawing of SEATING DEVICE with all layers mentioned listed above. Device should be centered on 11x11 piece of paper.
Please note that these drawings should be of presentation quality and thus been POST PRODUCED in Illustrator. Make good decisions about line weights, line types, and opacity of the original image. Do you use black lines or white lines?

_Reading: Peter Eisenman: Diagram, An Original Scene of Writing - pg 93-103 You are to have two (2) sketches in your sketchbook that respond to the reading. These will be used to generate a discussion about the reading on Wednesday.
