P03H // PERSPECTIVE Wednesday, Apr 8

/ P03g Plans + Sections ADDED LAYERS:

For your plan and section edits, think REFINED, CLEAR, CONCISE, AND LEGIBLE. Using correct line weights, line types, and INTENTIONAL POCHE, be sure that your plans and sections successfully demonstrate your agenda. Though we are not yet inserting doors or glazing, you should still assess HOW AND WHY one would enter or exit in such a manner, how do you DEFINITE THRESHOLD? How do you use the thinnest poche to demonstrate future glazing? Be mindful of what wall thicknesses you use for each type of spatial relationship. Why would one use a 3.5" stud wall versus a 2'-0" concrete wall? How does the information above (dashed) begin to show roof lines, soffits, extensions, etc.

_Elevation Tags (numbers and plus sign demonstrating level changes)
_Section tags (for both the nine (9) slice models and the three (3) longitudinal sections
_Clear interior / exterior relationships

_THRESHOLDS (using a single line to determine where one moves from interior to exterior)
_Name, Glassell, ARCH 2502, Phase 03:Performance
_Scale/North Arrow _No opacities (your project should be able to demonstrate your big idea WITHOUT opacities)


/ P03h Collaged PSD Perspective

Using photoshop + a single panoramic, design a QUICK QUALITATIVE PERSPECTIVE that demonstrates scale, mass, situation, site, and activation. Reference the work of LTL Overdrawing and other methods of collaged perspectives to understand the value of this type of rendering method. Do not feel as if you have to make this REPRESENTATIONAL, but rather use this as a DESIGN TOOL to help you make decisions about modifications to plan, section, and drawdel later. Take time to research media precedents and understand that this should be suggestive and demonstrative of the more qualitative aspects to your PERFORMATIVE ARCHITECTURE.

P03G // BUILDING PLANS Friday, Apr 3


EACH OF YOU SHOULD INSTAGRAM ONE (1) IMAGE OF YOUR FINISHED DRAWDEL


/ P03g Plans + Sections

Further develope your plan diagrams into a more refined Building Plan and three (3) Longitudinal Sections at 1/8"=1'-0". Each of the three sections should be facing the same direction, thus reinforcing the sequential nature of your project. Do not jump too fast from the diagrammatic stage, but rather focus on how your design is getting more and more specific. This pass should focus on the larger organization of spatial relationships and typologies as they are realized with your big idea. Develope this through one (1) Building Plan and three (3) Longitudinal Sections should demonstrate the following layers:

_Interior Poche
_Exterior Poche
_Water Edges (pool edge)
_Stairs and Ramps
_Information Beyond (sections only)
_Information Above (dashed lines)
_Entry and Exit (egress) shown as openings and arrows
_ADA Route(s)
_Openings (potential door and glazing locations)
_Specific Program Labels + Square Footage
_Total Interior and Exterior Square footage calculation (as is)
_Topo and Grade lines (site)
_Exterior Retentinon Wall(s)
_Roof lines (thick, thin, cantilevered, inset?)


/ P03g Big Idea Ramble

Continue to develop your Big Idea with a more refined ramble. AT LEAST ONE FULL PAGE! Printed on 8.5 x 11


DELIVERABLES DUE WEDNESDAY, APR 8 at 8:30 am:

_P03g Building Plan and three (3) Longitudinal Sections @ 1/8"=1'-0" scale.
_P03g Big Idea Ramble at least one full page of rambling



P03E + F // COHESIVE PLANS Wednesday, Apr 1

This next pass will focus intensely on developing a cohesive plan (both building and site) using your slice models and siting diagrams. Be sure to have a big idea that connects all your decisions as your architectural position takes shape. Though we are moving towards a building plan, this pass should STILL BE DIAGRAMMATIC, as you should be slowly sculpting your program through formal architectural devices and slowly modifying the site through programmatic typologies as they relate to a cohesive whole.


/ P03e Plan Diagram Program to Form

Using your slice models, begin to translate a cohesive building plan using your big idea and rhizome map to integrate the slices together. Do not merely connect via corridors or by adding more program, but rather modify, adjust, and realign programmatic elements to be more legible as a single idea -- demonstrating both interior and exterior conditions. Remember that just because a program element was massed in the site model, does not mean it must be an isolated "room" or even and interior condition -- be sure to assess how the typology is PERFORMING and whether each should integrate, layer, etc. Also, program that was assessed in the site model could be either interior or exterior, depending on how one manipulates site.

All projects must be only one story, so no elevators may be used. Thus as paths or trajectories layer, one must assess the multiple access points one would need to achieve this without the use of a double story. Additionally, no corridors will be allowed, but rather paths that are SPATIAL AND RELATE TO OTHER PROGRAMS VIA TYPOLOGIES ASSIGNED.

While this plan is still a DIAGRAM AND THUS SHOULD BE MORE RELATIONAL THAN ACTUAL, each of you should be specific in the way your formal, architectural devices, are beginning to adjust and actualize in terms of program and connection -- do not stuff things inside of other things, but continually modify as you oscillate between form, program, and site.

Plan Diagram should be 1/8"=1'-0" scale -- using proper line weights, line types, and opacities. Include all the following layers on your plan DIAGRAM:

_Square Footage Calculation (assessment only)
_Circulation path(s)
_Assumed ADA path(s) or route(s) DO NOT NEED TO BE FULLY CALCULATED, JUST POSITIONED
_Interior + Exterior
_Poche (diagramattic or first pass)
_Entry and Exit (arrows)
_Opacities for each type of space: Event, Transition, Operation (MAY STILL BE OVERLAPPING ETC)
_Specific Program locations (first pass at labeling OPACITIES/ZONES NOT ROOMS) such as hot bath, cold bath, etc.
_North Arrow
_Scale
_Rhizome layers (flattened) super light that have participated in your design choices


/ P03f Plan Drawdel Site to Program

Print your rhizome map (only the exact site perimeter or thereabouts) including your planar programmatic opacities. You will only technically drawdel (meaning diagram printed on manipulated material) the grade changes or site conditions. Use your rhizome map to make decisions about how to raise or lower the site and in what manner -- stepping, depressions, raising, lowering, revealing, enclosing -- as well as how the RHIZOME BEGINS TO INTERACT, INFORM, OR REINFORCE THE PROGRAMMATIC SITING. While anything goes at this point, be sure to be able to visually detect when things are too steep for ADA accessibility -- or at least have one way in that will eventually we articulated at proper slopes.

This step DOES NOT NEED TO BE SUPER CALCULATED IN TERMS OF MEASUREMENTS, BUT MORE SO AS A DESIGN POSITION.

Tape Drawdel should be built at 1/8" = 1'-0" and fit in the site model. Remember to build the drawdel so that in situates inside the site model, NOT JUST PLUGS IN. No sides or "framework" may be constructed, the drawdel must suspend, drape, or lay within or on the site model. You want to make sure your either utilize or demonstrate (or reveal) the lamented plywood of our site as well as the base (table) -- as both of these elements are ways in which one uses the site model to design WITH rather than merely to design ON. Layers should include:

_Drawdeled site condition on foam core (should be rigid) -- only 10% of the existing grade may stand as is today
_White museum board (taped) demonstrated a half formal + half programmatic assessment of ONE COHESIVE PROJECT. Slices should no longer be legible as slices, but as a cohesive programmatic strategy
_Think about access/entry sequences as it pertains to site (field manipulation). How do site and object work together? Contrast?


DELIVERABLES DUE FRIDAY pinned up AT 8:30 am

_P03e Cohesive Plan Diagram Printed at 1/8" = 1'-0" scale
_P03f Cohesive Plan Drawdel at 1/8"=1'-0" scale and MUST FIT IN THE SITE MODEL



P03D // MODIFYING THROUGH SITE Wednesday, Mar 25

Remember that Friday will be a WORK DAY so do NOT RUSH through these exercises nor stay up all night. I will give you time in class to continue to work on PARTS OF this assignment.


/ P03a+b+c EDITS

Take time to edit your hybrid maps, typology studies, and axonometric slices, as this step will be CRITICAL as we move forward. Note the following:

_Hybrid Map: Must demonstrate both plan and section, used as a tool for siting and modification, have nine (9) transverse sequence lines included.
_Typology Sections: DENSITY of information, be relational, be INTENTIONAL
_Axon Series: DO IN PLANAR PROJECTION, formatting up to each student, big Idea should connect all SLICES.


/ P03d Siting + Modification Series

At this juncture, you will begin to site, and thus modify, your program slices as they interact with your hybrid maps. Remember to keep your big idea layer as the connection between all nine (9) slices, even if you rearrange or flip the slices, there should still be a clear device that connects all nine. Slices may merge, overlap, or combine -- as well as shift, extend, or contract from the 16'-0" slice. Make good choices -- be intentional!!!! THINK HARD ABOUT THE SEQUENCE OF SPACE, PROXIMITY OF PROGRAM, AND PERFORMANCE OF EACH SLICE.

Step 01_Plan At this juncture, you will begin to site, and thus modify, your program slices as they interact with your hybrid maps. Begin by taking your slices into the map in plan. Align them with your nine (9) sequence lines. How do they need to shift? Expand? Contract? Situate? How do you respond to the site/map? How do the slices help to reinforce the map/site? Do you rearrange the slices? What type of programmatic relationship should be towards Avenue J? As an entrance? Respond to circulation?

Step 03_Section Perspective Using your panoramic and sectional information, translate the modifications you've made to your slices into sectional space. How do depths change or expand? Do you respond to the surrounding buildings? How? How does Sun/Wind change your placement? How do you cycle through plan and section to make modifications to your programmatic slices? How do edges connect? Change? Integrate with the site?

Step 04_ Iterate Do the first two steps three (3) times that demonstrate three (3) iterations of MODIFICATION, SITUATION, ORIENTATION, AND SITING.

Step 0_Model Choose one of your iterations to move forward with. Model the slices using five (5) materials that demonstrate the following programmatic conditions:

_Event = wood
_Operation = museum board
_Transition = chipboard
_Circulation = piano wire (thick)
_Edge = piano wire (thin)
_Big Idea = up to you

Models should be at 1/8"=1'-0" scale and be measured to the SITE MODEL. Do not create a plug, but rather suspend the modeled slices over the site, allowing the void of the site to participate as a resultant. This model should demonstrate clear slices (not be one whole) as well as a clear big idea that connects all of them -- holding the SEQUENCE OF SPACE, PROXIMITY OF PROGRAM, AND PERFORMANCE OF EACH SLICE.


DELIVERABLES DUE FRIDAY pinned up AT 8:30 am

_P03a+b+c EDITS Printed and formatted correctly
_P03d Siting + Modification Three (3) iterations of siting strategy and modifications done to nine (9) slices -- schemes demonstrated in both plan and section perspective ON TOP OF HYBRID MAP. May be printed on small sheet of paper and pinned on top of hybrid for discussion.


DELIVERABLES DUE FRIDAY AT END OF CLASS

_P03d Slice Models Up to nine (9) transverse slices @ 1/8" = 1'-0" to be suspended across site model



P03B + C // TYPOLOGIES + SCALING Monday, Mar 23

As we move forward, you should each focus on the ideas of how SPACE PERFORMS through both your own device+field relationships as well as through precedent study. Be mindful that this should be an EXACT REPRESENTATION, but more so an EXTRACTED DEMONSTRATION that leaves room for modification and change. How do the planes of opacity in your diagrams begin to overlap, extend, and exaggerate each CONDITION. Do not merely replicate your studies, but interpret them. Be sure to note that we will REFINE THESE DIAGRAMS into a working section + plan relationships, thus be creative and exploratory with how they demonstrate your spatial relationships -- both in section and axon.

Again, do not merely replicate the spaces, but extract their PERFORMANCE using planes and lines. Reduce, organize, associate, assess...synthesize, digest. I am not looking for a diagram that merely suggests what WAS but how you can use a DIAGRAM to develop WHAT WILL BE.


/ P03B Spatial Typologies

ty·pol·o·gy noun 1. a classification according to general type, especially in archaeology, psychology, or the social sciences.

To translate your Phase 01 Device and your Phase 02 field into a programmed spatial performance, we will first index the ways in which the SPACE (NOT OBJECT OR FORM) is organized in nine (9) different sections. Each of you should note that both Phase 01 and Phase 02 had programs --MATERIAL FORCE -- and this is no different. We will begin to talk about your previous phases in more refined terms - so do NOT GO BACKWARDS, but move forwards with how you begin to distil ways in which your spaces controlled ink, soap, and glue; you fields manipulated site, people, and trajectory.

As we learn to design THROUGH SECTION, each of the nine (9) sections you choose should demonstrate a SECTIONAL RELATIONSHIP THAT IDENTIFY SPATIAL TYPOLOGIES between at least two (2) of the following PROGRAMMATIC conditions:

_EVENT (n) Collection / Trajectory / Bath
plane, extents, space, CMYK darkest opacity

_TRANSITION (v) Bounding / Overlapping / Segregating
plane, result, area, space, CMYK medium opacity

_OPERATION (n) Service / Reinforcement / Facility / Rest
plane, proximity, adjacency, CMKY lightest opacity

_CIRCULATION (v) Connection / Infrastructure / Sequence
plane, height, width, CMKY solid

_EDGE (n) Interior / Exterior
single line, profile, solid, dash

Note that not EVERY SECTION WILL DEMONSTRATE ALL FIVE CONDITIONS, AND THAT IS OK. Also, each section should be correctly formatted according to the proximity of the others -- meaning correctly spaced and numbered -- similarly to the Manhattan Topographical Studies

Each sectional diagram should be done at 1/16” = 1’-0” scale and include a “measuring scale” (Program Diagram OMA Style) that breaks down the proportion of conditions. Printed portrait format on 11 x 17.

IN ADDITION, you will each do the EXACT SAME DIAGRAMMATIC EXERCISE FOR A PRECEDENT OF YOUR CHOOSING from the list provided. Meaning that you are to translate the precedent by focusing on SPATIAL INTERACTION AND RELATIONSHIPS NOT FORM!!!!!!! Four precedents are allowed:

01 Roman Baths
02 Therme Vals, Peter Zumthor
03 5 BRIDGES / Chadbourne + Doss Architects (Winner of STITCH: an AIA Portland ideas Competition)
04 Leca Swimming Pools, Alvaro Siza

THIS EXERCISE IS TO BE DONE EXACTLY THE SAME FOR BOTH YOUR DEVICE + FIELD AND PRECEDENT.

Device: Include TITLE of project, name, Glassell, ARCH 2502 2015
Precedent: Include TITLE of project, Architect, Location

Include small key plan for each diagram in bottom corner.


/ P03C Scaling Space + Axonometric Slices

Using your Typologies studies, you will translate your diagrams into axonometric diagrams -- demonstrating SPATIAL RELATIONSHIPS OF DEPTH, PROXIMITY, AND EXTENSION. You may MODIFY your axonometric diagrams as you begin to give them depth and/or demonstrate the depth that exists already -- focusing on nine (9) 16’-0” slices at 1/16”=1’-0” scale. DO NOT MERELY EXTRUDE, but learn from what you had, what you learned from the precedent, and what your intentions HAVE BECOME!!!

As you move to axonometric, remember that we are not demonstrating form but space, thus there may still be overlapping areas or ambiguous zones within each slice. Let this be. We will refine as we move forward. Additionally, you should begin to SCALE YOUR SLICES so that they proportionally become NO WIDER THAN 90’-0” OR 5.6”. This means you will have to use your BIG IDEA TO MODIFY EACH SLICE TO WORK BOTH INDIVIDUALLY AND HOLISTICALLY AS A SYSTEM OF SPATIAL TYPOLOGIES.

Each of the nine (9) slices you choose should demonstrate a TYPOLOGICAL RELATIONSHIP between at least two (2) of the following PROGRAMMATIC conditions USING THE SAME OPACITIES AS PREVIOUS TYPOLOGY ASSIGNMENT:

_EVENT (n) Collection / Trajectory / Bath
_TRANSITION (v) Bounding / Overlapping / Segregating
_OPERATION (n) Service / Reinforcement / Facility / Rest
_CIRCULATION (v) Connection / Infrastructure / Sequence
_EDGE (n) Interior / Exterior

_BIG IDEA (v) Concept / Specific Architectural Device / CONNECTS THROUGH ALL SLICES For example, as you formate the slices accordingly to proximity, your big idea (line or plane) may connect all the slices and bridge the spaces between them. Though This Example is sectional, it still demonstrates moments of slice and moments of connection that pass through all of them at different moments.

Each axonometric diagram should be done at 1/16” = 1’-0” scale printed on 11x 17


DELIVERABLES DUE WEDNESDAY pinned up AT 8:30 am

_P03b Typology Diagrams Two (2) sets of Nine (9) Section diagrams oriented with correct proximity. ONE FOR YOUR DEVICE AND ONE FOR YOUR PRECEDENT. Each printed on a separate 11 x 17 portrait format sheet of paper. Device @ 1/16"=1'-0" scale, Precedent @ scale to fit 11 x 17
_P03c Axonometric Slices Nine (9) 16’-0” slices at 1/16”=1’-0” scale oriented with correct proximity printed on 11 x 17 -- landscape or portrait format depending.

INTERMISSION // P03 Wednesday, Mar 04

Phase 02 is officially over! This means we are now in a period of intermission when each of you should DIGEST, REFLECT, AND DISTILL both Phase 01 and Phase 02 as we prepare to begin Phase 03.


/ Sleep
Rest up. The next week before Spring Break will be INTENSE, both individually and collectively.

/ Read
Read James Corner's, The Agency of Mapping: Speculation, Critique, and Invention. In your sketchbook, show evidence of your understanding and/or response to the reading. At least one spread -- recording methods are up to each student.

/ Brainstorm
Each of you should come to studio Friday with a proposal for what medium(s) our collective SITE MODEL should be demonstrated through. Do not propose anything that is NEW to you, as the employment of a STUDIO SITE MODEL is already new to all of you. Consider mediums that help demonstrate SITE, CONTEXT, AND PLACE as you have understood it up to this point.

Your site will be located WITHIN THE LHUCA CAMPUS downtown, which you are welcome to explore to help your brainstorming. However, the actual site will not be revealed until Friday. Site model constraints:

_Must be segmented
_Must be easily moved and carried
_Must be accomplished by the group
_Must be completed in one (1) week MAXIMUM
_Must be able to be constructed by the collective studio, simultaneously to individual assignments



P02E // FINAL DRAWDEL Saturday, Feb 28


Desepite all of our scheduling setbacks, I hope each one of you is pushing forward, developing, editing, and self-critiquing. Don't hesitate to have conversations with your peers about your process and progress today and tomorrow, before our make-up studio. Our new schedule is as follows:

Sunday: Make-Up studio session - ALL EDITS DUE
Monday: Semi-Formal process review - ALL ASSIGNMENTS EXCEPT FINAL DRAWDEL DUE
Wednesday: Project due date - ALL DUE

Please note that you can all go on your own pace for final deliverables at this point, as after today all final assignments will have been assigned. However, I expect you ALL to have either edits or additional moment models from Friday's assignment to further discuss tomorrow as we move forward with more refined edits.

While the schedule above is intended to give time for reflection, design, and CRAFT of your final design, it is up to you what work you will present Monday. Again, it is totally ok to have a process review and allow the discussion to propel your design into Wednesday. I encourage you all to use this time to make good choices, study your current design, and be aggressive with your work.


/ P02d Single Site Plan EDITS

Please take another pass after reflecting on your shotty drawdel to your site plan. This should be both technical (line weights) and content (design based) iterations and be shown by an iterative reprint (for tomorrow). After your final edits are complete you will print three drawings @ 1/16" = 1'-0" scale on 11x17 sheets.

01_Full Single Site Plan on 11x17 vellum OR clear film to overlay on BASE SITE PLAN
02_Modified Site Layers isolated, printed on 11x17 vellum
03_Modified Device Conditions isolated , printed on 11x17 clear film

Each should be refined, clear, intentional, and legible -- including proper edits to your BASE SITE PLAN


/ P02 Shotty Drawdel EDITS

Continue to refine your design by either iterating your shotty drawdel or making changes to the first one (after photo documentation). This should be a working study about how well your design is being executed spatially! And also a solid pass before moving to a more final DRAWDEL. Additional moment drawdels are also a way to study specific areas further and thus iterate.


/ P02e Final Drawdel

After your edits are made, you may begin your final DRAWDEL. While it should be close to your shotty drawdel, it should still be thought of as an ITERATION rather than a final representation.

Using only foam core, museum board, and piano wire (optional), construct a final DRAWDEL of your new field condition for our site @ 1/16" = 1'-0". Be sure to create a "closed" DRAWDEL which means you will need to construct it without ventilation. You should mount a sheet of museum board on foam core to begin. Note that you may build out or back (recess) as much as necessary. The DRAWDEL does not have to articulate the existing buildings unless they are critical to your design. When this is to scale, it is ok to exaggerate some portions to demonstrate your goals.

All white final DRAWDEL should be well crafted and able to hang on the wall.



P02D // SITE PLAN Wednesday, Feb 25

We are now moving into one (1) scheme that should be derived, pulled, or synthesized from your Modification Series. Remember that when choosing one route, you may omit, edit, add, or continue to modify the conditions you ended with. The important thing to focus on is how you translate all of your studies into ONE SINGLE SITE PLAN that can begin to have more LITERAL application on site. As you continue to develop your design, consider access, trajectories, surface manipulation, grade changes, heights, and enclosures -- but be EXTREMELY MINDFUL THAT NO OBJECTS ARE ALLOWED. While there may be enclosures, this should only be demonstrated via surface manipulation (like folding) and not by tacking on roofs, canopies, etc.

THIS PHASE IS ABOUT SITE MODIFICATION AND DISRUPTION and should thus be demonstrated in your site plans as SITE, SURFACE, AND TOPOGRAPHICAL disruptions, not buildings, objects, or even pavilions. Constrastly, do not feel as if you need to change the organizational systems or forms of your field conditions do achieve a literal site plan -- you've already set your self up for this with all twenty four layers!!! TRUST THEM!!!


/ P02d Single Site Plan

Site plans should demonstrate SITE BASED ELEMENTS such as retention walls, access (ramps, stairs, etc), level changes, trajectories/paths, projected surfaces (wires), and how all of these things are being GENERATED BY YOUR FIELD CONDITION STUDIES!!! Take time and care to be intentional, clear, and concise with this next step.

Single Site plan should be derived, synthesized, or pulled directly from your twelve (12) modifications studies -- this step is only about refinement and understanding DISRUPTION more clearly as it applies to site planning. Single site plan should be printed on plain bond paper for Friday and include (but not limited to) the following layers:


_Drawn to and labeled: Scale: 1/16" = 1'-0"
_North Arrow
_Name, 2502, Glassell, etc.
_All SITE field conditions used to modify
_All DEVICE conditions used to modify
_Clear access notations (stairs/ramps, up/down)
_Height tags (per student codification -- meaning "super high" "super low" etc)
_Entry/Exit points (access and egress)
_Circulation paths (assumed trajectories)
_NEW contours (optional)

Site plans should be printed on plain bond paper TO SCALE (1/16"=1'-0") and ready to be critiqued. We will transfer this drawing to clear film over the weekend. Include all layers and TAKE A PASS AT EMPLOYING CMYK APPROPRIATELY.


/ P02d Shotty (almost) Drawdel

Using various prints from your finalized SINGLE SITE PLAN, begin to drawdel the site plan as a way to understand and design its SPATIAL ASPECTS. How high up do you go? Why? How deep into the ground? Why? Where do your relational layers begin to intersect? What does that mean spatially?

Do not drawdel form, but action. Do not drawdel object, but field. These are working drawdels, use them to learn not to represent.

Only include the buildings if you are engaging them. Exaggerate distances to understand the consequences of your design. YOU MAY USE TAPE.


DELIVERABLES DUE FRIDAY pinned up AT 8:30 am

_P01d Single Site Plan Printed on plain bond paper @ 1/16"=1'-0" scale
_P01d Shotty Drawdel Mounted on foam core and constructed @ 1/16"=1'-0"



P02C // MODIFYING Monday, Feb 23

As you move forward with your field conditions, begin to make decisions about which layers want to go together, both for the device and the field, and how those decision change the way in which you begin to SCLAE, ORIENT, SITUATE, AND EVENTUALLY MODIFY.

The goal of this next pass is to situate you DEVICE into the SITE by understanding both sets of FIELD CONDITIONS. Each of you should use the vellum to layer on top of your base site plan and DISCOVER RELATIONSHIPS that demonstrate POTENTIAL of operation -- both formal and diagrammatic. Each of the next steps should slowly begin to MODIFY THE SITE VIA INSERTION OF DEVICE AND VISA VERSA.


Step 01_SCALE
Three (3) iterations of scaling your DEVICE into your SITE using only the field conditions assessed. How does your DEVICE respond to the SITE? How does it relate? Intersect? Compress? Grow? Expand? Extend? Elongate? Why?

Each iteration should be printed on 11 x 17 single sheet of vellum. The number of layers employed is up to each student per their design position/goals. EACH MAY EMPLOY CMYK IF NECESSARY.


Step 02_ORIENT

Three (3) iterations of orienting your DEVICE into your SITE using only the field conditions assessed. How does your DEVICE orient to the SITE? How does it layer within? On top of? How does it connect the site? Direct the site? Integrate the site? Why?

Each iteration should be printed on 11 x 17 single sheet of vellum. The number of layers employed is up to each student per their design position/goals. EACH MAY EMPLOY CMYK IF NECESSARY.


Step 03_SITUATE

Three (3) iterations of situating your DEVICE into your SITE using only the field conditions assessed. How does your DEVICE change when it is introduced to the SITE? How does it shift? How does its edge conditions modify? Why?

Each iteration should be printed on 11 x 17 single sheet of vellum. The number of layers employed is up to each student per their design position/goals. EACH MAY EMPLOY CMYK IF NECESSARY.


Step 04_MODIFY

Three (3) iterations of modifying your SITE TO THE CHANGES IN YOUR DEVICE using only the field conditions assessed. How does your SITE need to shift? Expand? Receive the device? Integrate with the device? Allow for the device? Why?

Each iteration should be printed on 11 x 17 single sheet of vellum. The number of layers employed is up to each student per their design position/goals. EACH MAY EMPLOY CMYK IF NECESSARY.


DELIVERABLES DUE WEDNESDAY pinned up AT 8:30 am


_P01c Twelve (12) MODIFIED Field Conditions/Site Plans in Black, White, and CMYK, printed individually on 11 x 17 VELLUM SHEETS HUNG VIA TWO (2) BINDER CLIPS ON THE WALL @ 1/16"=1'-0" scale



P02B // EXTRACTING Saturday, Feb 21

Great discussion during our Saturday make up studio! As discussed, we will keep pushing forward with our FIELD CONDITIONS and begin to EXTRACT fields from our own DEVICES!!!!!

As you're working through the next tasks, be sure to always remind your self that these fields should be EXPANDABLE and UNIFYING as a way to understand the complexities of the SITE.


/ P02a Index EDITS + VELLUM

Continue to develop, refine, and strengthen your twelve (12) index field conditions and base site plan. These should be concise in their demonstration and show a clear relationship when isolated on a single 11 x 17 sheet of paper.

Print each of the twelve (12) field conditions on INDIVIDUAL 11 X 17 sheets of vellum. Centered on the paper via how the relate to the site, not as a diagram. Meaning when we layer them on top of one another they ALL FALL in the correct location on the site.


/ P02b Extracting Field Device Relationships

Using your plan-section from Phase 01, begin to extract nine (9) field conditions as you understand your own device and your own object-field relationship. While objects should NOT BE INCLUDED, meaning mass, they should be able to be demarcated by the fields you are extracting. Assessing field should be as easy as isolating layers from your plan-section, such as (but not limited to):

_Edges (poche)
_Ink wash
_Line
_Systems
_Construction Lines
_HOW DO YOU ISOLATE YOUR FIELD FROM OBJECTS WITHIN YOUR DEVICE????!!!!

In addition to the nine (9) fields YOU ASSESS, I will require three (3) specific conditions to be included the field studies:

01_Intersections + Axis
02_Sequences (minimum 30 lines)
03_Big Idea/Concept (as a field condition)

All twelve (12) should demonstrate the operability, form, and PERFORMANCE OF YOUR DEVICE by isolating its FIELD CONDITIONS.


DELIVERABLES DUE MONDAY pinned up AT 8:30 am

P02A // INDEXING Wednesday, Feb 18

What a great site visit today! Hopefully you are are full of field notes and have some level of clarity on how one understands an actual site. For this next phase we will be focusing on FIELD CONDITIONS, through the ideas of INDEXING, EXTRACTING, MODIFYING, AND DISRUPTING.


/ P02 Reading: Field Conditions by Stan Allen. You should diagram, brainstorm, and write in your sketchbook and have evidence of at least two (2) full sketchbook spreads.


/ P02a Planar Index Base Site Data

Using our time at the site today, the field notes you collected, and future site visits, you will begin to INDEX the site via four (4) iterative explorations:

01_Scalar Images
02_Base Site Plan
03_Extracted Field Conditions>br> 04_GIF Loop

Be sure to take time to develop your ideas in your sketchbook as you transition or oscillate through tasks, as each one will be influenced by the previous.


01_Scalar Images
Focusing on nine (9) scales, organize an image strip that demonstrates the site at each scale. As mentioned, these images may be 9 gradual scales or three images of three scales -- meaning the scale of the finger, the body, the car, etc. Take time to FRAME EACH IMAGE as these are the foundation for which you will EXTRACT your indexical field conditions.

Arrange all nine (9) images vertically stitched in the manner of a FILM STRIP, each image being 2" x 2" square.


02_Base Site Plan
Using both Google Earth and your analog measurement from today's site visit, begin to construct a base site plan at 1/16" = 1'-0" scale. The base plan should demonstrate clarity of line weights, opacities, and line types. It should include the following layers:

_Google Earth aerial image stitch (light opacity) which suggests YOUR SITE BOUNDARY
_Construction Lines
_Major Dimensions
_Field Notations @ CMYK (6 pt font that includes description of notation and either a dot or X to reference its location on site)
_Contour Lines that include the "objects" on site (buildings, dumpsters, etc.) as seen here
_Include all nine (9) Scalar Images in a technical manner that extends past the aerial image. Employ dashed arcs to indicate the area each of those scales cover.

This should be printed on the plotters and utilize a paper size that helps demonstrate your site.


03_Indexed Field Conditions Using your nine (9) scalar images and their participation on site as assessed in the site plan, begin to extract (and develop) a field condition that is demonstrative of its relational value. Remember that these are similar to diagrams and should be relationship, not representational! Employ only points, lines, or planes.

Twelve Field Conditions @ 11 x 17 each:
_Nine (9) scalar images
_Temporary/Permanent
_Shadow movement (at least three different times)
_Project fields (information above)

Each field condition should be in BLACK AND WHITE and be to scale @ 1/16"=1'-0". Center each on an 11 x 17 sheet of white paper. Use your BASE SITE PLAN as a reference to diagram on top of!!!


04_GIF Loop Raw footage will be fine for Friday, however be sure to have at least one (1) GIF loop, no more than 15 seconds of original footage, that demonstrate a field condition in a different medium. This could range from dirt moving by the wind, to cars on broadway, to shadow movement, to walking on the site, to using your body -- ANYTHING. Take a position with this!!!!


DELIVERABLES DUE FRIDAY AT 8:30 am

PHASE 01 FINAL // DELIVERABLES Friday, Feb 13

We will discuss layout, individual location, and order of presentations Sunday night at 10:00 pm. Please not the following list of deliverables for our Phase 01 Final Review to be held Monday, February 16 at 8:30.


/ Final Board - Phase 01 All of the following should be included on one single "board" layout. Final Model to be hung intentionally to the right side or from the ceiling.

_P01I Final Device (well crafted final model to be hung on wall or furr down)
_P01H Section Axons, Perspectives, or Transverse Sections At least five (5)
_P01G Final Plan-Section With all layers including dimensions and interior force dimensioning

_P01C/D Uber Drawdel + Hybrid Do not print hybrid separately
_P01B Diagnostic Diagrams Three (3) hung sequentially: Matter, Tempo, Substrate
_P01 Initial Pour + Object Tested Hung first with object situated in place
_P01 A Identification Drawings Hung either separately or binder clipped


ALL WORK IS DUE AT 8:30 MONDAY MORNING READY FOR REVIEW.



P01G+H // PLAN-SECTION + AXONS Monday, Feb 09

Iterate, iterate, iterate.

Refine the current layers of the plan-section, taking time to be more saturated and intentional with your ink wash and dystopian background layers. Per our discussions today, be sure to have a full iteration on Wednesday that includes depth, LEGIBILITY, and intention -- be demonstrative rather than merely representation. THIS MAY MEAN YOU NEED TO ITERATE AND CHANGE YOUR DESIGN AS WELL.

As we move into the world of "board" think about how you take control of the "white space" -- for fun, see Missing Missy -- where and how large do you place your axons? Be sure to keep the plan section to the left, as this will keep the drawing sequence of diagrams prior.


/ P01g Plan Section REFINING

Keep going on these - focusing on integrating you background field with your device. Check the following:

_White outs - variations of white opacities
_Background integration/intersection of drawing
_Line work legibility
_Section CUT LINES
_Sectional/Spatial legibility
_Construction line participation
_Size of paper/position on paper (left-ish)


/ P01h Section Axons Five (5)

Using your five (5) sequence lines, take a transverse sectional axon for each. This means your cut should face the same direction so that the series of axons reads a whole. Each should demonstrate the spatial consequences of your design as well as the tempo of operation (spacing). At this point, we will not include any diagrammatic layers, so focus on placement and clarity of the following:

_Cut lines / Poche
_White outs?
_Size
_Placement
_Relation to sequence lines
_Linework clarity


DELIVERABLES DUE WEDNESDAY AT 8:30 am

_P01g Plan Section One (1) 1:1 scale Plan-Section of your Device 01 printed, INCLUDING ALL LAYERS cited previously.
_P01h Section AXONS Include five (5) sectional axonometric drawings on your plan-section board.



P01G // PLAN-SECTION KEEPS GOING Friday, Feb 06

Hope all the guests were super helpful and studio was packed with discussions, testing, and productivity!!! I very much look forward to seeing your work on Monday.

As discussed previously, Friday's session should have helped you develop your plan-section drawings more articulately -- including the section cut lines, sequences lines, SPATIAL DEMONSTRATIONS, and graphic legibility. Thus this weekend you should concentrate your efforts on refining the layers discussed and adding (and or further developing) the following layers:

_Ink Wash May use the projector + water color paper to achieve this. Make sure and scan all work done for Friday, even if it is on bond paper, as this layer will help add depth to the final drawing. SPEND TIME ON THIS.

_Dystropian Background Take a pass at this, as well will further discuss the successes and failures we see in class. Again, we have time to edit this so it is more important to take a position now and refine as we go. This should begin to become a field condition in which the drawing is situated, adding depth rather than a solid "background."

_Linework refinement Both construction lines, information beyond (at least three (3) linewieghts), and CUT LINES, need to be refined and adjusted to both SPATIAL ITERATION AND GRAPHIC LEGIBILITY, especialy with the background being introduced.

_Refined Sequence Lines Be clear in the five (5) moments you have chosen for your section axonometric drawings.

_White Out Take a pass at employing white out for either plane, mass, or line. Again, this is just a first pass so don't be scared to try things.


DELIVERABLES DUE MONDAY AT 8:30 am

_P01g Plan Section One (1) 1:1 scale Plan-Section of your Device 01 printed, INCLUDING ALL LAYERS cited above and the post below.
_P01f Device 01 COMPLETE At this point, all of you should have completed the tape model of Device 01 and tested this. As this model is what should be influencing both the actual and assumed aspects of your drawing.



P01G // PLAN-SECTION Wednesday, Feb 04

Time to STOP modeling (unless you are Lawson) and move towards drawing as a means to assess, DESIGN, and REFINE YOUR OBJECT-FIELD DEVICES. Be sure to use the drawings not only to REPRESENT what you have, but to learn through, design with, and make changes towards a more refined, controlled, intentional device.

These drawings are intended to demonstrate the technical, atmospheric, and performative aspects of your project, and thus should take time and precision to develop. Additionally, you should use this for both formal and graphic testing of how the spatial relationships begin to be demonstrated through one clear system. How do you use these drawings to help make new decisions? Iterations? DESIGN THROUGH SECTION!!!

KEEP YOUR TESTED DEVICE WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES, meaning hung appropriately on the wall or furr down so that you continually look towards it for information, refinement, and OPERATION.


/ P01g Plan-Section continued...

THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP IS DECIDING WHERE TO CUT YOUR PLAN-SECTION. Choose a cut that moves through the ENTIRE Device. Though this cut may be diagonal, it should not jog through. IT MAY BARELY SHAVE OFF AREAS, but be sure and choose a section that completely demonstrates all the layers, information, and spatial consequences of your device. How do you show mass, line, and plane and the RELATIONSHIPS OF YOUR OBJECT FIELD MOST SUCCESSFULLY? You may edit your design THROUGH SECTION and begin refining notions of stereotomic, poche, enclosure, plane, field, etc. Be sure to focus on the information beyond -- meaning which direction will you be looking?

The following layers should be complete:

_Layer 01: Construction Lines = Order, System, Proportion
These should be indicative of all formal and spatial relationships you have developed AND REFINED. Use these to see moments of intersections, proportions, and systems. They should apply to the entire device (depth) and not merely the section cut you have chosen.


_Layer 02: Ink Wash = Trajectory of Collection
Using rectilinear areas, define the trajectory of the collection by LAYERING WASHES OF INK onto one another. Don't merely "fill" areas of collection, but allow the layers of each wash to evolve into a dense area of collection. Tape off each rectilinear area, be it thin or thick, and do one full, consistent wash. Then tape of the next trajectory and do the same. These should be assembled via LAYERED TECHNIQUE, as in the Beaux Arts Style of watercoloring. Take time with this!!!!

Be sure and scan often, so that it is easy to add or subtract as your digitally superimpose the layers. Email me with questions!!!


_Layer 03: Cut lines = Thick Edges
While we will decide how to poche later, your section cut lines should still stand out and clearly demonstrate the edges of the spaces cut. DO NOT MERELY GIVE EVERYTHING THE SAME THICKNESS, but rather play with variable thickness, as if you lamented the foam core in areas to reinforce the "mass" or "stereotomic" portions of your model. Thickness relates to space, which relates to intention.


_Layer 04: Information Beyond = Depth of Space / Relationsihps
Be sure and use at least three (3) additional line weights to demonstrate the device beyond the cut line. This should demonstrate depth and various spatial relationships of your object field.


_Layer 05: Sequence Lines = Tempo, Frequency inherent to your device
Make good choices with these. They should demonstrate critical moments within your device that will be later translated into section axonometric drawings. Minimum five (5) sequence line -- though you may have up to seven (7).


REMEMBER I WILL NOT BE HERE FRIDAY, SO BE PREPARED FOR A RIGOROUS WORK DAY WITH OUR GUEST CRITICS.


DELIVERABLES DUE FRIDAY AT 8:30 am

_P01g Plan Section One (1) 1:1 scale Plan-Section of your Device 01 printed, INCLUDING ALL LAYERS CITED ABOVE.


P01F+G // DEVICE 01 Monday, Feb. 02


/ P01f Device 01 EDITS complete / tape model

Each of you should EDIT AND COMPLETE your tape model of Device 01. Feel free to change and add/subtract per our desk cries this morning. Try to be clear in your intention and assess what needs to be exaggerated, what is superfluous, and what is truly performing how you intend. We will test on Wednesday, so please take advantages of the tape model method, make good choices and don't be afraid to pull it apart and change it!


/ P01g Plan Section @ 1:1

Take time on this next step, as the MOST CRITICAL PART IS CHOOSING WHERE TO CUT YOUR FULL PLAN-SECTION!!!! Choose a cut that moves through the ENTIRE Device 01. Though this cut may be diagonal, it should not jog through. Be sure and choose a section that completely demonstrates all the layers, information, and spatial consequences of your device. How do you show mass, line, and plane and the RELATIONSHIPS OF YOUR OBJECT FIELD MOST SUCCESSFULLY? You may edit your design THROUGH SECTION and begin refining notions of stereotomic, poche, enclosure, plane, field, etc.

Your drawings may be printed whole or tiled for Wednesday's discussion. Take care with line weights and line types, as the focus is on clarify of line work rather than poche or fill.

Base layers to include:

_Construction Lines
_Cut Lines
_At least Four (4) additional line weights
_Information Beyond
_Min. Five (5) sequence lines

Optional layers: For graphic experimentation

_Poche @ CMYK or Grey only
_Experimenting with CMKY linework in addition to black/grey linework
_Dystopian Background - grey, off-white, neutral that works with both black and white line work AND your CMYK choice


/ P01 BIG IDEA plus title and parti diagram

Refine and edit your BIG IDEA per our discussions today. Be clear, concise, and intentional. Include a refined TITLE and small, reductive PARTI DIAGRAM formatted together on one, single 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper.


DELIVERABLES DUE WEDNESDAY AT 8:30 am

_P01f Device 01 EDITS Complete and EDIT your tape model that demonstrates a 1:1 scale translation of your 50/50. No datum, no diagram

P01F // DEVICE 01 Friday, Jan 30

"Whereas when you start to look at variations in a field, difference is no longer isolated but forms emergent wholes not reducible to the sum of their parts" - Atlas of Novel Tectonics, Geometry p64

Now that we have been able to test, discuss, and digest the ways in which your tape model is performing, it is time to SEPARATE yourself from the diagram, the datum, and the surface. Moving forward you need to distill the spatial "event" inherent to your 50/50, how do you begin to decide what is superfluous? What needs to be edited? Change in slope? More tectonic? More filtration? More stereotomic? How does MASS operate different than PLANE?

Einstein Tomb, Lebbeus Woods / Bldg Blog


/ P01f Device 01 tape model

Each of you should develope one (1) tape model that is made from only museum board, foam core, or piano wire at a 1:1 scale of your 50/50 tape model. No diagram should be printed or image superimposition. This step is about taking control over the device without the help of the image to reinforce or describe what is happening. We will test again on Monday, so please take advantages of the tape model method, make good choices and don't be afraid to pull it apart and change it!

Though these are still the same size/ scale, it is possible they begin to shrink as you get more refined. There should be NO REMNANTS OF THE DATUM, but more so refine how the datum gets integrated back into the device. Think about where it can provide more enclosure? Interiority? Exteriority?

How do you take control of the the SOURCE AND THE TERMINUS. As we saw during testing, this is super important. Be clear in where and how you pour -- both formally and performatively. Be clear in how you collect, disperse, streamline, the terminus. WHY?

Think THING. Think DEVICE. Think MECHANISM.


DELIVERABLES DUE MONDAY AT 8:30 am

_P01f Device 01 Tape model that demonstrates a 1:1 scale translation of your 50/50. No datum, no diagram.



P01E // ITERATION Wednesday, January 28

Be sure and sleep, digest, and assess your next steps of the process. Use this time for QUALITY ITERATION. This may mean taking apart you 50/50, restructuring, adding, omitting, etc. Think about how if one removes the diagram can one still understand the spatial, devical, relationships of your OBJECT-FIELD DEVICE?

BE INTENTIONAL, BE CLEAR, BE SPECIFIC IN YOUR EDITS. You may leave the datum and diagrams behind if you wish.

MAKE GOOD CHOICES!!!!


/ P01e 50/50 ITERATION Tape, make, edit

There is no "new" assignment, but rather edits to your 50/50. Edits may depart from the 50/50 constraints and become more device-like. Be sure and DOCUMENT this after you complete it, as we will TEST ON THESE FRIDAY. So be prepared to pour on top of them (meaning they are sturdy enough to receive material force.)


/ Reading: Atlas of Novel Tectonics "Geometry" pages 37-70

Read the selection carefully, digesting it in terms of the current stage of your project. Layer in ideas from our reading today "The Storm and the Fall: by Lebbeus Woods.

Each of your are to start a "Conversation" on the sidebar link. You may pose a question, response, or observation -- creating a dialogue within the studio. Be sure and see the template I have started and follow suit. Each student must post TWO (2) RESPONSES, QUESTIONS, OR OBSERVATIONS.


DELIVERABLES DUE FRIDAY AT 8:30 am:

/ P01e Fifty-Fifty ITERATION tape mode/drawdel EDITS @ 1:1 scale translation. Leaning more towards device than drawdel. DOCUMENT THIS BEFORE CLASS, AS WE WILL TEST ON THESE FRIDAY!!!

P01E // FIFTY-FIFTY Monday, January 26

Now that you each have a hold on both the process of drawdeling and the spatial consequences of such a method, it's time to slowly translate and refine into your first DEVICE.

Using your Uber Drawdle as a base -- meaning as a base assessment of spatial relationships, object and field, and your conceptual execution, begin to separate yourself from the datum and integrate devical elements within your drawdel.


/ P01e Fifty-Fifty Tape model/drawdel

The "fifty-fifty" should demonstrate half device/model half drawdel/diagram. This is one step in your SLOW translation to full device. Consider how this step can be used to test stereotomic versus tectonic, mass versus plane, line versus enclosure, etc. DO NOT take this as a 50% segment of completion, but choose how to integrate 50% drawdel WITH 50% device. For example, you may leave the planes on foam core and glue your hybrid diagram to them, thru out the entire fifty-fifty and then employ museum board to begin to poche mass or enclosure within the object field study. Think about how one densely distributes the ratio of drawdel to model/device.

This is intended to be a 1:1 scale translation of your drawdel, and thus hold its original size and depth. However, you should begin to detach yourself from the DATUM and make choices about what is superfluous in your drawdel. Use your BIG IDEA to help guide your decisions. BE SURE AND ARTICULATE AT LEAST THREE (3) ORDERING SYSTEMS WITHIN THE NEW 50-50 -- these should already be existing or resonating within your uber drawdel, meaning these are not new.

This is a TAPE MODEL/DRAWDEL, thus should be faster at constructing. But this should demonstrate the same level of rigor, specificity, and intentionality as previous studies. Do not lean on shotty craft, but rather let the tape give you the time to propel your designs further.

REMEMBER TO USE TRASH PAPER SKETCHES OR DIAGRAMS TO HELP YOU WORK THROUGH THIS PROCESS.

/ MATERIALS ALLOWED:

_Foam Core (ONLY WHITE)
_Card Stock
_Museum Board / Illustration Board
_Piano Wire (use wisely)

Don't forget, 50% of this should demonstrate a drawdel = printed diagram demonstrating spatial relationships, and 50% of this should demonstrate device = moving away from datum, thickness, mass + line, "white"

/ LAYERS TO ADD / REFINE / SPATIALLY IDENTIFY:

_SOURCE AND TERMINUS AND STRUCTURE (more than one? why?)
_Stereotomic AND tectonic (MUST HAVE BOTH)
_Integrate / Segregate/ Intersection of material force (glue, soap, ink - WHY?)
_Direction and speed (DOES IT CHANGE?)
_Collection and Enclosure (how many points within?)
_Section and Elevation (how do these different views offer different understanding? relationships?)
_Three (3) ordering systems (read your drawdel, remember your ramble, these already exist in your drawdel, how do you refine them? Further identify them spatially? Think simple)
_Thick versus Thin (MUST HAVE BOTH)
_Solid versus Void (how do you achieve this without the datum?)
_Mechanical verus Kinetic (HOW DO YOU TAKE CONTROL OF THE DEVICE?)


/ P01e BIG IDEA plus title

Continue your "ramble" via more articulated, constructed thoughts that help reinforce the specific position you are taking with your drawdel. I encourage you to write this FIRST as it can help you make decisions about what to focus on, what's superfluous, and perhaps most importantly, what should be drawdeled and what should be more devical.

Write 1-2 paragraphs of your BIG IDEA. ADDITIONALLY, give your project a TITLE.


DELIVERABLES DUE WEDNESDAY AT 8:30 am:

/ P01d Uber Drawdel EDITS only if applicable

/ P01e Fifty-Fifty tape mode/drawdel @ 1:1 scale translation of your Uber Drawdel

/ P01e BIG IDEA 1-2 paragraphs plus TITLE



PHASE 01D // UBER DRAWDELS Friday, Jan 23


DRAWDEL: (n.) Drawing + Model; a three-dimensional extraction of two-dimensional information.

This next exercise will focus spatializing your diagrams, thus creating a 3-dimensional diagram – A DIAGRAM OF A DIAGRAM. The DRAWDEL process should involve your own extraction of information from your object/field relationship that begins to expose spatial RELATIONSHIPS you have already defined two-dimensionally -- how the parts of the system work together to identify all of your Hybrid Synthesis layers SPATIALLY. Using the hybrid diagram (after edits are made as discussed today) begin to make decisions about what relationships warrant raising up, diving down, folding over, overlapping, or staying level and how these choices change the spatial consequences.

What happens at points of intersection? How do you demonstrate the RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN LAYERS SPATIALLY? How do you RETAIN the same relationships from the hybrid diagram in the midst of extracting in spatially? In other words, how do you begin to demonstrate compression three dimensionally? Collection? Tension? Extension? Enclosure? Does the drawdel demonstrate all layers simultaneously, or begin to focus and omit spatial ideas across the full drawdel??


/ STEPS:

00_START it may be better to start by mounting the whole diagram on a piece of foam core using spray adhesive. This may mean you segment the foam core and use tape on the BACK to keep it stable.
01 PRINT additional portions of your hybrid diagram to drawdel from (print at least 4 copies of each tiled segment at a time, meaning don’t print the whole diagram more than once)
02 PASTE or mount the hybrid diagram to foam core, this begins the drawdel process by establishing a datum.
03 CUT fold, insert, facet, void, solid, field, object, intersect, superimpose using ONLY pieces of the original image itself. Students may use heavy bond paper, card stock, or any sturdy type of paper that can be PRINTED ON.
04 SIZE drawdels must demonstrate the original size of the hybrid diagram @ 1:1 scale. However, students are encouraged to assess the datum in terms of carving it away or shifting moments in to help reinforce three dimensional notions of space.
05 CONSTRAIN Drawdel must be same length and width of original hybrid diagram. May be min 4” and max 12” deep.
06 READY SET GO much of the drawdel process involved response and reading of your own hybrid diagrams. Take time to make “study models” of particular instances where you are investigating the spatial consequences. Please look towards examples of DRAWDELS from Lebbeus Woods:Siteline Vienna Urban performance Structures, 1998Digging for Architecture, Voiding the Solid, Pin-up: Dibujos and Drawdels, Juan Gris, The Book pt. 13, Smout Allen, University of Florida, Artifact: D3 2013


/ MATERIALS ALLOWED:

_Foam Core (ONLY WHITE)
_Card Stock
_Museum Board / Illustration Board
_Piano Wire (use wisely)

PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLY 10% OF YOUR DRAWDEL MAY BE "WHITE" AS SEEN FROM PLAN VIEW. Meaning that you may only use white to omit or reinforce certain type of layer interceptions. You may, however, use white to help structure the drawdel, etc.


/ FAQ:

01 Foam core datum DOES NOT have to be level as you rearrange, but it can be if your concept will it so.
02 Take time and care with CRAFT!!!! As these are delicate models, bad craft completely takes away from any conceptual goals and makes it hard to understand. PRINT EARLY!!!!!
03 THINK ABOUT THE METHOD OF ASSEMBLY (FOLDING, SHIFTING, ETC) VERSUS THE SPATIAL CONSEQUENCES.

/ INSTAGRAM Upload at least two (2) images using the hashtag: #drawdelislife of your progress/questions/concerns.


PHASE 01C // HYBRID + SYNTHESIS Wednesday, Jan 21

Our next exercise is to focus on the idea of hybridizing through synthesis as a means to expose NEW SYSTEMS inherent to YOUR object-field diagrams.

/ P01b EDITS

Begin by editing your three (3) diagnostic diagrams (matter, tempo, substrate). Please take time to be super specific with these edits, as discussed in studio today. Remember to be clear in terms of line weights, line types, intersections, overlaps, opacities, fills, points, and planes. Everything you employ should follow a rule set that is determined by your own reading of the diagram.

/ P01c RAMBLE

Via stream of consciousness, begin a “ramble” about your diagrams -- both the diagnostic and hyrbrid synthesis. How are you reading your diagrams? What are you diagrams suggesting about your object field relationship? What type of POSITION IS YOUR DIAGRAM FORMING AND THUS HELPING YOU DEVELOP A BIG IDEA? This may be done as a single stream of writing, at least one paragraph long, format of your choosing.

/ P01c Hybrid Synthesis Diagram

syn·the·sis (sinTHəsəs) noun
1.combination or composition, in particular. the combination of ideas to form a theory or system.

After you edit your three (3) diagrams (matter,tempo, substrate), begin to synthesize them into one, single hybrid diagram. This process of combination is intended to be methodical in terms of reconfiguring the diagrams to exist as one. Consider how one may omit, change, add, or iterate certain layers from your diagnostic diagrams to reinforce a more singular idea in the hybrid. At what specific points do certain layers intersect? Overlap? What type of information is gained by overlapping them in specific ways? How does the combination begin to take ownership of all three? Think iterative.

Remember that through synthesis, one should realize NEW SYSTEMS and NEW LAYERS of information.

Added layers:

_Three (3) Systems of Organization (for example: proportions, direction, circulation, territories, etc.)

These added layers may either introduce a NEW GRAPHIC SYSTEM or language or methodically REINFORCE existing systems within the diagrams. Be dense, be clear, be responsive, be critical.

PHASE 01B // DIAGNOSTICS Friday, Jan 16

Great testing day Friday! I hope each of you feels that the testing was well documented and most importantly, that you have enough information to move forward into these next big diagrams! Please note that if necessary you may need to READ THE READING AGAIN to help you with your diagramming process. Think DENSITY OF INFORMATION with these!!!!

As we move forward, take control over how you are reading the object + field relationship presented on Friday. How do your diagrams move through both the object, and its areas of collection or residue, as well as the field, and its evidentiary role in the operation of the object?


/ P01a IDENTIFICATION EDITS

Make sure and edit each of the four (4) elevations that you presented Friday. Each of you should know what areas need work -- line weight love, construction lines, notations, and DENSITY!!!

Additionally, be clear in the orientation (vertical or horizontal) that these four (4) drawings should sit as a collection.


/ P01b DIAGNOSTIC DIAGRAMS

When diagramming, employ the use of tools you know: opacity, line type, line weight, poche, arrows (small ones), superimposition, ONE SINGLE COLOR ONLY - CMYK, image layering, nodes, dashes, etc…EACH of the following three (3) diagrams are to be 1:1 scale of your testing results – make good choices about how wide your diagrams should be.

Note: Each of the three (3) diagrams should be the same height and width, as well as utilize the SAME elevation you choose from your Identification series. However, each diagram will demonstrate different layers of information from the elevation -- while keeping the same orientation and view.

Take time to look through the library or online resources to investigate means of graphic analysis. From Topographical Intersections or Drawing Architecture. BE CREATIVE, PUSH YOURSELF, ASK QUESTIONS OF YOUR GRAPHICS AND YOUR OBJECT + FIELD RELATIONSHIP!!!!!

Take an image of your diagnostic testing. This images should be taken with the test strip flat, either on the floor or pinned higher on the wall so the bottom portion is included.


Iterative Diagnostic Diagrams: 1:1 (Same size as the initial testing sheet)

Using a front elevation image of your testing strip + object as your background, diagram each of the layers mentioned below to develop three (3) diagrams that demonstrate a SYSTEM DESCRIBING THE FORMAL, EXPERIENTIAL, AND ORGANIZATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF YOUR OBJECT + FIELD RELATIONSHIP. You should go through iterations of this -- don't rely on your first pass, ITERATE, ITERATE, ITERATE. And take time to TEST PRINT! Use these diagrams as part of your individual foundation to asses how you, specifically, illustrate DENSITY OF INFORMATION IN ONE DRAWING. THINK MULTIPLICITY!


_Diagram 01: Matter: physical substance in general, as distinct from mind and spirit; (in physics) that which occupies space and possesses rest mass, esp. as distinct from energy.

08_Plus 1 per student, be creative! How do you read your diagram and assess what is missing? What types of layers will help YOUR diagram read more specifically to YOUR object + field relationship?


_Diagram 03: Substrate An underlying layer; a substratum.

How does one begin to show how each material layered into, on top of, within, under, the others? How do you illustrate the complexity of these patterns, the MULTIPLICITY of this operation through object and field?

Substrate = STRUCTURE / EFFECT / RESULT

Substrate layers:

00_NO BASE IMAGE, WHITE BACKGROUND

PHASE 01A // IDENTIFICATION Wedneday, Jan 14

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


/ IDENTIFICATION DRAWINGS:

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

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

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


_Required Layers:

0 Image take a flat elevation image of your object WITH A NEUTRAL BACKGROUND.

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

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

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

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

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

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

7 Operation Using dashed lines, indicate how your object operates with material force (may use CMYK for this layer only)

8 Derivation Either through a ghosted image or through lighter line work (or dashed depending) demonstrate at least two (2) derivations of the device's operation.

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


/ READING:

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

Each student must have four (4) pages/sketches/diagrams illustrating their interpretation and understanding of the reading including some verbiage, words, or writing.


ALL WORK SHOULD BE PINNED UP NOT LATER THAN 8:30 am, Friday, Jan 16. ANY late work will warrant an incomplete for the day.
