Congratulations! You have completed phase one of Unity Village. Utilizing the information and models you have generated it is now time to tackle the design development of the community floors. Working in groups of two or three, you will now develop a holistic design for either the ground, first, or second floor.
IT’S ALL A PROCESS
As was the case with project one, your design process is an extremely important part of this phase. As such you should strive to record all stages of your work via daily entries (3-5 posts a week) with photos and drawings on your blog. Committing to document the process daily will help us recognize the amount of work you are putting into the project and prevent you from having the headache of gathering your thoughts the night before the deadline.
SMELLS LIKE DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
In this phase you will develop the following (at a minimum):
FOR FRIDAY, 3|19
- A solid concept statement and collage of supporting images/precedents
- Collection of standards for specific interior spaces
- A series of sketches
FOR MONDAY, 3|22
- A table showing how user needs are met in the interior and exterior spaces of the floor
- A series of interior perspectives illustrating the human experience
- A dimensioned floor plan
FOR FRIDAY, 3|26
- A reflected ceiling plan
- A digital materials board for the floor
- A rendered floor plan
As part of your design development you will add to the large model shell you created in phase one to showcase the decisions you make in phase two. In addition, the digital model produced in phase one should be further developed to reflect the design of phase two and as such should contain the addition of the following layers:
o Interior walls
o Interior Details
Work smart. Be sure to utilize your digital and physical models in completing the various design development objectives. Be certain, however, to manipulate your digital model in such a way that it reflects your skills in hand and digital rendering.
Requirements for final documentation will be discussed well in advance of the project deadlines. However, you should keep in mind that you final documentation should take digital form and work to capture appropriate images during the course of the semester to make this process as painless as possible. Your final grade will not be posted until complete documentation has been submitted following all guidelines and requirements.
