HOPE YALL DONT SOUND LIKE THIS DURING THE CRIT!!!!!!!!

(That's great Doris--can you find videos of other architecture critics as well?)

I can't take responsibility for this act of YouTube genius. I think Nik posted this lovely creature.

ZEAL TAKES CREDIT AS USUAL, DONT FRONT:)

CRACKING THE WHIP?

 

Not exactly Desk Crits, but brief check-in meetings where we tell you that whatever you are doing is absolutely fine, and give you official approval to bend the rules or lie about how much stuff fits in your container. Doris and Peter will offer soothing suggestions and helpful guidance. One of the ways we can be most helpful is to help you decide on priorities for your work in the next few days, and discuss issues of formatting and presentation of images and information.

 

 

ITEMS TO CONSIDER ON EVERY SHEET

  • Line Weights, quality of image and presentation technique
  • Dimensions, scales, north arrows
  • Descriptive text and labeling--remember that your drawing set should be able to stand on its own without verbal presentation
  • Spelling Check! We will not tolurate any errers!

 

 

MUST HAVE DRAWINGS

  • Vicinity plans, geographic location, climate information
  • Site plans--maybe at multiple scales
  • Site analysis
  • Building plans, sections, elevations--of course
  • Large scale sections, foundation to roof, showing all structural connections and assemblies
  • Diagrams of energy and environmental systems, waste management, water collection
  • Accessibility, Egress, Circulation Drawings
  • Container loading, sequence of assembly, etc.
  • Details, especially at connections or material transitions

 

MISC ITEMS THAT MIGHT BE HELPFUL

  • Write down your talking points, presentation run-through/outline, design objectives & priorities
  • Appendix: keep process and cut sheets handy in case you need to reference them during review
  • Models! Bring your process models as well. Be sure to document the models in photographs, which should be included in your book.

Mashup, is a musical genre which, in its purest form, consists of the combination of the music from one song with the a cappella from another. Ideally, the music and vocals belong to completely different styles/genres generally considered to be incompatible, yet skillfully and artfully combined into a pleasurably euphonic hybrid. Make it work...

HYBRID VEHICLE?

 


HOW PORTABLE IS YOUR ENERGY SYSTEM?

Monday, November 12

Desk crits with Peter. Tell me what you learned from last weeks CBD workshop, and let's get caught up on your overall project integration. For the rest of this week, we will be concentrating on pulling together all of the information learned in the mid-review and CBD workshops, and trying to fully synthesize and coordinate all of the parts of the buildings.

Wednesday, November 14

We'll start the class with a quick pinup of ONLY YOUR DRAWING INDEX SHEETS! The purpose of this is for everyone to see the full range of what each team is planning to present in their final package, and to have a solid checklist of what needs to be done in the next several weeks before the final reviews. By Wednesday, you should have a VERY DETAILED drawing index sheet. There should be a thoughtfully developed drawing sequence, a rock-solid page numbering system, and a scale indicated for each drawing page. You should be prepared to explain what is on each sheet, even if you haven't started the actual drawing sheet yet. OF COURSE you can continue to revise and update the index as you proceed, but you should have a CLEAR PLAN

    • at this stage for every part of the presentation so there is NO REASON FOR PANIC to set in later on...

CBD Workshops are focused workshops with guest professionals working with the students to help refine their proposals.

 

Developing your systems

 

 

Select COMPONENTS for each of the following systems and find data sheets (select sizes and production yields)

Post your list of links on your wikifront page, please.

The design challenge is how they will compliment each other.

Remember the MashUp principal: Sympathetic structures and melodies!

WIKIUP SUPERSHARE FRIDAY!

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5 STUDIO

American Heritage Dictionary - wick·i·up also wik·i·up (wĭk'ē-ŭp')

 

1. n. A frame hut covered with matting, as of bark or brush, used by nomadic Native Americans of North America.

2. n. A social or instructional gathering focused on the projected contents of a wiki page or pages as an alternative to analog information pinned up on a wall. cf: "pinup"

WIKIUP

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Apache wickiup, by Edward S. Curtis, 1903
Apache wickiup, by Edward S. Curtis, 1903

A wigwam or wickiup is a domed single-room dwelling used by certain Native American tribes. The term wickiup is generally used to label these kinds of dwellings in American Southwest and West. Wigwam is usually applied to these structures in the American Northeast. The use of these terms by non-Native Americans is somewhat arbitrary and can refer to many distinct types of Native American structures regardless of location or cultural group including the tipi.

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

MONDAY, OCTOBER 1 STUDIO

At the beginning of studio on Monday we will have a class discussion about the concepts of componentization, establishing the basic guidelines for the further design of your projects in the context of prefabricated building systems. At 3:30, we will have a guest presentation about technical glass products, particularly focusing on fire rating and exiting requirements. The latter part of the studio will have desk crits with Peter to discuss your project and component focus in greater specificity.

 

As discussed briefly at the end of studio on Friday, each team has been assigned as editors of pages in the Official Catalog of Components--see the links in the "Resources" Section of the sidebar. We'll go over this in more detail in class, but in summary the page editors are helping to find and organize information for the topics, but it is expected that everyone will be using all of the information to one degree or another, and everyone will be contributing links and information to every category.

 

In preparation for studio, have a look at the topics assigned to your team name, and do some advance browsing and looking for resources. Remember that the goal of this catalog is to find currently available solutions--catalog components that are available for use, and which have detailed specifications available. For instance, we will need to know the weight, dimensions, and capacities of each item, so we can think about how they will load in our containers. For energy systems, such as solar panels, what is the output in k/w per square meter of surface area? How do we determine the energy needs for the buildings, so we know what size collectors to specify?

 

We are engaging in the process of PARAMETRIC DESIGN. We need to know the parameters within which we are designing, and the specific performance goals of our buildings. By making buildings out of prefabricated and manufactured components, we can anticipate how the buildings will perform based on existing data.

 

 

Also on Monday, we will discuss a design competition opportunity that is very closely related to our studio topic. It is due on January 15, and anyone interested is encouraged to participate. It seems that much of the work developed for studio could be directly applicable to the design competition, and you may want to consider adapting your studio project somewhat to more closely conform to the goals of the competition (but only with careful coordination with your instructors....). Here is a link to the competition: http://www.openarchitecturenetwork.org/challenge

FYI: GOOGLE AERIAL TO RHINO CONTOUR LINES & SMOOTH NURBS SURFACE**

KUDOS: this process was generated by Erik and Nick, total genious. thanks for sharing.

****if anyone comes up with an equivalent process for ArchiCAD or 3DS or Maya, please post the instructions.

 

-zoom into your LOCAL area in Google Earth

-make sure terrain option is checked on left sidebar

 

-concurrently, open a new SketchUp File

-Click on Google Globe Icon (with Yellow Arrow) "Get Current View". This will import your 2D Google Aerial

-Next to the Google Gloce Icon, Click Brown Surface Icon "Toggle Terrain". This will make a very triangulated 3D mesh of your Aerial surface

-Use the pencil command to trace signifigant site features for your scale reference later. The pencil lines should "stick" or "magnatize" to your surface (zoom in 3D to check this is happening)

 

Export 3DS or OBJ file (you'll need Goggle Pro, free 7day download)

 

Open your 3DS or OBJ file in Rhino

-The surface comes in as a mesh

-To Rebuild your mesh as a smooth NURBS Surface follow the following steps:

 

1.

Toolbar->Curve->Curve from Object->Contour->Distance between Contours->1m (hit enter)This will give you jagged contours from your mesh surface

2.

Select Contours, type in "patch"

For a flat site, input a stiffness factor of 10

For a curvy, mountainous terrain, input stiffness factor of .01

*you might have to experiment with these factors depending on your topography

U=30

V=30

*number of spans in surface

 

This will yeild a smooth NURBS surface that you can then extract smooth contour lines from (Repeat step 1)

 

 


 

 

 

Metric Engineering Scales - metric scale measurements is the standard in most of the world. The principles are similar. You have to get used to measurements expressed in meters (m) and millimeters (mm). One meter is slightly larger than one yard. A millimeter is 1/1000 of a meter. Metric scales are usually based on ratios. A ratio is the relationship of one measurement to another. For example, metric plot plans are often drafted in ratios of 1:100. This scale is very close to the scale 1/8" = 1'-0" (1:96). Metric floor plans are drawn in a ratio of 1:50. This is very close to a scale of 1/4" = 1'-0" (1:48). Construction details may be drawn to metric scales of 1:20, 1:10, or 1:5. It should be noted that all dimensions in metric dimensions are in millimeters. Therefore, it is not necessary to use the symbol mm.
