Upcoming Presentation Outline

Some clarification on the upcoming team presentations:

  • Zoning Presentation¬†(on 22 x 34 Titleblocks in Autocad) – Teams are permitted to share information but not drawings. ¬†Each student must draw their own zoning sheets, graphics and backup zoning text. ¬†Each of you will upload your zoning to blackboard.
    • Graphic Sheets
        • Block and Lot, Use Group, etc. C6-2 etc.
        • Lot Area and FAR Calculation for allowable Square foot
        • Area calculation for the proposed building. ¬†Do you have enough allowable sq foot to build it? ¬†Do you have extra?Site information and FAR Calculations
          • Lot Area
          • FAR
          • Lot Area x FAR = Maximum Allowable
          • subtract Existing Buildings Sq ft to Remain (if any). If none say 0 – but do not leave this out!
          • Avaiable Builable is the result
      • Environs Map (Neighborhood) – suggest that this sheet matche the limits of your inventory/analysis sheets
      • Site Plan showing zoning envelope from above, street names and narrow or wide status, w/dimensions
      • Zoning Map 12D
      • 3D Isometrics of Zoning Envelope (2 views minimum) w/ dimensions
      • 2D¬†sections of zoning envelope (2 views minimum) w/ dimensions
      • Zoning and New Building Overlay – show at least 1 isometric view that shows if the proposed building fits inside your zoning envelope
    • Zoning Text Sheets – all conclusions must be backed up by zoning text
    • Zoning Definitions Sheet – optional sheet for extra credit includes relevant Zoning Definitions for example #wide street# – etc.

PowerPoint Presentation (Group)

  • Zoning – show the following here as well
    • Summary of site information – Zoning group/use/site area/FAR
    • FAR Calculations as well as calculations of the sq foot of the proposed building to determine if it is within the allowable
    • Zoning Envelope, Site Plan, Sections and Isometrics w/ Dimensions
  • ¬†Structural
    • Grid Organization – Show structural solution overlaid on floor plan. You must include spans sizes.
    • Floor to Floor – show floor to floors in section
  • Mechanical Solution – On a floor plan and a section show where the mechanical room will be, show the location of shafts and the distribution of mechanical systems in section.
  • Occupancy – Show occupancy calculations for each room and floor. ¬†Use these to determine the required number of stairs and the required width in inches of the doors and stairs
  • Egress – Show egress in plan and section. ¬†Show stair locations, exists, corridors & direction of door swings (using an arrow line) Include proper size for a typical stair in both plan and section.
  • Inventory and Analysis (part of PowerPoint presentation)
    Include this item just before your research list.  Use a uniform base map.  These are graphic not drafted presentations.  You can combine categories below if you can make them readable.  Otherwise each one should be a separate sheet.

  • Case Study / Research List – Develop a list of case studies for your team. ¬†For each item on the list show a sample image for example – each team must complete a case study of their building type. ¬†Select the building you will study now and show us a photo. ¬†For each of the other items on the case study /research list show a photo or a graphic of what you intend to research. ¬†For this future work please show how the team will divide up the work.

3D Massing Assignment

At the suggestion of one of the groups I am modifying this assignment. Please make an attempt to model your design project in AutoCAD. Keep it simple, it’s just a massing model.

Look to follow the steps of the FLATSHOT handout but always using the value 1,1,1 instead of 1,2,3. So all the numbers are 1 and this will give us a 30/60 Isometric model.

Please keep a copy of your drawing before you use the Boolean commands so we can practice together.

Group Research – Listing due for next class

A reminder that for the next class each team is to have a listing of research assignments by topic – for example, structure or sunshade devices, etc.

Case studies may be of an entire building Рfor example every team doing a health club must do a case study on a health club and each team doing a museum must do a case study on a museum.  This group work is to be done by the entire team.  Also each member of the team must visit a museum or health club.  If  you are not a member of a health club call one up and arrange a visit for potential new members.

Other case studies or precedent studies may be focused on a single issue or item.  For example, long span structural solutions, or ceiling materials and lighting, or mechanical solutions, or aesthetic studies showing the work of architects that likely inspired the designer.

For today you must provide a list.
