Current Assignments

A couple it notes just to clarify things for everyone.

  • First the latest handout provided in class that covers using AutoCad to develop a masonry wall is now posted.  See the handouts section of the site.
  • The case study assignment will be due for final submission on Tuesday November 8th.  For this Thursday the 3rd you should come to class with a mockup of what you plan on changing based on this past Tuesday’s in class pinup.
  • Due this Thursday the 3rd is the Masonry elevation coursing assignment.  This is to be completed in AutoCad before class begins.  You need to have already completed layout of bricks on two facades – one the North or South and the other needs to be either the East or West.  You do not need to layout all the bricks but enough to show that you have figured out the coursing. From the corner of the building this would likely be two column bays in.
  • We will be working on the Masonry wall section in AutoCad this Thursday.

Assignment Reminder

At present you should be working on two assignments – both case studies – one as a team and one as your own.  We are off for over a week due to the holidays and will meet our next class on Thursday October 6th.

Due on October 6th – Team presentations of case gym studies.  You will be presenting as a team in a single and uniform PowerPoint presentation but each of you will have your own case study.

Due on October 6th – Individual research on your case study on movement.  Go back to the site if you need to, take additional photographs and begin to identify what you will be looking to explain or understand and what drawings or images will be necessary to explain clearly to the rest of the class.  Your final case study should include hand drawings (isometric, section, plan details), photographs and any necessary written description.

Please refer to the assignment sheet on the handouts page.
