MAKING THE PLAN


Carefully construct a PLAN AND  ELEVATION / SECTION of a space at proper proportion, aligning the two studiesto allow for ease of assembly. Use construction lines to insure the proper alignments, scale, spacing and proportions. How can you construct a two-dimensionalrepresentation of agiven three-dimensional space?


INCLUDE:

  • construction lines    
  • foreground (dark line weight)    
  • middle ground (medium line weight)    
  • background (light line weight)

MAY INCLUDE:

  • tonal color    
  • gradient

FOCUS:

  • accurate proportion    
  • scale    
  • alignments    
  • shape    
  • precision

AVOID:

  • photo-realism
  • drawing the full plan of a space (concentrate on only the area required to reflect the section/elevation investigate)

This series intends to investigate how relationships between plan, section and elevation reveals logic behind the construction of that space, and how these relationships can be used to influence spatialreading and navigation.

Complete no less than two drawings per location, spending no less than thirty minutes per drawing.
