Whereas previous to this final project, the course explored a range of "design departures", including those that begin with material-driven, site-driven site-driven, and form-driven agendas, in this final design project for the semester, setting a design agenda is left to the individual student to define. While students must address the position taken in their manifesto project, and adhere to the requirements below, they are otherwise free to engage the project through any of the approaches discussed this semester.
This set of requirements include written and graphic representations of the proposed building program, and serve to articulate the design approach adopted by the project.
Include drawings that depict the overall formal gestures of the scheme, and how it fits into the conditions found on site. Expect that a discussion of how the project shapes and responds to site conditions will be carried through these drawings.
Deliverables that include the standard set of building description drawings that depict the spatial character and layout of the proposed design. Expect that a discussion of the distribution of building program and the intended phenomenological experience of occupying the proposal will be guided by these drawings.
Requirements include a full building plan, a minimum of two sections (in perpendicular directions), and a larger scale partial building plan and related section depicting the constructive and material logic of the proposal.
