This week we will work towards the cross-over review next Friday 13th November.

Friday 6th Nov, 9.30am
We will hold group reviews throughout the day, starting at 9.30. For this, you will need drafts of some of the drawings that you are preparing for next week's cross-over review, ie:

1:500 Site Plan & Section
1:500/1:200 Model
1:200 building plans and sections
1:50 section
Sketches & Images: Interior and exterior views, sketches, perspectives, axonometrics.

If you are looking for inspiration for drawings, have a look at Richviewer, James Rossa's blog for Representation at Richview -  a lot of the material from his lecture is on this. There are also links to tutorials etc for computer programs and drawing systems.

Also, have a look at the drawings  Bratke made that Michael Pike spoke about in his lecture. 

Meantime, here are some references that cropped up at Monday's desk tutorials.

Peter and Mary Doyle - Birr Community School, Offaly. 1980.
Use of an economic method of construction  - repeated elements, interspersed with courtyards, bringing light deep into the building.
