Schematic Design Review by thomas kearns

On Monday September 22nd, we will be having a schematic design review.  Due for review on this day will be the following materials.

physical model at either 1/8″ or 1/4″ scale, preferably larger.  Note this is not a parti model or a massing model but a schematic model that should express the core conditions of concept – space/volume, shape, materiality, transparency etc. Goal is not realism but clear understanding/expression of design ideas and general form at a true scale

1/8″ = 1′-0″ site plan showing the roofplan of the house and architecturally or environmentally significant landscaping ideas and including at least a portion of the front street, rear adjacent lot or alley and at least the next adjacent homes (street if you or on the corner) in their entirety.  If your proposals are responding to the position of the sun it would be good to add a degree of relevant diagramatic information without obscuring the inforamtion of the drawing itself.

1/4″ = 1′-0″ floor plans for each floor showing at least the most adjacent site conditions, such as access points, or immediately adjacent site fixtures, i.e. planters, etc  Walls can be a solid or hatched poche and do not need to speak to assembly methods.  Sufficient interior objects should be included to understand space planning, i.e. furniture + fixtures.

1/4″=1’0″ sections taken at key formal locations, sections must include relevant interior + exterior elevational information and should match the plans in their scope (see above).  At minimum one longitudinal and one transverse section should be developed, many proposals will need more than one.

1/4″=1’0″ exterior elevations, quantity should be tied to an undestanding of the materiality of the building, in otherwords one may be sufficient but more may be required.

please have all materials printed and hung by 2:15 on Monday, location to follow.
