*Assignment 04: Analysis for 22@ Project One

Analysis (group work)

Using the 22@ underlay plans here and here and PDF’s from ‘Student Presentations’ 2011 folder (see Dropbox invitation), you should do the following analysis drawings, defining your neighborhood and open spaces.  I will walk around to meet with all of you.  We should plan to try to have this work completed by 1pm today.

Next week we will move on to synthesis of design work, thusly Friday’s presentation should firmly look to establish the focus of investigation through a concise definition.  You will  present / post on Thursday your findings on your group research assignment of project types.

The following line drawings should done in Illustrator as delicate line drawings, following the Miralles Pinos method of drawing (page 23 and 42 in the red Field Book) the perceived urban wall and circulation curb (similar to our in situ drawings) (other method here):

–       District plan, locating neighborhood and major external forces

(outline district and or blocks .25 line weight, major axis, neighborhood blocks .5 line weight)

–       Neighborhood plan, locating urban rooms and major external forces

(.25 affected blocks, black for open space, affected sidewalks, affected street area.  you may try this with lines instead of fills.  this will describe the perceived neighborhood room, pedestrian perspective)

–       Urban Room, chose a focus area, based on 22@ plan and real site research

(.25 blocks, .5 building walls on urban room, .35 building walls not on urban room)
