BAR 313: Architectural Design 01 (supplementary project)
TECHNICAL COMMUNICATION IN ARCHITECTURE
INTRODUCTION
As an Architect, you are responsible NOT only for developing creative, innovative, ingenious designs, but also be responsible for leading the project design team implementing the proposed designs.
Traditionally, the entire process includes concept formulation, designing, tendering and supervision of construction works. In all these stages an excellent command of Technical language, with regard to buildings is imperative to communicate your designs with various consultants and personnel in the industry.
The Task of preparing various drawing types is ALL vested on the Architect. Schematic drawings and artistic impressions intended for client’s comprehension of the design. Production drawings comprising of Key| principal drawings i.e. plans, sections, elevations and axonometric drawings for the consultants [Quantity surveyor, Structural| Civil engineers, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, Landscape Architects, Interior designers etc.] and the Contractor.
This exercise seeks to introduce technical drawings| communication and equip students with skills necessary for their professional life.
The Task
You are required to physically measure and generate drawings [relevant for the construction] of an existing building complete with all its ancillary spaces. All sites have been drawn within precincts of ADD and Main Campus for ease of Access [i.e. physically and permission to survey]
