Yesterday, as a part of their Detailed Design Study module, 2nd Year BA Architecture students had an opportunity to meet up with practicing architects and UOW staff to discuss their projects and detail design as required per their current brief.
The study is made up of the following 4 sections:
- To draw/ sketch/ explore a Structural strategy for the building
- To draw/ sketch/ explore an Environmental strategy for the building
- Detail Explorations (detailed study of 3 Technical ‘Moments’ from the building envelope)
- Physical Model (scale no larger than 1:1, no smaller than 1:20)
As a final outcome of the project, the students are invited to present a richly illustrated A3 Landscape Colour PDF Document with appropriate use of diagrams, 2D drawings, 3D drawings, sketches, photographs of the model, research, precedents and references.
The practitioners who came to work with the students during yesterday’s Detail Design Clinic were: Scott Batty Architect (UOW), Jeremy Young (Featherstone Young Architects), Wayne Head (Curl la Tourelle Head Architects), Theclalin Cheung (Curl la Tourelle Head Architects), Jim Potter (Waind Gohil + Potter), Elantha Evans Architect (UOW), Andrew Whiting (HUT), Sangkil Park (MAKE)
