Sep '06 - Aug '08
We were required to complete a design proposal for our planned development in downtown Detroit. This was a very informal activity followed by a pin up. No one was exactly sure what to include in this proposal, because no one had ever done one before. We weren't given a lot of details from the instructor, just to show what it is we plan to do with our site, and to do so graphically. I think he might have a slight addiction to the word "cool," but I'm not so certain he knows what cool is. I included in my proposal a mapping I had done, showing some important activity nodes in the area, and the pedestrian linkages between those nodes, and how these linkages relate to our site. I also did a graphic showing the quantity of spaces I plan to include in the site, as well as some inspiration of what I think this building should be. I also included a grapic from the cool city project, which I altered slightly to make it fit into my presentation. I have no idea what this graphic accomplishes, but I thought it was way to sweet to leave out! This was a very primative presentation and was meant to give us direction and goals as we develop our projects throughout the semester.
