    "architect's" block?

    kellynsee Oct 31 '06 4

    is this the right term for it? since it's like writer's block, but i'm technically not yet an architect so can i call it this or is it designer's block? i don't knowww :)

    does anyone ever get this? and how do you solve this? especially when you have something to pass in a few days?

    realized that i have nothing to do as i discovered that my cellphone can't text smiley faces. now that's bored.

      my strategy has always been just to draw/make something. then you have something to which you can respond. especially if you hate it > you feel challenged to make it better.

      draw the site, again and again and again. draw the buildings surrounding the site. plans and sections of the site and surroundings. do a study model of the site with surroundings. finally, grab a bunch of cardboard and start cutting and pasting away. work in 3d [not drawings]. it'll be faster. then go back to your plans and sections and incorporate your 3d study.

      study your limitations. those always help: do you have roads, buildings, trees, traffic flows, whatever... that affect your project in any way? can you start by responding / addressing your limitations and turn them into a strategy?

      i agree with both comments. just keep spitting out work. i'll pre-cut 15 to 20 pieces of trace paper, line up all my pens, erasers, ruler etc., turn my mind off and start drawing. even if it's a model in the final stages. i find sketching a lot, and quickly, tends to grease up the thought process. corrugated cardboard is good to if you really want that 3d look. it's cheap, and dries quickly

      hey guys thank you for your comments, i have been doing the ddodling to death part but for some reason, everything comes ou wrong. i've never done the work in 3d thing but i'll give it a shot today. i have to stop just doodling because everything is due on the 6th. oh no!
