    Final Review:Public Gallery & Criticism for Bozeman, Montana Municipal Airport

    ichweiB Nov 15 '06 7

    It has been over a month since I posted last. I am impressed with guys like +q who manage to post with the demands of the GSD. I poured myself into this project. I have been working on presentation drawings and the final model for a while.
    Today was our Final Review of sorts;however, it was more in the form of a public gallery. We pinned up in the archieve room and the space was open to other students and faculty. Our prof invited specific professors to come and walk around to talk to us specifically about our work. So, we made sure to stay close to offer a defense when asked.
    All together I was satisfied. Conceptually, I consdiered making the airport more than a function of transport but also a public amenity. I organized it bilaterally with public space and airport functional space co exisiting on the main concourse level.

    Here are some pictures of my work and some other pictures of models and drawings for my fellow studio mates. imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

    I loaded them a little out of order. Anyhow, I'd appreciate any comments. Here are some other pics from the studio:

      I agree. The work looks good and clean. What program do you use for your renderings? They look very crisp as well.

      I used sketchup, VW12, Illustrator, and Photoshop for all the drawings.
      I did a lot of jpeg overlays to trace shadow lines.
      I'm hoping to get into some more intense 3D programs as soon as I can; however, I am more interested in describing architecture graphically with the use of montages in an abstract since-similar to that of LTL.

      Nice Job. I am upper level undergrad at UH and have been around long enough to see the Grad program improve. I walked through the gallery yesterday and had a chance to see your project, I have also seen your progression on this post and I spoke woith Mara a little about hers and your studio. ALL hail Webb...

      The abstract nature of your initial parti allows for a lot of beautifully abstracted spatial components, I enjoyed the connections of the passenger routing social areas. This being a small airport it is obvious that the spaces need to have direct correlating amneties for long overhauls in the airport. Ecxelent ciculation diagrams.

      My only critique is that none of the projects I observed took the opprotunity to look at at least one critical constructional detail. Yours started to in the 1/4" scale section model. I think this would have been a great study in a 1 1/2"=1'-0" drawing; the nature of the connections, the materials, the systems, etc... I know your studio was not asked to do this, but it would have been very nice....

      Overall great job; clear, concise, good graphical representation, excelent craftsmanship. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more of your work.

      I think your criticism is completely accurate and I appreciate it.
      We ought to discuss ideas sometimes.
      Thanks for the encouragement. I am still coming to understand architecture as I have only been at this for a year and a half now. I did a little in undergrad, but it was mainly construction based. However, I have always been passionate about being an architect and the impact the profession can have soically.
