Posting some photos of our one-day Sketch Problem—it’s basically a 1-credit required class where we’re given a design problem at 9am, and given about 12 hours to design a solution via model and drawings. They kept calling it a charette, but there wasn’t much of a collaborative effort, or sharing of ideas. It was however pretty intense, and really made us work our butts off and overall a pretty awesome experience....other than the fact that it ate up my saturday.
We were basically tasked with designing an artist’s studio, given the dimensions, and asked to implement direct and indirect sunlight. Representatives from Velux, a skylight company, came and introduced us to a number of their products, which also included solar water heaters (those are the black panels on my model).
Below are photos of my work on display along with a few other’s whose work was chosen out of the seminar.
