Project: 2bAxonometric projectionSubmission date: 6 June 2013Introduction
Axonometric drawing is an excellent method of communicating and expressing an architectural idea – be itas a diagram at a fairly early stage of the design process (ie. conceptual expression) or as a presentationaid upon finalization of your design.Axonometric drawings are a visually instigating and exciting way of expressing an idea clearly with minimal words if executed well.
Objectives of Project
In the production of the work for the Orthographic Projections assessment, you would have, by now, a fairlyin-depth understanding of the architectural detail and spatial value of the Barcelona Pavilion.In the next exercise, not only will you learn how to execute an axonometric projection, but you will put yourknowledge of the aforementioned building into good use by generating an external axonometric projectionand a sectional axonometric of the house.These projections will be generated at a scale of 1:100 on A1-sized butter paper (for construction) andfinally inked on A1-sized trace.
Learning Outcomes of this Project
1.Ability to express spatial ideas and architectural detail in three-dimension, in the format of anaxonometric projection.2.Understanding of what axonometric projections are, how to generate them and how to apply themto the design process and presentation.3.Ability to produce legible architectural drawings.
