2.Understanding of what axonometric projections are, how to generatethem and how to apply them to the design process and presentation.
Ability to produce legible architectural drawings.
Tasks - Methodology
Following the demonstration in the lecture, use pencil and butter paper togenerate an external axonometric drawing of the Villa Savoye. You are to referto your orthographic drawings AND the documents for measurements andinformation throughout this exercise. After having confidently constructed yourdrawing in pencil, proceed to trace your final ink drawing on tracing paper. Youwill have two workshop sessions (read: one week) to produce the externalaxonometric.In the remainder two workshop sessions, you will generate a sectionalaxonometric drawing showing both interior and exterior of the building.
External and internal axonometrics of the Villa Savoye. Please submit theconstruction drawing (pencil on butter paper) and final drawing (ink on tracepaper).
Understanding and ability to generate axonometric drawings
Communicate understanding of architectural detail and spatial valuewith clarity and accuracy
Quality of hand-drawing skills (neatness of line, overall visual aestheticof the drawing, etc.)
Appropriate use of technique and scale
Marks shall be distributed according to the assessment criteria mentionedabove.
