Project 2: Basic Orthographic Drawings using Daily Objects

Submission Date: 21st April 2015 (Week 10)
Introduction
“It taught me that there are three versions of things: the one I see in my mind, and the one that
carries onto the paper, and then what it ultimately becomes.”

Lauren DeStefano, Sever
Objectives of Project

Identify the fundamental principles, elements and techniques in sketching, drawing, design process and
presentation skills.
Demonstrate observation skills and be able to record, organize, interpret and describe a variety of
issues via visual communications effectively.

Learning Outcomes

Identify the type of drawing representation.

Tasks
1. Individually, student is required to choose an object within A5 size-base. (It should not be too small/nothing
bigger than A5 and must have certain level of complexity)
2. You are then required to sketch and conduct measurement of chosen objects. This is to be done as part of
the class exercise. In this process, you should take as much measurements and any related information on
the selected object. The information will be useful to generate the orthographic drawings.
3.Then by using book references/ classroom tutorial, independently you are to explore the applications of
Drawing Conventions and generate orthographic drawings that clearly express the 3 dimensional objects.
4. Once all drawings are completed you are to compose it in a booklet (accordion style) and all writings will be
manually done using Architectural Writing.

Submission Requirement
Using the measurements and information gathered on the selected object, you are to generate orthographic
drawings that clearly express the 3 dimensional objects. You need to apply what you have learned on Drawing
Conventions and this should be reflected in the final drawings.
List of drawings that you should produce for the final submission would include the following:
1- ONE Top view
2- THREE Elevations (Front/Back/Sides)-discuss with your tutor for suitability of the elevations
3- ONE Section
4- TWO Detail drawings
5- ONE Perspective view with your own rendering technique-this will be the cover of your submission
You will need to produce ALL drawings listed above; missing any one of the drawings will be considered as
incomplete submission.
All drawings will be composed and submitted in a booklet (accordion-style).The booklet will be in A5
portrait/landscape depending on how you orientate the drawings. The perspective view will be the cover of the
booklet. You will also need to include your progress sketch in the booklet.

LT6. There will be no class on the day of submission to give way for marking.
