This morning I arrived with my drawings of my model, and we talked as a group about why elevations and plans are so important when designing. This is something I am interested in, as it is key when being an architect to understand a site fully before trying to fill the space. We then were allowed to continue our projects on our own, and I tired to think about applying my model to my site, which at first I found really hard, but then I cured one edge of the model, drew it, and realised it could be the face of the pub I am designing for. The shapes that come off this curve could be solutions to the tables being literally out on the street, so giving them more privacy, and the tall section could have another function like a chimney. This surprised me as I had been a bit fearful of trying to move my work from analytical to creative, but I think the course has helped me to join these things together faster.
