Week 2: Building Analysis

The Model / Survey team presented their work to date on the site model. Now that the base is almost finished, the aim is to finish the buildings for the group presentation next Monday, 8th February.

The team then discussed the different types of sketches, models and drawings that architects use at different stages of the design process. Examples were given of the Thermal Baths in Vals, Switzerland by the architect, Peter Zumthor. We later watched the beginning of a video documentary about this building, which Sean D heroically managed to download from Youtube!

We look forward to seeing the findings of the Light & Space (see image below), Materials & Structures, Environmental, Interviewing, and Video & Photography teams next week, so watch this space!
