Discussion 11/03/08 Formative Ideas and Class Excercise

In class this night we discussed the different graphic elements we need for a building. We need the parti, structure, natural light, massing, plan to section/ elevation, unit to whole, repetitive to unique, symmetry and balance, geometry, additive and subtractive and hierarchy. The most interesting part for me was to see how each architect interprets these terms. The architects have each their own symbol for the terms but the meaning of the term does not change.
