First Weekend of Studio Work

Now that the first full week of instruction is behind us and we’ve been assigned our first studio project I have experienced my first weekend dedicated to architectural design…AKA trying to figure out the assignment and learn the modeling software.
So far Google Sketchup has been quite easy to learn and manipulate. I’ve managed to write my ‘program’ and manipulate my components based on the parameters I’ve set. I’m quite happy so far with the results but I’m growing a little concerned about the actual construction of this project. That’s normal right? Basically once we’ve finalized our program and are happy with the result the next step is obviously to build it. Basswood is in my future.
Another part of this project is to present the final design in three hand drawn views. Of course, this is the part I fear the most and I’m trying to convince myself that this will be more of a learning experience than a grueling realization of how much I suck at drawing. Let’s hope my faith in the educative process is correct.
Below are a couple of 3D renderings of my project so far. Enjoy!
