Final Design

Visuals



Below are the drawings for the final design of the Dance School and Language Academy. As the theory behind the project was based around the idea of a universal understanding I wanted to communicate this in my drawings. Architects often forget that architecture is a language and that our terminology and drawings and therefore designs, may not be immediately understood by others. Through a series of experiments I discovered that 3D drawings serve as an immediate and legible method of communicating quality of space and design. I have shown my plans as a series of axonometric drawings that fit together to form a building. I too found this method of communication a good indicator as to the success of the scheme within its challenging context.
