Actually, we don’t have a specific technique in our university.We follow almost the same way in our projects.I will show you a project from last year.
1-We have particular topics in the beginning and we choose one of them.We try to decide what we are going to design.For what and where will it be located?We considered these things at the same time.
2-We start to analyse the location (traffics,climate,buildings,lights,nature etc..) and also we search for our topics.We need to get enough information in order to make client happy.
3-According to these informations,we create function diagrams and start to integrate them with our design.We do some sketches on the area.
4-We decide its shape and draw its plan,section,elevations,perspective.If we have specific details,we draw it in 1/5,1/10,1/50 scale.Unless we have, we have to draw every detail in our Project(it depends on which Project are you taking)
5-We choose the support system and material for building(concrete,steel..)We decide the place of columns and also for window,floor,wall..we have to choose our material and we show some examples about these materials.
6-We have model them in sketchup,lumion,3dmax..
