ASSIGNMENT 2a:

The investigation you have already accomplished in class will be a model or starting point for the development of one or more prototype design and planning solutions.  The goal is to illustrate the application of what may at times appear to be rather abstract ideas.

To help you develop prototypes, answer the following questions:
 

Develop illustrative schematic designs reflecting the community design issues you studied.  Design sketches should include plans, sections, elevations and perspectives, as appropriate.  Use 8.5 x 11 inch sheets, scanned into computer files and colorized using paint program software. We expect the equivalent of about twelve sheets of illustrations per group.

Check out this page to see an example of the kind of graphics we are talking about.  You can use the same method for plan rendering - it is fast, web-friendly, and communicates very well.  /la/LA437-F95/final/marcy/design.html  Pay special attention to the way Marcy provides links to the specific issues she was addressing in her prototype designs.

ASSIGNMENT 2b:

Create a web page including:
