Work as Teams
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.
In simple terms, state the community and/or
design issues your project will address. This should be a direct
match to the topic you were given for Part One. This prototype design
will focus on that topic even though it may conflict with the ideas of
other groups in the class.
What is an appropriate scale to address those
design and planning issues? For example, Defensibility may operate
at the block level whereas addressing Power and Poverty may demand you
work at the neighborhood scale.
What is the extent of your project?
Provide maps and diagrams from ArcView or the EGRETS database to show potential
locations for your area of study. This is a must, not an option.
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.
Create a web page including:

NOTE - we will be presenting from these web pages so YOU MUST BE FINISHED
Background research findings and all references and brief synopses.
This is the material you developed for Part One, moved onto the Web.
Maps indicating resources useful to address research findings. Again,
these should have been identified in Part One.
Design and planning illustrations of design prototypes.
Other illustrations indicating the atmosphere you intend to create
