Week 8- Sections and Floor Plans

This week we looked into the environment surrounding our bathhouse and how the atmosphere and environmental conditions can be captured in our section drawings.

This digitally made section is very clean and holds an interesting colour palette which creates a misty/moody atmosphere. The slight transparency of other objects and shapes subtly show the layers of buildings and mountain which may be in the background. Even with the trees, some are darker and some lighter which shows depth in the environment.

This looks to be quite a simple and effective section created digitally. It has many figures which is good for size comparison. The trees, sky and birds add to create some sense of what the environment is like.

I love the style of this section. The colours are very earthy and organic, however it does not show much life with the surrounding area.

This is a beautifully displayed panel with a plan, section and elevation which describes the plant species surrounding the structure. It also shows the atmosphere and the environment around it. The positioning of the drawings is well thought out and the colours make the drawings more effective in the sense it’s trying to convey.
