Architecture / Interior Design Development Projects

The purpose of these projects is to:

  1. Apply the basics of CAD
  2. Effect a collaborative effort between the majors as it exists in industry
  3. Apply the practice of design to projects.

The deliverables for these assignments will involve the design and development of a commercial (or residential non-single family) building of the team’s choice in various stages. The structure can be single or multi-story. Examples can include but are not limited to:

  1. An office building
  2. A bank
  3. A three story apartment building
  4. A library

Starting with the development of the site plan, teams will utilize their respective talents to develop their project. The deliverables will be broken down as follows:

  • Floor Plan
  • Site plan
  • Foundation Plan
  • Framing Plan
  • Structural Details
  • Structural Section
  • Electrical and Lighting
  • Plumbing OR HVAC
  • Exterior Elevations
  • Interior Elevations

Given the nature of these drawings, each student will incorporate their talents based on their major in the development of this building. For example, the site plan will be drawn by the architect, but the floor plan for the site will be developed by the architect and space planned by the interior designer if the group has one. Another scenario, the architect will specify what floor system. The interior designer will examine the materials for the floor. Another scenario, the architect will consider the electrical plan while the interior designer designs appropriate lighting so that the electrical plan can be drawn.

These are all examples of the collaborative efforts between the majors. The actual drawing responsibilities will be governed by the group. Since these projects involve design, students will need to do research online and collaborate on the best possible solutions for their projects. My role will be providing lectures and illustrations of how these types of drawings are generated discussing the theory behind them.

It is the intent of this project to expose students to the types of activities found in the industry as well as develop mutual accountability in project design and development.
