Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Louis Khan in Downloadable Form.

I was looking on the internet to see if I could find any 3-D models or drawings of the assignment’s architecture on the internet. I found ten of the buildings for the summer assignment on a website called GreatBuildings.com in photograph, drawing, and model form. It was my first hit on google when I searched “maisons jaoul model”.

Despite how quick the search is, books will most likely be more fruitful because of the sketched out diagrams, thoughts of the architect, and in depth analysis of space or concept.

    Wow, great start on locating and sharing information and resources. I picked famous projects to research for this reason, so it would be easy to find at least some images and drawings. The problem, you’ll soon see, is that the available 3D models are crude, the plans often diagrammatic and only one level, and the sections not very spatial, none of them articulating structural ideas very clearly. Existing “precedent studies” tend to be overly diagrammatic, not very “material,” focused more on geometry than structure. Be sure not to stop when you find one plan: keep searching for larger scale drawings, details, structural drawings, photos of the project under construction, etc., along with writings about the project, as you mention. You should be able to access many articles through full-text databases such as JSTOR (enter through CMU library home page, and use the WebVPN to access). If at all possible, see if you can visit a good architecture school library… Good luck, and email me with questions. – Kai

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but
    instead of that, this is wonderful blog. An excellent read.
    I will certainly be back.

    Two things: Take pleasure in getting hungry’ and basically cut out 90% of one’s sugar intake.
    It’s as well basic to make anyone any funds, but you know inside your intestine that it really is the solution. Good luck/discipline/eating routines

    Actually basic water also aids, as it fills
    your abdomen a bit and you feel less hungry, but not to get a lengthy
    time however. Or occasionally you happen to be dehydrated however ,
    you mistakenly think that you happen to be hungry, in that case drinking also
    assists. And that i guess it really is better to drink coconut drinking water than just a
    plain one particular, it’s tastier and includes numerous vitamins and minerals.
