A ‘Ted Talk’ in Drawing

Your client desires a space: not too large, not too small.

Determine its size to accommodate:

     Reading
     Writing
     Sleeping
     Eating
     Entertaining four visitors
     Light: determine the direction of natural light

Draw by hand on tracing paper five generative iterations of your design – keep them all.

Draw using a program that is suitable five iterations of an alternative design – keep them all.

Scan your hand drawings and print in reduced scale on a sheet of A4 paper.

Print your computer iterations at reduced scale on a sheet of A4 sheet of paper.

Select from each your best try and outline in red.

Hint: don’t over think – draw as if you are building the space from ground up.
