Final Submission Day Corrected

Hi All,

It was brought to my attention today that the 22nd of June is in fact a Friday not a Thursday.

I've corrected the course outline and the brief page for EXP3 to show the right day. Friday the 22nd of June. You may have to refresh your browser.

So if you were planing on being finished in 3 weeks from today you'll have an extra day!

Week 3 task live!

Hi All,

The task for this week is now live on the course website, access it here:

http://www.russelllowe.com/arch1101_2018/experiment2/brief/brief_exp2.htm

You'll also see a resource link to a TED talk. It's a short video when Joshua Prince-Ramos describes the concepts behind three projects by the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA). He is a very good presenter and OMA have a very long and influential history so take a look.



When you're finished you might like to take a look at some of the other presentations on TED ... they introduce a range of topics from the fields of science and the arts in 20 minute lectures that will almost always leave you inspired; see a list of videos by topic here.   

Regards

UNSW Kensington Model

Hi All,

Please find a model of the UNSW Kensington Campus.

I've edited it so it just shows the lower areas of the campus around our sites for EXP2 and EXP3. This is so it will run faster on your machines in Lumion.

Download from here.


After I imported it into Lumion I noticed that some of the ground planes in the model were flickering ... this is because they aligned exactly with the grass plane in Lumion. So I lifted the model up a little bit (0.4m) which stopped them overlapping and the flickering stopped.

EX2 Task for Today and Resource live!

Hi All,

If you'd like to know what we are doing in studio this week take a look at the task for today here.

If you'd like to get ahead, and do yourself a BIG favor, take a look at the reading by Dutch architects Neutelings and Riedijk ... the link is next to the task for today and called "N+R; Laziness" it provides excellent advice for anyone studying architecture or related disciplines.
