Dear all,

Please be informed that I will be briefing you on the requirements for the Internal Review tomorrow in class. For Group A, this briefing will take place at 11am, Group B at 2pm. Attendance is compulsory and critical.

As we are just mere days away from the submission, this will mean that you need to finalise your design schemes with your tutors by tomorrow. In order to aid the finalisation of your design and getting the advice you need to progress towards completion, you will need to show sufficient visual material to your tutors. So please have with you: your study models, site models, orthographic drawings, sketches and any additional drawings such as perspectives and axo. Everyone should have started on their models and orthographic drawings by now.

Please take note of this and inform your fellow peers.

Thank you and I will see you all tomorrow.


In developing your designs, think about these two things:
1) What is the spatial quality you're creating? What is the poetics of space in your scheme?
 - poetics of space quite simply refers to the atmosphere you're creating. Think about the difference of spatial quality and experience of a church and a storeroom. Why are the two spaces so different in experience? What are the architectural elements (ie. ceiling height, choice of materials and textures, window openings size and type) that have been used/manipulate/modified in order to create that resulting spatial quality?

2) How is your design grafted?
- does your design meet the requirement of being grafted? What is the definition of grafted? How is your design grafted to your site? Is it grafted to the wall or ceiling? Is it grafted to the ground or onto a pillar?

What is being grafted here and how?
