Enormous thanks, for the –radiant– House of the Rising Sun, hand built model and drawings, by Mark O’Bryan, Architect, Associate Dean, University of Kentucky College of Design:
- point cloud + hand drawings = directive environment (for design and construction)
This sketch is just a start. Modeling will commence, in a focused and directive way, and communication for construction will follow, in (and from) the same directive environment.
At the most basic level, design and construction teams need the ability to say to each other, “look HERE”, and explain specific things, there, about work to be done. Models, generally, whether they are totally complete, or partially complete, do not do this. Drawings do (that is their function).
The traditional function of drawing is to say “look HERE” and explain things about work to be done. That function is now to be modernized, by transforming formerly passive modeled environments (or hybrid modeled and captured environments) into directive environments that purposefully communicate and describe work to be done in a construction or facility operations scenario.
This “House of the Rising Sun” is a point cloud from a hand built model, plus a hand-made drawing (one of a set), by Mark O’Bryan, Architect, Associate Dean at the University of Kentucky College of Design.
Some next steps:
1. (1) Add some elements of vector geometry modeling (note that the combinant environment will assist, and will result in a model / point cloud / drawing hybrid)
2. (2) Add more drawings at other locations
