If you would like to reprint your 48″x 48″ drawing, you have the opportunity to do so before the review. Everyone has received individual comments on their drawings. Overall, remember to LABEL!!!
1- Label the Center (i.e. Jackrabbit Green, Rotunda Green, etc.)
2- Label the Orienting Lines: where do they go to?
3- Label your section cuts
4- Include a North Arrow and the Scale of the Drawing
5- Label the Surrounding Buildings in the Site Plan (i.e. AME, Solberg, Administration, etc.).
6- Label the Program: if you have a specific meeting place for a tribe, be sure to label it as such…this may not apply to everyone.
The Final Review will take place Friday 12.04 from 2pm-5pm in our Archive Space.
You are modelling your module/system @ 1/16″=1′-0″ or 1/8″=1′-0″. Be sure to include a significant amount of ground in the model.
What is your narrative? Come ready with the supporting work you would like to include in your review as well as a way of speaking about the project.
24″x 24″ Digital Drawing:
Please upload a 24″x 24″ pdf version of your final drawing by the end of the day on Wednesday. You can upload the file to the dropbox folder we created at the beginning of the semester…
Dropbox > ARCH 451 Circle & Square Diagrams > Final Drawings_Small
Everyone will have a 4′-0″ x 8′-0″ surface to pin-up on.

For the final review, you will complete the 48″x48″ drawing you have been working on until now. Consider how the module works on the site and draw it. You must include a 1/64″=1′-0″ site plan or axon (whichever you have been drawing until now), one section, perspective, or elevation, and the territories you are looking at.
Many of you already have this information on your drawing.
This part will be due Wednesday 11.25 @5pm. You must be printed and/or plotted by this time.
For this upcoming Friday, print the 48″x48″ drawing that contains your research | site plan | territorial drawing. This should be printed on the same printer/plotter you plan on using for the final review.
THIS WILL BE GRADED. MAKE SURE YOU ARE PRINTED BY 2PM.
Continue to push your project based on feedback…
Kyle just informed me that Bunky Echo Hawk will be on campus TONIGHT. His work includes the painting below…check out the details.
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 05, 2015 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Location: Fishback Studio Theatre, Performing Arts Center
In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, join the AIECC as we welcome Bunky Echo-Hawk to SDSU! Bunky is a multi-talented artist, and his goal is to truly exemplify the current state of Native America through art. His live art performance brings a fresh, interactive, culturally and socially relevant art experience to his audience.
This event is free and open to the public!
One way to take a political position is to understand current American Indian events. Below are just two (2) online media sources to look at.
Indian Country Times: http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/
Lakota Country Times: http://www.lakotacountrytimes.com/
Since the beginning of the semester, the module models have remained surface explorations as a result of the chipboard used to make them. How can the module begin to work as a mass, a surface, or a frame model?
MATERIALS NEEDED: Wood, Chipboard, Cardboard, Bluefoam, Wire, Etc.
FOR FRIDAY 11.06
1- At least five (5) sets of module models. These can be modelled at 1/8″=1-0″, 1/16″=1′-0″ or 1/32″=1′-0″.
- At least one (1) set must explore mass
- At least one (1) set must explore frame
- At least one (1) set must hybridize two systems
- Two-plus (2+) sets are your choice
2- At least five (5) new site plan arrangements that incorporate each set into the site plan. You may use trace paper for this.
3- Continue to push your Territorial Drawing and your Site Plan.
MIDTERM REVIEW COMMENTS POSTED AGAIN IN ORDER TO AVOID AMNESIA…
Modular Systems are about the part to whole relationship. How “thick” is the relationship between the part to whole? Is there a void? Is there another material? Is there a gradient?
MIDTERM REVIEW COMMENTS
Midterm Review Comments are now posted via the following link: ARCH 451_MIDTERM REVIEW COMMENTS. Comments are included from everyone’s review and overall comments from the review are listed at the end of the document. Below are some of the overall comments
1- Think about this as a project not only for SDSU , but for everyone who wants to come to SDSU from other nations. This is more than a language center, a cultural center, etc.
2- Modular Systems:
- Are about the part to whole relationship
- How “thick” is the relationship between the part to whole. Is there a void? Is there another material? Is there a gradient?
3- Take a political position. It does not need to be explicit, but it needs to be there.
4- Look at TSCHUMI_Abstract Mediation and Strategy. You all read this in 3rd year. These strategies along with the COMAE principles are great ways of thinking about the site.

IN CLASS: You will begin to combine your Territorial Drawing, Site Plan, and supportive study into a 48″ x 48″ drawing. This will be the drawing size you will present at the final review. A square drawing allows for a center and is unbiased in any direction. In class you will be assigned a space on a pin-up board.
BY THE END OF CLASS: Look at the comments from the review. Write down three (3) questions you want to explore based on your midterm project and the feedback you received.
1- Buy a roll of trace paper.
2- Begin to combine your drawings into a 48″x48″ drawing. YOU WILL DESIGN THROUGH THIS COMBINATION. Bring thumbnail sketches of the drawing types you want to include. You MUST include the site plan at 1/64″. Print portions or draw portions of the drawing.
3- Read Page 3 & 4 from the “Oceti Sakowin Origins and Development”.
Based on today’s conversations and the drawings I saw, do not forget to include the following for Friday…
1- The Module Model is a PHYSICAL model, not a digital model.
2- Include Orienting lines in your Territorial Drawing and in your Site Plan. These should include your three (3) centers as well as the capitals of the Oceti Sakowin Nations.
3- On the Territorial Drawing, label the names of your centers.
4- Pin up your Modular Space & American Indian Space Reflections. There is a lot of good work in them.
5- Remember, the Midterm Review is a moment for pause. Think about the questions you want to explore for the remainder of the semester and state them.

For Wednesday 10.21 you will make a TERRITORIAL DRAWING based on the digital model you made. The Territorial Drawing above takes into account topography, buildings, fields, rivers, and lakes and combines them into a cohesive representation of the territory. The drawing only shows the information relevant to the narrative and the remaining territorial information is left as white.
1- Start with a 24″ x 36″ layout (Hand drawing, Illustrator, Photoshop, AutoCAD, etc,)
2- Using your Rhino/Revit Model (layers etc.) combine the fragments of the model into a two-dimensional drawing like the one you see above.
3- Pieces of the drawing should be output at scale, though each person’s will be different (know the scale of the fragment!)
4- You DO NOT need to print the full-scale sheet for Wednesday, but you do need to make letter-sized test prints. I will come to your desk and and look at the layout and the tests. This is an exercise in representation.
- How does one make a drawing of vast territories?
- What are the fragments, layers, nodes?
- Were are the centers?
Below are other examples of representation:
