ARCHITECTURE DIAGRAMS SHOW WHAT MAKING ARCHITECTURE IS.

This is our first installment in Architecture Diagram Mondays.

What is making Architecture?

It's asking a lot of questions, listening and then responding in sketch form. This is one of the unique talents of Architects.

So why not use this skill as an entreé to the profession and what a good Architect does?

So let's look at one older project featuring Graeme Ogg's design for transforming the ruins of a farm house into an apartment complex. Please have a look at the story it tells...

From ruins to a Japanese courtyard complex where buildings slide by each other and the roof is revealed in layers. Why? Because this detail reinforces the sliding of masses and breaks it down into smaller pieces. One enters the courtyard from an angle and one can recall that Wright swore by this technique as it brought drama to the experience of space.
