This week:

We are developing the massing diagrams and massing models.
You need to finalize:
– Basic diagram for your train canopy + tower
– Form language for all buildings
– Ideas about circulation thru the site from parking, to parking, drop-off and access to/from trains to station.

If you like – feel free to build a 1″=200′ massing model with paper/chipboard/BASSwood (not balsa), 3d-print, etc.
I will leave an example of a model like this in the Studio.

Next week:

We will be developing:
building exteriors (walls, windows, porches)
building details (locations of fire stairs, elevators, mezzanine, escalators).
