See calendar for list of 1stP’s.
Feature your energy results
Show research about your climate/location
Show sketches
etc.. (all up to you on this one).

Exploded view tips:
We have discovered what may be a best option for the exploded view for this particular project.  Note the ORDER OF ELEMENTS.

(please either add more trees -or- have no trees)

Information / model order for exploded view (top to bottom)

(1st Revit view portal on sheet):
– Architecture without roof
– Mech.
– Structural
– Foundation
(1st Revit view portal on sheet):
– Composite view of all elements AND site.

Be sure to choose an angle for your model view that is very close to a 30/60 plan oblique !   Many of the initial student drafts were not high enough above the model…
See posted notes from me and from Cade on the wood studio door.
