Multi use mid-rise design by Missionaryrdr Multi use mid-rise design by Missionaryrdr
These are somewhat final presentation boards for my end of the year projects in a third year architecture studio (UIUC). This is a steel structure multi-use mid rise building located on a site directly next to the L track stop in Chicago. Due to this fact I incorporated the stop into the building while making sure the amenities included would drive passengers to stop and shop/relax. I will be redoing these for a contest in the next week so this presentation will change and more information will be added/taken off. If you have any comments, critiques, concerns I would appreciate them. The image was originally 4 20" X 20" boards and I scaled it down so that you could just scroll across it (I hope most of the detail doesnt get lost).

Great work .... I am a second year architecture student and I have to design mid-rise building this year.
thanks for sharing this design

veryyyyyyyyyyy nice i love the design
but if you just added in some part of the layout the materials of the building it's very important in architectural designs
and also the mass plan to show how you managed the environnement of the project i think it's a very very very very nice design in volumes materials shapes and forms cooool

Thanks alot, I have the final boards up for this if you look at my library, They show alot more info along with surrounding massing, massing of the building and materials through a 3d section cut that I did, check it out if you have some time. Thanks for the critique, I apreciate it

3rd year? i'm seriously ashamed...

anyway, i would tone down the saturation of the perspectives - i think they're upsetting the balance of the layout a little.

Very interesting work! The only dislikes of mine are the people composited into the interior scenes. Nor am I too keen on the type you've used (typeface is fine). There are some inconsistencies there with regards to the spacing and aligning with their relevant images, e.g. the spacing of East Elevation and North section aren't aligned the same to the same height or the same distance to the Scale. In fact all the type along the lower section I think should be aligned. The other example would be how South Perspective is left aligned to the image - I think you ought to pay the same attention for the Aerial Views type.

That first aerial view on the very left is a brilliant angle! And I like the way you've indicated the 'massing levels' - that's pretty funky. Cool blurb on the left there too :thumbsup:

I hope that helps :)

Good luck with the comp!! What sort of adjustments are you thinking? Does it have to be submitted electronically?

Thanks, As for your comments, the people composited there have to be there for scale-therefore I was wondering wether you just wouldnt want to any ppl there or are you just not a fan of the ones I used? The spacing of the two line drawings is actually correct the sections seems shorter but it was actually cut at that point, so its at the same scale. but yeah your def right about the alignemnt I did that about 15 min before I had to present so it was pretty quick.
As for the changes I need to make competition boards, so focus on the "Iconic images" basically fluff it up, and make sure it flows a bit better and tells the story without me explaining it. Ill post them when I get them done.

Thanks for your input I appreciate it.

Cool, look forward to the comp boards. When I was talking about the alignment I didn't mean any of the images - only the text. Images are fine! Yeah I dunno about the people... the girl on the sofa didn't look quite in proportion, but on reflection I think she's ok. The bloke in despair at the table is a bit funny though :P and I think perhaps it would look more appropriate to have a pet on the bed with someone at their laptop? That looks a little strange too....

Keep it up :)
