I did these five sketches in class. The sketches were not really nice at first, after doing some rendering, the outcome somehow satisfied me. I tried to use hatching for every sketches in order to train myself and I believe that I can improve myself more in the future.

I learnt to draw the perspective drawings in an achitecture way like what Miss D wanted us to do. Suprisingly, I found it a lot easier to sketch the drawings out. However, it took me more than 5 hours for each drawings. I think it is worth to spend my time on these sketches as at the same time, I could learn the technique of sketching. I hope that one day my drawings will improve.

3 Concepts with 3 Different Buildings
Name: Wind Shaped Pavilion
Concept: Head Turner
Surreal Designed by California based designer and artist Michael Jantzen
The complete structure made out of light weighted fabric has six segments, which allows each of the six segments to rotate slowly around the central open support frame as the wind flows and hence the shape of the pavilion changes.
The design allows the pavilion to change shape when the wind blows and also generate electrictiy to illuminate the building during night.
Name: A Towering Community of Sustainable Residence
Designed by: Adil Azhiyev and Ivan Kurryavsev (Light + Spcae)
2 interwoven design principles were used in this building
1: supporting a core- the central core that contains the elevator and stairs.
2: communication module- the trunk of the tree, which is where the blocks are mounted a branch with leaves.
Basis of the apartment: Cubic shaped living modules with 3m sides.
Made from recycle materials: wood, plastic, glass, aluminium
Name: Zayed National Museum
Concept: Wing shaped
Designed by: Darren Quick
Air vents at the top of the wing-shaped take advantage of the negative pressure on the lee side of the wing profile to draw the hot air out and keep the structures ventilated.
