Next Class on 6/27_Basic Interior Design

from:Sakaoka , Akino

to:1-3.INTRO DESIGN I (Wed)-Summer

Hi Class,

Attached is what was explained in this Wednesday's class: the requirements for presentation boards. You should be drawing a furniture layout and elevation(s) simultaneously at this point.

To the next class, please bring your furniture layout and elevations on tracing papers along with your floor plan. If you are drawing perspective drawings or other types of 3D drawings instead of elevations, please bring them. So I will review them in class.

The next class will be the last class before the 7/4 break, so please attend otherwise, you may fall behind.
Please feel free to send me any questions that you may have. See you next Wednesday.

Class tomorrow 6/13

from:Sakaoka , Akino

to:1-3.INTRO DESIGN I (Wed)-Summer

Hi Class,

As I announced last week, we will be traveling to interior design show rooms tomorrow about at 11am. We won't be drawing in class, so you don't have to bring your drawing tools, except for the architectural scale. However, please don't forget to bring your floor plan (preferably copy of it) with your furniture plan on a tracing paper with dimensions indicated.  You will create a list of what you need to find in the showrooms in class before traveling there.

Please arrive at 10am so that you won't miss any part of the lecture tomorrow morning. See you tomorrow.

Homework

from:Sakaoka , Akino

to:1-3.INTRO DESIGN I (Wed)-Summer

Hi Class,

I hope you will enjoy your one-week break next week.

Here is the recap of the homework:

1. Complete your floor plan (without furniture) using the four (heavy, medium, light, and very light) line weights that you have set.

2. Complete your collage presented either electronically or on a mat board. When choosing images, keep in mind the six design elements that we went over in the last class. If you created a collage in a computer, printing that collage in color and paste it on a mat board is an acceptable option for your presentation. Otherwise, please save your images in your flash drive and bring them to the next class for the presentation.

3. Prepare for the presentation. Each person will have 7 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for questions from class mates. On a sheet of a paper, list adjectives to describe the atmosphere of your space. Also, think about the primary colors that you want to use for your design.

During your presentation, you will explain the following things:

The name of the room you chose.
What are the current problems.
What are your solutions.
Adjectives to describe the atmosphere.
The primary colors you are planing to use.

After completing #1 and 2 above, if you have the time, please start your furniture layout or the new layout of the room on a tracing paper.

Good luck with your homework and will see you after the break.

Class tomorrow morning

from:Sakaoka , Akino

to:1-3.INTRO DESIGN I (Wed)-Summer

Hi Class,

I hope you are having a good week.

For the tomorrow morning class, we will meet in the computer room. If you are late, please look for us in one of the computer rooms. There, we will look at some images to help you gather the concept for your design.

As mentioned in the last class, if you have a mechanical pencil and sharpener, please bring them with you. For those who are planning to study Interior Design or Display Design, it won't be a bad idea for you to purchase them now. So you will get used to using them.

See you tomorrw.

Next Class on Wednesday, 5/16

from:Sakaoka , Akino

to:1-3.INTRO DESIGN I (Wed)

Class,

I asked Kang joo to send you guys an example of a sketch with dimensions. I hope you receive it by the end of the day.

Please measure one of the rooms in your apartment and bring the sketch with you to the next class as we will start drafting. When you sketch, draw the plan of your room big enough so that you can put all the dimensions clearly. Also, do not forget to bring your architectural scale, T square, triangle, paper, drafting tape, tracing paper, pencils, and eraser with you. Please bring pencil sharpener as pencils are needed to be sharpen constantly.

I will see you next Wednesday.
