Good graphics! Question that applies to all the new entries.What advantages/disadvantages do you see from the circulation diagram and space organization of the projects? Can some of these apply/reflect to your future project??
Thank you. Well, with this building, in particular, the circulation occured throughout every room. In other words, you were able to access another room within the room you were in rather than going out into the hallway/corridor to enter another room. All of the rooms seemed to be connected and I remember also seeing that in the Life Science Building.
When it came to space organization, the labs play the major role, therefore taking up the majority of space on each floor, and then the green space seemed to also play a major role but on the exterior of the building. The placement of the stairs came in third (in terms of significance) being on opposite sides of the building and then the rest of the space was utilized for office/faculty, resources and independent study.So moving forward, the labs will be the most significant spaces in my building but not the largest spaces, since I plan to add an atrium/lounge space, auditorium/seminar space, cafeteria/cafe and a viewing area/mini aquarium where the marine reserve fish will be.
Hi April, Comment to all new entries:I think it would be good to have some hierarchy within the circulation lines, i.e. distinguish in different colour or thickness (or both) the Approach, Public Route within building, Main Private Routes within building (labs),Secondary Private Route (supplies). If you are not sure, you can super-impose your circulation diagram with the space organisation diagram and then you will see more clear where the routes change.In complex buildings these flow diagrams can also inform on the number of people using that route (i.e. thicker lines for more people) so you can get an idea of what size of spaces (and accesses) are required, but that would be perhaps one step too far for you at this stage.After this you should get a better understanding on how physical spaces are related to its use and circulation.Good job, though. Keep it going!
Thank you, and I will defnitely keep that in mind.
