project description -
in an effort to utilitze and improve three-dimensional modeling software and other computer applications in architecture this course, architecture 334 offered by iowa state university, will provide instruction in remodeling, rendering, and presenting of one selected constructed building through various software. this website will serve as a place to view my progression and as a place to share my work with others.
current progression -
10 / 4 - drafting and importing acad falling water site files into revit software
10 / 25 - integration into bim software, intial building form and detailing
11 / 15 - renderings, floor plans, elevations due of falling water
12 / 14 - final presentation due
frank llyod wright has always been an architectural inspiration for me, and this building was on of the first that turned my dreams and eyes toward architcture as a profession.
as an inspiring architect, i wanted to use this opportunity to challenge myself and to continue my development in bim software through one of the most complex buildings i have come to know.
this semester long project has been rewarding in many ways and i have felt that i have grown in my understanding and comprehension of bim software and in particular the reivt modeling.
the most challenging aspect of this design has been to recreate the interior portion of falling water, for frank llyod wright created almost every square inch of this building from stratch;
the passion behind this design is undeniable.
the instruction i have received has pushed my revit modeling skills to a deeper and holistic level, and i feel that the final result is a testament to this instruction.
as well, i have noticed the lessons learned from this project have easily translated into my other design classes and avenues.
falling water is a beautiful building, surrounded and furnished in an untailored natural environment.
its interior is elegant and memorable, and this project has been a pleasure to work on and develop as a student that is still learning the software that is now defining our profession.
