We have been finalizing building design sketches and models these past few weeks. We have selected sites in downtown Atlanta next to the Aquarium. Students are required to create a site plan of their commercial building in CAD due this Friday. Students need to research precedent studies of similar building typologies, create a program list including square feet requirements for each space, create a preliminary ground floor plan of their building considering adjacencies and circulation paths, and define the users for their building.
