Due Date: Friday, March 1
On Wednesday, February 27 we will be visiting Bergmeyer Associates where former BHS student Daniel Ricardelli is employed as an architect.
We have a brief tour of the architecture firm space (the library, print rooms, critique space, etc.) and then meet in our conference room for a little presentation on architecture and the way we work. Dan will talk a little about his experience, and one of the associates will speak about the profession of architecture, and where the field is moving. The Human Resources Director will say a few words about the job application process and what she feels is important starting out in this field.
We will then tour the BSA Space. BSA Space is Boston’s leading cultural institution on architecture and design, and is home to the Boston Society of Architects. We will see the exhibition Design Boston Biennial 2012.
After BSA Space tour we will have lunch at Boloco. Either bring your lunch or money for lunch.

Houzz ipad app
Use the app Houzz to collect and gather images
Create an isometric drawing of a piece of furniture in your home.
Use pencil, a ruler if you want and draw guidelines to help you. The drawing should fill the entire page. Refer to the previous post for examples of isometric drawings.
Isometric drawings: are 3D drawings. They show three sides, all in dimensional proportion, but none are shown as a true shape with 90 degree corners. All the vertical lines are drawn vertically but all horizontal lines are drawn at 30 degrees to the base line. Isometric is an easy method of drawing 3D images.
Check out this video of an isometric drawing of a chair.
