Micro Homes Competition (3h – Project Management)
Today I was put in charge of managing a competition that we are entering. The competition it for a Micro Home design organized by the Bee Breeders organization.
I went over the requirements and set up a spread sheet with the requirements, the deliverables, the points that we have to touch upon and proceeded to create a schedule for the competition. Everyone has other projects that they are working on so it is important to have deadlines for each deliverable. This is a non billable project so we can’t spend all of our efforts on it. I then started to look at precedents on tiny homes and started sketching out layouts to understand the amount of space we are working with: only 269 for a young professional couple. It was a fun exercise.

540 King (5h- Project development and Design)
Today I continued helping with the 540 King BAR submission creating streetscapes, facades and building elevations. I worked in Revit and photoshop to do this. This took most of the day. I also worked on area calculations for The Eden project a residential project.

540 King (3h- Project development and Design)
Today i continued helping with the 540 King BAR submittal and editing facades and elevation drawings. I also started looking at precedents for the micro home competition and putting them in a folder so we can reference back to what has already been done and develop new typologies of micro homes.

540 King (3h-Project development and Design)
Micro Homes (2h-Project development and Design)
Since I am not working tomorrow I had to make sure I was done doing what needed to be done for the submittal for 540 King street which I did for half of the day.
I then started sketching out typologies of micro homes one with a horizontal layout and one with a vertical layout. It is not working quite as well as I wanted to but it is getting there
This week I learned more about:
- Coordinating schedules
- Setting deadlines
- Working with a limited amount of space
- Tiny space layouts and programming
- Think outside of the box when thinking about architectural typologies
