What's up Doc?

construction docs.jpgIn my studio course (IDES 3606), we're making progress on construction docs that are due at the end of the semester. A lot of times, people think interior design is just about picking colors and making stuff look cool, but it is SO much more than that. Yes, there are fun elements when brainstorming designs and developing ideas, but once those solutions are determined, how are they built? Designers and Architects have to create construction documents that can communicate and articulate the intended design. Depending on the size of the project, these document sets can range in size from being around 10 sheets to 100 or more.

Each student in my studio is creating document sets based on their NEXT office design solutions. It's a great experience getting to see a project all the way from beginning to end and I look forward to completing my drawing set. It'll be a great portfolio piece to show that I'm a designer who also has technical capabilities.

Chat soon.
