3. This assignment shall be a lesson in understanding, drawing and representation. Show that you have an
understanding of the given site by creating a site analysis diagram.
Use what you have learned in the in-class assignment to create a legible, informative drawing. Zoom in and trace the main contours of the site. Your drawing should show the coastline, major and minor roads, bike paths, running paths, boat docks, trees and buildings. Each of these Layers of information should be drawn on an individual Layer.
You may decide to use color fields to represent some data; like the lake, the park, buildings etc, while you may choose to draw lines (over varying thickness) to represent other data; like street and paths. Some objects may fills and strokes of different thicknesses and fill colors. Imagine that you are creating a base map over which analysis data can be added.
Now that the site has been reduced to the essential information, show that you have an understanding of the site’s context to analyze and represent the effective data. Use lines/curves, arrows and fills to represent information like: major and minor traffic flow (cars, bikes, boats, pedestrians), prevailing wind direction (for Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter) and all of the above.
