Construction basics for Architectural Students Concept is concept right? It doesn’t need to be structurally or constructionally viable, right?
WELL, YES AND NO.
Yes, one of the joys of architecture school is that not all your thinking needs to be shaped by the realities of what is constructible, or fits within a certain budget. In at least some of your design studio projects you're free to dream and explore and push boundaries and enhance your learning by finding your own limits.
But, when your drawings have glaring inadequacies in the construction or structural department, your tutors, critics, peers and clients will be distracted from the really rich, well-considered and revolutionary aspects of your work.
AND THAT'S ABSOLUTELY NOT WHAT YOU WANT.
your aim is to make your architectural concept believable.
