      What are the general:

      (Goals)
      How is the:
      Site Context
      Building
      Function specifically
      Defined (Means/Ends)
      Make final judgments on why the design is working. Observe problems in the overall process, revise and set the final parameters

      Front 3 levels and front 3 depths
      3 horizontal Sublevels in each level (eg. 1-3, 2-3, 3-3)
      3 vertical Sublevels in each depth (eg. 1-1, 2-1, 3-1)

    • Level 3 (model)
      Level 2 (model)
      Level 1 (model)
      Helicopter Thinking – Flying above, see all the roads and the train tracks
      Train Track Thinking – Linear, straight forward, one way
      Highway Thinking – Linear, but alternates exits, other roads
    • Level 1 (site design)
      Train Track – Site Considerations – General listings, data bases, outline methods
    • Level 2 (site design)
      Highway –
      Site Considerations – Site Sitting
      On-site observations, record using outlines
    • Level 3 (site design)
      Helicopter
      Thinking – Observe problems from organic process, revise and set parameters
    • Level 1 (building design)
      Applied Example
      Train Track – Spatial Functional Considerations – General listings, from site data bases, outline methods, environment – passive and active
    • Level 1 (site design)
      Applied Example
      Site Sitting– Observations recorded on-site using outline guides and sensory observations:
      Flora/fauna
    • Level 2 (building design)
      Highway –
      Spatial Function –
      Client Interviews, outline pro/con responses/observations determine, sf requirements, etc.
    • Level 2 (building design)
      Applied Example
      Highway –
      Spatial Function -
      Determine applied, massing, orientation, and circulation requirements, etc.
    • Level 3 (building design)
      Helicopter
      Spatial Function -
      Thinking – Observe problems from organic process, revise and set parameters, develop professional systems, with budget, CD’s, specs, etc.
    • Level 3 (building design)
      Applied Example
      Judgment and project parameters affected by actual budget/time schedules, and other constraints
    • Level 1 (Application)
      Train Track –
      Involve individual “craftsman”
      Input, and integration
      Into specific design applications – Mexican metal, ceramic, and paint
      Artisans.
    • Level 2 (application)
      Highway –
      Integrated context of
      Site, craft elements, and building
    • Level 3 (application)
      Helicopter –
      Combination of individual contribution, the integrated building, and synthesis with the greater surrounding community
    • CONCLUSIONS:
      • Design by open ended “Thought Model”
      • Open ended list data bases, outlines focusing
      on Site and User
      • Sensory Observation – pro/con via Site Sitting
      and User interview
      • Allow organic process development from data
      collected, expert development (design team)
      and legislative application
