Initial designs – Group 4

Once the tecton had been chosen initial ideas were drafted by each member of the group, the designs would then be critiqued at a design review the following week. Each member of the group contributed designs to this design review with some interesting concepts being put forward. All members of the group were open to feedback on how there scheme could be improved, and this feedback was given by all members of the group.
Once a final scheme suggested by Dani Hunter was put forward the group worked upon a development of the initial idea over the following week before the group conducted another design review.

During the week research was also conducted into how Lubetkins structures appear to look so refined and lightweight. It was found that a small recess around the edge of the roof creates the illusion of being a lighter material than it is, and the small concrete support columns again suggest the roof is much more lightweight than it really is.
