Final Review of
“An Urban Pavilion”

The final review of the Urban Pavillion project will be on Monday February 16 starting at 900 Hrs in the drawing studio on the 5th floor.

Guest critic will be Stuart Kinmond, a McGill graduate now in practice in Ottawa.

What you should present:

•    A scale model 1:200 (and if you wish another one at 1:100). In this project the model is a very important piece of your presentation. The model should show the important aspects of the structural and environmental systems as truthfully as possible. (i.e. tension elements should look like they are in tension, and transparent elements should be see-through)
•    Detailed Plan of the site 1:100) and two sections 1:200. Two elevations 1:200. A large scale section showing an important detail of your building (for instance in the case of a tensile roof show the section through the fabric at the place where it is held in place or, if you have a façade that is connected to a flexible roof (grid shell or cable net), show how they are fixed together etc.
•    Two presentation drawings, one from the inside-out during the day, and one from the outside-in at night.
