A good source for Building Construction theory – Civil Engineering Notes.
Hi Sonia, this post is for you again
Well, I have to let you know that my implementation of this project was not perfect. However, I am happy to share my ideas where to get the info for it. For me personally the best source was this book. It is not cheap unfortunately. But may be you can cooperate with someone to buy it on ebay and sell to the next generation of students when you finish. I was lucky to find it in my local library.
Here I found some useful information about bricks layering. Web site looking awful, don’t pay attention. You know what? If I was you there in Johannesburg I would make friends in University at Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture. I am perfectly sure they have all the info you looking for in their library. Or may be you can access the library without making friends The thing is I did not find a satisfying source in Internet, in this case books made better sense for me. Please take it as my personal experience only, check reading list in our student book again, ask other students and make your own way, remember I am just a student here. Good luck!
34.5 out of 40 for my booklet. To be perfectly honest it was a very boring thing to do. There is a second part in 5th set I did not start it yet. I do not know how would I make it without computer as some brave students do, I used everything I could – Photoshop for freehand drawings, Corel Draw for plans and brick schemes, Sketch Up for 3D. Yeah, useful project… I know, I know.
I have got 87 points out of 100 for drawings. Some minor comments for plan, elevations and section and “Well done” for freehand perspectives:

Project 4.4. did require a sampleboard as a part of submission. The company I used the product from does not provide nonreturnable samples and I was not clever enough to contact tutors before submissions with that issue. The sampleboard could have been done using photographs of unavailable products! I did not know that and sent the booklet only, so I have got 11 points of possible 20.
I presented the project on 4 boards and also submitted the talk through as required:

Before I started any developments on our project I spent about week asking every familiar young couple how would they describe the perfect wedding organizer. As a result of my research I have got a portrait of person who has previous experience of this kind of work and proud of it, sparkling with new ideas, creative, inventive, aware of last trends, perfectly organized and able to manage the team of various professionals, careful to details, cheerful, romantic, dynamic, positive.
In our habitation of the ideal wedding organizer the hall aiming to make the impression of that kind of person and office should help you actually to be that person. As for colours – I would take a cool spring palette to associate it psychologically with youth, beginning of a new life, fresh start.
Contemporary, professional, romantic, smart, cool and gentle spring colour scheme.
Here I am starting to publish marks and tutor’s comments for some projects. These are the overall grade and general comment for all set:
I have got an email that my 4th set’s projects are ready for sending back to me! There is mark B+, I can not wait to see the comments. Will have it back after Easter I guess.
Well, 5th set now. I would like to share my recent find – organic book by kaptiza. Fabulous source of inspiration for project 5.3 flooring.
I did it! I made it! Final check and packaging tonight and I will send the 4th set tomorrow after work! I’ll publish the projects with tutor’s comments after I have them back.
Markers are the very new media for me. They supposed to be a “rendering problem solver for designers”, but there is no magic as far as I see. Practice is a real problem solver. And experience. For my experience – not every paper will do, that’s what happened to my render. I used the heavy weight paper made by Daler-Rowney, 220 g/m.
