BUILD A RECREATION CENTER USING GEOMETRY

Architecture


Project - Architecture - Art - Bridges - Computer Games - Landscape Architecture - Other

As the architectural team, it will be your responsibility to design the actual recreation center structure. Below are some links which should help your team explore various styles. Once you have some ideas for your research, consider asking an architect any questions you may have to help you design your project. Keep in mind the size of the island and any other details which may relate to your design.

Your report should explain the role of the architect. It should also explain why geometry is important to architects and how it is used in their work. Your design should include elevations of each side of the exterior and a basic floor plan.
