Project 2 Assessment Criteria

Project 2 Assessment Criteria  – The Architecture Fiction Set.

Below is the Project 2 assessment criteria where I have extracted the text provided by our Unit Co-ordinator Yasu and created a guideline format which I find easier to refer to. I have segmented each topic into three colours which will help create my "plan of attack" in the coming weeks.

Strategically communicate an architectural proposal through a creative as well as logically and realistically constructed series of events in the form of a factitious story.  
REALITY (12.5%): Have relevant contexts you can observe today been studied and well incorporated into your Architecture Fiction? Has the development been documented appropriately in your blog and outcomes been presented well in the final presentation/submission?
CREATIVITY (12.5%): Have background contexts extracted from your team's scenario developed in Project One been refined and developed into a unique and imaginative plot for your Architecture Fiction? Have the development been documented appropriately in your Blog and outcomes been communicated well in your presentation/submission?  The story has to be developed and presented through methods of your choice such as a series of captured scenes, storyboard and/or a movie.

Design an architectural entity that works. Describe the most important aspects of your proposal as well as your proposal should be a response to the future contexts that you are to communicate in your story.
PURPOSE (15%): Has the purpose of your proposed architectural entity been defined in response to needs and desires of future citizens? Is the design response appropriate? Has the development been well documented in your blog? Have outcomes been communicated well in your final presentation/submission? Why should your proposal be realised? How does it offer meaningful spaces and services for future citizens if realised?
NAVIGATION (15%): Has specific uses of your proposed spaces been studied and the circulation within and/or access to the entity been studied and demonstrated? Is it evident in the design? Has the development been well documented and communicated in the blog and final presentation/submission? How do people arrive at a space? How do they find the space? How do they move between spaces? Your proposal needs to address issues concerning how your design offers appropriate and meaningful access to and from your architectural entity and circulation within and between each space. It is very important that you constantly evaluate and re-evaluate your access and circulation strategies.
INTEGRITY (15%): Is a good level of structural and/or operational integrity and unity clearly visible in your design proposal? Are appropriate structures, details, materials and/or technologies used to construct your proposed spaces? Has the development been well documented in the blog and outcomes been demonstrated well in final presentation/submission? You are required to demonstrate structural and operational integrity of your physical and/or virtual spaces/artefacts and show how they work and are maintained as an appropriate architectural entity.

Communicate the value and relevance of your architectural proposal.
PRESENCE & IDENTITY (15%): Has the presence and relevance of the proposed architectural entity and its identity in its location (site) been considered with strong understanding of what it should provide and be known for? Has the idea development been well documented in the blog and outcomes been well communicated in the final presentation/submission?
FIRST-PERSON EXPERIENCE (15%): Has the experience of users been considered and effectively presented from the perspectives of users? Has the investigation been documented in the Blog and presented well in the final presentation/submission? It is imperative that you made your design decisions based on the requirements of people who experience and use the proposed spaces. You need to demonstrate not only generic appearances of spaces with people, but also construct scenarios to depict how specific people in specific needs and circumstances experience and utilise spaces you proposed.
