The documentation of concept development and general processes

Sketch Aid

Leave a comment


Sketch Aid is an application designed to teach architecture and design students the meaning of developing in plan and section. Often times students limit their design process to 3D modeling, which they then cut into the sections to create their drawings. With this method there is no understanding of how to actually develop in section and plan, and thus the relationships across the progression of a building. With this in mind, Sketch Aid challenges the user’s understanding in these drawing strategies and thus pushes the user to develop their skills in working this way. The videos show the struggle turning into a more fluid workflow as users use the tool for longer and get the hang of the process.
