I am currently looking for some good projects (public spaces) with very good contour plans online that I can learn from. I am not very good in drawing contours but I know it’s pivotal if I want to become a tsuccessful designer.
Can someone let me know project names / plans online?
While I don’t know of any online, I’d suggest thinking about topography in terms of spot elevations. The contour lines superimposed on a drawing always come after the spot elevations are determined. The contour lines just kind of “fill in the blanks”. Find a resource that focuses on the (relatively) simple math behind site grading and the contours become easy to understand. Good luck
Hargraeves, ReedHilderbrand, MVVA, Haag projects; I recall the Seattle Sculpture Garden being an example for the architecture students.
A lot of the plans may not be online. In flat runs the spots and grades are more decisive, in free form work, the lines are how you can control the grading process, though a lot of it will be in the field during construction.
