PROPOSED EGRESS PLANS

Le Corbusier's unbuilt project for the French Embassy in Brasilia was modeled and evaluated for its compliance with today's standards for proper means of egress as per the International Building Code. The project modified all stairwells, ramps, corridors, and balconies to comply with the IBC and egress requirements for each room and its occupancy conditions.

These plans were drafted using AutoCAD 2015 software. SCALE 1' = 1/16"

VERTICAL EGRESS DESIGN
       
     
VERTICAL EGRESS DESIGN

New means of egress were designed to the exterior of the building to respect the original intent of the architect. Aesthetics and construction details were taken from past projects by LeCorbusier, especially in the new ramp design.

These drawings were drafted using AutoCAD 2015 software after being modeled in Rhinoceros 5 software.

EGRESS EXPERIENCE
       
     
EGRESS EXPERIENCE

The proposed ramps were designed to occupy roughly the same footprint as the existing ramps to maintain similar proportions to the rest of the building. The front entry ramps encompasses a spiral, sweeping motion while the eastern stairway reflects the geomtetry of the exterior shading system.

These images were modeled using Rhinoceros 5 software, then rendered using VRay Render software.

Framing Plan Layout
       
     
Framing Plan Layout

This project explored and modeled the framing construction of Shim-Sutcliffe Architect's Craven Road Residence in order to communicate the basics of platform frame construction, floor and roof framing, corner framing techniques, and the layering method of a rain screen enclosure.

This project was modeled using Rhinoceros 5 software, with drawings and corner details prepared in AutoCAD 2015 software. SCALE 1' = 3/16"

AXONOMETRIC ASSEMBLY DRAWING
       
     
AXONOMETRIC ASSEMBLY DRAWING

The existing house was evaluated through pictures and drawings for clues to its construction and assembly of its framing. Emphasis was placed on floor structures and load bearing walls.

SCALE 1' = 3/16"

CORNER DETAILS
       
     
CORNER DETAILS

These drawings were drafted using AutoCAD 2015 software to explore the assembly and layering of a rain screen, as well as the methods for framing wall studs at various corner conditions.

SCALE 1' = 3"
