….in this phase of the project, we constructed two large models to begin to understand the structural systems and details of our designs. these issues were explored through both a 1/4” = 1’ sectional model and a 3/4” = 1’ wall section.
1. BUILDINGS CONSTRUCTED AS A COMPLETE VOLUME WITH A SECTION CUT:
LE CORBUSIER - VILLA SAVOYE : the diagonal section cut reflects the division between private and public spaces on the first floor (..with some compromises).
ADOLF LOOS - VILLA MULLER : section cut through building
YALIN ARCH.DESIGN - BRANCH OFFICE : section cut through building
2. BUILDINGS CONSTRUCTED IN A WAY TO ALLOW VIEWS INSIDE:
UN STUDIO - Mercedes Benz : the model allows views into the building
ATELIER 11 - PAN LONG GU CHURCH : no glass in glazed openings allows for interior views of building
3XN - Courthouse competition : the many windows in the building allow for interior views
SAUCIER PERROTTE - MC GILL UNIVERSITY PAVILION
3. BUILDINGS CONSTRUCTED TO SHOW THE LAYERS OF THE FACADE:
4. BUILDINGS CONSTRUCTED AS A SECTION (WALL OR ROOF REMOVED):
NOT REALLy A SECTION MODEL but beautiful, never-the-less : concrete and corten steel model
DETAILING THE FACADE……. a perforated skin in front of a thermal wall -
GOULD EVANS, Hertz Center, Tulane
DETAILED SECTIONAL VIEWS…….

FACADE DETAIL SEC. + ELEVATION…..
samples for facade detail section - elevation - plan drawings
Products for Facades, Curtainwalls:
below is one example - elements of a MULLION-TRANSOM construction system (also called, stick glazing system):
the width of the glazing cap can be as narrow as 1 1/2 inches:
Example of a mullion-transom system with door element:
Central Archive EDF, Bure / France, by LAN architects (Paris) - system used is VISS TVS by JANSEN with Janisol stainless steel door
