Use any techniques of hand-rendering to replicate one of the buildings on the list below.

2) COLLECTING INFORMATION
How old is this building? Who occupies it? How is it used? These questions can help you decide how you would like to portray the structure.
Through researching can you find any exisiting hand renderings of the building?
What kinds of pictures are available to you?
Are you able to visit the site? Take pictures of the building?
3) BRAINSTORM & ANALYZE
What are some of the perspectives that you could consider drawing?
Are there any angles that appeal to you more than others? Why or why not?
What tools appeal to you? Which medium do you prefer?
Do some preliminary sketches before deciding on your final direction.
4) DEVELOP SOLUTIONS
Now that you have chosen your final direction, create your hand-rendering!
5) GATHER FEEDBACK
Show your teachers and fellow classmates, maybe they will notice something that you didn’t.
If possible, include your original sketch ideas in the discussion, that might help others understand.
Notice any patterns inside what people say? Maybe this can help define your final decisions.
6) IMPROVE AND FINISH YOUR DESIGN
Incorporate feedback into your design, and refine your project until you feel comfortable submitting it to the Chicago Architecture Foundation for the Newhouse judges to evaluate.
Your final project must include the following components:
Drawing size must be 18” x 24” center mounted on a 22” x 28” board.
