I like this view. It is like a Tom Holzer dearship near where I drive to work lately. I believe the design problem was based on the Tom Holzer dearler ship before their recent remodel. Anyway, I left the Sales manager office, General Manager office, and FI (fInance investment) offices where they were in my solution. I suppose I had to work up these perspectives because it was quick and I was enthused.
There is a firm that I would really like to work at. They had a battery of tests which are taken prior to being selected for an interview. The problems involved use of AutoCad 2014, Revit 2014, and hand sketching. Each problem focused on drawing a car dealership. The CAD problems were about 10 objectives to see if you could follow directions on completing CAD tasks. Those tasks had nothing to do with design. It was simply reproducing a drawing or drawing set. That was easy. However, I chose not to complete the tasks on Revit since it is the easiest software to use for making drawings, albiet 3D modelling which is intelligent. Having spent the majority of time on hand sketching, I have decided to produce from memory a buidling that would have resulted from the parameters of the sketch I made for this job interview problem. I spent three and one half hours on the three problems but probably less on this project you will see here.
I currently work with Granite. I like this reflection off a dark color. This self portrait will be pasted onto a wall in the SketchUP file I used to produce the images for this Car Dealership Project eventually. It is kind of an Easter egg (like in gaming for you non-afficionos).
This is the outside side of the building I spent the most time on - but it did not take much.
I recalled the floor plan I worked on for the sketch problem at the job interview - and my solution. In fact, my solution could look something like this. It is a design solution. The componenst of the program were listed in the problem. On the right is the customer waiting area. A main feature is that to wait, the customer must walk through the showroom on a diagonal path. I can not remember any dealer ships that do this, but they all have the customer 'see the showroom. Most do not require you to walk through it. I think it would be a good idea.
