Here are some examples of diagrams from various projects using 2nd year projects. There are many different ways to diagram: adjacencies ( the bubble diagram) to visual illustrations of codes (ramp) , to ergonomics ( the person in the chair) to showing highly dense areas ( side image showing red as dense areas, orange as populated areas and yellow and occupied areas). Circulation of how the space in used and the relationship that it has with other tasks can help as well. Remember that people are the heart of any design so show how people engage with your design doing various tasks.

Taking it all in

This view of the center city park provides a great example of what can be done in a small area. The surroundings provide a place to gather while still allowing for tranquil moments of nature juxtaposed with the theater of every day life in downtown.

My Mental Map

The pathway starts at the my house in college hill and works its way through downtown to Cafe Europa. The sites indicated are those that are memorable to me when I walk to this unique site within downtown Greensboro. The pathway not only creates a datum line connecting all of the drawings,but it provides a simple map that helps understand the proximity of the buildings to one another.
