In an endeavor to produce top class buildings, The AEC Associates CAD Design and Drafting Services stick to some fundamental principles, however, architecture principles too evolve with the changing times. We started to discuss the top contemporary design principles for CAD design and drafting services in our previous post. We talked about the value of technology, the necessity to keep innovating and not leaving our inherent fundamentals; the discussion is continued here.
· Don’t depend too heavily on the machine
Architecture is a creative profession, you need to let your imagination fly wildly at times. Depending too much on the computer can sometimes be detrimental for the creativity of CAD design and drafting services. The designer must not forget the value of picking up a pencil and sketching freehand on a paper sometimes. One can even conceptualize a design by painting something that is in their imagination. The Belgian Embassy, New Delhi is a remarkable building that came out of a sketch painting done by Satish Gujral. It later turned into a historic monument.
· It’s all about solving problems
Architecture is not pure mathematics, yet solving problems is a part of the game here too. Modern buildings have become so complex in nature that you have to look at it in a logical way to come up with viable solutions. A multi specialty hospital, for example, has so many functions and so many disciplines to satisfy, you need to find the right juxtaposition of all the spaces and functions. Computer software prove to be helpful in this context, however, you also must possess a logical, knowledgeable mind too.
· Try to be different
CAD design and drafting services should try to develop their own style, to be different from others. Creating prototype or ordinary buildings is not going to help your cause. A remarkable looking structure will not just make a name for you, it can create an identity for the entire city or region. Rashtrapati Bhawan (President’s house) created by Robert Lutyens is still considered synonymous with the Indian Capital New Delhi and the Sydney Opera House, shaped like sea shells, has become the real identity of the city of Sydney.
We shall continue discussing top contemporary design principles for CAD design and drafting services in our next post too.
