Above are my precedent diagrams for our tertia mock firm design competition. I chose to create the diagrams based on the most important information I took from my skyscraper and workplace precedents.
The skyscraper was about generating structural elements that influence the internal organization. My workspace was significant in its ability to generate a spatial mindshare; dissolving boundaries through the use of partition walls, low profile cubicles, exposed columns and clerestory windows. A psychological connection is also made by bold timber beams that run the ceiling, and a wooden floor that carries light across its luster.
