once the design is approved, there is an important next step-other than to celebrate!
documenting design is a unique art. as the author of the project, the documents not only tell the story of the design, but also a guide and a step-by-step assembly of instructions. To do this, you have to know how the project will be put together and then disassemble it and bring it all together in a series of plans, elevations, sections and details.
trace paper is a great way to rough out the process. i start with a quick sketch of the structure I want to document and then i typically like to “build” on paper, almost like a “flip-book” and then separate them into instructions.
the below is what i did for this project. hope it helps explain the process.
