Construction design, part 3

Google SketchUp mock-up model with some custom elements included. 

We have started our first excersise in the construction design course: pavings. On a given part of the project site we are to test out different materials and patterns, while facing issues such as surface runoff, pressure loads, dimensions and aesthetics.

The left-most sketch shows my design idea for the paving. Basically it’s a pattern of concrete elements arranged in a grid extruding from two points on opposite sides of the curved tram line.

Technical drawing of the overall look of the proposed paving.

Next step is principle sections showing the material layers, connections and surface shape, as well as detailed plans.
