Problems with uploading?!

May 21st, 2012 § Comments Off § permalink

If anyone has problems uploading large files (such as the pdf version of your submittal) just upload the jpegs and bring the file on a CD or thumb drive.

Also, since you are all hopefully working in InDesign, check out the info in this link.

InDesign has a way of building up info in its database that creates larger than necessary files. Some of this has to do with how you use the program, some of it is the fault of InDesign. Key concept: do a “Save as” before you export.

Garden Walls & Fences FYI

May 14th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Below is an example of the actual code that describes the requirements for the development of the site. It is an incredibly prescriptive code. You are not required to comply fully with this code. You are required to understand it and offer an architecture design student’s interpretation of the code. The requirement of the code creates the necessity to expend design and construction energy at the edges of the site.

From Gainesville, Florida, Code of Ordinances PART II – CODE OF ORDINANCES, Chapter 30 – LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE, SECTION 3. – SPECIAL AREA PLAN FOR COLLEGE PARK

Garden Walls & Fences.

1. Fences, garden walls and hedges are required along all unbuilt rights-of-way which abut streets and alleys. Fences, garden walls and hedges are not required in front of building walls when walls built closer than 12 feet to the property line.

2. On corners where sight lines are necessary, the maximum height for fences, garden walls, and hedges shall be 30 inches.

3. Heights for other locations shall be:

• 30 inches min. height for all fences, garden walls & hedges

• 42 inches max. along public rights-of-way, including alleys

• 72 inches max. along all other property lines.

4. Decorative wrought iron type fences (black iron or metal) may be allowed up to 8 feet when designed with a base not to exceed 3 feet in height, made out of cement, brick, decorative block or stone. The fence design shall be pickets with a minimum of 3 inches between each picket. Decorative pillar ornaments may extend up to 24 inches above the main fence line.
