I'm going to give you a snap show of what was presented to a school district we are working on. The client has already seen it and approved. It's this kind of work that makes architecture REALLY fun and exciting. This was one of the weirdest projects I've had to work on thus far, because we have to fit something in the context of these existing circular buildings that have barely any windows. The idea is to bride across them and flood this space with light. We're almost taking an airport concourse approach, because this will be a through way for the campus. I'm not sure what the end result will be, but here are the first thoughts!
Sketch Up Renderings
How we usually work is to have a design charette with everyone that can join and hash out the form together, then a couple of us will finalize the plan in Revit. Then, we take that and bring it into sketch up where we have another form charette, push and pull until we get something we're feeling. Then, once that has been approved, we move back into Revit and build it out of actual architectural elements. It's our intent to not design alone, and we feel that the more studio/crit environment produces better buildings for our clients.
