Site Plans

I remember drawing these - site plans help one understand the surrounding context in a different way. Personally, once I have understood what I have drawn (2D), it is much easier to then go to the site and translate that into the physical environment (3D). In other words, I love looking and reading maps. This interest was particularly useful in the Rome trip, where we had to study maps by Tempesta and Nolli, and then comparing them with prints by Falda, Vasi, Piranesi - to see how the urban pattern of Rome had evolved. 

Anyway here are some site plans (and siting diagram, second drawing) of Gasworks Arts Park done last year - these were hand drawn. Just to put them in context/scale though, the first drawing was on an A4; the second drawing on an A3:
