Drawing Type 1.) Stages of the Lifecycle of Decay and Renewal:
Storyboard showing what the ‘intervention’/ act of passive decay exactly is at each stage. This drawing will be used as a sort of key, so it is clear when looking at any realisation drawing, what stage of the lifecycle it relates to. Thumbnails will be copied onto the larger drawings to also make this clear.
- Add timescale in years, showing length of time it takes to get to each stage.
- Keep adding garden/ landscape stages ( the lifecycle is incomplete as shown here)
Drawing Type 2.) ‘Spiral’ Concept drawings for all three cottages over the landscape- Prospect, Pleasant Cottage and Shingle House (These will finally link together it one big landscape Spiral drawing)
Drawings show perspective views as a collage in a spiral format showing how the site’s occupation shifts from each protagonist. This is emphasised by the distorted way of looking for each protogonist e.g. Derek’s human view, bird’s magnified view, garden’s ‘worms eye’ view and landscapes aerial view.
- Add annotation overly page outlining how each of the views relates to the whole spiral process of decay and renewal – e.g. ‘beachcombing for treasures’
- Maybe I will overly sketching and material collage onto these drawings to resemble what I have done before.
- I need to make the perspective views more seamless, but for now I am just placing them in the order that they are relevent in the spiral process.

Shingle House Spiral Drawing- this still needs to be set up!
Drawing Type 3.)
Exploded drawing showing the stages of decay/ design process and what elements are subtracted/ added to and from the site. The direction of this drawing dictate different things. From bottom to top it is showing what parts of the site have been subtracted/ removed beginning with Prospect Cottage as the core. From left to right it is showing what effect this has on the development of the site. I have also started to add pleasant cottage showing how the same process has infected that site (bottom to top)- and similarly the effects of this on the landscape (left to right). Each of the individual pages are size A3. I am hoping that I can print several large drawings that link together as shown to make one big final drawing encompassing the whole project.
I have already begun hand drawing over some of these basic line drawings. I will also try to go back to the collage style I used earlier on and use the two drawing styles together.
Sorry for the bad quality screen shot!
- All drawings are line work for now- but will rework in both hand drawing and collage drawing styles.
- Keep adding views from more stages of the process
- I would like this drawing to be more continuous and linked on each individual A3 page, but I am not sure how.
- Annotate all drawings- outlining the stage of the process
Hand drawing progress:
Now I have these drawings set up I am going to continuously add to them with views as I finish the design. I have still yet to draw my interventions onto Pleasant cottage and Shingle House, but these are both modelled now so I can get on with that and I can add to these drawings as I go. Also I am going to try and do at least one hand drawing a day from now and see how that goes.
Any advice on the execution of these drawings would be great! Thanks!

Example of the section I would like to detail at various scales (zooming in further each time to show a more magnified view of voids and material quality):
