Week 8 - Lecture & Individual Milestone

Rob from Cox Architects presented his ideas on the way he thought designers should think and the future of design. He began by showing us several projects he had worked on as well as his currectly work with the use of G.I.S. (Geographic Information System) 
"What language do you speak?"

A strong statement that Rob constantly refered back to. As diverse as any spoken language can be, a designers language can easy be portrayed in the same light. The diversity of a designers language often refers to how they present a design with the tools they have on hand, whether it be the manipulation of a sketch or the lines and surfaces created in a modelling software.

A designer should always be thinking on on two levels, direct and indirect, to fully convey our message to the world. Rob believes that only then will the "Errors per cubic meter" in Architecture reduce. He also explained how the sharing of information, ideas and models will benefit the Architectural community in the future and better design, art & architecture.

"Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan"

Major Milestone : 

Truck Interior Modelling Progression

In this video I begin to model the dashboard along with the airconditioning outlet, buttons and compartments.

My role in the Oculus group is to model part of the Track Cabin along side Mathew. It's been a bit tricky as we've had to share the model frequently to see how certain components of the model tie in with one another but over all its been manageable.

For our Presentation on Intellectual Property I'll be focusing on a brief introduction with my main focus being on :
     - What is Intellectual Property?
     - Summarising : Design, Trademark, Copyright, Patent, Plan Breeder's Right        & Others

     - And how to take ownership of I.P
