During the past couple of weeks in my architecture studio, we’ve been doing some thinking exercises to help our brains think like designers. One of the assignments we had dealt with three dimensional thinking. We were given the top, front, and side views of 12 objects. From those views, we had to generate the 3-D object. This is an important skill since architects have to be able to look at drawings of buildings and know what it’s going to look like pretty easily. The top row are obliques, the second are isometric, and the last row are plan obliques. I had done this in one of my CivE classes, so I already knew what I was doing (somewhat). But these were really hard/complex! They were definitely brain teasers!
