Vocabulary items Brief (n.): detailed instructions or information that are given at a meeting Design brief: is a written document for a design project, which includes a description of design objectives Once a situation statement is produced designers will analyse the statement and produce a brief outline of exactly what it is they have to do. This outline summarises the aim of their task and states briefly the type of thing that is needed. It is called "the design brief."
Vocabulary items Let’s imagine I am a website designer and you want me to design a website. Obviously, unless you tell me what you want, in the way of content, layout and colourings etc - or at least some ideas, I wouldnt know where to start, so the information I would want from you is the design brief: a set of instructions or suggestions as a starting point from which to proceed further.
Vocabulary items There are essentially two types of design brief that you could use. The first is an "open brief" and the second is a "closed brief".
Vocabulary items An open design brief This type of design brief enables you to devise many possible solutions to the need. It allows you to have a large degree of freedom to experiment with a range of design proposals (ideas). An open brief does not tell you what the solution is going to be and will be useful if at this stage you do not know exactly what it is you are going to produce.
Vocabulary items A closed design brief This will limit the range of solutions you can determine for your project and narrow the likely outcome by suggesting the type of solution you have to produce. It doesn't tell you exactly what your design will look like but it will state what the solution will be.
Vocabulary items Concept (n.): an idea of how sth is, or how sth should be done In other words, it is the reasoning behind an idea, strategy, or proposal with particular emphasis placed on the benefits brought on by that idea. Examples of concepts include the design for a new automobile or the pitch behind an advertising campaign.
Vocabulary items Sketch (n.): a simple picture that is drawn quickly and does not have many details E.g. She drew a sketch map of the area to show us the way. E.g. Richard drew a rough sketch of his apartment on a napkin. E.g. An automobile is born in a simple sketch and finally hits the road years later, after a rigorous round of tests.
Vocabulary items Preliminary Drawings: The initial plans for projects prepared by the designer or architects and engineers firm during the early planning or promotinal stage of the building development. They provide a means of communication between the designer and the user.
Vocabulary items Preliminary Drawings: These drawings are not used for construction, but they are used for exploring design concepts, material selection, preliminary cost estimates, approval by the customer, and a basis for the preparation of finished working drawings. E.g. Preliminary drawings are then turned into working drawings.
Comprehension Qs. Read part A in the book and answer the following Qs. 1) What are the dwg types mentioned in the e-mail? Please define them in your own words. Ans: rough sketches & preliminary drawings Rough sketches are very simple pictures drawn quickly without much detail. On the other hand, preliminary dwgs (PDs) are the next step in which we develop skecthes into (PDs). PDs give us detailed information about the building, providing a basis for the preparation of working drawings.
Comprehension Qs. Read part A in the book and answer the following Qs. 2) Why do the ideas of the architect form an adventurous concept? Ans: Because the design brief was pretty open. In other words, the architect was able to reach a variety of ideas/solutions since the design brief gave him a large degree of freedom to do so.

Vocabulary items (Part B) Draft (n.): a piece of a plan that is not yet in its finished form E.g. To finalise a design project, you have to go over your first draft again and again. E.g. The differences are beyond recognition between the rough/orginal and final drafts of the building.
Vocabulary items (Part B) Issue (v.): give sth to sb, especially officially Syn: send out, distribute E.g. The sketches of the camera were issued to the team head. E.g. The preliminary drawings have been issued to the specialists in our team.
Vocabulary items (Part B) Circulate (v.): send information to all people in a group Syn: send out, distribute E.g. The sketches of the camera were circulated to all members. E.g. The preliminary drawings have been circulated to all the team members.
Vocabulary items (Part B) Comment (on) (v.): to express an opinion about sth E.g. After our specialists receive the sketches, they will comment on them. E.g. The client did not comment on the drawings, so we thought she had liked them.
Vocabulary items (Part B) Amend (v.): change sth slightly in order to correct a mistake or improve it Syn: revise E.g. Following the comments of the unit head, we are going to amend/revise some of the drawings. Amendment (n.) E.g. She has done some amendments to the rough sketches.
Vocabulary items (Part B) Supersede (v.): take the place of sth that is no longer the best available Syn: replace E.g. At the end of a design development phase, all rough sketches are usually superseded by finished working drawings. E.g. After certain amendments, drawing 130A becomes drawing 130B. In other words, dwg 130A is superseded (by dwg 130B).
Vocabulary items (Part B) Refine (v.): to improve sth by making small changes to it Syn: amend, revise E.g. The testers made some comments and critiques that helped us refine the design. E.g. To decide where to refine the design, you have to look at the overall drive system.
Vocabulary items (Part B) Sign off (phr. v.): to give your formal approval to sth, by signing your name Syn: authorise E.g. Major repainting work needs to be signed off by a qualified engineer. E.g. After some amendments, senior engineers generally sign off/authorise drawings.
Vocabulary items (Part B) Work to sth (phr. v.): to follow a plan/design E.g. After working drawings are finalized, the construction team can work to them. E.g. The fabrication team will work to the plan when we receive clarification about the current drawing.
