Step 1: Look at a photograph of Villa Lewaro, designed by Vertner Woodson Tandy. Using artful thinking, analyze the components of the photograph.
Step 2: Distribute Architect Folders to small groups and explore various blueprints and architects about Robert Taylor, Vertner Tandy, and Paul Williams. Explore how items are placed in blueprints.
Step 3: Using the blueprints, measure the areas of each rectangle and then explore how these shapes are used in both overlapping and non-overlapping ways.
Step 4: Students create their own blueprints of their dream home using graph paper and drawing pencils, ensuring the use of overlapping and non-overlapping parts.
