plaza de armas, viejo san juan

last sunday i went with my students to plaza de armas in old san juan to have them develop a few spatial / analytical drawings.

sketching this space has always proved to be a good exercise that challenge students to see beyond the ordinary in other to understand the design intentions that shape the space.

although every time I do this exercise I make a drawing to illustrate the ideas, this one has always been my favorite. I made it when I took my first design studio students back in 2002.
