Bubble Sketch House Plan



The students will develop a bubble diagram of their potential house plan. A bubble diagram (also known as schematic) is a rough, freehand sketch, composed of circular shapes used to suggest the arrangement and comparative sizes of the main areas of activity. These shapes will help the students to organize the house plan into a functional plan.
