ADMT Wk 1 Lesson 1_1 July 2011

1) Download the keynote from the ADMT google site. Filename: Yr 2_Semester 2_Lesson 1.

2) Complete the individual task first before the group task.

3) In groups of 3-4, discuss your findings about Architectural Design.
I need the Chairman to create a spreadsheet and share with the group leader (the youngest in the group). Type in the summarised information into the spreadsheet. Please remember to share the spreadsheet with me so that I can comment on it online.

4) The rest of the information is about the task for this semester. It will be individual work. Do drop me an email should there be a need for any clarifications.

You may start your research and decide on a location to build the building. You can also do research on buildings that have been converted such as chijmes and red dot museum. Look at how the buildings are being converted into something functional and at the same time preserving the building.

You may also look for existing buildings that you want to convert or to build from scratch. To build from scratch, you need to identify an open space and justify why you need to build something there.

Document your research on pages. (Individual work)

eLearning Lesson 2 by Eugene_Liow (14)

Part 1


This picture shows a hinge / joint from the door of a cupboard.



This picture shows the wheel and axle of a fan.



The next picture shows the linkages of a foldable chair.



The last picture shows the gears inside a correction tape.


Part 2



This is one problem I have found in my house. The main door of my house has no door stopper. Whenever we open the door, the handle of the door always collides with and scratches against the white wall of the house. I will suggest that that the hinges of the door have a slow moving rack and pinion to cushion and slow the door down. This mechanism will prevent the door from smashing against the wall. Something like the image below.

eLearning Lesson 2 Part 2 by Ethan_Soh (12)

1st Image(Problem): This is the corner of the wall of a room. the corner is built inwards, it is not built outwards. This wastes much space as the bed is unable to be placed at the wall on both sides. 

2nd Image(Solution): My solution is the built the wall such that it is built with a corner outwards. This is will give the bed more space to be pushed in and waste less space.

eLearning Lesson 2 by Tan JingHeng (20) (Part 2)

Problem, The folding door in my toilet 'comes out' of the track sometimes.

Solution: Change the type of track

eLearning Lesson 2 by Tan JingHeng (20)

Scissors (1,2,3)
- It is a First Class Lever (Effort - Fulcrum - Load). The Effort is applied at the handles.

Stapler(4,5,6)
The spring resist stretching, it keeps the carriage in place when refilling staple bullets.

Stapler again (4,7,8)
- It is a Third Class Lever (Fulcrum - Load - Effort). The Effort is applied at the center of the stapler.

Correction Tape (9,10,11,12)
-The spring resist compression, it is used in correction tape so the when the button at the top of the correction tape is pressed, the cartridge does not go all the way down.

eLearning Lesson 1 by Yeo Jun Peng (22)

Problem: The door don't close totally.
Solution: Adding a light lock into the hinge so the door would close totally and could open easily too.

eLearning Lesson 1 by Yeo Jun Peng (22) - Part Two


eLearning Lesson 2 by Clarabelle Ang (03)

Current Situation:
It is hard to pull the curtains fully to the end, thus i recommended applying inclined planes to the pole.

How does it help:
The pole is slanted down to the middle to aid in the sliding of the curtain when it is pulled.
Lesser effort required to pull it properly.
