I realise this blog is called Arch. Comm but I would really prefer to start over. Because I have already provided my tutors with this address, I figured it would just be easier to link you from HERE to my ACTUALY ARCHITECTURAL COMMUNICATIONS BLOG!
Thanks for that,

Birds-eye view of the two offices (Steven Jobs below, Donatella Versace in/ hanging off the bridge) and the common meeting space, which is the white space to the left.
Image of Steven Job's office space. I experimented with the notion of open spaces which are nonetheless defined as rooms. I thought initially to seek inspiration from the black and white i-pods, however, in the end I decided to use bright red and orange textures which I thought embodied Job's personality as somewhat aggressive, endlessly energetic and innovative.
Image of the meeting space with the dining table inside. While the entrace builds drama the inside is fairly simple with calming lighing in order to be most conducive to calm and rational behaviour and negotiations.
Image of Donatella Versace's office space: using her well-known favourite colour purple. Initially I had a runway running though the inside of her office, but eventually opted for a more subtle use of the catwalk. In her office there is a secluded area for her privacy but also many vantage points from which she can view the models walking along the open-air catwalks.
An image with which I sought to demonstrate the harmony between different elements of the map and the tension between the two power-figures.
