estimating the floor plan... [curry]

On Tuesday, we were split into groups and assigned a building on campus to estimate the floor plan of.  My group wandered through and around the Curry building, noting basic shapes of floor space, orientation of hallways, placement of stairwells/elevators/entrances and tried to depict major areas like the auditorium, lobby, main entrances, playground area, and layout of each floor.  The basement [first floor] was confusing as it wasn't one big H-like form like the upper two levels.  Instead, it was divided into at least 3 different sections, maybe more, each consisting of only a small hallway and a handful of rooms.  However, I think we understood most of the buildings plan and were able to clearly draw it out on paper.
