Floor Plan Studies
I found a website that explain  Floor Plan Fundamentals which i personally feel quite useful in my floor plan planning. I preferable with the axis floor plan layout because i can showcase my campaign medium (recycle building miniature) in the middle in order to attract audiences. I plan to make it open environment as possible since the branding is not well establish which peoples might have no idea what it is about.

Another floor plan i secondly prefer will be the plaza floor plan layout which easier on leading people walk path with the arrangement designed. Its can lead people eye on which they will see first as they walk in.
