Hogwarts

I was wondering if Hogwarts and the area around it has some sort of accepted bluprints/ map

Nope. There are some basic diagrams of what goes where and the grounds, but no ones done a floor plan for it. The fact that the castle moves constantly actually disallows that, even if it is a good excuse to cover Rowlings slip ups.

In any case, the way its represented in the first two movies is the closest to canon, in you want to know.

Cool. I know the lexicon has some info on Hogwarts, but JK doesnt give us a detailed description of the place, which makes figuring it out almost imposible. Still, if you do try, good luck. I would be very interested to see what you come up with.

As far as I remember, not only do the stairs move, but so do the paintings, the doors and the rooms. The statues move, the suits or armor move, hell even the corridors and walls probably stretch their cramped mortars once in a while. I think I read somewhere that there are some rooms that change floors sometimes, even as others just move across the same floor.

I think the classrooms and common rooms are the ones that stay still, and probably teh reason why they are classrooms. But the rest is probably fair game. Who knows, maybe its not the corridors that move, but the decorations and the furniture that changes rooms when it wants.

I dunno. It is a school for witches and wizards. Why should it be boring and...normal. Which is something that the movies seem to have forgotten.

To get to the Divination classroom you have to climb a rope later through a trap door. Did they do that, tho? nope.

Well, athe paintings can move from frame to frame. I don't remeber anything about doors and rooms moving. Same thing with the corridors. It would get too confusing trying to navigate the school if the corridor that you used the day before was gone. Also, remeber, that school is far from normal.

Its quite hard to even guess how large Hogwarts is because J.K. Rowling hasn't been clear on the number of students that actually attend. I believe she said three hundred in one interview, and then backpedaled to saying one thousand students.

Well, anyhow, good luck. Even if I'm not totally convinced it can be done past the mapping of the Great Hall and a few classrooms.

It could be that the paintings and suits of armor move when they fancy and make it seem as if the corridors move. But I do know about the doors moving or disappearing, sometimes disguising themselves as a wall or something else. I know that there have been mentions by JK that some rooms move and what not, since that the way she explained some inconsistencies in the location of some things. And yes, I know that the school is far from normal, which is the whole point.

Ravenclaw came up with the floor plan for the school, and the enchantment for it, so they have to be somewhat ingenious.

Stuff like that happens when people type too fast. Get over it DGD. It's not like they're going to start typing whole posts in 1337 or AOL. THAT would be something to complain about.

lol, yes? Its a cool idea, since the inside of the castle hasnt been mapped out all that well. They make it too..regular, I suppose. Its an idea Ive had for some time, you know, actually designing Hogwarts, maybe even do a 3D model of it, but I havent had the time. It would be a nice challenge tho, so I still keep it in mind. If you still want to do it, I say go for it.
