Project 01: John Hejduk City and Model
Our first project was on an architect named John Hejduk. We looked specifically at a city that he made with lots of styles and functions to all of his buildings. I focused on a glaziers house and workplace made entirely of glass. I sketched out what I originally had on vellum (yellow paper picture) and then finished planning with the elevations. After that, I built the model out of spray painted wood and hot glue. Hejduk's roof design was a definitely out of the box and it was challenging to try and cut the pieces to the right sizes.
Project 02: DMZ City Planning and Building
The DMZ city has taken most of the school year and it's going to take a lot more work to figure out the rest of what we need to do. I made three different designs based on the curve that's most common in Korean architecture. My first design had a double curved roof and has some flexibility to be a one story building or a multiple story building. It was meant to be a house, small office building, or a shop. My second design has a curve on the bottom of the building, creating that open space for doors and windows. I stacked multiple stories together to create the bottom picture to create the multiple S's. My third design put the curve on the sides of a hexagon and was created as a multi story office building. There will be multiple floors with windows along the sides.
