Jase Barrows: Architectural Design I
Project 01: Fibonacci Cube
In this project we had to make a Fibonacci Spiral as shown to the left. We were exploring the precision it requires to be an architect. We started by making the boxes as layout lines for our spiral. Then, we used a compass to connect the corners of each box and eventually formed the spiral.
Drawings and Model
Whilst creating 3 different ideas for a three plane drawing I decided on these two as my alternate designs and went with my first choice to build the Fibonacci cube. All three designs offer elevation and shade, the two main requirements for a house in the swamp. The first choice I chose to pursue provided the best elevation, shade, and space.
In my final Fibonnaci drawing I drew out how my final cube would look when fully assembled. I colored the original 3 planes yellow to show what I started with when building my model. Whilst constructing my model I used cardboard, basswood, hot glue, and paint.
