Project 01: Fibonacci Spiral
For this project we learned about the golden section that helped us create this fibonacci spiral. The golden section or ratio can be described in simplest terms by: the addition of two numbers creating the next digit in line. The start of those numbers is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21; these numbers create a perfect ratio allowing for the fibonnaci spiral to be created.
Drawings and Model
With this project one of the starting models we had was a 3 piece model, this picture demonstrates various views of the three plane model. As it is shown in the drawing the model interlocks with each other which holds is up. Later we used this model of our base for the more complex model.
For this project our goal was to create a model out of cardboard pieces and we were limited to two 8x8 squares that were then cut into a 5x8, 3x2, and 5x3 which was our input from our fibonacci spiral knowledge. We had and additional 8x8 square that could serve as our base, we also had the advantage to use wooden sticks to create a more defined piece. We glued this piece together and some pieces were connected by sliding cardboard pieces with themselves. The design I chose is more of a geometric piece that in the inside it has built in areas in which could be used as tables or something ore than a form of dividing rooms. I allowed for the first two floors to have a hallway that would split up this building creating more than just one room area. There is one piece of cardboard that sticks out and this was done on purpose, this building is a community building and that piece can be used as place to add a name to the building or a plant wall. The drawing of the model was purposely drawn on that view since I thought it was one of the most interesting and defined areas of my model and it was a good way to show most of the interesting areas. The planes colored are the first three planes I begun with.
