Jonathan Ramos: Architectural Design I
Project 01: Fibonacci Cube
This project revolved around using the Fibonacci Sequence and using it to create a series of proportional planes. Using the 3 planes we were tasked with making three architectural Models, suited for a our landscape. Then we choose the Model we thought was best for our landscape. Then we used six more Fibonacci planes and some basswood to make our final model that also had to fit in a 8"x8" cube.
I was assigned The Rainforest biome as my landscape for this project. In my research, I learned about Tropical and Temperate Rainforest. Rain forest have high rainfall all year round it is warm and very humid. The rainforest has various types of vegetation tall trees and flowers. For my project I had to build a model that was lifted of the ground and leave it as open as possible to allow air to flow around the model.
Drawings and Model
Plane Study Drawing
All 3 of my Study models were lifted off the ground to avoid the house getting flooded.The study model that I chose below is colored in blue. The reason that I chose it was because it seemed more stable and I felt like i could do more to it that I could've done to the other two models.
The drawing on the left is the Isometric Drawing for our Final Model of this project. The Drawing shows a corner view of my Final Model.For my final model I used the basswood to define to define spaces and hold some of the planes up. I made the model elevated and made the model open to provide air throughout the house. The drawing on the left was Interior Perspective drawing, it shows the interior of a space in the first floor of the model.
