Joshua Clements: Architectural Design I
Project 01: Fibonacci Cube
The element I chose was water and when I chose this element I was a little lost on what to do. I looked up a lot of different uses or examples of water in architecture. From pools and water falls to buildings that shoot out water to mist and cover the building. After the initial though of buildings that actually used water I started to think more like buildings that represented the water itself or an object in the water.
Drawings and Model
Plane Study Drawing
When it was time to do the three plane model I really just thought about a structure floating above the water. I put all the support on one side of the structure so that as you walked out on the farther side of it you'd really get the feeling of floating. As I continued into the next steps of the project I carried the same ideas forward.
Final Cube Drawing
When designing my final cube I continued my idea of floating. This is represented by the plane going the opposite way directly above the original, with no supports between them. I enhanced this idea with the space to lie down. I moved it out over the edge to help the person really experience floating. The floating plane right next to it is used to direct the view of the person who's lying down toward the opposite direction the original plane was focused on.
