Mac Smith: Architectural Design 1
Project 01: Fibonacci Cube
For this project I was given a landscape or biome. I then had to make a model or structure out of cardboard and small pieces of basswood that could withstand and go well in my landscape. You also had to make drawings along the way of your model in different ways like perspective view. I studied how to make a model or structure according to where it was in the world.
A tundra is a biome with very cold climates that is rocky with many mountains and contains a very little amount of trees. The tundra receives very little rainfall that leads to short growing seasons. There are two types of tundras, which are the arctic and alpine tundra. the arctic tundra is colder and has animals that can live in very cold conditions such as a polar bear. The alpine tundra contains animals found on mountains like mountain goats. The tundra is found in the northern hemisphere.
Drawings and Model
I cut out 3 pieces of 3 different sizes of cardboard and made 3 models accordingly. My landscape was the tundra, so I made my models in a way that would provide protection from the cold. It was difficult to do because of the limitations of materials I was allowed to use. The models I made are made out of cardboard and I cut the cardboard using an x-acto knife.
For my final drawings I made an isometric drawing that is drawn to scale. For my final model I wanted to again make a place that is well protected from the cold of the tundra. That's why I made it very enclosed with cardboard that are walls and basswood that are windows. Then I made my perspective drawing that shows what my model would look like if you were standing on the inside of the front.
