Marcela Corona: Architectural Design I
The first thing we did in this project was our Fibonacci Spiral which gave us a glance of our project. Then we had to do some research on Day Laborers and what they do for our community. Once we had an understanding of what Day Laborers are we then had to find 3 words to describe them and their job, which we then would use later for our models and our final project.
Day Labor Word Selection
A person's regular job and main source of income, typically as contrasted with a more enjoyable occupation or hobby.
A great deal of effort or endurance.
Having made a firm decision and being resolved not to change it.
Drawing and Model
For this project I made three models each representing the words, Daily Job, Hard Work and Determined. The way I started the project with my three plane studies was by thinking of my planes as people to describe my three words. For example, for the word Determined I decided to place the two small planes vertical so that they would be holding the big plane horizontally. This way the two small planes would show two workers that are Determined to hold the big plane. For my final model I choose the plane that represented the word Determined, since I thought it was the one that represented Day Laborers the most.
For my final model we had to grab the one model we chose out of the three words and we had to grab more plane pieces so that we could work around our original model and make a pavilion for the Day Laborers with the other plane pieces. Therefore I made a very office looking building with a sign in the front of it so that all the Contractors know that there are workers available.
