Paola Lopez: Architectural Design I
Project 01: Fibonacci Cube
This project was based on the Fibonacci Sequence in which we had to choose an element and incorporate the element into our design. Basing this sequence help us understand in how we can corporate it into architecture. It challenged us and made us think outside of the box and be creative with it but also make a connection with our element.
I had chosen air as my element to explore and make my research about. I chose air because the element stood out to me the most out of the rest. In a way I found it challenging to incorporate it and make it into a solid figure because it's Natural form is a gas. My perception of air was to have very open space, a lot of room for air to flow around and high ceilings. These are examples that stood out to me and represented air the most.
Drawings and Model
3-Plane Model drawing
My inspiration for my three plan model was a skyscraper. I wanted to have the biggest plane to be vertical and as well with the other planes to really show off air because that’s what I really thought that represented and showed off air. I continued the vertical pattern and as well put the second biggest plan on top to be the eye catcher and keeps a person staring up in which air is naturally located, up in the sky.
Leading to the final model I had kept my three plane model in the middle and built around it with the basset wood and put the other planes around the edge to show off the three plane and its height. I also put in two planes intersecting the original plane because my view and my outside thinking were two balconies that led you outside, where you can sit and enjoy the fresh air. I wanted my building to be comforting and a lot of places to go and as well not too cramped up. I had a lot of floating planes because air is a gas and its not solid and I wanted to incorporate that in.
