In this project I designed a pavilion to help day laborers wait for job offers. To help me make the pavilion I had to first understand what day laborers do. So I investigated and found information to help me on my project. Honestly I did not have a good understanding of what day laborers do so investigating day laborers really helped me understand what space my client would want.
Day Labor Word Selection
Drawings and Models
To start this part of the project I grabbed pieces of cardboard and cut out an 8x8 square. From that square I made three planes that measured 5x8, 3x5, 2x3. I did the same with two other squares, after that I then used the planes to make models that resemble the words I used to describe day labor and also that resemble buildings or furniture, For ambitious I wanted to make a building/statue that reaches high to represent ambitious. For helpful I made a model that could offer shelter or a place to sit. And for flexible I made a model that had many uses such as being an entrance, furniture, or even space for rooms. I ended up picking flexible because I liked how the model I made for it could help me make a pavilion and I also thought flexible was a good and strong word to describe day labor.
After I picked which plane model would be used for the pavilion I cut out two more 8x8 squares with the same principle of how I would cut them. So I used those pieces to make a pavilion for a day laborer that also shows the three words I used to describe day labor. After that I made a drawing of the pavilion which was honestly my favorite part of the project.
