Project 01: Fibonacci Cube
This project is built off of two things, the Fibonacci Cube, and an element. The Fibonacci Cube uses different sized rectangles to make up a building. We had to use those shapes to make a building that also simulates an element. The project consists on models and drawings that show our Ideas about this project. We then presented our project to real architects to see their opinions of our work.
I chose earth as my element because most buildings are made out of materials found naturally in the earth. Almost every modern building has a frame made out of metal, and metal is found in caves, so I decided to base my project on a cave. I wanted my model to simulate stalagmites and stalactites, and other recognizable parts of a cave.
Drawings and Model
The main thing I wanted to do with my model was to integrate recognizable parts of a cave. The raised part is supported by vertical planes that are like stalagmites and stalactites, portruding from the ground and ceiling. The space at the bottom simulates parts of a cave where you would have to crawl under, bringing yourself closer to the earth.
