D105 - SPRING 2017
Through the exploration of foam, casting, or other materials, we were tasked with creating a mass-based, inhabitable structure, that embodied the qualities of stereotomic architecture. I was driven by a jagged crystal-like form, which then was evolved and simplified into its final rendering.
INITIAL FOAM STUDIES
The evolution of my form was driven by an abstract form of thinking. In getting to the final form, I considered aspects such as inhabitability in terms of light, as well as being intentional with each placement of a piece.
I was limited by the final form itself in terms of casting, thus initiated my move to wood. The final model sits in an urban setting, and plays with focusing light from the sky.
