CRIT DAY

On the of the crits my project wasn't finally finished, I was still in process of developing my final design but I had developed a full research and concept and thats what I proposed to my peerpeerss.

GEOMETRICAL LANDSCAPE 
I’m trying to combine my prime design idea of spheres that I’m still working on developing and making it more complex. But now I’m also looking at sites I want to build it in and who will interact with it. Over the lesson time I developed a series of drawing to develop my design even further and that made me look in tho more designer architect asn sculptors who worked around or where some who related to spheres. One of the sculptor was Ruth Asawa who’s fragile balloon-like artworks made me think about connections between the spheres  made.
The location I choose were mountains i like the idea of my building being interacted with nature. I was introduced to a Giant Causeway a natural phenomena ,interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. Was design the platform and i had few ideas of how to make it one of them was to create a wood platform with three sticks and cover it with fabric then pour plaster over for a snow like effect, another idea was to make a completely wooden base with wood spikes rising through with different level.

To understand the projects brief it was easier for me to firstly do some secondary research to look at what inspired designers and architects.I enjoy working with space and who people and objects occupy it. On this brief softer and bolder forms appear on my mind works of Daniel Arsham who’s sculptures bare white and simple on there own but put in the right settings makes you think of the of so simple and pure form of their structure. I started with doing very sharp and abstract model but it wasn’t what I wanted to explore over this project , from moment is more of a soft, life like crawling  that I wanted to give to my design.
 
I yet don’t know how my final design would look but I want to give it a light bobble like movement the dripping and gliding like effect maybe flying. I want to further work on fast models because it helps me to develop more original ideas. I know I want see it in a natural landscape, bringing futuristic and alien like feeling to the place it will be at. As a function it will serve as a hotel a place where family can enjoy a winter ski holiday and hide in a snow night. 
My secondary research involved a lot of small architecture and space management what I want to explore in my design

Thinking about the purpose of building

SURVIVLE CAPSULE, PSS( Personal Safety System)

 I was thinking a lot about the purpose of the Building  I was designing , it seemed to easy just to put in on site and let it be there. I came across temperate architecture and movable designs, one of the designs I looked at was Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects relax: Wooden Cabin on Wheels. The quote from 'Small Architecture Now' a new book by Kleine Bauten and Philip Jodidio, 'In architecture today, small is big, although the trend is one born out of necessity.’ I would completely agree with that quote, the beauty of architecture is the ability to manipulate the space in a way to satisfy needs of the people, and now with the overpopulation problem the world is facing today Tiny Architecture is one of the solutions that humanity created. “When the money disappears more small structures are created,” posits the author, Philip Jodidio. A bonus is that “small buildings often provide architects a degree of freedom that cannot be obtained in gigantic public or corporate projects”.

 
When thinking about Tiny Architecture mostly Japan comes to my mind and their problem with overpopulation of elders and low birthrate. The rough population density of the Tokyo area comes to 6,224.66 people living per square kilometre. That’s why architects study limited space and optimal usage of it. Another problem that Japanese architects and engineers are finding solutions for are natural disasters , such as tsunamis and earthquakes. that’s when I came across survival capsules. The Tsunami Survival Capsule is designed to save lives during a Tsunami event. It is designed to analysis for load cases such as initial Tsunami impact, large debris impact, sharp object penetration and many more. The capsule resides on a stand beside the residence covered by a shroud, coloured to suit the environment. A bright colour is used to aid recovery. The function of the capsule is to ride the Tsunami, rather than run from it. 
I plan to combine the primal purpose of the capsule in my design so it can become a safe hotel in case of tsunami.
