09s2 Designing Environments PRESENTING + COMMUNICATING IDEAS : WAITING PLACE


BASED ON CONCEPT DIAGRAMS

• Began with concept diagrams as an inspirational starting point. • (time) + (space) combined…using satay sticks of different levels to imitate trees.

time

• I wanted to create a place where the jilted lover could wander through and reminisce but not stay around.

The idea initiated from my brainstorm idea of a “SCREAMBOX”.

--> trying to create a secluded yet open space.

• I started with a box shape, but felt that this made the space feel too enclosed, so I punctured some holes through the walls to make the internal space feel more open. However, this still made the space seem like a tunnel and much too secluded, so I played around with the net shape of the original box and decided to keep it open, but with a sort of roof-like extrusion to imply an enclosed space. • The original design included 4 box nets, however after reviewing the design after a few days, I felt that this made the design to cluttered, and removed one of the boxes to improve clarity.
