Anish Kapoor is a British sculptor with a rich history. This is reflected in his works, specifically through the use of colours and materials used. The elements of Kapoor’s work I wanted to focus on in my work is his use of rich colours and the dome shape. The shape creates a mystery, for in certain angles one does not know whether it ends or that it is a dome shape. An integral aspect to Kapoor’s work I found in my research were the links to nature and math. So I decided to create 5 dome like sculptures that are naturally produced, showing a timeline of evolution to the final sculpture made of metal to represent the future.

P A R A D I S E Paradise is a very vast and subjective concept. By stemming my research from the romanticist poet, John Keats, I was able to enhance my personal grasp on paradise; an escape back to nature. This resulted in the idea of literally transcending nature to create an almost suspended reality. Terrariums then added another layer onto my research. They frame and encapsulate moss and minute plants in a jar or spherical vase, ultimately playing on scale as you can hold what appears to be a miniature rainforest in your hands. By returning to the concept of paradise and finding that the Greek ‘paradeisos’ is translated to a ‘royal (enclosed) park’, it allowed me to articulate these concepts into an architectural form. I experimented with the idea of attaching hollowed spheres to each other in a similar way to molecules, creating a structure that’s obviously manufactured but maintains an organic vibe and aesthetic to it. This then developed into material exploration for the construction of the spheres and an overall skin for the structure to conceal the exterior and add a layer of mystery and uniformity in regards to the overall form. Ultimately, the research and process resulted in an organic architectural form that captures the essence of a paradisiacal environment, or an enclosed park featuring the aspects of a rainforest. In reflection, the overall way in which I have captured my notion of paradise and represented it in an architectural form has been successful, especially in the process models and final model. The drawings, although introducing a whimsical aspect I was enthralled by during my research of Le Petit Prince (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry) and the artists Pip and Pop, were a learning curve and the most difficult complete. In summary, my design highlights that “the poetry of the earth is never dead”, for it eternalises the beauty and profound qualities of nature within a manmade structure, allowing the human spirit a place of nature in an urban context.
