Mapping a form cube For my first project I have decided to relate my concept based on something scientific which can also relate to Architecture, I have decided to research on biological architecture. Biological Architecture is a set of rules that determine which symmetry or quality of electric field allows all biologic structures to thrive. The premise behind biologic architecture is that all life responds well to design that is in accordance with nature and avoids harmful materials and sharp corners which bleed capacitive charge. The concept of Biological Architecture was pioneered by Dan Winter. He has been teaching internationally the scientific principles behind Feng Shui for many years. With a background in Electrical Engineering, Systems Analysis, Psychophysiology, he is credited in the literature for inventing and pioneering the â€œHeart Coherenceâ€?.
For my project I decided to create something alive which will show the connection between biological architecture. I have planned to design something which people can discover new ways to interact with plant, who loves architecture. My mission is to intergrade these discipline into a new paradigm that changes the way we live and interact with nature. I believe that interacting with plants will improve our lives. As you can see I have added grass seeds and live sphagnum moss which absorbs water.
A live/work space for Pina Bausch Pina Bausch - a German performer of modern dance, choreographer, dance teacher and ballet director who has gained influence since the 1970s in the field of modern dance due to her unique style, blend of movement, sound, and prominent stage sets.
“I once said, “I’m not interested in how people move but what moves them.” This sentence has been quoted many times – it is still true up to the present day” I think as she looked around and saw the world was less and less fun, she found it more important to show beauty.
Because Pina Bausch was a dancer I decided to focus on rhythm which also relates to architecture and I started to research on frozen architecture Music is liquid architecture; Architecture is frozen music by German writer Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe. Rhythm in architectural composition is repetition of certain patterns at regular interval such as columns fixed at a fixed intervalExperiencing architecture by Steen Eiler Rasmussen To experience architecture demands time; it also demands work- through mental not physical work. The person who hears music or watches dancing does not physically work himself but in perceiving the performance he experiences the rhythm of it as though it were in his own body.
What is Rhythm in space? Repetition
What is spiral? Definition: Winding in a continuous and gradually widening (or tightening) curve, either around a central point on a flat plane or about an axis so as to form a cone.
Progression Transition Contrast Radiation: radiation is another type of rhythm which is closed related to radial balance. This type of rhythm can give a circular radiation feeling like spiral.
Spiral mathematical formula Fibonacci spiral
The Fibonacci spiral: an approximation of the golden spiral created by drawing circular arcs connecting the opposite corners of squares in the Fibonacci tilling: this one used squares of sizes 1,1,2,3,8,13,21,34.
Musical scales are related to Fibonacci numbers

Notes in the scale of music are based on natural harmonics that are created by ratios of frequencies. Ratios found in the first seven numbers of the Fibonacci series ( 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 ) are related to key frequencies of musical notes.

House of vans Our project â€œHouse of Vansâ€? is about skateboard we have been researched about skateboarders and made series of conceptual sketch. I made sketch models by observing skate parks videos of skateboarding and grounds on which skateboarders practice.
Skateboarding probably means something different to just about everybody. There are many different types of skateboarding of course, behind all these various reasons people skate. Is it about freedom, creativity, athleticism? Or maybe itâ€™s more about breaking rules and taking risks one thing for sure skateboarding is about all of these things and more
I have chosen 4 models to make them with different material and these are the sketches of the models.
Rhythm of everyday life Rhythm of everyday fall into two categories: Cyclical and linear rhythm. a cyclical rhythm is a rhythm which is repeated in time, such as night following day. Linear rhythm is a rhythm which is a repeated in space, such as walking. The difference between the two is that cyclical rhythm are rhythms of events, where as linear rhythm are rhythm of action.
An example of linear (spatial) rhythm can be found in skateboarding. As skateboarders pump their feet on the pavement to accelerate past slower pedestrian. At the same time as experiencing accelerated spatial rhythm, skateboarders also create and participate in cyclical rhythm
