Precedent Analysis

The top two is the elevation for zaha, and the one down the bottom is the plan for zaha.

I use the elevation and plan image for zaha to building the model in rhino.


Week Two

Week Two


Burnham Pavilion The isometric I choose here is southeast isometric. Because Burnham has two entrance opposite each other, the southeast isometric can show the positional relation. In addition, the top isomatric can show the open space on the roof clearly. I know the general structure and the framework in this pavilion whilst modelling. This temporay pavilion incorporates hidden traces of burnham and bennett’s original 1909 plans to redevelop the city.


Week Two Diagrams

shadow changes


The diagram shows the shadow’s changes in three different time during the day. All the shadow in Zaha。

Insert a brief description of your diagram here.





Appendix Process

The modelling process for burnham pavilion is quite challenged to me. First I set up a soild sphere in rhino then by using boundingbox to change the shape, I try to make it fix the plan of pavilion. Secondary, using split comment to split it into 24 part. Nxet drop the edge of the cut line and change to curved.
