GOTHIC WINDOWS The Gothic window from the 13th-14th centuries follows a clear geometric logic. However, behind it are more complex geometric orders and relationships. This project focused on extracting the logics behind a particular Gothic window. These logics are transformed and used to create a new logic, exploring the densities and sparse areas of a windowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s geometry.

COLUMN ORDERS This project focused on the reconstructing of a column with two diffierent modling softwares. One was through â&#x20AC;&#x153;Euclideanâ&#x20AC;? regimes, and the second with Calculus-based regimes. The two kinds of approaches balance one another and are each suited for different kinds of modeling tasks. Through the exploration of 1-degree and 2-degree curvature, classical column orders are studied and analyzed.

ITERATIVE PROFILES This project focused on iterative transformations from the previous column. Elements extracted from the previous column include the underlying logic of itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s geometry - specifically the curves in plan and section. These curves are lofted, swept, and booleaned together in the Rhinocerous program to create various object with similar underlying DNA Exercise 02: Part 2B 3D Column Fictions: Extrusion Exercise Part 2B Jacob02: Baller 3D Column Fictions: Extrusion Jacob Baller ARC182: Representation II Building Facts / Building Fictions ARC182: Representation II Building Facts / Building Fictions

CONSTRUCTION PROCESS

This project focused on the creation of 2-dimensional drawings that describe how the iterative transformations were made. These orthographic projections combined with annotations aim to represent the steps of construction.

ANALYTICAL DRAWINGS This project analyzed the logics and systems of an object created previously. These drawings unpack the logics and systems and clearly communicate different stories.

There is an additional focus on annotation, using text, arrows, dashed lines etc. The four drawings demonstrate the ways in which the object was modeled.

METHODS OF 3D FABRICATION This project explored the ways of 3D fabrication. There are different choices of material, scale, and fabrication methods that we make about physical modeling. In particular, there are three main focuses: unrolled surface, layered contour, and eggcrate.

ROOF FIELDS This project explored 3D roof fields by the combination of common roof types and roof typologies. These roof fields are then manipulated to create different field types. These varying fields are shown through contours.

SPATIAL MATRIX Continuing the 3D fields, roof types are constructed through framing elements. Three different linear spatial matrices are derived from intrinsic linework, external linework, and linework as a volume.

MICRO-ARTICULATION Taking the previous fictional roof fields, greater articulation is explored on individual surfaces. Individual panels are created to place onto the surfaces of the roofs. A shingle system is created and manipulated further to be customized. A drawing is designed to communicate the different scales of panals.
