J O U R N A L W E E K 1 : Architecture as a Discourse

“We should work for simple, good, undecorated things, but things which are in harmony with the human being and organically suited to the little man in the street.� Alvar Aalto


JOURNAL WEEK 1

PERSONAL PROJECT I have taken virtual environment as one of my environment course. This subject got me to start developing ideas through 3D computer modelling. First I had to make a muckup model with clay and bringing that clay model photos to Google SketchUp to develop into 3D model. This process was very interesting for me, how physical model can be reformed in complex 3D modelling, Furthermore made into real size physical model with paper by unfolding 3D model. This was my first experience on computational design. My concept of the design was “fluid wind� where I have gained this idea from combining both movement of water and wind. Then I used cloth to put over that ribs that I have created a form which i was satisfied with. Then this from became my initial design of the whole project, which i developed this into physical clay model then sketchup model, which then became actual head piece that can be worn.

The Seed Cathedral, 2010 Heatherwick Studio

The Seed Cathedral project was developed by Heatherwick Studio, who does really amazing architectural projects, their simple idea which develops into a form or structure is very innovative. Seed Cathedral was a project which attempts to showcase the natural roots of the United Kingdom. Underlying intension of this Pavilion is to advertise the region. Since the region was famous for collection of different seeds of trees and flowers. He has decided to use seeds as fundamental object of this project, to integrate nature in to city. They have also decide locate a seed inside the rod – tip of it. Heatherwick Studio was interested in the idea of keeping something inside see through material. It gives ‘precious’ feeling towards object that is trapped within the object (like gem-stone from Jurassic Park). Pavilion is covered by 60 thousand acrylic rods which can be moveable through wind. Also each one of the rods has optics at the tip of the rod which brings artificial light in to the centre of the box, then the light is released at night. Through 3d modelling computation technology they were able to achieve an accurate result of precision in drilling a hole through the box

This building is called Rotating Tower: it was name as “Rotating� tower because every single floor would be capable of rotating around a central axis, it will be continually in motion. it also prvide residents choose the views that they want to see. apparently the architect has said this building is highly resistive to earthquake due to each floor rotating independently. interestingly independent movements of each floor could create many different ways to look at this building, sometimes it would look unorganised, other times it turns into flowing sculture looking structure. this building is also very sustainable that, it will be powered entirely by sun and wind energy.
