L6 A&ID- Design Brief: Science Museum GalleryMillennium Space Notes & Planning:
SECONDARY SOURCES OF MOVEMENT& FLOW
PRIMARY SOURCES OF MOVEMENT& FLOW
For Movement and Flow I have done drawings of water, bubbles, puddles etc, the puddles represent movement as well as flow as it shows the direction the waves are moving in, in the water. Bubbles are represented to show these ideas too; experimenting with drawings of movement and flow helps me create a better understanding towards my techniques and adjustments of my work, as it allows me to progress to my next stage of developing my work as well as progressing with my skills for the task too. I have also interpreted different textures such as: shading, line width and opacity to add depth and development to my work.
PLAN, ELEVATION AND PERSPECTIVE DRAWINGS
Here I have developed an understanding of plan and elevation drawings for gallery layouts. This has helped me create a sense of knowledge for space and the objects surrounding it, and taking place in the building. These drawings have helped me to combine layout, space, area and other techniques into one picture. I have drawn two designs of gallery layouts (plan and elevation) to understand the interior and exterior space combined. I have used different techniques: line width to show the weight of the lines, (some thick, some small) â€“these make the drawings stand out more and create a look that is more professional and unique. Thick and thin lines create the outline of a drawing /sketch and can be improved quickly and effectively, by emphasising a proportion of the outline with the thick lines. Further to this, adding thin and thick lines can give the drawing a 3D effect to my work. I have also used a number of shapes to create emphasis in my drawings of what could be used in order to create a gallery layout of both plan and elevation.
I have drawn examples of finding interior structures and how they are developed. I find this shape unique as it has a lot of intertwining shapes put together to define the structure. I have drawn the actual structure, with zooming in on certain parts too. This has enabled me to create an understanding on the shape and patterns for which I can use further in my development. I have also used a range of thick and thin lines to create an emphasis on a three dimensional aspect view. This makes the structure realistic and able to stand out. The images of the structure has enabled me to understand shapes, tone, design and what the outcome of it is. Focusing on different areas, rather than just drawing the structure, has created for me an understanding of development for future preferences and ideas.
I have been focusing on drawing gallery layouts, understanding areas, designs, space and techniques for which could help me understand my final piece. Here I have drawn the centre-image but also drawn certain points of its aspects too to help me create an understanding of the design and what it uses to create a point of success in a gallery. Drawing certain parts of the gallery room, has enabled me to understand certain space, and how it is partitioned into different surroundings, and how and where the objects in the room are placed.
Here I have done the same thing as the previous slide, but instead of drawing the layout of the gallery, I have chosen to draw an object in the gallery. I have chosen to do this so it can emphasise my understanding of layouts and how some designs are portrayed in different ways to create a sense of somewhat enigma and uniqueness in its own way for the piece to stand out. This gives me interpretation of how to layout designs in a gallery. It has also helped by separating sections of the piece to show different shapes, line width and the designs used to create this piece.
For this drawing, I have chose to focus on an empty hallway that leads to gallery rooms. It has given me ideas of designing how to get to the gallery rooms and it also gave me understandings of space too. Many different shapes, materials and and tones are used in this hallway, all of which can help me proceed to the development of my final piece. I have also sectioned off separate parts of the picture to get a clear pathway of the shapes, materials etc.. Of what has been used, and how I could possibly use it for future preferences.
Here, I have drawn another structure in a gallery. This structure gives off the sense of realism and definition due to it being carved out to create the design. I have separated and drawn sections of the image to represent this. In conclusion to this, the structure is also made out of stone, a different material for which I could use. I also find the structure balanced on a wooden plank is very unusual for it to be placed in a museum. This also gives off influences to how I could set my design out, and how it could be shown to the public.
Flight museum research Overhead walkways allow you to get up close to aeroplanes suspended in the air. Examine exhibits from the pioneer days of aviation, including the world's most authentic Antoinette monoplane (1909), Amy Johnson's Gipsy Moth and the Vickers Vimy, which first crossed the Atlantic in 1919. Other extraordinary exhibits include: • Super marine S6B racing seaplane • Hawker P1127, which led to the Harrier jump-jet fighter • A complete slice of a genuine Boeing 747 jumbo jet. There are plenty of interactive things for them to get hands on and enjoy. The flight museum could benefit from more interactive and child-friendly activities throughout the exhibit. The flight museum layout area reflects on the hangar where they are originally to stay put, the gallery uses dark, dim lighting with reflective lights to shine on the models to emphasise the colours of the plane, this could also be considered a bad thing as it cannot show the actual colours or details of the plane, as it is shown to be too dark for colour contrasting. The walking space is also considered to be problematic as a lot of people walk in and out, and also around the models. Some of the models also suffer from poor area planning, as not all models or details can be seen from every angle. The gallery is also very compact with tight spacing, as they have too much storage in the space provided.
DRAWINGS OF MODELS IN FLIGHT GALLERY
SCIENCE MUSEUM â€“ MATHS GALLERY
â€˘ Here I have drawn designs in the mathematic gallery, although I have not been able to create a sense of space and layout in the design strategy, but I have been able to understand the designs of the structures and materials used in order to fulfil this. Drawing the designs has enabled me to task on different shapes and learn their positioning and designs within the structure. The structures are officially known to this day to be the gust of wind overflowing an aeroplane, these structures emit the definition by showing different angles, spaces curves, and the lines within the structure to show where the air goes around the plane. I have used dark shading in my work to represent where the air hits the most in order to surround the rest of the plane. The pictures I took and the drawings I have done show this.
TENSILE STRUCTURE MODELS
For further development, I have done a wired model, surrounded by my own sketches of the drawing. The structure of the wire gives the model an uneven base and surrounding as not all are lines are straight, there are curves as well as angles, and also different directions for which the wire goes in to structure the shape.
For my second structure; I have decided to make it out of tracing paper to develop my ideas on new materials, and a different type of paper. The paper designs are different and unique as they show a very optimistic designing strategy of model making. It helps me understand different options I have, and the designs I could use it for. To the left I have drawn these paper models, to help me create an understanding, this has been done by: think and thick lines, straight and curvy lines, as well as angles and shapes.
Here I have used a different technique, which was plain white A4 paper, which green and yellow lines on. The green lines we had to fold one way and the yellow we had to fold the opposite way in order to create this modelling design shown. It has given me ideas of how to structuralize and make models. It has also enabled to me to focus on a different shape and the designs within and on it. I have drawn sketches of it to abbreviate and understand the unique shape in order to place it further with development on other models.
Again, I have created a paper models in different angles to show its space, and design. I have drawn the paper models to show the development of range within its shapes and forms it can have. The model is based on triangles, but if I was to stack it with the same model over and over again, it would create an structure, eg: a roof, a building, a pavilion etc..
My Final Piece- I have developed from the paper, drawings and wire modelling into a solid rock-form structure. This was made from a condom as the lubrication on it, gives the surface a smooth, shiny, and silky touch/finish. We made this by mixing the mixture together and keeping our hands in one position until it heats up and the mixture can no longer move around in the condom. The condom will then be ripped off and your model is ready. The idea of this is to create an understand of different materials than can be used to create and structuralize a design. Furthermore, I have placed people and trees for further development in order to create a sense of space and how it is and can be used.
SKETCHUP MODEL OF FINAL PIECE
SketchUp Model As Well As: Plans, Elevations, And Inside Design Of Final Piece On SketchUpLastly, I have designed my final piece on SketchUp to create the space and surrounding and to bring my idea of the flight gallery to life. I have added some of its elements such as: engines and planes to create the enigma of the gallery rooms and how it is sectioned off. I have done this to make sure the space used it understood clearly in order to get a full experience from it. I have used many angles as well as many design techniques, on “sketchy edges” for drawing examples, these help abbreviate the drawing and show professionalism to the model as it creates an understanding to different techniques for drawing you could use to understand the design and it’s strategies. Furthermore, I have took screenshots of the inside to include the interior spacing as well as just the exterior. This shows the space to be used for the objects that is to be placed inside the gallery building. I have used many materials on the SketchUp model, which has been shown on my development slides in order to get the outcome I did. I used materials such as: metal, glass, stone, etc too add detail to my work in order to make it realistic. Here I have developed an understanding of plan and elevation drawings for gallery layouts. This has helped me create a sense of knowledge for space and the objects surrounding it and taking place in the building. These drawings have helped me to combine layout, space, area and other techniques into one picture. I have drawn designs of my final pieces' layouts (plan and elevation and how objects could be laid out in the gallery) to understand the interior and exterior space combined. I have used different techniques: line width to show the weight of the lines, (some thick, some small) –these make the drawings stand out more and create a look that is more professional and unique. Thick and thin lines create the outline of my sketches and can be improved quickly and effectively by emphasising a proportion of the outline with the thick lines. Further on I have also used several shapes to create emphasis in my drawings of the designing strategies.
