C ONT E NT :

2018 - Bachelor of Design (Architecture)

I am motivated by the study of experience within a space, and the interdependent relationship between people and place.

MODULE 1 Diagramming Design Precedent

Through a multifaceted analysis of experience, through lenses of thresholds of circulation, surface, and solid and void, I have been exposed to a new way of designing; one using generative, parametric processes.

I came into this architectural degree not viewing ‘designing’ as physical output focused. Rather, I designed with the intention of creating experience, a thought I have carried through my studies. This is emphasised through my final pavilion design, with a strong focus on context, and how it can both generate form and inform experience. I have discovered an unlikely connection to this idea and the introduced software, where the workflow is generative and not centered upon a physical output. My initial ambivalent attitude towards digital design, as often one becomes disorientated in the world of parametric tools, has certainly transformed into an appreciation of its generative capabilities. I am continually endeavouring to improve my three-dimensional representation skills, and have refined the visual representation of ideas after each module. I look forward to implementing a new way of thinking in future studios.

DIAGRAMMING DESIGN PRECEDENTS


SUMMER SERPENTINE PAVILION (2016) LEIBINGER Leibinger’s Summer Serpentine Pavilion (2016) revolves around looping geometry, which informs the overall design through creating shadow, inviting the viewer to partake in an organic circulation path which mirrors the fluidity of the forms, and the choice of material in plywood and timber, which reinforces the warmth of the coils.

THRESHOLDS

I reinforced the undulating nature of the C-shaped bands encouraging a closed loop by the viewer, and included one entry point dictated by a path.

Thresholds can be unmoving, due to enclosure within the C-shaped bands, or temporal, influenced by the secondary solid’s shadows casting a curving, fluid influence on the site.

SURFACE AND WAFFLE


m

Seamless transition between 4 modules through implementing PtMorphList. Adjusting Distance of Contour Lines ensures fins correlate with intersecting modules, allowing for ease of construction and clear view from cutouts

Regular Cutouts ensure consistent air circulation and sense of permeability between interior and exterior.

Alignment of prisms creates larger form which overrides standard 5 x 5 grid

Fracturing of triangular prism into triads creates strong sense of horizontality, encouraging complete circulation, and possibility for appropriation through seating, stepping, etc.

SURFACE AND WAFFLE

Module 2A revolved around the parametric modelling of two surfaces, and their actualisation 60mmin a paper model. The relationship between

quadrangular forms and curvature was explored in Grasshopper and Rhinoceros, and through this the diversity of affordances provided.

DESIGN MATRIX The panelling matrix explores the tension between quadrangular forms and curvature. The final result was extracted from 3.1, due to its strong horizontal focus, constructible surface, and alternating modules, leading to a surface with varied affordances.

Use PtSrfDomNum to create 5 x 5 grid on surface, use PtOffsetGrid and PtCrvAtts to offset points

Use Item and Divide to adjust vertices, Ln to join

PtMorph3DList translates modules to surface using 2 grids, DeBrep of modules and BoundingBox.

Create a box, then extract edges using DeBrep

SURFACE

Use CullIndex to clean fins, ensuring that edges do not coincide with edges of panels

Use Contour to construct fins, DeBrep of box to source points. Adjust Distance to 30 so waffle aligns with faces

WAFFLE

ReMap PtOffsetGrid using Domains to increase control of module output

Modules are meshed after DeBrep to ensure no collisions with rectangular faces

Explode Tree contour data then Trim to create final waffle

Orient waffle on XY plane using a Rectangular Grid, preparing to laser cut.

SOLID AND VOID


Multifaceted nature of form lends itself to varied light and shadow interplay that is temporal

Gradation in form results in areas in distinct sun and shadow

Larger, more expansive space allowing appropriation for shelter and feeling of enclosure

Creation of nestled pockets through scaled forms, allowing for privacy and reflection.

Rotation of geometry creates inbuilt affordances encouraging rest.

SOLID AND VOID Module 2B focused on multiple levels of manipulation based on one control point. The possibility for thresholds, entry, and circulation to be

dictated by a single point was promising, as well as the opportunity to track subtle transformations or distortions as a user occupying space.

QUEEN VICTORIA PAVILION


A soundscape of Queen Victoria Gardens provided a means of generating a pavilion intrinsically linked with site. I aimed to explore the dynamism and movement of sound through transforming this input into informa-

SOUNDSCAPE ation. I mused upon the notion of the stopping problem postulated by Greg Lynn, and through generative design, a tram sound became the source of information. The sound-wave is isolated above. M O D UL E 3 Q u een V i c tori a Pav i l i on

The structure is created with a site-specific sound moment (tram), which generates a grid of points that are then meshed

White, matt, anodised aluminium panels are triangulated and welded at creases to form the structure

Concentrated edges are subtlety sunken into the landscape, transferring loads to the ground and providing stability

Circulation paths mediated by two paths in garden

Light relationship between shelter and ground, creating a dynamism and energy, relating to the moving nature of sound

Terraced levels are orientated to capture morning sun and afternoon shade, season specific for the summertime

Tilted, triangulated concrete slabs mirror the sharpness of the pavilion, sunken into the landscape

ROOF SECTION 1:30 Changing height of the ceiling leads to sound scattering, maximising the acoustic efficiency of the space

Interior ceiling reflects energy and form of a sound-wave

Initial spatial threshold dictated by material transition from grass to concrete As one moves further below ground level, the general feeling of enclosure increases Sunken landscape minimises effect of wind for performers

The changing nature of the soundscape resulted in a multitude of iterations. Certain ‘moments’ were utilised as controls, then the number of

points were varied. Designs were chosen due to their ability to pro3.5 vide shelter, and evoke a certain lightness, dynamism, and energy. M O D UL E 3 Q u een V i c tori a Pav i l i on
