DIGITAL MEDIA II Spring 2019 Carnegie Mellon University SoA Professor Eddy Man Kim

FINAL PROJECT: CHAPEL SITE RENDER For our final assignment, we were to use the digital chapel models we created in Studio: Foundation II and create a render view of our chapel in the site. The goal of the digital render was to convey a clear image of how the site interacts with the chapel and vice versa.

SPATIAL THINKING To ensure a dynamic relationship between site and structure, sequence and proportion are incredibly important for my project. The placement of specific apertures allows light to create an ethereal sequence, alongside the literal compression and expansion of the ceiling. A presence of architecture is augmented not only by the sequence of entry, but particularly by the exterior spatial alignments between the site and the surrounding environment; especially evident in the great expansion one experiences before being re-oriented by another sequence of compression and release.

SPATIAL THINKING (CONT.) For the final phase of the project, we were to explore the convention of our designs further through rendered interior perspectives and Choisy diagrams. These different methods allowed us to convey a 3 dimensional form through a 2 dimensional medium; allowing the viewer a better understanding of what it is like to experience the space.

The Monumental The new architecture instead of being monumental, is more like an architecture of transformation, of lightness and of transparency. It has made the monumental idea independent of “large” and “small; it has shown that everything exists by relationship.

Process of Lamp Design

Architecture As a Synthesis of the New Plastic Construction Each plane participates in the peripheral space and the construction can be understood more as a tension phenomenon, than as a plane-proportion phenomenon.

MANIFESTO & INTERPRETATION Theo van Doesburg’s critical analysis on Elementarism provides a clear vocabulary in the discourse of “the new architecture”. He specifically references elements of spatial relationships through “Symmetry and Repetition”, and “Architecture As a Synthesis of the New Plastic Construction”. The role of color and materiality is expressed in “The Monumental” and “Color”. Using “Symmetry and Repetition”, I deduced critical relationships between the three planar objects from Doesburg’s contra-composition. These objects were then iterated through a system based on “Architecture As a Synthesis of the New Plastic Construction”; specifically, the effect of a tension-relationship and a proportional one. Thus, allowing me to use said projection to inform my design and ultimately the placement of the acrylic pieces.

Symmetry and Repetition The new architecture has suppressed the monotonous repetition and has destroyed the equality of two halves: symmetry. Instead of symmetry the new architecture proposes: A balanced relationship of unequal parts...The unity of these parts is accomplished by their inequality and not by their equality.

MANIFESTO & INTERPRETATION (CONT.) Following the initial iteration, the joint connections were tested through chipboard, wood, and other material means. For the final phase of our design, we produced a critical form based on an excerpt from Theo van Doesburg’s manifesto “De Stijl”.
