IceFirst Breaker Iteration

Having never taken an architecture class before, I decided to start off with designing something simple. My skills and knowledge of building an actual model were (and still are) limited. With two days to complete the first iteration, I had to scramble for materials. Cardboard, glitter, and glue were really the only useable materials I could find lying around my apartment.

I derived my inspiration from two sources: the Louvre Museum in Paris and glass terrariums. I enjoy the simplistic design of prism-like shapes because they invite you to look inside the object. However, with only possessing cardboard, I had to find a way to allow the viewer to see inside my design. Instead of building a closed prism, I chose to leave out faces to bring perspective and asymmetry to my design. It was not until my second iteration that I used different materials to better achieve what my design had intended to do.
