PRECEDENT As I like to achieve the shadow effect to create a pattern on the wall and any surface, I thought it is a good idea to work through the paneling structure. By this mean, the panels which count as a entrance for the light, will make the shadow in the shape of the pattern it is cut off.

Eco-Valley in Tianjin Eco-city; Users will be encouraged to take advantage of the city’s light rail system to navigate the differing sections. I liked the importance of use of light in this project, especially in the Eco-valley where the light panels are emerged from the natural growth of the structure

Capitol Building, Washington DC; There are huge windows with light streaming in which the sunlight made patterns on the walls

Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light. Le Corbusier


PRECEDENT An ice latticework effect scatters across the facade, with allusions to both traditional Islamic architecture and iconic symbols from other faiths, such as the Jewish Star of David. This intricate detail can also be noted from the interior renderings, as light rushes to enter the building during the day and floods out as night falls.

Bowoos bionic Research pavilion; is faceted with a distinctive pattern of cutouts allowing light to dance through the pavilion.

THROUGH THE READINGS‌

According to Kandisky, firs t the object s truc ture should be simplified from its complexion by using some simple geometrical shapes such as lines and curves. This method can help us to identify the forces among the elements of the structure, which can lead us to the second stage. In second s tage, forces, clear and concealed construction in structure will be modified and at as the last part we will be able to simplify the structure to the freest abs trac t way of illustration . This stage is normally called translation . I also tried to unders tand the role of the elements inside my pattern by simplifying i t and then study the principles of design such a balance, movement and symmetry in my chosen pattern.

According to Bill’s article, mos t of the natural patterns that we observe in nature are organized arrays of elements arise spontaneously from the interac tions between their component parts. I n this regard, my pattern can be recognized as a kind of computation performed by the interac tions of physical particles. I t is organized in a regular rigid and consists of unbalanced rhombuses while following a triangulation sys tem as a general rule, which we can call it, lattice. As a whole pattern it is completely symmetric and balanced. I n accordance to what Bill has mentioned in his article, there is no universal theory of pattern formation in nature, bu t we are able to indentify many common principles among the natural patterns such as certain basic forms ( triangles, hexagons, strips,‌). The most recognizable feature that I stimulate to work on, my element had its own rigid boundary and shape and so I tried to pick one of the elements and change its shape to a more 3 dimensional objec t rather than using it as a relief. By doing this, I achieved a new element with new features, which can show its volume better and create different type of shadow just by changing the angles of the sides.


DOCUMENTAION OF THE PROCESS

This is my base element as shown in the drawing and picture. I tried to use scaling, changing the angles and moving them to emerge a from out of my pattern. What I achieved after deformation was quite interesting, as it create different types of shadows.

PERFORMING ART CENTER, NEW YORK HIGH LINE This is a project done by Sofia Lapina & Sara Moomsaz, which I found very interesting and thoughtful to follow. This piece of architecture is designed as a performing art center for New York High line project; it is holding two main amphitheaters and one ou tdoor theater. The purpose of the design of this building is to circulate people in the space vertically and create many different experiences throughout an amazing void space. The exterior crystal articulation was designed in a way that corresponds to its interior faรงade, which not only graces the building in some areas, bu t also at some moments ac t as an aperture to introduce light to the interior spaces. Also when those voids get large enough, it can be used as an area to hold programs such as rehearsal spaces or music stations. Similar to my base element, the exterior of the building is covered by deformed parts of a diamond by changing the scales and angles.
