Reading: Zeara Polo, A. 2010. Between Ideas and Matters.
According to Zeara-Polo, the diagram does not play a representational role in the design process but provides an organisational and can have a performative quality depending on how it is deployed. Explain how Diagram is different from Signs and Symbols?
With refence to Zeara Polo’s reading ‘Between Ideas and Matters’, “diagrams have been a key subject of architectural discourse” since the mid 1990s. the ability or property of a form to express the qualities of a dynamic object in the form of a sign is known as an icon, the icon isa a represntation of functions, qualirites and objects properties, but the physical appearance of the icon has no inherent relationship to the content. Conversley, a symbol takes upon the attributes of the dynamic objects and has an arbitrary link to form and function. In stark contrast to both signs and symbols, a diagram is a tool that has the capability to spatially describe performances and relationships in correlation with temporal frames. “The diagram relates to processes that may occur in three-dimensional space”.

Extruding the planar surfaces created via tracing the plan, to create the concrete step seating. Allen, Katherine. 2018. Carme PinĂłsâ€™ Designed 2018 Mpavilion Opens In Melbourne. Image. https://www.archdaily.com/903355/carme-pinos-designed-2018-mpavilion-opens-in-melbourne/5bb79042f197cc280e000224carme-pinos-designed-2018-mpavilion-opens-in-melbourne-photo. The M Pavilion designed by Carme Pinos was a combination of simplistic square and rectangular forms that come together to create an intricate design. To Model this pavilion I overlayed serveral plans and elecvations on the c plane and world axis of rino and traced the subsequent lines. Once traced i converted the lines in to planar surfaces and began extruding them to the correct heights obtained by measuring elevations and plans.
Reading: Hertzberger H. 2005. The in-between and The Habitable Space Between Things, from Lessons for Students in Architecture. Herzberger discusses how design should not be extreme in its functionality. Use your precedent study to explain how the pavilion allows for an appropriation of use.
The term appropriate is simply defined as “to take for ones own use” (Dictionary.com). In the instance of Carme Pinos’ M Pavillion 2018, the pavilion allows for appropriation of use throught he implementation of concrete step seating. Although, shown through Hertzberger’s reading, an individuals appropriation of a physical aspect is dependent on their subjective interpretation of an object/forms function, M Pavilion aims to provide both seating and steps for the individuals use and allows for their own appropriation of use. By designing the pavilion in such a way Carme Pinos allows for a fluid and flexibile function to most aspects of the pavilion and thus accommodates appropriation and habitation of space.
Insert title of your Isometric here. This Make 2D of my scale model of Carme Pinosâ€™ M Pavilion is a South East isometric perspective, this perspective view choice was made in order to capture the maximum amount of detail, whilst simultaneously showing the areas of appropriation and habitable spaces. Throughout the modelling process the executive designer decision was made to model the appropriate ammount of detail in terms of what would be shown in the perspective. Whilst this remains true, i aimed to provide maximum detail in the areas that are shown such as the roofs main frame which can be seen through the wooden cladding. Furthermore, due to the South East orientation of the perspective I felt it was important to show the maintainence area cut into the side of the topography. With the modelling i also added emphasis through the use of linewight, especially when adding further emphasis to the habitable seating areas.
To consider the circulation of this space, it was first necessary to examine the function and purpose of the space, which subsequently influenced the permeability and thresholds. The pavilion has three primary functions, these functions are as follows: Shelter, habitation (seating)and influenced movement. Through the examination of the primary functions of the space it became evidenbt that the circulation was rerlated to the entry into the pavilion and the movemnt from point to point within, as well as the movemnt to the main seating programme. The permeability threshold and connectivity influenced this movement through the seating and positioning of seemingly transparent walls, therefore it was found that the main threshold was established through the structures form and spatial prowess.
