Andreas Jonathan Underlying Systems M. Arch I Portfolio
My path through art and architectural education has been an exploration of underlying systems
Projects: 1.Topo 2.Where is Art? 3.Operable Diag
grams 4.Inlet Walkway 5.Passage House
Each project is paired with an underlying formal or conceptual relationship
Memory/Terrain Title:Topo Year:2013 Course:Intermediate Sculpture
This assignment asked for a welded volumetric structure that would be illuminated from within. I selected contour lines from different places I have lived and overlayed them to form the following object.
Surface/Volume Material:Welded Iron Polyurethane Rice Paper
Topography lines are extracted and overlayed
Light/Memory Material:Welded Iron Polyurethane Rice Paper
A psychogeography that destabilizes â€œwhereâ€? I have been 8 Memory/Terrain
Title:Where is Art? Year:2013 Course:Intermediate Sculpture
This sculpture began as a speculative proposition, intended to be not quite an art object and not quite an architecture.It became a study on material and projection. The realized piece is a work of uncertain boundaries, where exhibition and the object itself work in conjunction.
Steel rod interacts with wire mesh 12 Projection/Expansion
Rigid/Organic Materials:1/4â€? Steel Rods Wire Mesh
Blue Light Projection
Red Light Projection
Light/Shadow 14 Projection/Expansion
Light is projected from two directions.
Mixed Light Projection
A work with uncertain boundaries 16 Projection/Expansion
Title:Operable Diagrams Year:Summer 2013 Course:GSAPP Introduction to Architecture
This project explored the material properties of piano wire, latex, and rockite. Students took part in a derive, observed people, and diagrammed qualities of their movement. Translating that information through different materials changed the initalinputs and created room for new programs.
Mapping/Diagramming Materials: Piano Wire
Travel routes are translated into a three-dimensional diagram
Articulating surface with latex reveals inherent voids.
Skin/Surface Materials: Piano Wire Latex
Volume/Form Materials: Piano Wire Latex Rockite 24 Material/Communication
Introducing rockite reveals material relationships and programatic possibilities
Title:Inlet Walkway Year:2012 Course:Architectural Studio I
The project asked us to select an object from â€œnatureâ€?. A small rock was made the subject of study. Underlynig geometries of the crystal formations within the rock became points of departure for the design of a pedestrian walkway that moves from enclosed, to porous and semi-open.
Site Plan: Warinanco Park, Roselle,NJ
Point of Intervention
A site of our own creation or choosing.
Photograph of Model
Geometry/Tension Materials:Basswood Chipboard
Circulation that moves from enclosed to semi-open, tense to free.
Title:Passage House Year:2013 Course:Architectural Studio II
The project first asked us to research a house well known in architectural history. Examining the history of Wall House 2 designed by John Hejduk revealed literary and coneptual poetics that evolved into a design for an architectural observatory that would exist on the Wall Houseâ€™s site.
Site Plan: Wall House 2, Groningen, The Netherlands
Point of Intervention
â€œThe Wall,â€? a brief moment of amplified experience
Traversing the space becomes the mode of observing the prolonged experience of time
