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


1

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.


6 Memory/Terrain


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 “where� I have been 8 Memory/Terrain

Projection/ Expansion

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.

Rigid/Organic Materials:1/4� Steel Rods Wire Mesh

Blue Light Projection


Red Light Projection

Light/Shadow 14 Projection/Expansion


Light is projected from two directions.

Material/ Communication

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.


Wire Model

Mapping/Diagramming Materials: Piano Wire

20 Material/Communication


Travel routes are translated into a three-dimensional diagram


Articulating surface with latex reveals inherent voids.

22 Material/Communication


Latex Model

Skin/Surface Materials: Piano Wire Latex


Rockite Model

Volume/Form Materials: Piano Wire Latex Rockite 24 Material/Communication


Introducing rockite reveals material relationships and programatic possibilities

Pattern/ Geometry

Title:Inlet Walkway Year:2012 Course:Architectural Studio I


The project asked us to select an object from “nature�. 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.

Poetics/ Experience

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 House’s site.


Site Plan: Wall House 2, Groningen, The Netherlands

“The Wall,� a brief moment of amplified experience


Traversing the space becomes the mode of observing the prolonged experience of time
