words

bricks

conceptual

The first prject is about using the bricks to demonstrate the concept of the words we are given ramdomly. Plan is seen as a character that represents the physical arrangement of the space. In this process, we are trying to experience the transformation from conceptual to phisical. 6

physical

redefine create the problem---solve the problem---redefine the problem

The development of the concept My goal: To acheive maximum effect with minimum effort.

the development of the concept

(positive&negative)

mess Instead of pulling out the thread of a system, I tried to think from the opposite---to maintain the thread.

random

define the edgeâ&#x2020;&#x2019;become part of it (a practice of transformation between positive and negative space)

In order to achieve "randomly" , the original arrangement has to be in good order.

gravity

the development of the concept

The natrual force can be more effective than mannual force

Dominoes Domino theory

The original format has to be tight related so that a single movement of one brick can make a sequence of changes to others.

unpredictable chaos theory Chaos theory studies the behavior of dynamic systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions. Small differences in initial conditions yield widely diverging outcomes for chaotic sstems,rending long-term prediction in general.

10

Having a row of dominoes set up, and knock over the first one,and what will happen to the last one is the certainty taht it will go over very quickly. so you would have a beginning of a distegration that would have the most profound influences. The effect is unpredictable.

control The key concept is the BALANCE between control and uncontrol. To create and TAKE CONTROL of something that can be sometimes OUT OF CONTROL.

final solutions

final solutions

remove

insert(horizontal)

The bricks are laid out alternating like a tight weave, forming square space.

After three bricks being inserted to the system, the orderly arrangement is disturbed.

More bricks were inserted to the arrangement and the system become unstable.

final solutions

final solutions

three layers

four layers

final(six layers)

The bricks are piled up into three layers. the form of triangle indicates stability.

The bricks were randomly pulled out from lower layer. because of the gravity, the rest collapse.

More bricks were pulled out and the rest spread out. the natrual force made the system disarranged.

final solutions

final solutions

single circle

single circle

final

The bricks were vertically laid out forming alternating circles on the ground.

One brick was randomly pushed down and the bricks fall down one after another as a sequence.

Eventually, all the bricks were affected, and the system appeared in chaos.

plan as a base

For this project, we chose a single arrangement from our plan as a starting. The projection is the development of the plan. The cut is to reveal the inside of the projection. 20

The original grid was remained. 21

The cut is made to reveal the way how fraction and integrate bricks relate to each other.

Model will lead to the development of an architectural proposition and understanding of the transformation from engraved drawings to the gravity of the model. we articulate and anticipate a step forward from drawing to model. 26
