Digital Design - Module 01 Aries Mateus - Radix Semester 1, 2018 Tingyi Wang

900888 Samuel Lalo + Studio 11

Week One

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? (100 words Maximum)

Diagram are able to represent informations from one-level draings. It can give out informations of facilities, functional areas, matrials, human movements and etc. Sign are specail shapes or texture which represent materials, objects, diretions and etc. Symbol is signs that represent particulars things. From all the above, diagrams can use symbols and create signs to represent the imformation more clearly and visibly.

Week One

Precedent Analysis

I use the picture under to chesck the situation of the space boolean differences by the Elipsoid. And the other one above to discovery the centre point of the curver projected on the space.

Week Two

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. (100 words Maximum)

Design are more likely an idea. Architecture design are devoted to represent an idea and concept into real object. For example, my precedent - Radix has seldom people to use and pass. It is hard to define the function of this architecture. Most of the people are used it like a shade area and enjoy they beautiful view underneath that. However, it represent the idea of contemprary and historic method combination. Also, it is suggested an approach that promote continuity instead of seeking novelty. The load bearing which only supported with three point on the ground are worth to mention as well. Therefore, the Radix might not be a useful architecture, but the design are still significant.

the modelling process, what was chosen to be shown, what was modelled in more detail. What did you learn about the circulation, threshold and construction whilst modelling. What is the key concept of the precedent study? Where is the Threshold and how does the circulation inform the design? TR

I chose the SW isometric view to show the linework. From this view, the continuity of the architecture could be represented clearly. And the the Fourth corner which hanging over a river in reality are able to be oberserved. Radix is a an architecture supported three points. In order to show the structure clearly and define the visible part from this view, I use overstriking lines to reprent the ouline, slimy lines to show the texture. Moreover, Full line to reprente visible part, dashed line to show the invisible part.

Week Two Diagrams

Circulation 1:120

Shell 1:120

This exploded isometric show the space underneath the structure, human movement are define on the ground floor. People are more likely to stay under the corner hanging over the river to enjoy the view.

The structure is a massive steel structure whioch created into a lightweight balanced volume.
