Triptych

Ok so this week I’ve modified the set of schedules to provide more consistencies and correlations between each time period. Each is a bit more fleshed out which has led to a few revelations as to which details are important, such as the windows, the threshold into the building etc.   Whats interesting about the…

Work in Progress

I have been trying to get my programme and the concept as foolproof as possible. However on the design part, i am really stuck as to which way should i move forward. I have an idea in my head but it hasnt developed all too much yet. MPL hasnt helped it much to be honest….

Pause 16/02/25

So this post is meant to be about what I’m struggling with – which currently is time! My next steps are currently planned as: First person views of texting, smoking, and taking a photo Drawing up the water fountain (with the traces of wear and sediment) Carrying out tests on my second model Another drawing of…

The new Stock Exchange

After Tuesday’s tutorial, I have continued to think about my project and some of the ideas that came up in the discussion.   I have worked a lot on a site model of the piers, which will help me when it comes to space planning and modelling the building. I am awaiting new drill bits…

Silence

I’ve been trying to find suitable images to get started with the silent spaces and at the same time thinking on how to understand the contrast between the noisy bridge and in creating the silent spaces sequel. Just some images found and the real drawings are in progress. This looks like musical notes from the…

Monumental Windbags

“Instead of being an object of privileged vision, the balloon was necessarily the visual property of everyone in the crowd. On the ground it was still, to some extent, an aristocratic spectacle; in the air it became democratic…The sense that they [the crowd] were witnessing a liberating event – an augury of a free-floating future…

Enthused

Some thoughts on the soldered model after Tuesday: The new towers of Billionaire’s Row are the product of financial calculations. Their form is the evidence of rationalist thought processes that are concerned with core efficiencies and net floor areas: the building as a product. When we speak of the ‘anti-tower’ what does it react against?…

LES – Tenement Chic

Tenement Chic? Excerpt from a Walking tour of the LES by urban historian Barry Feldman Garish grotesques, mythical beasts, beautiful botanicals, ornate cornices, columns and pilasters are a few examples of  architectural ornamentation that adorn otherwise drab nineteenth century tenements.  Who were the anonymous artisans who created these treasures?  What changes in technology allowed for…

Boarding the Train

Looking at my previous device, instead of focusing it on sound, I like to direct it towards ‘linearity’ (how the data behaves) and how the data embedded inside it travel and were transmitted through a single line. The data (solid particles) in a single line has the characteristics of moving from point A to point…

Work in Progress

Ive been working on the mapping exercises and started uncovering layers of fiction and fact. The book ‘Everything in Life is as much Fiction as it is Fact’. and it has helped me through a couple of things. The book mainly involves Cinematic Architecture and what cinematic architecture consists of, and what defines it. It…

The removable stock exchange

Leading on from tutorials on tuesday, I have started drawing the information and reserach that I have done on the NYSE. With the understanding that most of the trades on the NYSE floor happen electronically, (with a few still traded by hand) the main servers based in Mahwah, NJ, I could propse to make the…

LES Hybrid – Drawing/ Collage

For my conceptual drawing, I want to hybridise (is that even a word?) my drawing!!! I’m looking at layering the existing fabric/textures of the site three-dimensionally and then adding to this layers my ‘interventions’/ ‘beacons’  and Stairs- as I envisage…. I also see this as an opportunity for the drawing/ collage to fold/ unfold, so I…

11/02/16

    Since the tutorial I have had a go at the conceptual collage:   This is following my current thoughts of creating ‘tanks’ for the experiences, situated within the voids between the main concourse and the waiting room to combine them. The space between the columns is similar to some of the windows on…

Merry Cemetery video

Inez – thought this might be interesting for you since it relates to the shrine you created yesterday and a death positive attitude. It might be interesting for everyone since it talks about redesigning the cemetery as a new form of museum. Enjoy! https://www.facebook.com/atlasobscura/videos/10153989551167728/   I also found these two links interesting after watching the…

Post Crit & Feedback

The obvious mistake I did was not showing the assignments/works that have done from semester 1 which leads to the subsequent ideas and I didn’t explained properly and somehow,  the whole idea didn’t even cross the table and I end up confused myself. (lol. Too nervous I guess) So how to go from here. Few…

post crit thoughts

Following the review from Tuesday, I think my brief wasn’t persuasive/strong enough to convince the crit. The following question have yet to be solved: i) Cross programming: Allow more flexibility in the design scheme that could benefit not only the artists but also the lower income community. I think it is a good suggestion but I will…

Post-Crit Update

Following on from the crit, which I personally feel didn’t go very well, as I was unable to fully explain my thought process and idea for the museum, which led to confusion about what my project is about. As I didn’t have a clear idea about what I wanted the museum to exhibit, I found…

Museum of Uncollectibles

Museum of Uncollectibles L.E.S Vanishing Archives Following this weeks design review, I feel that my presentation wasn’t clear enough to portray my ideas and offer a full perspective of the project and its intentions, perhaps due to the fact that I hadn’t yet narrowed down my own intentions for the brief yet! Taking the feedback…

Interesting talk on the Future of New York’s Skyline

I literally jut saw this on Facebook (Bjarke Ingels shared it lol) and thought it was interesting to have a look. http://92yondemand.org/future-new-yorks-skyline The biggest names impacting New York’s skyline — from Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier to Bjarke Ingels, whose firm was chosen to design Two World Trade Center and Annabelle Selldorf, known for her…
