Post Crit

Many questions posted from both Danielle and Igea are pretty much the same questions as before. I think I’m still figuring out the options available to go through considering sound investigations and other artists’ works are mostly based on technology while I’m trying to do it analogue. But like Danielle said, I could learn how…

Reflect on crit

Thank you for the comments on the crit on Tuesday. Those comments are useful and they did pointed out the weakness of the project. I think I was a bit lost after the last crit, after the urban farm idea to the light and shadow idea. Igea pointed out that spaces with only light and…

8 Weeks To Go

The sickness got to me after the crits, so sorry for the late blog. I appreciate the feedback, although I’m not sure how to progress in some areas (not that I don’t want to, just confused!) so could use a bit of guidance. The questions about my scheme being an intervention have concerned me. I…

¡VAMOS!

I think moving forward from the crit, I’m going to identify the elements of the building which can change, which can’t change etc. within a drawing/ set of drawings. Also drawing the reprogramming occurring side by side is important I think. I’ll make an inventory of possible uses (performance spaces, rehearsal spaces, bike repair shops, workshops, residences etc.)…

Incubator for Manhattan

Having had time to reflect on the audio recording of the crit, the overall feedback to the group and the personal feedback I realise that I did not present well partly because I was not happy with what I had brought to the table, mainly because I knew I had not included work I had…

Witam z Warszawy!

Hello from Warsaw! (That’s what the title says) I have been thinking about my project and how I can push the ideas that I have further; I have made a list of the things that I need to address: Life, death and eternity as material conditions. How will this be manifested? How should these be…

Blog z Warszawy

Hi from Poland! So this weeks blog is a little different and will consist of a reflection of the crit, some ideas for Easter and some references/ ideas I’ve seen in Warsaw. Crit reflection Overall I felt the crit went quite well (but a lot better than the previous crit). Although, I think the speed…

L.E.S Critique

The feedback was good, it offered a constructive critique of the presented work and it highlighted further the gaps which I need to work on to create an overall coherent project, developing the strategy for sites 2 and 3, which Im working on, and creating a dialogue between all the three sites and well as…

Thoughts after crit

Just to do a quick review of today’s crit before I forget. To-do-list for next week: Adjust the levels of the cell in relation to the existing block. Draw more scenes of the cell and communal space. Start thinking of arrangement of family units on existing building blocks. Thinking how the entrance of the scaffolding…

update for crit

    I am working on the laser cut model of the building, the laser cut takes sometimes and below are the facades of the building only. So I am trying to get the existing factory model done by tues, which means the frame of the building, columns and slabs. Sugar making process in Domino…

update model

Did some models to play with the form. Trying get the form confirm and also revised the dimensions based on the Atelier Bow-Wow book that Manijeh introduced. Planning to have: 2 options for single unit, 2 options for family unit, 1 option for shared unit. Am now arranging it in 3d software and will update…

Week 7 : Cross Crit Flow & Progress

Hello hello… I’ve prepared and identified the project flow including the project’s system.   All of the following technical programs that I’ve included as methodologies are based on existing technologies and new researches; Refined Keyword Adaptation Algorithm – http://www.eecs.qmul.ac.uk/~laurissa/Laurissas_Pages/Publications_files/Adaptive%20Identification%20of%20Hashtags%20for%20Real-time%20Event%20Data.pdf EmpaTweet http://www.hlt.utdallas.edu/~kirk/publications/robertsLREC2012_2.pdf For emotive spaces interactive programs : Facial recognition – http://emovu.com/e/video-analytics/emovu-player/ Interactive voice response system – http://www.hpl.hp.com/techreports/2003/HPL-2003-136.pdf…

The High Line

The High Line – Book illustrated with over 500 drawings and photographs from the archives of James Corner Field Operations and Diller Scofidio & Renfro, and narrated from the perspective of the architects, Piet Oudolf. Manijeh Verghese recommended this book to me (thank you so much!), and Charles Parrack loves the book so much, he…

El Barrio

After my discussions with Charles on Tuesday I have been reading about the principles of tall building structures. I shall look into some more studies of the tech behind the surrounding skyscrapers of Billionaire’s Row to follow on. Draft of a menu for the Burrito Restaurant. For Tuesday I need to develop some drawings of…

Cakeland and more…

For everyone: a different type of museum or display made from CAKE – these interiors put that weird shellac-ed cake in the City Reliquary to shame: http://www.dazeddigital.com/artsandculture/article/30304/1/meet-the-artist-making-massive-installations-out-of-cake Janie – check out this building in Auroville, Pondicherry – water runs along the walls of the building and there are two crystals embedded within the building where rays…

The Train Has Stalled

So I’ve finished the latest drawing on duration of pauses in the station: Duration of Pause 1 and did a spatial relationship with it which looks slightly like a jelly fish, but relates quite well to my floating landscape model and a previous drawing of GCT (the one with the smoke wisps linking the plan layers) :…

Update for crit list

Sorry for the late update, I took a little break after submission since my eyesight was blurry sometimes on thurs. I draft out a list of drawing that I probably need on cross crit to present my project -the journey routine -spaces (theme rooms) located in building -spatial quality/expression in spaces (in 3d line drawing?)…

Prototype space

Sketch of different spaces which can be combine into different prototype. Also thinking of ways for the facade of the form to  attach to the scaffold structure. Tomorrow will build different prototype model to see if it works. Idea based on: David Kohn Architect’s idea of breaking different space into a modular system and arranging…

Raiders of the Lost Arm

The model that I tested previously finally set properly and this is an update photo: I am going to test another model for next Tuesday; an inflatable model. Hopefully it will work (fingers crossed). For the cross crits I would like to show these items: A holistic introduction on Macy’s as the prevailer of immortality…

Quick Update

My list of things I’d like to produce for the cross crit are: Drawing of how long people are pausing in the station Timetable of pauses Indication of city wide impact Define view points within the station And if I have time after that, a first person view point of each experience. There’s probably something…

Incubator for Manhattan

I feel at the moment that I have many many things unfinished, or in at least first iterations, however, I also feelmore clear on what I am trying to achieve… it’s just a case of finding the best way to do it.  Some things have not been successful, others have helped to show what is…

The Game Changer

I’m interested in exapnding further the imagery and idea of ‘The Game’ for Tuesday. I like the idea of the city being a game for the players of the stock exchange to gamble with- their moves can make or break the city. This all relates back to  the 1929 stock market crash where the players…

live/work ideas

I’ve been looking into solution of live/work: ongoing research project by DOGMA. Basically the linear spaces in the site plan are living spaces based on the prototype you see on the second image. Living space are open to the community space then to the working space (hierarchy).   Both images are about affordable living focusing on…
