Week 8 : Cross Crit Feedback + Easter Plans.

Hello hello….

The crit session with Manijeh and Jessica was very very helpful. It gave me lots of insights that i can possibly explore for  the project’s potentials.

So, what i’ve presented on the crit was actually the main structure of the virtual phase of the project.  im planning to detail up each of the systems during easter.

As for the physical phase of the project.. I am looking into technology architecture to design a space that is influenced or controlled by the virtual phase. The physical intervention should be adaptive and suits the contextual layers of the site.

Also during easter i will focus on the structure of the platform and produce technical drawings consisting plans elevations sections and details.

For Tuesday, i will try to pitch some ideas and strategies on the physical phase of the project and also some construction ideas for the platforms.

 

Thats it for now i guess..

 

Thank you.

  1. Good plan for Easter – I think its really about figuring out exactly what you want the spatial experience to be like in Times Square – how do you take it beyond the flat 2d dimensional screens to become a 3d experience. You did a big push for the cross crit and for the first time were quite precise about how the system worked which meant that Jessica could clearly understand your project. On Tuesday it would be good to see a first attempt at drawing how the data is gathered from the city and collected/ displayed in Times Square – think of it as an overview drawing to map the virtual phase of your project onto the city. Looking forward to seeing it!

  2. Bert, I saw this project and it reminded me of your idea of gaining emotions through social media. This student, Alexander Dunkel, used Flickr to find out how people photographed cities from location and hashtags in their social media uploads. From this he created word cloud maps to show the location and frequency of words that people were using at places in the US, such as The High Line in NYC, and how you can design better using real-life data collection.
