Follow up the tutorial on last tuesday, all plans are finished in cad last week. And I also did some portfolio update during the weekend.
Here are the plans: plans combine
I’ll leave the plans for now and start to work on 3d model. When I have my sections, I’ll do the graphic with the plans together and put them into portfolio.
And for the portfolio update,
P.1 is new to add in, the show the building react to the sun path
P.3-4 is updated version to replaced the old direct sunlight into the building
P.5-6 added more photos in, the line frame and font will be cut out
p.11 texture added on the walls
p. 15 updated version of the previous darkroom interior render
p. 16 updated version of the previous exhibition area within the darkroom render (the bottom of the wall is a framed glazing to isolate sound and let the light comes out from rooms to darkroom)
p. 19 is a diagram showing the space on ground level, it is a low illuminate environment with molasses filled the surrounding and top. the 3d model will show more in details.
For back up research,
I am organizing a sheet to show the demolished/renovated factories in williamsburg to support the reason why I am designing the sugar factory into light and shadow museum.
Again, the focus should be 1. light and shadow 2. sugar factory 3. the industries of Williamsburg
- Light and shadow is a carry on research from last semester. Shadow is inevitable when an object is placed in front of light. And light, as sun and light source are something we need everyday to do our work in day and night. Shadow and light museum is to give people a place to enjoy, to inspired by the light and shadow. It is something we don’t pay attention on and we think it is only appeared in photography, and I put it into an experience for visitor to explore.
- The reason of turning sugar factory to light and dark museum. Sugar factory and lighting are inalienable. Sugar factory normally works 6 to 7 days, 24 hours in a week, especially keep the sugar boiling in liquid from during operation. The energy spending is massive. Hence in order to reduce energy spending, according to Sugar Refinery Handbook, factory intend to add in natural lighting into rooms to reduce the use of electrical lighting energy. Although natural lighting is encouraged but it is also restricted in some areas, such as sugar storage and boiling room. The temperature can be rise up to 50 degree during peak hour in boiling room, the larger opening for natural light would make the boiling room even hotter. Also during the sugar production, sugar dust as a side products in specific steps is easy to explode. Therefore the building contains light and dark two extreme lighting levels.
- turning sugar factory to museum.
sugar factory is a remarkable building that can represent Wiliamsburg. Willamsburg was a well-known industry area that many factories there reached their best in world in their glorious time. Followed by the declaration of industry, factories in Willamsburg got shut down, demolished or renovated. Under the lack of housing condition in New York, factories are legislated to be redeveloped as luxury or special condo and flats. The rezoning scheme for Greenpoint and Williamsburg, part of Williamsburg are rezoned into business district, that pushing local industries to move out or closed down. The purpose to keep sugar factory as a museum is to protect the the spirit of Williamsburg as an industry city and to break the routine of renovated abandoned factories into hotel or flats. I want to keep the sugar factory to tell the story of what it used to and what the place used to be. By supporting this, there are workshop spaces in the buildings to provide rooms for local small/individual industries.
The building is designed into 2 routines, up and down. Up is restricted on light and shadow experience, even using some sugar factory elements as background. Down is more open to show the background of the building and the industry city with light and shadow elements in rooms.
LIST OF ITEMS TO SHOW IN PORTFOLIO
