Since Tuesday I have been working on a number of elements simultaneolusly.
I have mainly been focussing on the design of the rest of the SE, re-drawing the roofscape for tech and for final images, and trying to sort out the order of my portfolio.
I have been struggling with the overall design of the SE and have tried to make it less blocky and more inviting, and this is still something I am working through. I have also figured out some design elements that I want to incorporate, it’s just figuring out how these fit into the design.
I decided that the walkway would tell a story of my project and include landscaped elements that do this (more similar to the highline). The walkway splits around 2/3 of the way down towards the SE which represents the stock market crashing. People can then choose to take the higher or lower level walkway to the building, but the lower level can only be taken at low tide and takes you on a journey through the piers so you can interact directly with them.
Still incorporating the perforated metal cladding on areas of the building, mainly to the south for light quality, Ive changed the dotted effect to one that incorporates slim sections that when combined create a speed perspective with the light, similar to my speed of data drawings, which I think creates a really nice, interesting space for the public, which leads through the building to the river. (excuse the very quick photoshop collage quality)
Before Tuesday’s tutorial I am hoping to format some of the pages from my portfolio based on the comments made at the review. I a,m also going to decide how each section will be printed taking into account heirarchy, paper etc.
These are just my ideas scribbled down so far;
I’m just going to carry on working through this in sections and work out how I want everything to be.
After all my technology progression and design of the moving elements that make up the roofscape, I have almost completed creating the roofscape in 3D AutoCAD, which has taken quite a while, but is a key aspect in the design. This will make up the main element for 3 of my final images; Roof at the end of day with people interacting with it, Roof with positive stock trading which reflects the skyline, and the roof with negative stock trading that also reflects the skyline. I will also create another image that shows how the roof changes throughout the day and will go along side the circular timeline of a day at the new NYSE. My computer is struggling to cope with the file size of the roof in 3D CAD, so have not yet managed to start these drawings, but will bring them on tuesday.
Roofscape changes through day
I want to show how the roofscape changes through the day to lead to the playground roofscape image. I want to print this on a series of tracing paper, hense the greyscale, so you can flick through time to see the changes, but I also like it on a long strip like this, so am yet to decide which format I will use. I will also add times to show at what time of day it is and in addition will create a circular version showing the entire day at the stock exchange. excuse the poor quality for uploading purposes!
