Song’s plan for next week till 6th December

Points to cover in this post :

  1. the work you brought to tutorials
  2. the feedback you received
  3. and most importantly, your plan for what you will be working on in the week ahead

(a)

Work shown: Translyvania booklet – sketches of journey, ethnographic corpse and banffy castle ghosts

Feedback/To do : Refine drawings, rethink importance/necessity of sketches of journey, rethink booklet title

(b)

Work : Presentation/Process pages for Dungeness design project

Feedback/ To do :

– Rethink 5-skins diagram in the observer’s and occupant’s point of perspective, ¬†(exploratory/experiential), Try inverting position of 5 elements (site being the impermanent —— furniture being the permanent/longest lasting)

– Refine variety of lineweights and hatch for the boundary/Territory map, Impirical vs. Sketch, A higher level of finesse

– Convert earliest fold out drawing of house into an animation (gif) to show on screen

– Repackage the strategy of transient/permanent home in a language that can be understood by self-builders (non-architects) – Building for dummies

– Format of manual/instruction kit accessible by everyone, bespoke manual that can be customised (through fold-out or sliding technique) by self-builders

– Create 3d physical model to engage with audience – a kit of building elements that allow audience to build according to bespoke manual

– Incorporate thought process and principles of pinhole photography into representation/drawing style, Overexposed photographs (large aperture) = light/finer lineweight drawings, underexposed photographs (small aperture) = dark/heavier lineweight drawing////// longer focal length = higher magnification and narrower angle of view = magnified/large scale drawings , shorter focal length = larger angle of view = small scale drawings

– Materials for self-assembly to be easily available, standardised, minimal. Frame structures are more readily procured than SIPs (heavily reliant on industrial fabrication), Study how components aggregate, fit together

– Volume of space needed for one hour, one day, one month, etc….

– other possible modular shapes besides square – triangulation, hexagon

– Folding in vs. Folding out, folding out to added more spaces, folding in to refine space/subdivide a space

Final outcome = Fold out manual (strategy, typology, economics, planning, construction sequence, price, duration, lifespan) to sell to visitors of Dungeness Рto empower them to customize their home in D. + Physical models showing key construction details/joints

Will look at SQM quantified house book tomorrow and dive into Segal’s building / land procurement procedures and refine the fold out/in technique

To do material lifespan testing
