One thought on “Update – Pre Easter Eggcellence

  1. Hi Oliver. I enjoyed your seasonal title. If this blog allowed me to insert a bunny emoji it would be right here >

    Staging post – it is clear how it will be built like this but what is less clear, is why? To explain this a bit more – I have no doubts about your groyne construction because I understand how this has been generated by your thesis on shingle movement. But it is not yet clear how your thesis arrived at the staging post’s structure. Is it that it is a structural solution that responds to the difficult ground of shifting shingle? If so make this clear. Why this response, what position does it take on the shifting nature of your site (and thesis)? Does your solution respond with complete stability? Make your intention in arriving at this structure, in the context of your thesis, clear.

    Your staging post programme is intriguing, and I am interested in the various levels of experience of the unfolding acts but you will need to show these in more detail (I am sure that these drawings are on the way). Make some drawings and views to show us how the people occupy, move through, and observe the acts. You might construct these drawings from a logic of sight lines, at each stage what does a person view – is this there something in the periphery that suggests adjacent stages? Build on theatre as your reference and really consider how you manipulate spatially the relationship between viewer and what is viewed. I am not sure if your lighthouse programme drawing is a plan or a graphic to show the activities. Be careful of such ambiguities (I am sure this is because the drawing is in isolation from the other drawings and views, but this hi lights their importance)!

    Your staging post audience view seems to suggest quite a conventional audience subject relationship and from this view alone it is not clear how your research into theatres has informed the design, see the above and below points on developing this. Finally – why are there Victorians in the theatre? There is some confusing time travel here!!

    Good work. In conclusion, now put focus on the ‘why?’ and ‘what’s it like?’ of the staging post.
