ASSIGNMENT_1_POINTS_AND_LINES

 

Under Assignment 1, we familiarised ourselves with basic elements of architecture and they are called “point” and “line”.

Point: Marks a position of space.

Line: An identifiable path created by a point moving in space.

 

Before we could proceed any further with our assignment, we were instructed to search for photos of architecture on the Internet.

OUTCOME:

Initially, points were marked before they could be connected by lines.

2D RELIEF: A white thread was sewn through the picture that was pasted on a modelling card, tracing the points and lines of the first work.

3D RELIEF: A white thread was wrapped around nails that were hammered through the picture that was pasted on a modelling board, tracing some points and lines.

“This was my first attempt in spatial design and it was nice to have a little insight on how space works with just points and lines. I also enjoyed this one because it was hands-on.”


 

ASSIGNMENT_2_PLANE_AND_VOID

 

After learning about points and lines, we proceeded to “planes” and “voids”.

Plane: A flat surface created by lines.

Void: An open space created within planes.

 

There are three types of planes; base, wall and overhead. They do not necessarily have to be enclosed. Hence, creating an open space called a “void”. It mostly serves the function of air ventilation and the penetration of natural light.

Before we could build our model, we were required to analyse the 3 different types of planes on the photos we had chosen from the Internet.

OUTCOME

We were required to choose a B&W city map and fill the streets with different coloured pens. This was to create planes from the shapes that we wanted for our 3D development. Then small nails were utilised to hold the horizontal planes together.

DESCRIPTION

“This assignment really tested my thinking skills because I needed to consider the functionality behind it and I didn’t really like the shapes I created until I built it up.”


 

ASSIGNMENT_3_PROPORTION_SCALE_AND_BALANCE

 

Proportion: A comparative relationship between parts of an entire work to a whole within one image.

Scale: The overall size of an object in relation to other objects, humans or the environment.

Balance: Distribution of weight or force among visual units; asymmetrical, symmetrical and radial.

OUTCOME:

 

20170603_100638
PROPORTION OF SCALE CREATES BALANCE: Although the lines are symmetrical, the overall image is asymmetrical due to the position of the colours.

 

20170603_100642
SYMMETRICAL BALANCE: Both sides are equally similar in terms of lines and colours.

 

20170603_100645
ASYMMETRICAL BALANCE: They are not symmetrical because the right side is a 3D interpretation of the 2D image on the left. Black and white threads were wrapped around the nails that we hammered into the drawn points.
