We learned 6 key phrases for describing this assignment relating to human and urban landscape.
- Compacity of architecture.
- City lifestyle that represents human quantum.
- Living in a compact environment.
- Elements that represent an urban landscape.
- Human culture in the use of space.
- Architecture in relation to human scale.
We ventured into the heart of the city to search for anything in relation to the 6 key phrases.
A poster of compiled architectural photos taken in Berlin and KL, inspired by the Dada art movement.
“With the new phrases in mind, there was a satisfying sensation when we were searching for elements representing the human and urban landscape. It’s good to broaden our knowledge regarding this because it keeps you thinking and from there, you are able to consider improvements to a certain problem.”
We needed to create a floor plan using shapes extracted from shadows of infrastructures. This was where we self-explored and initiated ideas for this assignment.
The top left picture was chosen for further exploration. Shapes within the photo needed to be experimented on through extension, distortion, flipping and resizing.
“It’s fascinating how these shapes were formed just from infrastructural shadows.”
This is a continuation of Assignment 3. We had to create forms with the aid of the floor plan.
“That’s the end of Project 2.”
