    Extra Credit if You Can Name the Writers.

    Here are images from my 2nd Studio Project. The site was a hillside at, roughly, a 30 degree slope. My element (from the I Ching, discussed a few posts back) was fire. My "mentor" was Le Corbusier (this means we study an architect and interpret his/her ideas in our design). My "attribute" (also from the I Ching) is Purification. From this attribute, we had to develop a human tendency to use as our program. I chose reading. The path from purification to reading is arguable, but it made sense to me. I chose to use fire and light as the same entity and explored the constructive/destructive qualites of. One needs light to read, but direct light destroys books. This allowed me to play with light in my design. The fact that our site was a hillside gave me the idea to design around a basic plot diagram. I won't go into detail, but my design follows the rules of intro to climax to enlightenment, loosely. On our presentation board we are always asked to include insprirational images. Can you name the authors I have included?

    Here is the board and model:


















    [sincere apologies for the horrific photoshopping, but time is precious right now. I have to 3D model Meier's Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art by Monday. I am 20 hours deep already. Cheers.]
