Fake Plastic Trees
This is the site model for Project Two, that is already well underway.
For this project we were given one of three sites that are right here on campus. I was given the site that is in between our library (that was a church when our campus was some sort of all-girls catholic school. i think.) and the library annex. It is currently wasted space on a campus crying out for more space. The neat thing about having this site is that there is going to be a competition at the end of the semester to design and build something here. I don't know much about it yet but I will update when I do.
Anyhow, the program I was given is Taste
, We are to incorporate a primary and secondary material into a cohesive design. I am sticking with plywood as my primary material and adding some sort of plastic cloud structure to it. I think. I was excited to have this site, but it is turning out to be more difficult than I expected. Both existing elevations are the asses of the buildings and I am having to deal with emergency exit doors and ducts and grills, not to mention its imposingly harsh rectalinear plan. I will post some sketches and concept models later. I think I am going to take the rest of the evening off to relax.
