Assignment 2.1

 

Group 1 (Blabolil, Haak, Styer)

-          Develop Rhino / GH definition which produces the base surface which we will populate later. Refer to our discussion of Zones 1-4 along the length and A-C in section

 

1-      Entry / Conference / Exhibition Area                              

a.       create space for exhibition, possibly seating, address secondary entry into kitchen, hold guests here momentarily, well lit

2-      Conference Room Entry Door Alignment

a.       Waist to Eye level condition viewable / interactive with exit / entry area of conference room

3-      Corridor / Passage / Compression

a.       Transition from vertical wall to horizontal ceiling creates a condition of threshold / encapsulating, dark?

4-      Opening / Release into Studio Space

a.       Installation primarily horizontal, gently releasing one into the studio space. Gradual, surface above produces lighting?

 

A-     Lower Zone

a.       Bench, exhibit, display

B-      Mid Zone

a.       Eye level, hand (tactile) level

C-      Upper Zone

a.       Upper wall, Ceiling condition

 

-          Using specific loft curves, that respond sectionally to the planametric and sectional zones

-          Develop overall surface parametrically

-          Study how wall engages, and / or grows from entry wall conditions

-          Study how wall surface relates to existing surface (peeling conditions?)

 

Group 2- (Moore, Ticar, Stacy, Sareen)

-          Develop a series of “Parts” or “Components” that rely on a Structural frame / Surface Cladding condition. (ie Softlab’s Screen wall and Smart Clip).

-          The Part should be “smart” and accommodate variables that allow it to respond to different conditions in different areas.

-          Develop GH Definition to control part

-          Diagram how the part might operate in various conditions (small axons of the part instantiated in various conditions- open/closed, light emitting / light reflecting, etc.)

 

Group 3- (Ycaza, Connor, Wilmot)

-          Develop a series of “Parts” or “Components” that rely on a Mass / Volume that relies on adjacent parts for support (ie. Brick wall)  (ie Playlab’s wall formed form “Corb Windows” or LTL’s Sloan Kettering Installation).

-          The Part should be “smart” and accommodate variables that allow it to respond to different conditions in different areas.

-          Develop GH Definition to control part

-          Diagram how the part might operate in various conditions (small axons of the part instantiated in various conditions- open/closed, light emitting / light reflecting, etc.)
