I went to town for foam core boards with the size of 32×40 to make the base for other lots, in addition, I also bought a new small knife for cutting foam core boards. As soon as I got back, I stick every layer for “Park” together and add on the base foam core, with two basal wood stick in the back supporting it. I started cutting out foam core boards as the same process with the first one; however, “Lot 2” has a lot more layers with curvy edges, which took me longer to cut out. I stopped around half way through and call it a day.
I cut out “Park” with clean edges and separated it by the height of different pieces. Then I put each pieces on foam core depended on the scale of the pieces and cut out all the foam cores for “park.”I stack each all of them on top of each other in order, to check if the 3D landscape look the same with the 2D landscape. The last thing I did was glue the first and second foam core together.
I met with Ned at 1:00 PM to discuss the new plan for my new senior project. I decided to make four models of the houses Ned have designed back in 2008. We then head out to East Hampton and Sag Harbor to purchase Basal Wood and Foam Core. Later on, we arrived at Watermill to enlarge all the blueprint into the same size with same proportion, 1:4. When we got back to Ross, we went over the process and hope everything goes with the plan.
FYI: I still didn’t get a proper response ore just even a response from my proposal I wrote on 02/20/15. What a responsible adult right? Ross! America!
I finish all of my sketches and they are all on their way to here. I will double check with Ned before I continue to finish my final drawings on the good quality papers. I visited several real estates to look at the models that demonstrates their architectures or buildings. I will, hopefully, be able to finish an extra model for my museum in my project before the exhibition night.
After going through my notes and looking at the work of Jacques Herzog and Oscar Niemeyer over the break, I’ve developed some ideas for the elevation drawings. I’m planning to bring in my ground floor drawing to my mentor tomorrow and talk about it. Hopefully, we will decide where to get the large paper for my final drawings.
Finishing up the draft of floor plan for the ground floor and the first floor. Filling in the contract with mentor. Still looking for papers, with good quality, that will be large enough for my floor plans.
I’ve been drawing a lot, such as example museum and the outer look of my museum, including floor plans. I just changed the outer look of my museum from an abstract combination of triangles, circles, squares and lines to a gigantic ball.
I drew down some example floor plans from museums I’ve been researching on, which can give me a general idea of how floor plans cooperate with the outer look of buildings. Finished my final list of items under small and organized categories, this helped me to acknowledge how much space I need in my museum. Handing in one floor plan or the outer look by the end of this week.
I’ve finished my list for the things that will be included in the museum yesterday, and I added in the details and defined some of the terms. Such as, RBC,WBC, and nerve cell. My list is still currently very broad and I’m trying to narrow it down to an acceptable range with Mr. Kirk. So far, I’m still on track with the schedule from Ms. Lein.
Did several sketches of the outer look of the museum, draw down some thoughts for the inner space of the museum. Talked with Ned today about making a schedule with set deadlines to get me on track. Needs to collect images of what will be in the museum before next Monday.
I met with my mentor this tuesday, in order to discuss the rubric for my products and the artist’s statement. The major goal for the week is to develop a concrete rubric that will suit my project. The rest of the project will be discussed afterward. One step at a time.
I have decided the type of building I will be designing, an extension of a museum– a biology wing. The museum will contain a full tour of the human body, which will possibly affect the shape of the building. I have sat coming up in a few days, probably will work on my senior project after sat on Oct 11th.
I’ve been exchanging emails with Miles, my outside school advisor. I haven’t decide what kind of building should I design, but I know it will be relates to science. The two options I have now are: a scientific research lab or a science museum. Nevertheless, I’ve been collecting image of buildings that gave me ideas.
Still concern with how to combine biology with in architecture. I had ask several people about this idea. Probably will look for a chance to talk to Mark Foard. Found an interesting idea while doing my research. http://inhabitat.com/a-utopian-vision-for-food-city-dubai/
