SITUATING SPACE – MODEL CONSTRAINTS

Keywords:

Site

Site Surface

Project Cube

Zone for the Project Cube

Sequence of Spaces

Constraints:

1- You cannot build outside of the zone for the project cube (7.5” x 7.5” x 3”).

2- You must use chipboard as a surface to cover the extent of the project site.  This will be your site surface.

3- You may cut, score, fold, etc. the site surface, but you may not remove any material from the site surface.  You must figure out how to use the material.

4- One (1) iteration must be elevated above the site.  The base of the project cube may not touch the top of the site surface.

5- One (1) iteration must rest below the surface of the site.  The base of the project cube must rest at the base of the zone for the project cube.

6- The other three (3) iterations must negotiate the way the sequence of spaces within the project cube is sited within the zone for the project cube.

7- Entry into and through the cube must be from the top of the site, not the bottom.

Questions:

– How are the spatial principles of hierarchy and organization that you previously studied being translated into the proportions of the 3” x 3” x 3” project cube?

-How does one enter the site? How does one enter the spaces of the project cube from the site?

– What experience are you beginning to create through the sequencing of spaces on the site?

– How are materials forming the solids that shape the void spaces?
