The Folly & the inherent qualities of beauty: understanding the eminence of performative surfaces and the economy of form. Instructors: Matias del Campo & Sandra Manninger (SPAN)
Thanks for postingas I understand your project the idea is a gradient delamination process of extensive and intensive forces from the twisted center towards your folly's borders.I like the simple rigor of this idea and the spatial qualities it creates. I think you have to follow the same idea for your structure and stairs. In this scenario it doesn't really matter whether the extensive or intensive is the starting point, but how the gradually foil (center)and delaminate (border) and how this processes are interacting to create structure and space. Also you should think of how you can develop a connection to the ground, applying the same concept of gradually interacting twistings and delaminations.
I agree with Sandras comment on your structure and especially will point out the possibilities given in terms of making use of the delamination process visible in this renderings.Furthermore I would like to point out the dvelopment of your stairs, as they seem to be detached more and more from the allover geometric aspect of your folly. It would help to use the delamination process as generator of the stairs. For example: Your stair seems to have allover the same wideness. What if it plays the game the entire folly is playing? Differentiated wideness according to the geometry they follow etc. Your project definetly has something like hips and waist, use this to form the stairs too.Another thing we discussed allready: Figure out how the Folly comes to the ground....your project is still floating free in space. By the way, the notion of architecture beeing weightless and light, to be floating, is something interesting for a longer discussion.
