Foil studies revisited

I reviewed the earlier Pattern and foil studies and noticed many similarities (and possible solutions) to your projects- please take a look


Can you use glimpses/ angles of view as a device within your strategy?

Remember these simple translations?

Reflective materials, differentiated angles/ profiles etc.
This model could almost be a fragment of your catwalk...


These foil models can be re-translated at several scales within your scheme- as urban corridors, geometries, profiles of facets, interactive screen walls

What a great image! - but we haven't seen this since- hidden line render could give another level to the ambiguity of line vs. surface created by your anamorphic techniques


These simple surface studies were where we began discussing distortion, illusions of depth, perception with basic rules

Can we not imagine areas of heightened awareness...

or spaces with a distorted sense of perspective, scale- creating heightened senses of hierarchy, anxiety etc?


The configuration of holes/ spacing is more complex here than your current scheme..

.. creating the illusion of surfaces by profiling and contour- can this be achieved in your own project?


You have been searching for simple strategies about profiling and patterning- but you already have it here- from early foil studies- please carefully consider their reuse

Use them to create a better understanding about the principles and origins of the lofting technique

Include these drawn studies in your portfolio- they are pivotal


Stack-bonding techniques have always been more than a simple construction technique- the stepped profiles are intrinsically linked with our perception of the surface- depth/ distance/ tone

Do these differing techniques not offer contrasting approaches to our perception of material and surface within your four adjacencies and the interarticulation of individual volumes/ surfaces?


Week 2, term 1- and you have possibly already designed the building....
Opposing grains interlaced- what are the effects/ interconnections? Can this technique not be applied between internal skins and floors/ spaces?

Planes that shift to create more openness or conceal activity- could you make small fragments of exactly how the surfaces come together? Maybe not the notching script after all...


Can your project not benefit from a consistent method/ form-making device but just with simple variations such as here: changes in scale, material, distance- to create differing effects?

What happened to this simple device- to create glimpses- but without cutting the surface away?

Please add your own thoughts/ comments
