ALL DELIVERABLES DUE AT THE START OF CLASS THURSDAY IN PREPARATION FOR OUR FINAL REVIEW




P03c // SURFACES Thursday, Apr 09

Last project means last final big PUSH!!! Ya'll got this!!!


/ P03b_REFINED DIAGRAMS
After discussions in class on Thursday all students should refine their chosen diagram based on the comments received in class. Think dense, think scalar, think CONTROL. The more facets you have the morse CONTROL you will have over the way in which my HAND and ARM OCCUPY AND ACTIVATE THE SURFACE ITSELF. Think about how to use what you know in terms of cantilevering, nodes, tension, and compression. How does one enter the surface? How tight is the surface? Can I push on it?

Upon refining the diagram add an additional 3 layers:

_HAND GRID Develop a grid system using a very light linewieght that demonstrates the BASIC SIZE OF YOUR HAND IN ONE STATE. Meaning fist or open. Apply this grid over your whole diagram to help find areas where you may raise or lower the surface to allow OCCUPATION of your hand.
_ARM GRIDDevelop a grid system using a very light linewieght that demonstrates the BASIC SIZE OF YOUR ARM IN ONE STATE. Meaning flat or on its side. Apply this grid over your whole diagram to help find areas where you may raise or lower the surface to allow OCCUPATION of your arm.
_AXIS Using arrows or CMYK lines demonstrate three (3) levels: primary=highest, secondary=mid, tertiary=lowest


/ P03c VARIED SURFACES
USING YOUR DIAGRAM AS A MAP, A PLAN, begin to articulate you TECTONIC LOGICS / GEOMETRIC PATTERNS physically. Starting with the tape model, and moving towards more rigid, better constructed surfaces. The final surfaces must fulfill the following contraints:

_Tape Model: Show signs of testing
_Compressional Model: Use DESIGNED NODES, be rigid, able to push on. Occupy and Activate from underneath the surface.
_Tension Model: Use GLUE OR SOLDER, held together in tension via fishing line. Occupy and Activate EITHER underneath the surface or via spaces created on top of surface.
_ALL: MUST HIT AT LEAST 8" OFF TABLE AT ONE MOMENT ONLY, CAN BE HIGHER OR LOWER

Each model should take time, effort, and demonstrate the isolated testing or forces it is acting on. Think about how your arm and hand activate space, occupy space, and enter and exit space:

0_WRITING In your sketchbook, begin to articulate you design, spatial, and construction goals. Quick sentences describing CLEARLY WITHOUT FLUFF, your agenda for each or all.

1_TAPE MODEL: this model should be held together with tape and seen as a study model for the compression and tension models of the surface. Test ideas of entry points, exit points, activation. This step literally tapes members together to form the diagram AFTER YOU HAVE REFINED IT. How high can you push and pull your DIAGRAM AXIS to test how they react? Are there moments when you find the diagram/map needs different size members? Scale? Density? Are the facets you are creating allowing you to have control over the spaces it is constructing?

2_COMPRESSION MODEL: this model should be constructed with focus on the node and points of connection. When constructing this model focus on the proportions of the hands and arms. The model must create occupiable space for the hands and arms and the space should be clearly demonstrated. If the the compression model can be occupied by a different way than intended, the space is not clearly exhibited. Being that it is a compression model, it should also be able to withstand pressure from above.

3_TENSION MODEL: this model maybe glued together at points of connection. After gluing the model of the underlying diagram together tie portions of the model together with fishing line or string so that the model is in tension. Make good choices on where and how the model is tied together.

4_INSTAGRAM: IT IS REQUIRED TO UPLOAD at least two (2) PROGRESS IMAGES ONTO INSTAGRAM OR THROUGH EMAIL OVER THE WEEKEND. #1412_Construct15


DELIVERABLES DUE TUESDAY AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS:
_P03b Refined Diagram One (1) refined diagram with added layers, used as Map/Plan for surfaces, printed @ 24” x 24”

/ P03 CONCEPTS

Introduction to Tectonics / Diagramming
Layer and Assembly
Materiality
Connection
Linear Members
Compression / Tension
Structural Integrity / Stability
Truss / Space Frame
Composition
Aggregation / Modulation
Dimensional Sympathy
Tectonic Logic
Grid
Sequence of Forces
Interiority / Exteriority


/ P03 OBJECTIVES

Plane (n):noun
1. a flat, two-dimensional surface.
2. the two-dimensional analogue of a point (zero dimensions), a line (one dimension) and three-dimensional space.
3. the surface between joints, nodes

Phase 03 will introduce the notions of tectonics as seen through a plane or surface, as tension and compression are mitigated through compressional joints. The notion of the “plane” will be reinforced by the tectonic logic used to formulate a grid system, translated from two-dimensional to three-dimensional. Methods of testing will include ASSEMBLING LINEAR MATERIALS through a single joint design to form a space frame “light.”


/ STEP 01_RESEARCH

Each of the following examples should be researched per student and be sketched in your sketchbook, INCLUDE BOTH DRAWING AND WRITING.

1. truss systems
2. forces acting in truss systems
3. space frames
4. origami patterns
5. triangular pleating
6. pleated structures


/ STEP 02_SKETCHBOOK DIAGRAMMING

USING BOTH DIGITAL AND ANALOGUE METHODOLOGY, students will use this phase to learn how to generate structural design from diagramming. Focus on how each geometric GRID SYSTEM poses questions of nodes, connection, joints, tension, and compression.

Each of your iterative diagrams should ONLY EMPLOY LINES AND POINTS, however, one should investigate different thickness, sizes, and lengths to further develop the complexity of your joint.

grid (n)
1. a framework of spaced bars that are parallel to or cross each other; a grating.
2. a network of lines that cross each other to form a series of squares or rectangles.

Three (3) sketchbook diagrams THAT DEMONSTRATE STUDENT RESEARCH TRANSLATION.


/ STEP 03_COMPRESSIONAL SURFACE 01

SPACE FRAME: In architecture and structural engineering, a space frame or space structure is a truss-like, lightweight rigid structure constructed from interlocking struts in a geometric pattern. Space frames can be used to span large areas with few interior supports.

TO BEGIN, each student will research types of geometric GRID SYSTEMS that will influence their design for the compressional surface. Each student will focus on using the DIAGRAM TO GENERATE DESIGN. Think TENSION AND COMPRESSION! NODE AND MEMBER!!

Focus on the two parts of the process, following in sequence:

_Three (3) Geometric Compositions created by the Student - Diagrammed @ 24” x 24”
/ Include LAYERS: Construction Lines, Nodes, Primary Members, and Secondary Members

_Three (3) Built/Physical versions @ 12” x 12” which HANG on top of the diagram
/ No glue must be used, members should be rigid only in two-dimensional condition (lay flat) / No node should be larger than 1"x1"x1"

_Design Questions to ask during process

1. How does your grid system demonstrate scale?
2. Does your system employ both primary and secondary members?
3. How many members connect at the NODE?
4. How many NODES DO YOU NEED to achieve the same spatial variation?
5. Can you distinguish primary, secondary, and tertiary spaces?
6. What size member should you use to actualize your grid system?
7. What 12” x 12” area should you demonstrate physically?

_Suggested Materials Think linear!!!

1. Bass wood
2. Plastics
3. Piano Wire
4. Wood dowels
5. ANY FOUND ANYTHING!!!! OR RECYCLED!!!!!


DELIVERABLES DUE TUESDAY AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS:

_P03a Sketchbook Research Six (6) research categories assessed in your sketchbook through drawings AND writing
_P03a Sketchbook Brainstorming Three (3) sketchbook diagrams THAT DEMONSTRATE STUDENT RESEARCH TRANSLATION and process variations of a square grid pattern
_P03a Geometric Patterns Three (3) Geometric Compositions created by the Student - Diagrammed @ 24” x 24”
_P03a Compressional Surfaces Three (3) Built/Physical versions @ 12” x 12” which HANG on top of the diagram


P02d // Final Aggregate Thursday, Apr 02

Due to the shops weekend hours the aggregate can be 60-70% complete on Tuesday with the finished aggregate due on Thursday April 9, 2015

FINAL PUSH IS HERE!!!! I encourage ALL of you to take time EACH DAY to brainstorm, sketch, write, test, PLAY, and build, as this last push will produce you final aggregate structure for this second phase project.


/ P02d Final Aggregate

As you grow up and out, remember to consider SPATIAL VARIATIONS, TERMINATION, OCCUPATION, AND AGGREGATION. How do you reinforce your joint system to be strong, rigid, and hold together in ANY ORIENTATION. What are the varieties of space inherent to your JOINT SYSTEM? BE AGGRESSIVE!!!

Size Requirements:

_Height: Min 5'-0 off floor
_Width and Depth: Apprx. 3' x 3' volumetric constraint.

Note: Some of you will be higher than others, as discussed in class. Also, you may break slightly the 3' x 3' volume, MAKE GOOD CHOICES.


/ P02d Final Diagrams

Continue to ITERATE AND EDIT your diagrams, especially as your aggregate begins to grow. Your final diagrams should be demonstrative of your FINAL AGGREGATE, thus do these last. As you learned to use the plotter today, you will print ALL THREE DIAGRAMS ON ONE SINGLE 24" X 36" PIECE OF PAPER.

_Center / Equally space all three (3) diagrams
_Include your Name, Glassell, ARCH 1412, CONSTRUCT and Diagram Titles ONLY ONCE IN THE TOP RIGHT HAND CORNER
_Label the drawings under your name per this example: Left (Top View), Center (Side View), Right (Side View) etc.
_USE ONLY ONE COLOR, CMYK
_Be intimate and delicate with your line weights and line types, ask colleagues if your diagram is legible
_Construction Lines!!!!!
_Think dense, think specific, think demonstrative!
_Fill Opacity Change: Primary @ 30%, Secondary @ 20%, Tertiary @ 10% Grey Fills
_Print on plotter paper @ 24" x 36" landscape format


DELIVERABLES DUE TUESDAY AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS:

_P01d Final Aggregate One (1) 60-70% aggregation at min 72" x 36" x 36" demonstrating one (1) joint system - max two (2) materials
_P01d Final Systems Diagrams Three (3) elevation diagrams each printed on one single 24" x 36" sheet of paper, landscape FORMAT. Digital using only CMYK


P02c // Spatial Variations Tuesday, Mar 31

After our discussions Tuesday, each of you should be able to self-assess how the spaces in your joints are activated, operated, and demostrative of the variations inherent to your joint. Think about how you gain control over the spatial potential within your aggregation. How does your joint want to aggregate? What are the spaces inherent to that aggregation? How do you assess primary, secondary, and tertiary spaces? How do you begin to break up large spaces into a SPATIAL MATRIX?


/ P01b Aggregation ITERATION

Students should iterate their AGGREGATES with a focus on spatial variation inherent to the joint, the aggregation of that joint, and the volumetric constraints. Students should also be mindful of how the aggregation can blur ORIENTATION, remove itself from A BASE, be INFINITE IN ITS AGGREGATION, and DEMONSTRATE PRIMARY, SECONDARY and TERTIARY spaces WITHIN.

Remember that this is not about creating a "tower" or a "building" but about contracting space using a single joint system. Each aggregation should form on its own, as the material warrants. Do not merely "connect" towers together, but rather INTEGRATE space, connection, and joints together.

Either start over, re-work, strengthen, or add on to your existing 36" x 36" x 36" aggregation. While this is a QUALITY iteration, students should note that this will be the foundation aggregation on which they build over the weekend, as we extend UP AND OUT!!!

MAKE GOOD CHOICES!!! YOU GOT THIS!!!


/ P01c SYSTEMS DIAGRAM

Once you complete your aggregate iteration, you must EDIT your existing diagrams. Remember to CENTER each diagram on the sheet of paper. Include YOUR NAME, MY NAME, ARCH 1412_SP15, AND THE TITLE OF THE DRAWING (plan view, side view 01, side view 02, etc.)

Added LAYERS:

01_Construction Lines @ smallest line weight (0.05-0.1)
02_ AXIS (max 2) show using arrows, think about how the axis in the diagram demostrate the larger organization of the diagram, and thus aggregation itself.
3_FILLS Using grey boxes, call out your primary, secondary, and tertiary spaces
Primary Space (1 per elevation) @ 70% opacity
Secondary Spaces (2-4 per elevation) @ 50% opacity
Tertiary Spaces (5-7 per elevation) @ 30% opacity


/ LOGISTICAL REMINDERS

_Make sure to clean up after yourselves when using the shop = be mindful
_Do not treat the shop assistants as your personal assistant, but as your safety help = do your project yourself
_Come prepared with sketches or marked materials = be prepared


DELIVERABLES DUE THURSDAY AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS:

_P01b AGGREGATION ITERATION One (1) full aggregation at 36" x 36" x 36" demonstration one (1) joint system - max two (2) materials
_P01c SYSTEMS DIAGRAMS Three (3) elevation diagrams each printed on 11x17, portrait FORMAT. Digital using only CMYK.


P02b // Aggregate Line Thursday, Mar 26

After our discussions Thursday, each of you should be able to self-critique and most importantly SELF-ASSESS which of the three initial joints were your most successful in terms OF A UNIFYING SYSTEM that can be INFINITLY REPEATED to create a larger AGGREGATE.

Students should all think about notions of scale, size, space, and of course, connection. As you move forward with the next exercise, think about a joint design that would allow you to easily add new members during construction. If you are building your aggregate and realize that its stability warrants more members, can your joint be easily added or would you have to start all over? Be efficient with your time, clear in your methods, and rigorous in your INTENT.

EVERYTHING YOU CONSTRUCT FROM THIS POINT ON WILL BE GRADED ON LEVEL OF CRAFT, EXECUTION OF SINGULAR IDEA, AND FINAL CONSTRUCTION. Use architectural tools (x-acto, box cutter, shop, etc) to help insure your craft is EXCELLENT. Be sure and get your shop stickers and feel comfortable to use both the Model Shop and Wood Shop over the weekend.

Concepts: Material exploration, Aggregation, Tectonic logic, forces, form + composition, dimensional sympathy

MATERIALS NOT ALLOWED: Foam, Balsa Wood, Glue (unless laminating members)

Please note, this next assignment has four (4) parts: iteration, aggregation, writing, and diagramming.

Instagram

It is required for ALL students to upload an image of study model that will be pursued further in the three foot aggregate to Instagram no later than Saturday night. This means that all 6 14"x14"x14" study models must be done by Saturday night as well. If any student does not have a way of uploading to Instagram notify Glassell or any of the TAs so that we can arrange a dropbox folder so that you can still upload an image to us by Saturday night.

_Part 01 / P02a Line ITERATIONS

it·er·ateˈitəˌrāt/ noun: iterate; plural noun: iterates

Iterations are thought of as making another pass at a drawing, project, or idea. Different from “repeating,” iterations should demonstrate SOMETHING NEW from its source. An iteration can be large or small and can range from altering the size of the members to better translating ideas of connection in new ways. It’s important to make the distinction between repeating and iterating, as iterations teach you something new!!!!!

After our conversations during studio, you should each be aware of how to make successful design changes to your joints. You may either start from scratch, take apart your initial joints and reuse/reconstruct, or iterate three new versions of one joint in particular.

Iterate three (3) MORE joints that fit in a 14” x 14” x 14” volume. Each joint should be WELL CRAFTED, WELL ORGANIZED, AND THOUGHT THROUGH.


_Part 02 / P02 Writing

Using your sketchbook, take time to jot down yoru ideas about the joint and system you are creating. This will become your BIG IDEA or guiding CONCEPT for your aggregation. You are encouraged to write as you go, via stream of consciousness.

Writing should fill a full spread (two pages) in your sketchbook.


_Part 03 / P02b Line Aggregation

Choose one (1) of your three (3) joint iterations to move forward with. Be sure to choose wisely, noting whether it can be easily added to, aggregated with, and constructed. Begin to aggregate this in a 3’ x 3’ x 3’ (or 36” x 36” x 36”) volume. While your aggregation does not have to fill this volume, it should be at least 36” tall.

It’s important with this exercise to first gather all your materials and then JUST GO, just start aggregating. Don’t worry about having preconceived notions about what the final aggregation will “look like” but rather how efficiently the system is working. Construct, add, keep going. Do not start over and do not look back! You got this!

Be mindful of the following considerations:

How is the bottom different than the top?
How does my system WANT to aggregate?
What is the spatial variation that occurs when aggregating?
How do different scale members add or subtract to the overall system?

MAX TWO (2) MATERIALS, MINIMUM ONE (1)

Think VERTICAL, think RIGID, think SYSTEM, think JOINT, think SIMPLE


_Part 04 / P02b Digital Line Diagrams

Using Adobe Illustrator, develop three (3) line diagrams that demonstrate three (3) DIFFERENT ELEVATIONS of your final aggregation. This means you will do the diagrams LAST. Each diagram should utilize your understanding of line types, line weights, arrows, scale, and proportion to demonstrate the constructed system of organization your aggregate is forming.

Students may only use one (1) single color in all diagrams. Either CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, or Black). Each diagram should be printed on a single, 11 x 17, portrait formatted sheet and be pinned up sequentially. Be clear on the elevations you choose to diagram!


DELIVERABLES DUE TUESDAY AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS:

_P02a Line ITERATION: Three (3) Joints that demonstrate structural integrity/rigidity and design intent
_P02 WRITING Two page spread of writing, stream of consciousness
_P02b AGGREGATION One (1) full aggregation at 36" x 36" x 36" demonstration one (1) joint system - max two (2) materials
_P02b DIAGRAMS Three (3) elevation diagrams each printed on 11x17, portrait. Digital.



P02a // Line Tuesday, Mar 24

Please see the link on the sidebar for more detailed information regarding the assignment.

CONCEPTS //

Introduction to Tectonics / Diagramming
Layer and Assembly
Materiality
Connection
Linear Members
Joint Control
Structural Integrity / Stability
Shear Joint Control
Composition
Aggregation / Modulation
Dimensional Sympathy

OBJECTIVES //

Line (n):noun
1. a long, narrow mark or band
2. a positioning or movement of a thing or things that creates or appears to follow a line
3. a direction, course, or channel
4. a manner of doing or thinking about something

Phase 01 will introduce the notions of tectonics as seen through physically joining materials to form a structural shear joint. The notion of the “line” will be reinforced by the shear force, focusing on ideas of shifting in the vertical direction. Methods of testing will include LAYERING materials to form an aggregated structure of one specific joint.

JOINTS //

Any linear or planer material, found or bought, that demonstrates LINEARITY in terms of LINE. No curves or angles may be employed, nor pre-manufactured hardware. All elements of the joint are to be made by the student. Students my use the same material on multiple joints.

_Joint 01: One single material @ 14” x 14” x 14” volume
_Joint 02: Two materials @ 14” x 14” x 14” volume
_Joint 03: One or two materials @ 14” x 14” x 14” volume

Each joint should join a minimum of three (3) members and a maximum of five (5) and demonstrate at least two (3) moments of connection.

Does each member need to be the same size?
Does the joint provide an air space?
Do the members sit flush?
WHY? WHY? WHY?

DIAGRAMMING //

USING BOTH DIGITAL AND ANALOGUE METHODOLOGY, students will oscillate between diagramming and making their joints. Diagramming will be employed to assist in generating the spacing, frequency, and modulation of the joint two-dimensionally.

Each of your iterative diagrams should ONLY EMPLOY LINES, however, one should investigate different thickness, sizes, and lengths to further develop the complexity of your joint.

Use your sketchbook to help brainstorm. As diagrams are GENERATIVE TOOLS, use these to help you develop your JOINT DESIGNS.

_Three (3) sketchbook diagrams
_Three (3) 1:1 scale trash paper diagrams (sharpie markers!)

DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS //

1. How many members will my joint use? Why?
2. How close should the members sit?
3. How does the joint remain strong in any orientation?
4. What sizes/lengths of members should I employ? Why?
5. How many points of connection are needed to solidify the joint?
6. Can my joint sit by itself in any orientation?
7. Is there a clear top or bottom? Is that important?

RESEARCH //

Each of the following examples should be researched per student and be sketched in your sketchbook.

1. lap joints
2. shear joints
3. bolted joints
4. spline joints
5. tongue and groove joints
6. shear connections

SUGGESTED MATERIALS //
