2D Square Calisthenics
A visual represnetation project, of a day-to-day object or element selected by the student and reinterpeted in an architectural context. To display the steps taken to form the final product.
The object or element selected was the Barcode. Analyzing the basic language of the barcode, systematically represented data by varying the widths and spacings of parallel lines, and may be referred to as linear or one-dimensional. Translating these principals into architectural princples, following with the application of spacing of lines, with different widths and directions.
3D Square Calisthenics
A continuation of the 2D Square Calisthenics, taking the next step and progressing the selected element we chose and developing into a series 3D form through the medium of model making.
As the models progress, and develop from the element, the final presentation was to reform an abstract artwork from the Final model made.
