Second round at the site model. This is the overall site model focusing on the mountains and the valleys
The first image is showing the container together but broken up in its pieces. It was a way to show how it can start as the container.
The model below focuses on the kitchen as the focus. It is more spread out then the living area one to allow for more community spaces. The container out on the side is the container that will be given to the community.
This model below focuses on nature. It allows some of the spaces to be near each other but some to be separate in order to be involved in your surroundings. I want you to have you experience nature as you go from space to space.
Today my group worked on coming up with a scheme. Our scheme is to break up the container (s) into different segments depending on program and also depending on the family and a few of the parts of each container will go to the community in order to build the community spaces ( water collection, fish hatchery, developmental area, etc.). The community will build these spaces. The houses will have a sort of template that they have. There will be different versions – focusing on different aspects that a family would enjoy ( nature, kitchen, living together).
Our team worked through the symptoms we had created and started to develop them into ideas for the container.
We first diagramed the symptom, then diagramed the opposite of the symptom, then related this to the container and then related it to the site. These were all in forms so we could develop ideas. The next step was to model from there to develop the ideas to more complexity.
After diagramming the symptoms in a few different ways to represent the container differently I modeled the ideas to better represent the ideas in container form. Modeling the ideas helped me put a more direct container or site understanding to the forms.
Through the symptoms that we created as a way to break down the phenomenology, I then diagramed the symptoms. The first diagram which is the bottom layer is a diagrammatic representation of the symptom. From there I layer on top a more relatable diagram dealing with a idea in the shipping container.
For the team part of this project Emer, Eliot, Racquel and I are in a group. We are focusing on the healing process. Emer focused on rehabilitation from alcoholism. I focused on the Waldorf education system and the theories behind this. These were the two main concepts that we pulled together to create a home for people to heal. This home will not just be for people with alcoholism, but it will be for an entire family to heal. There is a lot of abuse and other issues going on in this community that need healing. This house will incorporate aspects of the healing process in order to allow these people to create their own future. The Waldorf education will be included in the spaces and how we create the spaces.
The center part of the model will be the original container and then the pieces coming off of it wil be pieces for people to build off of. I want to focus with this model on circulation and closed and open spaces. The skin will help transform the structure to a more permanent space that they can build off of and live in.
Another scheme for to spiritualize is working with the land. I want the land to pull into the architecture. The architecture will be built from the shipping container still but I think it should work with void and closed spaces. I want the open and closed spaces to allow nature to be prevalent and allow them to understand the natural processes that go on around them. The land and the topography will change with the structure for this concept and I think that this could really benefit the society and the people involved in the society.
The irregular shape will add some room for own creativity and understanding of their needs.
I am working with a main idea of to spiritualize. This work means in regards to this project that the people of Pine Ridge will be able to develop themselves and grow themselves through the nature.
The idea for the shipping container is that the container is provided to them and then they will build off of it. There will be ways of attachments in order to create a more permeant space with their hands. I am discovering different ways that this can happen and different forms that can be made through this process.
This drawing focuses on the seasons and the wind affecting the building. I want this structure to built and can move. The people in Pine Ridge need to be able to experience all the nature around them and for this to happen they cannot just live in a box. The shipping container would be what they started with and then they would build from there. They would create their own architecture.
This model is to mesh. The clay model was more of a direct interpretation of the verb to mesh. The wooden model was a transformation. I used different materials to show the changes. I set a Rockite pour into the wood carved piece to show the morphing of natural and man made. The Waldorf school focuses on allowing children to be one with nature. With all of the technology and man made things around it is is hard to keep this concept prevalent. It is crucial to keep these children ( and adults) in Pine Ridge accustomed to nature in order for them to appreciate their lives and their surroundings.
This model focuses on to collide
I came to this verb because in the Waldorf Education they focus on ideas being different and allowing the students to develop themselves and figure out themselves. This might not be the same as other students develop and their ideas might be different, but they focus on understanding differences and teaching the children to do this.
This model focuses on Exposure to Natural Processes
It is important for the children and adults to be one with nature and how nature develops. When people develop they usually become farther apart from nature due to modern technologies. This system focuses on enhancing their relationship with nature and their exposure to the processes through nature.
