The Scenario

As you know we started the project by working with object to object relationship and we designed The Thingy. In further step, we worked on the thingy again but also we build up a scenario. We are asked to specify our design decisions around the subjects and their relations with each other and spaces. The important questions in this stage are Who?, How? and What spatial properties?. My main design decision is controlling visual relationship. Therefore, when I created my scenario I thought that this visual relation can control by user. First, I decided to have one subject. This subject is a man living alone ad who need storage because this man is a graffiti writer. This thingy does not just provide visual relationship conditions but also provide storage, two different working space and also helps to get different light conditions and air circulation.

Before start main work, the graffiti writers work with pencils and pens, they make some sketches or illustrations and then they mostly work on canvases so alongside of pen and pencils they also need their spray paints for practices. Therefore, they need different working spaces. Therefore, The Thingy has steel grid panels that divide these working spaces and also differentiate indoor and outdoor. Also the user of The Thingy can put his spray paints on this steel grid and also some of his sketch papers. When he put all spray paints he has a solid surface between these two spaces and when he change their density and also location in this steel grid he has visual relationship between these working spaces and also with same things he can have different light and view conditions. And also while he is working with canvases he uses spray paints, therefore some exploded surface in the thingy has also help to put the spray paints and sometimes he can use these surfaces as a steps because they use stairs to reach the top of the canvases.

Here are my sketches that show The Thingy’s process so far.

And here are the draft model of my Thingy.

The Thingy

Hi!! Our second semester has already begun. Our project is designing a house but our start is quite different because we ‘rewind’ everything.

In our first assignment what is expected to us is researching and designing object to object relationship in the house by working with geometry, scale and tectonics of surfaces. This object is supposed to be important for the house. But why and how it is important will find out later. And the relationships of the surfaces with each other, with surfaces of other objects in the house and also with human body as an objects will be varied. While I was searching I observed that by differentiating the level of surfaces we can control visual relations, we can increase or decrease the level of enclosure or with subtraction we can create a different kind of object to object relationship. Here is how I reach these ideas.
