Below are models from the very first project in first year. A beach hut sat on a turntable that the user can adjust to get the sun all day long.
Margaret Esherick House
Building half of the Margaret Esherick house by Louis Kahn.
Designing a house with certain constraints.
My absolute favourite model from first year. We were put into groups to create a replica of our site to scale. Each group was assigned materials and we were given wood and concrete. We created wooden blocks for each building, shaping them to scale. Then, for certain buildings we used a plastic former to create a mould for the concrete.
Different concept model buildings in the site that we created.
Initial Concept Models
These were the first models I made for the site above. They were not to scale.
This beach hut model was for the summer project given to us in the transition between first and second year. It reuses recycled materials like drift wood for the exterior and recycled plastic for the interior. It forms a geometric wave and additionally acts as an educational landmark, showcasing the plastic in our oceans.
