Project 1 cube

  1. 1. 1 SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE, BUILDING & DESIGN Modern Architecture Studies in Southeast Asia (MASSA) Research Unit Bachelor of Science (Honours) (Architecture) BUILDING MATERIALS [ARC 1512] ________________________________________________________________________ Project 1a: “Space Out- the material CUBE” Marks : 30% Duration: 4 weeks Submission date: 02/05/14,Friday at C09 Lobby Sources: http://matsysdesign.com/tag/voronoi/ http://www.ceciliadetorres.com/exhibitions/enlarge/line_-_plane_-_volume_sculpture_1944-2006/707 http://gamedev.stackexchange.com/questions/59340/how-to-implement-marching-cube-algorithm-for-rendering-clouds http://www.creativediyersclub.com/2012/04/wooden-openwork-cube-pendant-light.html Introduction Building material is any material which is used for a construction purpose.This project is designed as an introduction to building materials that are commonly used in the local construction industry. Students are required to construct cubes using the listed material to explore and understand building making in relation to materials, design considerations of material according to their properties and to finally understand how the intrinsic forms, limitations and boundaries of a material factor in a design process. Objective of Assignment • The task of this project is to design and build two separate paper and wood cube to define a volume of 12”x12”x12” inch space Learning Outcomes • Recognize how intrinsic forms, limitations and boundaries of a material factor in a design process. • Effectively work with a material in line with design requirements • Be able to express a material within its contextual application
  2. 2. 2 Project Description Students are required to design and build TWO cubes: A. Paper Cube B. Wood Cube Objective: The task of this project is to design and build a 12”x12”x12” inch paper and wood cube. Paper Cube Wood Cube Selecting one of the following materials: paper cardstock chipboard corrugated cardboard paper tubes homosote ….. or anything that can be categorised as PAPER Select one of the following materials: Balsa wood plywood MDF Masonite …or just about anything that is WOOD The cube should be produced with this one material and a fastening system [glue, nails, screw, rope etc.] at the student’s discretion. The function of the cube is to define the volume of a 12”x12”x12” inch space. This does not mean to fill or to entirely engulf the volume simply define it. Issues to consider are: Module of material and waste How to work with a material How to turn a corner How to join materials How to express a material How the intrinsic forms, limitations and boundaries of a material factor in a design process Reviews Reviews: There will be two reviews of the cube. The first will be a working pin‐up review. Its requirements will be a 6"x6"x6" study model and a working analytique A2 board containing: Date: 14/04, week4 • plan 1:50 • section 1:50 • elevation 1:50 • assembly diagram [sequence] scale to be determined The second will be the final project review. Its requirements will be the final full scale cube exquisitely fabricated and an A2 analytique board containing: Date: 28/04, week6 • plan 1:50 • section 1:50 • elevation 1:50 • assembly diagram [sequence] scale to be determined
  3. 3. 3 Submission Requirement A. Final full scale Paper and Wood cube exquisitely fabricated and an A2 analytique board containing: • plan 1:50 • section 1:50 • elevation 1:50 • assembly diagram [sequence] scale to be determined B. A CD ‐ MARKED WITH THE PROJECT AND STUDENT NAME ‐ CONTAINING A PDF OF THE BOARDS AND 3 HIGH RES, CLEANED UP PHOTOS OF THE FINAL CUBE AND ONE PHOTO OF THE PROCESS CUBE[S] Assessment criteria Assessment: The cube will be graded based upon: Craft 25% Modularity 25% Adherence to dimensions 25% Design + Ingenuity 25% References 1.
