  5. 5. DeConstructivism Frank Gehry Frank Gehry’s Deconstructivism consists of breaking down simple objects of geometry and rearranging them according to forces on site and his own intuition. Multiple model * studies address light conditions, scale, activation of site surroundings and appearance to the everyday user. Materials play an important role in expressing sculptural qualities of his sketches which are integral part of his designs. His intuitive sketches allow a certain degree of interpretative freedom in modelling process.Development of ‘Styles’ *Deconstructivism De-ConstructedGehry Residence ORIGNAL HOUSE * EXTENSION + + =Simple Suburban House Materials Collision+DeformationGuggenheim MuseumBilbao Sculpture to activate and regenerate the city Ideas to express a gesture * of ‘Welcoming’ the visitor/ Pause before further revelation + = Materials as a form of expressing multiple thoughts FUJI KINDERGARTEN a circular running track!!! I can see my friends in the courtyard.... Tezuka Architects TOKYOJAPANDENSITYFREEDOMLOOPPLAY TACTILITY of form and surface ROOF PLAN EXPERIENCE of a real environment LEARNING through work+play PLAYING while growing up COMMUNITY binding and fostering creativity FREEDOM from rules and conventions the roof doubles the play area, encouraging the kids to explore the skylights and enjoy wow! a circular school.... their learning..... where’s the box??? a seamless dead ends... no hierarchies Mr. and Mrs. Tezuka look....its our classroom below.....flooded with light.. zelkowa trees... I can easily climb them from this height .things look so different from up here... ...and im not afraid of falling .and there’s our teacher...!! hey my feet are dangling...and I can see our classroom from here.... and also feel the breeze....this is fun.. the existing trees on the site were deliberately preserved and the roof goes through them.....the oval was modulated to accommodate them. it encourages the child to explore, in an otherwise balustrades which allow the feet urban environment but not the child’s body to pass doors that can completely open up section showing built mass and the tree void skylights and ladders to help the students access the roof...relationships are understood ..between light and surface, roof and ladder... doubling of work and play area school will be no box, no empty rooms... a process of experiential learning, fun and play.... :) :) :) a never ending learning curve 1. The form of the building itself is a tool of learning. 2. An antithesis of the crammed spaces in Tokyo, a simple spacious form. 3. A complex program, made possible by simplicity of form. 4. Flexible spaces. 5. A natural environment. gardens with rabbits and goats!!! come lets feed them... and dont forget the goat cheese...! where will the principal sit???... I fear going to his office... :) ! :) ! She will be amongst you, My teacher will be up there! always so no hierarchy.... Looking at me always.... :( the garden is easily accessible by seamless merging of the inside and outside... the form itself motivates the children to run, explore and learn in the process... the form itself is the function
