Visual harmony by nayandeep

  1. 1. A visual… powerpoint presentation…… Principles of architecture……
  2. 2. UNITY AND HARMONY.
  3. 3. Architecture is a visual art and the buildings speaks for themselves… As here a feel of unity and harmony is being developed… Diamond ring hotel… Dubai
  4. 4. Your action makes you different and your action is to put your idea into reality …..
  5. 5. Arrangement of SIMILAR or RELATED objects in a composition is called thematic unity… Here is an example.. Different pictures on them representing different visual textures… but yet kept in one category as they are similar or related but not same…
  6. 6. A theme however, is a melody that is repeated or on which variations are constructed…. Hillman Curtis places theme almost above every thing else in a design. In his book MTIV (making the invisible visible) he wrote… theme have power… they can communicate so much more than litteral messaging…..
  7. 7. As designers we have an opportunity to Draw attention to theme through our designs…… Without communicating a theme, our design will simply be pretty pictures… a bouquet of roses with no note attached….
  8. 8. GESTALT ANDVISUAL UNITY
  9. 9. A collage may be made entirely from scraps, but we notice the whole composition before going on to examine its component pieces.
  10. 10. ONE of the phenomena Wertheimer investigated was CLOSURE– the tendency to Perceive incomplete forms as complete Just as we join up the Dots to see Implied lines and Constellations Of star.
  11. 11. Closure also acts on negative space, making the areas between elements into New shapes and intrest and meaning to a design.
  12. 12. a grid is a rectilinear arrangement of horizontal and vertical lines, often spaced at regular intervals, like graph paper.
  13. 13. The purpose of the grid is to unify a set of pictures or pages so that they look as if they belong to the same family..
  14. 14. 7key Elementsof Unity 1.Texture 2. Colour 3.Tone 4. Direction 5.Proportion 6. Solid and Void 7. Form and Shape
  15. 15. Design principles are used in architecture to organize or arrange structures to create a successful building or environment. the main motive is to create structures that are visually attractive, user-friendly and environment- friendly. The principle of unity is defined in the way the building is structured to create a visual harmony. unity therefore deals with the arrangement of building materials and building parts (floor, wall, roof, column, beam, etc) to create a good composition.
  16. 16. Ways to achieve unity •Proximity: Elements that are physically close, are considered related. Similarity: Elements that are related should share similar position, size, color, shape, or texture •Repetition and Rhythm: Recurring position, size, color, and use of a graphic element shows unity. When the repetition has a focal point interruption it is considered rhythm. •Theme with variation: Altering the basic theme achieves unity and helps keep interest. .Theme with variation: Altering the basic theme achieves unity and helps keep interest.
  17. 17. Human brain loves a degree of variation and repetition… The human brain always tries to make sense of things and if an obvious pattern cannot be found it will either try to create one or reject the image
  18. 18. Repetition against harmony… Too much repetition may lead to.. Being monotonous ,,,, Over done As a result it may turn boring…

  22. 22. Artists supply minimal information and a few clues ;viewrs provide closure,impos e meaning,and recognise shapes that aren’t really there… Gestalt theory explains how…… We see the value patterns of dark and light shapes underlying a composition…This figure gives you a feel of that Gestalt theory
