Architecture/Movement/Text - MA Project

  1. 1. architecture/movement/text This project is not simply about a public or built space, it is not even about 134-146 Curtain Road, it is about learning, as a designer, the system of movement, passage and meaning that is governed by architectural form. This project is a process of learning and communicating information to the designer, the architect and the reader. This project is about taking one space, and learning all its uses, functions and forms in parallel to the users and visitors that move in and around it. This project is work-in-progress, it has no ending.

  3. 3. introduction This book is about information, lines, dots, text and fields of data. understanding not necessarily for every designer, but for me, There is no colour, no expensive printing finishes, no overload of both as an individual and a designer. There in lies its generic graphical layering, and no conclusive answers. Most importantly, application, not by proclaiming the ‘right’ way to approach this book is work in progress, it represents a process, a mapping designing for an architectural or public space, but an of experience, understanding and knowledge of one subject, one alternative means to realise space. area, one space in particular, in short, i have focused my MA project on a public and built space called Curtain House, 134-146 There is no specific product, nor is it overlayed with Curtain Road, London EC2a 3AR. unnecessary graphical elements, there are no conclusive answers as to how designers should be creating a ‘generic’ As a process this book is not governed or determined by signage/information systems for any public or architectural conclusive answers, what it does seek to establish is a route, a space. It is my belief that all space is unique, it has many uses process, a method of working within architectural space. A and users, and should therefore be treated as one space rather method that explores the nature, language and most importantly, than trying to make all applications generic, we should strive the usage of a space by its occupants, because only then as for unique systems of envisioned information by studying each designers can we hope to communicate a system of design that space individually. Only then may we as designers be more not only supports the architectural space, but reflects the nature easily accepted in to the discipline of architecture. of the space. In order to achieve this I have set about establishing as many details about the building as I could, so that i may comprehend the building through my eyes as a designer. The process has inevitably become the actual project; to visualise information. What you will read, view and interpret from this book is simply various systems of analysis and data concerning the building its occupants, deliveries, visitors, localised area and so on. This book is more of a tool, a guideline to enable an
  4. 4. architecture engaged_movement_third Curtain House consists of four upper floors, a ground floor, and a By learning about these areas you may be able to understand basement. It has one lift that can carry a maximum of six people, whether these areas communicate well together as one space, a stair well that runs from the basement to the top floor. Each or whether there could be improvement; whether the floor differs in engaged space, movement space, and third space. importance of the movement space could be shifted to the third There are different variants in the amount of people that work space, to enable better communication, both physiologically and move through each floor and office space, and it is these and informatively? variables that need to be recorded, and understood, in order to comprehend how each space is used. Engaged space, consists of space that is permanently inhabited by occupants of the building, within the office/studio space. Movement space, is concerned with the areas that allow passage in and around the building, such as the lift and stair wells. Recording these spaces allows us to record what area may denote movement, and to what extent the frequency of that movement exists in specific parts of building. Third space, is actually concerned with ‘non-space’. A space that exists as a direct parallel to the movement space, and yet adds nothing new to the experience of the movement. Such as corridors, hallways, doors, landings, intermediate landings, and so on. These areas, although important to the right of passage, add nothing, they are merely corridors of passage to allow the user to move from point A to B.
  5. 5. rendered perspectives 01 [wireframe+flat] The floor and area plans are a crucial part of any public or built space, and although I have re-drawn the floor plans of Curtain House in this book to establish areas within the building that determine engaged, movement and third space, they act simply as the beginning of my interpretation of this space. In the following section I have created my own 3-dimensional renders of the building, including just the company names, lifts and stairs (where indicated), and studio spaces. These help determine where everything sits next to each other, establishes a language for the building, and enables you the reader to look at the building in another perspective, not necessarily an architectural one, but one from the eye of a designer who is understanding the space. Admittedly it is presented to you on a mere flatland of static paper, but it is an alternative approach and technic to present the floor plans with a visual representation of space and form on a page. Creating and rendering my own Curtain House has helped me confirm where companies sit above one another, it has allowed me the freedom to move in and around the space (on screen), but all the same it is the allusion of movement that is important in order to visualise the building. Even though I know the building, the important point is that you the reader probably does not, but you might understand it a little better by viewing the next section.
  6. 6. continued process 1 There is nothing special about Curtain House, 134-146 Curtain There is a lot more that I would like to have established within Road, it is not a spectacular construction of architecture, it does my research for this book, elements that I think would add not make any statements, but there is room for improving the clarity to its context. Mapping the movements of occupants interior of the building, this is the problem that I identified. Since within their particular spaces, and the building throughout a this project began the actual reception has been refurbished, and one week period would be of interest to this project. I think it repositioned by the front door, sitting opposite this new reception, would be important to narrow it down to the individual users of instead of mirrors, is a white washed wall. There are new doors, the building, record their every movement, so that I may the lifts’ interior is next to be refurbished, and all the completely understand the way in which each person uses the intermediate landings outside the lift on all floors is to be space. Possibly even interviewing them about their thoughts on re-decorated. Having been in discussion with the Landlord about the builidng itself, how they get there? how they feel when this project, I have actually been asked by them to consider they arrive? approaching this building and space as a ‘live’ project after my MA. As discussed in the dissertation, designers are now becoming increasingly more muilt-media literate. To emphasise this i As stated before, this book is work-in-progress, it has no ending. believe the use of an interactive medium to be used within The reason for this is because there are so many more architectural space is perhaps a must rather than a maybe. possibilities that I would like to explore, and luckily dependent on There are so many formats and mediums that could be applied budgets, I might actually be able to. to any space, but those conclusions should only be made after the research and investigation that this project has examined. This project has not only acted as the starting point for developing To follow are suggestions of how various ‘interactive’ mediums my understanding of architectural space and form, with could be implemented for future use as a continuation of this consideration to the input of information design, but has now project. It will show the possibilities of how users could access developed into the core foundation of a real brief, working within information online within the internet, to explore, as I have, the an actual space. space and all its content, stripping away information, observing users routes, visitors, usage of the lift and stairs, observing

Telling the delivery personnel exactly where that secondary platform for this project. You can access this site at the person is in the building. This could be achieved by every moment and view the contents of this book, but eventually I would occupant being given a security card which not only allows like it to become a place where users and visitors can interact access to the building, but also acts as a tracking device for the with the actual building. A site that could allow visitors to the internal signage system. This would mean that someone who building every detail about how to get there, where the entrances has never been to the building before could log in to the system are, where the reception and caretaker is, what floor they will be on entry, or ask the caretaker to do so (maybe by typing in the visiting, where their final destination within the building is, and so recipients name) and then gives the new user or visitor a on. visitors security card which, from that point onwards, updates LED screens that alert the new user to where they (the I also intend to produce a 3-dimensional engine for the web site individual) should be going. Which would update dependent that would work alttle like an intranet system for the building upon where you were in the building, the stairs, the lift and itself, that will allow users and visitors to see the building, all its even alert you if you have taken a wrong turn. Maybe the actual floors, lifts, stairs, offices and studios, and take information about movement of the studios and offices could somehow be the building, how to get to certian floors, by printing out recorded by heat sensors which upload on to a web site and directions with actual 3-dimensional bitmapped views. local system of navigation. This could alert visitors and occupants of where the most activity was being created? Taking into consideration the placement of actual occupants within the building so that if there is certain companies, individual These ideas for systems of navigation have been derived from occupants or departments that have a higher level of visitors or adopting all the data in this book, maybe they would work, deliveries, then there could be a hierachy of information to access maybe there would be technical difficulties, but ultimately this directly about them. For example, if an individual or company book is about understanding space, learning from a space and
  8. 8. continued process 3 how it is use, and then taking all that information and attaching it to a building so that we the designers can address the individual within a space. Making the architectural space interact with the information that is needed by visitors and other users. Many signage systems at the moment do not actually address the individual, they identify a particular place, they point in a general direction, but they are not universal or diverse. What happens if a blind or har dof hearing person visits a building or public space? How do those individuals use the space? how can the designer take all this into account and use the space to envelope every type of individual? This MA is not this book, it is not 134-146curtainroad, it is not about answers or solutions, and it is not about what I put in the exhibition. It is about ideas, content, and questions. Questions that I have asked, and in some cases, suggested solutions. It is about this ‘continued process’ section, it is about where this project could and might progress to. This section, indeed page, should in no way be seen as the conclusion simply because it is the last page of the book. This book is just the beginning of this project. http://www.134-146curtainroad.net
  9. 9. questions how can designers further their understanding of public or built space? what can designers offer architects? how can designers use the form and function of a public or built space in order to reflect a system of communication and information? what can architects learn from the perspective of a designers interpretations of a space? how can designers further their understand of the physiognomic language of space and movement? What happens if a blind person visits a building? or deaf? How do those people use the space? how can the designer take all this into account and use the space to envelope every type of individual?
  10. 10. movement users_visitors Architecture is not merely about providing shelter, it is about sounds, or colour according to the weather? time of day? even creating and allowing movement and passage within and around the mood of the individual? public and built spaces. b. once the individual is in the building it is important to When working with a public or built space to design, it is also determine what entrance is most commonly used. If there are important to know not just how the users and the building itself multiple entrances and exits, then you might find it useful to works, but also to have an awareness of how users, visitors and find the one most frequently used, in order to establish where delivery persons travel to, and approach the building upon their the hierarchy of information should have dominance. arrival. c. there may be many floors or even different units to a site. To follow I will elaborate this through simple diagrams, providing with Curtain House, there are four floors, but there are many statistical data that will reflect the natural course in which users different companies within each floor. All vary in size, and and visitors approach a space and move around it. There are frequency of visitors and deliveries. However, there are two several elements of criteria we must establish through the methods of getting up and down to the necessary floors, the lift process of understanding the space: and the stairs. Again, by determining the frequency of both, you will be able to deduce where the necessary areas of design and a. if the majority of people, everyday users, use a form of public information will need to concentrate upon. transport to travel partly or in its entirety to the site, then we must establish that route, understand the method they use. Try to determine how successful or stressful those journey’s are for the individual. The result of these findings may enable you, the designer, to consider using a system of colour, smell, photography, art or sound into a signage system, in order to create a space that encompasses a physiological ambience. Maybe it would be possible to create a system that changed

  24. 24. stairs-floors frequency Similarly to the examination of the lift, this section simply outlines the floor positioning and variable time rate that corresponds to each company on every floor using the stairs as a means for getting to each from the entrance of the building. If it was felt necessary, one could examine this further to establish exactly how long it takes to move from point A (the entrance) to point B (the destination), by asking occupants, visitors or delivery personnel of various sex and ages to record there times and movement over a period of time. This would help determine what percentage of people actually used the stairs, and how long it took them to move through each floor. Also examining use of light and colour throught these passages, because visitors and delivery personnel are going to be most influenced by these corridors and elevations, and so lighting and general appearence is important in order to create an ambience of movement and space that is encapsulated within each section of the building.

  27. 27. lift-floors frequency Dependent on how long a user will wait for the lift to arive at there destination within the building, this simple chart registers a numeric value to the journey between each and every floor. These values and not exact timings, because the lifts movement between floors through each day has no set variable rate. However this does allow the designer to establish whether the lift goes to all floors, how long it takes (roughly), and whethe or not there are express lifts that allow quicker movement from point A (entrance) to point B (destination). Added details about the lift would also benefit the designer: does the lift have a maximum capacity? How is it lite? what are its features? Examinations such as these can be used to help the user engage with information, maybe a screen next to the lift should now offer more information than what floor it is at? It could indicate how many people are in the lft, what floor it is stopping at next, how long it will take to get to there position, and so on.

  29. 29. movement/users_deliveries This section examines the entrance, movement, and usage around the building of delivery personnel, and visitors to companies within Curtain House. These two factors are two important when observing the buildings usage and passage, because they are perhaps unfamiliar with the layout of the building, the correct entrance (given that many buildings have separate entrances for delivery personnel), or even the whereabouts of the reception, stairs or lift. Further investigations could establish a record of frequencies regarding visitors and deliveries over a one week period. This would establish how many visitors and delivery people visit each office, how many use the lift or stairs; which would ascertain which route was most frequently used, and therefore determine where the most dominant form of design should sit or be used within the building. [• = one delivery]
  30. 30. total deliveries/entrance/device all floors_deliveries recorded on 28.10.00 Observations such as these enable the designer to understand how people, who are not familiar with the space, enter it and use it. This data visualises alot more than just where and how people use the building, because you could examine what companies they are visiting in particular, see how frequent those visitors are to the same companies. Find out what business those companies actually follow, which might influence the system of signage for the building; i.e most of the space on the fourth floor is dedicated to music and photography, should the signage be able to feed from this, to reflect the space by sound or photography installations?

  52. 52. architecture/local area mapping This section simply deals with the surrounding area around Curtain House, locating and plotting every tube station, major road, and bus stop (including a bus route listing). Recording this data helps to know the area around a space, how the traffic moves, and is systematically controlled. It also assists in learning how people could get to the building, from which direction, what area, and how long each route takes. This data is also linked to recording the method that users and visitors take to the building. This could easily be extended by charting occupants route to the building; which would help to establish what kind of journey the occupants experience, which relates to what frame of mind they might be in once in the building. The building represents shelter, protection from the elements, it may have heat, or air-conditioning, but it may also be well lite, smell different, have sounds playing upon arrival, anything to try and create an ambience, or a certain mood to influence the way people use and feel about the building.
