Properties and Shapes

  2. 2. Introduction<br />Throughout history, many forms of architecture have been <br />designed all over the world and all of them were based on the figure<br /> of elevation.<br /> In order to understand the geometrical composition <br />of figures and the form properties of architecture, there are about <br />74 figures of representative architecture according to M. Chatani <br />who paid attention to characteristic architecture everywhere <br />and expressed them in postcards sized pop-up white card. <br />In that way he created the Origamic Architecture which <br />consists in the use of cutters to get architectural figures as their image.<br />

  4. 4. 74 Pieces of Origamic<br /> Architecture<br />Well-proportioned beautiful Greek architecture, <br />skyscraper towers of Gothic architecture, <br />and modern architecture with a variety of shapes <br />are expressed in the elevation of Origamic Architecture.<br />The elevations of 74 pieces of Origamic Architecture are:  <br />Gothic Architecture<br />Modern Architecture<br />Origamic Architecture<br />

  9. 9. From Properties of Architectural <br />Figures<br />A. Calculated data<br />We calculated the following 6 data, <br />which indicate the characteristics<br /> of architectural figures as follows<br />1. Height of architecture<br />2. Width of architecture<br />3. Skyline deviation of architecture<br />4. Number of blocks<br />5. Number of openings<br />6. Occupancy of architecture<br />
  10. 10. From Properties of Architectural <br />Figures<br />B. Principal component analysis<br />1.The rhythm property is expressed <br />by the arrangement <br />or distribution of plural <br />openings or the continuous <br />motif of the walls. Is the repetitive<br />use of a group of visual elements, <br />at least three times,to establish a<br /> recognizable “pattern.” <br />
  11. 11. From Properties of Architectural <br />Figures<br />2.The silhouette property is expressed<br /> by the outer outline of the figures. <br />For instance, Gothic architecture <br />with high towers would have a strong <br />silhouette property.<br />3.The symbol property is mainly <br />evaluated by the area and the<br /> geometrical characteristics <br />of openings.<br />
  12. 12. Conclusions<br />Origamic Architecture as a simple expression <br />of architectural figures is suitable for the<br />database of architectural forms.<br />2. Any architectural form has 3 properties such<br /> as rhythm, silhouette and symbol. <br />The rhythm property indicates the range<br /> of complexity, the silhouette property is<br /> that of the outer form, and the symbol <br />property concerns to the design of the openings<br />
