drawing exercise work

a zoom in on layer 2 looking into the relationship of the foam and the plaster in just one layer than the whole model

Maquette No.2

This is from the 'Make your own balloon' kit. The kit is now empty and I have failed to make one "Balloon".
I dont think this really fits what im doing but maybe it will inspire someone else?

Maquette No.1

Out of about 30 photos this is the only one without a blur on it. I dont get along with cameras.
I am trying to explore linking differently sized spaces, some of which you can see inside some you cannot.
Unfortunately with standard balloons there is not a great variance in size.

paper tensegrity

a first attempt of a foldable paper structure following the tensegrity principle

tensegrity model

this could be covered with cloth and would immediately become a foldable structure/space


not the nicest model because it's just in paper and it's more about finding the right technique.

For Tamim- Lamination

It may be of interest for you to look at a number of different lamination techniques.
Charles & Ray Eames developed specific plywood laminations in their production of legsplints.

Bernard Cache, who will lecture at the AA next Tuesday 4th December, also developed laminated surfaces with specific topological and surface characteristics.

For Friedrich- Etienne Jules-Marey

Could you think about how expansion and contraction can be represented or configured... the sequence of spaces, both temporally and physically? Check out Etienne Jules-Marey- how movement is capted both in chronophotographs and drawings. The book Passion for the Trace is also on the reading list.

Balloon idea

using a balloon filled with water to demonstrate a similar effect of spaces changing and depending of each other



klein bottle

nice example!! It looks like my plan and also shows the moment outside becomes inside.

initial idea

not shure if the text is readable
but basically the idea is that according to the location and the type of inhabitation the structure and space changes and deforms in scale and shape

section of module

first section study of module space

first section

horizontal section, not finished yet


i have the same problem - ioseb
colour changes and
line drawings and line text is not visible

anyone an idea why

the sequence of a person moving through the space in plan and section

i am now looking at the light comming into the spaces according to the different wall thicknesses
and the transperency aspect of seeing other people again because of the material and wall thickness

1st image: i have flattened a section of the ramp leading up, grounded it and compared the space size with the depth

2nd image: again using the flattened section but with the actual form - giving it a scale and zooming in on an interesting connection point

not shure if the drawings on the left are visable

first image shows my ide how i got from different spaces connected to each other to this one form

the second shows a plan, and several sections through it

the third is a plan and section but only overground

Section through part of second collage

sections from a 1cm2 big piece just got a 120m long building

the cross section suggests the different levels of my building
starting at the ramp in the front all the different levels are connected to each other
the walls in the floorplan lead the visitor in certain directions
reducing most of the edges to one point is characteristically for my cube

The Space House Kiesler

This text by Frederick Kiesler is an good reference for thinking about space and it's use or inhabitation. I'd like you all to read the paragraph "social" carefully (page 3).
