DESIGN _ PARIKRAMA

 

COMPOSITION OF ANY DESIGN

A DESIGN BEGINS WITH THE IMMEASURABLE (PSYCHOLOGICAL FUNCTION), MOVES TO THE MEASUREABLE (PHYSICAL FUNCTION) AND FINALLY GOES BACK TO THE IMMEASURABLE                  ….LOUIS I KAHN

IMMEASURABLE AND MEASUREABLE

  • IMMEASUREABLE –
    • AIM AND OBJECTIVE – TO CREATE ATMOSPHERES (REFER SPACE, PLACE AND ATMOSPHERE, JUHANNI PALLASMA, THINKING ARCHITECTURE), SO AS TO FEEL DISCONNECTED FROM THE REAL WORLD AND CONNECTED TO THE CREATED ATMOSPHERE , BY CREATING MYSTERIOUS EXPERIENCE LARGER THAN LIFE, THERE HAS TO BE A CONSTANT DIALOGUE WITH THE FORM AND SPACE THAT ENGAGES YOU AND ELEVATES YOUR FEELINGS AND GIVES YOU A HEIGHTENED EXPERIENCE, THUS CREATING AN EXPRESSION.
      • OBSERVING THE EXPERIENCES IN EVERYDAY LIFE THAT ONE LIKES AND DISLIKES AND UNDERSTANDING THE HIDDEN EMOTION BEHIND AND TRANSFORM THAT EMOTION INTO THE BUILT FORM
      • TYPES OF ATMOSPHERES (REFER ERNO GOLDFINGER) – THE IDEA
        • PLASTIC
        • STRUCTURAL
        • ARCHITECURAL

WHATS A FORM LANGUAGE

 

ABSTRACTION OF THE REAL THAT COMMUNICATES AN EMOTION,OR THE SPIRIT OF A TANGIBLE FORM. HERE THE EMOTION CAN BE CHOREGRAPHED, MEDITATIVE ETC. ITS RELATIONSHIP TO OUR BODY HAS TO BE UNDERSTOOD, AND THE WAY IT ENGAGES US STARTS ANIMATING THE BUILDING LIKE FILM MAKING

 

                CUBOID

  • EXPRESSION OF DIRECTION
  • OUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE FORM

WHATS A SPATIAL LANGUAGE

ABSTRACTION OF THE REAL THAT COMMUNICATES AN EMOTION,OR THE SPIRIT OF A TANGIBLE SPACE.THIS SHOULD DISCONNECT FROM THE REAL TIME AND TAKE YOU TO A TIMELINE CONVINVINGLY WHICH MAY BE TANGIBLE (REAL FORM) OR INTAGIBLE (MUTANT LIKE OR FORMLESS)

 

WHATS AN EXPRESSION

 

THE RE-PRESENTATION OF THE SELECTED ENTITY , IN THE REAL WORLD AND THEN KEEPING THE REST AS MYSTERY

 

WHATS AN ATMOSPHERE

 

 

  • PRINCIPLES OF ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN PROCESS

 

  • REPITITION (RIYAZ) – CONTINUOUS THINKING ABOUT THE ISSUE AND QUESTIONING YOUR INTENT , BY ENGAGIN IN CONVERSATIONS
  • SUBJECTIVITY OF DESIGN – THERE IS NOTHING CALLED AS A WRONG IDEA, ITS JUST THE DEGREE OF EXPRESSION WHICH CAN BE SHALLOW OR MATURE
  • IMPROVISATION –
  • CONTROL
  • UNDERSTANDING CONSTRAINTS
