This is the overall scheme of my BA 3rd year final project Parallel Habitats. 1:200 massing model and final drawings at 1:200 and 1:100.
The project is driven by the co-existence of humans and non-humans. The building is a co-living scheme for post-graduate students, which is raised on stilts. It lets light onto the ground below which is entirely allocated to non-humans; inhabited by wild vegetation and different habitats.
The building was driven by the analogy of a tree canopy; in how it allows light onto the forest floor, and also in the spatial quality of the building. This idea of feeling like you're in a forest was a key focus in this model.
This is a 1:20 corner section from my BA 3rd year final project Parallel Habitats.
This model focussed on communicating the relationship between the different spaces. It's multi-media, so to demonstrate how the different materials look and feel in relation to each other.
This is a 1:5 junction detail from my BA 3rd year final project Parallel Habitats. This is a junction between a walkway and the stilted superstructure of the building. I tried to make a design that is simple to construct and deconstruct. The walkway is intended to appear to be almost floating, as well as let through as much light as possible on to vegetation below.
1:20 sectional detail model. A housing project on a site with an existing building. The model focusses on the junction between the old and the new. - Second Year BA
Plaster cast of a 'public performance space'. - First Year BA
1:500 plaster cast massing site model. Emphasises the existing building on site which is key to design process. - Second Year BA
'Stop Over' project. Designing a parasitic, temporary living space for a music artist. The brief had a limit of 20m2 - so I created a 6m2 room that moved and slotted into a different room's furniture. - First Year BA
Concrete programme models made during the first lockdown. Using materials I found in skips. This model won an award: 'B.15 At Home Award 2020, Award for outstanding use of modelmaking in design work produced from home during the Covid-19 pandemic. Independently Judged by Bjarke Ingels Group, SimpsonHaugh Architects & HENN Architects.' - First Year BA
