PROJECT SIX

EXERCISE 6.1

“Exercise 6 will introduce the building facade as a significant element of architecture. The facade is the first threshold of a building, articulating the exchange of interior and exterior and often making a statement about the program, site or ‘critical’ context, expressed in materials and form. It is an important part of a building’s entry sequence and, as such, will provide us with additional opportunities to study section and sequence in relation to threshold and spatial hierarchy. Adding to the phenomenal issues studied in Exercise 5, Exercise 6 will introduce issues of materiality and light.”

EXERCISE 6.2

“Exercise 6.2 builds on EX6.1 where you developed your facade in relation to materiality, light, space, sequence and threshold. You will make use of basic rendering and post-processing techniques in EX6.2 to further study your facade design. Accurate lighting in the digital rendering allows study of the effects of space and light as they may be experienced in the built environment. Both abstracted and realistic indication of material help in exploring and developing the relationship of materials to spatial hierarchy, sequence, and threshold.”
