An exercise in model making with an emphasis on creating a 3‐dimensional space using a 2-dimensional inspiration. Starting with a 34” x 22” spread of lines of varying weights, lengths, and directions, I selectively replicated some of the lines and infilled a few areas with solid elements. The flat model was then dissected into several components and reconstructed into a 3‐dimensional experience on a sloping 24” x 16” site model.
Using multiples planes and connecting element, I reconfigured the pieces into polyhedron components for the final model. The piece was used as a separate space from the larger model.
The site model incorporates multiple earth fault elements such as strike‐slip, normal or thrust/reverse fault to create a series of inclined planes.
A 24” x 16” site model constructed of cardboard. Since the base was quite large, the ground plane broken into two masses by an exaggerated rift.
A 3-dimensional experience on inclined planes. Using pieces of the flat model, polyhedron components were created and merged to form larger spaces. Separated by the rift in the ground plane, the two massing were connected by the remaining linear components of the model.
