I care about 0.5mm.
In the words of Long Tran 'It's not 'About', It's 'Specific'. If It's 'About', It isn't Architecture'

skylight constructed and in place - cob wall roofing on. landscaping to come.

started on 1/20 model - other members of the group don't have scalpels.
other members of the group don't care about 3mm.

oh my days.


i killed my model!±


i really do care! i might have to re-do the entire roof section because of this!@££
[i might be joking here...]


skylight in place.


prepping for the model photography lecture - the skyline of all those models on the table from the light of the projector was amusing - hehe



oh yes HE KNOWS to pick up my model. rekognaaaaiiiiizzzzz

umm.. i'm too tired to say anything else.

PRESICION model _01.
first F R E S H arch model, 1:100
first model so im going ALL OUT on this one.
also have a 1:20 detail section on the go...

COBTUN House, Worcester [RIBA Prize for sustainability 2005, built 2000/2001]



TENSE!


madness room layout.


ohh the crispness.




btw this has taken me AGES [ne ai-chan]
the base contour took about 6 - 10 hours as i decided to do it the 'let's save on card usage' way...
that DAMNED great wall of Worcester took AGES as well - that double walling was a bugger let alone the curvy champhered top edge crazy wavy at the end WALL!@@£$%%^&

*BREATHE*

yo and here's some of Long Tran's steez - member of 'ARCHITECTURE 5000' - a elite collective of mad late night jam session [to do with architecture] up and coming students. will fill in more about that at a later date.

... Eames House structural frame [+ Charles]



the double height studio and store rooms [right]


Eames himself!

yes we were working till very late - left the studio about 21:00 which is the longest so far on the course [we usually are chucked out at 8:30 - CAN YOU BELIEVE IT! its a damn outrage - we NEED 24hr openness]

oh and btw NEVER leave models on your desk. Models are NEVER safe.

TECH NO WEEK
welcome to technoweek TEKNOROJI no UEEKU

leds + concrete + conductive reinforcing CHECK.

crazy drawing machines that draw 3m away from input x3 CHECK

Brighton Uni ARCHITECTURE BA + INTERIOR DESIGN BA 1st and 2nd years:


+ive conducting grid


-ive conducting grid

both grids bent to form base of undulations.


test section LED's cast in @ diff levels to see what looks best...
'just on the surface' / 'surface ±' wins.

very hard to execute tho.


Lights OFF


LIGHTS ON


きれいな! any comments that address supposedly non functioning LED units in this photo not welcome.




psyche [<--- how does one spell that] some contact points of the LED legs to solder connection to the grid THE GRID IS DOWN weren't clean therefore no connection.




the clay mould to be placed at base of formwork block.

result - by the way this was concieved and made within 5 days
[is that good or bad]





some LED units didnt emerge but the concrete was soft enough to be erroded easily by rubbing.

it's interesting though, literally an 'Emerging Grid' - Ito nuff inspiration.

also quite a difficult subject to photograph.

the other light [had to make two]



it's all about PROCESS 'the process'

the reminance of japan
ROLLEI 35mm photos develop'd SHITA!

so i'll scan them in and have them up soon.

meanwhile japan's road transport people think everyone can drive action movie style...




crazy japanese billboards are EVERYWHERE and drape you in daylight simulation.
more of that to come - rollei gave me the CRISPEST night shots.


tokio touwaaa see ajiko for better shots + multiple angle view :P

that reminds me:


check'd out the Tokyo VR project @ this virtual space via jeansnow
cool VR's in and around tokyo - loving the two circles rotating SLOWLY in OPPOSITE directions, and the line breaks for yamanote etc... simple but achieves the tech graphic look at the same time.

but anyway,

vacuUUUm packed ai type clothing - that stuff is NUST. i bought one for myself too :P there's just something about watching your clothes SHRINK!


this is still a bit of an experiment, [and i know it doesnt really work here but i still like the method]
Ai's [temporary]/Jun's room
if you can work it out your're a genius.


new ride for 07
Japanese skate company JOYNT from what i can make out the design is of loads of discarded photographs...?
props to the pro who sold it to me and grip'd it up. wherever he is now i'm sure he's tearing it up日本style.
