VIEW CHOSEN FOR SECTION PERSPECTIVE
THE LIGHTING PROPOSAL FOR HAMPSTEAD HEATH (THE BIOLIGHTS GUIDE THE VISITORS TO THE SITE AND OFFER SAFE WALKING PATHS AT NIGHT)
CLOSE-UP OF ONE UNIT

Dear Ricardo & Nannette,

Hello, I hope all is well.

I have modified my proposal in order to create a harmonious flow withinthe design and to create an experience. I wanted to make the structure blend in with the surrounding environment (which I am going to model soon with the trees) during daytime and I wanted the space to become an experience like an installation at night. Therefore, I wanted to use glass as my main material so that the structure is ghostly during day with focus to the scientists workng in the labs.

Currently I have done the circulation for the visitors, but I still need to design the entrances for the scientists working in the laboratories. In terms of the playground, I am not so sure about that idea and I hope to discuss it in the tutorials.

I thought that maybe half of the section perspective could show daytime with visitors interacting with the laboratories using different viewing platforms and technologies for each unit of testing, while the other half of the drawing could show the visitors experiencing the performative installation throughout the night.

I haven’t managed to start designing the interior yet however once I get the circulation to look and perform the way I want, I’ll directly begin.

Best,

Pelin

HI Pelin,

Thanks for posting the work on time! Here are a few comments to help you develop the design further:

1- it is good to see the progress of the path, and now you really need to work on the interior but with the further relationship with the site. The idea that your design is somehow not only on the site, but also promoting some kind of change around it could help on the narrative of day and night. For example maybe your project has nocturnal activities. In the TERM 01 you proposed very interesting and challenging creatures. Maybe on Tuesday we can discuss more about it – how the project nocturnal life can be introduced.

2- Yes the interior needs to be designed but first of all they need to be imagined, not only a space for scientists, but a place that is actively trying to influence the surrounding, revealing data, involving people in day and night activities. For that you need to hand pick one of two references that convey concepts and ideas similar to yours and also inspire you.

3- I will send you a ref on whattsapp after this, so you can see how interior spaces can also be more open areas and the other around.

4- The chosen view should actively involve more parts of the park you want to engage and change, make sure your project is relating to the surrounding.

Give it a good push for Tuesday specially regarding point 1 and 2.

Look forward to see you and your work on Tuesday!
Best,
R+N
