Hi guys,

Here a post of the process of my modelling.

I am Designing and making 3 elements of the forest.

The first one : the pick-up place to get you trees.

The second part : the amphitheater where the production tion of the trees are visible.

The third part : (need to be made this week.) The construction to give the trees there permanent place where they can grow as mature trees. A place where ownership of the existing architecture can happen. Where old trees can be used for production of wood. And where seeds can produce new young trees.

Hi Guys,

Please see my latest drawings attached. My aim for this drawing is to explore in further depth the logistics of my proposal. By having a birds eye view it becomes clear how the structure is working within the existing space and infrastructure. The main focus is to show how the production lines of the Christmas trees can work alongisde the adventurous and practical way of walking and cycling. Therefore creating a freindly and welcoming space.

I would love to have a discussion around which perspective I need to carry on with to show the important elements that need to be explored in the second drawing. One drawing (not finished) is a large scale urban approach, while within the second drawing is it easier to show the detailing.

I very much look forward to tomorrows meeting.

‘What if’ we were to bring the production forest of the Christmas trees to the city centre of London, where we would provide the one million trees that the city consumes every year. 

Therefore I purpose to design a forest full of ‘already used’ Christmas trees that would run as a system whereby trees are rented for 6 weeks at the end of the year and used as an indoor tree while the rest of the year they are part of ‘the new future forest’ situated in the city centre. This forest would help to capture the Co2 emissions, control the increasing heat waves every year by cooling down the city centre and help prevent water flooding. 

What you can see on the drawing and how daily life will involve in this first proposal I will explain this in the presentation.

Hi Guys,

Here my upload. Unfortunately not finished yet. The model is now ready to place the trees into the production construction. What you can see in the water infrastructure on the street level. The walking pathways into the higher and permanent tree constructions. Also on the right side the open air theatre in combination with the young tree construction that are facing the north sun. However still a lot of work to do over the weekend.

Iam sorry that I’ve been not able to finish it.

Hi Guys!

Here is a composition study related to Kings cross.

Hand drawn, that will be continued digitally.

I imagine a ‘pine tree / Christmas tree’ forest that has been evolved over time into a permanent forest that overtakes all the public functions and infrastructure. What we can notice on the right is a production forest where the trees are lined up within a wooden (zig-zag) construction. Those trees are able to disconnect and can be used for the Christmas celebration. Over time the young trees becomes too large and will be placed into their final and permanent destination. A single column with soil and a platform to capture rain water will be the part of this permanent structure. Over time the trees are growing and bending their way into the ‘New Future Forest’, where even daily life finds its way in.

Also there should be place for Architecture within this forest (all made out of Wood). The architecture expressed itself through a proposal in this drawing of A ‘Forester Department’. This uplifted building has a clear overview of the forest- where they can see what is needed to maintain it. Those functions and programs are related to the connecting pathways, that make it able to go through the forest without walking on the street level and create new and adventurous public spaces (needed to worked out in this drawing).

My aim in the drawing was to show you the perspective of the human scale within this large ‘Pine Forest’ proposal. I am very curious to the feedback and where I need to focus on the the coming week. Looking forward to the critique.
