Hi Ricardo,

These are some models to give a sense of idea of what I am thinking in terms of mixing materials. I have more images if required.

Generational cascade tells a story of the battle over wasteland. The two structures represent the squatter community and the overpowering governmental authority. Each battle for a land considered as undesirable. The vertical towers tell of a people without the right to land, it is in these structures that the future generations of the evicted squatter community find permanence. The top floors are occupied as class rooms, whilst the 1st floor acts as a canteen, the ground floor being a communal library and the basement as a memorial space. The curves of the towers picture a pregnant woman to consider the next generation, following from the story from the previous generational wasteland drawing in term 2.

On the 1st floor hangs the gardens, where on the upper side, vegetables are grown and viewing spaces/reading spaces are situated. These gardens allow for new wildlife to appear to begin a cascading ecosystem, turning what was once a wasteland into a greenery park as the government intended, this stabilises the banks and provides picnic area’s below. On the under side of the hanging gardens is a layer of moss representing the dead coming back to life through the activation of memory. With the memorial trail going into the ground, it looks up to this ceiling of moss and see’s life activity above to picture the afterlife. This is all maintained by the moss columns which house the watering pipes, utilising the water from the overflow of the bagmati river. These hanging gardens again show a people who have no land and therefore occupy the air.

The tower will begin to have different materials to construct it, this is to allow for different densities of visualisations and for different levels of moss growth on the towers. The hanging gardens are not to be as rigid as drawn but instead use a material for a large part of the plant growth base, these will also flow into the tower however I have not drawn these yet due to still learning how to do this in c4d. The land has not yet been modelled correctly either, as it will have a walk way entering into the land for the memorial trail. I will then add the site to the drawing to give a greater indication of location and scale and reasoning behind the structure.
