it still needs to work on but  i’ve already spent to much time on it so i think i’ll leave it as it is now

my plan is to work today on presentation and tomorrow finish the portfolio. I’ve made an appointment in mediashore to print my last things on Monday 8 am.

the question is what is most important to do on sunday. i’ll have time only to make one new page so ‘milk embassy idea’ (E) or ‘top level;’ (S) . i think E is more important, more needed in my presentation. what do you think?

Filed under: Basia

this i a general plan of my presentation:

A). Showing the finished project
Quick explanation of the brief
Short introduction to the project like: ‘My project is an urban farm on King’s Cross which combines raising cattle with dairy processing and tourism.’

B,C,D). Explanation of the main features of the site

E). About my interest in Polish products on King’s Cross and explanation of the Milk Embassy idea

F). Shortly that I’ve visited farm and dairy

G). I tried to make a comparison between people and cows because I’m designing a building for both. The most important difference is that cows can not walk down the stairs which made me focus on the vertical circulation in my building.

H). About division into tree zones

I, J). Development of the form step by step

K). Development of vertical circulation step by step

L). Shortly about how I made decisions about what function is on which level

M). Mentioning that I made a model

N). About transparent corridors
About grid on the elevation

O). That this grid was continued on the street level
Explanation what happens on the ground floor

P, R). Explanation of other floors

S). Explanation of the top floor

T). Shortly about stair tower
please, text as soon as you comment on it so that I’ll now when to check it

my project in 200 words by basiak

My project is an urban farm on King’s Cross which combines raising cattle with dairy processing and tourism. It is called the Milk Embassy because it tells a whole story of milk from cows grazing on the pasture to the person gorging themselves on fresh yoghurt. There is a distinct division into tree zones: agro, where cows live and are taken care of; dairy, where milk is processed; and tourism, which allows visitors to take part in activities of other zones by observing, active contact with cattle and consumption. The form of the building allows the best insight into functioning of the milk industry. The building has a transparent envelope so that all the actions are visible from outside. For a clear layout stairs, lifts and lavatories were moved to the separate tower connected to the main building with set of bridges. Both buildings are cut by transparent corridors that preserve important views of the site. In the main building the corridor serves also as a life gallery showing like a section every activity in the building from the public spaces on the ground level to the most private top level cow facilities and underground dairy. Pastures located on the roofs are alternative form of urban greenery.
