For week 6, I had to produce two styles, gridded hatching and interruptions of parallel straight lines, to see and experiment the disturbances of human movement within spaces.
I’ve taken the Kutaisi ‘King David the Builder’ International Airport’ plan as my reference drawing (also my reference drawing in week 4), please see attachment. From the project itself, the most obvious Architecture elements are the curtain wall and the main structure at the centre. Thus, I’ve taken them as the architecture elements in my drawings/thumbnails. To develop from my previous works, I started with applying the same idea of my drawing concept to more detailed drawing in accordance to the project’s plan:
From the drawings above, the plan has 4 groups of spaces, 2 curved pathways to indicate the most used circulations, and with the main structure at the centre.
The departure and arrival space is the most raised space, and private spaces (offices etc) are the lowest (sunk in) spaces. I started experimenting with gridded hatching style.
The different intensities of the grid hatching are showing the movements of travelers/non travelers/workers.
The bigger the grid hatching, the lesser the movement is and spacious; the smaller the hatching, the more the movement is, crowded and most used.
By comparing the two concepts, Concept 2, without the lines indicating the spaces, gives clearer idea on my drawing concept in showing the disturbances and differences in movement.
Therefore, I proceed to Concept 2 and developed the drawings with the chosen architecture elements; curtain walls for open spaces and break-up walls (to reveal the unseen views) for private spaces.
The difference between the two developments are the intensities of the grid hatching, Development 1 is the same as the one I’ve mentioned from the above explanation, whereas development 2 with; the bigger the grid hatching, the more the movement is and crowded; the smaller the hatching, the lesser the movement is and spacious.
Development 3 is then tested with the second style, interruptions of parallel straight lines. The differences of the parallel lines are to indicate the different levels of the spaces.
These two styles, gridded hatching andinterruptions of parallel straight lines, show their respective disturbances, indicating the differences in movement. As my opinion, gridded hatching shows both intensities and differences in movement, but as for interruptions of parallel straight lines only shows the differences in movement.
