These reinterpretation drawings above are the architectural acts of barriers of human movement in Kutaisi Airport, Georgia. As can be seen in plan and section development drawings, human movements are naturally created by the barriers of the airports. These drawings also shows the transition of spaces with different experiences and situations, e.g. check-in booth, waiting lounge, duty free etc.
The building is also made with glass envelope, this is to give a comfort feeling for the occupiers/travellers to move around the building and to reveal the unseen views of the airport internally and externally. This explanation is the use of the Transparency concept.
These drawings are drawn in a sequence of travellers going through barriers of movement.
The second reinterpretation drawing is finalised by adding see-through and reflection elements for transparency on the glass envelope.
The final reinterpretation drawing is a combination of isometric and oblique drawings. The isometric drawing shows the flow of human movement throughout the barriers and the oblique drawing shows the series of human movement’s barriers.
This projective view drawing conveys the meeting point between the two reinterpretation drawing agendas.
From the act of destroying a typical plan grid system and its external carcase like the Alumni memorial hall as an example, architectural elements e.g. the i-beams are free to repeat and extend infinitely. In correlation with this, these beams also figuratively symbolise the idea of infinite time and the i-columns represent events or challenges (acting as infinite barriers) in the lives of the individual hatched columns (representing people). However, these barriers can be avoided depending on the route so they force the movement thus creating a series of spaces. In order to show transparency, shadows are used on opaque elements such as the i-beams and reflections of other elements are represented in the transparent corridor walls and floor. The walls are infinite to symbolise the endless process of mass production and the entire drawing is read as a one-point perspective with a linear arrangement so that the themes of time and infinite structure take a significant role.
