MATERIAL STUDY

second year | spring '17

Taking SANAA's Small House as a precedent, an exploration was undertaken to see different means of material representation can be used to represent a housing analysis based on form and program.

Three distinct studies were done based on distinct types of analysis: a stereotomic study, a tectonic study and a monocoque study. The stereotomic study involved casting melted glycerine soap with different dye application. The tectonic study involves bent acrylic frames hung on to an aluminum skeleton. The monocoque study is PETG heat formed to represent the skin of the house in its four corners.
