Exercise 2.3 Initial Concept Proposals

Fig. 1 Fluidity of the shape.

I looked at my work so far and felt particularly inspired by my soundscapes mapped drawing (https://aggievideoblog.files.wordpress.com/2020/09/fig.-4a-soundscapes-mapped.jpeg?w=1024). I struggled to draw what I had in mind, so I decided to make a model. I especially like shade cast by this model.

Then I thought what it would be like inside. So I placed my model over a tablet with a photo of the sky. That would be the view inside – upwards.

I realised that shape was not practical for my pavilion. The gaps on the sides would take too much of the maximum 9m2 footprint, so usable interior space would be too small. I do not consider creating this model a waste of time as it inspired me further and I started ‘doodling’ some ideas.

The idea is a rounded structure on an oval shaped plan. The structure narrows as it goes up, with a large circular opening in the roof and gaps between sheer components of the walls. The oval shape refers to the Tattenham corner sharp bend in the racecourse, the large opening in the roof is inspired by James Turrell’s work but also by precedent examples I studied (especially Serpentine Summer House and Oasis Pavilion). The sheer of the walls is inspired by Oasis Pavilion and the overall shape by cones on the Wicker Pavilion. I think the Wicker and Oasis Pavilions were the most peaceful from my precedent examples. I believe drawing inspiration from these will aid the function of my pavilion which is supposed to be a resting place for aging community. I decided to go for shades of green which is a naturally calm colour and further refers to the green surroundings of my pavilion and grass covered Epsom Downs racecourse nearby. The shape of my pavilion has been is also inspired by my drawing of the bush in form & light drawing. (https://aggievideoblog.files.wordpress.com/2020/09/fig.-6-form-light.jpg?w=1024)

The last drawing in Fig. 13 specifies approximate dimensions, entrance and seating.
