Through the process of investigation and analysis, two-dimensional diagrams were created exploring the concepts of axis/symmetry/balance, geometry/proportion, repetition/rhythm, repetitive vs unique, circulation, structure, building to site, figure/ground. hierarchy, and other findings specific to the site and its reading.
After having researched and reinterpreted the site plan precedent through two-dimensional diagramming, the task was to complete the analysis by constructing its spatial, perceptual, and phenomenological aspects in a series of abstract analytical models.
Axis Exterior building plan lines that lie on the y-axis
Exterior building plan lines that lie on the x-axis
Building formed out of squares and rectangles
Reverse Figure Ground
A diagonal hatch to represent the ground of the figure ground and open space within to represent the figure
Extended lines for the boundaries of the building and pools
Water Edge vs. Built Edge
Profile of where the water meets the rocks and pools versus the profile of where the road meets the building and path
Calm Waters vs. Aggressive Water
Light horizontal hatch to represent the pools (calm waters) and a darker hatch for the ocean (aggressive waters)
