S + F

S+F, also known as SEED & FIELD injection.

The spatial organization strategy I used while I creating my spaces is creating a continuous flow between spaces by shifting some elements of my seed or leaving some openings both inside of the spaces and the between spaces. Those gaps which has repeating scales are in the position of directing one space to another spaces. At the same time, the spaces are opening to those gaps so, it supports the continuity condition.

I do not have separator elements or boundaries inside of the seed but I have strong limiter elements on the ends of the diagonal positioning. They corroborate the idea of they hold the seed from two edges and represent the diagonal spread of the seed. I also have spaces inside of them.

Final Jury Poster

Final Jury Poster

You see the poster I prepared for final jury representation. I have little space details of my final model at the top of my poster. The sub part represents the strategies, decisions and again some space details. I draw top Elevation Drawings to show Injection Strategy, Axonometic Drawing to show the Growth Strategy, and Partial Section Drawings to show some Space Details.

What is Hinge?

The hinge is defined to the studio as a design tool for design strategies; how seed and field relate to each other physically (they are not supposed to intersect with each other) & how different parts of the design interrelate with each other. It is about relating elements through the hinge, redefining their relation and creating spaces. However, not every point is emphasized as a hinge. While defining the hinge, we also need to have a strategy.

We can see the similar relationships but while one is entitled as hinge, the other one is not. So, what is the difference? Why do you think this is a hinge? In order to differentiate the hinge from the other relationships, we need to consider about textual, dimensional, and formal details.

*Hinge is not exact construct but it is about how two things come together and make something.

Scale change of the elements maybe makes the hinge. Also, texture, thickness can be applied as a hinge. The elements which are not touch each other and the gap between them creates the hinge.
