ENGAGING PALISADE

The resulting design work when the only design factors are derived from site analysis

This design is of a brick wall intervention at the faculty of Architecture in Wellington. The design processes included heavy site analysis, and ended up focussing on the juxtaposition between most of the data gathered. This resulted in form that both reflected site conditions and rejected them. 3D modelling for the wall was done in Rhino.

 


 

SITE ANALYSIS

DESIGN INSPIRATION

The location receives enough sun for light but won’t overheat. There is a lot of wind flowing through this section, so protection will be needed for the high concentration of people sitting in this area. It is already an open space, so no changes to the site are required. An intervention here would cause the least amount of negative impact on its surroundings and positively enhance the activity already present. The shelter should provide protection while also reflecting its surroundings.
