Inflorescence / sculptural seat installation
by Weng Ya Yu & Lau Yi Wen (Group 07)
For this week, we have started on the making of mock up and finalized the poster too.
We will be having 2 sets of mock ups, one will be showing the whole area at a 1:20 scale.
Another set of mock up will be to show the light up effect, but showing only a few seats.
These are the stalks for seats.
In the final revision, we decided to arrange the seats according to the spiral Fibonacci sequence ratio. Clusters of seats will be loosely dispersed around the space to allow individual groups of 2, 3 and 5 to gather within the space at a comfortable distance.
Fibonacci circular pattern sequence will demarcate the floor tiles to Read more →
Last week’s comments
1) There was something missing from the whole composition that caused the whole installation to not gel together as one.
2) We have quite a few elements to work with so it is about refining the arrangement of these elements.
3) Comments were to work with any theories that would justify our arrangement.
1) We have decided to change Read more →
We decided to review why our previous design looked very much like Peter Opsvik’s Garden, here are the key ideas:
Analyzing Garden into elements A. Thick and thin supports B. Branching out from one main support C. Multiple circles in the whole installation D. Seats are very high off ground E. Use of different pattern to differentiate leg rest/seats and backing
What we have in previous design 1. Branching out Read more →
A little recap for last week:
We started on mock up after we had some idea on how we want the whole installation to look like, we used some plasticine and wire to make our mock up.
We did realize that the mock up do not look close to what we’ve imagined.
Key issues for this mock-up: – Lack of Read more →
This week’s agenda: Form ideation of seating sculptures.
The initial idea was to complete a series of seating sculptures inspired by the more prominent form in trees: Banyan’s vertical canopy, Tanjong’s long and wavy-edged leaves and Binjai’s fruit.
KS suggested that we redefine these elements into a singular piece instead. We also keep in mind of the purpose Read more →

Recap from last week!
Last week, we have decided on doing public seating to facilitate more interaction in the Communal Plaza of North Hill Halls. The forms will be inspired by our own interpretation of the trees; Fluidity, Transience & Vitality.
Some feedbacks that we’ve received: > Prototype that we did was too abstract and hard for viewers Read more →
-Recap from last week –
PSD matrix was constructed based on the characteristics of the north hall heritage trees: Banyan = Fluidity, Tanjong = Vitality, Binjai = Transience.
This week we aim to transpose the three design elements into meaningful visual forms that represent its characteristics.
Multiple types of green are already scattered around the communal plaza. Read more →

We had a little site visit last week to check out the 3 trees planted at the new halls.
We got a leaf from each tree to have a closer look and to observe it (shortest leaf – banyan; longest leaf – binjai)
We were pretty amazed by the smell of the leaves of binjai tree Read more →
