DR3005 – Week 9

As seen above, this is our scale model of the design for the nest, that we have arrived at up till the ideation for week 8. However, there are still improvements to be made. The curved support structure sprouting from the centre feels too engineered, and detracts from the form of a natural bird’s nest. Furthermore, the halo that it supports… Read more →

Originally, when we were thinking of an inspiration, we came across a natural phenomenon or attribute known… Read more →

DR3005 – Week 1 (The infra-ordinary)

Interpretation of ‘The Infra-Ordinary’ Our interpretation of Georges Perec’s piece is that we as a greater society and as individuals have become jaded toward that which makes our lives possible living. The cogs of the system so to speak. We take the things and structures and processes around us for granted, not realizing the possibly extraordinary or unexpected circumstances in… Read more →
