SD I DM I part IV _
grid l & pattern
D. Batista PhD, Grid I method
Powerful tool of architectural composition. Grid is one of the most important hidden mechanisms within best architectural compositions. In this course student will learn approaches how to developed grid. Grid phenomena in architecture can be connected with empty spaces borders and full spaces borders. Creation of grid rely on lines, curves and patterns of built space and natural landscape. In advanced application of grid into the constructional composition student will be introduced with approaches of primary and secondary constructional grid with rhythm techniques.
SD I DM I part IV _ spatial structural applications
Student's half independent research according to D. Batista’s interactive lecture /script for students with title Grid pattern | spatial structural applications; Definition of grid, Definition of Layers, Axis, Definition of pattern, Decoration, Alan Turing’s ‘pattern formation, Allan Turing’s Reaction-diffusion model, self-organizing patterns,
Till Elastics instability mechanism, Victor Vasarely’s opt art, Definition of ornament, The Grammar of Ornament, Moroso’s African collection, Morphogenesis, Genome, Reaction–diffusion systems, Origin & character, geometric presentation through lenses of inventions in art, design and architecture, The Glass House, the first public "happening", etc.
Parametric modelling in architecture
Lecture explains definition of parametric modelling. Algorithmic thinking is presented though Jean Nouvel’s Study of the initial duplication of the fractal pattern, The Louvre, Abu Dhabi. Furthermore are presented examples of best student’s parametric modelling using fractal logic.
Our life is pattern
Through the lenses of her traveling memoirs and famous photographer’s visions Dominika Batista PhD is showing how human life itself is pattern. Not only architecture but city and landscape phenomena are depending on grid where patterns influence and create everyday human life. In visible and invisible ways.
