    forces deforming the rotating spheres
    diagram showing the continuous first floor with dense and less dense areas

    section diagram:
    - seeing oneself upside down in reflective ceilings versus seeing others upside down across the station
    - apertures become denser and larger towards the rotation axis - differentiation into day and night zones
    - in the dense areas, some spheres stay rather full to create more closed spaces
    - additional floors inserted to gain more floor area, sometimes no flat floor


    look at an almost closed night ceiling

    look through a porous day ceiling

    spheres under the influence of a vortex field:
    the center of the vortex field is represented by the red ball.

    WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS ANIMATION:
    - emphasizes the relation between the spheres, blends them into one figure
    - erodes the geometric primitive
    - spheres become flat - finally a way to reduce the floor height! - can I achieve a flat floor without cutting?

    NEXT STEP:
    - design with control using these interesting features

    FEEDBACK

    - Work on fineness and aesthetics! Work on pattern and surface articulation and refine the meetings of surfaces.

    - Elaborate a variation in size, height, density and connectivity of spaces considering program and lifestyle.

    - The space stations are rotating, so why doesn’t any of the designs show forces?

    One station is basically one continuous space, differentiated into zones by the ceiling.

    I switched from bubbles that touch each other to spheres that intersect each other.

    The perspective view shows the continuous floor all around the station. Special situations emerge when there are gaps between the spheres that function as walls.

    A second level emerges, when spheres are stacked exactly above each other.



    FEEDBACK:

    The project is so simple that it is easy to understand and very clear. Now it is time to introduce more complexity!

    - Geometry: It is dominated by the appearance of the individual sphere - Erode the primitive geometry, e.g. by treating parts (joints, ceilings, crack-walls) in a special way to emphasize their relation. More variation in size.

    - Cutting with a plane perpendicular to the rotation axis is a simple strategy to introduce a variety of flat elements, that give a first approach towards fenestration.

    - Fenestration: In relation to the function, in contrast to the spheres and circles.
