    In the 1970s space colonies were considered to be a viable alternative to a life restricted to planet Earth. The design of cylindrical space...
    Now playing SpaceCollective
    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.



    Model G and Model C are reworked in a way that Model G works as part of the "GROUND" and model C as the "FIGURE" -
    at the edge of the building unity, the distinction between these two is cleary readable by horizontal seperation...
    towards the centre, the two Models merge together and contribute consequently to an orientational confusion from the visitors view



    the horizon as a medium for orientation...


    the closer to the edge of the building - the better the sight connection to the horizon - orientation

    the more you move towards the centre of the building and the closer you are to the drop off via the space elevator - the more you loose the connectivity to the horizon - surreal and confusing spaces
    appear - a first foretaste of what is expecting you in space

    extra terrestrial section



    ...how it could look...




    360 degree rotation of 2 segments...




    rotation - massing - trans-connections - formation

    test the 2 rotations....spinning speed is the same

    test1: tennisball: full ball divided into 2 - maximal size of singular segment
    report: oversecting arms and bodies, bigger one leaves the tip of the body uncovered........smaller one comletely coverd....

    test2: what part is covered by arms, what by body of the opposite segment?
    report: body covers the "limbs" and the edges of the main body-area; the arms cover mostly the poles (central bodies) and the areas covered by the bodies aswell



    test3: reducing the width of the arms...
    report: area covered by bodies stays the samein size, uncovered area enlarges around the poles and along the central axis of the arms



    test4: shortening the arms length..
    report: uncovered area gets bigger radially



    test5: reduce the size of the bodies...
    report: the uncovered area stayes the same, the area covered by the bodies minimalizes...

    test6: removing body from singular partition and simplifying it to a ring....
    report: uncovered area gets slightly bigger, the part thats covered by the central (body-) part is enlarging massivly



    test7: taking the symetry from the ring - shorten it slightly and reducing the width at one end....central (body-) part is shifting from the pole to the larger side
    report: uncovered area enlarges enormously towards the side thats covered by the narrow and short part; the area that's covered by the central partition (larger one) is concentrated at the opposte half and does't change in size compared to the previous tests

    My interest lies presently in dealing with the horizon as a tool for orientation.

    The project deals with a given horizon (terrestrial) on the one hand and multiple artificial horizons (extra-terrestrial) on the other.


    the extra terrestrial option....
    in the extra terrestrial project I'm trying to create orientation by sight connections to several other areas - the colser to the edge, the less relation to the systems inner organisation - the less controlled orientation


    the terrestrial option...
    in the terrestrial project I try to blend from easily definable spaces in relation to the horizon towards obscour spaces in the inner that give a glimpse of what outer space could bring - multiple horizons.......



    What inspires me at the National Galerieof Mies is the blending of open spaces (turned towards outside ,giving a view to the horizon (orientation)) - and small closed up spaces, turned towards the centre (lack of orientation).

    ....
    .. the "Villa Savoye" of Le Corbusier inspires me in a way how to deal with areas of great mass and smaller units in contrast to ares of open space and infiltrating structure on the one hand and areas with freely distributed units on the other.. the transition of one area to the other is part of my present research..


    .. also at Mies's "Neue Nationale Galerie" I find Inspiration in terms of distribution of different characters of space... the unclear borders in the horitonals on the one hand and the claer definition of "borders" between spaces in the perpendicular -the vertical direction could be part of my scheme - in translation to the extra terrestrial conditions..


    .. like Kahn is treating the roof division as a further extension of volume at the "Kimbell Museum"...could be an idea how to deal with the closure towards the centre of the rotating object..a kind of stylized sky in this artifial cosmos..
