Prototype #2: “the Tubes”

14Apr10

My 2nd cardboard prototype. A semi-direct response to the large vertical pipes running through the space. Its stepped heights also mimic the spiral motion of climbing the stairs. It contains a notion about nesting within a space left over by human activity (behind/within the pipe tangle).

It was judged attractive, but not as fully/deeply responsive to the space as I would have liked.

Review comments:

  • If they are supposed to be a nest, drive them even further back into the pipes.
  • Exaggerate the form more: make them longer, taller
  • Emphasize the biological aspect more: mold, fungus, nesting, taking root; current form is more “totemic” than “biomorphic”
