Design Development

This week I have been trying to understand the structural system of my proposal in a little more depth. This is slightly tricker than I would have liked, firstly due to the scale of the proposal and secondly due to the form and tesselation. Anyway to make sense of it I started to look at the main roofscape throughout the site and connecting circulation ramps as illustrated below.

In order to understand the structure of the individual buildings, I need to do more studies into the actual program of each building and determine a layout which works in conjunction with the structural lattice detected on site. To do this I started to look at some of the key spaces in my building:
These perspectives are fairly indicative at this stage but they illustrate the irregularities in the structural system that will be present throughout the building.
