Progressing from my concept model I have modelled some more developed ideas in sketch up. I have tried to give the woven strips some more logical forms by setting up a grid with a series of columns to 'weave' around. This grid of vertical elements works as the structure of the building as well as forming part of the weave design. I have also used the grid to re-think the circulation of the building, trying to incorporate the main access routes around the new vertical elements.
The vertical elements help to divide the facade and provide structure for the horizontal strips to weave around.
