Vertical Facade Elements
I have introduced a series of vertical elements into my design, these elements form part of the weave and internally work as the buildings structure. I created a regular grid to decide on the spacing of the vertical and horizontal forms, this grid is also expressed on the facade through the vertical panels. I decided that these panels should reflect the 'lost' buildings which I have experimented with weaving and layering over the existing in the past.
Lost Elevation - My imagined elevation of Fournier Street in the 18th Century
Vertical Slices taken from the Lost Elevation - unexpectedly my grid layout meant that all the vertical slices fell in the same places on each building.
