Dining Space: parti, sketch model, and final model
With the dining space project, there were so many directions to go with it. We had a few parameters, but the main ones - location and interior space - were not defined. From the begining, I choose a path slightly different from other students. I wanted to make my dining space more intuitive and free flowing, using elements of nature and instruments of dining from all over the world. For my parti, I used shapes and materials that were cut organically and focused around a color scheme found in earth elements.
The dining space I envisioned was one that was mobile, and created the feeling of a close, intimate interior space while being outdoors. I wanted to use bamboo, wood, and stone.
I invisioned large elephant plant leaves as plates and chopsticks as serving utensils. I wanted to have different chairs from all over the world to celebrate diversity and give the space a certain eclectic feel.
