Architecture – Some New Ideas

img002img001

This is my design for a new style of church building. The idea is to give maximum space and freedom to the worshipers while adding the spice of the stained glass affect on them as they participate. Space age and forward looking. The commissioner could choose the design of the window to personalise it.

Further ideas: Architecture. What do you think?

1. A penthouse floor of an office block. ‘The Chieftans Suite’. It will be set out in a symmetric pattern, so that a decision can be considered and made from one position, perhaps contemplating a view. Then, the alternative hypothesis or approach can be looked at from an equal but opposite point of view. By actually physically moving to an opposite environment, viewpoint, shape and surroundings, the other view can be considered. Later, a balanced, third view, a decision can be made in the neutrality of a boardroom type setting.

I will submit an example drawing of the floorplan for you to have a look at.

Here it is, a simple version. Although more varied shapes could be applied. Please not how the view from each alcove differs vastly. On is urban and build, the other is open sea and coast.

2. A work environment with cubby holes where people can ‘discover’ items of interest in interesting locations. For example, an abacus, and they can go on a journey discovering the significance and history of the item, relating it to their place and method of work. They can progress in this way.

Also incorporated in this design is the idea of decision making skills being improved by differing settings in each of the points of the ‘star’. There is also a central hub where matters can be discussed together, in conference.

3. An underground, ‘v’ shaped, glass walled, reverse skyscraper. With a circular performance space at the base. Again, I should really try to draw this.
