The task is to design a community center building for The World of Kind Objects at the ‘Europa Garten’ in Frankfurt. This site is a park that is planned for completion in 2019, and is situated on the highway overpass in Europaviertel area of Frankfurt, in the midst of the large scale development to the west of Frankfurt Messe.
This project is evolved in Platform Sandbox V2.0 by Damjan Jovanovic , later post processed in various softwares , with the elements extracted from Orange County by Architect Paul Rudolph. Elements are distorted in scale, axis and de– stratified them, were elements interact and empathize with one another to create a character like composition. A gigantic creature is uplifted by two legs from the ground.
” I was assigned with library, I choose to do a comic library for a particular community. The entire outer shell is juxtaposition to the interior. This tends to create a Turbulent drama of Interior and Exterior space. In order to create an ambiguous interior space of the object I embedded blob like structure inside the main shell, which together works on contradiction creating complicated effects in interior”. It amplifies the incongruence relationship between interior and exterior shell, it tends create deep interior space at certain areas. At certain points the interior shell is embedded to the exterior which would be like an ineffable space. Small openings are created, when two different elements come together and imprint on one another to form a third element. This act as fenestration to the building. the Texture I have incarnated the shift character from orange county to my character model in the form of voxel in two different resolution. ” A comic image was distorted in two types and combined them to create the new texture. In order to differentiate two resolution voxels ,I have enfolded the texture on high resolution voxel, whereas I have painted on low resolution voxel”. Interior surface texturing is done according to the exterior, whereas the colour is given contradict to the exterior. The function of the building is Comic Library, vertical structures would be the vertical circulation to the main core which would be atrium, which leads to various comic sections and then to Auditorium, Gallery Space and Administration. ” In order to get the overall character I have used image from Star wars Battlefront game”.
