SHAPING THE BLOCK

As a starting point the unit will explore through models the initial shape of 1 Ha plan Block. For this aim, this exercise will encompass two main explorations of the overall block shape and the intricacy of its fragments. Firstly, these explorations will be developed in a purely intuitive manner imaging the block shape. Different malleable materials, such as paper, clay, cardboard, cloth, foam, metal cables, and wood sticks, will be initially use to have a range of schematic shapes that will be later used.
