Three Guests Change their Clothes

swamp: the important aspect was to show the above & below of the swamp environment. The two point persp. allows a magnification which is offset by the large Banyan trees which stress a vertical growth towards their roots. Banyan trees as organisms are fascinating, they double back and shoot roots to the ground, there is great potential for manipulation as shelter. *Oppressing trees is trendy in Architecture schools.

cliff: a redrawing of the first cliff idea. Continuing with the focus on verticality and sheer drop of the ice floes [inuit relocating to cliff faces bypassing the melting glaciers], playing with the possibility of either hanging structures or actually interfering withthe volume of the cliff by digging perpendicularly.

forest: splicing the view of the forest into canopy and roots. The canopy is a mode of filtration and shelter. A heirarchy existing between a macro and micro scale. The leave is a cyclic filtration at the micro scale while the trees form a collective macro filtration system. Playing around with the Fibbonacci sequence which is found in nature, is the growth of trees truly random or is there a pattern governed by reason. With the opposite view the roots and bark offer a layering of systems. From the tree's own bark as a layering over time to the idea of tree rot. A diseased tree will expose its innards while leaving the bark caseing. The Human Pappilo Virus may present itself as a growth of roots on a human's hands and feet. The virus hijacks the immune system and orders skin to grow gnarly and root like.

Hi Camila,
thanks for the massage,
that one was modeled from rhino and rendered in 3dmax, I'm not good at Rhino but I used to use max before. But I found a large majority of people using Rhino here.
