A proposed exterior observatory pavilion for the Azrieli Architecture Building. The design focus was to utilizing the overhangs of the building to create the forms present aka the large, spiky arches.
Based off of forms possible by hanging rope from under the overhang and combined afterwards
A new proposed design, focusing on a more simplistic design with more clear purpose for use. Additional gadgets are added to this to address potential solutions to issues present at the site.
The finalized panel for the observatory, including an elevation, section and plan.
The mid-platform serves as an entrance point into the building and as a periscope lookout to watch for the train approaching. During the day, light shines through the holes above, creating an artificial night sky in the day while also alluding to the purpose of the top platfrom as an observing platform for the night sky.
All forms are created through steel cables wrapped in rope, soaked in concrete and are hung from the overhang of the building. These forms are then reinforced with more concrete and plaster afterwards.
The model here was made from braided string dipped in plaster, then hung from a board. Once the arches were formed, they were all joined and covered in plaster again
