The approach of this project will be a conventionally understanding of the previous design work as a disciplinary one, where starts challenge representation and search for relevancy in an era where documentation of design and manufacturing are in flux and are increasingly based on three-dimensional live data.
While BIM is an important development in this regards, our aim is to re-think how we can envision and communicate design in innovative ways which exceed the design object itself. We will re-consider drawing in term of plastic surgery and magnetc resonance imaging, where things can be hacked apart, peeled away and sliced. Cuts will no longer be flat as in conventional plans and sections, but will be warped and active. We will attempt to combine multiple ontologies into the discussion, where things may be represented i nterms of their profile, sihouette, internal organization, energy , acition on other things and integration, all at the same time. The 3 d chunk is to be develoed as a peel away section that reveals the stuctural system, facae components, floor build up and mechanical components.
