Origami-Space Definition
Origami originated in China, and slowly developed into children's toys, as well as teaching aids in the School of Architecture used in some of the architectural design. (Origami's meaning: although it is a thin piece of paper, but it's capable of changing many different graphics and then forming three-dimensional modeling.) Origami, also known as "craft origami", is a kind of art activities by folding the paper into various shapes.It is not only challenging but also can inspire thinking. The commen folding technique of Origami is "mountain" (mountain is convex crease) and "valley"(valley is concave crease).A simple piece of paper can be created into a rugged visual aesthetic and demonstrate the effect of realistic three-dimensional space,after being carefully canceived and craft folded, as well as integratedly using the techniques of mountain and valley. Background of the project: It is a real estate sale center.The appearance is a six-sided HD transperent glass box,and transparent inside, without any pattern or partition wall, except a few column bracing. Difficulty: 1. Transparent space. How to define the space to distinguish the functional areas from each other, besides,without affecting the overall visual aesthetic of transparent space. 2. So much functional areas need to be defined in space,such as auditorium, sell control reception, lobby area, sand table, model area, discussion area, bar, the ancillary space (toilets, small offices, etc.) Design ideas: Throughout the design, we apply a new layout idea that runs through the whole series from all the different spaces,while defines the spaces,to achieve the beauty of the overall shape, instead of using traditional ways of thinking and the idea of dividing the region through the solid wall(The limited space would be cut into small and scattered pieces,therefore,the external overall look is messy.) .This is our idea of origami art. 1. The definition of space: Firstly,origami encloses a lobby space; then use valley once to surround an auditorium,which will make it looks like an egg.Meanwhile,along the direction of origami, skillfully positioned out a sale control reception by using the valley,an then followed by a sand table through spatial rotation and reception hall through lines rolling……The jagged shape of origami (on the ground - wall - top - floor - wall) is well-spaced placed in the square glass box with different regions . 2. Space Sculpture overall aesthetic: Watching the interior from the outside of HD transparent glass box,you will find a giant sculpture craft formed by well-spaced functional area modules in the box.A kind of visual beauty comes from the scattered distribution and smooth convergence .
