Paper: Planar Construction
2013
Paper, foam board
Dimensions variable
3-D BEG DESIGN

Objective:

1) To gain an understanding of the characteristics of planes and how they relate to each other in space.
2) To investigate relationships between material and form and analyze the influence of a particular material’s limitation on a form structure.
3) To figure out how to transform 2D (paper) into a 3D form.

Process:

1. Find a location and take pictures (panoramic images)
• Choose a) specific spot (scene) and build your own place
Ex. house, coffee shop, restaurant, store, etc.
b) a building and reconstruct it

2. Collage /brainstorming: consider a theme (concept)- show inspiration and intent
• Consider people, location, scenery, weather, etc.

3. Sketches/ develop your ideas: 3 different sketches

4. Paper model:
• Construct 3D paper model of self-supporting planes. Model should be interesting at all angles and make the viewer want to look closer. It should be dynamic and appear as if it is caught in a single moment.

• Work with a combination of straight, bent, curved, broken, and twisted planes. Develop relationships between planes across negative space.

5. Final Presentation:
• Determine the scale of your model- increase the scale (ex. ½, ¾, etc.)

• Attach your 3D form to a piece of white foam board- include scale figures and any other elements you feel would help to bring your structure to life and illustrate scale/ proportion.
