Senior Project, Research, the Nature of Creativity
Last Week of the Quarter
One Truth For All
I've been working on systematizing the research center modules and creating an architectural language. Right now, I'm working primarily in plan and developing that language in plan; I have three quarters of work to develop a larger vocabulary.
Here we have a little diagram I've been working with showing the spines attached to each other, built out to meet the needs of a growing company.
And here's a basic sort of spine configuration. The whole idea with this center is that it would be built out as needed, not all at once. So as a laboratory or a module of offices is needed, that would be slapped into place. The design and so forth would already be worked out, so the company has the flexibility to make quick additions. This would lend itself nicely to prefab, but even that isn't required, and might not save much time in the construction process.
This spine has office space for 100 researchers and 10 support personnel.
