Catalog of Spatial Relations and Modeling Them

While & after visiting Göreme we made analyses based on the spatial relations, architectural elements and spatial qualities. After this analysis we produced diagrams that combined together would create a catalog of the spatial conditions at hand.

Later on we were given a model-making assignment that would make use of our analysis and our catalogs while studying conditions of being both and B; or being neither completely A nor B. Like being an opening but neither being a door nor a window. My examples were also being both a transitioning space and a threshold, or being neither an entrance nor a door. Then we designed these spaces as a whole.

I made use of the variations in my diagrams. For example, one space that is accessed through an opening at a narrow, low height and gets higher as we go in and another that gets lower as we enter from an opening that has more height. Another variation featured two spaces being combined through an opening (which was neither a door nor a window) with the first variation that has an extra opening that acts like a door on the upper level and the second variation having an opening in the lower one. Also, I studied the openings that open to the sky and openings that open to another enclosed space as two different scenarios.

After this we were asked to revise the model by focusing on the ish condition. The -ish is something that is not quite the thing itself but acts like that thing. Like in my model: an opening that acts like a door or a window; or even an opening that acts like a partition wall.
