STEREOTOMIC

D105 First Year Studio II, Spring 2019

Introducing the concepts of stereotomic and tectonic, students were assigned to create a dynamic, spatial form representing the idea of stereotomic. Use concrete to cast molds and acquire the desired mass through molding negative space.

Two triangular masses utilize angles and shifts in their planes to accomplish a central space with pathways throughout. The positioning of the model on its site allows for multiple layers of space to form. The long, squat planes of the masses produce a feeling of lightness that contradicts the inherent heaviness of the material used. To improve this project, further experimentation into the idea of lightness and layered spaces around a central point would add to the exploration of what stereotomic means.
