The Spatial Assembly project is centered around using linear perspective to situate simple forms within a space. By reducing objects to their essential forms, they can be more easily constructed in the confines of the grid. The format of an office space is derived from the prompt: Imagine every Foundations student received their own private studio space of 200 square feet. Included in the space was t0 be a minimum of four objects (structural, sitting, working, personal). Scale and volumetric form are the priorities within this assignment.
Understanding linear perspective and using a grid to scale accurately is the highlight of this project. I aimed to create a comfortable space inspired by my living room at home. I made a 13x16x13 spaced room on paper using pencil. I struggled immensely with the ceiling light as a partial sphere protruding from above is an unusual image to internally visualize. I kept each room piece simple, even maintaining the type of plants consistent in texture. The shading is meant to reinforce the illusory 3D form; however, it is too dark in some areas, and more implied lines would improve the naturalness of the objects. Overall, I feel the simplicity of the room balances my sporadic personally, which makes it the ideal studio to ground me and help for optimal focus.
