IAT 233 - Mass Model Day - Sarphatistraat

Today was crit day for IAT 233's mass models.

Our team, self-dubbed "Glue Wizards" had to build the Sarphatistraat (as referenced in my previous post) by Steven Holl.

Our building was considerably simpler than every other team's architectural precedent: Zaha Hadid's LF1, Patkau's Newton Public Library, Weiss/Manfredi's Olympic Sculpture Park Pavilion, Tadao Ando's Koshino House, and Richard Meier's Ara Pacis Museum.

We will really need to step up our game for the next phase of models as they will need to include the interior but also increase our attention to detail in order to raise the bar of complexity or else we will be graded only to that standard.

Here are some shots of our model:

Here are some shots of the other models as comparison to see how easy my team had it.

 Ara Pacis - They had a lot of details with the windows to deal with

Olympic Sculpture Park Pavilion - Weird angles and plenty of small details

Koshino House - Curved building, and partially on a slope

LF1 - Curved walls and awesome detailing

Another shot of the LF1 where you can see the teams detailing on the windows and wall fins

Newton Public Library - So many weird angles
