Materiality and Fabrication - Glue-laminated wood.
The biggest part of my design has to provide with shelter from rain and give sitting area. Also I need it to occur some aging process changes. The material has to be available in great sizes and appropriate strength. A glulam seems to fit perfectly. Glue-laminated wood (or glulam) is comprised of many small chips of wood glued together in diffrent directions to create a girder or other structural...
Materiality and Fabrication - COR-TEN.
My design consists of three parts and two of them are going to be made of cor ten. I chose that material because of its ability to age along with time by showing the rust on the surface. COR-TEN Weather-resistant steel works by controlling the rate at which oxygen in the atmosphere can react with the surface of the metal. Iron and steel both rust in the presence of air and water, resulting in...
I uploaded below photos of models of shelters. They aren’t finished. There are only parts of shelters made of glulam. The cor-ten parts are missing. Work in progress.
