Creation of the model
Joint work on the model with the family members. Based on the consideration of the number of rooms and their orientation to the cardinal points, we began to create a model of the house …. this method of working allows bringing not only the strengths of thinking, but also the strengths of feelings and will into the design process. Children also participated in the project. Each family member brings liveliness and joy into the process of creating the model, feeling the context and building on the work of others. It gradually results in mutual agreement about the creation of the house. The film captures the moments when houses on adjacent plots are created. One can then be well aware of the suitable location of the house itself.
The model of the terrain was created from cardboard and it shows the southern slope.
It is important to involve as many future users as possible in the design creation. When working on a model, circumstances that one would not take into account will emerge from the work the model…
Expressions of the initial signs of the form, which came as an inspiration from the spiritual world to the fingertips of clients, were further developed by joint work. The creative activity was accompanied by a joyful mood.
By this method, inspiration and common ideas of the client and the architect directly enter the shape of the mass. The method of working together allows the design process to bring not only the forces of thinking, but also the strength of feeling and will. Every participating person brings liveliness and joy into the process of creating the model, feeling the context and building on the work of others. It gradually results in mutual agreement about the creation of the shapes and zones of the garden. All participants are able to mentally connect with the emerging design in a better way. The modelling allows a free formation of shapes. It’s a way to organic architecture.
