Cube

Modeled with foamcore and basswood

Objective

The Cube Project focuses on the fundamentals of three dimensional space, responding to a series of prompts through an iterative design process using physical models and free-hand drawings. The objective is to demonstrate that the Cube is in fact internally dynamic, understandable in terms of volumetric relationships and open to spatial qualification.

Solution

The cube is designed on a grid using 1.5”, 3”, and 6” measurements. The grid becomes increasingly complex and layered moving from one side of the cube to the other. Axonometric drawings and sections diagram the cube’s internal spaces from different orientations, with the orange delineating the boundaries between spaces.
