Maps and drawings provide one way of perceiving and understanding geographic spaces. Here another approach to spatial cognition is addressed. Bin Jiang

Since my last post a lot of my time has been spent researching, model making and burring my head into my sketch book. I have especially looked in greater detail at the brief and programme schedule required by this building and how this effects my original concept design.Below are just some of my “thinking sketches” coupled with some earlier sketches. Following on from an informal crit with a project architect at the office (Napper Architects), I have been looking to the combination of the two.I have already made models (pictures to be posted) and in the following days I will be modelling the ideas examined from this combination.Two projects I have been looking at over these holidays are Cedric Price’s Fun Palace and Archigram’s walking City, more on these to projects to be published. The final image attached is a 3d model of the proposed site with the existing buildings demolished and the Bigg Market shown as one great public space. A stage for the city
February 26th, 2011by Daniel Lewis I saw a thought provoking presentation recently, given by Wenwen Li of the University of California Santa Barbara, the talk was a wide ranging insight into Cyber Infrastructure, its uses for geospatial information, and some of the computational techniques that underpinned the project. One element of the project involved zone design for the greater Los Angeles region, and involved the implementation of an algorithm that was intended to aggregate small areal units into larger zones whilst meeting a number of conditions, principle among these conditions was ‘compactness’. The output looked very much like a single hierarchy of Christaller hexagons, and this got me thinking about the nature of space and compactness. Christaller’s hexagons are the defining illustration of something called ‘central place theory’, a geographical abstraction that idealises settlement pattern based upon an underlying space which is assumed to be isotropic.

This week I was working on adapting my previous method of reconstructing spaces to work with the spherical / 6-point perspective footage that I captured in Paris. My aim was to analyse these urban rooms in terms of their perceived depth for the visitor walking through them, not as a static construction, but as a moving 4-dimensional perspective. Using the projection-based method of calculating depths, I create a 3d which is a subjective representation of the experience of “being in” the space, rather than a literal reconstruction of the geometries. the 3-dimensional scan which is produced, becomes a tool for analysis, identifying the effects of real objects in the scene on the viewer’s perceptions of depth, enclosure, and feelings of interiority and exteriority (represented in the 3d output of the scan process) parisian urbanism perception through a 6-point perspective // realtime 4D-3D

Paper rings by Tithi Kutchamuch and Nutre Arayavanish Designers Tithi Kutchamuch and Nutre Arayavanish of TT:NT have designed a range of fold-out paper jewellery, launched at Origin at Somerset house in London last month. Update: this project is included in Dezeen Book of Ideas, which is on sale now for £12. The collection consists of twelve ring designs, which are laser-cut from paper and sold flat for the user to assemble. Rings are available in a sheet with all twelve or individually. The following is from TT:NT: Birthday Ring is the laser-engraved-fine paper card that can be able to fold into flower-shaped ring.

Ben Aqua, NEVER LOG OFF, 2013 (Limited edition t-shirt designed for #FEELINGS)We are no longer mostly dealing with information that is transmitted form a source to a receiver, but increasingly also with informational dynamics—that is with the relation between noise and signal, including fluctuations and microvariations, entropic emergences and negentropic emergences, positive feedback and chaotic processes. If there is an informational quality to contemporary culture, then it might be not so much because we exchange more information than before, or even because we buy, sell or copy informational commodities, but because cultural processes are taking on the attributes of information—they are increasingly grasped and conceived in terms of their informational dynamics.- Tiziana Terranova, Network Culture: Politics for the Information Age
