A SPACE FOR PLACE

knowhere_spaceForPlace-01.jpg

Document elements within a location that aid in its DEFINITION OF PLACE. These could be items of people, decoration, noises, or other. For each element, develop a symbol that can be used to exemplify how and where that element exists within the location. Develop a map of the space, adding the symbols of these place-making elements as needed. How do elements of place inform movementwithin a space?


INCLUDE:

  • figure
  • void

  • simple symbols

  • detail necessary to explain the purpose of each element

MAY INCLUDE:

  • human profile if appropriate

FOCUS:

  • relationship of elements to each other
  • scale/ proportion

AVOID:

  • over-simplification
  • photo-realism

Materials, sounds, lighting and other elements help to establish a place within the enclosed space of walls, and that “place” defines the behavior of those who interact that location.

By looking at what elements within a given area encourage this understanding, it helps define how those elements might be used in other contexts for similar results.
