The architectural model can visualise a concept in a tangible manner not yet realised by the evolving digital realm. The model can be an end of process representation of the lengthy development process or the initial inspiration from which a concept is extrapolated. Contained below are a selection of models developed as 'end goal' and 'starting point'
Single issue Liminal magazine (2012)
Liminal, by sound and perceived feel, a beautiful word, a mystical sound with a suitably mystical and undefined meaning. It is to disconnect from what is, though not connect to what will be. It is a state of limbo, an in between that reverses hierarchy, questions continuity and dislocates the established structural pillars of life. Liminality is not tied to the consciousness of humanity; it applies still to the subliminal, the unconscious, innate and inanimate. So then, all things exists on the cusp of limbo, close to it's edge yet far from it, to be neither here nor there.
The sub-concept on which this publication will focus on is Identity in relation to liminality. This topic in itself is broad and will allow writers to think and concept freely, keeping the overall notion of liminality in mind. As individuals, we have all gone through some kind of transition in life be it physical, psychological or metaphysical. These changes are due to external factors including but not limited to people, places and cultures.
Liminal is a state of being, vague or barely perceptible. The true essence of people or even objects is often indescribable. There are peculiarities related to identity that make human beings exceedingly interesting creatures, their personalities, traits and dreams. These are ambiguous aspects of evolution that make us who and what we are.
Art Director & Editor
Architecture, a new building, a refreshed public space. Architecture is the built environment around us as it exists past present and future. That is to say a new building does not exist in a vacuum, it affects and is affected by its physical surroundings, climate and the wider culture and people that surround it. The Publication allows the Architect to demonstrate these connections and show tangible progression of ideas and justification, this is what separates architecture from sculpture.
The Poster is a large canvas for the expression of ideas. It is far less personal and detailed when compared to a publication, but can have far greater impact and appeal. Focusing on a single proposition and being able to pique interest in the first couple seconds if exposure is the measure of success.
