Transcript of Space, form and size.
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
Hans van der Laan
-Born in 1904
-He was a monk and an architect
-He wrote Architectonic Space in 1977
-Died in 1991
- The book deals with the fundamentals of Architecture
- It explains how to combine nature, human being and every man-built things
Position in space
The 9 different position and modeling of the space occupied
- Architectonic an addition to natural space
- Define as a shell space
-Clear separation between inside outside
1. Central Court with central Cell
2. Central Court with peripheral Cell
3. Peripheral Court with Central Cell
4. Peripheral Court with peripheral Cell
Nature and architecture
-The house is among the first things man needs to mantain his existence in nature.
-The house must be seen as an addition to nature, so natural space can be completed and habitable for us.
-In the complete housing process there is always a functional relation between nature, material, house and man.
-The architect is the man
who builds houses that will be lived by others, with materials extracted by others. (Technique of building)
-Architecture is born of the difference between the horizontal oriented space of our experience and the vertically oriented space of nature.
-Understanding space, form and size is essential because it helps to develop a design idea.
-Space, form and size reflect in the house the three levels of human existence, perception and knowledge.
Space, form and size
-The natural space-image can be harmonized with the space-image of our experience.
-The architectonic space owes its definition to the mass of the wall, which bounds the space from without.
-By contrast, the space that we experience gets its definition from the activity of our faculties, which determines its boundaries from within.
-We draw the space around us to ourselves by our actions and movement.
-Our existence is sensory, we receive impressions and store images to serve our intellectual activity.
-These images are based on the form that things have.
-The form of the mass is only perceptible when outlined against unformed space.
-The void, the form of the space is wholly dependent on the solid, the form of the mass.
-The inside depends on the wall (visibility), just as the outside is dependent on the inside (habitability).
-Things that are placed in space enable us to measure its extent.
-Space and the mass of the walls must be measured by a unit of volume.
-The size of the volume is known by its threefold relation to the unit: height, length, and breadth.
-The quantity of space is unknowable. There is a non-measurable three-dimensional reality, and an unreal but measurable line.
-Through the union of line-plane-volume we can know, by way of its surface, the size of the volume.

Inside & Outside
Here the representation of inside outside
Created by man for his comfort
Architecture is use to define our
area of occupancy over
the natural space
The movement in space and senses
We have the possibility to move
or whatever we
and through our senses
we can distinguish what is around us
The outside is the world that surrounds us, without that man is touching anything at
The different position in space
Plan a monastery to see the place occupied
We Can see that this can extend to a neighborhood, or even a city
Extend the position in space
