Transcript of Copy of Untitled Prezi

Think of architectural elements – columns, piers, arches, ledges, level changes -- like punctuation marks between words. Just as commas, periods, and exclamation points help articulate the meaning of written words, architectural features can articulate the functions of spaces and make them more meaningful. Kinesthetic

The sensation of movement or strain in muscles, tendons, joints. Space Articulation & Territoriality, and Kinesthetic Quality of Space Before the modern revolution, interior spaces were a series of boxed-off rooms, each function neatly wrapped in its own cocoon. That does not suit today’s lifestyles. We are more casual and demand more flexibility in the use of space. In a sense, we are all modernists whether we admit it or not. Kinesthetic In architecture, the kinesthetic quality of space
refers to the ability of a person to move freely
in a particular space. When a space lacks articulation, it can be uncomfortable or even chaotic. When one space blends indiscriminately into another, when you don’t know where one function ends and another begins, the plan lacks articulation. Even the furniture can look out of place when there are no architectural clues to guide us in the use of space. Notice how, in the illustration below, one area sloshes into another. You don’t know where the living area stops and the dining area starts. The foyer falls gracelessly into a corner without much thought. The entire space is unarticulated. ARTICULATION ARTICULATION OF SPACE Sketches SPACE ARTICULATION Territoriality is a term associated with nonverbal communication that refers to how people use space to communicate ownership/occupancy of areas and possessions Members:

Zipagan, John Benedict H. TERRITORIALITY KINESTHETIC KINESTHETICS The ability to feel movements of the limbs and body. In speech means speaking
clearly in order to be
understood and convey
meaning. In architecture, articulation
means to delineate spaces so
different functions are clear
and architecture is meaningful. The capacity to use your complete body in expressing ideas and feelings, including the facility to use your hands to create or transform things. TERRITORIALITY attachment to or protection of a territory. the behavior of an animal in defining and defending its territory. Open plans offer greater freedom for architects. However, with freedom comes responsibility and sometimes it is shirked. Designers and architects seem at a loss, at times, making wide open spaces warm, inviting, and - perhaps most important - meaningful. Freedom in space planning has yielded plans that seem, ironically, unplanned. On the other hand, articulation avoids ambiguity. It simultaneously makes spaces more interesting and more functional. Architectural elements can establish articulation without making a plan confining. Columns or piers between living and dining areas, for example, can preserve openness while subtly defining functions. Overhead ledges, level changes, a jog in the plan, columns or arcades are a few of the many features that can be used to articulate space. Now the space is alive with meaning while still flowing effortlessly, one function to another. It is articulated. TERRITORIALITY I. Definition of territoriality

II. Significance of territoriality

III. Relation to architecture A good example of a building with kinesthetic qualities of space is the old imperial hotel in Tokyo designed by frank Lloyd Wright. It provides the Westerner with a constant visual, kinesthetic, and tactile reminder that he is in a different world. Walking down these halls, the guest is almost compelled to run to his fingers along the grooves. The brick is so rough that to obey this impulse would be to risk mangling a finger. With this device Wright enhances the experience of space by personally involving people with the surface of the building. THE END Spatial Organization 1. Centralized Organization A centralized organization consists of a number of secondary spaces grouped around a dominant, central space that is generally regular in form and large enough to gather a number of secondary spaces about its perimeter. The central organizing space may be either an interior or exterior space. 2.Linear Organization A linear organization consists essentially of a series of spaces. These spaces can either be directly related to one another or be linked through a separate and distinct linear space.
It may also consist of a single linear space that organizes along its length a series of space that differ in size, form, or function. In both cases, each space along the sequence has an exterior exposure. 3.Radial Organization A radial organization consists of a central space from which a number of linear organizations extend in a radial manner.
The central space of a radial organization is generally regular in form. The linear arms, for which the central space is the hub, may differ from one another in order to respond to individual requirements of function and context. 4.Clustered Organization A clustered organization relies on physical proximity to relate its spaces one another. It often consists of repetition, cellular spaces that have similar functions and share a common visual trait such as shape or orientation. 5.Grid Organization A grid organization consists of forms and spaces whose positions in space and
relationship with one another are regulated by a three-dimensional grid pattern or field. A good example of a building with kinesthetic qualities of space is the Old Imperial Hotel in Tokyo designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It provides the Westerner with a constant visual, kinesthetic, and tactile reminder that he is in a different world.
