Transcript of Foundation Art & Design Portfolio

Frank Gehry Gehry's work consists of unusual materials which are make his buildings look have an unconventional zany style. The buildings display bold, postmodern shapes and rare fabrications.

Gehry's most famous structures include the Walt Disney Concert Hall, and the Guggenheim Museum.

He continues to be one of the world's foremost present-day architects and will be for years to come. Will Alsop Alsop's work has always been prominent noted for their use of lively colours unfamiliar forms.
Planning is always an essential part of his designs because they help him to discover and explore the basis for his ideas which could then become forms.

He doesn't give function and construction a miss but he likes to experiment with form and function to see which is successful and ideas which could be improved.

Alsop stands in a critical, vigorous position and is against the traditional architectural style and creates buildings which display off the wall features. ARCHIGRAM In the 60's and 70's avant garde designers ARCHIGRAM inspired visions of a technocratic future with thier display of playful, pop style designs.

ARCHIGRAM was formed by architects from London; Warren Chalk, Peter Cook, Dennis Crompton, David Greene, Ron Herron and Michael Webb.

They generated a new form of architecture which rejected the principles of 'Modern' but rather retains the principles.

ARCHIGRAM'S influence has persisted which is visible not just in the group's members but also in other architect's buildings and designs such as Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano. Antoni Gaudi Antoni Gaudi was known for creating architecture which displayed his unique styles such as Art Nouveau, Gothic and Modernism.

His most familiar works include the Sagrada Familia Cathedral, Park Guell and Casa Mila.

He was inspired by natural architecture which he observed , and studied during walks in the countryside or even trips to different places Architecture has been around for centuries and it has shaped and revolutionized the world evoking different styles such as Art Deco, Nouveau, Surrealism,Brutalism, Modernism etc.

In order to categorize buildings into a certain style architects must look at characteristics which buildings have and how they can be striking and eye-catching.

I'm going to focus on how characteristics make the architecture look attractive and prominent . I started my primary research by going to different places and photographing buildings which I thought looked interesting and making drawings of sections of each photo Experiments using different materials based around the style of Frank Gehry's work Silkscreen prints based around the patterns on Will Alsop's work Experimental drawings based on ARCH-IGRAM'S design styles Glass and ceramic maquettes based on the features used in Antoni Gaudi's buildings I produced a mind-map outlining various characteristics which buildings have to make them look more prominent The Urban Environment Kelly Gray Filip Dujardin Filip Dujardin's architecture photography consists of different images of buildings layered on top of each other to create surreal collages and to create a new sense of perspective of showing a altered view of buildings.

This work is called impossible architecture because it gives a purpose of architects thinking twice about constructing these buildings because there isn't really a function apart from decoration in his collages Collages using images off primary photographs as influenced by Filip Dujardin. Primary photographs of buildings with added effects using Adobe Photoshop
