Ken Yeang has created breath-taking eco architecture in which are completely covered with greenery . Zaha Hadid however has created sustainable buildings that have particular lines and shapes that distinguish the surrounding areas. I chose Zaha Hadid because her buildings stand out and juxtapose with their surroundings, although Ken Yeang's eco architecture opposes normal conventions of skyscrapers in urban areas with the structure being aesthetically beautiful to the environment.
Zaha Hadid's commercial buildings with their various functions would be more straightforward to use as with Ken Yeang I would be completely re-designing his buildings and would hardly be using any of his ideas. There is more scope and possibilities with Zaha Hadid's buildings. The main change would be making the building residential and not commercial. When I was designing my model I chose to focus on the mobile Art-Chanel Contemporary Art Container commissioned by Karl Lagerfeld. I chose this building because I particularly liked the shapes Zaha Hadid created with this pavilion. I have done a series of drawings from which I have chosen my favorite from which I created my model using recycled materials. Challenges I faced whilst making my model were that it was hard to use all sustainable / recycled materials in my model as I had to use a glue gun to stick my walls and floors together and the glue used was not recyclable or sustainable. However the foam board which I finally used, consisting of polystyrene and card is biodegradable and the paper I have used has been recycled. During my project the difficulties I encountered were that it is was difficult to try to create curves and so I had to change the building that I used to focus on and so selected a linear building, Maggie’s Centre Fife, Kirkcaldy, Fife Scotland, UK instead of the mobile Art-Chanel Contemporary Art Container . As a result of this I have re-designed my building so that it is linear. The process of my model can be divided up into several parts:
Cutting Materials to size
Fixing parts together
Securing model Aim Focus My aim for for this extended project was to design and create an architectural model and attempt to use sustainable and recycled materials throughout. My focus was to design a residential building that has links to Zaha Hadid. My process was to create a model using recycled and sustainable materials which could be reflected into real life construction materials in a building. Is it possible to design and produce an architectural piece using sustainable materials in the style of Zaha Hadid?
