The visual assignment of this project was to engage in a series of hands-on modeling to develop a sense of good/stable visual forms by building them through the design vocabulary of the three distinct compositions (dominant, subdominant, subordinate). Each of composition was created by using geometric shapes that carried the concepts of proportion, axial relationships, intersection, and contrast.
The design process began by “thumbnailing” the three dimensions of different forms by using the pink foam cores as modeling materials to assemble them into different geometric shapes. The finished compositions were displayed in front of other designers for a discussion. The discussion was mainly consisted of identifying the areas of success and improvement in each of the displayed compositions.
Based on the feedback from the discussion, each of the compositions was refined several times through various sketches and iterative modeling. The final refinements of the compositions were then exhibited in larger scale models and were again displayed in front of the other designers. The refinement of the compositions resulted in positive feedbacks.
