INTER.ONE Tools for Architecture

Tools for Architecture is a research unit based at the Architectural Association in London formed by a team of architecture undergraduate students and lead by Space Popular directors Lara Lesmes and Fredrik Hellberg. Work at TFA aims to develop new experience driven design methods.

PLAN

 

The perimeter of a building is different from the space inside, giving a sense of enigma.

Visitors enter the space and walk through long wiggly pathways and then enter the forest of columns. Repetition creates a visual echo and a feeling of endlessness.

Users are going through the narrow corridor and find themselves in a small room. The experience is stimulated when moving from a small space to a suddenly large one. This stimulation provides a sense of expansion (or awe).

When entering, they only see a single small object at the centre of the space, creating a sense of monumentality.
