InBetween Diagram

Looking into the principles behind diagramming a space, I found it easiest to extract the core elements which define it as a starting point. With this in mind, the focal point of the InBetween House lies within its ability to synthesize multiple irregular spaces into one fluid structure. Koji Tsutsui Architect & Associates attacked this problem with tactics that delve into the idea of negative spaces and spatial relationships. Using this negative space they created what truly is the InBetween House.

Diagrammatically speaking I needed to show these factors through the subtractive methods of carving my book. The depth of my diagram focused around the idea of one cohesive element, the roof structure in this case, connecting a series of diverse spaces. My book showed a map of the floor plan, and each of its separate rooms, while also describing the negative space through the use of a dark contrast on the bottom surface. Yet the component of the books cover was clearly the most definitive part. Although simple in design, it portrayed the thought of unifying a number of diverse spaces, the crux of the home I studied.

In hindsight I see room for improvement within the solution I came to. The spaces themselves should have had more contrast between them, distinguishing the aspect of diversity, having a single planed face failed to show this part of the home completely. I may have also looked into approached the diagram of the InBetween space by carving from the book, with the contrast lying between the black text and the white cover page, rather the additive process of marker. Although there was a clearly room for improvement, the solution seemed to have distinct intentions.
