An Exercise in Iterative Massing


The ‘accidental landscapes’ form the basis for architectural interventions on the island. In the last exercise, 18 ‘realities’ of the site were revealed, corresponding to the number of times the dominoes were played and the site reconfigured.

With a critical viewpoint, a number of ‘accidental landscapes’ are selected for architectural interpretation. An exercise in iterative massing is proposed 9 times as a means of reconnecting the ‘accidental landscapes’ to reality (or, to the site). It is hoped that the visualisation of a variety of advantageous and disadvantageous options will provide the project with an informed starting point. It should be noted that the resulting volumes will be judged on the number of solutions and atmospheres created rather than on any formal aspect.
