Week 5 – We started to sketch our ideas and used sketch up to develop our designs further.
Brick 1: The idea behind the vertical extrusions on the stretcher of the brick is to emphasise the texture and the vertically of a wall. Timber and standing seam metal cladding were used as precedents to develop the idea which allows the vertical lines created by these other materials to be reimagined in brick.
Brick 2: This brick was inspired by the undulating textures created by the wall tiles as shown in the images below. This gives an almost origami style pattern when repeated.
Brick 3: This brick is a mirror of the previous brick designed for one to fit within the other when stacked. The depth of a wall is enhanced with the inverted face of the brick which almost looks as though it has been pushed in at a singular point.
