Studio Problem 1: Computing Quality - The Number 8

Design an organizational logic from the study of your number's properties. How can a material/structural system be derived from this logic? Using only bass wood elements build this tectonic/structural condition within the boundaries of a virtual 18" cubic volume. To define your number, examine the transition between it and the two numbers with which it is immediately adjacent. How does this transition take place? What are the spatial and structural implications of your particular threshold? Use this along with research on the qualitative/symbolic aspects of your number to influence how you construct the model. How do you extract spatial quality from quantity?

The photos above are study models made throughout the research phase of the project. Below are images of the second phase of the project.
