7.7 Phase Four- Form

7.7 Phase Four- Form development-2- This stage has looked at integrating the river’s meandering concept after seeing its potential in development-1. This was a response to the irregularly shaped zones which have caused some waste in space. Also, the ramping system needed some re-configuration to make it read as it was descending down from a high point, rather than landing at a low entrance then moving up to zones, then down again. The approach has involved using semi-circular shaped forms (meanderslike) to produce more efficient forms and minimise any wastage in floor area. The ramp is now acting as a river stream that splits into two in order to feed into the private and public zones, as well as linking all these meanders (zones) together.

The generated meander-like plan employs east-west axis, and it was tested on site to ensure that each activity gets sufficient sunlight, considering daylight as an essential healing factor (classified under Feng- Shui’s Heavenly Qi 105 ). Masses, at this stage, were also integrated into land to figure out form-site relationship, and ensure that forms are working with ‘Earthly Qi’ and not against it in order to obtain healing energy. 106 Figure 7.25 form development-2 with summer, winter sun diagrams and prevailing SW cool winds 105 Simona F.
