DURBACH BLOCK JAGGERS

DURBACH BLOCK JAGGERS

Phoenix Gallery, 2016, 1:20

This process model for Durbach Block Jaggers was one of a series of prototypes for a multi-use performance space as part of the Phoenix Gallery in association with John Wardle Architects. At a scale of 1:20 the model acted as a vista for the experience of the proposed architecture, allowing the designers to literally get their heads inside the vaulted design and experience the curvature of the interior atrium. The plywood version involved multiple laminates of plywood, which were then CNC milled separately and glued back together to create the multitude of curved experiences in the building. A plaster and foam version was also made, allowing easy reassembly and disassembly with which the architects could test the color finishes of the concave architecture.
