suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
kid KITCHAIYA: Primal Parts focused on exploring the possible affects and spatial conditions in architecture by analyzing the heterogeneous composition of biological parts. A set of biological parts were configured then dismembered through the use of butchering techniques. The conditions that yielded from these cuts were harvested based on the necessity of parts. Some cuts yielded spatial conditions and were then applied to the program. The characteristics of these biological parts create an immersive environment—an intensive exchange between architecture and product.
The thesis focused on three representation techniques—ranging from x-ray to 18th century illustration to bio-mechanical drawing. Conceptually they aim to cover two things. One, they depict the shift in affect and spaces of the building as one travels through each floor. Two, they were ways to generate ideas into figuring out the possible performative qualities in the design.
