Lecture 3

Product

On all seven scales, a product may be viewed as having the following elements - form-space, nodes-paths and illusion.

A form may have the following attributes:

A space would be structured as follows

A product may also be an illusion.

Students are to experience their own product making or the production of their product, the geodesic dome:

The geodesic dome as a product may contribute to the change in the built environment on different scales:

  • Object: producing components.

  • Interior: upon assembly of the components.

  • Building: as the above

  • Premise: that it shall be located on a site.

  • Urban: the dome spine

  • Region: not applicable

  • Global: that the production is documented and available online.

Another product in the production of the dome spine is derived from the class intention as follows:

This "essay" as a product shall determine the sites of the dome. The production of the proposed Dome Spine may therefore be seen as

IDENTITY. It is here that the identity of the team as a product (a series of products from sketches, report, logo, motto, construction method, materials etc) may be created.
