Scale and Model
The technique I have chosen for my model is slabs and columns and spatial loops (OMA). OMA (Office of metropolitan architecture), it is an Dutch architectural firm that operates by Rem Koolhaas, Elia, Zoe Zenghelis and Madelon Vriesendorp. But the main architect is Rem Koolhass, who was graduated from Architectural Association in London. Instead of having each level separately, he use the oma technique making the levels upon each other in horizontally and vertically. OMA developed their idea which is by connecting every levels together, creates an overview of a single and vertical lining structure. Moreover, OMA’s concept of creating invisible walls is then to highlight the interior space and the structure of the building. Although there are no front,back and side in OMA’s work, it can still represent its structure as a volume
In my model I have use the balsa woods and the white foam. I only use white foam for the base to so then the building look outstanding and and can see clearly. The model is in scale of 1:200.
