How can transparency be introduced to a shelving system?
For this project, the student group experimented with four aspects to design a shelving system; transparent, gradient, perspective, and dissolve. Transparency is introduced to provide opportunities inside and outside, alongside gradient will provide different levels of transparencies. The perspectival placement of the rods manipulates the way sunlight enters the space.
Students experimented with different tools in order to conceptually model the different concepts that they proposed. By using rods of different lengths and dimensions, the students were able to understand the manipulation of the different levels of light entering into the space.
