Graduation Project: A Microcosm of Granada - Museum and School of Art.  Archive Space. The Museum’s archive is located below the central entrance tower and is buried into the side of a mountain.  The purpose of doing so is to avoid the extremes of climate Granada experiences during different parts of the year by taking advantage of the steady climatic conditions below ground.  The final part of the museum visitor experience is to look down into the archive and see the scholars or artists studying.  The glass screen (top right) enables the visitor to do so without compromising the climatic control of this pressurised space.  Behind the hardwood arched doorways are cabinets of varying sizes used to store sculptural artwork.  Each cabinet has an increased level of climatic control as required by the age and characteristics of the artwork being stored.  This results in the the most efficient use of energy. . . . #architecture #archive #archivearchitecture #library #RIBA #studentproject #universityofbath #architizer #archolution #granada #spain #architecturestudent #archigram #visualisation #thinkingarchitecture #climaticcontrol #studyspace #next_top_architects #arch_more #museumdesign #architecturalillustration #architectsjournal #timber #timberstructures #concrete #brass #architecture_magazine #architecturedaily #instaarch #batharchitecture @archisource, @the_best_new_architects

Graduation Project - Axonometric Drawing. A Microcosm of Granada: Museum and School of Art in Granada, Spain. The project responds to events from Spain’s past and how they shaped the different layers of Granada’s unique urban fabric. Following analysis of each layer, the element that made the layer unique is abstracted and applied to the relevant sector within the building. This differs the user experience as the visitor moves through the building and the different periods of history. Although this user experience is differed in the subtleties - proportion, axiality, geometry, use of light and so on (all referenced back to the city) - a consistent material palette and architectural language unites the structure to read as one architectural piece. . . . #archigram #architecture #studentproject #riba #universityofbath #architizer #archolution #archilovers #granada #spain #architecturestudent #handdrawing #axonometric #next_top_architects #arch_more #museumdesign #architectsjournal #batharchitecture #architrcturalillustration @uniofbath @the_best_new_architects @archisource . .

Graduation Project - Museum and School of Art in Granada, Spain. A public space that intersects a historic city wall, which physically and symbolically disconnected a community of cave dwellers from the city. The space is both the centre and entry point of the museum. The large timber structure provides shading and is assembled using the cut and slot technique (a response to the jigsaw-like ceiling structure of the Knights Room in the Palacio De La Madraza). The central fountain is the first of many seen throughout the building. . . #architecture #dome #studentproject #universityofbath #architizer #archolution #granada #spain #architecturestudent #archigram #visualisation #next_top_architects #arch_more #museumdesign #architecturalillustration #architectsjournal #cutandslot #timber #timberstructures #batharchitecture @archisource, @the_best_new_architects
