Moving Elements

Moving Elements

The first of my moving elements is am elevator. The elevators are a simple yet key element within my school as the use of air space and elevation require vertical movement in minimal space.The design is hexagonal in shape and move through the trunk like poles supporting the buildings.

The second moving element is the buildings themselves that rotate upon their vertical axis. Due to the large amount of glass used within my construction and unshadowed areas achievable through their height above the ground, I decided to utilize the solar energy to warm and provide light to my architecture. My architectural concept was based upon the environmental impacts of the building industry and the lack of urban environments within the city, and that is what inspired me to make this tree like structure,
