The final iteration of Kinetic Construction was essentially a composite of the previous constructions in both material and composition. The essence of interior spaces held by both the wood and steel constructions translated to the articulation of a dynamic interior space utilized for private bike storage, which simultaneously produced public exterior bike storage. The design of the ground plane was especially significant in this iteration as double slopes were created in order to establish a system of building in which every vertical framing member always remained perpendicular to the ground. This ultimately produced a very dynamic structure which is reflected by its users’ experience when interacting with the structural system.
The tectonic capabilities of steel and wood were intentionally skewed to promote a new and dynamic understanding of conventional construction materials. This “push” was ultimately intended to manifest itself through user interaction and experience. By allowing the structure of the station to become the bike storage (similar to the wood frame iteration), an educational sense of engagement was infused into the project. In terms of presentation, this engagement was also manifested in the production of 1” = 1’ models and model stands, bringing the potential clients and users into an immersive and spatial understanding of the proposal. Constructing models at this scale proved to be enlightening towards the tectonic realities of gravity, material, and construction phasing.
