Florentine corner of Gotham Street
My final presentation of my 5th semester at school was very intense but very fulfilling. The project is located in south Tel-Aviv at Florentine neighborhood, Yedidya Frenkel street. The main narrative was to take the existing industrial corrosive materiality of the neighborhood and to create a new interpretation to it in a form of a new hybrid building.
I approached the challenge in two different ways:
1. A parametric programming algorithms.
2. Analogy between corrosion effect and the building states.
As to the first approach i took 10 microns pictures of a corrosion in 4 different materials such as : Aluminum, Brass, Titanium and Iron, and created an algorithm that was design to create 3d maps out of the pictures. After i had 4 3d maps the next quest was to convert them into 3d morphology. You can obsorve the final product in the Titanium skin middle building in the pictures.
The second approach was based on the dictionary translation of Corrosion:
“Corrosion is the disintegration of an engineered material into its constituent atoms due to chemical reactions with its
The corrosion perception which i researched this semester is based on the idea that a building ,in their current appearance, will always strive to destruction or depart to it’s smallest particles.
The physical factors for this process are:
2. Nature and Climate
The metaphysical factors are:
2. irrelevant urbanistic context
All that being said, when we take Time and Interaction as a permanent factors we come to the understanding that there is no eternal beauty, there is no permanent
The corrosion theory will not fall to nihilism, it understands that we do need to find the best solution for architecture to exist so it will try to take a step back before all become lost and try to capture the moment before the final demolition
and start the architectural creation from that picture frame.
Enjoy my Art, Soul & Mind.
I wish all of you watching this to find peace with you inner voices that sometimes make us all do stupid hurtful things so your deeds will become love and art.
And he who understands must understand.
