i need to create two spaces that evoke emotions in the user, one very cheery happy free and open while the other sad depressed broken and enclosed...how do i do that! how do u create emotions in a space!
Well, don't know how much time you need but if you read " Architecture of Happiness", it should help you out. Basically, scale and material/color will be your two friends here...but more particularly there arrangement. Now, if you can't use materials and your stuck with just a plain form. Depressing space, I feel, would be more confined, where everything follows a particular constrained and repetitive order. Monotonous would a good term. Happy spaces would be more manipulated by the user type environments to adjust to there personality. It's like your "home".
im just supposed u use recycled stuff! and who is the book by?
Alain du Bolton is the author...And I'm not sure if you are using recycled things for the actual model materials or for the materials of the actual space, because if it is the first, then that's just really weird for creating space on a humanistic level. So I will assume you are using the second.... But, the book may/ or may not help you in this particular case. It depends on your ability to expand and manipulate information. Anyways, one thing I recommend thinking about is the material themselves and their behavior in their environment. For example, glass is reflective of light( a thing many humanistic architects love to play with to evoke emotion), Newspapers tell history, remind, and put insight into the future, bottles are not just engineered they are a designed form,ect. Also, think about how we used them before we recycled. Ask, yourself can that idea be manipulated and expanded. I use the term again because it is the key to many successful architecture compositions.
I could give you an answer/concept, but that would be pointless. You have to learn not only what questions to ask, but how to answer them to become a better student and architect.
