The first document shows the north elevation of my threshold concept design in the chosen site, located to the east of the Brighton Pavilion North Gate. I chose this design as it encourages use of the least popular paths, maintains social distancing, mixes demographics that would not usually choose the longer, more scenic path, and also provides exit options to those inside. The illusion of free will is created through the use of three different path options, however, the centre and right path are enclosed, and do not show much of what is at the end of the threshold, therefore discouraging pedestrians to use these paths. I have chosen to represent the threshold design as weathered copper, as I feel that this material is suitable for the purposes of structural integrity, easy manipulation/shaping, and the general aesthetic suggests to the users the idea of temporary social distancing measures, which contrasts to that of the site, which is made of durable stone. This design has been drawn at a 1:20 scale
The second document shows the east elevation of my threshold concept design in the chosen site, located to the east of the Brighton Pavilion North Gate. This design has been drawn at a 1:20 scale.
The third document shows an axonometric drawing of my threshold concept design, to demonstrate human interaction/use of the pathway options in relation to the commuters. This design has been drawn at a 1:20 scale.
The fourth document shows the mapped essence that I chose within the chosen site. The essence I chose was social/spatial relationships between the placement of surrounding context and the people migrating through the space. One aspect of this that I found interesting was the movement of people in different direction. When entering through the site entrance, people are funnelled through the Pavilion Gardens with a choice of 3 alternate pathways. After a short visual survey, I determined that not only do distance and direction play an important role in influencing decisions, but also other demographical factors, such as age range and group size. The idea of placement and context influencing a persons experience of a place is an option which can be manipulated and experimented with through a variety of threshold ideas.
The fifth document shows a 1:20 scale card model of my threshold concept placed in a 1:20 scale card model of the chosen site.
