Ts Interim

Here the pdf of the TS booklet in process.

While I am looking at it, I am having too many things I think and it is not clear which is my investigation and design. I am preparing the speech for tomorrow and let’s have as much feedback as possible.

I would love to finish two views as well. I will bring the models and the playfield as well.

I am going to model some props of the bridge, as I do not know yet which material to choose, I will make it out of board and then we will see later..

The idea is to have 3/4 for Friday with a cone on top to see the perspective of connection from the right point of view. Tonight I am back to the pinball workshop. I need to fit the flippers, connect them and add some led light in the playfield. The converter need to come as well today.

The most important thing for me this evening is to write my argument:

-Why pinball?

-What are you stating?

-Is it about chance/collection or assemblage?

Updates later on!

The idea is to have a main drawing as the land of bridges. Then zoom in some details to explore in Ts and make models. Start editing the bridges and creating perhaps one path which is moulded in these bridges.

Then island land. Then,…..ahem. will see!

In Natasha’s words. (the other one)

I am not looking on how to build a pinball machine, the pinball is the way to navigate through the land.

I am making the sabrina land.

The land of connection, is bridging, physical landscape. Start building bridges, the bridges form the landscape. Once I have all these scapes, I can start talking about illusions and connections through the tricks. Hologramme is an example…etc

First I need the scape . so do the bridges.

From Marina Lathouri

Dear Marina,

Are you in my head? I should have read you before.

Aristotle’s study on the generation of animals: “distant objects would be seen best of all if there were a sort of continuous tube extending straight from the sight to that which is seen.”

It would be plausible to add that the vantage point has some relation with the little hole, through which one branches off, obeserves,notices, takes into the frame, and places into perspective.

How does the interaction between object and viewer operate?

The etymology of the fragment comes from latin “fragmentum”  or frangere I break. It ascribes significance to the whole, as a small detached portion of something.

These fragments provoke and mobilise new realities. The collector rescue objects from their original functions, he introduce a new context with other similar objects which create a new configuration.

fragments imply a form of organizing state, the form of work in progress.

Alberti used the idea of precedent, selecting from vitruvius parts of architectural knowledge which he needed. He constitute knowledge for assembling new constructs. establishing within the patronage system, a larger contexr, a myth of cultural continuity.

fragments can transport ideas, move at will into perfectly congruent formations. The landscape composed of unary objects from little worlds. eccentric maps of curiosity, expressing a longing to inhabit it.

Sunday mood

A quick update on the project:

Yesterday I have been to the pinball workshop, we have taken some bits and pieces from old machines, we edit it together the main playfield as bumpers and slingshots do not work all in a row etc.

Due to cost, I will cut the wooden boards and make the cabinet as well, this will allow me a more deep understanding of my whole structure as soon as possible hopefully!

Next Saturday I will be back there, building the main layer, in the meanwhile my friend Giacomo is ordering the pieces as flippers, wheels, lever and lights from USA.

Now back to studio:

1. Assembling the White Book

Then into TS:

1.Assembling the book and re ordering the drawers

From models to documentation

I am on the track of creating the path of the ball throughout the second layer of time: now from cardboard illusion to perspex perhaps. I will draw some different scales instead of a house or a dice. Some views will help in few hours! Here the video:

Game on!

pull pin advertising

I am constructing a machine which act as a parallel with life. After you graduate you are pushed out in the world out there. You never know where you are going to end it up. Each path lead to a random office, a random project. Once you find a place, a project starts.

The first thing that you are dealing with a project is SCALE: a desk, a room, a building, a garden, an underground.

Then you pass into the TIME schedule: how long will it take to do things, waiting time, material arrival, planning applications, very fast design stages or very slow.

Finally, the CONSTRUCTION: the architect gain experience and start building its own project through all the pass stages.

Although throughout, there are moments of SUDDEN CHANGES, of variables which you need to overcome in order to proceed.

In the same way, the PINBALL MACHINE act as CHANCE, it plays the VARIABLES which you insert in the PLAYFIELDS and go through the LEVELS(drawers).

The first playfield are the grains. You smash them in ordert to start.

The ball then go to the first drawer: SCALE. (Palladio, Soane) interior/exterior/miniature

then TIME(Cedric, Bikini) erasure/destruction

finally CONSTRUCTION (Peggy, Duchamp) fragments/collection/






Dice/not dice




The player dimension is where you can build your own project, your own world, your own city. I am now starting to design the mechanism, the layers , the connection and the whole machine.

New term

After a whole day of reading/sketching/re-reading/re editing of ideas…I came up with a list of things to do or think more deeply about. here the schedule:

1. Tranforming my 2d drawings in moving images, Similar to this

2. Satuday 16th of January I am going to my friends in East croydon, we will build from scrap pieces the new pinball

3. I will start drawing the drawers of the pinball and start sending the drawings to Germany, where these will be done properly on glass. There will be 4 or 5 different playfield drawings

4. I am starting as well to build some fragments so they can slot each other. I need to think about which fragments to choose or if it is just to show the mechanism of it.

5. I have started some TS research in the outlook of a comic book. What I like about it, is the fact which becomes a manual and the layout allow me to jump from references, to the pinball to small details.

6. This is my reading list. AMAZING REFERENCES

7. I finish the thesis! Yuppppiiii (ahem, thanks Manolis to answer me. Yes, I am chasing you)20160111_192837 20160111_192834 20160111_192831 20160111_192821 20160111_192801 20160111_192746

Hockney and inspiration

I have just seen the secret knowledge, suggested by Manolis. I wrote down some bits and pieces and I am seeing a way to start my conversation on Friday. As well, I am reading now The world of Madelon Vriesendorp at the moment to add some more inspiration to my head. I would like to have some writing for tomorrow as well.

This is what I wanted to achieve today  and I failed. From tomrrow I will re-do the cnc model as it is just very wrong.

I will draw a bit now, thinking of doing some bits and pieces on top of the plans to have a Perry Kulper effect:

Halleluja day

I would like to have 2 mins of silence for anyone who is doing a CNC model.

——- respect for cnc. cnc is hard. meshes are even harder.

So now that the main landscape is into the machine, and the islands which will go on top are on the way, I am making the small pieces which you play with.

Plan for the next days:

1. Work on the bikini island model

2. work on the pieces of bikini island on all drawings , lineweight, frames, etc

4. work on the palladio plan/axo/view and make a model as well. Thinking to make it out of wood and cast it in cement. Having the negative of it.

5. I had a TS tutorial yesterday with Amin and something interesting came out. I am having one with Evan and on Friday with Javier. Will make a diagram/drawing later on..

Further updates later on!

From world to world…

The Bikini island need to have:

-shock waves around the bombing

-Have two islands, the bikini island which the governament wants to bomb and the spectacle island with viewers and people watching it live

-High resolution and realism of lines/details

-Build the model with the landscape and then the architectural layer on top

-the way I can document the model should be through a dental camera

-parts of the model can be zoomed in/different scales

Long story- infinite possibilities-update







lines just to update on the fact, that I had to change the rhino files as too many lines made it crash..GOOD DIRECTION THEN!





Bikini plot-in the making….

After completing the starting zone PLAYFIELD1 you will land on the beach of BIKINI ISLAND. Here you hand in your INSTRUCTIONS, depending on your SKILLS you will be directed to the group, following THE NATIVE. You will help out the natives to collect their ITEMS and deconstructing their HOUSES. After completing this, you will take the BOAT to RANGERICK ATOLL. Here you will collect the FRUITS from the trees and pack them in boxes, which need to be transported to the KWAJALEIN ATOLL. Here your job is to construct NEW HOUSES for the natives, cutting wooden palms trunks and flattening the sand. Complete these by going into the woods along the path and clicking the banners and KILLING ANY USA SOLDIER. You will be attacked by one of them and brought it to the COMMANDER. Here in his office, you will hand him FRUITS AND ANIMALS which you have taken previously. He will send you to the US TROOPS in the SUBMARINE department, here you will hit the RED BOATS, which are the target for the nuclear bomb.

While bikini island slowly get destroyed, you try to find a way to stop this taking control of the submarine and direct it to the tv station. Once you hit the tv channel, the world will never know that bikini atoll is getting destroyed so there will be no spectacle. You surpassed the first level. Congratulations.

Easter egg star wars

Easter egg on google translate!

Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off


Few things to work out during the weekend:

These plans need a lot more details, moreover we need an aim for each plan. Where am I going? why? what am I trying to achieve each time?

Overlay few elements, which put in relation the layers between each others.

Prescribe sequence-individual variables

1. Palladio-what’s the story in the name change? going up and down the stairs? Look at each plan of Palladio’s villas.

2.Peggy is talking to people all the time, travelling to meet new artists, get new work.

3.Cedric wanted the cage to be taken off, it is about freedom, the user in power not the architecture. The architecture is erasing in name of freedom.

4.Bikini island, obliteration of space, destruction

5.John Soane, collection of artifacts, transformations of spaces and objects together

Scale does not matter, the easter eggs need to be hidden and everything needs to be in plan. ALIGNMENT matters a lot. COHERENCE (moreover, verbal coherence) matters more than anything and I am failing at it. So put yourself together Sabri!

ahem, then, Mr Felix suggested a wonderful idea of reading my axos as plans. But this is another story and maybe I will give it a try after Sunday.
