This image illustrates the latest process of finding the best routes around the building using the different horizontal planes. The key routes that have been established are over the central canal berths and then a decent into the horizontal planes that is representative of the residential area that sits below the canal and high tide level.
This is a project that I'm undertaking in collaboration with a colleague from Nottingham Trent University. My role in the project is producing the early perspective sketches for the project and then come June some CGI renders. The project is a proposal for a technical training college in Ol Pejeta, Kenya.

The diagram below highlights the key conditions that need to be maintained upon approach to the building. Since the thesis is about the change of landscape and edges its important that a clear view along the southern bank is outlined followed by the church and greenery in the background. This then dictates that the area most appropriate to have a high density is the northern section of the mass and the southern section is dedicated to permeability and low rise.

This photo was taken this morning using a Canon EW-60C borrowed from my friend David. It has got to the point where positions for finial visuals are required and this is one of many potential views taken this morning.
I have spent this morning designing around certain light conditions and the photo below is one of such moments when the morning light is reflected by the silt more than the water. This also helps with the exploration of the different edge conditions that the building will help control.

This photo was taken from my phone today so excuse the quality. The next stage is to integrate all the horizontal planes to translate the language of the surrounding landscape conditions into the building. Another process photo will be posted tomorrow to document these stages.
