DCA Exhibition- Grey Gardens

 

Yesterday I went to see the Architecture exhibition at Dundee Contemporary Arts.  There were a few things that really caught my eye in terms of ideas and shapes that would relate to the design of my container house.  This building really caught my eye.  It has the feel of Falling waters by Frank Lloyd Wright and the overhang I want to achieve by stacking my containers.  The concrete struts also look similar to the idea of using recycled pallet crates to clad the outside of my shipping container.


  

I quite liked this photo.  It has a very strange mixture of architecture almost being taken over by nature.
  

These images and models I thought looked similar to what could be achieved using shipping containers.
  

This spiral design really caught my eye.  A few weeks ago after making my Fibonacci crochet blanket I had the idea to play around with this form for the inside space of my workshop.

In the middle of the exhibition was a table of forms I liked which I thought led them selves very well to jewellery.
  
  

Architecture exhibition- Weather Forms

Last night I went to a great exhibition in The Lighthouse, Glasgow called Weather Forms. The exhibition was about architecture and weather.  I was impressed by a lot of the show and it was a big space to fill.

 I was particularly impressed and proud of Inness Yeoman’s input, he helped out with two big installations as well as hanging a huge wall of paintings.  I have known Inness for his whole life.  He has been working for architect Paul Stallan of Stallan-Brand helping to put the show together.

Inness hung this instillation as well as make some of the models to the left bottom of this photo.
Behind the hanging exhibition was a laser cut city map which I found quite interesting.

   Instillation which Inness Yeoman also helped with as well as a huge wall of paintings he hung.
 Had a great evening all in all, I also want to thank Angela Dickson for great shipping container chat and my essential PhD starter kit she gave me.
