Applications of Technology Spatial Relationships
Spatial relationships There are basic ways the spaces of a building can be related to one another and organized into coherent patterns of form and space. • Space within a Space • Adjacent Spaces • Interlocking Spaces • Spaces Linked by a Common Space
Space within a Space With this concept, a large space contains one or more spaces within its boundaries. There should be a clear differentiation in sizebetween these spaces for this concept to be affective. Farnsworth House, Mies vanderRohe Plano, Illinois
Space within a Space To attract higher attention value, the contained space may differ in shape or form from its enveloping form. Glass House, Phillip Johnson New Canaan, Connecticut
Space within a Space The contained also have a different orientation creating a secondary grid and residual spaces within the larger space. Moore House, Charles Moore Orinda, California
Interlocking spaces Interlocking Spaces result from the overlapping of two spaces and the emergence of a shared space. Each space retains its identity and definition as a space. The resulting form may be interpreted several ways.
Interlocking spaces Plan for St. Peter, Donato Bramante & Baldassare Peruzzi Rome, Italy The interlocking portion may be shared equally by each space.
Interlocking spaces The interlocking portion may merge with one of the spaces. Pilgrimage Church, BalthasarNeumamn Vierzehnheiligen, Germany
Interlocking spaces Villa at Carthage Le Corbusier Tunisia The interlocking portion may develop its own identity and serve to link the two spaces.
Adjacent Spaces Adjacent spaces are the most common type of spatial relationship. Visual and spatial continuation depends on how the spaces are separated. A wall with an opening A row of columns A free standing plane A change in level or surface material
Spaces linked by a common space Two spaces separated by distance can be linked together by a third, intermediate space. This intermediate space can differ in form and orientation from the two spaces being linked. It may also be equivalent in size to the spaces being linked.
Spaces linked by a common space One-half House, John Hejduk The intermediate space can be linear in form to link two spaces together or join awhole series of spaces which have no direct relationship.
Spaces linked by a common space The intermediate space can be a residual form created by the orientations of two linked spaces. Caplin House Frederick Fisher Venice, California
Spaces linked by a common space If large enough, the intermediate space may become dominant and organize a number of spaces about itself. Palazzo Piccolomini, Bernardo Rosselino Pienza, Italy
