FORMS, SHAPES, & PLATONICS
University of Palestine College of Applied Engineering & Urban Planning Department of Architecture, Interior Design & Planning FORMS, SHAPES, & PLATONICS Arch. Nagham Ali Hasan 2nd lecture-2nd week 1st semester Visual Training & Sketching (EAGD2101) shapes and forms

Today s Agenda Shape & figure Primary shapes Platonic volumes
Regular & irregular forms Edges & Corners Space Articulation shapes and forms

Shapes refer to characteristic outline of the a plane or surface
shapes and forms

The shape Our recognizing of the shape depends on the degree of visual contrast between the ground and its field A shapes and forms

Form & Shape shapes and forms

Shape in architecture shapes and forms

Visual properties for shape:
Size Dimension Color Texture shapes and forms

Visual properties for shape….
Position Orientation Visual intria shapes and forms

Circle: shapes and forms

Triangle: shapes and forms

Square: shapes and forms

Platonic: shapes and forms

Regular & irregular forms:

Form Transformation: Dimensional transformation
Subtractive transformation Additive transformation:

Dimensional Transformation

Subtractive Transformation

Spatial tension Edge to edge Face to face interlock

Linear forms A result from a proportional change in dimensions.
Or: arrangement of a series of discrete forms along a line. The series may be : Repetitive Dissimilar in nature. Linear form can be: segmented or curvilinear respond to topography, views, vegetation,… . It can be front on, or define an edge of an exterior space, or define a plane of entry into the spaces behind it. Form Transformation 3/14/2009

Radial forms 3/14/2009 Form Transformation

Clustered forms Clustered forms can be organized in the following as ways: Attached as appendages to a larger parent form or space. They can be related by closeness a lone articulate and express their volume as individual entities, or Interlock their volumes, or Can be consist of equivalent in size- shape- function. 3/14/2009 Form Transformation

Grid forms The most common grid is “Square” because of the equality of its dimension. In 3-D the modular framework can be visually organized. 3/14/2009 Form Transformation

Formal Collisions Of Geometry:
Circle & square 3/14/2009 Form Transformation

Formal Differing in Geometry or Orientation:
To accommodate or emphasize the differing requirements of interior space and exterior. To express the functional or symbolic importance of a form or space within its context. To generate a composite from incorporate the contrasting geometries into its centralized organization. 3/14/2009 Form Transformation
