Architectural Analysis: Towards New Apartments

  • Kanchanjunga Apartments:
    Height, 275'
    Opened, 1974
    Floors, 27
    Architect, Charles Correa
  • The x-ray axonometric drawing analyzes the different proportions of the units in relation to their spatial order in a transparent execution. 
    1/32"= 1'
  • Through a section drawing it was possible to analyze the original interconnection between the different unit types in relationship either the upper or bottom units.

  • The axonometric drawing of Kanchanjunga Apartments as a whole showcases the relationship between the exterior openings
    1/32"=1'
  • In the making of the exploded axonometric drawing I was able to understand the complexity of the interior spaces. And by isolating each one of the type units it is possible to understand the relationship between the interior circulation and exterior openings.

  • Type A: Model Unit
    1/4"=1'
  • Type A: Model Unit
    1/4"=1'

  • Interior: Light and Shadow analysis. 
  • The gradient was divided from the lightest being the highest to the darkest being the lowest, and then from there a surface was created conserving only the perimeter of the original unit types
  • .
  • Study model analyzing the different light elevations.

  • A new exploded axonometric was drawn to bring back the original understanding of the complexity of the unit types assemblage with the new geometry.

  • 1/4"=1'
  •  Using the previous exploded axonometric drawing, surfaces were generated  to provide the experience of the new dynamic spaces.
