Students set out to look for forms in objects, buildings, parts of buildings, or systems that are not typically considered to be architecturally relevant form. A cement mixer is selected to be analyzed and modified through a series of drawing and modeling exercises that seek to create an intimate understanding of the form itself.
The analyzed geometry is then used to systematically manipulate and transform the cement mixer into something new while maintaining the same language of representation throughout all the drawings. Here the inner spirals are used to split the found form into four components and reconnect the pieces while the concentric circles at varying height levels play an important part in analyzing the transformed object.
