Context, Structure, Duck, Decorated Shed, Venturi. Patel
The original is an emblem of industrialization. It is the homogeneous and the rule. Through methods of reproduction and reduction, the object creates a new identity, invigorating pre-existing conditions.
This research explores the resolution of the replica through the reproduced and the reduced. The reproduced uses the syntax of the original as a framework to produce an object containing the same components, but altered and modifies to the new context. Many towers built around the worlds that reference the Eiffel Tower as an influence, contain components of the tower that have altered and modified to the new context. These tests formulate architectural conditions within the series allowing a deeper understanding of the object. The reduced uses the symbols of the original as a framework to capture the object in a timeless medium. This allows for the reduced to mainly focus on the object without true context. The context is altered to the symbolism conveyed by the object.
