Story behind my idea
Play time with bubbles
With all the research I have done and the understand that I
have of architects and how the work, is that the space
doesn'tt need to be grown up and professional it can still be fun, playful; functional.
I have chosen to design a Designer fashion shop. I want to
reinvent the boring shopping experience and make it
something that the whole family enjoys. Something that
would be just as fun and exciting as play time.
When I was growing up the most fun I had was with balls,
balloons and bubbles. That why I want to convert those
childhood memories into a unforgettable shopping
experience for one of the best known fashion designers
This should would represent the uniqueness of Alexander
McQueens work. It would be just as unusual as his fashion designs that have made a huge impact to the way that
fashion is seen and to the way that designers are going out
of the box with their designs. The interior space would
match the unique outfits.
It is known that most high end fashion
shops are located in central London in
places such as Oxford street, Regent
street, Westfield London and much more.
it has been established that if the shop
looks out of the ordinary and unique
people are more likely to go into them and
browse and spend more there, they are
then more likely to tell their friends and
After considering the perfect location for
my Alexander McQueen shop is Oxford
street, due to being the most visited and
most liked place to shop.
Alexander McQueens work is very unique and over the
top with bold and out of the
The most famous designs
that he has designed are all
influenced by the natural
accruing things such as
wildlife and flowers and
also the naturally accruing
shapes in the wild.
High end shops around London all have a very
different feel and layout. Some are very plain and
some are really over the top with detail. However all
the shops have something that catches the shoppers
eyes and makes it stand out.
The Eden project was inspired by J.
Baldwin's Pillow Dome . Its located St
Blazey , Cornwall
The domes are multiple greenhouses,
they are constructed from steel frames
The architect Nicholas Grimshaw had
designed each pot to have its own
heating system so that each dome could
represent a different environment that is
needed for the plants.
J. Baldwin is an American industrial designer and
writer. Baldwin was a student of Buckminster Fuller ,
his work has been inspired by Fullers principles . Baldwin is noted inventor of the geodesic "pillow
He has written and published numerous books and he has
developed inventions, mainly architectural designs, the
best known of which is the geodesic dome.
These geodesic domes are spherical or partially spherical
shell structures based on a network of great circles on the
surface of the dome.
These domes have created challenges on how to make
them air tight and rust proof. It took some time to get
these right but the architects and designers have
succeeded in making the perfect domes to house all sorts
of tropical plants and keep the environment as the plants
like it with minimal effort these domes are called the Eden
These are drawings/ sketches of
hat I was inspired by after doing
my research into different
architects and buildings. I have
taken parts of the already
existing designs and made them
into something that would go
with what I would like to do and
These two designs have been created to combine nature and
buildings in some cases skyscrapers together. These are all
futuristic designs that can be build on land and in water. The
designs look like grape like structures or bubbles. These bubbles
also look playful and colourful,
When I looked at the designs for the structures that
had nature in them I noticed that the structures
skeleton wasnt hidden. This has inspired me to do a similar design of spheres with the structures skeleton
not hidden to add effect and character to the building.
I have looked at bubbles and how
the link together to form a structure.
I then have drawn my own bubble
like structure with interlocking pods.
These pods could become individual
mini environments that could sustain
different animals plants, fruits or
vegetables. They could also be for
different categories of objects.
Model one this is a model of what could be a
shelter or it could have glass
windows making it a unique
shopping space. I have been
inspired by architects who dont hide the skeleton of the building . I think
that the skeleton and the structure
adds to the character of the building
therefore I want my model to
concentrate of the structure and
how it adds to the building
These are sketches of what I think the
model would look as a drawing and
simplified. I have only taken the most
important pats of the model
I like the roof structure but I dont like the scrunched up balls because they look
messy and it wouldnt look very attractive.I will be taking the roof structure and
develop it further.
These are models that I have done of an inside of a
shop. I have been inspired by the skeleton structure of
the geodesic dome, this is the development of the roof
structure from the previous model.
I was inspired by the model that I made using
scrunched up paper and card. I have developed the
previous model into a roof structure the curves into a
point at one end ,
Modern and unique design it
brings a nice contemporary
All of these rubber balls and rubber band balls
associate with childhood. The children use to try
and bounce the rubber bouncy balls as high as they
can go, they also come in a variety of different
colors and images on them, I think this would be
great for the circular objects in y shop to have
different colors and graphics on them. It would
bring an element of fun into the boring and tiring
This is a model that I have been inspired to make after looking at
the molecular structure of a vitamin. This could be a main feature
in a shop or a staircase. I have decided to do a spherical model
because I think that simple is more effective and it can be
cooperated into the surroundings better than a straight line
This is what I have designed as an individual structure that would
go in the shops as storage and . I think that this would work well if
it was made in different sizes and colours. It would be like
bunches of balloons grouped together to create a sculpture that
could be used for displaying the clothes that the shop sells
I have been inspired by the structure of the DNA strand to
draw a staircase the is free flawing and wouldn't distract
the costumers from the rest of the shop but just add to
the experience .
These staircases look similar to the DNA structure, I
would like to have a similar staircase but on a bigger and
I have looked at water balloons and normal balloons and I got
an idea of having individual pods suspended from the ceiling,
the pods would have a hollow inside and thats where all the clothes would be. The pods would also be different colors and
sizes to add playful feel to the shop.
I have done a model to represent
bunches of balloons after I
researched them. I think that the
model works well but it would be
too bit to go into the shop and it
wouldnt have the same affect as
loads off smaller spherical
Steven Ma is an architect that specializes in 3D
designs. This work is for an exhibition that was
held in Hong Kong in 2010. in his designs the
materials that he shows are like bubbles which
also links into my work.
My work links to Mas work in a way that he uses simple clean lines and he likes to design easy
flowing spaces and sue curved lines.
I think that this approach would suit a modern
21st century new and exciting shop.
Ec-O_Bench infuses nature into pedestrian traffic zones by
creating a self-sustaining eco-system that envelopes sitters
in living and growing plant-life. ec-O_Bench collects and
filters rainwater and harnesses sunlight using thin-film
This design is a similar design of what I am trying to
achieve. Steven Ma has design an eco friendly bench, I
would like have the same idea of making my shop more eco
friendly. I also like the futuristic but simple design that I think
would go well in my shop.
This is a trail model for what I would like my interior
