Project for 'Ornament Theory and Design' elective at YSoA w/ Kent Bloomer and TF John Wan
The project was inspired by the ornament and character design of popular video game Okami, ornament of Savage Tribes as described in Owen Jones' A Grammar of Ornament, and the famous plates of Louis Sullivan in A System of Architectural Ornament.
The project begins in a two-dimensional exploration of these three inspirations and developing a new ornament design. Following this was an exploration in three-dimensions, using repetition and mirroring to create an architectural 'capital'.
The final exercise explores the idea of applying ornament to site, in a two-point-five-dimensional exercise in ornament relief. [In Progress]
