The Bird is the Word

We are in the process of making our plaster molds that are 14.5″ x 9.5″ x 3″

Building off of our previous iteration of the bird house concept we expanded to thinking of the tiling system as a topographical surface as well as varying the gradient relationship between them.With this pass, we experimented varying using different quantities of modules to assemble our gradient. Through this iterations, we have varried the number of moduled variations from 3 to 6 . From there we developed a simplified topographical tile pattern with only three to six unique tiles. Three of these unique forms are convex to create the birdhouses. The other three form are concave, and are uninhabitable filler pieces.
