MIRALLES'S LINES
CURVATURE ANALYSIS

2008

The following experiment is an attempt to describe through graphic notation the three different types of curvature that exist in the plan of Miralles & Pinos Archery Range. The different plan geometries relate physically to the conditions of the retaining wall, the enclosure divisions, and the landscape edge. Each of these lines takes on different qualities in relation to the geometry that structures their variation. Notating the curvature through lines of tangency, allows an understanding of transformation not only along the curve as a variable rate of change, but also as potential translations between the types of curves as a dynamic of tension and release. The entire progression establishes a field of intensities in which the specific architectural geometry takes form.
