My name is Keerthigan Thavaseelan, I am currently studying for Masters in Architecture (ARB/RIBA Part 2). I aim to explore diverse creative skills when working on different architecture projects to present each project uniquely. I aim to learn as many new programs and skills as possible to not only improve my creative skills but to give the best interpretation for each of my projects. I have a strong ambition to work in the entertainment sector for architecture, which is explored through my existing architecture projects, especially the following project I’m showcasing.
The project I’ll be showcasing is called ‘Manston Modulation’, this project explores the uncertain future of Manston Airport, and proposes Thanet’s first deployable community radio station that helps redevelop Manston Airport into a residential landscape.
This project explores the relationship between temporary architecture and permanent architecture through the use of modules and permanent community hubs. The design would also explore how modules can be integrated into the community hub and influence the overall structure.
There were a lot of inspirations for this project, in particular the work of the Architect, Mark Fisher, who designs amazing stage sets for different shows. Considering this project explores and celebrates radio in Manston, I wanted to integrate an analogue medium with my digital work. This could be seen with the final drawings of my proposal, where I rendered the final drawings with pencil drawings. I also integrated spectrogram visuals with the drawings to highlight the ever-changing frequency aspect of radio to the proposal. I used a mixture of different programs for this project, these include AutoCAD, Rhino, Maya, Photoshop, Indesign, After Effects, and Premiere Pro. I have also produced music and a film to accompany this project, to give extra depth. I have provided a link to the soundtrack and have attached the film made for this project.
