1:5 model of a section of the rotunda column. Main body is made of plaster dyed with yellow pigment to represent the sandstone colour. I cheizeled the exterior of the body to illustrate it is a rough surface in real life. Steel column was made of MDF and sprayed painted silver. The insulation layer is made of foam.

Making casting moulds using laser-cut greyboard to cast columns and ring beams for the 1:50 corner model. The materiality choice intended for the building columns would be sandstone with an uneven, rough surface. After casting with plaster/ jesmonite, it will be chiselled and painted to achieve the desired finishes and colour.

Key space identified at the rotunda and new first floor. This helps show where the main circulation should be and if the current stairs need improvements in terms of locations and flow in the building. This will be reflected in further plan iterations.
