Description

“Every building must start with an excavation of ground. We begin by cultivating a terrain, negotiating geology, typology, making a platform, defining a territory - a raft, a footing, a plinth, a floor. The enabling works. Fundamentally the floor is infrastructural, a foundation and surface to support the building and its life. And more, the floors delimits a territory, an interior prospect, for the eye and the body to explore. Its horizontal surface is gravitational and fluid providing resistance to the controlled falling of vaulting limbs. The floor traces the inevitable wear of the feet that strike it, bearing testament to occupation by mapping habit. It tempers both our environment and manner. Yet given its primary founding status as the point where the building becomes the ground the floor is overlooked, physically and literally. Before shelter, before enclosure, there is only ground. This semester our masters studio is firmly rooted to it.” – Colm Moore, Andrew Clancy 2014

The Master’s programme at Queen’s University Belfast begins with an in depth examination of a fundamental element of architecture. The work in this publication consists of various precedent studies of constructed floors. Each study comprises of drawings; plan, section, axonometric, and model photographs to best illustrate each study.

This is the third of a series of publications recording the work of this studio. Previous publications include circulation as space in “Stair Rooms”, and the lighting of spaces in “The Elaborated Window”, with this year’s theme of “The Constructed Floor”.
