dc.description.abstractThe intention of this project is to study methods for the coordination of internal spaces and external visual elements on a building. Prototypical models of such coordination that I intend to study and on which I will base my mathematical analysis is Andrea Palladio’s (1508-1580), Palazzo Chiericati (1550 – 1557) in Vicenza, and Villa Cornaro (1551 - 1552) in Piombino Dese.The scope of this project will include the design of a large public building [a council of chamber] located within Auckland's Aotea Square. The building will require the composition of numerous spaces, and possibly buildings of varying sizes and hierarchies. There will be important relationships between the internal rooms and the exterior public plaza, the entries, and public and semi-public spaces contained within the building. The existing buildings will provide a built-environment context which will require a formal response, both in terms of spatial and external composition. The choice of building programme will reflect the need for a several large main spaces, which will be linked through a series of series of rules, or parameters, so that the proposed design methodology can be demonstrated... The spatial requirements for a council of chamber can be broadly classified in three main volumes;Entrance Hall. Assembly Hall, Council Chamberen_NZ
