Quick Shade - Insulated Bamboo Shades.

Quick Shade

quick shade

  • At a fast rate; quickly

  • any area of the body that is highly sensitive to pain (as the flesh underneath the skin or a fingernail or toenail)

  • accomplished rapidly and without delay; "was quick to make friends"; "his quick reaction prevented an accident"; "hoped for a speedy resolution of the problem"; "a speedy recovery"; "he has a right to a speedy trial"

  • promptly: with little or no delay; "the rescue squad arrived promptly"; "come here, quick!"

  • shadow: cast a shadow over

  • Screen from direct light

  • represent the effect of shade or shadow on

  • Darken or color (an illustration or diagram) with parallel pencil lines or a block of color

  • Cover, moderate, or exclude the light of

  • relative darkness caused by light rays being intercepted by an opaque body; "it is much cooler in the shade"; "there's too much shadiness to take good photographs"

Having exhausted the possibility of modeling this thing meaningfully with clay (I took one final stab at it, with really dicey results - not photographed), I switched over to Rhino, a pretty unfamiliar program, but one which I knew could do something Sketchup does only with tremendous reluctance: curves. It can also perform Boolean operations - that is, do stuff like "Subtract Thing One from Thing Two." This was conceptually crucial - I wanted to build the holes and then in the last move, subtract them out of the block.

Before Rhino, I had tried working with Form*Z (too finicky) and 3ds Max (insufficiently precise). Rhino proved perfectly adequate to the task, and while I suffered a few corrupt files along the way, I soldiered on, made frequent backups, and taught myself the rudiments of the software. It was a really satisfying process. I've said before (even about this project) that whenever you learn a new piece of software, you essentially have to sacrifice a project to the learning curve. That's not entirely true in this case - I feel really good about the project and learned the software. So...go me!

Anyway, here we see an early step in the process, with me having basically laid out a simple version of the main interiors and a first stab at the blobular voids in the back yard. Note that Cadwell's concerns from the last round are well-founded: there's way too much STUFF here. Most of the design labor from this point on would involve figuring out ways to re-arrange program so that there could be less mass visible in the back. In the end this could only be solved by abandoning my elevated mud therapy space (sigh) - but at this stage we have some other unnecessary elements. Note the windows at the back right corner - at this point in time I have the parents' bedroom back there! It would eventually migrate back into the main "building."

Note that each time the program elements got moved around, I would have to re-build the climbing voids from scratch to work around them. This is even more tedious than it sounds.

I have lived here for 14 years...Dining outside in the Summer was never that pleasant because the table umbrella just never gave enough shade ...so this Summer I purchased a "Quick Shade"....240 sq ft of shade....awnings on both sides have 5 up and down positions....Works great ...Hasn't taken flight yet ....but may have to come down quickly when the Diablo winds come up.
