What if we let journey determine the space?

Time Ritual Caricature

To start off my exploration, I had done a 24 hours time ritual caricature on the activities I had done in a day at which area of the house I occupied at.

Demographic

Here, I collated the data from the amount of time spent in each space based from the documented time-ritual caricature journey.

Circulation and zoning plan

Based from the time-ritual caricature, I documented the journey of the different point of occupancy of the spatial areas and the intensity of time spent in each space with the lightest colour being the least amount of time.

Thumbnail sketches

Afterwhich, I explored the thumbnailing exercise by having a quick sketch over a minute for each thumbnail based from the time ritual caricature. Each thumbnail shows the scene that I remember at each activity.
Based from this exploration, I learnt that the objects which I am able to remember more vividly and draw more detailed are the ones that I had used more. These are the essence of the space to me. However, I faced some challenges as well as the drawings did not turn out the way I had imagined in my mind and it is challenging to draw in details over a minute. The purpose of the thumbnailing method serves as how one sees the space and how one uses the space.

Design

Based from the time ritual caricature data, I collected the data regarding the amount of time spent in each area of my house. I spent 11hours15mins in my bedroom, 5 hrs in living area, 2 hours in smoking area, 1.5 hours in bathroom, 1 hr in kitchen and 30 mins in service yard. I then determined the spatial area I needed based from the amount of time I spent in each areas. For example, because I spent in average 11hrs 15 mins in a day in my bedroom, I would then need 42.2m sq.
