Hard to decide.. Week (8)

Weeks have passed and I have gathered a significant amount of information, only my ideas are still unclear about the functions and nature of the building I want to design. I’m also stuck in the design process as I don’t know from where to start or how to intuitively imagine the interior layout I intend to design. I have to choose first between the two remaining brick Gasometers 1 & 2 of the 5 Gasometers of Värta Gas Plant, they are very similar in design and shape but differ in size, as one is slightly larger.

I am more into choosing Gasometer 1 since it overlooks two streets and the way to it is relatively easier to find. The larger Gasometer number 2, however, may provide extra space for my functions especially that I haven’t determined a total gross area for the proposed interior lay out. I shall probably work on that aspect first before choosing the right building for the project.
