We analysed different vertical circulation to achieve variation in movement, through diagrams, plans and axonometric sketches  in the given projects. We tried to understand the physical, structural and material qualities of these elements and their effects on the scalar relations and spatial experiences. I picked three examples and made the models of these examples in the scale of  1/5 and 1/10 with proper details. We understood the stairs and ramp qualities in the vertical circulation also these concepts present different experiences in a space.
