Community Revival Critic: Jozef Petrak & Utkarsh Ghildyal The study of context as a potential driver for architectural proposals and examines the profound interrelationship between architecture and the city. Folding Art was used as a technique in generating the overall design and was used to determine the location of functional amenities.

Calming Bass Wood, Metal Flashing, 2 Ply White Museum Board, Foam Core Critic: Jozef Petrak & Utkarsh Ghildyal Interrelationship study of narrative, geometry, materiality and program. Process is the first step, then bridging the gap between studio art and architectural design is the second step, still without architectural conditions. The third step is to use the generated forms from the previous steps and apply them to an architectural condition.

strategy

The relationship between yin and yang is the play between light and dark. Yin is the darker portion, while yang is the ligther portion. The relationship between the two is a cycle like morning and night. As morning comes, night transfer itself to where morning was previously; yin and yang gradually trade places with each other, revealing what was hidden and hidding away. Yin is usually characterized as slow, diffuse, cold, and tranquil. It is generally associated with the feminine, birth and generation, and with the night. Yang, by contrast, is characterized as fast, focused, hot, and aggressive. It is associatedbetween with masculinity daytime. The relationship yinand and yang is the

Critic: Tulay Atak Development of fundamental principles of a specific knot. The process calls for an investigation of it’s natural properties in which a structural integraty, rules of connection, creation of a module or modules, and guiding principles of module aggregations.


Elmwood Gardens Community Garden Critic: Christopher Bardt Our conceptual strategy organizes the circulation of people and the drainage of water along one path from the same point of entrance to the same point of rest. We Along this path that weaves through the site, both the gardener and water come to rest at a reflection pool, a movement inspired by filtration. Structurally, our design is a case study of the systematic yet varied ways grains work in nature to serve multiple, specific functions.


Modular Density The concentration of material across the site was studied with this model to clarify the distribution of building material across the site.


Engraved Path This model explored the subtle slope needed to drain water through the layering of transparent sheet material. A metal ball was placed at the highest point and rolled down the path to rest at the lowest.

Volumetric Mass The density of program along the path was explored in this simple volumetric model. The order in which one meets the program was choreographed based on the progression of work to rest.


Grain The direction and density of wood’s grain allowed us to conceptualize the organization of the site. The constructed elements of the program were designed along the same directional grain to emphasize its strength and physical character. The grain of the planters was designed perpendicular to that of the constructed, thus opposing the two grains of the built and the natural within the same plan.

School House Woods Gherry Critic: Peter Taguri Kindergarten: Translated from German, this educational concept literally means “children’s garden.” The focus of this architecture at this location is to foster fantasy and imagination rather than focusing on security and control. Being a wooded area with a slope of more than 40’ from one end to the other, a child can experience the play of light casting shadows, the bouncing of sounds on a slope and in-between trees, and the spatial progress from one point to the next. By surrounding a child with natural elements like plant life, water, and sunlight, his or her intellectual development can coincide on an experiential level. Through observation of nature’s cycle, a child can learn the basic fundamentals of the physical world: perhaps seeing changes in a living garden, or even maintaining that garden, will foster a deeper understanding of life’s process. Teachers reach their students through discovery-based approaches, allowing self-learning to remain the primary method of communicating a curriculum. Nature’s presence from exterior to inside the classroom will create an organic environment to house the program. An architecture of NATURE, rather than a building, shelters the children and becomes an essential part of teaching and assisting the child in their development as a young human being.

SANKoFA + coMMuNITY Food Desert Critic: Enrique MartĂ­nez Food provides sustenance for life. Fresh food can improve quality of life. By acting as a source for education, occupation, and even socialization, good food offers potential to create better standards of living for consuming populations. Whole, organic produce, when seen through its entire growth process, can affect a community by instilling healthy diet habits, raising awareness about resourceful storage, and generating local economy in the marketplace. This proposed market is designed to incorporate all of these advantageous effects by focusing on three main areas: a greenhouse, a storehouse, and a produce market/cafĂŠ. The greenhouse marries producer and consumer on different levels. First, the glass nature of the building allows for all contents inside to be visible to the public. Consumers will know what their food looks like prior to harvest. Supply will remain evident. In close proximity to the education center, the greenhouse encourages individuals to observe or participate in growing their own food. Research about fertilizers, insecticides, or air quality can become part of an open laboratory and demonstrate healthy farming. An open storehouse displays safe, effective ways to keep food for future use after harvest. The storehouse can serve as a community pantry where local produce is reserved for local buyers. Workshops on canning, preserving, and packaging can continue the thread of education from the greenhouse into this next stage of

food production. Maintenance of the storehouse can also control market price, keeping costs manageable to the local public. A produce market/cafĂŠ allows for more community involvement, providing opportunity for buying and selling. This area brings people together around produce grown on the same land. Some may dine on fresh ingredients taken directly from the storage area or greenhouse. Others may choose to buy the whole food to cook at home. The market offers employment while also acting as a customer to other businesses such as banks, utility companies, transportation services, and advertising firms. In all, the entire market participates fully in offering healthy options for the community.
