Research Question: How can a designer access and document the situated perspectives of relevant social groups regarding the cultural value of Baker School in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Austin, Texas and contribute to their synthesis? The Baker School, owned by Austin Independent School District (AISD), served as a public school until the 1980s when it was converted to an administration facility. Baker garnered attention and raised conflict when AISD offered it for sale in 2011.

STEP 4 chapter 11 chapter 12

Baker foregrounds many factors relating to historic preservation, sustainability, and participatory design. Not only is it a historic resource facing the prospect of adaptive use, but it is also a place of importance to its community. Though AISD decided not to sell it at this time, placing it on the market proved that Baker’s future is of interest to several different relevant social groups. The direct and tangible goal of this research is to assist in imagining a future for this building which is highly sensitive to social context, reflects a sophisticated reading of the artifact’s age value, and is expansive in thinking about, and assessing sustainability. The research is conducted in four main steps. First, the six relevant social groups [AISD, developers, Hyde Park Neighborhood Association, preservationists, proximal residents and the City of Austin] emerge and are characterized through content analysis of discourse within each group. Second, the parameters of what change might be acceptable is defined by tracking value of tangible and intangible aspects of Baker.


Third, multiple design ¬scenarios are proposed based on these values: a senior living complex, a magnet school, and two mixeduse developments. Volumetric exercises are coded to reveal driving logics of the schemes and in so doing enable a more critical and informed discussion. Finally, the design scenarios catalyze discussion among relevant social groups and stand to inform decision making in Baker’s unfolding future.

The result of this research is twofold. First, there is a design product, the design scenarios, which the relevant social groups can use to continue discussion, generate interest, express vision and articulate values.

Additionally there design process itself is a result of the research. The design process created for and established in this research can be extrapolated as a strategy to apply to other projects where multiple points of view need to be sensitively incorporated into the planning and design process.

nonMotorized Boating Facility, Vancouver BC.

University of Oregon terminal project for the Bachelor of Architecture. 2006-2007 professor: Nico Larco

[d]


The nonMotorized Boating Facility project paralleled the program and site of a building under design at the time for use in the 2010 Winter Olympics held in Vancouver, BC.

Dynamic environmental elements ingrained in the site such as tides, wind and light patterns are registered as an orgizational theme in the project.

The less ‘time indicative’ program elements constitute the ‘urban bar’ along Athletes’ Way, while boating, gymnasium and day care functions weave with outdoor spaces to define a dynamic edge to the north, facing the water.

a.


Evoking a sense of time is the central aim of this project. b.

This is achieved through visual connections to changing landscape elements, time sensitive lighting conditions, and distinction between day and night uses with program divisions and mechanical systems.

The buildings possessed significance because of their role in the campus, the significance of their designer (O’Neil Ford), and their innovative construction technique (lift slab).

b.

The new insertions were designed to have their own distinct language, to be differentiated from the original, yet picked up on ideas foundational to the original work, such as lightness, transparency, standardization of component materials, the planar communication of surfaces, and a visual utilization of the surrounding landscape. c.

[d]


Adopting the concept of ‘terroir’ - the notion that the physical characteristics of the land determine the characteristics of the wine- our focus was to generate a built environment intrinsically linked to the immediate site.

In plan, this translated to buildings that wove into the landscape with equal emphasis on both indoor and outdoor spaces, and an omni-directional spatial organization to draw attention to the local natural features, such as the forest edge and the cultivated vineyards.

The wall section illustrates the proposed construction technique of rammed earth, making the building literally ‘of the earth.’

First United Presbyterian Church, Troy NY.

fire damage documentation and remediation drawings. 2011 John G. Waite Associate Architects

[p]


This preservation project involved generating measured drawings of the 150-year-old church, an initial assessment of the fire damage for the insurance company, and remediation drawings for use by the contractor.

First Floor Plan


Because of the excellent and timely work of the Troy fire fighters, the damage was limited to a fairly small area of the church, and so the scope of work focused on the restoration of the street-front portion of the church effected after the fire damage.

Though the exterior work was largely restorative in nature, interventions on the interior were designed to be exposed, acknowledging the contrast between old and new, not plastering over the layers of evolution. Under construction at the time of this writing, the sensitivity of details promises to respectfully infuse new life into the building.

The Equinox, Missoula MT.

full design process for multi-family affordable housing for homeWORD. 2008-2009 MacArthur, Means and Wells Architects

[p]


This project is a development by homeWORD, a Missoula not-for-profit, which has a long-standing, holistic approach to affordable housing that grew out of the simple notion that you cannot build for the future by destroying the environment.


This value, as well as the nonprofit’s attention to generating community, is manifest in the generous, central open space, depicted in the presentation rendering (rendering produced by an consulting firm).

This project is phased in two stages. The project emphasizes its connection to the river and ties in to the local trail system, providing amenity to the immediate residents and the city at large.

The Equinox is sited at a prominent intersection in Missoula on the location of a former bowling alley. Details such as the reuse of the bowling alley lane flooring in the community room, speak to the former life of this site.


The Priest Residence, Missoula MT.

residential remodel for a single family home in the Rattlesnake neighborhood. 2008 MacArthur, Means and Wells Architects

[p]


The Priest family remodel entailed the retooling of space, second story addition, creation of an entryway, modernization of the kitchen, and expansion of the Great Room.

A priority for the project was to develop an exterior aesthetic to enable the home to seamlessly fit into the neighborhood - a connection which had been lost through its vinyl re-siding, erratic window replacement and haphazard front porch.


A meaningful detail arose from a unique condition of conflict at the front porch, which needed to cover the windowwell of a basement window.

A design was derived which cantilevered a bench out from the wall above the window well opening, thus allowing light to pass through. While covering the opening, and providing a built-in piece of furniture for the family.
