In the fifth exercise, the beginning to plug Grasshopper “the plug-in software� has taken place. It was about creating a form that looks like a crown or so, and creating the chunks that will modify the form easily, and then bake them to export them to another software.

Process book


Taking a glimpse at

History Designed by architect Frank Pierce Milburn, Savannah Union Station was completed in 1902 at a cost of $150,000. It was an example of Spanish Renaissance and Elizabethan styles, the main feature of which was an octagonal rotunda measuring 80 feet in diameter that served as the general waiting room. Exterior walls were made of pressed brick with granite and terracotta trim. It was a pride for Savannah citizens, but that didn’t last for long. The Union Station faced its demise on 1962 due to political issues, as well as the project of creating the i-16th highway.

Observing the

StageS of Site development Savannah was founded in 1733 by James Oglethorpe with a vision of an egalitarian society. Each colonist was granted a relatively small plot of land within the city, a five acre garden lot in the area surrounding the city, and a 45 acre farm lot just beyond the garden lots. In the early days, no colonist was allowed to accumulate more than 500 acres of land. The area now known as MLK, Jr. Blvd. was originally within the garden lot area of the city. As the city continued to expand over time, it naturally expanded into the garden lots, as they were no longer necessary for their original agricultural purpose. By 1799, the city limits had expanded to Oglethorpe Avenue and in the early 1900s, the city encompassed the garden lots currently occupied by the I-16 exit ramp at MLK, Jr. Blvd. 11

Station History

The current Little Rock station, known as Union Station, was built in 1921. The original structure was built in 1885 and burned twice, in 1900 and again in 1921. After the 1921 fire, the only remains of the 1900 structure were the clock tower and the Italian Renaissance arches. The depot is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as “MoPac Station.� The earthen-hued, sprawling, four-story station has 110,000 square feet and encompasses 5.6 acres. The impressive Prairie style station features horizontal lines, a flat roof, and a majestic clock tower.

Back then..

50


And now!

51


The Union Station at Little Rock have been a social place more than a train station! The train as a transportation system isn’t very popular as before, but we can observe how it the stations became more like a landmark and a place to gather people. So considering the stations like a commercial area would benefit the station more than being just a structure to set people to travel via its trains.

The union stations unified theme! Most of the union stations in the united states are having the same structure approximately, while changing the exterior design to give a special essence to define the place and time.
