The Embankment, Jersey City, NJ

.


Originally a railroad, Jersey City’s Harsimus Stem Embankments are comprised of six massive stone structures, about half a block wide and an entire block long. Through four urban planning strategies, the problem of intergrating the embankments into the city’s urban fabric was addressed; (1) Encourage development and density on the east and west ends, (2) Create connectivity by establishing a path between the embankments to the waterfront (3) Implement a Ferry terminal at the waterfront to Manhattan, (4) Add civic and community programs to the heart of Jersey City.


Addressing the need for community spaces, a Community Garden was designed within two adjacent embankments. To develop a cohesive overall plan, the project starts with a same “AROOF PLAN B” rhythm. The Community Gardens are elevated, to embrace the historical aspect of the railroad. O

Ando Study


The Church of Light is a prime example of Ando’s ability to merge exterior elements with the interior. At first glance, the chapel appears empty, with only simple benches and humble alter, however it is consumed with light and shadows derived from openings in the structure. The Church is brought to life by the rays of light emerging from strategically placed voids in the walls.


Analysis of The Church of the Light Architect: Tadao Ando Wooden Model Summer Studio 2011

During my personal analysis, I wanted to show how the shadow and allowing the shadows to become the architecture itself . The charcoal as the medium. To make the shadow drawings as accurate


and light enhance the architecture. I did this by ghosting out all architectural elements images of the church are very dramatic, I achieved this effect on my drawings by using as possible, I located the azimuth and angle of the sun on a specific day and time.
