Prologue Project Overview

Introduction

The affordable housing project houses a philharmonic rehearsal and venue space and responds to the existing social constructs within the South Shore neighborhood and within the broader context of Chicago. The Philharmonic blackbox aims to serve as a catalyst for positive relationships within the community as well as the different social identities that engage within this buiding due to the programmatic construct of the building. Conceived as a functioning icon, the building is centered around the South Shore community and the residents of the building. These relationships are further enabled by the use of SUPERSPACES.

Prologue / Main Render / Description text

The first of the super spaces is the SUPERLOBBY. A dynamic space that combine the Philharmonic and the residential lobbies. It forms a lobby that becomes more than a transition space with added functions such as a music library, cafe and an unpaid public viewing box into the Blackbox.

Adjacent to the SUPERLOBBY is the SUPERSTAGE. It is the epicenter of the building. It contains the Black Box in the middle with a public plaza and private courtyard on opposing sides allowing for flexible stage configurations. This creates a space that has the potential to host intimate productions as well as full scale festivals. Through the expansion of the blackbox, the stage can utilize the adjacent spaces to become one single continouos space.

SUPERSPACES

Superspaces

In creating the connection between the 3 social identities, the building is a social condensor creating social interaction through the action involved within the spaces.

Action Social Condensor

Sociospatial Architecture

These spaces were conceived based on their ability to enhance the social capacity of the space through a variety of field conditions. The ability for spaces to unify their diverse elements while respecting the identity of each individually.

In reading this space, the interpretation should rely more on its spatial syntax and ability to perform as a social architecture, as opposed to its formal qualities.

Intermission Precedent Studies

22
Prologue / Main Render / Description text
“Welcome to the first intermission, please have a look at our precedent studies that we deeply studied throughout the semester while we change scenes.”

Taipei Performing Arts Center

A space that redefines the idea of a multistage building creating stages that interconnect within the building in a way that makes the performance venue accessible.

Intermission / Taipei Performing Arts Center OMA/ “A lot of our inspiration for the SUPERspaces came from Taipei, in the way it created a social condition around 3 stages and a public loop.”

23

Via Verde

This project is a model of sustainability using terraces that step down as a wide variety of occupiable green spaces for the residents.

24

Intermission / Via Verde Dattner Architects/ “The carving out of the mass to create terraces was inspired by the green roofs relationships of Via Verde.”

Wyly Theater

The Wyly theater is the ultimate form of transformation in a theater where the stage has the ability to transform in a wide variety of ways to support varying types of performances.

Intermission /

REX+OMA/ “In making the blackbox functional, we were inspired by the large scale variability of the Wyly Theater.”

28 Act II / Joint Concert

”Welcome back, as you can see we changed setting and are now performing as a joint concert with local dancers. As part of our mission to create social transformation, we work to create events involving local artists, singers, dancers, and performers. Let’s cut it in half to see how this works.”

How SUPERspace Works

Variation

The ability for the stage to transform.

Expansion

The ability for the stage to expand into other spaces.

Passivity

The ability for the building to provide a visual connection to the blackbox.

Viewing Decks

The blackbox hosts residents (Left) and the general public (right) through portal windows increasing music accessibility. The ammenity level exists above the blackbox with windows that give a visual and sound connection to the blackbox below.

30 Act II / Social Conditions / “In our stage both the general public and residents are invited to our productions with or without a ticket through the theaters infrastructure constantly providing a visual connection to the blackbox.”

Variation Transformation

The stage, fixed with actuators can transform moving up and down to different configurations that can accomodate events setup for the philharmonic, the public, or the residents.

Thrust Stage Arena Stage Studio Stage

Proscenium Stage Dinner Stage Bipolar Stage

Act II/ Variation / ”This infrastructure also allows for the blackbox stage to transform. The stage panels can move up and down, seating can be stored underneath the stage. Our space can be leased out to different groups within the community supporting a wide variety of event types.”

Act II / Expansion / “Supporting the variety of events, the walls of the blackbox can open up to expand the venue creating more performance space, adding seating, or opening up to the public.”

Conditions There are 3 spaces that are associated with the Blackbox that form the superstage. Each space individually serve its own function, but is also designed for the ability to become part of the blackbox.

Passivity

Visual Connection

The massing of the building was designed around the blackbox where every part of the building functions to provide at minimum a visual connection to the things that are happening in the space.

Act II / Passivity / With this expansion, the traditional hierarchy of a concert hall is broken. Now the residents of the space are put at the fore front of the viewership experience creating a constant visual engagement with the building.”

33

How The SUPERlobby Works

Transitional Destinations

The superlobby creates a synergy upon the transitional spaces for the philharmonic and the residents. They are flanked by a cafe and music library on the first level, and with its verticality works with the idea of passivity to bring an additional connection to the blackbox.

What is the SUPERstage?

The superstage is the ultimate form of social interpretation within the buildng creating an event space that is more grand and impactful than what either of these programs could provide on their own.

Flexible Internal Relationships

The stage has leveled out to become a flat stage for all guests to freely move around the festival.

Permeable Boundaries

The doors of the stage have opened up on both sides where the orchestra is now perched up on the courtyard.

Multiple Pathways of Visibility

This event is now has a visual connection to every aspect of the building from the amphitheater to the courtyard.

“Becoming a festival, the seating is stored under the stage, the doors are opened up and the people come together creating a transformational space and experience. To be a resident here, it is necessary for you to have some level of interest in what is happening here.”

51 Screen

The Perforated Metal Screen

Sustainability

Through its perforation, finish, and texture the screen both diffuses and reflects light better managing indoor temperatures, and providing more natural light for the courtyard.

Privacy

The screen system allows one way visibility for the residents to see out, while combining with a multi layer system of sound isolation for the units.

Aesthetic

In its iconic nature, the screen provides the backdrop to the blakcbox theater unifying and enclosing the courtyard/ residential space. Window

Reflection

This semester has been extremely intense, challenging and rewarding all in one. We’ve been pushed beyond our limits to do more than we’ve ever been asked to through the extensive iterations of the 3 variations of our concept. The process of working through this project has been the most enriching providing us both with a strong foundation as we head onto our future endeavors. Chip, thanks for the continuous efforts to push to succeed and not settle for anything less, and providing us with a strong support cast
