MY DESIGN FOR THE MUSEUM BEGAN WITH TWO INTERLOCKING L-SHAPED PIECES, ONE STEROTOMIC AND ONE TECTONIC, AND THE IDEA THAT SEEMINGLY OPPOSITE OR CONTRARY FORCES ARE INTERCONNECTED AND INTERDEPENDENT. AS I DEVELOPED MY DESIGN I WORKED WITH HOW ONE TRANSITIONS BETWEEN THE TWO HALVES.AS ONE FOLLOWS THE INTENDED PATH THROUGH THE MUSEUM THEY ARE CONSTANTLY PASSING THROUGH SPACES THAT ALTERNATE BETWEEN HEAVY AND CONDENSED STONE TO LIGHT, ETHEREAL FROSTED GLASS BOXES.

THE RENDERINGS ABOVE DEMONSTRATE THE TWO SEPARATE EXPERIENCES AS ONE MOVES UPWARDS THROUGH THE MUSEUM AND THROUGH THE GALLERIES. DIRECTLY ABOVE IS THE VIEW FROM THE TOP OF A FROSTED GLASS BOX. THE TOP RIGHT RENDERING IS TAKEN FROM INSIDE THE STEROTOMIC LOBBY AND BELOW IS THE SPACE INSIDE A FROSTED GLASS BOX. THE MODELS TO THE RIGHT SHOW MY PROCESS FROM INITIAL CONCEPT TO FINAL DESIGN.

PROGRAM: DESIGN A HOUSE FOR A MUSICAN IN BALD EAGLE STATE PARK, PA. CREATE A SPACE THAT CELEBRATES NATURE AND BUILDING. INCLUDE A SMALL AMPITHEATER, LAP POOL, AND AN AREA FOR THE CLIENT TO PLAY HER PIANO. THE MAIN ELEMENT OF MY DESIGN WAS MOVEMENT THROUGH THE SITE AND THE HOUSE. I ACHIEVED THIS THROUGH THE TWO LARGE CONCRETE WALLS WHICH ANCHOR THE HOUSE ANDCREATE VERTICAL MOVEMENT WITH LIGHT, SOUND, AND CIRCULATION.

THE HOUSE IS DESIGNED TO BE ACCESSIBLE TO THE PUBLIC AT THE MUSIC LEVEL WHICH IS IN DIRECT RELATIONSHIP WITH THE AMPITHEATER. A BRIDGE FROM THE AMPITHEATER TO THE HOUSE ACTS AS A CONNECTOR BETWEEN THE PUBLIC ZONES. THE STAIRS INSIDE THE WALLS ALLOW VERTICAL MOVEMENT IN THE HOUSE, WHICH BECOMES MORE PRIVATE AS YOU MOVE UP OR DOWN, AWAY FROM THE MUSIC LEVEL. THE STRUCTURE CONSISTS OF TWO LARGE CONCRETE BEARING WALLS WITH A STEEL FRAMED ROOF AND FLOOR SLABS.

THE SITE AND THE VIEWS TO THE LAKE ALSO PLAYED A LARGE ROLE IN MY DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS. I CREATED LARGE CURTAIN WALLS SO THE PIANO ROOM AND LIVING SPACES COULD OVERLOOK THE LAKE AND USED THE CONCRETE WALLS WEST ELEVATOIN TO CONTROL LIGHT TO THE PIANO. IN ADDITION, TWO LONG, VERTICAL CURTAIN WALLS WITHIN THE CONCRETE CORE ALLOW VIEWS ACROSS THE LANDSCAPE AND LIGHT INTO THE STAIRCASE. 0

THROUGH RESEARCH INTO THE HISTORY OF THE BUIDLING, I DISCOVERED THAT IT WAS PREVIOUSLY USED AS A PRIVATE MEETING AND GATHERING PLACE FOR AN EXCLUSIVE SOCIETY. THIS PROMPTED ME TO LOOK AT THE IDEA OF INTIMATE VERSUS SOCIAL SPACES. I USED THE ANGLED SIDE ENTRANCE TO SET A DIAGONAL AXIS WHICH I CARRIED THROUGHOUT THE ENOTECA TO DELINEATE THE INTIMATE AND SOCIAL SPACES. THE WINE WALL WAS ALSO AN INTERGRAL PART OF MY DESIGN. I USED THE WINE WALL AS A PRIVACY SCREEN IN THE FRONT FACADE AS WELL AS TO SEPARATE OTHER SPACES IN THE ENOTECA.

PROGRAM: CREATE A MODULAR WINE-WALL DESIGN THROUGH FLAT PACK CONSTRUCTION AS A PRELIMINARY EXERCISE FOR THE ENOTECA DESIGN PROJECT. THIS PROJECT WAS COMPLETED WITH THREE OTHER STUDENTS. OUR WINE WALL DESIGN BEGAN AS TWO SEPARATE IDEAS. ONE UTILIZED A SYSTEM OF EQUILATERIAL TRIANGLES THAT COULD BE CONFIGURED IN INFINITE WAYS AND HELD THE NECK OF THE WINE BOTTLE. THE OTHER, AND FINAL DESIGN, USED ROWS OF SEMICIRCLES TO MIMIC THE SHAPE OF THE WINE BOTTLE.

EACH WINE BOTTLE HAS ITS OWN INDIVIDUAL SPACE ON THE WINE RACK AND THE ROWS CAN BE MULTIPLIED TO REACH ANY DESIRED HEIGHT. THE SYSTEM WORKS THROUGH A SERIES OF VERTICAL SUPPORTS WHICH NOTCH INTO THE CURVED PIECES.

PROGRAM: BUILD A UNIQUE GEODESIC SPHERE AND DESIGN A FACADE FOR IT THAT INCORPORATES IDEAS OF LIGHT AND SHADOW. THIS PROJECT WAS COMPLETED WITH FOUR OTHER STUDENTS. OUR SPHERE DESIGN BEGAN WITH A SYSTEM OF TRIANGLES, USING DIFFERENT SIZES AND SHAPES IN EACH ROW TO ACCOUNT FOR THE CURVATURE OF THE SPHERE. FOR THE FACADE WE LOOKED AT OPACITY VERSUS TRANSPARENCY TO CREATE DIFFERENT SHADOW PATTERNS. WE OFFSET THE OPAQUE, BLACK TRIANGLES INSIDE THE FRAME OF THE SPHERE AND THE PLEXIGLASS FACADE PIECES OUTSIDE THE FRAME TO GIVE THE SPHERE GREATER THREE-DIMENSIONALITY AND TO ALLOW MORE LIGHT TO ESCAPE THE SMALL GAPS CREATED BY THE OFFSET.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS COURSE WAS TO TEACH SKILLS FOR TECHNICAL DRAFTING. I LEARNED TECHNIQUES IN DRAFTING, PERSPECTIVE, ISOMETRICS, EXPERIENTIAL SKETCHING, AND LIGHT, SHADE AND SHADOW. TO THE LEFT IS A SECTION PERSPECTIVE OF THE UFIZZI IN FLORENCE, ITALY UTILIZING PERSPECTIVE AND SHADING.

PROGRAM; TO DESIGN A PIECE OF FURNITURE FOR A SPECIFIC ROOM THAT HAS TWO CAT FUNCTIONS AND ONE HUMAN FUNCTION. THIS PIECE OF FURNITURE FUNCTIONS AS A TABLE AS WELL AS A CAT RESTING OR HIDING PLACE. I WANTED TO CREATE A PIECE OF FURNITURE THAT WAS ATTRACTIVE FOR HUMANS AND BLENDED INTO TO THE ROOM, YET COMFORTABLE FOR THE CAT. THE ROOM I CHOSE HAD LOW, MODERN, DARK WOOD FURNITURE AS WELL AS A CIRCULAR MOTIF WHICH I INCORPORTAED IN THE TABLE SURFACE. THE ENTIRE PIECE IS MADE OF REUSED MATERIALS.

LANYRINTH LABYRINTH ARCH 131S:

BASIC DESIGN STUDIO 1 JODI LACOE FALL 2011 6 WEEKS

PROGRAM: COMBINE A LABYRINTH WITHIN A DORMITORY ON CAMPUS TO LOOK AT RADICALLY NEW IDEAS FOR DORM DESIGN. FOR THIS PROJECT, I ORIGINALLY PAINTED A LABYRINTH TO APPEAR LIKE BRANCHES OF A TREE WITH THE TREE AT THE CENTER AND DIFFERENT TYPES OF WILDLIFE IN THE CORNERS. I INCORPORATED THIS IDEA BY INTERTWINING THE TREE WITH THE DORM ROOM TO CREATE SPACINGS FOR SLEEPING, WORKING AND SOCIALIZING.

PROGRAM: TO DOCUMENT THE EXISTING CONDITIONS OF AN ASSIGNED SITE THROUGH DRAWINGS, SKETCHES, AND PHOTOGRAPHS AND DISCOVER AN OVERALL THEME. MY SITE WAS A MORE FORGOTTEN AND OVERGROWN PART OF THE BUILDING SO I DETERMINED THE THEME WAS “THE BACK”. EVERY BUILDING NEEDS A BACK OR ELSE THERE WOULD BE NO EMPHASIS ON THE FRONT OR MORE INTERESTING AREAS. I ALSO FOCUSED ON THE THE OVERGROWTH OF NATURE AND THE ECOSYSTEM THAT WAS ABLE TO EXIST BEAUSE IT WAS UNDISTURBED.
