Project description: The project is to create an overhead boat and ecological reserve viewing emplacement for the UCLA rowing team facility located at Ballona Creek in Marina Del Rey. This emplacement will be used to shelter the boat launch area, provide a viewpoint for observing and referring the boat races, as well as for birdwatching in the ecological reserve marsh across the river. The goal is to create a dynamic relationship between land and water in the way the emplacement works with both the viewers and the boat launch. As well as, to find creative ways in which to employ structural steel shells to create the form of the emplacement

Project description: This project focused on creating a housing development along the newly completed Expo line in Los Angeles.In addition to looking at the requirements of an apartment complex, this project looked at how the residents would interact with the surrounding city, and how the building could be designed with public transportation in mind. In order to open up the building to the city, and take advantage of the Metro station nearby and the potential pedestrians around the site I programed the site to be partially commercial as well as residential. The center building on the lot maintains the existing building’s enclosure, while opening up the front and sides to house an open air market. The buildings on either side are replaced with apartments, with all of the ground level lots opening up as artist’s studios, where the renters can create or sell their work. The residents have parking availible in the back of the existing shell, but utilize the metro and street parking for customers.

Spiller House

Arch 3A Fall 2012 Professor Berenika Boberska

31


Project description: This project looked at an existing building in the LA area to study different building types. I investigated the Spiller House by Frank Gherry in Venice beach. After finding out about the history of Venice Beach I looked at human movement and scale within the building. In looking at human interactions and movement within our building I identified how specific spaces were used. I was interested in the vertical circulation of the building, especially because the upper three floors of the building are open to eachother, and the vertical space connecting them gives the building a distinct open and connected feeling. After exploring the existing paradigm in the vertical circulation of the building I worked to alter the circulation and how people would interact with the building. To this purpose I added in slides to connect the different levels of the building and allow the inhabitants to gain a new way of experiencing the vertical space of the building. Venice Beach History

1930 Venice is annexed to Los Angeles due to lack of adequate government ability, and entertainment industry partialy dismantled. Oil is discovered and wells put in.

32

In the1960’s Venice decayed into a slum. 550 buildings demolished because of code violations. Gangs and drug addicts inhabited the area, as well as “the Beats” with a Bohemian lifestyle and in ‘67 the Hippies moved in.

Rebirth of the city in the 70’s. Focus on low housing costs for local low income population. 18 mile bike path put in, and starts to draw crowds and tourists back into the town.

Spatial Divide Between Owner and Renter The spiller house was designed as two units on a single lot. The back unit for the owner, and the front unit for a renter. The two units are completely seperate, with circulation that does not cross and seperate entrances and parking. While the two units appear to have interwoven spaces, especially in the central courtyard, the two spaces are completely seperate, and both are accesable either from the front street or the back alley, where they have designated parking.

Project description: For this project we worked in groups of five, starting with researching a case study building. We chose the Sendai Mediatheque by Toyo Ito. After researching the existing building and how it’s structure worked and how the different pieces of the building work together we created a small scale version of the building consisting of part of one of the center rings of pipe structure, two floors and the roof lattice, as well as a section of the hanging glass curtain wall.

Bunker Hill Music Park

Arch 20A Fall 2010 Professor Coleman Griffith

77


Project Description: Bunker Hill is a significant landmark for downtown Los Angeles. It connects people from different ethnic backgrounds and social levels. The site

is linked by the market and California Plaza. Site also acts as a hub for commuters, linking an underground rail sytem to above ground bus routes. California Plaza is located at the top of Bunker Hill and overlooks the site. The skyscrapers and Californa Plaza at the top of the hill are predominatly used by middle upperclass workers, and the market at the bottom of the hill is prodominatly used by lower class workers and immigrants. Part of the goal of this project is to link the two sites and create a reason for the different communities to interact.

Reintroduce the community to the chamber orchestra and reinvent the relationship between the community and the orchesra, and enhance this relationship through architecture.

As an external reference, an acoustic musical instrument was required, in order to embody the spirit of the chamber orchestra, as well as to teach the students about the type of music that would be performed. The study of the instrument should investigate how it creates sound through its form, components and use, and how these principles can be related to the site.

Project Description: The old boiler house on campus used to be the main source of energy production on campus, but with the installation of individual boilers for each part of campus, this main building has fallen into disuse. Turn the boiler house into the new Architectural school for the campus. Create a core in the building that transforms to create different teaching spaces.

As an external reference, an acoustic musical instrument was required, in order to embody the spirit of the chamber orchestra, as well as to teach the students about the type of music that would be performed. The study of the instrument should investigate how it creates sound through its form, components and use, and how these principles can be related to the site.

Cube Project

Arch 10B Fall 2009 Professor Coleman Griffith

119


Project description:

Find an area of unplanned space and create a photo collage of the volumes of space it encompases. Take the volumes and manipulate them inside of a box to create negative volumes. Finally, split both the combined manipulated volumes and the differenced box into layers to create a working template.

Concept: take found shapes and using a 3D modeling program, distort the shapes to create unique volumes. Utilize these volumes to explore the idea of negative space within a cube. Work to create interesting experiential spaces within a simple cube while learning to use a modeling program and learning to set up lazercutting templates. Shapes start out roughly rectilinear and become more dynamic and curved throughout the manipulation proccess.

Fabric Formwork

Arch14 Spring 2010 Professors Coleman Griffith and Dionicio Valdez Group Project

125


Project Goal: Learn the properties of fabric casting and how this mode of casting cement can influence the project as opposed to the traditional formwork casting. Create a system which supports itself and plant life in an interrelated system.

Project Description: This was a group project with six students working together. We decided to create a modular system using the fabric casting method. One of the main goals of the project was to figure out how we could show the attributes of fabric in the final cement model, and utilize these attributes to influence the creation and design of the project.

Study Models and Design Proccess

This model was originally a sphere, with four arms, but when it broke it inspired our design in unforseen ways.

This sketch came from the disscusion about the sphere arms and how they could be used to create a repetitive system utilizing both sides of the curve, as well as the hanging aspect of fabric and how it could be used to collect either plants or water.

This was the last of the study models that did not look like our final project. However, from this reworking of the sphere model, we came up with a physical example of how pieces could interlock and work together to create a system. The holes in the pieces are meant to hold the plants, with the roots sticking down through the holes to recieve either water or soil.

In the final design, the method of construction allowed gravity to pull extra concrete down to the legs of the form, buldging at the bottom where it needed the most stability and thinnng at the top where it needed to be thinner.
