ROOF PLAN The column placement, site, and paneling all resemble the diagram. All aspects are based on visibility, yet function for the various uses of the site. The Market structure consists of columns that act as acoustical barriers. These columns are placed according to the visibility of the site and oriented and turned in order to accommodate both the transparent visibility while on the site, yet is an attraction to visitors approaching the site from far away. The columns support perforated metal panels that are used to filter the sun in various ways, the more visible the area is, the more opaque the panel is. There are four different types of panels, voids for non visible spaces, large perforation for low visibility, small perforation for more frequent visibility, and opaque sun panels for full visibility The roof structure varies in height also dependent upon the visibility. The columns support the panels that are not in contact with a column by suspending them off a hinge joint from the top of the column and connecting a rod to the panels by a similar hinge joint. The panels that have contact with the columns are welded to the columns and connected to the suspended columns by spider connections.

The darker the red, the more visible that location on stops, B, and Metro stops, M. The red represents the optional the site is to locals. paths that can be taken to arrive at the site.

The combination of local and temporary traffic and the visibility of the site from the beach.

SITE: BARCENOLETA BEACH, BARCELONA, SPAIN Ultimately three major pedestrian viewpoints were considered and diagrammed. These views from the boardwalk, neighborhood streets and restaurant area next to the site were laid on top of each other treating obstructed views as voids. This was analyzed and serves as the foundation of the project. The darker the red the more visible the spot is to all three major viewpoints. The white areas are spaces that no pedestrian can view the site.

CONCCERT

The goad is to use visibility in order to bring people into the market. Taken from the furthest visible point of the site on the boardwalk, the obstruction of trees are mapped above then created into diagrams to the right. The top shows the blocked views from the trees lining the boardwalk, the middle demonstrates the views obscured by trees in the near by plaza, and the last one shows views of the local residence from adjacent streets.

INTERACTIVE CENTERR 4 ST. CROIX, VIRGIN ISLANDS

Located on the Caribbean sea, the interactive center consists of a place to hold offices for the researchers as well as house small endangered sea creatures, viewable to the public. The spectacular views and sea life motivated the design. The shape itself of the building is inspired from a fish complete with scale like panels to help shade, as well for privacy and protection, yet allowing natural daylight through the glass like slits in the panels for sunlight. Large glazing windows are used to admire the spectacular views as well as to bring in natural daylight. The second floor is offset of the first to keep direct sunlight out, various walls are slanted outward in order to prevent this as well. Its unique shape and public entrance welcomes the public to this learning center. Visitors are directed to the stairs circling around an aquarium to bring them to the interactive exhibit area. The second floor allows the accommodation of the touch tanks and other systems used to protect the creatures. The offices and learning rooms are located on the first floor. The first and second floor balconies allow visitors and employees to enjoy being by the water

CABLER CAFE’ 6 SUE HASWEEL PARK, BRYAN, TEXAS The cafe’ was inspired by a word that Helmut Jahn coined, archinnering. It is the integration of architecture and engineering, formal, functional technical and environmental issues which is both beautifully crafted and sustainable. It intrigues the viewers by its looks, but relies on its structure. Rather than hiding such intricate structural detail, this cafe’ celebrates it, intriguing costumers and bringing them into the cafe’. The cafe’ rests upon an exciting curvilinear site, which mirrors the adjacent creek running next to it. The consumer walks up a ramp with suspension cables tying back to the main support located inside. This main supports also supports cables that suspends a bridge across the creek which holds exterior seating. Interior seating is planned around the column support inside. The cafe’ sells all pre made food, as well as coffee, and sealed drinks. The back room houses an office for the manager, storage, and an employees rest room.

HENRY FORD’S LIGHT TOWER 8

This light tower was inspired by Henry Ford and is located near his birth place resting upon the bay in Lake Michigan. It focuses on using industrial style designs to incorporate characteristics of the Model T car. It differentiates public spaces such as the living area, kitchen and dinning versus the private spaces, bedrooms and bathrooms. The public spaces act as the cab of a car while the private resembles the hidden parts, such as the hood and trunk of a car. Certain elements inspired by the model t including the grill, exhaust pipe, windows, and headlights allowed different lighting and shadows to occur.

FLAT IRON HOUSEE 10 GOLDEN, COLORADO

Located on the mountains of Colorado, this house relies on the mountain for support. The curved shape mirrors the topography and form of the mountain to create extra support. The huge glass windows facing south bring in an abundant amount of sunlight, warming the house during most of the year. The unique roofing structure also allows only indirect sunlight to come in. The form was inspired from the Flat Iron Mountains with its unique roofs. The open, glass area of the house represents an open floor plan, for public places. The tower is made up of stone, a more opaque material to accommodate bedrooms and bathrooms, private spaces. The tower has a circular staircase leading up to the roof top deck to enjoy great views in the warmer parts of the year.

DESIGN WEEKK 12 COLLEGE STATION, TX In design week the landscape architecture, urban planning, and architecture students were divided and split into team. The project was to take an exisiting site located at the corner of Univeristy Drive,and Texas Ave in College Station, TX (across from Texas A&M University) and discover a new idea of using the space within four days. The goal was to come up with a successful site plan and help sell the project with perspectives, sections, and other diagrams.

RESIDENCE OF ART SHADOW BOXX 14

The residence of Art House in Dallas, Texas by Lake Flato inspired this shadow box. It’s unique floor plan and elements were abstracted and transformed throughout the box. The bottom layer is the original floor plan, with red gradient celebrating the great views out of the house. The plan is rotated and extruded to express the structural load bearing walls and main axis of the house. The plan is transformed once more to show how the unique roof shapes adds to the complex design of the house.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGNN 16

This cityscape light was constructed entirely out of one, four by eight sheet of ply wood. The entire light is all made up of natural connections and contains no bolts, screws, nails, or glue and can simply be taken down. The only thing not made of plywood is the lamp shade and light. The shade shows the New York City skyline and is made out of an eighteen by twenty four sheet of paper, metal rings to keep the shape, and one eighth inch dowels to hold the metal rings inplace as well as thee light. The cord is weighted at the end on the light and it swivels around wheels, that at are connected to dowels that support the arms, in order to adjust the height of the light.
