Expanding on the findings in their precedent analyses, we developed an analysis of the specific contexts of site and other precedents. Observing program where the dynamics of human interaction and information access are governed by as many social forces while being contained physically and by space. With the analysis of the given site, developing a clear understanding of specific contextual forces helps to inform design strategies.

BLEACHERS

BEDFORD LIBRARY

HAMILTON LIBRARY - Abundance of Teen Resources - Variety of Lighting as well as seating - Designated locations for different activities - Bright directional Lighting - Communal space to interact - Shelving height variation - Accommodated to children/ teens - Excess about of natural lighting - Colorful/ coordinated - Varying Levels - Lots of Natural Lighting within the space

Tend to move towards corners, areas not as seen or populated

- Not specifically designated for Teens - Children are cut off from the adults - Not that different from Adult section - No clear specifications - No change in lighting

After going to the Bedford public library I took away the concept of community and connection between various age groups. I began to diagram the idea of community and later deployed 3 words in order to describe the type of connection I was trying to build my concept around. Importance of how the library brings people together thus implemented my design language of the library similar to a tree: reaching into a community space.

Overlapping/ change in opacity: connection between two people within a community

Molecular diagram and the various age groups interacting with one another and their ties and overlaps.

Transition from one side to the other through transparency

RIppling, one person within the community impacts others

Three main age groups and the interection between each


LEVELING

COINCIDE

SYNCHRONICITY

Elevating or descending. The idea is to change the viewer’s eye perception, moving from one level to the next and breaking sight lines. This allows for people to experience differing movements and create a sense of interest within the space. Though this design language can be implemented throughout the entire space, as though molecular pieces interworking as a whole.

To occur simultaneously, overlapping, coexisting. The change in opacity between spaces. Change of density and visual sight but still coexisting in the same space. Nothing completely cut off from each other but layering in order to change perception.

Meaningful coincidences, parallelism. Unconscious community activity, bring various groups and ages together in order to experience one thing. The transition from one to another and passing of two people and their relationship with one another. Could be central or spiral but never enclosed(continuous).

Using the node and grid system I attempted to map out the location of spaces that were multipurposed, or mutually beneficial. This resulted in locating three main locations: the Children playground, which allowed for parentals and children to react to one another, the multimedia space, where teens and elderly are able to use electronics and possibly ask questions and help one another understand technology, communal space, where everyone would be able to converge to chat, and form a community.

From these various spaces created a sense of synchronized coincidence is implemented through the functionality of the space: through the bookshelves as not only shelves but seating, playspace allowing interaction between youth and elderly, and multimedia space: expansion of computer and technological knowledge.

The initial project begins with the Toren Condominium site. Within this apartment complex is a double height space. With analysis of the area and the facade of the building information was extracted later in the project. Then through the analysis of two various chairs connection points, and chair structural components were extracted as inspiration for a design language. ANTIQUE TETE-A-TETE CHAIR

Thought client analysis, I found the intersecting moments within the home of the client. How certain rooms must be adjacent to one another in relation to program hiarchy and most used spaces. The through diagraming and model making, a language of framed and solid boxes inserted into one another was created.

PATCHING

SPACE WITHIN A SPACE The idea of space within a space allows for a shifting of solid to void, and can be interpreted as slotting, interting, or patching.

Through the spacial models, spatial taxonomies were used and implemented in order to create three variation of design language used in various locations. Through these taxonomies, program adjacencies were used to locate the location in which these taxonomies would appear. Then finally the change between solid, void in relation to rooms and shared space.

The dwelling concept is based on the interpolation of framed elements that are shared/active and enclosed elements that are private. This concept was informed by the investigation into the reupholstery methods used to overlap either the structural framework inserted within the enclosed foam or fabric or the solid surface inserted into the void framed components. Based on important program adjacency an overlap is created. Where the overlap occurs the enclosed solid spaces opens up to the shared framed space. The transition of the framed or solid space creates an opening which increases visual communication into the larger, more activated, common space. The enclosed elements create rooms while in contrast the frames act as boundaries for inserted shelves or hangers for clothes or hanging furniture. 3

These consist of both physical models and rendered 3D models. The physical model is used to be more expressive of the concept and show the structural component while in the rendering one can see how the space is to be furnished and actually used as a dwelling for four.
