Patterns/ Textures

In this section we not only are analyzing the foundations of these textures but recreating them based on a process. First starting with an iteration of that texture then skillfully choosing a transformative action to place on the original picture.

Tranformative Process

Taking what is learned from the process of transformation, it becomes applied to a 4”x 4” pattern in order to create a 12” x 12” design. Through acts of repetition, stretching, and inversion the original tile is completely altered into something that can be extruded and physically created.

This 12” x 12” tile is made up of six 4” x 4” tiles. Each tile is indivually carved into with a bandsaw create the shape given by the template made from finalized deisign. After carving each tile they are connected using twelve splines that have been carved according to the shape of two tiles at their connection points. They are then succurely attached to each other on each side in order to create a smooth transition betwen each piece.

Light studies were made in order to capture the effect of sun within the space. We can understand that during earlier times the glass curtain waall becomes more reflective than transparent and throughout the day only becomes more reflective. When night hits, the glass becomes compeletely transparent creatinga clear visualization of the site itself.

Final Design Studio II The Insculative Cover serves a purpose of creating a new environment within another. Providing not only a visual relief but also textural. This piece not only incorporates pattern but also texture. People are able to physically interact with the wall fully while also expireince the patterns given from shadows created by the new facade.

The site consist of the corridor of the Architecture building, stairwell, and curtain wall system. The site itself allows those within it to see outside and around distance areas of the building. This site allows the abiltiy to communicate from one spot througout many areas of the building; visually from outside of the building and verbally inside of the building. The use of color (Yellow walls) gives the illusion of light which can exoplain why it is most visible and vibrant at night. It also allows the stairwells to be seen due to the contrast of color between the two objects.

The Nemonoki Children’s Art musuem was built to exhibit the works of children in the school of Nemunoki. The structure is aimed at seeing pictures using natural light and the use of sustainable material. It is considered to be one of Ban’s many minimalist designs. A design that strives to convey the message of simplicity, geometric shapes, scarce decor, and repettition. The Japansese Architect, Shigeru Ban, is known for his innovative work with paper. He is seen as ecologically minded, choosing materials that produce as little waste as possible.

There are three different joints used throught the entire lattice roofing. Name them accordingly as: The Hexagonal Joint, the triangular Joint, and the line joint. Thier names deriving from their shape. These pieces are what connect the honeycomb panels to the steel columns. The diagram above express the specfic placemenet of each joint and how they relate to the triangular and hexagonal grid.The line joints connecting the 6 edges of the underlying hexagonal grid. The hexagonal joints connect the larger triangular grid. The triangular joint becomes the center piece of both shapes simultaneously.

The area in which the exsisting site sits was originally made to be an extenstion of the High museum but instead remains as a seperate use of transportation. It consist of four floors roughly about 16 ft in height per floor and mademajority of concrete. The exsisting train station can be seen as something like a hole in the ground and Its because the circulation is mostly vertical throughout floors. Each level introducing a new aspect.

This concept is what can be consisered my final concept, being an iteration of all three of my earlier deisgns. In this case those forms that were seperate are now connected by a platform dierctly connecting to a point where they merge within one another. Then my structural hypothesis is added to this dein allowing for a play of light and oppurtunity for design.

SECTION DETAIL

This is a design proposal for the Raccoon Creek Park Environmental and Edcuational Center. In this project we explore sustainable design strategies and building in a non-uran area. The design should respond to the site and comprise of a program that will hold a large amount of people. My design incorporates the idea of biomimicry into a kinetic facade.

Raccon Creek Park has a deep history and even deeper connection to nature as it uses the natural resources to maintain itself. It is home of the Richland Creek Water Resovior and a the endangered ,Georgia native, Etowah Darter Fish. Raccon Creek Park contributes its community’s economy through fishing and hunting while also maintaing a natural balance within the forest itself. The idea of a ceneter for the community of Richland Creek offers an oppurtunity of learning, community involvement, and source of revenue for the park and the people of the area. The importance of the park itself

Due to the building’s “GILS” ,orientation is not a big issue and allows oppurtunity for controled daylighting and solar heating. The addition of a access greenroof allows for a reduce in runoff and the ability to collect and reuse rainwater. Link

Environmental qualities include an accessible greenroof, North and South facing windows. and a kinecting facade. The greenroof compliments the auditorium and classroom space acting as a sound buffer and outdoor learning space. While the kinetic facade promotes thermal comfort through passive heating through winter months, while also controling daylighting factors.

Due to tree foilage most views from the site are through the tre e. Sight above this fractured due to thick foilage.

Through a combination of tension and compression, middle sheets act as fish gils opening and closing. This allows external factors to filter within the once enclosed space. The idea is inspired by the Etowah Darter itself, a native species of Georgia and currently endangered. I use the idea of Biomimicry to architecturally replicate the breathing system of a fish.

AEON


An Aeon is typically seen as a vague exstension of time but an Aeon can also be considered an era or phase. In this case Aeon takes on the idea of periodicity in which a cycle begins and ends. The transformative process focuses essentially on the formation into a particular shape.. By understanding the site pivot points are created at areas that do not cause too much interuption within the space..By creating these points I am able to make my own rotation diameters that will serve as the basic geometry of my newfound form.This process not only forms the structure in a plan veiw but also sectionally.

The top view is changed in order to increase stabilty while adding also giving s sense of lightness making it less heavy than original design.
