POTENTIAL SITES

Bridging the gap between the experiential dimension of an origami-inspired bridge and the ability to create interesting connectivity across two riverfront in Chicago. It is not just another drawbridge in Chicago. Tiffany lane is a pedestrian bridge for commuters and for those who would like to spend more time over the river - enjoying the best view of Chicago, having a nice dinner with your loved ones, people watching, buying your groceries from a local farmer’s market, chatting with strangers and so much more awaits for you on tiffany lane. Unlike other drawbridges in Chicago, this living bridge folds up to make way for boat traffic clearance. It is definitely a show-stopper on its own - elegant and full of surprises. Let’s meet on Tiffany Lane.

TIFFANY LANE

FOLDED

UNFOLDED

Tiffany Lane challenged the architectural designs inspired by Origami. Significant progress have been made in nano-origami scaled projects, whereas scaling from a single sheet of paper has quite a journey ahead. This design embraces the unique properties of the Zippered origami tube. The fascinating ability of coupling these zipper tubes that can be collapsable while still providing structural stiffness pushed the designers towards designing a collapsable bridge in Chicago. As depicted, Tiffany Lane is able to reconfigure according to Chicago’s weekly drawbridge lifting event, allowing for boat traffic clearance.

INTERNALLY COUPLED TUBES Two zipper-tube that are designed to conform in preserving the flat-foldability and rigid properties. The internal tube has similar design parameters and geometry allowing for a synchronized mechanical behaviour. When the internal tube folds flat, there are great potentials in creating architectural spaces within which can be occupied - such as a walkway

TIFFANY LANE EGG CRATE Following the principle of crosslamination, each layer of Zipper Tubes is oriented perpendicular to the adjacent layers. Behavior of this configuration allows for a rigid Z-axis while allowing for collapsibility in the X-Y axis.

BRIDGE The deck of the bridge constitute of mirrored tubes of similar angle (100-80degrees) and size (1in. at y-z) that are connected together - this is where the loads are being applied. The stringers supporting the deck are of bigger angle (120-60degrees) and size (1in. at z and 1.2in at y) tubes compared to the tubes’ dimensions at the deck.


EXPERIMENT ZIPPER TUBE PROPERTIES AND BEHAVIOURS

SANDWICH A hybrid of cross laminated technique with individual layers of coupled zipper tubes provides a one-way collapsible axis but rigid on all four long faces.

SQUARE-CIRCLE A sequence of alternating direction Zipper Tubes interlocked For SquareCircle to emerge. When all the tubes are fully extended, the overall geometry can support substantial load perpendicular to its deployable axis - when collapsed morphs into an half hexagon.

APPLIED RESEARCH Through lessons gathered across the research phase of this project, we have combined a few coupling logics to provide a variety of behaviours in the design of this bridge. We were excited to create an habitable space using those tubes. The composition and function of this bridge demonstrates an array of usage that can be applied using these tubes coupling logic. Those tubes are used as enclosed spaces, open air structure, substructure, moveable parts and many more to discover. In addition the tubes, we pushed this challenge in creating attached elements such as customizable screens, collapse-able floors surfaces.

DETAILS BRIDGE FOOTINGS Looking closer to the ground connection from what is happening above on the living bridge. Elevating the bridge is a design tactic to preserve the existing river-walk that runs along both sides of the river bank. We also respected the existing site condition with varying heights along the river edges by scaling the origami tubes to the design height for clearance.


TIFFANY LANE Several precedents contributed to this project, including Florence’s Ponte Vecchio which is described as a medieval stone closed-spandrel arch bridge, well worth visiting day or night for a great ambiance. You can find anything from jewelry to gelato shops. This beautiful bridge has inspired us to inhabit bridges as a form of daily leisure for tourists or locals. Other international bridge design - the Gateshead Millennium Bridge in River Tyne, UK also known as the Tilt Bridge serving pedestrians and cyclists, with the intention to allow for boat traffic clearance at a weekly basis. This spectacular bridge caught our attention, especially with its capacity to appear elegant and yet operate with great efficiency to facilitate a variety of traffic needs. Many great ideas from the Habitable Bridge Competition entry influenced our purpose of design a living bridge, including Zaha Hadid’s proposal. In 1867 Edward Middleton Barry proposed this design to National Gallery to replace the Vauxhall Bridge in London. Great inspiration for larger scale amenities that can exist while still floating over the river. The layers of entertainment spaces really showcase a great use of space between two banks.

TIFFANY LANE PROGRAM Tiffany Lane is highly influenced by the exceptional architecture created by arcades, a linear covered path with rows of shopping on either sides. This bridge manifest the demand for habitable spaces across the waterway. Especially in Chicago’s cold and windy winter, we wanted to offer a place where it’s not just a commuting path but also a place to retreat from extreme weather with all types of entertainment and retail experience to enhance your day. Tiffany integrates circulation paths accessible by everyone.

TIFFANY LANE PANELIZE The main construction method of this bridge will be fiberglass perforated panels for all surfaces that will then be mounted on a metal frame. Fold-able portion of the bridge will have an additional hinge joint within the metal frame.

FACADE PATTERN Openings can be varied for different usages throughout the bridge, whether more privacy is needed for certain units or more light infiltration, these panel studies can create an interesting facade for the bridge. The base pattern derives from the angular characteristics observed in the miura origami pattern.

PARC DE LA VILLETTE | PARIS, FRANCE

SPRING 2018 GRADUATE FAB CITY SUMMIT INSTALLATION SEMINAR COURSE L y n n B . W i t h Bennett C. Ilyasova I. Katie K. Sean M. Aaron W. Instructor TRISTAN AL-HADDAD

The ultimate goal is to fabricate and install full scale project in Atlanta’s public realm. Several students from different disciplines in the College of Design worked over a year with the help of our instructor and many supporting sponsors including PCI - Precast Concrete Institute, to make this dream come true. Xylo had the honour to be exhibited at the Fab City Summit 2018 in Paris, France. The team fabricated Xylo in house at the DFL - Digital Fabrication Lab and with the generous help of DEX Industries, all parts were packed and shipping across to France. In July, 2018 the team erected Xylo for the first time.


XYLO

ITERATION This project went through several rounds of iteration and structural adjustment to accommodate local installation conditions. Precast concrete workshop using parametric design in Grasshopper, followed by design detail development using small scale fabrication test.


XYLO DESIGN INTENT Xylo derives its form through advance scripting using Grasshopper and inspired by the catenary arch principle. A series of free standing ‘fingers’ reaching the sky at different increments. The design team believes that this change in length and volume will make Xylo behave just like a xylophone. Imagine walking under this arch way, dragging your house keys along those ‘fingers/keys’ and hearing the different tones that Xylo produces. We hope to bring a smile to everyone who comes across this installation.

CAST CONCRETE SAMPLE Made from DUCTAL - Ultra-High Performance Fiber- Reinforced Concrete Ductal concrete mixture is poured into the rubber negative mold to form our digits. Half length, full scale Half scale, full length


XYLO

FINAL TOUCH The rubber mold yield a very smooth finish on its own, many layers of wax and primers were applied before pouring in the concrete mix. Several small ‘holidays’ are formed on the inner surface of the ‘finger’ which actually creates a very interesting texture. We sanded the extra concrete that may have been leaked through the side seams of the rubber mold. Since each ‘fingers’ were casted from the same rubber mold, we had to cut down the top tips of the ‘fingers’ to create the different lengths like a xylophone instrument. Holes were drilled on the bottom sides of each ‘fingers’ for post tensioning cable to run through after erecting each piece in place.


XYLO

SHIPPING FROM ATLANTA TO FRANCE About a month away from the Fab City Summit Exhibition, we labeled and packed each ‘fingers’ on wood pallet. We made sure to document the process so we hand the instruction to Fab City for a successful return shipping from France back to Atlanta. Each fingers were covered with bubble wraps, cushioned with some fabric between the fingers and the wood pallet.


XYLO


INSTALLATION July 9th in Paris, we gathered together to receive the container that was shipped from the United States all the way to Parc de la Villette in France. We immediately interacted with quite a few exhibitors from across the world, eager to show their discoveries and fabrication. This committee is super tight and depends highly on solidarity. Being in a foreign environment we encountered a lot of set backs since we do not have tools that are handy. Shopping also take a while especially for first timers like us. Nevertheless, we manage through this whole installation by networking with other teams and we were grateful to have a makers space for the public to use that is also run by Fab City. Xylo came to Paris with minimal damage, only a few minor surface cracks. We were extremely to finally show this to the public. There was a few miscalculation on the positions of the drilled hole for post-tensional cables, we had to improvise as we were securing Xylo for the inspection round. We learnt a wide range of lessons and experienced in person what is takes to make beautiful design happen. It’s all worth it!

AMICALOLA FALLS | DAWSONVILLE, GEORGIA

SPRING 2018 GRADUATE PORTMAN COMPETITION STUDIO Lynn B. With Areej A. Rachel C. Instructor SONIT BAFNA

SCREE presents a reformulated adaptive reuse construction logic whereby the architect’s agency is being expanded to take control of all building materials preand post- construction operation. In looking forward to the new CLUI (Center of Land Use and Interpretation) at the Amicalola Falls, our design team took on the challenged to formulate an adaptive and reuse construction logic. With this tactic in mind, we aspire to contribute at several levels of benefits; manifesting from social, physical, and ecological feedback. The framework for our design intent has a clear goal of extending the life cycle of building materials by adapting design for deconstruction strategies and incorporating future scenarios of material reuse. We recognize the problem in our industry whereby materials are only conceived for one purpose, and the architect’s agency to control this material use stops after construction. Thereby, we propose a system which considers all materials


SCREE The Center of Interpretation is organized around a distributed program that inhabits the entire valley. This allows visitors to experience the valley by discovering a variety of paths, while capturing the treasured experience of a hike along the Appalachian Trail. The proposed detached building system provides the opportunity to rearrange the systems for any programmatic change in the future. All earth construction formwork used on site can be easily reassembled and reconfigured into roof and floor elements or transported along the trail to construct new shelters. This philosophy presents the possibility of a unique and progressive method of construction with a distinctive and striking vocabulary and, in doing so, exemplifies the freedom of site-specific architecture.
