HELLO

My name is Benjamin Mashford. The following portfolio contains a selected works and insight into the broad spectrum of work I have undertaken throughout my studies and work experiences at various offices around the world in places such as Norway, Sydney, Copenhagen, Ă…rhus and Barcelona. My architectural approach is dependent upon creating a form that is program specific but also responsive to site but able to adapt to new and continual evolution of our built environment. My focus is on how we as humans interact, move through and the dialogue we create with the programs of the built environment. Whilst still maintaining a pragmatic approach still allowing the playful and experiemental into the scope. Throughout my studies and life experiences through travels I have obtained and honed a variety of skills sets, which I feel has left me with a better understanding of architecture and its place.

SITE PLAN WITH ADD-ONS

Architecture needs space to unfold the gems of light and shadow, materiality and proportions. We envision a school of architecture as an open honest framework of halls for architecture with a high volumes for maximum space. The aim is to create simple cost efficient halls based on a simple structural system to give as much space for architectural thinking, learning and experiments as possible inside the given budget. The aim is to give: – Maximum focus and opportunities for a free flow of ideas, creativity and experiments – Organisation of the program into a robust layout – Open possibilities and maximum freedom to make your own interior layout. – Elasticity for future change of program and room sizes.

Preserved building

Building plot

– Occasionally shift functions from student space to workshops space – Research by design at workshops as well as at your table. The different halls are created as a reflection of the functional program Hall’s for Lecture, Workshop, Students, Staff etc. and together they form an open structure for investigation, experi- mentation and prototyping ready to unleash the creativity. The untouched Green Wedge The site is an inspiring unplanned spread of ideas and creativity, and we envision an open and inviting school of architecture collaborating and contributing to Godsbanen, Institute for (x) and the Green Wedge.

Post Glacial Landscape

Post Industrial Landscape

The development plan builds on a reading of the multiple identity of Stigsborg as both fjord settlement, (post) industrial area and modern knowledge city. The transformation strategy focus on the revitalization of the existing industrial structures, progressive concepts for land management and urban life growing up of a number of existing social networks. The concept for the new urban area of ´Stigsborg Harbourfront’ can be summarized in three terms: Street Life, Park Life, Fjord Life. The three main strategies for urban life guides the future living qualities of the individual neighborhoods in the district, with attractive urban space as a framework for both the residents’ everyday life and as eventful, public spaces and landscapes for the entire city.

Divers and varied architecture Local plan visual identity forms a town with many types of identities and architectural moods.

Located in the North of Aarhus in close proximity to the Risskov forest the site is a integral element in the newly master planned area of Risskovbrynet. The new neighbourhood is planned to combine diversity in apartment typologies, including terraces houses, and one to three bedroom apartments. The body of the building is gently curved as an interpretation of the local plans intentions to create both – variations and coherency. Facade of the building is composed as gradient made of elements that change tone from light to dark. This gradual colour variation is used to create more subtile constrasts than neighbouring buildings.

professional

The landscape is intended as naturally grown grass and plants in different heights and colours. The approach ensures consistancy and minimal maintenance for the outdoor areas. Courtyard located inbetween the houses is designed as a coherent urban surface which brings buildings together.

SITUATION PLAN

Existing in-ground tank

Existing large water tank

Based in Medellin Colombia the project focuses on adaptive reuse and transformation including other current issues in the regeneration of Medellin. Located in comuna 8 in the hills of Medellin the project centres around reusing an abandoned water reservoir tanks previously serving the comuna with drinking and recycled water. The proposal is to transform these large disused prices of infrastructure into a new community center for the comuna in turn strengthening the regeneration of the comuna and Medellin. MEDELLIN CITY MODEL At local, national and international levels, a lot has been said about Social Urbanism and how it has evolved to consolidate an image of state interventions of what is known today as the Medellin Model. This concept is known for a series of physical interventions of an iconic and monumental nature, such as the Metro and its integrated system of buses, bicycles, tram and cables, “the Integral Urban Projects – PUI, the Library Parks, the green belt, the Articulated Life Units – UVA and the personal

Medellin River Park.” These interventions are oriented towards the concretion of a city model, which responds increasingly to external variables that are to co-inside with the city’s internationalisation. The proposal uses core concepts of adaptation, social regeneration, reuse of existing structure the concept of the project centres around adaptive re-use and social regeneration of a disused/inactive water reservoir site. Four large disused concrete water tanks, inaccessible by the general public as the site is surrounded by a large high fence and disconnected from the 4 bounding streets and is only used by maintenance crew from the utilities company. The four existing tanks would be repurposed to house programs for the community center. The overall program is a community centre and culture house with recreational facilities, and park to complement the nearby Library park and generate new space for community activity in the area. These principles suggest ways in which some of the other sites can be regenerated around the city.

Programatically the project centres around communal facilities such as workshops, classrooms, communal gardens, a main theatre, that doubles as a cinema an recreational facilities such as a skate park housed in the old square water tank and above sites a 6-side football pitch with a set of basketball hoops at each end. The large water tank houses a theater for local performances and workshops in performing arts. Flexible in program inside the circular form allows for a theater as well as the doubling as a cinema space and can be transformed when required. personal

Plaza and “Community room”

A project acting as a catalyst for the new redevelopment and regeneration of the Green Square area in Sydney. The project was an international competition to deign the first of several public projects in the new Green Square neighbourhood to generate economic growth and add housing to quench the ever growing housing demands in Sydney.

professional

The project brief was to add program of public library as well and integrate an urban plaza space to serve as a ‘community room’ for users of the library and the area. The concept we developed for the proposal was to create a large surface area for the urban plaza with the main library functions to be submerged below the plaza.

This allows for the large urban plaza to sit on ground level allowing for free moment across the plaza making access to the buildings either side of the plaza as well as creating a public meeting space in a dense urban setting. Submerged under the plaza are the book spaces, information desks, computers, reading spaces, reading garden, children’s library and meeting rooms.

professional

Simply the urban plaza is to be punctured by the elements of the library such stye entry triangle and the tower and the courtyard. Housed in the entry triangle was a cafe and general seating both indoors and out doors for the cafe and general activities. The tower contains two double hight reading rooms and exhibitions spaces. Above the reading rooms are meeting rooms and music rooms and at level 9 there is a large roof garden terrace and lookout space.

MASTER PLAN

The industrial harbour site holds a legacy as a regional powerhouse and sits next to the old energy plant building that now houses the Ă…rhus film studios and administration. The project proposal was to bean extension of approximately 4400 m2 to sit next to the current Danish state run televisions station Filmbyen. The location of the proposed extension is amongst the old industrial buildings of the harbour and create a hub of culture in close proximity to the new Media library, which has been zoned for the new harbour urban regeneration project. The overarching concept was to create two elements to illustrate the varying scales you find down at the old industrial harbour in Ă…rhus. The larger shell for the industrial oversized scale and the smaller

volumes inside as the residential scales found the south of the site. Inside the shell/frame layer there is the circulation space with allows the user to flow through and circulate and access the individual volumes all the way to the roof terraces. The stacked volumes acting as individual houses the box volumes are connected via a series of bridges and ramp systems. By encasing the stacked volumes the interior spaces and structure becomes protected from the harsh external environment and creates a protected enclosed space to inhabit. Throughout this project we consistently worked with Kasper Nielsen from 3XN and from Lasse Lind from the sustainability arm of GXN which encouraged the exploration of materials and their properties and possible uses.

The invited international competition to the west of Copenhagen for the urban activation and densification for the Skovlunde region. For the railroad town, it’s both about what the region that it is part of the offer, and how each city is able to exploit its potential and create new and attractive qualities. In a city region of a certain size - which Skovlunde is part of - will among the individuals and households always perform many different combinations of preferences, which allows for the city to be successful with a particular combination of qualities.In order to form the basis of the best possible quality for a diverse, safe, exciting and attractive urban living is proposed primary lever divided on 3 main strategies: a strategy for new connections, a strategy for Skovlunde center and a strategy

SITE PLAN

Located in the Ă˜restad Kanalkvarter in the West of Copenhagen centre ADEPT were commissioned by the property owner to develop a housing scheme for approximately 10,000 m2 along the newly created canal. Working closely with the developer and other parties, we developed the concept to work with equally sized cubes through a number of studies utilising physical modelling to examine various forms and ways to obtain the required number of square meters. The concept developed from 4 stand alone towers to 8 modular cubes with apartments structured around one centralised core.The cubes are then stacked upon each other then each cube is shifted sideways and slightly forward to puncturing the orthogonal facade. The shifting allows for sunlight to reach the inner apartments as well

professional

as create a thoroughfare between the towers. Furthermore it enables each cube to be addressed as its own building and the overall diversity is distinguished by the variations in the facade materials as well as the the window composition on the facade. Along the ground plane the activation and connection occurs throughout the integration of retail spaces. I joined the project at the conceptual phase was underway and contributed to the discussion and concept development of forms and various areas of the proposal. I was able to investigate the various exterior materials and facade design plus research and design of the terraces for each apartment.


CONCEPT MODEL EVOLUTION

DOWNSCALING In the Master Plan work with quadratic construction fields. This idiom is repeated in the facade, so that a breakdown of the scale, while creating a reference to whole plan's overall design.

SHIFTS Residential towers must be located 2 m from each other pursuant to the zoning plan ยง 5 Paragraph 4d so that they appear as individual towers

VARIATION Variety is a key part of the local plan. The stacked cubes shifted so that the buildings will be perceived more spatially complex and varied than the original starting point. Heights, projections, displacements and geometry will appear with large spatial variability.

PLAN

The project aims to examine materiality within the context and historical setting. Situated in the centre of Odense Denmark’s third largest city hugging the rail lines. Currently the site sits somewhat lacking urban life and a derelict ground floor space that creates an insecure spaces. The vision is to take the existing historical part of the site and regain the traditional centre through intertwining the traditional and the super modern. The project revolves around the connection between the historical and modern culture of development, and weave Thomas B. Thrigesgade with the context. The project is a series super modern buildings, that partly on the basis of modern tools and technologies, as well on the basis of a conscious rejuvenation of the historical Odense centre will be part of a new vibrant

professional

neighbourhood in the central city.The project celebrates at once the city’s unique history and future potential as a lively and playful minimetropolis for all. The houses or towers contain a variety of apartment sizes and contain a ground floor consisting of retail and urban plaza to activate the ground plane. The scale allows a dialogue to occur between the ground plane plus a somewhat intimate connection between the individual towers themselves. The various mixture of traditional vs modernist materials and building techniques interlaces the old and establishing a more contextual approach. This project allowed me to work with physical modelling of the context and the building in 1:200 detail as well as having creative and material detailing discussions and input at different levels of the project.

In 2011 there was a international competition to propose an urban strategy along with a new train station for the area of St Andreu approximately 20 kms to the North of Barcelona. In conjunction with West 8 Urban designers in Amsterdam the proposal was successful. The urban strategy was to link the area towards Barcelona central via and the use of a landscaped pathway containing a large amount of cycle ways and pathways. The section addressed by the studio contains a train station underground, an urban public space on street level and station amenities. The initial proposal included a series of unique pitched structures that took a linear form to signify the train tracks. Each Pitch and support is of different dimensions creating a unique

The concept remains the same for all three exhibitions although changing plan an detailing slightly to adjust to the various forms of museum spaces. The concept has been to make clear division of elements of films by PIXAR: Histories, Characters, Worlds (see opposite page); within the creative process of each of the movies that are shown. Access to Sala Grande is through a space introduction. From this first filter is accessed the Square Characters. The protagonists of this central sphere sculptures are arranged on raised pedestals, associated with each of the films,

SITUATION PLAN

Holding a large geographical significance the Port of Barcelona and the city the Port Centre sits along at the low end of the axis from Plaça Cataluna down La Rambla to the waterfront. Technically on City port land the structure stands alone surrounded by large public spaces on three sides, on the back side a new proposed bar and restaurant are situated. Symmetrical and linear in form the building was the subject of an international competition to design and construct a new port museum with an addition of a terrace and bar. The competition was to re-establish the area of the “City Port” and its role in the urban fabric and overall significance to Barcelona. The weaving circulation for the exhibition established the way in which you experience the museum.

professional

The exhibition is segmented into four different zones, each area to represent the evolution of the port as well as to show the various elements and history of the port. The elements are Port evolution (A1) where 5 tables are filled with physical models of the port and coastline of Barcelona, illustrating the various evolutions that the port has gone through over some 500 years to the current days. The ornamented archways are filled in with 3 light boxes. The second zone consists of several tables in which displays the port works and plans from books. The walls are adorned with light boxes with back light projection onto acrylic prints and photographs.


I was involved in all areas from the initial concept development and to the final representation. Furthermore involving working with several other collaborators such as lighting designers, structural and industrial engineers, graphic designers, multimedia designers and architects.

Working with the topographly challenged North American city of Seattle it became clear that there was a missing link between the downtown district and the harbour front. This missing link between the two different Seattle is seen as one of the most important connections to create a new identity through the urban space design. Along Spring and Secena streets there is the possibility to create an activity hub to generate new and diverse interests to greater strengthen the connection in urban fabric to the water front recreational activities through cultural programs. The site is framed by Spring and Secena streets with the public seattle library along spring street and toping out at the Town Hall of Seattle.

Anonymous to most city dwellers situated on the Western outskirts of Copenhagen centre, the premise was to construct a competition brief that questions the site and its values. Our ‘Vision’ for Vestskoven was to establish “a new perspective” for the site and the surrounds. Therefore the intervention was to be made through a void into the landscape. This void is an architectonical tool to investigate densification and how program if structured correctly can act as condenser for activity. The creation of an activity hub with the program(s) of your choice in patchwork landscape of Vestskoven will create a landscape with an identity and purpose. The hub will increase diversity and community involvement from the local area.

The first urban design project I completed entailed lining the NTNU campus to the greater city of Trondheim. The project required responses to the ever-expanding population of the NTNU campus and its affiliates. Therefore a greater physical and mental connection between the campus and city was created throughout the identification and creation of clustering of city and campus themes. Identified is the potential to intertwine the main and largest NTNU Gløshaugen campus with the town centre of Trondheim, and while doing so also create a link to the main marterial road links of several of other affiliates to the campus. The strategy was to create movement hot spots or “nodes”

lining the city connection road Elkdegstta through the development of tram stations allowing access furthermore increasing diversity in the area. These “nodes” were to create links through programming different sections of the street to establish a new urban tissue. Of each node, there is a specific program that links back to the NTNU and the campus.
