METRO EXIT AND BICYCLE RENTAL Course: Arch 10B Semester: Fall 2011 Instructor: Coleman Griffith 7


Project Description: We are assigned to design a community center for local residents in a location that is a park currently currently. The redesign site should contain a Metro exit, community center and Bike rentals. For us, we need to start with the project with bikes’ scale so that we would know the scale of everything.Then, we need to use the binocular method to consider our concept. From our concept, we would then be using site datum as a reference so that they could help us to create our design. In my design, I uses the minimal surfaces tool to help me getting an overall shape.

Concept: My concept is germination, and the binocular words are prolongments and inception. By definitions, germination has several meanings such as coming into existence, causing to develop, and creating new life. The meanings of prolongment are extending the duration of and making longer is spatial extent. Inception refers to the beginning or the commencement. In this project, the Metro Exit is my seed and it germinates along with the shadows of tree.

Challenge: First off, the challenge is that we need to use to site datums in order to determine the location of our model and it has to put it in a way that is following our inital concept. The Metro Station’s location is going to follow our design which would have a ``relationship with the site.

Using minimal surface building skill to trace the form of the quantitative model.

The Process

March 21st 10am

Use the shadow as a part of datum, and trace it in AutoCAD. 10

Then, loft the edge of the shadow with the height of the tree individually.

Use the Panelling tool to create trasitions between each individual shadow-and-tree model.


Contour all of the models and loft between them.

After completing multiple lofting and rebuilding steps, the form that was produced is a quantitative model by using the shadows of the trees.

Modify it by using surrounding buildings’ datum and constrains. 11

SPATIAL SEQUENCE Course: Arch 10B Semester: Fall 2011 Instructor: Coleman Griffith 17


Project Description: This Project lets the student understand the spatial relationships, ordering, and organizations. The idea is that circulation connects the public spaces. It does not connect with private spaces such as bathrooms and bedrooms. The students have to choose a case study and physically model it at the later stage. Each architecture consists of private space, public space, and circulations which are illustrated in physical model by using walnut wood, acrylics, and bass wood respectively . It is similar to a puzzle as circulation interlocks with the public spaces.

Circulation

The Challenge:

Interlocking Public Space

The Challenge part that I encountered were both understanding the spatial relationship and the model process. We have to understand how each space relates to another one first in order to build the physical model to illustrate it. The materials of the model were made of walnut wood, bass wood, medium density fiber board and acrylics. I gained a lot of modeling skills and experience through this excercise. Also, the circulation and public spaces have to interlock with each other, and it takes a long time for me to figure out the spatial sequence of this project. Private Space

Case Study: For my case study, I chose the Glen Osmond House which is located in Glen Osmond, Australia. The Architect is Swanbury Penglase and it was completed in 2009. It features with the disoriented floor plan organization and it has various kinds of spatial organization as well. Also, it’s a double story apartment.

MINIMAL SURFACES Course: Arch 12B Semester: Fall 2011 Instructor: Andy Ku 23


Project Description: The objective is to set up a boundary to create a minimal surfaces within it by using simple geometries and shapes.

Challenge: The Boundary of a single minimal surface is very difficult to connect back to each other. When I am using the geometries in order to create the boundary of the minimal surface, I have to experiment it into a several way so that I can understand how minimal surfaces can be built. Also, the steps and rules are very critical in the process, I have to make sure the previous step has no error in order to move on to the next step.

Stage Description: After creating a single piece of minimal surface, I start to explore the different, possible architectural structure that it can form. I use tools such as mirror, rotate and bend so as to create a massive possible groups of minimal surfaces that has volumes inside of itself. The massive struncture has lots of occupying space inside it.

2. Use line BD as the axis to create cone I.

3. Create surface EFCD in order to contact with cone I. Then use cone I to trim surface EFCD.

4. By duplicating the trimmed surface EFCD, it creates arc GH.

5. Then create line IC and use it as the axis of cone II. Create surface ACD and use it to intersect with cone II, and it creates arc HJ.

BEACH SHELTER Course: Arch 10A Semester: Spring 2011 Instructor: Sandy Lee 29


Project Description: In this project, we create our design through the existing site information. From researching the beach and its daily usage statistics, we can set up a rule and create a diagram for the site. Then, we can use the diagram and start to design our model.

Challenge: The hardest part of this project is to transfer from two-dimensional drawings into three-dimension models. Besides, there are also constrains that we have to follow. Once we got through this bottleneck step, our design will be a lot easier as we know a method to transform the data that we already had.

Site Location: Isle Of Wight, UK This location is in the birds’ immigration path. When it’s in the winter season, there will be lots of birds moving out from it to other countries. When it’s in spring, the birds from other countries will move to this small island to stay for several months. This small island contains 140,200 residents, whose density is 369 people within square kilometers. There are many visitors visiting this island per year. In 1999, the total visitors visited the islands had gone up to 2.7 million visitors. It’s a lot compared to 140,200 residents.

Material Choice: For my physical model, i used acryics, bass wood sticks, and white museum board.

Diagramming Rule Set: Darkest line weight and different darkness of circles represents the main circulation and the different numbers of people in circulation and density diagram. In figure ground diagram, block color represents sea and white color represents the ground.

SKIN AND BONES Course: Arch 12B Semester: Fall 2011 Instructor: Andy Ku 35


Project Description: This Project is a study in a particular strcutural type and surface construction. The Skin and Bones achieves the maximum surface mass and minimum weight simutaneously. This project uses UN Studio’s Villa NM as a foundation in the beginning when we are designing the forms and shapes.

Challenge: The challenge is to think about the form of Villa NM and trasfer the characteristics from it to this project. The transition is critical because the connections between ribs and stringers have to be strong enough in order not to let it fall apart. We also need to consider well when we are deciding the location of cut outs because it can weaken the structure if it is in an undesirable place.

Site Information: Physical Model of Ribs, Stringers, and Spars

UN Studio’s Villa NM is located in Upstate New York, Catskills, USA.

4. Based on these lines, we can modify them by using rotating and bending tools.

5. Then, apply Material thickness to it, create supporting skeletons inside the ribs, and decide how the components are connecting to each other.

6. Next, we enter to the physical model phase.

PCC LANCER PASS Course: Arch 20A Semester: Spring 2012 Instructor: Coleman Griffith

41


Project Description: This project is a study in a particular strcutural type and surface construction. We have to redesign PCC cafeteria and come up with a continuous surface system that contains programs both on top of and underneath the system. We have to consider with the constructing art building because the surrounding buildings will have a role on our design.

Challenge: The challenge is to transform the programs of the cafeteria into the new form. The surface system has to be functional and practical. For example, it should have occupying spaces both externally and internally. I found that it is critical to change the landscape when I have to come up with a new surface system.

Concept: My concept is resonance and its binuclear words are retention, and repulsion. By definition, resonance refers to the state of a systems in which an a large vibration is produced in response to an external stimulus. Based on my concept, I think my new design has to interact with the public. The public and the system should be intergrated together.
