Edmonton International Airport: Combined Office/ Control Tower Architect: Dialog

Clients: Thermal Systems & Ellisdon Construction (joint venture) GC: Ellisdon Construction Location: Edmonton Alberta, Canada Duration: July 2011 – January 2013

GT joined the Edmonton International Airport project as a rescue mission. At the time when GT stepped in, our main client (Thermal Systems) had twice attempted to produce a mock-up of a system for building the decorative ribbon ellements. We collaborated with Thermal and with the project engineer, Walters Chamber & Associates, and the fabricators, to redesign the building system for the ribbons. This included the design or the trusses and their bespoke connection details, doubly curved hat-channel supports spanning between the trusses, and corrugated decking laid over the hat-channel to in turn support the zinc shingles. Before creating truss templates and fabrication data GT first tuned the ribbon to meet the needs of the glazers, engineering, and of course, the design intent.

Barclay’s arena: brackets, shop and fab drawings My roll at Front was to draft Shop and Fabrication drawing for the bra kets that would ultimately hold the curtain wall panels. In addition I contributed modeling and drafting for the Visual-Mock-Up and Performance-Mock-Up on the following pages. Throughout the process I collaborated heavily with the project engineer, Phil Kaleel, as well as the other architects on the team.

Front Inc DFS – Re-branding through architecture Architect: Front Inc Location: Hong Kong, China Duration: Summer, 2010

DFS Galleria: catia concept model Working under Marc Simmons I was part of a four person team that set out to redesign three new facades for the flagship locations of DFS. The Scottswalk store in Hong Kong was the facade that I ultimately modeled in Catia. The structure of the digital model can be broken down by looking at the very basic surface below. The control curves (center of the image) drive the curvature of the surface. Sections of the surface then provided rails along which to sweep the profiles of the stone facade elements

module interlocking Through the adaptation of a tetris-like system of shapes the sandwich modules are able to interlock planometrically without creating long continuous seams in the floating structure. In order to provide a similar interlocking sectionally, a kind of tonguein-groove overlapping is adopted (below).

Ghana’s cocoa relationship Each year Ghana exports 700,000 tons of cocoa beans valued up to $32 billion (high-end retail). Consider that Ghana’s GDP IS $16.65 billion. Meanwhile there exists a severe production gap between Ghana, which produces an average of 400 kg/acre, and newer cocoa industries like that of Vietnam which averages 1000kg/acre.

As this map demonstrates, there is an intense scarcity of public facilities in the immediate vicinity of Hunters Point South. Furthermore, what facilities exist, are extremely limited. My partner Kooho and I therefore included in our design a great deal of public facilities/infrastructure such as two schools, a supermarket, a public library, a farmers market, a health-care clinic and several acres of public park space. site distance perimeter community school district 30, zone 3 elementary school middle or intermediate school high school library

ventilation Our strategy for supplying cross-ventilation to each and every tower apartment unit was to perforate the tower with vertical chimneys [2]. The chimneys are broken every five floors by a doubleheight open-air floor plate that we call the ‘wind floor’ [3]. The structural walls of the tower [4 & 5] are designed to funnel air through these windfloors, creating a fast laminar flow of air over the tops of the chimneys and causing air to be drawn in through exterior windows of the apartments, through the apartments and then up and out of the chimneys.

structure As mentioned above, the structural walls of the tower are designed to promote air-flow. The wind-chimneys meanwhile, double as continuous structural columns.

sections a, b, c, d The sections illustrate the transition from original ground plane (at river’s edge) to elevated plateau, to apartment units. The new ground plane makes a slow, feathered rise from the water front to four stories high where it meets the city at the edge of the site. The Master Plan illustrates the strategy of ushering the public up onto the plateau from the streets of Queens via wide, grand staircases at the juncture of each street with the site’s edge.

Showcasing the Rough-Draft A connection to the street through a new public park provides entry to a museum whose elevated structure allows for day-lit galleries and workspaces and 1.2 acres of new city park. Flows of movement between this entry point and rooftop park spaces provide access to galleries, a library/ research space, and a theater. While exhibits reveal the process material behind works of art, architecture and design, the building makes vertical the processes and exchanges of a public park.

qualitative studies A series of material studies and two dimensional collages allowed for the development of goals and intentions for the interior qualities of light and human experience within the museum. These studies also provided a sort of indirect, non-quantitative notion of what the building’s skin needed to do; how that skin would need to perform.

_111



massing/program studies To begin to explore the programing of the museum I began with the over-all buildable space for the building [a] and filled it with neutral space [b]. Then I began to stretch, pull, compress, and delete this neutrality and replace it with spaces of specificity; voids, galleries, parks, classrooms [c, d, e, f, g, h].

material studies & massing Early material studies aided both in an understanding of the physical character of the spaces (there luminosity, porosity, etc) as well as and early understanding of their volume. By incorporating large terraced outdoor spaces the museum provides over half an acre of additional park space to the pubic of New York.

MASSING Directly reflecting the design intention of providing out-door public space, the building literally serves to extend the public sphere of the streets below. Large escalators usher visitors up onto higher and higher platforms of park space, with options for entering the museum at street level or at the top-most park. To the rear of the street level park visitors are met by a small outdoor restaurant.

As the sections demonstrate, the butted triangles of the membrane are scaled in both aperture and depth to admit more or less light according to program needs. The same triangular system applies itself to the entirety of the building, forming the waffle-slabs of the floors, the truss work of the building’s massive cantilevers and the membrane. The plans reveal the scale and quantity of stacked green, outdoor space.

exploded axonometric The research pod/energy harvester is constructed simply of aluminum tubing, elastic cord, and a sheer, nylon-based fabric and an internal rubber bladder for water collection.

_133



PERSPECTIVES As water accumulates in an elevated central bladder, the tent slowly descends and flattens under the weight. At the moment of total collapse, just before the tent would flatten causing its interior contents to be pushed up and outward, allowing the tent to spring back to it’s full height. The slow descents and abrupt rises of the structure provide a gage for rain-fall and water accumulation.

_135



compression harvesting The Research Pod’s innate capacity to collapse and immediately/effortlessly spring back into shape opens it to the possibility of passive energy harvest. For example, placed beneath a natural occurring water-fall, the pod would collapse and spring back into shape indefinitely as long as the water supply remained.

components + strategy + parameters

components: The basic goal of the tower was to use off the shelf components (2x4 lumber and steel rods) to create a custom tower by using custom lengths of very basic materials.

strategy: Base wire-frame/surfaces provide the backbone for Knowledge-Pattern inputs. Knowledge patterns distribute the actual tower geometry (rods and 2x4’s), updating every time the main parameters are changed.

PBY Journeys: Mapping Space and Time Through Line, Narrative and Text

Location: The World Brendan Sullivan

With this project I explored the communicative and narrative capacity of drawing through an architectural understanding of the PBY Catalina, combined with a visceral and experiential understanding of my father’s work and travels as a pilot of a PBY Catalina with the Cousteau Society in the 1970’s. Eventually I used his narrative (literally) as line; allowing the words and letters to aggregate into lines whose weights vary depending on the frequency of the narrative’s telling. The result is a dynamic drawing as expressive of myself and up-bringing as of my father and his story-telling.

_151



sections The premise of this phase in the project was to take a plastic model and distort/affect it in some way. I melted my model with a heat-gun. These sections depict the resultant bending and distortion of the aircraft.
