Columbia University Rowing Complex The Columbia Rowing Complex is a manifestation of a process in which two-dimensional analytic information is superimposed and negotiated in relationship to itself as well as its place and context. Datum is projected onto the site through a stratified layering of different forces acting and reacting to the site .The proposal aimed to produce, Through a process of juxtapositions and compromise, a new method of racing shell organization that allowed every instance of boat storage to become a microcosm of the typical programmatic demands of a university rowing and training facility.

DEVELOPMENT

The process for developing the design was an effort to reinterpret analytical notations that intially described the choreography of how boat teams moved the racing shells from storage to the water. Using wooden pegs as structural nodes, Rubber bands were stretched between them and acted as large spanning structural members.

The structural system of the rowing complex was conceived of as a series of points on a field with large spans connecting them. These spans, originally thought of as rubber bands, were achieved as post tensioned concrete beams, which rest tangentially into large concrete cylinders. With a circumference of 10ft or more, the structural nodes contain locker rooms, circulation, storage, and racks for rowing oars.

Berlin Post-Fab Housing With Adin Rimland & Lucas Bucknavage Critics: Dagmar Richter & William Menking

The Berlin Post-Fabrication housing project leverages 3D scanning and robotic assisted digital fabrication technology to address Berlins history of architectural / ornamental erasure by providing a new service to the city. In turn, it utilizes the leftover material of the fabrication processes to fund and produce a self sufficient model of work live community within Warschauer StraĂ&#x;e, Berlin.

The site, Warschauer StraĂ&#x;e, was formerly a train depot. For many years it was abandoned until a community of builders, artists, and entrepeneurs turned it into a place with comune style housing, concerts, rock climbing gyms, tattoo parlors, and a beer garden

MODEL OF EXPANSION

GROWTH OVER TIME

Bryce Taylor

32

The production of large scale building elements or fragments creates a viable economic output to sustain the housing project in addition to a large amount of material waste. As a result, it was necessary to develop a way of organizing the Post Fab housing that resisted the typical Modernist grid and had a more specific interface between real conditions.The result is a type of 21st century Nolli plan, in which the distinction between positive and negative space isn’t distinctly black and white.

The method of development first begins with an analysis of what is built and unbuilt. The pixelization technique is a way of creating variable radii, with the dependent factor being their proximity to built structures. This pixels, when clustered together, become footprints for small scale housing modules. The center of each pixel contains an infrastructural totem, which is a way of bringing utlities into undeveloped territories with the expectation that as the project grows over time, residents/ builders will be able to tap into the resources

this cluster of pixels, which comprises the footprint of a housing module, reflects how the post fab housing would grow over time. The community constantly spreads out over a set infrastructure, which it can plug into via utility totems 33

DIGITALLY ASSISTED RESTORATION

1.

Post Fab Housing is intially a proposal for a new economic model that can sustain itself through the virtual cataloguing of physical building data. Drones leave the formerly abandoned train depot within warschauerstrasse which has been infilled as a drone port / fab lab. the information is stored in a digital archive of the city for future reference. Tha fabrication and material process line is assisted by five axis robots that mill out negatives of ornamental details. The positives are cast and sent to sites where historical restoration has been required. In turn, the waste material is reprocessed and used as the base building material for the cooperative housing where residents of the Post-Fab housing live and work.

Drones equipped with 3d scanning hardware are deployed to collect physical information of histrical sites around Berlin.

2. Drones return to Warschauer-

strasse, where city information is stored in a digital archive.

3. Archival material is stored on

site. When a developer or builder needs a replica of a historical building, they can be called upon to recreate it.

NEW MODEL OF WORK/ LIVE

Following the conclusion of the 2nd world war, Berlin had been a testing ground for new models of public housing. By its very nature, social housing seeks to provide affordable housing to citizens on a rental basis. State ownership means a lack of propriety, and without an investment or stake in a citizens property, many projects succumbed to deterioration. 3

The Berlin Post-Fab housing aims to explore the issue of bottom up development, where the project is funded and built by the inhabitants themselves rather than a developer. The influence of technology affords a form of autonomy, where earlier Marxist ideas of owning the means of production is becoming more and more tangible. Public space is a major feature of the architectural and social landscape in Berlin. From leisure, political activism, temporary entertainment venues, to weekly farmers markets, empty public space is some of the most valuable real estate for Berliners. What about the idea of living in public space? This brings up questions of ownership in the same way the social housing has, except now the ownership belongs to the community rather than the state.

Manifold Surfaces With Ardon Lee 1 + 1 Morph Design Competition Entry Summer 2015

Fluidity, responsiveness, and the ability to react through stimuli are words that describe the state of cultural pluralism and exchange of media in the 21st century. This state of flux between cultures influenced the idea behind a manifold and smooth surface, which at once separates and defines the programmatic areas of the exhibition space while simultaneously responding to the fluid nature of circulation and exhibition of items. The manifold surface cuts through the entrance and the main exhibition room while directing the flow of people

between the second exhibition room and the VIP suite. Integrated at the entrance near the reception desk, the fiber glass assembly supports a track for hanging display panels. These panels hung by aluminum truss-work along with faceted and frosted glass to diffuse light to onlookers view may roll end to end or disperse as far as the showroom, depending on the requirements of the exhibition at the time. Suspended LED lights with custom aluminum housing direct the flow of circulation from the entrance to the second exhibition room. In the second exhibition

room, custom display cabinets are integrated into the wall, offset with enough clearance space so that the doors behind the cabinets are still accessible. This lves the former problem of having the inability to utilize the wall because of the interference of doors and egress.
