AGRI-POD

Agri-pod is the science, art or oc building materials have included sustainability, energy consumptio agricultural materials.

For this project, the task is to dev waste stream, buy products of fo developed agricultural material


ccupation concerned with cultivating land or raising crops. Historically, Agricultural d wood, straw, leaves, bamboo and cotton. More recently, issues surrounding on and waste more building materials are being developed that take advantage of

velop a new material that can potentially use agricultural ingredients found in the ood consumption or even processing. Then, design 3D tiles made out of newly to fabricate tiles.

Rotterdam, Netherlands


CONCEPT PHILOSOPHY “FG Food Labs” is a Dutch supermarket located in the heart of Rotterdam, which it constantly looks forward to make an impression and creates dishes that offer a special dining experience for its visitors. Furthermore, as this is taken into consideration, and inspired by the tulips fields, it was decided to design this space based on the city’s fields’ long linear shapes. According to the Official Guide website of The Netherlands, the country is known as “the flower shop of the word” for its tulips massive production. Every year, billions of tullips are cultivated. The majority are both grown and exported from The Netherlands. More than 60% of the total surface of the country is used for agriculture and a significant portion of that, is for the bulb growing industry, especially to those nurseries that are focused on tulips. Based on detailed research and several experiments, it was decided that this space’s tiles would be made out of tulips remains, as a way to make use of one of their most common waste stream.

CONCEPT PHILOSOPHY This gastronomy lab wants to incorporate 3D printed food using ingredients such as coffee, sugar and chocolate to potentially be pulverized and used to make 3D printed food. By developing a generative design research, we use my agripod project as a staircase to connect both the 1st and 2nd floor, and Marie’s agri-pod project as the cafe. By using these, our space planning consists of the first floor being used for the mixology bar, storage and cafe with its product displays. While the second floor is used for the staff to 3D print their products.

Built by Southern Pacific Railway and designed by on’s construction was for about $300,000 USD to be one of the main train stations in erely damaged by the Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989. Furthermore, it eventually eplaced by the Emeryville and Jack London Square stations.

d I were asked to re-design its interior for its new purpose: a rental space. The space h-taking atmosphere, brick industrial look and urban graffiti. Inspired by this, we ating furniture that can offer a different but special experience.

CONCEPT PHILOSOPHY Inspired by utilizing everyday items from the Dollar Store, Rachel and I decided to use razors, mouse traps, plastic spray bottles, clothespins and bobby pins to create furniture for this abandoned BART station. Using MODO 902 software, we came up with a few sketches by combining each chosen item in order to design with different types of furniture. For further study, we bought these items to break them into pieces. Furthermore, based on a detailed experiment and sketches, we came up with a spray bottle column, clothespin carpet, spray bottle couch, razor lamp and a clothespin folding screen.

SPRAY BOTTLE COUCH Spray Bottles existed long before the middle of the 20th century. However, in the late 1960’s, Trigger-Style spray bottles were born and these instantly became popular. These bottles are mainly made out of plastic with a total of 9 pieces. Some of these are: Directional spray nozzle, trigger sprayer, spray head, container, rotatable conduit, spray control cap, bottle, and the straw. This item is ideal for storing liquids. However, with its curvy shape, bottles are used to design this couch. Bottles are attached to each other with their bottom area facing up, which help to create several seats with a 2.5 feet height.

RAZOR LAMP Razors have existed since before the “Bronze Age”, the oldest one has been dated to 18,000 B.C. Some of the most popular kinds of razors are disposable blade straight, electronic, removable blade and cartridge coming from companies such as Gillete, Schick, Venus, Harry’s, among others. A ‘razor lamp’ was born from a disposable razor in order to provide better lighting for the bart station. The ‘blades’ are replaced by 3 light bulbs. This 6 feet tall lamp has a total of 19 light bulbs.

CLOTHESPIN FOLDING SCREEN Laundry clips were originally made out of wood invented in the 1700’s in England. In 1887, Solon E. More re-designed it by adding single wires to hold both the wood or plastic prongs together, as the spring forces them to shut and hold the clothes tight as well. Just like these clips were designed to be one piece, this clothespin folding screen is one piece as well. Its concept is simple to follow: it consists of several clips to be joined together to create a human scale folding screen. These are connected by the prongs facing opposite directions, the process repeats itself until a total of 48 clips are held tight.

CONCEPT PHILOSOPHY Amazon is technically a new tech company, this means they want to keep that modern style as it is constantly changing its marketing strategies to attract more consumers and getting generations X and Y to work together. Their slogan is: “to work hard, have fun, and make history,” as many of its employees are milennials. Amazon offers the total package: compensation, career growth, flexibility and a sense of purpose. Based on these details, both generations are interested in working long-term. Furthermore, the concept is diversity. As amazon keeps expanding, their idea about being the world’s customer centric company, it is consistently changing to satisfy and retain both generations.
