CA+P Downtown Satellite Shifted Parallel Instructor: Libby Haslem Duration: 8 Weeks Time: Spring 2011

This project is an extension of the school of architecture at the University of Utah. My main focus is to encourage architecture students and the community to learn more about architecture professions. The concept “shifted parallel� expresses the co-existing relationship of architectural professions and education.

CA+P Downtown Satellite Shifted Parallel

Parti Diagram

Instructor: Libby Haslem Duration: 8 Weeks Time: Spring 2011

The concept was derived from a conduit study of the spinal cord. For the satellite project, I was interested in how each individual piece of information connects to the main source. There are two different substances in spinal cord, grey matter and white matter. They both occupy the same space, but have different functions. I applied this idea to the exterior, interior, materials, and aesthetics of the building.

CA+P Downtown Satellite Shifted Parallel Instructor: Libby Haslem Duration: 8 Weeks Time: Spring 2011

Salt Lake City experiences a wide range of temperatures, often within the same day. Due to the orientation of the site, this project is exposed to major sunlight and daylight. As part of a cooling/heating strategy, the building is protected by metal mesh screen, blinds, operable solar shading, and a green double facade. Elements that add to the experience of the building play an important part of visual connection. Green walls on the double facade provide a an organic feel that expresses the idea of “shift� comparing to the interior space of the building.

Fluid Adagio Competition Emergence Instructor: BrendaSheer Duration: 4 Weeks Time: Fall 2010

My inspirations for this project are beehives, green mosses and the flowing quality of ballet movements. I propose a geodesic dome with hexagon- shaped holes cut out to represent a beehive. The geodesic dome is made out of metal mesh, which allows light and sound to pass through and to reveal how light and airy ballet movements are. On the other hand, seats are made of out metal wires. Seats are randomly arranged around the dome with the positions of these seats as they landed in the wreck.

Fluid Adagio Competition Emergence Instructor: BrendaSheer Duration: 4 Weeks Time: Fall 2010

At the site, the dome faces inward, leaving a gigantic geodesic dome sinking in the middle of nowhere facing the busy street. People will likely be walking around the dome and be pulled into the site. At night, the stage lights will come through these hexagon shaped holes, which will get attention by people that walk or drive past it. Videos could also be projected onto the geodesic dome, which will break the video into pieces. During winter, ice and snow will likely to form on these metal structures, which will create another interesting view.

Salt Lake City Film Center Escape Instructor: BrendaSheer Duration: 8 Weeks Time: Fall 2010

Since this project is for a film center, I used the concept of “escape� to illustrate the idea that movies are an escape from reality. To demonstrate this idea, I focused on a way that characters escape in movies: zig-zaging in and out of space or danger. Using abstract zig-zaging lines, I turned the spaces in-between these lines into an abstract form of escapism. I then used this shape as the main form of the building.

Salt Lake City Film Center Escape Instructor: BrendaSheer Duration: 8 Weeks Time: Fall 2010

The first level is mainly for screening uses. On the second level, shops, movie library, and classrooms give the community more opportunities to learn about films.

Class Art Works Pen/Charcol/Pencil Instructor: Tony Serrato Time: 2010-2011

Ever since I was younger, I’ve always liked to play with different medians to recreate images usings different textures and techniques.

Using digital or traditional medians, I like to explore with different colors and textures to create certain feels of each art pieces.

Volunteer Work Hylozoic Ground Artist: Philip Beesley Time: August 2011

The Hylozoic Ground experimental architecture series developed by architect Philip Beesley has been expanded and refined by researchers, engineers and designers from around the world. It is an immersive, interactive environment that moves and breathes around its viewers, creating an environment can ‘feel’ and ‘care’.

Volunteer Work VESTA Foundation Organization: VESTA Foundation Time: July 2011

Vesta Foundation is a volunteering program focusing on helping the poor in Philippine. In August 2011, we traveled to Hope Village in Manila, where the living situation is cruel. Our main goal is not only help them build homes but also to help them have better living sitiuation.
