Our proposal consists of a design for a prototype for a high-performance, use intensive outdoor public recreation hub, for construction on a vacant urban property. The HYPO-PARK, as we call it, is an actionable, place-based remedy to address the link between childhood obesity and the dearth of per capita park space, particularly in those neighborhoods of Los Angeles that are economically depressed. It is intended to serve as a demonstration project that both illustrates and proves the viability of a new model of public recreation space: one that a) is easier to acquire and realize than a conventional park; b) is designed to attract and promote the kinds of aerobic activities that are most conducive to healthy lives; and c) that in doing so, will become a popular hub of activity that supports the (social) health of the community that will galvanize around it. Most importantly, HYPO-PARK is designed to make exercise entertaining, challenging and a spectacle all at once. It is a safe, high-density public jungle gym/playground, with apparatus to appeal to children of all ages—from toddlers to seniors.

As urban land rises in cost, the cost of acquisition has therefore become an increasingly large share of the cost of producing a park, to the point of rendering it an unsustainable proposition, except in the smaller affluent cities. The HYPO-PARK solves this conundrum by learning from, on the one hand, the odd combination of the multi-level, private indoor gyms that are found in the urban core of numerous cities, and the indisputable if disturbing success of McDonald’s “Playlands”, which are often the only recreational sites in many poorer urban areas in the U.S. The application of the “highest and best use” logic of real estate development can lead to the creation of more use-intensive—and active (aerobic)--models of public recreation space. The HYPO-PARK provides more activities and square footage on a parcel of land roughly a third the size of a comparable conventional park. Rather than being an “empty center” of a neighborhood, as many large parks can be, the tall and compact HYPO-PARK will be a focal point. A new kind of “service station”, its also includes supplemental amenities aimed at prolonging the duration of each visit and drawing incidental traffic, such as vending machines selling natural juices and snacks, and a bike repair and rental station.

ambientgrant informatics funded bus stop bench

EMBEDDED SIGNAGE In most cities, sidewalks are neglected spaces even though they are occupied by pedestrians throughout the day. In particular, citizens waiting for public transit at bus stops are often frustrated by inhospitable conditions as well as a lack of information about when the bus will arrive. This project brings aesthetics, technology, and innovative design together to create a new public experience in Westwood Village Los Angeles. To do so, it advances research into the use of “ambient informatics,” a type of pervasive computing that communicates information in everyday environments without the use of language, numbers, visual icons, or screens. cityLAB's Ambient Informatics project contributes to the study of Intelligent Transit Systems in heretofore unexplored ways by connecting urban transit’s complex data streams to people’s everyday lives through elegant, non-symbolic representations. This transdisciplinary collaboration between cityLAB and the UCLA Center for Research in Engineering, Media, and Performance (REMAP) with support from the UCLA Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research explores the potential for ambient informatics to impact the city experience, the sidewalk experience, and the wait-time experience. This ambition is achieved through the design, fabrication, and installation of an illuminated bench at the Weyburn Terrace Bruin Bus stop on Weyburn Avenue in Westwood Village next to the main UCLA campus. Playfully named “Ida and Dactyl” for its resemblance to the asteroid and its moon, the sidewalk installation employs a beacon system within the core (Dactyl) of the bench (Ida) using TCP/IP controlled, solid-state, energy efficient LED lighting that can be seen from a distance. Drawing on real-time data on Bruin Bus positions, the bench glows, growing brighter and changes color to communicate information about bus arrival and create new atmospheres along the sidewalk.

ON VICARIOUS CAUSATION :: THE PROBLEM OF COMMUNICATION BETWEEN TWO SUBSTANCES

According to Viktor Safron, planetesimals are planets in their infant stages of development: cosmic dust grains collide and stick to form larger and larger bodies until they are large enough to attract each other directly through their mutual gravity. Planetesimals rely on turbulent motions in the gas to cause collisions that lead to sticking. During this attempt to connect many face violent collisions causing them to break apart prior to maturation into planets. But in rare cases, when vicarious causation manifests connection a new real object comes to be… In On Vicarous Causation, Graham Harmon defines vicarious causation as formal cause - “To say that formal cause operates vicariously means that forms do not touch one another directly, but somehow melt, fuse, and decompress in a shared common space from which all are partly absent... two entities influence one another only by meeting on the interior of a third, where they exist side-by-side until something happens that allows them to interact. In this sense, the theory of vicarious causation is a theory of the molten inner core of objects.” Planetesimals (entity one) exist with cosmic dust (entity two) in space (interior of entity three). They exist side by side until they collide (vicarious causation) and are attracted through mutual gravity and stick (connect) to create planets (new real object). Graham Harman states, “Two vicariously linked real objects do form a new object, since they generate a new internal space. And every connection in itself is an object. When two objects give rise to a new one through vicarious connection, they create a new unified whole that is not only inexhaustible from the outside, but also filled on the inside with a real object sincerely absorbed with sensual ones. And just as every connection is an object, every object is a result of a connection. The history of this connection remains inscribed in its heart, where its components are locked in a sort of kaleidoscopic duel.” In variations on a disco ball we explored object oriented philosophy in regards to the objects orientation to itself and its “allure” by attempting to split the real object from its sensual qualities. In ambient informatics we propose a different approach. Ambient Informatics would not focus on the singular object and its relationship to itself, but on multiple real objects and their connection to one another. In doing so the aim would be the separation between the real objects and sensual objects in the attempt to further understand “allure.”

MARQUEE IS THE STAGE

The hinged front facade is marque, awning and stage. Starting in a vertical position, it promotes the theater during the day. At night, as patrons start to arrive, it transitions in a drawbridge like motion from marquee to awning, providing a covered outdoor courtyard. Once theatergoers move inside for the show, they watch as the facade undergoes one last transformation, carving through the theater, to take its place as the performance stage. 1

The theater is presented as a city scaled room located on Highland Blvd. The front facade opens as a signifier to the city that a performance is about to begin, and then closes, encapsulated within a semi transparent faceted shell. In this closed state, it retains its city presence as onlookers can see stage lights and catch glimpses of performers as they are lowered from the fly tower onto the stage.

VOLUMIZED STRUCTURAL SPIRAL Structural tubes spiral around the central core left behind by the moving facade. These tubes become volumized and occupiable as they accommodate various theater requirements, becoming fly tower, lighting, electrified acoustics, stairs, sound booth, stage, seating and boxes. This structure accounts for the only enclosed spaces within the theater, as the surrounding, faceted skin is semi-transparent, making the theater appear open to the surrounding city.

Gone are the days of the permanent single family home of suburbia. The reality of urban sprawl is becoming less feasible, cities are becoming increasingly dense, populated with a younger generation that is increasingly mobile, city hops, has disposable income and is projected to have at least 4 career changes within their lifetime. In fact, statistics show that most first time home buyers will only own their home for 5-7 years.

The ‘Slice House” targets this new generation of home buyers. This kit of parts home, totaling just over 850 sqft, is geared towards a person, or couple, who can afford to buy, but wants a ’5 year’ home that reflects the impermanence of their lives. This house is also geared towards a group that recognizes that large houses, which have huge price tags both monetarily and environmentally, are no longer socially relevant. This kit of parts house is easy to erect, easy to maintain and makes up for its small footprint by extending the program of each living space to the outside. Thus, residents are encouraged to minimize their indoor activities while maximizing time spent outside.

KIT OF PARTS CONSTRUCTION Structurally, this house works as a connected network of moment connected steel C channels. Each “slice” is structurally stable, however, when bolted to the adjacent slice, the entire unit becomes a rigid frame that can withstand all necessary loads. Adding to the ease of assembly, the plumbing is packaged together within the middle slice, which is, along with its complete structure, is prefabricated prior to arrival on site. The front and rear slices are simply assembled and bolted to the middle slice, wired,cladded, and it’s ready!

ORGANIZATION AND ACCESS

Programmatically, the school contains both private and community shared spaces. Buildings were organized based on their level of privacy, where the individual classroom are seen as the most private spaces, followed by areas such as the cafetorium and library, that are shared between school attendees, and finally, the most public areas that are open to the community after school hours (the multipurpose room, the flex classroom and outdoor place areas). School common spaces are grouped and serve as the gateway between the private classrooms and the more public spaces, which are organized on opposite sides of this main building. Furthermore, in an attempt to both respond to the existing dense site conditions and reinforce the private spaces, these private spaces are elevated off of the ground plane. Locking the main building secures the school, while leaving shared spaces accessible.

Investigating a design logic that could address the raised ground plane condition, there was an opportunity to focus on the development of an intricate set of connecting walkways and elevated plazas. Since the ‘ground’ changes elevation throughout the school, the walkways can react to this by changing between elevations and function, where they can seamlessly move from ground to stair to roof cover. 5

Informed by a series of material investigations in drape-forming thermoplastic sheet material, our envelope proposal translates modernist spatial ideas and its geometric structure through a thick envelope of indeterminate depth. This envelope conceives of space as expansive yet contained - an architectural commentary on the potential lightness of mass. Volume is both spatially and visually present without the material weight that volume typically anticipates. Individual drape formed plastic panels are formed produce a series of convex, layered panels that expand towards the boulevard. The result pushes the entire envelope outward, expanding the workspaces and lobby of the building. In line with this investigation, custom-made steel mullions support the panels while minimizing sightlines. Horizontal and vertical members are sandwiched between the inner and outer plastic panels. Each has been reduced to their minimum structural necessity, cutting away excess material in a mirror of the panel’s silhouette.

PERFORMATIVE PATTERN A semi-translucent, metallic graphic overlay is applied to the inner and outer panels as a gradient. The graphic intelligently performs through strategic changes in gradient opacity. The amplitude between the two panels varies based on the inner panel’s drape. The functional changes in opacity and distance between inner and outer panels obfuscates views between the two panels, blurring the depth and interactions between panels.

With the use of an actuator, the system can take advantage of stack effect. By opening the sealed package, hot air rises out through the top of the building and is replaced with cooler, conditioned air from below.

TENT COLONIZATION

Aggregation Plan

Site Plan

Existing tent biology is sufficient to address minimal shelter needs post disaster. A preparedness shelter exceeds those needs by maximizing its physical biological performance and fostering communal relationships important to post disaster recovery. We propose a Biological Mashup in which the individual unit tent biology is as important as the collective. Meaning performance of each individual tent is maximized for stand alone use, and becomes a biological component of the overall colony when seamed together for communal use, promoting community as well as maximizing heat gain effects. As such, the collected tent units performance attributes combine to benefit the colony as a whole.

augmenting reality a multimedia exploration in film

PAPER WORLD

We explored the intangible world of emotions through the "people" and experiences that shape them. We showed this through an invented paper world, where characters move throughout the scene interacting with one another. Each character's emotional state is explicitly represented and changes based on interactions with other characters. The storyline follows one main character as he traverses through his unique world.

CHARACTER & PLOT DEVELOPMENT

This is a true narrative that follows our protagonist, affactionately named “weeboler” as he searches for love. Set to Real Life’s song, Send Me An Angel, “weeboler” chaces his crush through the city only to be crushed when she rejects his advances.

SET DESIGN :: MULTI MEDIA PROCESS The intention was to create a multi faceted, multi media project that blended Maya amimation, physical sets, and Adobe After Effects to create a 2.5D (dimension) world. The character was modeled and animated in Maya. The sets were drawn, laser cut, and constructed by hand, then photographed and compiled in After Effects. Sets and characters were influenced by steampunk art work.
