Project Type: Institutional Studio 603: Professor Karen King Location: Albuquerque, USA Tools: Autocad, Rhino, Grasshopper, Vray, Google SketchUp, Photoshop Summer 2017: The University of New Mexico

Project Brief A space with materials for students to let their curiosity and imagination come to life. An informal, playful, atmosphere for learning to unfold. A space where making, rather than consuming is the focus. A space where trans-disciplinary learning, inquiry, risk-taking, thinking, crafting, tinkering, and wondering can blossom.� - Ann Smart

UNM Campus plan with Site location

Primary influence of design for this building is the urban position of the site. Located in a prime location across Central Avenue, Albuquerque with the Sandia mountains in the east and a commercial urban zone in the south, the site itself is an urban heat island. The motive is to create a public space for the city and creative space for students which responds to the urban conditions and program conditions.

Visual points across the site are identified and the topography, which responds to the pressures with in the building, and across the site are identified and the layer formed is used as roof and the spaces created beneath are used as floor spaces for the program.

Sectional Elevation

A green roof has been adopted inorder to reduce the urban heat island effect and to create an Urban park where the public can access the roof. A Glass curtain wall with structural steel mullions has been used for the Facade system inorder to exhibit the crafts being done inside the makerspace with labs and modelling spaces facing Central Avenue and in addition to utilize the natural light to create energy efficient building.
