SOULARD MULTIDISCIPLINARY LIBRARY St. Louis MO

This proposal is located in a historic French neighborhood in St. Louis, Missouri. The library intends to serve the community for events, scholastic endeavors and more.

03


SOULARD MULTIDISCIPLINARY LIBRARY

RENDERING

The four story building is programed according to sights and points of interest. The first floor serves as a welcome space and general event and congregation center. As the user ascends the program for the wing facing different urban context has different book stacks

04


SOULARD MULTIDISCIPLINARY LIBRARY

DESIGN CONCEPT

Material choice aims for a concrete structure with triple-pane glazing for all apertures.

The library is surrounded with a unique urban context, which served an initial driver for design. Extruded ‘fingers’ in the design point towards these sights of interest as a way to engage the user with the diversity of the surrounding area. 05


OLD Factories

St. Louis, MO

Surrounding old factories are the reminder of St. Louis prosperity from industrial area to 1970

SITE ANALYSIS

SOULARD MULTIDISCIPLINARY LIBRARY The Gateway Arch The Gateway Arch is the world’s tallest arch and landmark of St. Louis.

The MacArthur Bridge The MacArthur Bridge over the Mississippi River between St. Louis, Missouri and East St. Louis, Illinois is a 647-foot long truss bridge.

The Park Ave The park avenue is located center downtown of St. Louis. It will be the main transportation to the library.

The I-55 High Way Interstate 55 (I-55) is a major interstate highway in the central United States.

The St. Louis Downtown Downtown St. Louis is the central business district of St. Louis, Missouri, the hub of tourism and entertainment.

St Vincent Church the St.Vincent de Paul Church is one to the oldest active churches in St. Louis.

Foundation Box

Structural Line

The structure core tubes are connected by structural lines. Four boundary cores are all connected through the center core. Five structure tubes are the main load bearing component of the building. The four outer cores are designed sufficiently strong to resist all lateral loads on the building, thereby allowing the center core tube to be simply framed for gravity loads.

ALGORITHMIC ASSEMBLIES DIGITAL FABRICATION STUDIO

This Digital Fabrication Studio investigated the construction of rigid, volumetric structures from assemblies that consist of numerous, intricate pieces as well as unique representation Methods that enable assembly communication and fabrication.

THE COLLAGES

Three collages are made by Chenghui Nan, Tianyi Han, Ethan Miller. We three were organized into a design teams to finalize our digital fabrication project. We first revisited my Non-Random Voronoi Patterns as modules for the installation. We studied the connection details, materiality, and massing to begin to understand the potential for this system. We quickly realized that we could exploit the various contradictions within the system to create an installation made up of a random constellation of floating objects. At the same time, this system leveraged the voronoi logic to create an easily fabricated system made up of a finite number of components. 16

VORONOI MODULE DESIGN CONCEPT

3D VORONOI - The partitioning of a volume with points into convex polyhedra such that each polyhedra contains exactly one generating point and every point in a given polygon is closer to its generating point than to any other.

NODE FABRICATION PROCESS

3D-PRINT NODE AND CAP MOLD

POUR MOLDS

NODE ORIENTATION DURING PRINTING IS DETERMINED BY LIMITATIONS OF FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING PRINTING I.E. LIMITED OVERHANGS

WE USE A SILICON MOLD-MAKING RUBBER TO CAST A MOLD NEGATIVE OF EACH NODE.

3D-PRINT RUBBER RECEPTORS AND SNAP R

THESE PIECES RECEIVE AND HOLD THE ACRYLIC RO PRECISE ANGLE AND LOCATION. 25


REMOVE MOLDS

POUR CONCRETE AND PLACE CAP

THE RUBBER IS FLEXIBLE, YET STRONG, WHICH EASES THE REMOVAL OF THE MOLD.

THE CAP USES THE ALIGNMENT KEYS TO ENSURE ITS RECEPTOR IS IN THE CORRECT POSITION.

FINISHED NODES THE FINISHED PRODUCT IS A CONCRETE NODE WITH VOIDS AT SPECIFIC LOCATIONS, READY TO RECEIVE SILICONE TUBING AND ACRYLIC ROD

RECEPTOR DETAIL

THE MOLD CREATES A CAVITY IN THE CONCRETE NODE WHICH RECEIVES THE RUBBER RECEPTOR. THE RUBBER RECEPTOR GIVES THE ACRYLIC ROD A TIGHT FRICTION FIT WHILE ALLOWING SOME TOLERANCE AND REDUCING STRESS ON THE TIP.

TELESCOPIC SKYSCRAPER In this project, I want to explore potentiality of telescopic skyscraper, a building that can rise with sun in the morning and hide to the underground when natural disaster hits.

STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS

MORE THINKINGS

The main advantage of this kind of building is that it has ground protection and can resist on natural disasters like earthquake. Close An interesting interchange of the space may possible when two units change their altitude.

Open

In basic seismic design theory, the whole structure could be simplified as a stick with several “mass balls”.

2 1

When an earthquake strikes, “mass balls” are shaken with several modes. At last, it would cause structural failure. People in one unit may travel different floors of other units if those units change their altitude.

If telescopic structure hides into the ground, the outer soil would work as buffer and prevent the structure from damages.

Normal

Pressure added

Buffered

Earth pressure is equilibrium in normal condition. And if there is intense force like earthquake force added, the ground would gradually absorb them and minimize structural damage. 35

The different extrusion of each room make the inner corridor dynamic and complex, which also create so many interesting spaces along side the corridor like inner indoor garden and public balcony. INNER CORRIDOR 41


The east side is the “front” side of my building. Also East side have the strongest sun light. So the design of the east side is fully utilizing the incoming sunlight. The opening of the housing, the orientation of the corridor follow the sunlights.

CONCEPTUAL MODEL 2

The inspiration of this project came from telescope. When we see through telescope, light from different direction merge into one point, and same thing happens to my conceptual model 1. Lights from different direction pass through the “tube” and merge and divide at some place.

Since the housing is a massproduction housing, where the living and production laboring activities are coexsiting, I was trying to create a reverberate space between public space and housing & commercial space. Also, the lower level will be focus on commercial space and higher level will be the housing units.
