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.

DONGDAEMUN CANOPY CANOPY PLAN

The definition of the cosmopolitan atmosphere is the interaction between street canopy and the urban context underneath that. In my design, the canopy is an overhead roof structure on the designated street fabricated by a concrete shell covering, which able to provide shade and shelter from weather conditions such as sun, wind, snow and rain. Also the canopy will redefine the condition of the street and provide a better place for the local business owner and coming visitors. The site is located west of the Dongdaemun(the east gate) historic heritage site, where is large commercial district for small business owners and local market. The site is lively and dynamic with different kinds of small businesses like toy market, hardware shop and grocery store. However, since most of the businesses are independent, and the whole areas are self-grown without proper master design, the buildings on the streets are over randomize and the block could be considered as chaotic. So my design is aiming to connect these scattered individual commercial into covered market community. For the local people, the business is their way of living, so, my design would keep most of the local business untouched, and imposing my canopy on their existing commercial environment. The canopies are built by standalone fabric concrete shells covered units. Each of the pieces are reacting differently to different weather condition. The concrete shell is a double curvature triangular shape surface which open on one side and closed on the other two sides and most of the openings are located at south and east part and serving as wind tunnel and sunlight path. The winter cold wind is coming from north-west direction and summer warm breeze is from south-east direction, so the closed edge of my concrete shell will block most of the direct cold wind during winter and allow the warm air cycle during summer. Also, the canopy are using systematical drainage, the concrete shell will collect most of the rain and drain them through drainage pipe inside the column. For the rest of the rain dropping from the

One of the interesting features in Dongdaemun Canopy is the canopy is totally closed on the North side but open on the South side. The opening on south side will allow sufficient sunlight to enter the canopy, creating dynamic shade and allowing sun-heat to enter.

Most of the cold wind is coming from north-west of the site, so the closed canopy of the north side will prevent most direct cold from entering the inside the canopy.

The opening of the canopy will introduce small amount of rain to enter the planting area directly on the south side of the canopy unit. And overall design gesture will create an interesting microscopic atmosphere inside the canopy.

On the other side, the warm and humid wind from south side will be partially allowed circulate inside the canopy.

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.

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.

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.
