[ SHANGHAI WORLD EXPO 2010 ]

As the theme of the 2010 World Expo was “Better City - Better Life,� the theme of the proposed U.S. Pavilion was no different. In recent years, architecture in the United States has undergone a renaissance. While much of the world still sees the United States as a nation of consumers, excess, and obesity, the paradigm for architecture in the United States and the world is sustainability. The 2010 World Expo is a chance for the United States to change their world image and reveal to other countries that it is globally minded and a leader in sustainable practice. In order to keep the footprint of the U.S. Pavilion to a minimum it sits mostly on recycled I-beams and steel bracing. Because Shanghai has relatively hot summers, each display space has a shaded cooling pond underneath it. This acts as a natural evaporative cooling system and is activated when wind blows over the ponds and through the site. The structure of the display spaces is made up of steel space frames clad with concrete panels. Behind the colored polycarbonate is an operable window system that allows each display space to be passively cooled. While during the day the polycarbonate serves as a double skin system to minimize heat gain, the polycarbonate glows at night. This is one of the primary iconic features of the U.S. Pavilion and is achieved through an LED system of lights installed into each cell of the polycarbonate. The cubes are designated display spaces that highlight important pieces of American culture. Among them are the Jazz Display, the American Authors Display, the American Scientists Display, the American Art Display, The American Architecture Display, and the Sustainable Methods Display. Each color pertains to a different display room. Visitors enter the lobby where they can find the cafe and the vertical circulation to the display spaces.

[ STANLEY THEATRE ]

The goal of Stanley Theatre is to build a theatre in the context of Old Town Alexandria using movie stills and aesthetic from the films of Stanley Kubrick. As a total designer, Kubrick often had control of every aspect of his films, including the set. Many of Kubrick’s scenes take place in front of scenery that suggests a strong vanishing point, like hallways, and places with obvious symmetry and horizontal lines. With this in mind, the theatre’s circulation depends on long view tubes that stretch from the entrance to the outdoor theatre on the Potomac. The theatre relies on reinforced brick shear walls to support the concrete that fits between them. There are two theatres: the indoor theater which is visible from the street, and the outdoor theatre which is suspended over the Potomac. When there are no movies being shown, the space is accessible as a public deck that meets the water. Films inside Stanley Theatre are not viewed on a screen, they are displayed on the raw structural concrete of the theatre. Strips of elongated horizontal acoustic panels enhance the performance of the movie as well as contribute to drawing the human eye to the screen, just as Stanley Kubrick used vanishing points to enhance the drama of his movies. The indoor theatre also consists of six balcony spaces and a general viewing space. There are twelve balcony seats that are available upon reservation and there are eighty-eight general viewing spaces - giving the indoor theatre one-hundred available seats. The outdoor theatre is made up of a series of four viewing pods that are suspended over a portion of the Potomac River. Each pod has 28 seats available and is protected from the elements. Films in the outdoor theatre are projected onto a docked ferry with a large temporary viewing screen. There is one showing per night.

[ FM VENUE ]

FM Venue seeks to create a new paradigm of movable and modular businesses. As a fifth year thesis project, this prototype serves as our initial means of research and development within the market of moveable and functionally flexible businesses. Our project is to pursue an architectural solution that will synchronize with the City of San Francisco’s experimentation with flexible urbanism through the fabrication of a recycled shipping container into a flexible food venue. The aim is to connect all essential forms of local culture through the fusion of locally grown food, local people and local art. With food and art as essential elements to culture and to the urban identity, we seek to be programmatically and geographically flexible in order to explore the idea of flexible urbanism.
