“PLACES OF PROTEST: INTERGRATED STREETSCAPES” | ARCH10B: DESIGN FUNDAMENTALS INSTRUCTOR: COLEMAN GRIFFITH, SPRING 2011


PLACES OF PROTEST: “INTERGRATED STREETSCAPES” CONCEPTS & OBJECTIVES The concept and objective of the Villa NM project is an introduction for first year students on teaching digital modeling skills and techniques using various programs to recreate the building designed by UN Studio. This project consisted of background research, analysis of features and details, and model creation of the home. The home was a summer vacation house designed on a hill with surrounding woodlands. As a intimate and private getaway home, its compactness does not restrict any program, leaving you with a simple, private, family and nature oriented retreat from urban life.

CASE STUDY: VILLA NM | ARCH12B: VISUAL COMMUNICATIONS II INSTRUCTOR: NEIEL NORHEIM, SPRING 2011


CASE STUDY PROJECT PROJECT: Villa NM ARCHITECT: UN Studio LOCATION & DATE: Bethel, New York | 2006

CONCEPTS & OBJECTIVES The concept and objective of the Villa NM project is an introduction for first year students on teaching digital modeling skills and techniques using various programs to recreate the building designed by UN Studio. This project consisted of background research, analysis of features and details, and model creation of the home. The home was a summer vacation house designed on a hill with surrounding woodlands.

As a intimate and private getaway home, its

compactness does not restrict any program, leaving you with a simple, private, family and nature oriented retreat from urban life. Ben van Berkel, one of the lead designers on the project, described the interaction of the design as a "bloblike moment" and “a simple shoe-box shape to bifurcate into two separate split-level volumes, one clinging to the northern slope, the other detaching itself from the ground to leave room underneath for a covered parking space.” The sloping site is used as device for programmatic and volumetric organization of the house, enabling spatial relationships between the ground and interior. The surfaces of the home transition as they rotate along a horizontal axis from vertical to horizontal. The internal spaces maximize potential by freeing up outer walls containing large glassed windows with wrap around views. INTERIOR VIEW - KITCHEN

SURFACE & FORM DESIGN | ARCH12B: VISUAL COMMUNICATIONS II INSTRUCTOR: NEIEL NORHEIM, SPRING 2011


SURFACE AND FORM DESIGN PROJECT

CONCEPTS & OBJECTIVES The surface and form project was an assignment that combined lectures of minimal surfaces and form creation by using parametrics to create a pavilion on the exisiting site of the Villa NM. The pavilion would act as a replacement for the home that burned down and act as an art gallery and exhibition for art pieces. The requirements for the pavilion was to design an architectual space using a tile created by the student and design a space to hold specific spatial programs. Surface geometry and previous knowledge of modeling techniques learned throughout the course helped achieve our finals results. Prior to this project, students have used inspiration from other sources like site influence, abstract relationships, and external references for their design. However, the surface and form assignment enabled students to work backwards and create this project from scratch without any outside influences towards the design. By creating a tile and using transformative actions like copying, mirroring, and small scale changes, this complex form emerged at the lower bottom of the page.

CASE STUDY: SPATIAL SEQUENCE | ARCH10B: DESIGN FUNDAMENTALS INSTRUCTOR: COLEMAN GRIFFITH, SPRING 2011


CASE STUDY PROJECT: SPATIAL SEQUENCE ARCHITECTS: Miguel Barahona, PYF Arquitectura PROJECT: “The House on the Hill” LOCATION & DATE: Madrid, Spain | 2007-2010

CONCEPTS AND OBJECTIVES The concept and objective of the spatial sequence project is an assignment to teach students of circulation and program within adjacent & interlocking spaces. This project breaks down the spatial ordering, organizations, and relationships taught in the earlier lectures to be applied with real life buildings. The project consisted of students to diagram the organizations and relationships of the chosen building and to create a model using different materials as representation of spaces. For this example, the walnut wood refers to the base and the adjacent spaces, acrylic as the interlocking spaces, and the basswood as the circulation of the building. How the spatial sequence model works is that each piece of circulation that is removed from the model, an interlocking space is removed as well. This process will lead the viewer through the movement of the building and also the different spaces that create the building as a whole.
