Detroit Institute for Remediation Technology According to many, the proper name for the current era in Detroit is ‘post-industrial’. Afterwards, proceeding, ad memoriam; the term invokes forlorn nostalgia, resounded by national regret. It is an explicit acknowledgement of loss and death. The Motor City was once synonymous with industrial enterprise, but what does it symbolize in this century? Popular media has repeatedly categorized this urban center as a certain kind of crisis; an economic, ecological, and cultural failure. But has contemporary media entirely missed the opportunities presented within inherent failures? Former Governor Jennifer Granholm projected one model for the Southeast Michigan Region: an economy of the “green-collar”.

TechTown and NextEnergy in the New Amsterdam District of Detroit have established economic incubators for researchbased start-ups such as NexTek Energy, A123 Systems (lithiumion batteries), and Asterand PLC (stem cells and human tissue). Besides providing subsidized space to these companies, Detroit has become attractive as a “research corridor” with direct proximity to Wayne State University, the University of Michigan, and Michigan State University. These start-ups are beginning to operate on a national scale as they continue to take advantage of working in Detroit.

If the model of the research-based organization became the new paradigm of Detroit economics, then the city may be able to effectively re-industrialize.

Bringing together energy research and biotechnology, greencollar industry could be best defined as turning bio-ecological improvements into capital gains. Considering that Detroit has a surplus of brownfield sites and the means to support heavy research, environmental remediation can become a new industrial export. As in micro-economics, supply vs. demand: the United States demands the recovery of contaminated urban sites for development, Detroit supplies research expertise and manufactured mechanical-computational apparatus to public and private markets. In order to achieve such a model, an incubator could be established in the form of a catalytical institution to harbor green-collar organizations: the Detroit Institute for Remediation Technology (DIRT).

Globe Trading & Dry Dock Complex The former Globe Trading Building and Dry Dock Complex serves as the site for the DIRT. A brownfield industrial site along the Detroit River, the facility has a long-standing industrial history of shipbuilding. The Dry Dock in front of the complex has now become an inlet for the river, with part of the site being developed into a state park. The Detroit Riverfront Conservancy is building a trail that will stretch along the site all the way to Belle Isle. The Dequindre Cut trail also travels the east side of the building. Without any adjacent structures, the Globe stands as a monumental ruin in the current landscape. Its renegotiation for the DIRT will institute manipulations of scale, material conservation as a historic property, public interaction, and ecological phytoremediation strategies.

Structural Prosthesis Due to the extensive dilapidation of the current structural systems, only the primary steel structures can be salvaged to support heavy loads. To supplement new load-paths resultant of the excavations, structural prosthetics in the form of concrete piers and re-oriented trusses are applied to the building. The old steel contacts the new concrete to form box-frame sections that support each of the three wings. The re-oriented trusses are taken from the existing roof structures, which no longer need to support the loads of ship construction. Cavities in the piers hold mechanical systems.

Biochemical Response Wall This cable-scaffolding structure is remnant of excavation support during construction. The scaffolding is then applied with hundreds of LED lights and sensors that respond to real-time gas fluctuations. In a clean-air composition, the light defaults to a green hue. If the embedded sensors pick up another gas, the light changes to a color corresponding with the chemical composition. The response of the lights reads as fluid waves of color across the south façade of the Globe. Beyond dynamic aesthetics, the wall serves as an interface for visualizing conditional circumstance in the air. The cause and effect enables the viewer to understand the fluctuations in the air as a form of post-industrial data that is communicated by the environment. This data reads as a painting of light by nature; a commentary similar to Diego Rivera’s paintings of Detroit’s industrial condition. Because of the Globe’s international context on Detroit River, the south-façade response wall speaks to a much larger audience through Canadian vantage points and tourist photographs of Detroit.

cuina del topografia / kitchen topography With Barcelona serving as an international catalyst for cultural integration, the city provides diverse options in cuisine. The Cuina de la Topografía seeks to explore cultural specifics from the perspective of culinary preparation and cooking. Sited on the plaza of the famous Boquería Market, the Cuina is a culinary institution available to the public. Kitchen space is provided for scheduled courses and open for public use at all other times.

Six large kitchens sink beneath the plaza’s ground plane, preserving an urban topography populated by mysterious objects. The objects operate as windows, skylights, chimneys, and video screens for the kitchens below, while also promoting physical activity and outdoor cooking above ground. Three transparent bridges designate the over-underground condition and accommodate the studied paths of travel through the site. The Cuina explores the notion of tectonic flexibilities; the objects are static sculptures yet contain no predetermined formal use. Such flexibility encourages a variety of visitors to seek their own method of using the site. A narrative of the site is open to an individual’s personal interpretation, an allusion to the iconic ambiguity of Gaudi’s fantastic Barcelona roofscapes.

PERIPHERAL BUSINESS DISTRICTS The Peripheral Business District (PBD) is an urban type that has been generated by the relocation of major corporate entities to suburban interchanges. While similar to Edge Cities, PBD’s do not require residential development, and in most cases retain only daytime populations. Most PBD’s are referred to as “technology” or “business” corridors, where the centralization of the interstate freeway is crucial to district growth. As many corporations begin migrating back to city centers, the banal existence of most PBD’s threatens their economic and physical outlook.

The Crossroads Peripheral Business District is a speculative proposal that seeks to confront the future challenges for PBD’s. Sited in northern New Jersey, the district is located due to its beneficial infrastructural connections between freeways, commuter rail, and freight rail. While typical PBD’s develop according to fluctuations in suburban zoning, the Crossroads defines its urban growth boundary (UGB) from district inception. The process of infill has been developed according to generational scripts that account for automotive velocity from freeway off ramps, visual perceptions from within the district, and the distribution of morphological building masses. These morphological “types” seek to create a district with a perception of its own cultural identity, a first-step for the production of PBD’s that could use the benefits of interchanges to offer a new model for the acceleration of suburban density. 36

BOUNDARY DEFINITION To prevent the suburban sprawl of growth from the PBD, the district must be contained according to specific parameters. This list categorizes existing zoning measures and codes, but also examines the effects of re-zoning and developmental growth over several factors. The boundary must also be physically defined, either by roadway, railway, greenbelt, or existing features. The plan must coincide with such development of a boundary, projecting the implosion, rather than the explosion of density.

EMPTY TYPES Based on the concept of “empty form” as advanced by Reinhold Martin, the empty types may only suggest a meaning or function, instead searching for ambiguity of form. In this way, the types propose a truly “flexible” space, free of existing norms for the qualification of open office floor plans. Such types look to hold additional programs such as residential, retail, and civic.

DISTRICT SITE PLAN The types are color-coded to indicate the patterning of type throughout the site. The color gradient runs from lowest height to tallest height parcels. Medium-height/ medium-density forms take the smallest parcel areas, bringing those structures closest to the center plazas of the city, while high-rise and short types line the district peripheries.

CRANBROOK WELLNESS CENTER Cranbrook Academy’s Wellness Center provides a relaxation outlet for students, teachers, and patrons among the beauty of the wooded landscape of Eliel Saarinen’s master-planned campus. Implicitly, new construction within the campus is a precise contextual operation. A strategy of visual perception was researched according to James Corner’s essay, Eidetic Operations and New Landscapes. The theory proposes that wellmade landscapes are not simply objects in a field, but instead act as a changing sequence of events, dependent upon the view and perspective from different locations in the field.

The chosen site is at the east end of Cranbrook’s Grand Allée, effectively terminating the currently open-ended Allée, and de-emphasizing the road just to the north. This interception manifests itself in a singular masonry Wall, a provision of boundary and separation. This 10’-wide Wall internally becomes the datum of spatial organization. Cubic lanterns project from the Wall, responding to complex programmatic and microclimatic parameters. To remain performative in all of these operations, the Wall is assembled in several overlapping layers of construction. A cavity for human circulation splits the Wall into two masonry-steel structures that support one another. Within each of these members is another cavity that feeds HVAC and communications systems throughout the building and into a larger plenum housing the center’s “mechanical brain”. This system keeps all spaces operating haptically separate. 52

The Wellness Center is an integration of 3 distinct systematic layers, wrapped around each other to form inhabitable volume. The structural layer holds the building upright, but cannot do so without the strength of its detailing. The active climate systems of the building weave between the elements of the structure. In the case of this section, the active systems relate to the structure in four different ways. The first is as a horizontal plenum, suspended and separate from the structure. The second is as an enclosed room, sized to the exact dimensions of the mechanical requirements. The third way is through a built-in piece of the floor, as used to chemical distribution in the pools. The fourth is the primary system integration of the building, through the large interior (Wall). Here, structure is the exoskeleton around a system of vitals, held together by the complex detail system that makes this Wall both structural and mechanical.

++ CONOR WOOD / PORTFOLIO + _ How did Architecture :Become a Discipline? Character | pro•fes•sion | Noun: collection of similarities between entities that promote a method for classification.

“There can be only one method; but one can invent and apply a considerable number of systems... The system is arbitrary throughout its development, but once the system of variables - the character - has been defined at the outset, it is no longer possible to modify it, to add or subtract even one element. - Michel Foucalt

In attempts to define a natural history of organisms, observations have been compared between anatomical structures and general nouns that can define the entire character of a species. Foucault believes that this approach to taxonomy is inherently subjective, as language conventions have become the common basis for what is attributed to a theory of the definitive or actual. Often, such classifications are misunderstood by society based on these general characteristics, as is the case with the tomato. While the tomato is classified in cooking as characteristic of a vegetable, biological science points out its condition as a fruit. Classification in this case is determinate of appropriating use of the tomato, whether as a scientist or as a chef.
