Architecture Shelter Sactuary Research Connection Sculpture Presentation

Shelter Our task at hand was to create a piece of shelter. This shelter was comprised of a system of construction that became more of a creature. One that could evolve and mold to the program and design of any piece of architecture that we needed to fulfill. For me, this creature evolved into a woven structure that bent and folded to meet the needs behind our idea of public shelter.

Research For my research and facade project, I had the chance to study the construction and ideas behind the Tod’s building, in Tokyo, Japan. We began to study how the building was built and the sytems behind it. We decided to more closely study the concepts behind the building that helped Toyo Ito to design one of the most influential buildings in Tokyo. From there, we combined the building construction and concepts to create a scale model that represented both.

Sanctuary

Creating a place for reflection and memory among such a historically rich site, it was important to create a sense of being humble. A place of solidarity and rememberance that could inspire the idea that death is a powerful and overwhelming entity that is unnavoidable. Combining three large concepts from the early stage, i had created a space that inspired the concept of being a small piece of a larger system.

Connection

Creating a space that connects two major aspects of our school was a project that struck close to each designer. For me, this space was a place not only for passing through, but for the sharing of ideas and displaying the massive amounts of work that each student creates. This space was largely formed by the facade system that created multiple spaces between the layers when moving to and from the building.
