ARCH 102 FINAL PROJECT: COM

A FINAL PRESENTATION OF THE 2012 ARCHITECTURAL EDUCA SHOWCASING THE ESSENTIAL QUALITIES AND INTERRELATIO

IN ELEVATION, HUMAN SCALE DIRECTS AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE USE OF SPACE AND DASHED LINES REPRESENT AREAS WHICH EXIST IN THE RAVINE, BELOW THE HEIGHT OF THE OPPOSING CLIFF. AN AXONOMETRIC EXPLODED VIEW SHOWS THE SYSTEMATIC AND STRUCTURAL APPROACH OF THE PAVILION AND ITS ORIENTATION IN THE RAVINE. A SECTION/ELEVATION COMPARISON COMMUNICATES A SENSE OF DEPTH IN THE DESIGN AND THE CARVING OF THE EARTH AS A DOMINANT STRATEGY FOR CREATING SPACE. THE TITLE, VISTA ACADEMIA, EMBRACES TWO KEY IDEAS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PROJECT: VISTA/VIEW AS A DRIVING FORCE IN THE DESIGN PROCESS AND ACADEMIA AS THE ENVIRONMENT OR COMMUNITY CONCERNED WITH THE PURSUIT OF RESEARCH, EDUCATION, AND SCHOLARSHIP.

CITY EDGE ANALYSIS: MUMBAI MUMBAI EXISTS ORIGINALLY AS THE SEVEN ISLANDS OF BOMBAY. INDUSTRIALIZATION OF THE CITY LED TO MASSIVE LAND RECLAMATION AND DEVELOPMENT, AND THE ISLANDS WERE MERGED INTO ONE MASS. THE EDGES OF THESE ISLANDS ARE NO LONGER VISIBLE ABOVE GROUND.

SHIFTING ATTENTION TO A KEY EDGE IN MUMBAI, THIS DOCUMENT BEGINS TO ANALYZE THE COASTLINE AS FOUR SEPARATE ENTITIES. WHERE LAND MEETS WATER IN MUMBAI, THERE ARE EITHER SEA WALLS OR BEACHES ON THE WEST COAST, AND HARBORS, PORTS OR MANGROVES IN THE BAY.

MUMBAI’S COASTLINE VARIES IN SIZE AND THICKNESS. PORTS AND SEA WALLS ARE THIN, HARD EDGES WHICH ARE DENSER AND MARK TERRITORIES ALONG THE COAST USED FOR RESIDENTIAL OR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES. BEACHES AND MANGROVES ARE THICK, SOFT EDGES SERVING RECREATIONAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL NEEDS.
