PROJECT 1 UNIT DESIGN The design of housing can be understood as an exercise in physical, environmental and social managment. Housing must be scaled to the size and proportion of the human body and designed to support basic human activities such as sleeping, eating with friends, and storing our most important posessions. Housing must mitigate our natural environment, making it as comfortable to live in coastal Japan as it is in west Texas. And housing is the setting for many of our most important social relationships which, as any teenager knows, can have important spatial imperatives. Housing, in short, creates the background for much our lives and consequently, its design can facilitate, support and even confound the way those lives are lived. PROJECT OBJECTIVES A) To develop a dwelling space with an articulate wrapper responsive to the needs of three roommates in close proximity in various climactic environments. B) To understand how issues of sustainability and passive systems affect living environments. > To understand the human body and its various dimensional

The first step in the process was to develop a handful of study models that would operate to defend the occupants from either disadvantages of the site’s climate or how to benefit from the site’s terrain. They ranged from massing models to conceptual models that were more focused on providing strategies or techniques. For instance, one would focus on how to collect local rainwater or act to block sunlight or wind.

Roof adapts to climate according to season, temperature and weather conditions. For instance, in freezing temperatures during the Winter, rain and particles of hail can be collected in the large roof device, filtered through a basin, and be used to cool the house through mist during hot summers. During the summer, the roof can be extended out to provide larger shading for the glass facade.

PROJECT 2 PRECEDENT ANALYSIS This second studio problem is two-pronged: Conduct a precedent analysis on an assigned housing projectin pairs. Each pair are asked to research, analyze and present a housing precedent projet. A total of six precedent projects are studied and documented in each studio.


PROJECT 2 PRECEDENT ANALYSIS Our group was assigned Charles Correa’s tube housing prototype, a concept that provided dwellings for low income families and a precedent at its time that would be implemented in his future architectural work.

PROJECT 3 LOW RISE DEVELOPMENT This project introduces the design of housing in a high-density, low-rise setting. Assigned with a typically-sized South Pasadena lot (approximately 50’ x 100’), then design four sustainable dwelling units that formulate and present a “user group profile” to specify for whom the development is targeted with respect to age range, family status, group size and composition, and special characteristics such as shared professional interests. From the user group profile, students are asked to proivde a detailed program of dwelling unit types, sizes, and characteristics.


SITE # 6

SITE: South Pasadena - Adjacent to the intersection of Meridian & Magnolia -There are 13 sites total, each student was given 1 site from the highlighted area


Several study models were developed for the site to sieve through several ideas at a rapid pace and narrow down to a single logic that would benefit the user group and adapt best to site conditions.

Conceptual study models were further developed in order to gather issues from the site and how they could be addressed through form and space. These served primarily as massing models and by inverting the initial model, it allowed us to achieve an understanding of voids, orientation as well as hierarchy through emphasis in massing. I found interest in having one monilithic mass with units carved out to provide a public pathway directly through the site.

SOUTH PASADENA ROW HOUSING Daniel Nguyen | Liz Falletta

Exposing the four units to natural light to characterize and diversify typical row housing units through light wells, skylights and punctures through the facade made it possible to manipulate the units. By directing light into specifc programmatic spaces, spaces would ultimately be defined by the quality of natural light penetrating the facade. Utilization of materials like wood and corrugated metal roofing to improve the overall sustainability of the project. Building orientation to site blocks direct sunlight penetration, yet allows light to come in through the north side. Similar units not only allow the users inhabiting the spaces to all receive equal quality of livng space, but it additionally makes the fabrication process simpler and more efficient.

PROJECT 4 MEDIUM RISE DEVELOPMENT In this final studio project, students develop an urban housing scheme that explores the potential for site, typology, historic precedent, nature, organizational ideas, ordering principles, circulation, material studies, event structures, and systems integration to inspire fresh combinations and well-reasoned frameworks for the design of domestic space. PROJECT OBJECTIVES A) To develop a thoughtful housing type responsive to local lifestyles and concerns unique to the greater metropolitan Los Angeles area. B) To identify active and effective dwelling spaces that emphasize the influence of human scale, compositional coherence and contextual compatibility. C) To illustrate that medium-density housing units can be tied to urban issues derived from site contours, neighborhood amenities, building orientation, prevailing patterns of movement, and a desire for natural light, ventilation and physical access. D) To employ design strategies that enhance or articulate clear and distinct relationships between interior and exterior space. E) To explore imaginative uses for available materials and thoughtful means for the application of structural systems. F) To account for the impact of environmental factors, the consumption of energy and the role of technology in the field of housing. > To establish that special issues linked to the disabled community might introduce design opportunities and suggest solutions that will stimulate rather than impede the formation of creative accessible environments.


SITE: La Cienega + Jefferson Blvd. -There were 3 sites: Little Tokyo, Silverlake, and La Cienega/Jefferson, all of which were located near an MTA station.


Several study models were developed; however, these are a few that contributed the most to the final design. They were key pieces in the development of the project and provided methodologies for housing.

Development of the units is key in providing adaquete living spaces for the ideal user group of graduate students and students getting out of college and shifting into the workforce. It is important to not only provide individualized units, but also have shared communal spaces that not only the public could access but the inhabitants of the apartment as well. The first floor is dedicated to commercial with retail spaces and a dog park that would allow apartment owners to walk their pets as well as pet owners in the community.

Once I had generated the overall form of the project, I began to modify unit placement. By pushing and pulling units, I was able to shed natural light into some spaces while providing shade in others, and the floorplans produced a porous quality, but lacked a consistency. Feedback from critics more or less stated that it was important to look back at my initial study models because the project had become to conservative, and although everything worked and functioned according to code, it would not be a desirable place to live due to its lack of authenticity.

It became apparent after the site visit that the territory lacked a sense of place; it was not welcoming. The project aims to provide a gathering space at the base of the site, allowing members of the community to aggregate in the public park and and provide a limited retail adjacent to the green space that would host space for commercial activity. The exposed public green space would invite public into the open space below while the upper floors would provide housing for the desired user group. Ideally, the project would provide a hub for metro train goers to remove themselves from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles and instead assemble in this enclosed, intimate space designed to promote social activity.
