It is a bread store, a distillery, a speakeasy bar, and with a brew master’s room and office. With the concept of having a high end exclusive bar, adjacent to college bars, the bar is hidden in sight.The bar is located halfway between the menproduction of whisky, and the nature production of barley, the green house. The programs are located according from learning the production process of whisky. The store front is a bread store that hides the production of whisky, which barley is one of the major ingredients for bread.

Arch 322 Extreme Sport Center Materials: chipboard, basswood,cardboard, sedum 2014 Site: flat suburban Program: parking, climbing area, winter snoboard/ summerskateboard area, hangout space, WC facilities, mechanical, storage

Parking

Outdoor Climbing Area

I want to create a building that its form is as closely related to the activities in the building or outside the building as possible. Skateboarding and snowboarding both need height and distance for the speed. Also, climbing and bouldering need vertical or horizontal surfaces. To maximize the distance and height for the activities, the building is cutting into the ground and the longest and steepest trail is oriented diagonally. The building shape is formed from a series of sections that is similar to the study model’s circulur like section. The bottom part of the building, which is a hollow bowl also serve as half indoors skateboard area. The entire upper part of the building can be used for skiing in the winter and for skating in the summer. Skiers go down the building and to the elevator at the parking level, the elevator becomes the ski lift The wall near the highest part of the building, provide vertical surface for both outdoors and indoor climbing walls.

Arch 322 Ski Resort Materials:cardboard chipboard, paper, sedum 2014 Site: slopped mountain Program: hangout space, cafe, ski patrol office WC facilities, mechanical, storage Skiers/Snowboarders constantly look for interesting runs on the slope. The top of the building provides an extension of the landscape, allowing skiers and snowboarders to ski on in a curvy pathway in horizontal and vertical dimensions, with the top of the manmade landscape being the viewing plateform, looking down towards the three half pipes that meet in intersection, and looking up to the cliff of the natural landscape.

Arch 322 City Extreme Sports Center/Office Materials: cardboard,chipboard,basswood,tape,sedum,Sweets construction book 2014 Site: flat city Program: climbing area, cafe, hangout space, office, WC facilities, controlled public space It is an extreme sports center and office building located in a city, with a climbing wall extendning from the ground all the way to the top of the building, through the space between the ovals that rotate from the first floor to fifteenth floor. With “layering“ concept in mind, starting with the book study model trying to express the flipping of the pages and the pages coming out of the hard cover. The tape study models helped me determined the form of the building, driven by oval shapes and the continious green space, or surface.

Arch 316 Vanna Venturi House Case Study Poster 2013 Vanna Venturi House is a house designed by Robert Venturi for his mother, located in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia. It is one of the first post-modernist buildings. Instead of modernist’s strict rules and minimalist design, Robert Venturi challenged them with complexity and contradiction. What appears to be a Gabel roof from the painted green façade; the roof is actually behind the oversized façade. The house is constructed of concrete masonry for the façade and the exterior walls, wood frame and steel for the roof and floor plates. The façade is like a billboard, with the complex structure behind a large board. Robert Venturi also broke the rule of no decoration on buildings, by adding in functionless arch or even usesd words as decorations. The OPEN sign and lights around the billboard serve as decorative elements for the billboard. The billboard is structured with the actual framing of the façade, the roof and the floor plate. The structure that supports the billboard is the extension of the original steel structure.
