Comprehensive Housing Studio / Winter 2012 A comprehensive studio that asked us to critically examine housing in downtown Vancouver

Our fourth studio was a required comprehensive studio that asked us to examine current building practices in downtown Vancouver. the project is an exploration into the potential opportunities exist in high density urban living that are not addressed in the current model of building practices in Downtown Vancouver. Embrace the proximity to neighbours and infrastructure to develop a new way of thinking about how people live in density.


Separate programmatic volumes and design each independently of one another based on required conditions at each level

Reconnect

Allow for shared spaces between programmatic volumes

The underground grid based on parking structure is traditionally extruded vertically and becomes a determinant of the form and direction of the living spaces. This methodology does not always reflect optimal conditions for every programmatic element in a building. This project proposes a design and construction methodology that reflects different programmatic requirements.

Living in density allows for the possibility of energy extraction from the sanitary sewer system. Pools require a lot of energy and the system uses the heat extraction from the sewer to heat and dehumidify the thermal baths. hot humid air contacts the chilled slabs releasing water before the chilled water is returned to the sewer to accumulate heat.

SAND FRANCISCO

HEDONISM AT SAN FRANCISCO’S EDGE / FALL 2011 A columbaria and plaza at the Sutro Bath ruins on the pacific shore of San Francisco.

In this studio we were given the site of the former sutro baths at the western edge of San Francisco and were asked to develop a 21st century hedonism in the historical pleasure based program that happens at the costal edge of large cities, such as Coney Island of New York, Playland at the Beach in San Francisco, and Venice Beach Pier of Los Angeles.

My project looked to the historical condition of San Francisco as a landscape of constantly shifting sand dunes and attempted to create an artificial coastal sand dune system that responded to the seasonal conditions of the site with its high winds through out most of the year and high intensity winter rainfall. Coastal sand dunes are created when high winds accumulate sand around an object.

Backdune


The resultant of my investigation was the development of a system that accumulates sand in strategic locations from February to November and washes it away from November to February. The sand accumulations can be used to differentiate spaces within the large open plaza creating private spaces for functions.

As time passes sand accumulates in strategic locations. these differentiate spaces but do not inhibit habitation.

EDMONTON POOL CENTER POOL DESIGN THROUGH DETAILS / FALL 2011 An exploration of details and materials in the construction of a new small scale recreation facility in downtown edmonton

In this project, we were asked to design a pool facility for a small community located outside Edmonton. During the first part of the exercise, we were asked to develop a form that responded to site conditions and context. In the second part, we were asked to select potential materials and explore the properties of our material choices through our design process and a condensation analysis. I chose Alucobond panels on the exterior and decided to apply HiBARTM to the interior to dampen sound, insulate, and fireproof the steel structure. An interior panel system would cover the exposed HiBARTM.

SURREY NEWTON T.O.D

A NEW TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT IN NEWTON B.C. / SPRING 2011 A NEW TRANSIT DEVELOPMENT AS PART OF THE REVITALIZATION PROJECT OF A SURREY COMMUNITY.

Our second studio asked us to design a mixed use transit development with complex programmatic requirements such as a community center, commercial, and transit. My strategy was to create independent glass massings and the incorporation of a metal paneling system that provided shade for the recreation center and visually differentiated the different program types. to address the transit circulation, I proposed a series of holding spaces similar to an airport that could accommodate the transit space requirements.

BAMBOO

A CULTURE OF MAKING / SPRING 2011 An exploration of joinery and the properties of bamboo in a 1:1 structure.

This one week project asked us to investigate the combinatory properties of 1� bamboo, 1/2� bamboo, flat bamboo strips, string, and stretch fabric n the production of a small structure capable of holding two people. The project challenged us to explore the visual, experimental, innovative, and spatial aspects of design while helping us derive an intuitive feel for structure and materiality as contingent attributes of architecture.
