T h e U so lia n Ho me

The Usolian Home, inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian Homes, is a solar powered household capable of responding to natural disasters in the Midwest. The design allows the home to be shipped in two modules, which meet against the core wall, a limestone panel system that cuts through the home. The first module, the base unit, would be shipped immediately to respond to a disaster situation while the second can be delivered at a later date to transition the relief unit into a permanent dwelling. Large overhangs protect the south façade from solar gain during the months that require cooling, yet allow the winter sun to heat the home. The top layer of clerestory windows contains a light diffusing insulation that allows for daylighting while reducing energy loss. By using the sun’s energy to operate without a connection to the grid, the Usolian Home is capable of responding quickly to a natural disaster, while allowing a family to comfortably transition into a permanent dwelling.

Urban Reinvestment: Net Zero Infill House

In order to achieve Net Zero status, this home features many different advanced systems. Utilizing insulated concrete forms (ICF) for construction allow for an air-tight home. ICF construction provides many benefits including: energy efficiency, termite protection, stronger construction during storms, and a unique aesthetic from within. Other systems featured in the design are both a photovoltaic (PV) array as well as a solar water heating system. Along with the energy efficient geothermal system, these will all allow for lower energy bills for the home owner. Each room of the home receives ample daylight. This allows the homeowners to navigate throughout the home without turning on lights. Combined with the unique stair light-monitor, this home features plenty of daylighting. This Net Zero home serves as a great example of what is possible for the future.

Sustainable Lab: Marine Research and Education Center

Located on a 96-acre site on the north central coast of St. Croix, the Marine Research and Education Center provides a unique opportunity for both scientists and the local community to engage in the natural habitat around them. The Center is designed with a small footprint to aid in preserving both the ecological and cultural history of the site. This small footprint also allows for minimal fossil energy consumption. The Center utilizes many technologies that help to make it sustainable. SolaTubes allow the users to adjust the amount of daylight entering the space. A raised floor system allows for adaptability and easy maintenance. The insulated metal panels also allow the building envelope to evolve as rapidly as the function does. The Marine Research and Education Center enables scientists to easily conduct experiments. They can do so with great control over the building features. The center also invites the local community in and welcomes them with numerous educational opportunities.

19


Rainwater Collection

The Sustainable Lab collects all roof rainwater runoff. Water is either stored in collection devices like these where people can see them, or in large cisterns below the structure.

Louver System

Placed on the outside of the Insulated Metal Panels is a dual-function louver system. This system allows the occupants inside to adjust the amount of daylight entering the rooms. The louvers can also be fully closed to provide hurricane wind protection for the building.

Insulated Metal Panels

The Sustainable Lab utilizes Insulated Metal Panels in its construction. These panels provide the building with a very high R-value along with an air-tight construction. Panels can be easily removed and reconfigured as needed. This concept allows the building to adapt and evolve over time as the needs within the building change.

SolaTubes

By utilizing SolaTube technology, the Sustainable Lab can be completely lit by daylight. Users are given the ability to control the amount of daylight entering a space, or turning on artificial lights within the SolaTubes.

In Memory of Alvin E. Sonne Palmer

Every once in awhile we meet someone that changes our lives forever. Sonne Palmer is one of those people. He is more than a dedicated designer and educator; he is a mentor, and a role model. He is a friend. His teachings were about the product and conceptual ideas, rather than the final product. Sonne was for many students their favorite professor and he will continue to teach and inspire them the rest of their lives. Sonne has moved on to his next adventure but hopefully he knows just how much he is missed.

t h e TOYSHOP...Te a m PL AYSAM

TheToySHOP is a hypothetical architectural project taken from actual settings. As the Internet has grown to serve a larger and larger portion of the populance, benefit has gone to smaller as well as larger retailers and wholesalers. If a product is available on the internet, it will be purchased; and this is one premise of theToySHOP, sales will occur through internet commerce. Another precedent is that many customers prefer to see products first hand. Consequently, theToySHOP will display samples of all its’ products in an exhibit, user-friendly setting that permits, even encourages, users to touch, hold, and try-out the samples. If a user chooses to purchase a product, a new, boxed item will be retrieved from storage. Based on these precedents, theToySHOP is a place of selected children’s toys that focuses on the exhibition of these toys as well as the sale of these toys out-right and through the internet.

the TOYPLAYSAM shop Daniel Potash Craig Genet

Sleek, bright, and minimalistic describe the very essence of Playsam toys. These ideas can also describe the essence of a piece of architecture, the exact objective in the design of the Toy Shop. The metaphor of the toy is visually expressed in form, but is also expressed in principal. The showroom should not be overcrowded with toys, but instead maintain plenty of space between toys allowing each toy to stand unique from its’ peers. Customers and employees alike should also have plenty of space to circulate, work, and of course play with the toys. Finally, the environment is also a response to the toy, conveying brightness and warmth through light and materials, just as Swedish architecture achieves.

Alley Gallery Visitor’s Center

The Alley Gallery Visitor’s Center for Muncie, Indiana is a proposed project. The center is placed within the existing fabric and takes advantage of local resources for transportation. The building houses a small café, offices, computer room, and gallery where local residents and artists can meet to contribute their skills to the community. The design of the building is limited to 50 feet vertically and is marked visually by a large fly-wall meant to be the center’s beacon to the community. Large curtain walls open the western facade of the building onto the adjacent parking lot beckoning visitors to enter and flooding the interior with light. The upper most level of the building is interpreted as a viewing platform for the city, higher than all but one building around, gives visitors a good place to sit on an outdoor deck and take in the scene of downtown. The Alley Gallery Visitor’s Center is to continue the rehabilitation efforts of downtown Muncie and be the start of efforts to bring residents and visitors back to the center of the city.

Life at the “Crow’s Nest” is basic and uncluttered by the conventional trappings, furnishings and equipment of life in town. The owners enjoy the simplicity of camping but want it refined and not primitive and crude. It is located in a dunes area on an isolated semi-tropical Atlantic beach. The family comes here alone or with friends for the purpose of getting close to nature and for getting in touch with their own inner lives that tend to get crowded out in the city by planned activities, schedules, telephones, faxes, television, iPods and email. They sleep in sleeping bags, cook on a Coleman stove, have an ice chest for cold things, jugs for water, no tables and chairs etc.

Combining architectural and engineering training, INVERDE specializes in residential design and the use of ‘green’ strategies for both new construction and renovation projects. INVERDE’s services are an ideal match for clients who are interested in building a beautiful, healthy, thoughtful home that is also capable of reducing its impact on the environment. Building a green home benefits both the homeowner and the environment. Green homes use less energy, water, and natural resources, are generally more comfortable, and are healthier places to live. Emphasis is placed on energy performance in balance with natural lighting, views, indoor air quality, and a complementing aesthetic. Green homes can also follow a formal certification process to clearly establish green goals and objectives and verify achievement.

J.Cole Barn

When this client first approached INVERDE Design seeking a home design proposal, he wanted his new home to reflect the design of the pre-existing barn on his property. In order for the design team to move forward, a computer simulated visualization of the existing barn was necessary. This and many other renderings were used to assist the design team in making key decisions regarding the future home.


J.Cole Residence

Once the renderings of the barn were created, the design team at INVERDE Design was able to move forward into schematic design phase. The homeowner was having a difficult time visualizing the proposed concept, so these preliminary massing renderings were created. These renderings allowed both the design team and the client to learn about the concept and improve the proposed design.

53


Webb Front Porch

The design team at INVERDE Design initially proposed a unique detached front porch concept. Although construction on the home was already in progress, the design of the front porch was still a concern to the homeowners. They were not able to visualize what this unique concept was going to look like. This and many other renderings were quickly generated to allow them to see the proposed design.

From Design To Construction

Multiple renderings were generated from construction documents to allow the homeowners to visualize the design concept. These renderings were presented to the client at the construction site. It was during this meeting that the client approved the design to be built as a permanent fixture at their residence.

DQE Inc. is a 20-year-old company that provides practical products and expert support that improves the safety and readiness of the emergency response (fire, EMS, and emergency management) and healthcare community. Our new product ideas originate from multiple sources. The US Department of Navy approached DQE with an offer to license a product to use that they developed for their internal hazardous materials response team. Before seeking out an engineering/manufacturing firm, we needed to visually determine if our proposed product enhancements were feasible and if they had market appeal. “Daniel produced a 3-D visual prototype with engineered enhancements that was not only professional and detailed, but nearly 100% on the mark. He beat our expectations in terms of design, deadlines and budget. We met with several engineering firms who commended us on our excellent design work. When we told them that an architectural undergraduate did this work they were impressed (and so were we).� -Howard W. Levitin, MD President/CEO DQE,Inc.

<< Prototype Renderings

Multiple renderings were created of the proposed design solution. These renderings were developed to allow the company to see if the product had market appeal and to assist in obtaining investment funds for the project. The company hopes to have a market release in 2012. An informational pamphlet was also designed to be used in multiple company presentations.
