The Other Market Street Park

The Other Market Street Park is an urban sanctuary fusing public and private realms of the downtown mall and current Market Street Park into one concealed space. Learning from the lessons of the current Market Street Park, paths tangential to the center lead to and form an inner courtyard; this lesson is translated into the structure as the voids -- formed by the circulation -- create five buildings extruded with three distinctive programs. Its 7200 square foot site is occupied in its entirety to serve as a center for culture for the entirety of the Charlottesville community; temporary and permanent exhibits, a coworking space, maker space, and urban gardens serve as one entity to inform one another to greater serve the cultural center.

Upon arrival, visitors will first see a gentle grade of four buildings raising to a single, unified height with a back piece raising to the heights of the downtown mall. Walls cutting into the ground and sky invite the user down to a hidden courtyard, out of sight from the street’s onlookers. Upon entering to an ADA accessible ramp, the paths creating the courtyard extrude down to form the walls of the exhibit, with apertures in place to create connections between the exhibits. With triangular formations and natural rises in heights, the Other Market Street Park fits in with the existing conditions to form a cohesive dialogue with the preconditions of the site.

“Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.� .

Three Experimental Houses

Based on the same logic taking on unique forms, three houses were formed around the practice of a minimalistic and simple life. Designed for the single person, each house engages the landscape and skyscape in unique ways with nature (solar, topogrpahy, and lanscape) being a guide for their forms. The first house, the Surveyor House, is based on the logics of Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large Volumes, working as a single entity to become one horizontal home with three good rooms. Oriented based on lighting conditions, each room creates unique spaces that have the possibility to facilitate a certain type of program. These three volumes arrange themselves softly and gently on the land, allowing visitors to slips between the volumes.

The second house, the Lunatic House, continues this logic by arranging three volumes vertically, allowing visitors to ascend to private and public heights with a constant respect towards nature. The last house, the Nomad House, takes these ideas of scale to an extreme, introducing Extra Small and Extra Large volumes. By spreading out houses across the country in one logical path, 105 repetitive houses pepper the continental United States. Formed for a runner (the horizontal form), the biker (the vertical form), and the driver (the anti-diagonal void), spaces are created to reject the position of their daily task. By drastically separating these forms, the space between the house becomes as important as the house itself, allowing a 2500 ftÂł room to occupy an entire country.

Existing Building Studies

Through the study of existing buildings, lessons learned in both spatial uses and computer drafting lead to a understanding of the space in a new way. 3018 Floyd Avenue, a row house in the Museum District of Richmond, Virginia was examined as a dwelling unit for three people and a dog, Sadie. An axonometric drawing accompanied by a plan and section are used as devices to examine the use of spaces in two regions of the house -- the front of the house and the first floor. A further examination to how the house works in a system of similar houses reveals how the houses are repeated in plan but greatly varies in facade. The elevations of the downtown mall in Charlottesville, Virginia examined the distribution of different commercial entities along a urban strip. The heights and vernacular were later used to influence design moves in later projects.

University Hall at the Univeristy of Virginia, examined in its final years before being demolished, was modeled in Rhino 6 and rendered using V-Ray. Written about by UVAToday and the School of Architecture in further detail, the works were produced as a way to shape a new era for the project – one of a digital reality. The focus of the project was significantly influenced by the interior as its details carried much of the spirit of the building during its consturction and early life. Using the original blueprints and some photos of the building taken during a site visit, a computer model of the arena in University Hall was formed by recreating three dimensional geometries of the space (down to the seat number). After the model’s construction, V-Ray was used to understand the material and lighting components of the space.
