Material Calisthenics

[A material study to create a self-supporting skin]

1


2

Using bristol paper, sheet acrylic, and aluminum, a self-supporting skin is created using systems of repetition folding strips vertically and horizontally to form a quilted pattern. The skin is not only self supporting, but is also extremely flexible in all directions. The entire structure is held together by tight folds and no other attachments or glue.

The extreme topography of this site calls for an extreme design that blends into the landscape and does not disrupt the natural drainage. The color is derivative from the sprinkling of deciduous trees in the area that turn a muddled yellow during the fall. Being only 600 square feet, the open plan still allows for privacy in a lowered section screened by triangulated walls.

uffizi gallery exit

[a transition from the gallery back to the city]

11


uscita [exit]

12

This exit, although of minimal program, allows museum patrons to reflect on the historic Italian art of the Uffizi Gallery before entering back into the bustle of modern Florence. Exiting through four doors at the end of the gallery, patrons descent different paths that reunite and separate at different levels eventually reaching the ground floor of the piazza. Parallel to the ramp is a linear cafe that mimics the long corridors of the Uffizi itself. Halfway through this long passageway, the closed building ends, but the roof continues to provide shade for more public seating. The ramp looks down upon a slightly sunken piazza that provides a more comfortable, secluded gathering space separated from the street level traffic and is also connected to the cafe.

salton city sustainable city plan

[a net-zero plan for the living building challenge competition]

21


Salton City has always been an area of rich biodiversity, but in recent years, the area has become a wasteland of abandoned buildings and dead fish due to agriculture runoff and a high saline water content of 25% more than the ocean. The state of the water due to the lack of an outlet, massacres the fish population. This city plan proposes to reinvigorate the Salton Sea area through the growth of recreation, agriculture, and industry while preserving the ecology of the area. These problems could actually help sustain the city in the long-run. This new plan will bring more people into the city in different stages allowing for a large growth in future years similar to the boom of Palm Desert not far away. The plan proposes large filtration areas for the production of biodiesel from algae to help fuel the city and cleanse the water. The city will become more tourist-friendly, building the beach front in an enclosed ring that allows swimmers protection and clean water. The ring itself is part of the city’s transportation, having 3 different nodes representing each aspect of the new city: ecology, economy, and recreation. The entire plan is set up for minimal building in beginning, and larger expansion as more and more people come to live and visit here.

GPS technology determined the coral locations below and located a safe area away from the coral to drop anchor. A small motorboat can bring divers to their location if it is far away from the main boat

Energy generated from the PV panels on top of the boat and the two wind turbines underneath the pontoon wings

Drains on the first deck collect rainwater to be used in the bathroom below

Wall lift brings in generous natural lighting and ventilation for the workday

The engine runs on the harvested energy and has a backup bio-diesel engine

Naturally harvested energy is stored in large batteries for night-time need and the travel back

Blackwater and waste is kept in a separate chamber until it can be brought back to shore

biomimicry at its best


[water] Rain catchment and fog harvesting via a perforated mesh skin collects natural water to be used throughout the building in its original state for non-potable uses. Water cycles through the building being used over and over again until it reaches a black water stage where it goes to the onsite living system which treats the water and pumps it back into the building for use.

[energy] The vertical nature of this building allows for the greatest access to sunlight year-round even while being surrounded by 130’ redwood trees. The energy generated is processed and stored on-site to be utilized throughout the building. The solar panels are located on the southern-facing facade of the two towers and on the roof, while still allowing for natural light to flood the interior spaces without casting glare.

4 sq ft of fog mesh can produce up to a gallon of water per day. Fog is about 40% of the water intake of redwood trees.

Total PV on the building: Approx 8,200 sq ft.

Total fog mesh covering the building: Approx 27,150 sq ft 27,168 sq ft/4 sq ft = up to 6,792 gallons of water harvested per day
