1ST YEAR STUDIO FALL SEMSTER 2018

MATERIAL INTERPREATIONS OF IMMATERIAL CONCEPTS


“CONFLICTING GRIDS”, FIELD DRAWING, 24” x 24”, 2018

THE CONCEPT ORIGINATED FROM THE IDEA OF THE LINE, AND HOW THE LINE COULD BE INSTRUMENTALIZED TO SPEAK TO HOW CONFLICTING IDEAS OF GRID CAN CREATE A SPATIAL ORGANIZATION THAT REINTERPRETS GRID BY BREAKING ITS ORDER.


PROCESS RENDERING

THE CONCEPT OF CONFLICTING GRIDS WAS THEN INTERPRETED IN THE INTERSECTION OF 4 ROTATING VOLUMES; FROM WHICH PLANES WERE TAKEN AWAY TO SEE THE ESSENCE OF THE SPACE.


GEOMETRY STUDY, 6” x 6” x 6”, PAPER, 2018


GEOMETRY MATERIAL STUDY, 12” x 12” x 12”, GALVANIZED STEEL, 2018

INTIALLY THE CONCEPTION OF GEOMETRIC FORM WITH A MATERIAL LOGIC STILL WAS IGNORED IN PLACE FOR GEOMETRIC ACCURACY. HOWEVER IN EMBRACING THE LIMITATION OF METAL AND ITS ADVANTAGES, THE CONCEPT ADVANCED BEYOND ITS IMMATERIAL CONCEPT.


GEOMETRY MATERIAL STUDY, 12” x 12” x 12”, 16 GAUGE STEEL, 2018


GEOMETRY MATERIAL STUDY, 12” x 12” x 12”, 16 GAUGE STEEL, 2018


OTHER SIGNIFICANT STUDIES; RANGING BETWEEN 6” x 6” x 6” to 12” x 12” x 12”; PAPER, 16 GAUGE & GALVANIZED STEEL;a 2018


FINAL MODEL, 24” x 24” x 24”, 16 GAUGE STEEL, 2018

THROUGH THE ABSTRACTION OF SCALE, THE IDENTITY OF THE CONEPT EXISTS BEYOND JUST ITS GEOMETRIC IMPLICATIONS, BUT IN ITS ORGANIZATIONAL AND ARCHITECTURAL ASPECTS. FROM THE TWO PARALLEL PASSAGES TO ORGANIZATION WITHIN THE 4 SQUARE GRID, THERE IS AN ALLUSION TO AN ARCHITECTURAL IDENTITY.


FINAL INHABITABLE SPACE, 48’ x 48’ x 48’, SCALE 1/2” = 1”, 2018

SUMMER 2019 STEINBERG HART CAMPBELL, CA

EAST ELEVATION, SCALE 1/8” = 1’, 11” x 17”

THE PROJECT PROPOSES A NEW CURTAIN WALL SYSTEM TO THE PREXISTING CAMPBELL LIBRARY TO BRING A NEW CONNECTION BEWTEEN THE ARCHITECTURE OF THE LIBRARY AND ITS SURROUNDING CONTEXT.


a

THE CITY OF CAMPBELL “THE CITY OF TREES” “THE ORCHAND CITY”

APPLICATION TO CURTAIN WALL

SYMBOLIC REPRESENTATION OF THE TREES

GRADIENT FIELD CONDITION

DETAIL ELEVATIONAL VIEW

THE WINDOW FRIT SPEAKS TO THE IDENTITY OF THE CITY OF TREES THAT CAPMBELL IS ACCUSTOMED TO, BY CREATING A CONCEPTUAL CANOPY: A FUNTIONAL SYSTEM TO CREATE LESS DIRECT SUNLIGHT.


BUILDING SECTION, SCALE 1/8” = 1’, 11” x 17”

THE PROJECT ALSO TAKES FROM THE IDENTITY OF THE CITY OF TREES BY DECONSTRUCTING THE ESSENCE OF THE ORCHARD AND ALLOWING THAT TO DEFINE THE INTERIOR BY USING ITS COMPONENTS.


INTERIOR PROTOTYPE RENDERINGS


BUILDING SECTION PERSPECTIVE, SCALE 1/8” = 1’, 11” x 17”

THE CURTAIN WALL NOT ONLY SERVES A PROGRAMITIC WAY TO BRING LIGHT TO THE READER BUT ALSO A WAY TO BLUR THE LINES BETWEEN THE BUILDING AND THE SURROUNDING CONTEXT


EAST ELEVATION, SCALE 1/8” = 1’, 11” x 17”
