OTHER ACTIVITIES

My name is Eglė Jurgaitytė, I am currently based in Bristol. I moved from Lithuania to the UK in 2011 to study at the University of the West of England, from which I graduated BA(Hons) Architecture & Planning in 2017.

// 04.2017-present WH Architects Architectural Assistant

// 09.2016 - 09.2017 Angelina’s Tea and Cake Catering assistant

// 02.2017 - Present African dance

// 04.2016 – 05.2016 Overseas Chinese Association (South West Region) Urban Designer for China Town project (five weeks full-time placement)

// 03.2015 – 09.2015 Your Dentist Ltd Receptionist (full-time)

// 09.2011 – 07.2017 University of the West of England BA (Hons) Architecture and Planning

During my studies I developed a deep understanding of architectural design principals and exercised to apply them in light of contextual, technical and aesthetic considerations. The integrated planning course helped me to gain insight into placemaking and the planning system in the UK. As part of my course, I studied in Spain for one year. My time at the Universidad de Alicante broadened my views on sustainable design and conceptual architecture. Furthermore, I improved my comprehension of urban structures and their relation to ideas of urban theorists such as K. Lynch. During this year I also completed my dissertation which analysed architectural language representation in films through a semiotic point of view. Since graduation I have been working at a local architectural practice. This role has allowed me to apply the knowledge of city planning systems in a practical sense, and highlighted the architectural considerations that are required in preparation for a successful planning application. Furthermore, while working in practice I have expanded my knowledge of construction and detailing. Day-today work also allows me to further improve my skills in architectural representation, mainly utilizing software such as SketchUp, AutoCAD and Adobe Photoshop. Aside from architecture, I am passionate about arts and music. Dance is . I’ve been dancing since childhood, and it has always been an important part of my life.

PLAN NING Currently, the majority of my workload is based at the planning stage. As a result, I have enhanced my practical knowledge of the planning process and its legal aspects. I have also gained experience in the preparation of documents such as Design & Access Statement, Heritage Statement and Section 10 Notice. In this section I present some of the more challenging planning applications that I previously worked on.

URBAN

DES IGN

During my studies I learned about urban infrastructure and environments from a theoretical, economical and societal point of view. Exercising this knowledge in a holistic manner allowed me to work on various scale masterplans and feasibility studies effectively.

URBAN DESIGN

BRISTOL CHINA TOWN, Denmark Street Bristol As part of my course I undertook a five week placement working with the Overseas Chinese Association (OCA) for the South West Region. The aim of the project was to analyse four sites suggested by the client and to provide conceptual Bristol China Town masterplans for the two most suitable options. Denmark Street initially seemed the most attractive site to host this China Town proposal, because of its intimate atmosphere, established ground floor use and central location. At later stages, the site was deemed particularly challenging because of its situation within the College Green Conservation Area. However, the feasibility study has proven Denmark Street’s high potential and remained the client’s preference. With respect to historically sensitive location, the early design ideas were developed in a subtle way. As a result, the final proposal at Denmark Street depicts a modest version of China Town, where Chinese culture interweave with the existing character and history of the place. The proposed masterplan seeks for involvement and celebration of cultures and has qualities of a cultural quarter.

NEWPORT Regeneration Masterplan My proposition for Newport regeneration plan is based on a potential of building a new M4 relief road. This road aims to improve logistics for businesses clustering to the south and to reduce traffic cutting through the central Newport. The proposed masterplan seeks to minimise vehicular inflow from the north by incorporating a park & ride hub and related public transport improvements. As a result, the reduced traffic would allow B4591 road transformation into the City Park - a green corridor that stretches from the park & ride hub towards the historic Newport castle and the city centre. The proposed green area incorporates edible landscape features and recreated natural habitats. The edible landscape concept aims to encourage local participation and to promote a positive way of inhabiting public spaces. New pedestrian and cycle routes strategically interlink with the wider network of existing routes, thus making the city more accessible. The City Park is linked to the riverside walk by a socio-educational public building Farm Lab.

Newport,18th century.

URBAN DESIGN

In essence, the proposal seeks to improve public realm and circulation around the city; to draw public attention on food production potentials in the modern world; and to celebrate historical development of Newport City.

ARCH ITECT

URAL DESIGN

The combination of formal training and work in practice has given me a deep understanding of architectural design principals. While working in practice I familiarised myself with typical challenges and solutions, mainly in regards to residential design in urban environments. I exercise my ability to apply nationally recognized design guidances and standards in projects of various scales. Furthermore, these practical projects have given me a deeper insight into the relationship between an architectural design and its technical approach.

FARM LAB The proposal draws attention on the local and global alienation from food production process. The Farm Lab was designed to accommodate social and educative activities that encourage creative thinking into more sustainable and safer ways of sourcing our foods. The proposed structure incorporates indoor and outdoor growing facilities, labs and workshop space. The ground floor features a gallery space/ conference room and a spacious cafe supplied with foods grown within the building. The created community hub provides opportunities for local initiatives and for collaboration with universities and schools.

I sympathize with passive and sustainable design techniques. Thus, the project presented in this section is a public building design that promotes sustainability and seeks for a balance with nature.

TECH NICAL

COMPREHENSION

While studying I had an opportunity to look into the different construction methods and their adaptability to design. Subsequent work experience has grounded my knowledge in traditional construction methods and enhanced detailing skills. Some examples of technical drawings that I have worked on are presented in this section.

TECHNICAL COMPREHENSION

FARM LAB Technical substantiation

The structural glulam frame consists of a uniform grid that is braced by semi-arch members to the south of the building. The diagram below shows how the six members are interlocked together via a steel cap with integrated hangers and concealed steel plates. Pin joints are introduced where occurring forces require flexibility of the structure.


Polycarbonate panels, used as external skin of the building, give a U-value of 0.82W/m2K and provide 49% light transmission. As a result, interior spaces feature a high level of filtered natural lighting. Additionally, the penetration of sunlight benefits thermally as the heat is absorbed by the concrete floor and then is slowly released during the night, thus naturally maintaining comfortable temperatures in the building. In order to reduce the overall U-value of the walls, a translucent recycled PET insulation is introduced where necessary, sandwiching it between exterior and interior polycarbonate sheets. (Precedent: Meme Meadows Experimental House by Kengo Kuma and Associates; House in Yamasaki by Tato Architects).

The south facade is wrapped in ETFE, which allows sunlight penetration to greenhouse areas and a flexible application on curved structures. The air is delivered to the ETFE pillows via a series of fixed ducts and a final flexible duct into the cushion. The air is dried prior to being blown into the pillow to eliminate ingress of moisture. The system is controlled by an air supply pipe which automatically starts the air machine, which maintains correct pillow pressure and is situated in the first floor greenhouse area. The pattern of the ETFE roof drives rain water to gutters located around the perimeter of the roof. The rainwater gets collected in the water tank located in the basement and is later reused in food growing process.
