PART II DEGREE WORK UNIVERSITY OF WESTMINSTER


RIGHT TO THE STREET, HAVANA 5TH YEAR DESIGN PROJECT After visiting Havana, it became immediately apparent how important the streetscene is for local residents, both socially and economically. Although allowing for a constant hub of activity, after private ownership of houses became legal in 2009 the street itself became contested due to the unequal access for residents. Houses with immediate access to the street are more desirable, as they allow for businesses to be developed at street level. Residents situated in the ‘core’ of the urban blocks are restricted in their access to the street, which creates a negative hierarchy. Using the ‘Green Revolution’ as a fundamental ideology in recent Cuban history, as well as the Microbrigada movement of 1970, I extended the streets vertically, in an effort to allow equal access to evenly distributed resources. The points of insertion for this elevated streetscape rely on the existing buildings, consolidating their disintegrated structure and allowing for the expression of the urban movement above, which also emphasises the vision of protection of open space within the city. This elevated open landscape becomes expressed through a number of conditions relating to their location within the city and surrounding context, evolving and growing throughout time, in response to the city’s demand. The varying scale, location and structure ranges from small balcony and window extensions, to extended rooftops and elevated courtyards, all forming the elevated open landscape. 4

W2E PLANT, NEWPORT 4TH YEAR DESIGN PROJECT The brief for my final year project was to create a masterplan for the city of Newport, South Wales, and then choose a site with the intention of designing a civic building which produces something. I designed a waste-to-energy plant for the city, which uses the process of anaerobic digestion to create heat and electricity from discarded food. The purpose of my programme is to represent a closed-loop system, in terms of food waste from residents being processed to create a renewable energy source, as well as a natural soil conditioner (digestate), which in turn is used on the allotments to grow produce. I aimed to tackle a number of Newport’s issues in an environmentally, socially viable way, whilst creating a hub of economic activity in an area of Newport which appears to be segregated from the heart of the city. Furthermore, I aim to tackle wider problems of climate change and high fossil fuel consumption by introducing a relatively new and undervalued system of generating energy.

HAND DRAWN FINAL SITE MASTERPLAN 1:500


W2E BUILDING DESIGN I proposed to build a waste-to-energy plant (w2e), which would convert post-consumer food waste into heat and electricity through a process called anaerobic digestion. This energy centre would have the capacity to recycle roughly 18,000 tonnes of waste per year from 68,000 households across Newport. The facility would provide heat to the new Sennybridge development, as well as feed electricity back into the National Grid. Post-consumer food waste will be collected by trucks from around Newport, and delivered into the building. Here, it is mixed and macerated, and then sent to the anaerobic digestion tanks, which will be integrated among the allotments on the site. Biogas is produced and then sent back to the plant, where combined heat and power (CHP) engines convert it into energy. A byproduct of the anaerobic digestion process is digestate, a natural soil conditioner, which will be both taken off site for use on farmland, as well as being used on the allotments by residents. Produce grown on the allotments can then be sold in the farm shop to visitors or residents, creating a closed-loop system of waste-in/food-out.

16


INITIAL SKETCHES I believe the process of converting waste to energy has to be exhibited to the public in order for people to understand the necessity of renewable energy generation. Therefore, in the same way as I have made my digester tanks stand out by integrating them amongst the allotments, I wanted to partially invite passers by into my building without them physically entering the plant itself. After looking at a number of material options for my facade, I ended up choosing polycarbonate, as not only is it extremely efficient in terms of maintaining heat, but it is also semi-translucent, exposing the internal elements of the waste process to the public, in an attempt to persuade them to investigate my building further. After looking at the DHC plant in Zaragoza, I investigated adding LED lighting into the facade in order to project statistics relevant to the process onto the sides of my building at night. This would further my overall vision of creating a ‘sustainable beacon’, by attracting visitors to the site and educating on the benefits of waste-to-energy plants.

TECHNICAL STRUCTURE Initially, I looked to create a transition between the housing development to the East, and the industrial park to the West of the Old Town Dock site, by sinking the plant into the ground. However, upon further consideration I felt this would detract from the overall vision of educating the public about the benefits of the waste-to-energy process, and therefore decided to design my building as a ‘sustainable beacon’. Polycarbonate cladding panels are used to allow natural light into the facility whilst retaining a huge amount of heat, adding to the efficiency of the building. I integrated a steel truss system into the relatively formulaic steel structure in order to support my saw-tooth roof. These 1.5 metre tall trusses will have an exterior clad of polycarbonate in order to allow Northern light into my facility, which will also allow for mechanical ventilation. The steel frame itself is exposed to the public, in an attempt to maintain an aspect of the industrial past of the site, whilst trying not to deter people from visiting my building. The building is heated via an underfloor heating system, using steam generated from the waste-toenergy process. Furthermore, I have used solar PV panels on the roof of my plant to ensure the facility is as sustainable as possible.

S E N TŌ BATH HOUSE 3RD YEAR DESIGN PROJECT My final 3rd year project was to understand and interpret the art of bathing, and ultimately design a bath house in the centre of Bristol, which would be part of a larger masterplan incorporating 3 design projects throughout the year. I focused on creating a Japanese bath house, or Sentō, utilising traditional bathing methods and materials. The bathing technique is known as ‘onsen therapy’ - a comprehensive bathing treatment conducted to maintain health, normalise dysfunctions and prevent illness. Each bath in the onsen has a different mineral composition. This bath house uses a number of different materials such as granite and light timber to give a serene atmosphere. Soft lighting removes the outside world in order to transform the mind and body and the tranquil spaces allow for an unexplored sense of relaxation.

PARK STREET

PARK STREET PLATFORMS 3RD YEAR DESIGN PROJECT Park Street’s economic activity (in terms of retail) has declined in recent years due to the development of Cabot Circus and Broadmead. By pedestrianising Park Street, I demonstrated to Bristol Council that the road is still an extremely important asset to the city The Park Street Platforms offer a series of tranquil terraces which give pedestrians a chance to stop and reflect on their surroundings. The current steep hill is a deterrent for anyone looking to spend time admiring the views down College Green or even browse the shops. My design allows people to pause and embrace the environment as well as the historic values of the street.

THE SHIRES 2ND YEAR DESIGN PROJECT The purpose of this project was to envisage the world in 40 years time, and develop a housing development for a site in Shirehampton, Avonmouth. With the rapid increase in world population, along with the shortage of affordable housing, I felt by 2055, even Western civilizations such as the UK will be faced with the issue of slum developments. I believe urban sprawl will dictate the way land will be used in terms of fitting as many dwellings into a site as possible. Furthermore, the depletion of non-renewable energy sources will create new problems for the world, as well as the threats of climate change. Therefore, I looked to combat these challenges by providing the maximum amount of dwellings whilst ensuring the quality of life for residents was kept at a high standard. I presented a design solution which would be both aesthetically pleasing and would retain the principles of low-cost housing. Rather than flooding the site with buildings, I chose to retain some green space and create allotments, orchard, bee hives and space for chickens on the Western side of the site to allow the residents to ‘grow their own’. Also I kept a green space in the foreground of the main development, which would be an attractive space for the residents to meet and where children can play safely. There would be paths threading through the site, some allocated for dog walkers. By introducing a community centre to the site, not only could this be used for the residents of The Shires but potentially generate an income by renting out to the wider community.

COURTLANDS FARM Courtlands Farm is a private residential project for a developer, consisting of 12 houses in Hampshire. I initially worked on the feasibility scheme, developing a layout for the brownfield site which would be attractive for families wishing to live in a micro community. The images shown are stills taken from a video I created in the software Lumion. I had to model the terrain and each individual plant, as well as track the movement of each person, in order to create the video path.

NOSY BE I have been privileged to work on a private, one-off house in Madagascar from early design stages and the project is currently on site. This concrete ‘tiered’ dwelling has proved to be extremely problematic in terms of securing high quality materials, and ensuring the workforce have the expertise in order to facilitate the design on the cliffside. The images shown are taken from a video which I created for the client which helped to secure the contract.

To Whom It May Concern, Re Eliot Ellis Brown I was Eliot’s AP4 (Architecture and Planning) Design Studio Module Leader and one of his design tutors at UWE during 2015/16. This was his fourth and final year of his joint degree where he gained both his RIBA Part 1 and his RTPI qualifications. The yearlong studio set a single design project in Newport, South Wales. The development sites were remarkable as they lie between the very tidal River Usk and the frontier city itself. The generic brief was for an industry with some form of social interaction. At the onset the students were asked to find both an appropriate programme and a suitable site to host their chosen ‘industry’. They began the year by analysing the greater area, the city and possible sites along the Usk and creating an investigation book for the cohort’s use. They then explored possible master plans through a ‘Speed Planning’ workshop which led them to propose their own Master Plan for the greater context. This urban planning has been supported and developed further in a parallel planning module. From that they have chosen an appropriate programme, designed a site diagram to fit their new context and chosen programme, wrote a brief and finally engaged in ‘crafting’ workshops to materialise their particular buildings. Eliot succeeding with all of these tasks. From the master planning he chose to create an anaerobic digestor / recycling plant with exhibition space. This was a clever program choice as it was truly industrial, had the appropriate scale for Newport’s river front and fulfilled the ambitions of the both the city’s and the school’s master plans of compact cities. After a shaky (and we thought too form led) start Eliot found his stride and produced a very eloquent and technically substantiated building. This was expertly modelled, drawn and presented in his exceptional portfolio. The project worked throughout the scales as an urban (and glowing) beacon of sustainability to the 1:1 detailing of a crisp and well considered concrete building. He will make a very good architect and I have no hesitation recommending him for both work in practice and or further study. Yours Faithfully,

John Comparelli, Architect and Senior Lecturer, UWE

To whom it may concern,

For the duration that Eliot has been employed at CZstudio he has worked on project JESOLO LUXURY APARTMENTS & SPA ranging from concept to design options. His weekly tasks varied from sketching ideas, looking for materials to be used and searching references for the implementations of projects. He has been able to apply them independently along with his own creative edge to the design of project. Eliot has motivation and initiative to complete tasks, even working overtime when necessary. He understands the importance of prioritising work and meeting deadlines.
