The Medialab HTX is a project in Downtown Houston focused on the development and innovation of media in the 21st century. Our goal was to enable the building as a device for the community to transform the continuum of information into new means of media. Nell and I collaborated in all aspects of design. We divided and conquered by splitting equally our graphics, technical drawings, models, and renderings. By giving each other feedback throughout the semester, we had one of the best projects in our class.

Our approach for a structural system was based not only on our main concept of continuity, but also on the functionality of the system. After considering a pre-cast, in-situ and waffle concrete option, we went with the waffle slab in order to accomodate the system requirements and suspended ceiling design. Our structural system is based on a 30’x30’ column grid that fits with our 10’ waffle modules.

The MediaLab HTX organizes the building systems into two halves. The systems that are shared are located in the underground mechanical room that is located at the center of the building. The chillers, boilers, and AHU systems are connected to the core chases in the middle of each half. These chases run up to the level of each half, providing cooling and heating on each level.

The museum houses 12 curated pieces from different collections by artist Robert Rauscheneberg. As a team, our goal was to interpret the different emotional stages undergone by the artist to become part of the building’s character. My contribution to the project was the curation of the art pieces, the building’s technical drawings, its form rationale, the vertical circulation to evoke Raushcenberg’s life, and the final presentation boards.
