Project 1

Wall House I: Case Study The case study involved looking at 21st century houses and diagraming the unique aspects of the specific house. Wall House I (architect John Hejduk) was unique in the way the wall manipulated movement and views to the outside world.

Below: Diagram of Views Medium: Graphite on trace

Shows that the surrounding landscape is seen from every part of the living space, either directly or indirectly as reflections on the wall.

Above: Circulation Diagram Medium: Photoshop

Shows the circulation pattern of one floor of the house. The darker the space, the more likely it is to be walked on as a result of activities and furniture.

Above: Movement Diagrams Medium: Graphite on trace

Show that the two walls in the design are vital to the understanding of the movement within the house. One only goes through the main wall if they desire to enter the living space.

Housing + Film School Analysis of Site in Bigger Context: West Oakland The first step of the design was to look at the site in a bigger context. The Analysis was taken of a portion of West Oakland in which two different city grids met.

The design of the housing complex was done through variation. 5 different modules were created and then used as pieces to be arranged in an attempt to form the 5 floor plans of the houses. 1 house plan was then chosen to be the focus of the project. A

At the new World of Ecology exhibit at the California Science Center, visitors experience firs-hand the interconectedness of the natural world, through the integration of live animals, hands-on exhibit, and media. The 190,000 square-foot addition to the existing museum contains exhibit spaces organized as series of complex ecological enviroments -- including a 20,000 square-foot rainforest, a 2,500 square-foot desert zone, and an 180,000 gallon kelp forest-- that each teach a different ecological principle. A joint venture with ZGF Architects, the addition also includes two floors of administrative offices, and upgraded infrastructure for the entire museum complex. The Center embodies an ecological approach to architecture, revealing many of the systems used to operate the building and sustain the exhibits, to the 1.4 million annual visiotors.
