Soft Stitch

Emma Manguy

Thesis Spring 2019 Kristy Balliet and Neil Denari Tailoring is the art of designing, fitting, fabricating and finishing garments. The quality of the garment is defined by how well a garment fits to the individual body. Stitches and seams create both aesthetic and tectonics that help accentuate the individual body. A well designed garment helps reshape the image of the individual and how they see perceive themselves and how they move through the world; there is power and confidence in a well-tailored piece. This art museum has different typologies of stitching that defines the program; divisions of space through boundaries of sewing. The program is a Contemporary Art Museum in Adelaide, Australia, a suburban town that needs a revitalization to turn it into a first tier city. On one side there is a tight urban fabric and on the other side are flowing botanical gardens. This proposal sews itself onto the site in order to integrate itself into its surrounding context. With five different techniques of stitching, a composition is assembled were public spaces are emphasized by rupturing scale, creating pockets of layered space offering an augmented spatial narrative.

Programmatic Joinery 5A Studio Fall 2018, Ming Fung Collaboration with Yi Ning Lui Our project is called programmatic joinery; we use this metaphor of joinery to represent the exchange of ideas within a school. A joint is defined as something that is common to two or more involving a united activity. We began our project by doing spatial studies of wood joints, through the acts of hinging, meandering and keys. Although the joints express seamless boundaries from the exterior giving the contradictory impression that the project is a whole, in reality the interior is composed of interlocking parts. The programmatic strategies of wood joinery offer new ways of interactive exchange within the context of learning and education. For our formal studies, we drew inspiration from pre-Colombian jewelry and specifically the Tairona symbols that adorn them. The distinctive gold work is an ancient tradition from Colombia, where the tribes wore animal creature pendants as a form of worship. Implementing spatial studies of wood joinery and formal studies of pre-Colombian jewelry, in our Performing Arts school located in Bogota, Colombia we created a unique hybrid program that encourages cross-disciplinary interaction between the disciplines of dance, music and visual arts. In terms of tectonics the skin is derived from the brushed unfinished gold leaf texture. The various components in our building are given different materials to help distinguish them. Transparency is defined based on program needs were skylights and glass walk ways create feature moments of our public building. In Conclusion, the school we have designed is a metaphor for collaborative learning many joints to create one whole.

Berkeley Museum of Art 3B Studio Spring 2017, Jenny Wu Collaboration with Randall Zaragoza Emerging figures, producing organization and hierarchy contribute to; part to whole relationships both formally and organizationally within the library constraints and requirements. The initial exercise begins by designing primitive volumes based of scale less lofted volumes derived from lines from space. Aggregating and Boolean union and/or difference multiple self-similar volumes and setting up two different relationships from each volume such as interlocking, nesting, distributed, centralized and stacked. Furthering the implications of the volumetric figures a cropping box was strategically placed on the scheme based on the bounding box of the site. The linearity of our figures imposes the directionality of North to South. The site grounds are manipulated with the reflection of the figures, producing pedestrian flow. The interior articulation is produced from the affecting geometry of the emerging figures produced in the exterior. In addition, to the conventional structural grid, differing from the window slits. In section, the affecting figures suggest private program versus non-affecting exterior figures suggest public program, contributing to solid versus void program spaces. When studied through plan view the program spaces are viewed as open spaces with no barriers. The building is divided into two parts with an atrium in the middle section. Natural ventilation is provided through the use of skin perforation allowing the building to easily bring cool air flow and hot air out into the void space allowing it to stay at thermal comfort. The seams engraved in the exterior produce windows or openings in which they break the linearity of the building. In addition, the window slits produce diffused natural lighting contributing to the ecological lighting system.

Berkeley Museum of Art 4A Design Development Fall 2017, Scott Uriu & Pavel Getov Collaboration with Sarah Caracamo Further developing the Berkeley Museum of art, through the investigation of issues related to the implementation of design: technology, the use of materials, systems integration, and the archetypal strategies of force, order and character. Rethinking how we can envision and communicate design in innovative ways which exceed the design object itself. In addition, with reviewing basic and advanced construction methods, analysis of building codes, the design of structural and mechanical types, the development of building materials and the integration of building components and systems.

Boyle Heights Duplex Housing 4A Studio Fall 2017, Tom Wiscombe

The Scottish Parliament Enric Miralles The windows on the West side of the building is an important element that makes this building special such as utilizing and manipulating material, scale, and form. The scale and form of the windows on the West Elevation are estranged from the façade questioning flatness and depth while creating shadow. The exterior of the window provokes depth to the façade, while the interior function is a seated corner desk. The material of the window and the intricate tectonic offset unifies the depth of the window, by mixing natural wood, aluminum and glass. Transformation of Massing figure The Scottish parliament window was skewed and transformed through the use of scale in height and width, rotation, and manipulating planer surfaces to curved surfaces. Rotation was compared and contrasted through Boyle Heights pitched roof rotation, the rotation goes from smallest to largest on the rotated roof surface. Scale is emphasized through use of width and height, the height of the massing figure emphasizing on the rotation of the roof.

With the manipulation and estrangement of material, scale, and form studied from the Scottish Parliament. Comparing and contrasting it with the context of Boyle Heights, finding itself the center of simple rooflines and symmetrical windows. With hidden interior walls brought up by human necessities made out of impromptu bath curtains. 1890 sqft

Questioning, the rotation of the roofline,10’the height per floor as well as the maximum height restrictions. While the exterior provokes in total six pitched roof unit homes, the interior is split into only three units, boundaries derived from tectonic shifts manipulated from the exterior. In addition the interior questions the horizontal traditional layout, were moving throughout spaces vertically is essential.

In addition, with sampling and manipulating height, area and roof rotation. Using and manipulating common building materials and common hispanic colors such as in the following context. Materials such as porcelain tile found in Marachi plaza, standard brick in La Monarca Bakery, and blue staggered shingles in a standard home next to the site. Texture mapping is used as a camouflage mechanism used to blend in with the area. Possible defense mechanisms to stop riots, protests, against the neighborhood due to gentrification.
