STRUCTURE

LATERAL S UPPORT

Cluster house is a building construction system that uses prefabricated structures to build as an ensemble home A community cluster houses can start their home with a simple kit of parts made out of light gauge steel structure frame or panels. An essential cluster home has a highly compact core, that provides means of flows, services and organizations. Modular spaces can be later added as needed, such as living/ dining room, studio/bedroom/guest room on the chassis of the house using the same parts.

This is a daylighting case study exercise. The chapel of St. Lawrence was designed by Finnish firm Avanto Architects, located in Vantaa, Finland. The 60 degree latitude and Eurasia N continent’s coastal zone give the building a unique site context and material restriction. The nature of illumination of the earth creates divergent summer and winter daylighting experiences, from sunrise to sunset.

Site Analysis

Ellicott City in Maryland is a historic mill town with dynamic topography. Topographical challenges lead to fragmented juxtaposed development and flooding hazard, making the area less likely to be formally urbanized. The proposed arboretum acts as a knot that weaves two different urban fabrics together. In addition to being a public place for the residents, the arboretum acts as a sponge to help mitigate runoff and flash floods. The arboretum boundary is designed carefully to align with the critical steep slope and seasonal water channels. Ultimately, the arboretum acts as a canopy to nurse the preserved forest coverage, stabilize the fragile landscape, and create a series of small public spaces connecting the old and new urban fabric of the town.

This group project created a design for a vacant lot, currently under zone code “Public Business”, next to Frederick Municipal Airport in the East Frederick neighborhood. Through a series of GIS analyses, we concluded that the riverfront-airport area used to be for agriculture land use, but lacked urban fabric to connect to the existing Frederick downtown area. The design proposed fully utilizes the agricultural tradition and benefits of close proximity to major transit infrastructure. We created a new kind of urban space by working with greenhouse modules, water channels, rain gardens and community gardens. The anchor industry and food-related sites ultimately will be transformed to be a gourmet food market: an innovative new attraction of East Frederick.

The design focuses on linking the connection between the two communities through urban agriculture. The building acts as the beacon for the communities and is lifted by the berms that emerge from the landscape. The Grass Root means to appreciate the power of earth and land and therefore this proposal provides nourishment to the plants and a healthy lifestyle to the residences. Together, everyone grows their food and are able to harvest it to bring back into the building to be able to cook and serve the food. Therefore, the program needs were to educate residences about having a healthy lifestyle by using the urban farm to grow, harvest and cook locally. Ultimately this creates a sustainable food chain. Together the architecture and landscape are working together to stimulate a sustainable future farming environment.

PATCH

COLLAGE The urban design practice is based on Colin Roweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Collage City theory, where two kinds of urban design principles from different periods of time can interact and create a juxtaposition of urban fabric. Here the patched area was redesigned based on Renaissance urban design principles, that is, a primary street with a uniformed street façade connecting two-end public spaces together as the Gestalt of the city.

This individual design project is an exploration of classical architectural language and its influences on the quality of public spaces and architectural experience from outside to inside. The building is a combination of civic center and chamber music hall that fits in a trapezoidal site along a diagonal primary street with gridiron neighborhood streets. The faรงade and architectural elements are designed to echo classical Renaissance and Baroque architecture using a Corinthian column order. The core of this design project is to craft the grand promenade sequence; that is, primary faรงade-lobby-auditorium. Arch 406, Fall 2014 Prof. Steven Hurtt Portfolio_2017 copy_issuu.indd 31
