SKYSCRAPER DESIGN instructors malik benjamin, shahin vassigh


Skyscrapers historically have been a status symbol used by new cities to display their access to wealth and advanced technology. While most of the supertall buildings constructed in the past decade have been in cities in Asia and the UAE, old cities like London and New York have remained active participants in this conversation. Over the next few years, at least four 1,000-footplus skyscrapers are set to rise along (or adjacent to) West 57th Street in New York. Meanwhile the most recently constructed Parisian skyscraper is the 607 ft Tour T1 office building in La Defense - an area that is technically not in Paris.


TRUSS TOWER JOHN BLEEKER, STEPHANIE COLON

Inspired by the geometry of the Louvre and structure of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Truss Tower adopted its concept by piercing an extruded perfect square with a triangular truss system. By analyzing the site, the angled axes for favorable views were obtained creating pyramid components which interrupt the orthagonal environment and consume the building in plan and section. As the square opens, it transforms into a more organic crystalline form stabalized by its pure core, allowing for isolated communal sky gardens and sky lounges.


AMITE TOWER BOBBI WALKER, MERYL MATTHEW

Architecture

as

conflict

resolution:

We designed our tower to mediate the visible connection between the Eiffel Tower and Tour Montparnasse. The site is situation on an axis directly between the two. We likened the two styles to a ballerina (Eiffel) and a businessman (montparnasse) and designed our tower as a middle ground; a way to resolve the visual conflict.


SKY_PARIS CLAUDIA FERNANDEZ, ZOE RUSSIAN MORENO

The Sky_PARIS site considers the public needs of the city by providing markets, restaurants and pavilions. These public areas can be harnessed throughout the year to become a celebration of culture. The tower pays tribute to the most important landmark in Paris, the Eiffel Tower. By establishing a relationship between the two, while also having its own personality within the city. The double glass facade employed in the design reacts to the different seasons, while allowing residents to control the way the spaces function.

BUILDING MODERN EUROPE: FRANCE AND ITALY, 1850 - PRESENT instructor david rifkind


This seminar uses close analysis of case studies to examine the interrelationships between rapid technological innovation, changing social pa terns, and conflicting political movements in the development of modern architecture in Western Europe. We will combine field visits to sites in France and Italy with selected readings, lectures and group discussions to understand modern architecture in France and Italy as both reflection and instigator of the major changes in European society between 1850 and the present.


CENTRE POMPIDOU JOHN BLEEKER, MIGUEL PIO

The design of Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers exemplified constructivism and was a high-tech modern cultural center structured with a system gerberettes and trusses. Their concept was portraying the museum itself as movement and exposing all of the infrastructure of the building. The skeleton itself engulfs the building from its exterior, showing all of the different mechanical and structure systems not only so that they could be understood but also to maximize the interior space without interruptions.


CASA RUSTICI ADAM BIERMAN, PAULA MONTEALEGRE

The first of the apartment blocks built in Milan by Terragni is basically a modern adaptation of the traditional Italian courtyard palazzo building, but without the disadvantage of a small, poorly lighted cortile. It is made up of two paralell slabs connected by transparent balconies that maintain the surface continuity of the facade on the street while permitting light to enter the large, open courtyard.


PAVILION SUISSE MATHIEU TRONEL, TARA MAZLOOMI

The Swiss Pavilion, or Pavillon Suisse, employed the architect’s five points of architecture, building on them throughout the design. Le Corbusier manages to hold onto his free facade and open plan. Several moments in the project reveal a transparent skin with the structural support standing behind it, always maintaining the continuity of the elevations.


VILLA SAVOYE CLAUDIA FERNANDEZ

A manifesto of Le Corbusier’s “five points” of new architecture, the villa is representative of the bases of modern architecture, and is one of the most easily recognizable and renowned examples of the International style. Freely-designed facades, serving only as a skin of the wall and windows and unconstrained by load-bearing considerations.


WINDOWS, DOORS, STAIRS AND RAMPS instructor nikolaj nedev


Since the advent of steel and reinforced concrete the façade of the building has become independent of structure. Once the skin has been freed from its armature it could just as well hang like a curtain, or clothing. The course will trace the historical evolution of the free façade, but will concentrate on ‘punched’ openings, such as windows and doors and their tectonic as well as symbolic aspects. In addition as part of the Promenade Architecturale - the course will examine stairs and ramps in detail. Current building codes are only concerned with life safety issues and set aside architectonic resolutions. As a result circulation is in many cases relegated solely to serve its purpose as egress. We will study building codes as they apply to stairs and ramps and will integrate these -requirements while evaluating appropriate design solutions. The course load will be heavily focused on the work of Le Corbusier, but it will also examine projects by Lewerentz, Moneo, Siza, Koolhaas among others. The class will consist of several readings, and a conceptual diagram/model of a canonical building. Students will study projects on site in Paris, Lyon, Milan and Como during the trip to France and Italy, and will prepare conceptual diagrams based on research conducted in the field and in published sources.


RONCHAMP ROOF STRUCTURE ADAM BIERMAN, MIGUEL PIO

The most striking part of Ronchamp is the curved roof that peels up towards the heavens. The curving roof appears to float above the building as it is supported by embedded columns in the walls, which creates a 10 cm gap between the roof and the walls, which allow for a sliver of clerestory light. The roof is actually the only glimpse of mechanized influence in the overall design of Ronchamp; the roof’s curvature mimics the curves of an airplane wing. It’s aerodynamic in design and in all of its massive and heavy qualities it still appears weightless.


LA TOURETTE ENTRY SEQUENCE MATHIEU TRONEL, AILEEN ZEIGEN

The one request to the architect by Father Marie-Alain Couturier was that he “create a silent dwelling for one hundred bodies and one hundred hearts.� Every one of the hundred cells features an outwardfacing balcony, with communal areas underneath and the cloister running around the roof. The structural form of the building is reinforced concrete, with undulating glass surfaces located on three of the four exterior faces. Built as a Chapel, residence and place of learning for Dominican friars, the monastery groups around a central courtyard a U-shaped mass, and the court is closed off by the chapel at the end.


LA TOURETTE SECTION JOHN BLEEKER, STEPHANIE COLON

The more obvious of these in this specific project are the pilotis, or loadbearing columns, which line the inside walls and open the facade to long strip windows. The classic grass rooftops create an architectural promenade, relating back to the Villa Savoye, although the context of the convent is very different than of the residence. The uneven spacing of the vertical concrete mullions, or ondulatoires, and the similar divisions and uneven spacing of the horizontal components between them were fashioned according to theModular system of proportions of Le Corbusier.
