The project is a portable bathroom with toilet and shower for disaster relief victims, that can accomodate able bodied, as well as handicapped people. My concept developed from having a continuous/shared skin incorporated into the toilet and shower space; with the skin specificaly complimenting each program. The shower is located a further distance from the entrance because the program is a more private activity. Lastly, the path space is created by ramps that fold down and are hung by tension cables from beams.

Performance Based Design /// Site Analysis

ll

Located on the edge of the Adige River in Verona, Italy lies Piazza Bra Molianari, our site. In the design of this outdoor performance space, piazza renovation, and acting school, there are many nearby points of interest to draw from in historic Verona. The Corso or main street of the Roman Grid terminates into the piazza with St. Anastasia, one of the city’s oldest churches, lying on this axis. In addition to that, Teatro Romano, the first Roman theater in Verona, lies across the river with a view from the edge of the piazza.

Regulating Spaces

With the piazza being a much larger space than the performance area, we knew that we needed to use one of these historical points Te Ro at of interest in order to to define the ma ro spaces of the piazza, and then from no there the stage area would be developed. We decided that the two most important zones in Piazza Bra Molianari were the area that faced the Teatro Romano, and the area right behind St. Anastasia. To create a grid for the site, we used the perpendicular lines from the view of Perpendicular View to the Theater, and Roman Theater Area parallel lines from the Corso, establishing two different zones. The middle zone was Transition Area deteremined as the transition zone by arraying lines in a rotated St. Anastasia/Corso pattern from the Theater Projected Area (zone 1) to the area behind St. Anastasia (zone 3). This ia as formed zone 2. t s . St

Project Summary

35

The criteria for this project was to locate and choose a site in the city of Gioiosa Marea, Sicily, that could accomodate an outdoor performance space. Our chosen site is parallel to the street via Umberto, one of the main streets in the city, and is actually the rooftop to a small museum that is below the street level. The site faces the street and a row of buildings that are a mix of residential units and small shops. The topography drastically drops off behind the site into a park, allowing for the backdrop of the rooftops and the ocean in the distance.


PROBLEM diagnosis /// Crisis Distractions From Street

site

Problem Diagnosis

Since the location of the site is parallel to the main street, the amount of traffic flow on this street becomes the problem that must be solved in order to facilitate a performance space amidst this populated area. The problem that is created is one of visual and auditory distraction, and must be addressed in order to incorporate a performance at any given time.

Proposal

Our prosal for the site was to get the performance further away from the street, and to create a buffer in between the street and the site. We cantilevered the platform of the site out into the park to get it away from the busy street using regulated lines already created by the site. Secondly, we developed a louver system that would be open when performances were not going on, and closed when performances were taking place; we also incorporated the louvers into the cantilevered platforms (that would open and close) to allow sun light through to the greenery below, as well create path space for the platforms while they were in use.
