Integrated design in Architecture Pavillion design competition
The most beautiful and busiest part of the University Park campus, the North Entrance requires a space, slightly off the fast paced path, to take advantage of the picturesque views, providing a meeting, and contemplative opportunity.
The pavilion directs pedestrian traffic away from the tired routes, encouraging the enjoyment of unnoticed views framed by the structure. Self-interpreted usage of the space indulges the imagination.
Tectonics and Materiallity Plans and Section Discarded oak timber, recycled and reclaimed, brings its strength and history to this repetitive and simple structure. Finished naturally, the structure evolves with weather and time. Simple timber dowling joints allow honest assembly and dis-assembly.

Modular repetition provides vast opportunity for usage and configuration. Multiple assembly is assisted by engraved components. Each piece can be transported individually.
K12IDA Entry for the Pavillion Design competition 2011
Placing the sanctuary at a converging point of many student paths catalyzes social interaction whilst offering some of the most extensive views in the University. Sheltered against the elements by the surrounding evergreens the illuminated structure is visible from both the entrance and the road with seasonal landscape variation from the deciduous ﬂora.
Panorama The Fractural Pavilion provides a scenically enhanced shortcut for students moving between the Architecture and Engineering buildings. Its position near the North Entrance welcomes visitors, enriching their experience of Nottingham campus.

A MINIMUM STACK OF THIRTEEN PALLETS IS REQUIRED TO
CREATE A SUITABLE INTERIOR SPACE. THREE STACKS ARE REQUIRED TO CREATE THE SUITABLE HEIGHT OF A SEAT.
Summary We feel our vision meets all of our objectives regarding the various sites and their speciﬁc needs. The form encompasses the requirement for shelter and as a resting point. The aesthetic quality of both the form and the use of pallets comes about as a result of the juxtaposition between the organic form and the geometric pallets. The pallets are an appropriate building material since they promote sustainability and a sense of pride in renewal. They are also ﬂexible in terms of transportation and constuction.

The central pavilion creates a space of 3m x 3m. This will be a sanctuary within Ecobuild, compiled of smooth walls in contrast to the jagged outside walls representing the chaotic environment around
Site 1 - The pavilion is a message
that sustainability is not just environmentally friendly materials but also clever design. In our society too many things are built for one single function. When that function is no longer needed, they become obsolete. If they were able to adapt they could continue to serve us, rather than contribute to yet another landfill.
Plastic carrier bags are a prime example of one of these designs. Encasing them in cages serves as a reminder to think of the long term
The structure appears to fall into it’s environment. Due to ergonomic considerations this provides seamless seating for many people

The Architectural Design Studios
Our pavilion is located approximately mid-way between the two departments: as such, its purpose of being stop-off point is served well. The site is positioned on a route which is simple and direct. It follows the main roads and main paths, achieving directness and safety. The structure essentially involves a wooden frame which will be covered by (acrylic canvas), and the beams of wood will be joined through means of (steel socket joints). Our initial concept was to incorporate engineering details in our architecture, tying together the department with the new faculty. The structure will constitute three main walls which will overlap each other to form a spiral-like shape: the overlapping of the walls will produce the three openings as a natural consequence. The spiral shape, and thus circularity, alludes to the form of the trees and the nearby roundabout. Furthermore the spiral form evokes a sense of motion, and this evocation of motion is effective in two main ways: it alludes to the idea of mechanisation and consequently the linking of architecture with the engineering department; it also hopes to encourage movement through – the spiral form would aim to induce a notion of gravitation towards the pavilion and consequential transience through and out the other side of the pavilion – notably, this is in association with the notion of the pavilion only intending, in most situations, to be a stop-off point and information hub. The interior of the structure features essentially a hexagonal ﬂoor plan with a central pole which serves a purpose structurally however also aesthetically. Wooden steps of different levels surround the pole: these can be used mostly as seats. For the show, one of the walls is repositioned in between the other two walls, so the steps can then be used as a stage. The connections of the structure make it possible for this adaptation to occur: a hoop at the top of the canvases can rotate around a central spike at the top of the pole. Information and other features which satisfy the function criteria of the pavilion will hang from high tension, invisible, cables which will be linked between the frames – thus once someone is drawn into the centre of the pavilion, one will be able to recognise the purpose of the pavilion by viewing the interior of the walls. The pavilion is easy to transport – the relatively light weight of the canvas can be unattached and then the wooden beams can be unscrewed from the steel joints. The components can then be transported and then reassembled in the opposite way.
Faculty of Engineering Concept Image: “Matter tells space how to curve, and space tells matter how to move.” John Wheeler. The Galaxy’s Milky way is said to be permeated by a uniformed, exhaustive magnetic ﬁeld. It’s helical appearance contains three fundamental elements which consist of its halo, disk (spiral arms) and nucleus. The magnetic ﬁeld of the milky way ﬂows in lieu with the galactic plane, and acts on particles, causing their rotational axes to line up parallel to the ﬁeld, bending particle paths to designated directions and trapping cosmic rays.

The internal spaces within the construct offer a variety of environments to suit various functions. In the ﬁrst location, at Ecobuild, where the pavilion will be used for visitors to sit and relax during their visit to the exhibition, the internal space offers a partially enclosed area to retreat from the activity outside. The central podiums act as seating for those wishing to rest. The walls can also perform as information boards about the surrounding exhibits. Whilst the structure is being utilised as a stage, the more open nature of the structure allows for the audience in front to have clear unobstructed views of the presenter and award winners. The host stands on the central podium to be visible to the spectators. The interior shape helps to project the presenter’s voice towards the crowd. Finally at the ﬁnal location, the interior again acts as a partially enclosed shelter, to protect from the elements, but sight is not detrimentally hindered. The spaces for posters will be used to display student information and serve well as an information point and shelter. The joints on the interior are purposefully exposed to display the engineering qualities and nature of the built environment.

Te c h n i c a l D e t a i l s , M a t e r i a l i t y & C o s t i n g The scheme aims to utilise as few different materials as possible for simpler and quicker construction. The framework for the structure is composed of reclaimed wood, oak beams speciﬁcally. There is a possibility that reclaimed wood could be used for the central podium mainly and new wood for the structure to ensure structural integrity and also as a means to adhere to ﬁnancial restraints. Reclaimed materials are not only more eco-friendly and sustainable, but they also provide a greater sense of character. The outer skin is a PVC canvas which is stretched across the framework to form a semi-translucent layer for shelter but also allowing light to emit through it creating a lighter atmosphere. The joints are formed from steel tubing, welded together to our speciﬁcations. The costing has been evaluated by looking at various suppliers of such materials and workmanship. The green oak beams are available from £15 for 100X100X2400mm beams, and the canvas can be bought for £16.50 for a 1x1.5m sheet from one supplier in particular that we researched. The materials and workmanship for the joints vary from £60 - £100 in relation to the complexity of the joint.

The walls of the structure are aligned vertically to allow space for the hanging of posters and the mounting of ﬂat screen televisions in its respective locations. The seating area is partially covered to provide shade for users, as well as offering natural light and natural ventilation in the space.

Proposed Sites The site was chosen because it is the central access hub for students and staff between the built environment and engineering departments. Shallow hills surrounding the site provide landscape views. The existing trees help to screen the pavilion from some of the noise from passing traffic. Whilst the brief was to create a shelter for passing students, it was apparent after research that students and staff were concerned with getting to their destinations. The pavilion would therefore most likely be used as a temporary rest stop by visitors who are walking through the university park campus for leisure. As part of our proposal and longer term plan the cocoon pavilion will act as the central stage of an amphitheatre for stage events.

Cocoon Concept The road close to the top represents the twig that a cocoon is attached to and explains why the structure is more uniform. This is also where the seating and space promotional material will be located. The central section is the more intimate area and comprises of a double layer of wooden structure with a canopy covering a beautiful central opening. This end is a tapered structure mimicking the end of a cocoon and creates an inviting entrance for those approaching the site from student halls and the department of built environment
Tectonics To create an organic structure we fabricated 1:20 scaled 600mm length units and wove them together to create a flexible cloth which forms is then hardened into a fixed cocoon shape. The 600mm units are at an identifiable human scale which makes the whole structure more relatable.
1. Wood 2. Hex nut 3. Washer 4. Dog tooth washer 5. Threaded steel beam
The wood is sourced from sustainable hardwoods in Scotland alternatively materials for the basic unit could be made from disused wooden pallets. The metal threaded bar, dog toothed washers, and hexagonal nuts are zinc plated steel. A coating of wood varnish will protect the wood from the elements. Shown opposite are structural sections outlining the basic construction for the cocoon. Included also is a CAD render of the structural make up. This was then put into practice on a 1:1 scale using the materials outlined above. The model was successful and indicates a good tectonic joint for the pavilion.

Site The routes between Architecture and Engineering vary in time efficiency, safety and experience. The most popular being the most time efficient which also happens to have a beautiful scenic journey (marked in red on the map). The location of the pavilion is very accessible as it is approximately half way between Architecture and Engineering and is at the crossroads of where students enter the University. The site is sloped making it easily visible from the surrounding areas and also has fantastic views of the landscape. The location allows us to form a physical and figurative connection between these three ‘elements’.
A triangular relation between: Architecture, Engineering, The University.
Seen from a plan-view these points on campus construct a triangle. We designed interweaved cables creating a curved surface connecting two triangular frames to express the organic creativity of Architecture combined with the angular reality of Engineering. The canopy design modules allow for seating which echos the structure above creating a relaxing chill out zone to escape the hustle and bustle of Ecobuild. The main principle of the end site is to have a pavilion that connects the Architecture and Engineering departments. When choosing our site, we realised many people coming from different directions (mainly the North entrance) pass, not only those with the Architecture or Engineering department as a destination. We wanted our pavilion to not only be a mediation point between Architecture and Engineering, but also to include our unintentional visitors. This invitation is emphasized by an expressive main entrance that is used as the stage front for the final year exhibition.
Seating Areas and bins
Elevation 1:50 MATERIALITY PLASTIC BAGS We will be sourcing non bio-degradable single use carrier bags as these will last for the same time as the structure if not longer. The bags will be used in a number of ways, for seating, rubbish disposal and the actual canopy material. The bags will be plaited together to get a long rope and for added strength. We have decided to use plastic bags over rope as we are recycling the resource and they are also much cheaper than the alternative.
The main structure is able to flat pack as each of the individual double triangle modules is able to split apart from each other, enabling for ease of transportation. We also chose materials that were lightweight wherever possible to make transportation less demanding. The platform is built up in lengths of wood that can easily be dismantled and reassembled. A flatscreen can be hung from any of the bamboo supporting structural beems using a ring joint and a television wall fixing to provide information to both Ecobuild customers and university users.
TIMBER We will be using timber for the platform, as it can be recycled and reused from other structures, is very workable and is cheap. Because of its strength under compression, it is suitable to support the main structure.
Centre joint steel plating
BAMBOO Bamboo will be used in the main structure and has been chosen for its renewability, durability, rigidity, versatility and its weight. Bamboo is a very easily replaced material as it is one of the fastest growing plants in the world, it is known to grow up to 100cm in a 24hr period. However, one issue we have had to overcome is the irregularity of the diameter of bamboo, meaning we will have to make adjustments to cater for this. STEEL We chose steel for the connections due to its strength, durability and recyclability. As we only have four different triangles being used throughout the structure then a lot of the connections are going to be the same, meaning it is easier and cheaper to manufacture them.

Integrated Design in Architecture
HDPE We have chosen to use HDPE (high density polyethylene) for the connection between the main structure and the bin as this is much more lightweight than steel connections. HDPE is a recyclable plastic and is fairly easy to mould into the correct jointing shape and so is suitable for this use.

Design The focus of the design is based on a metamorphic structure with a ‘changing skin’ – the ability to change and adapt. These elements developed into a transitional tensile structure, following a faintly amphitheatre-like formation with the structure altering through three states of change. The idea is to create internal spaces entirely different to those assumed from the external form with the external skin remaining the same and the flux being within the internal space of the structure. The structure assumes its first state at Ecobuild. Here it is a shelter, to harbour people, forming an open space that welcomes the public with a separate division of space located at the back of the structure for reflection and retreat. The tensile canopy extends down to the floor with an adjustable separate central skin creating this more sheltered, intimate area as well as a surface for projection of information, videos and light shows. The second state is the projection of the stage for its use at the Architectural show, the elements of the roof structure are mirrored in the formation of the flooring emphasising the projected elements and highlighting the stage. This structure becomes more open when the inner canopy is moved up to follow the lines of the external skin. The final permanent state acts as a point for information collection and rest, a structure that becomes part of a journey and that leads people within. The division of areas used within the first state provides elements of reflection and rest with information projected and printed onto the underside of the canopy. The orientation of the structure is key within the definitive site, with the convergence of points at the roundabout echoed through the entrances within the structure, allowing key routes of vision towards the road and the engineering and architecture departments. The structure is therefore safely accessible from every key approach located near the path and zebra crossing.

Structural Detail of Floor Metal Members - Pole Support System
1 : 20
The timber floor structure is made up of height adjustable modular steps, with ease of transport, production and cost effectiveness considered. Below the floor layer is a framing system, which supports the poles and fixes them in place. This is a metal structure that is braced for strength with diagonals, each section a trough that the poles are folded into when dissembled, making transportability of the structure manageable. The timber floor panels hide this structure. The recycling units are built into the sides of one section of the seating, partially beneath these panels. They are placed at the most easily accessible points from each entrance and area, and can be removed to be easily cleaned and emptied. The roof structure is dynamic, a key element in the aesthetics of the design. The support of the roof is provided by the timber poles and steel cable which is attached to the fabric and runs down into the metal rungs below the floor, linking each corner to its opposite pole, creating more strength and keeping the form simplistic and elegant. The roof is made out of a freeform material, durable and water resistant, combining aestheticism and functionality- when the central poles are removed it retracts to its original shape. Its surface also encourages water drainage to the lowest points preventing pooling in the canopy.

End of year Show
- Enclosed space provides a weatherproof shelter Along theroute from the Built Environment to the new Engineering Faculty building. - Users can move freely in and out of the pavilion as they please while in transit between lectures or maybe waiting for a bus or as a meeting point to see friends. The central structure is hinged, so that it can be unfolded into a single ”trunk-like” stand alone unit; minimising the need for surplus labour. Veranda bolts fix the structure together at all the finger joints. Lycra is fed through hooks If one of the and tensioned veranda to form the cover bolts is left thus preventing in the beam at any damage to each of the joints, it the fabric. will allow the entire thing to be packed as a compact unit; making it easier to transport and assemble.
- The radius of the arc of each of the segmented benches is synonymous throughout; thus, enabling them to fit together and form one continuous surface- the stage for the End of Year Show. - Staging can be positioned underneath the open arches, while the enclosed space can be used to seat the guest speakers.
Ecobuild - Organic structure encapsulates one enclosed and one open space. - Users can engage with the pavilion and change it to suit their needs. - TV/Screen for Ecobuild projected onto interior fabric/screen. - Pavilion can be easily taken apart and assembled on site as the structure unfolds about the central “trunk”, meaning assembly is easy to fold together and transport.

The Dark Reaction In day-to-day life, excessive pollution and chemtrails cause mutations in the carbon cycle. What if the carbon cycle had a mind of it’s own? What if it chose to mutate and keep the oxygen which we ﬁnd so precious? The pavillion looks at how that would disturb humans, it is based on the cross section of the capillaries of a lung, taking in far too much carbon and not enough oxygen. It begins organically and structured, and ends full and clogged up. The progression can be seen moving from a regular shade into an irregular and mutated pattern that contorts the light. The pavilion would be made up of three structures, which develop independently and can form many compositions, suited speciﬁcally to each site’s demands. The material of choice is plywood, it can be easily lasercut and put together, packing up small but remaining strong in structure. The shading device is made entirely from recycled plastic bottles, free of charge. The total expenditure for solely materials is estimated at <£300,

Integrated Design In Architecture
Route: The chosen route goes through Cripps and down the hill to the engineering department. There are safe stairs and a well used route with many people around. It cuts in a straight line, so reduces time. Its quite a varied route taking in many environments Location: Our location is on the corner of the road leading into the engineering areas, it is visible from the main road and is on the route from many places on campus. Our site is positioned tactically to interact with a vast amount of people
Spatial Concept: We chose to create a semi-enclosed space where there is still openness for people to see and walk through, but also shelter to allow people to stop and dwell. Our design resembles a tr tree, branching out and providing a canopy. Materials: Our materials are derived from a rubber tree. Rubber is made by harvesting and solidifying the sap which flows through the tree. So essentially the rubber tree contains liquid rubber. Rubber st is a strong waterproof and very flexible material, perfect for coating our structure in. Plywood has a high strength to weight ratio and easy to manufacture and work with.
Constructive concept: As our structure is made from singular elements they are easily cutout as there are only a few type of elements.They are sto simply stored and transported and easy to assemble and take apart on site
Structural concept: Our structural concept simply uses repetitive elements which are layered together to create strength, with poles laye holding the layers apart. Arms branch of and support the main structure, giving stability. To add a sense of enclosure to our structure a rubber mesh will be weaved throughout the timber construction, and will provide some shelter from the wind and rain.
