the three story space combines community eduaction and emergency coordination facilities into one resource center. the building is capable of withstanding a large earthquake or other natural disaster and will be able to provide needed aid and a space of safety to those in need.

2% grade the main goal of the building is to provide public sanctuary before and after a natural disaster. for this reason, it was important to find a form and structural system that could provide this need. any building can be reinforced to protect against collapse in an earthquake, however it is harder to guarantee its use after an earthquake. this was my reasoning for choosing the sphere as the basis to inform my design, in hopes that it would be more stable that other building forms.

The site has an important connection to natural systems and brings more open space to the Inner Southeast that is current missing from the urban environment. The large amount of open space and seating is to help facilitate disaster management of large quantities of people waiting for resources to be distributed. During most days the center acts as a forum for public events and education on sustainable living and disaster management.

STUDIO_ARCH 354_ fall 2007_ study abroad semester project

PROFESSOR_Juan Carlos Tappan Sanchez GROUP CONTRIBUTORS_h.knight: research, diagrams, montages, _a.temples: site diagrams,_ w.self: research, renders, floor plans

In the years preceding 2007, a decline in affordable housing and population expansion lead to fewer homeowners especially in Barcelona’s newer families. The possibility of the nearby port moving North would allow for the cities expansion into a new development.


/ Professor Juan Carlos / Clemson University / Spring 2011

Each unit is composed of recycled shipping containers. One and a half of these makes ample room for an efficient studio apartment. Connected by a bracing system, multiple units can be designed to function together, creating an outside semi-public space between the two.

h.r.knight + A.Temples + W.Self

su p e rstructur e s Morphallaxis is composed of 4 cores that vary in structure depending on usage. These superstructures are left open to allow the communities to decide the use of public space.. The cores provide a structure which the residences can shape to their needs.

The predicted movement of the people throughout the space: Two corners of the superstructure contain circulation elements. The floors run in a continuous square with accesses to each unit. One can enter through the semi-public space between units, or into the unit itself depending on orientation.

Three skins have been utilized to transform

e f f ici e n c y Morphallaxis responds to the flux of population change and allows for a continually morphing densities. The development leaves the public with more options to customize their own homes as well as together transform their urban public spaces.

NEOplexus creates a way to restore the current infrastructure to a functioning condition. Suspended above the streets, it allows for reconstruction while normal activities can continue unaffected. Public drinking wells hang to supply water to the treets as well as to educate the public on the amount of ater consumption per neighborhood.

the vertical farm is a living breathing growing system that allows for optimization of valuable land. Vertical farms could transform land usage and creat a community culture around food and health. it is important to reconnect with the source of our food and understand nutrition. Vertical farms can raise awareness of the resources that go into supporting our population. the farm is an important tool to re-enforce ways to recycle and reuse and understand ways to keep green.

Each floor is cantilevered and fanned around the central support structure. The floor plates all have sloped drainage towards the central support to optimize drainage and create facilities to recycle water. An exposed structural system mimics the arteries of leaves and other plant systems. The center of the larger farming tower also is the center for the other circulatory systems. This includes the building’s water collection/recycling system. A smaller tower provides housing and office space for the farm.

working with the owner and coordinator of the land and festival, we started redesigning the festival layout and new solutions for a different, more effective stage tent. researching textile designs and precedences lead us to create our own scaled down versions and iterations. the site is in the scenic, wooded north carolina mountains on a flat piece of land over looking lake eden. analyzing site lines of the mountain views and lake views, 2 new locations were considered for the main stage.

SCULPTURE

i n orga n ic

- orga n ic Using metal working skills, welding and an acetylene torch, I created this piece of cut, warped, melted metal. The inspiration behind this project is from the disjointed transportation systems between cities and within a lot of smaller cities. The disintegration of some cities is partly a result of poor infrastructure for citizens.


FOUND OBJECTS In this sculpture I started off with discarded film cameras. This is a result of digital photography and the instant gratification as well as a non-commitment value of each photo. People can afford to have a lot more photos but what is the worth of each one of these? To what extent have digital photos become just as much disposable as these old film camera?
