This project explores form and space in relation to the Bahá’í Faith. Central to Bahá’í theology is the notion of progressive revelation, which is the belief that civilization continuously evolves through new spiritual teachings. Pursuing adaptive reuse as an architectural analogue to progressive revelation, this thesis investigates how experiential and formal conditions that reflect Bahá’í theology may be generated from the latent potentials within an existing building. To achieve this, a particular historic structure in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil has been selected as a site to investigate how the characteristics that define Bahá’í spatiality may emerge in newly evocative forms.

With the completion the final Continental Houses of Worship in Santiago, Chile, the architectural aspirations of the Bahá’í Faith and its international community has evolved towards the development of Local Houses of Worship and its ancillary programs which aim to form the focal point for a community’s social and spiritual life. At the heart of these developments are the Worship Hall symbolic of the Bahá’í core principle of unity. As a religion built on the tenant of univesality, these are spaces where people from all walks of life can unite under a universal shelter for meditation, prayer and reading from the holy scriptures of any world religion.

progressive formation. MOINHO FLUMINENSE

As a developing country with significant economic and social polarity, Brazil is in dire need of interventions that generate social and spiritual rejuvination. Rio de Janeiro, a major culturally significant metropolis is a microcosm of this divide with the clash between poverty and wealth projected physically into the urban fabric. Siting within Porto, an underserved post-industrial zone north of the centre meets the demands of the faith in terms of siting and place by offering programs that will contribute to the betterment of the region by offering amenity in a central and accessible zone.

Rio de Janeiro’s hilltops form part of the city’s identity. Its mountaneous and scenographic landsape compliments the Bahá’í requirement for elevated siting. Dramatic edges of the city are activated by a network of varied elevated conditions or destinations connected visually.

Rio de Janeiro’s remaining inactive peaks are unbuildable, inaccessible and disconnected from community, forcing the consideration of other point of vantage with the heart of the metropolis.

PROGRESSIVE FOR MATION


ba h á’í spac e s tudie s These models represent a sample of explorations done of Bahá’í space in the abstract. The practices, ideology, symbolism and architecture of the faith were studied in order to identif y attributes of Bahá’í spatiality and form. These studies were then utilized as a basis for developing the program spaces of an emerging Bahá’í typology. Some spatial characteristics that were explored include: an open and flexible plan with concentrated ser vices that allow a vast range of program types to exist over time; a dynamic spatial and visual intersection and interrelation of program types; coexistence and unification of diverse elements; radial arrangement of interior space representative of unity.

There is a constant oscillation of media within the varied work s of ar tist Rodney G raham. He experiment s with blurring boundaries through the inter sec tion of t ype. Tofino House, a weekend retreat for Rodney and his studio fam ily, treat s space in this same way by eliminating barrier s traditionally found in the do mestic realm. A field of fixed ser vice “sculptures� house programs requiring acoustic and visual separation. The resulting ambiguous solid void plan creates an illusion of absolute transparenc y and porosit y, and provides flexibilit y of use, allowing through it s indeterminac y a continual reorganization of the various domestic func tions. Strate gic positioning of ma sses and gla zed separations provide necessar y visual and physic al boundaries for privac y.

Voronoi morphologies form the geometric typology of this mixed-use housing complex sited in downtown Vancouver. Three-dimensional modular structures or cells were produced through the distribution of a field of points, drafting connecting lines between these points and finally drafting lines perpendicular to the centerpoint of these connecting lines. The resulting space and unit types aim to redefine the nature of housing in Vancouver by challenging existing cultural and social dynamics in the home while providing a platform for a dynamic occup anc y str u c ture. S e r v ic e s are compressed into thickened walls providing an openness and flexibility of use. Despite this connec tedness of levels, the central stair and horizontal shift of the cells create a visual buf fer providing the necessar y privacy required in shared living.

This project is an exploration of the themes of pleasure and fantasy in the production of novel architecture, looking specifically at the role of scale and dynamism. The hotel complex experiments with dynamic structures. A symphony of obser vator y balloons dance and light up the night sky, providing a panoramic view of the dramatic coast of San Francisco. The undulating roof structure allows guests to rise and fall and experience the preser ved ruins of the Sutro Bath from various vantage points.

Osteria Savio Volpe is a new restaurant that is scheduled to open in Fraserhood at 615 Kingsway Ave this fall. This former tire shop is being re built into an Italian neighborhood restaurant with “peasant-style Italian food with vigour” (Scout Magazine). The design brief involved creating a space that was modest, warm and inviting, and both comtemporar y and traditional through the use of warm materials such as wood, wicker and quarr y stone detailed in an innovative way. This restaurant challenges convention by replacing the restaurant bar with a “kitchen island” around which guests sit and obser ve the preparation of items much like a home dinner par t y where people traditionally migrate into the kitchen.

Pearl Block involves the adap tive reuse of an existing commercial struc ture construc ted in East Vancouver in 1910. This projec t became an experiment in incorporating a new and unconventianal living environment into an existing struc ture by reimagining the t ypical arrangement of domestic programs to create a dynamic social spatial inte rior geography. This 400m2 building stands as an anomaly within a now-zoned residential neighborhood. The double frontage of the building extends into the organization of the interior: the ver tical sub division by a thickened wall of program and circulation that divides the space into a home for the client’s growing family and a rental unit. This programmed circulation wall extends the entire height of the struc ture up to a sk ylight which floods light into the centre of the space.

EcoSoMo, Ecological Social Modules, is a public ar t projec t in the residential neighborhood on Burnaby Mountain adjacent to SFU. The modules are made up of a series of dynamic sculptural forms that are modulated in various cluster arrangements and arrayed along 800’ of Universit y High Street. They aim to synthesize human social and natural ecological func tions. The projec t involved an unprecedented use of duc tal, a high-per formance concrete, to achieve interlocking forms with an intricate textured sur face. The forms are both futuristic and primitive. Their angular abstrac tion suggests modern faceted geometries that re spond to the changing light while the boulder-like simplicit y conveys a more ancient monumentalit y.

A temporar y installation at the Harmony Ar ts Festival 2014 along West Vancouver’s water front. Vermilion Sands is based on a collec tion of scifi shor t stories by J.G. Ballard about futuristic design practices that hybridize technology with nature. It challenges the relationship bet ween the natural and ar tificial. The installation canopy is construc ted of 260 geometric geo textile steel-framed modules sprayed with a hydroseeding mixture (pulp fibres, perennial r ye grass seeds or white clover seeds and guar gum). The forms grew over several weeks at Klee Wyck Nurser y in West Vancouver prior to installation at Millenium Park. The modules were suspended from a aircraf t cable grid pro ducing a geometric natural canopy that inetgrated a misting system to both hydrate the plants while providing cooling to festival goers.

Under the Bridges is a proposal developed for a temporar y public ar t installation under the nor th and south end of the Burrard Bridge. Coloured construc tion netting is stretched, t wisted and drapped from the existing struc tural members ar ticulating the space below. The dynamic sinous form activates the underutilized and forgotten space by highlighting it as a summer destination, a place to gather or a checkpoint along your way down the Vancouver Seawall. The translucenc y of the piece varies as one moves below and struc tural members ap pear and dissappear.

I have always appreciated the transformative power of international travel and global experiences. Having to navigate through foreign countires with unfamiliar languages and contrasting cultures proves to be an amazing oppor tunit y for learning and grow th. It turns one’s gaze completely outwards to the diversit y of the world in which we live and expands one’s perspec tive through the exploration of other societies, their alternative insights, ways of living and how this is manifested in their architec ture. A s the innaugural recipient of the Ar thur Erickson Travel Study Award I was given the op porutnit y to explore through travel a subjec t that I am passionate about, the architec ture of the Bahá’ í Faith and documented my travels through a photo journal. The following is a selec tion of pieces from my journey.

silou INDEPENDENT PROJECT 2009 Kyle Auch Exbited at IDS 2008 Toronto; Awarded Best Design 2008

0091

Silou is a conceptual piece which both explores and blurs the relationship between furniture and art. It provides the benefits of both decoration (art) and function (seat). It is seemingly a framed art piece in its stored position, with its various components notching into its frame like a puzzle. The fragments are easily removed and assembled into a chair. The individual pieces notch together and the joints receive increased support by industrial strength magnets. Because it provides dual-purpose and its flat construction, silou provides efficiencies in terms of material usage (no waste), shipping (flat-packed) and saving space by uncluttering the modern home. This concept may be applied to the construction of space and architecture, with prefabricated walls that house components that can be extracted and assembled to service the space they occupy.

tenjinyama study E X P L O R I N G S PAC E S T U D I O 2013

00101

This is a collection of images of model studies of Atelier Tenjinyama in Japan by Takashi Fujino and Ikimono Architects. This live-work space tests the limits between inside and outside by bringing elements of nature indoors where they traditionally are not found. The earth floor and the presence of trees on the interior along with the glass roof and tall windows creates a blur of interiority and exteriority and further connects occupants with the surrounding town. The entire space, simplistic in its design, is constructed of four walls and a glass roof. The resulting space is one where occupants can experience more intensely the dynamism and change throughout the day and the variances of the seasons. Dramatic shadows shift and change throughout the day with the movement of the sun.
