Proposal for the New LACMA

Graduate Thesis at SCI-Arc Thesis Advisor: Tom Wiscombe Cultural Agent: Marrikka Trotter

This thesis project is a new LACMA museum proposal, which starts from the idea that the museum architecture is a cabinet of parts. Starting from its first inception at the Ashmolean, a museum has always been about collecting and displaying objects to the public. From the cabinets of wonders to the modern gallery, was seen as “microcosms” of civilization’s creation- it encapsulates and miniaturizes the world.

Model kit is a collection, a set of parts, a curation- it’s a museum on an extremely small scale. The parts laid out and displayed in a kit, like treasures in a cornucopia, but they can also be assembled and point to a real Mies van der Rohe, Barcelona Pavilion, Barcelona, 1929

thing. The weirdness of the scale changes the way we comprehend the architecture. 08

Sir John Soane’s Museum in London, which nests several display rooms in a muted volume, is a huge model kit containing several sub-kits inside. It’s a museum but a collection of things. In the Soane’s Museum deluxe model kit, the types were pulled out to become parts and be reassembled on the LACMA site in a different way, yet retain the sense that they could be taken apart at any time.

DS 1420

The animation shows the programs of the existing LACMA museum and the surrounding buildings. This is Peter Zumthor’s rebuild proposal for LACMA. It emphasized the horizontality and the floating quality of the exhibition space. For an altered option, I’d like to propose a village type of museum with insulated matte building, involuted open space and a diversity of forms of curation, rather than strict division of indoor and outdoor.

Parts are stacked, scaled, rotated, nested inside one another, and assembled into a super-figure facing Wilshire Boulevard. The open figure becomes a part of the new Los Angeles’ urban view, replacing the strict division of the existing museum schemes. The huge staircase with resonance figures can be accessed from the street level, connecting Wilshire Boulevard to the urban-scaled balconies and civic art plaza. The project, itself a gigantic cabinet, contains the art of our time in inventive ways, and opens up to the city.

OBM HQ Extension Design

3GBX Design Studio Thesis Advisor: Tom Wiscombe Partner: KaiYing Lin Assistant Teacher: Sam Flower

The thing about the architecture models is that they represent things at another scale. For us, when the architecture exists in the real scale, we look into the programs, the constructions, and the spaces. By contrast, when the architecture exists in the model kit world, it follows the model kit logic. The model kit focus on the features of the original object instead of the real construction methodology. It exaggerates the playful elements in the real world.

The OBM Headquarter Extention Design is based on the Castle Hedingham model kit we made. The Castle Hedingham is located in Essex, England. The difference between the interior and the exterior is what we focused on. The deluxe model kit is developed from the Castle Hedingham, and the one that we call the “dark version� is developed from the deluxe model kit.

We are not only trying to emphasize the features of the fireplace, the window, and the spiral staircase into a different unique entity, but keep it developing to a recognizable model, and reveal the secret of the castle interior. In the dark version, we attempt to utilize the other parts in the deluxe model kit to reassemble an unrecognizable and different quality of a model, which is helping us to deeply think over the scale between a model kit and real architecture.

In the model kit drawing world, the model is scaleless. Parts are scaled, duplicated, and be assembled together to become components. Like we play with the models, the parts act as proto-architecture to engage the site and develop programs. The breakdown of our OBM Headquarter Extension design is like an instructional drawing that put in the model kit box, it re-understands the architecture from a model perspective. 28

FORM OF KNOWLEDGE

03

2GBX Design Studio Instructor: Jackilin Hah Bloom Partner: Hiral Ahir

The studio project focuses on the study of the relationship between architecture and the spatial expression of differential collections of knowledge (or information). The project is for a public library in downtown Atlanta, Georgia, to replace Marcel Breuer’s Central Atlanta Library and is to be conceived in relation to the current controversy surrounding the status of the existing building. The studio’s main focus is on disciplinary questions of the relationships amongst typology, function, and aesthetics. These questions will be considered as they relate to current issues of media, technology, and access.

We envision the ever changing form of knowledge, as an interdependent system of information exchange between think tank offices and the library. Considering the state of flux libraries are undergoing, our proposal aims to respond to this dynamics spatially.

COLLAGE

/

In order to redefine library’s monolithic posture in the city, we began to organize it under its most basic metaphor as a container. We began by looking at a jumbled mass of different types of containers, like, jute bags, bath tubs, vending machines etc. We explored its various agglomerations through a collage. These groupings are examined based on their shapes and how they interact with the ground, edge and sky.

33


34


Portfolio | HouSheng Wang

A 220ft tall building sits on the ground creating various access point from all corners of the site boundary. Cafe’s, lounges and small meet up spaces are housed on the ground floor to recreate the public space gesture within the library. Three cores along with segregated floor plates contribute to the volume of this building. Non-linear dynamic spaces allow the users to adapt and circulate around the building in a unique way. Envelope of the building, enhances the loose-fit posture this library holds.

The skin hugs the massing at various points creating tight fit interior spaces. Like, private reading rooms, library book stacks, digital archives, seminar spaces etc constitute in these interior zones. While some spaces seem to push the cage away to create semi-open exterior spaces. Like, casual think tank pods, cafes, group reading etc takes place in these semi-open areas.

39


This amalgamation of the loose-fit massing with the skin offers a mixture of spatial opportunities between library and think tank spaces. Every corner of the building reflects this play between the inside and the outside.

This composition is efficient because of the interdependence of its parts to form a whole. This jumbled inter dependent library building is a result of a hoarder-like posture of our massing model. This volume of dissimilar objects offered an interesting tenuous posture in the way it interacted with the sky, ground and the site.

Exploring its various potentials to agglomerate in the form of a collage, this parti offered us novel ways of imagining internal composition of our think tank library.

AFTER DAYS 2GAX Design Studio Instructor: Natasha Sandmeier Partner: Siyu Zheng

Today we live in a world entirely dominated by the production, proliferation and consumption of images. Image literacy is, arguably, one of the most crucial skills we need in order to go about our daily lives, distinguishing the real from the fake, the authentic from the artificial, the relevant from the frivolous. This workshop asks us to walk a tightrope between those conditions in order to challenge our contemporary means of architectural representation, and to begin to construct our own attitude towards it.

There is a long history of designers and architects who have worked through their agendas within the confines of a room before elaborating those concepts into larger scaled architectures and ultimately, cities. The room is the space in which you invent and combine your findings, where you transgress the authentic with the subjective. It is the space in which you can construct your own identity. It’s the world you define, shape and design. It has physical constraints, but limitless creative opportunities.

#PhotoChemicalSmog #LosAngeles #Doomsday

47


AFTER DAYS

DS 1200

Our story is based on an ultra-toxic event of in Los Angeles.

1944 was the year of the great Photochemical Smog event in Los Angeles.

This event created an environment of paranoia and fear, alongside a prolonged media frenzy. News stories about smog prevention, and devices to prevent smog inhalation dominated newspapers and magazines, provoking scientists to invent and market a series of bizarre gas masks, incubators, and other protection devices. Regrettably, no one focussed on smog reduction and prevention.

This project is set in 1994, 50 years after that critical turning point in LA’s history. The toxic effects of the smog reached an unprecedented level and ultimately led to an era-ending environmental catastrophic.

People were looking for the scientists who were working on reversing this disaster in hopes of saving the earth. The scientists launched an emergency protocol and built this room to study the solution.

Yes, actually this room is the last hope of human being. In this toxic world, nature and plants occupied everywhere, but the human cannot survive in this disaster. All the creatures were extinguished by the smog. A researcher froze himself in the incubator for years to extend his lifetime in order to study the solution.

However, after he woke up, the world had already perished. He became the only human in this planet. Day after day, he can only monitor the outside world and review the old videos of doomsday, trying to re-establish the human civilization.

ENGAGEMENT 2GAX Design Studio Instructor: M. Casey Rehm Partner: Siyu Zheng

Architecture has historical methods of interface. The physical material of the building mediates the internal and external systems of exchange, whether a medieval city wall separating domesticated interior from wilderness or curtai wall mediating fluctuating external climates with stable interior climates. This workshop, though, will look at how the designer can operate through interfacing high resolution digital site data and their own intentions. We will confront the ability of humanity to generate and collect vast quantities of information with our relative limited ability to engage it meaningfully. The workshop project will explore both how we can design through interface, and how we can represent architecture as interface.

The workshop project will explore the production of synthetic wildernesses in urban voids within downtown Los Angeles. The complex structures will be generated in response scanned meshes of the urban context and bottom up logic driven by color and non-human agendas.

68

We aimed to find a strategy to engage the site, because in downtown LA, these monumentally scale cultural spaces

are one of the only territories left for densification. We tried to create a residential building to occupy the open

space based on the urban context .

We generated the apartment volumes and textures by scripts. In this cultural area, the apartment extend the interfaces of both sides of the street to public spaces. It will look like a mix of the two building’s façade elements, and connect them as a whole.

The structure looks like grew from the street’s elevation naturally and blend the visual elements together. This way, the apartment interface can merge into the environment smoothly.

The biggest component is used as a residential unit. The symbol from the Broad to Colburn School is from visual to functional, aggressive to oblique, idealistic to pragmatic. The apartment will literally and physically located on the middle of one side and its counterpart. The medium one is a kind of screen which is attached on the biggest one. The smallest component is the structure of the whole architecture.

THE COAL BREAKERS

/

Coal breakers which were essentially coal preparation plants housed in buildings on site often as close to the mine opening as possible for economy and ease of operation. Over the next 150 years coal breakers numbering in the hundreds spread throughout the anthracite region. Some had colorful local names; others were simply numbered. However identified the coal breaker was essential to the operation of the mine. Often dominating the landscape around the various coal patch towns, they were what I like to refer to as monuments to king coal.

OXFORD COAL BREAKER

Our studio referred to the postcards and the photograph and built 14 coal breaker models in 1/16� scale. The Oxford Coal Breaker is my reference. We held an exhibition at school to showcase our work, sharing our perspective and the bizarreness of these out-dated gigantic buildings. What the coal breaker attract me most is the bizarreness of the contruction logic. Unlike the horizontal logic of a pyramid, the coal breaker is more about verticallity. It has layers and each layer has different profile.

MASSING

Bigger at the top, smaller at the bottom or small at the top, smaller at the bottom? We dicussed this question a lot in our studio class. The vertical logic of a coal breaker is a reverse of thinking. I also tried to reverse spacially.

An upside down coal breaker be put inside a pyramid, precicely, a pyramid-like shape as a void. So the pyramid, which is bigger at the bottom, smaller at the top, becomes a shell. An reverse coal breaker becomes an atrium, a public space to gather people inside.

CURIOSITIES 2GAX Design Studio Instructor: Marcelyn Gow Partner: Siyu Zheng

Taking the cabinet of curiosities or wunderkammer of the future as a point of departure, this workshop was operated under the premise that collecting and curation will increasingly become ineluctable facets of the way we produce architecture. Perusing the OED, one finds that curiosity is defined as: sb. 1. Carefulness, scrupulousness, accuracy; undue niceness or subtlety. 2. A desire to know or learn; inquisitiveness. 3. Scientific or artistic interest; connoisseurship. 10. A curious detail or feature. 11. Anything curious, rare or strange. Curio is defined as: sb. 1. An object of art valued as a curiosity or rarity.

CURIOSITIES

DS 1200

We began with a process of digitally extracting details measuring 16’ x 10’ x16’ from a site in Downtown Los Angeles using the Agisoft 3D scanning software. The site is the Bonaventure Hotel. We transformed details extracting from the site into a curio object whereby the object can be understood both at 1:1 scale and as a portion of the original building. In this case, we captured a intersection of column and beam, balcony, a part of stairs, and a decorated wall. We tried to deconstruct and recombine them in 1:1 scale as a Combination

prototype of a flower shop.

ADVANCED MATERIALS AND TECTONICS 2GAX Seminar Instructor: Maxi Spina, Randy Jefferson Partner: Juicheng Hung, KaiYing Lin, KaiYun Lei

This project of the seminar focus into re-originating the tectonic reality of the precedent’s distinctive form of articulation and/or means of producing apertures so as to study a novel set of formal, geometrical and technological associations. We constructed a problem-defining hypothesis with which to frame the re-origination of the envelope’s anatomy. Also, we tried to demonstrate how the focused redevelopment of the building’s outermost surface elements and sub-systems, together with an understanding of the constructive process from which those arise, can be systematically approached so as to re-inform the tectonic origins of the work without diminishing its performance.

Based on the research we did, the rocks have no changeable, and it causes the design of facade is lack of variations. Moreover,, it causes the 2.

cost of secondary structure high. Therefore, We

decide to change material for the facade. The material of facade is aluminum plates. Because

1.

it is lightweight, it can reduce the cost of the secondary structure. Furthermore, It has good quality in flexible at the design point.

4.

We add more layers to emphasize the variation

of the facade and at the same time reduce the amount of the secondary structure. Moreover, adding more layers contributes to putting shadows of windows to avoid the direct sunlight. At the same time, enlarging the size of windows can help bring in more indirect light to save energy. For instance, the aluminum plates canopy has a certain angle degree to avoid the sunlight. Besides the ability to avoid sunlight, behind the aluminum plates can add some insulation materials to keep the radiation heat

from away. Furthermore, we hope we can have some small openings in the certain area of the facade. Adding layers and opening can help bring more light and add more changes to the facade as well. 2. 1. 4.

FOLDING DOOR 3GAX Seminar Instructor: Dwayne Oyler Partner: Liu Qiao, Yunfei Cao

This course is an investigation into the future of the architecture detail. Beginning with the question, “what is an architecture detail today?“, the course considered a range of critical positions on the issue, and tests their outcome through the design and fabrication of an architecture detail.

Base on the five architectural detail definitions outlined by Edward Ford, each student will be asked to position themselves through the 5 categories - or to place themselves between more than one of them. Drawings from that position on the topic, students are then asked to design (and construct at half of full scale) an architectural detail.

We specifically studied OPERABLES.

FOLDING DOOR

/

The way that the Folding Door move is inspired by a method of paper folding called reversed folded. The subdivision of the surface allows the door to be opened and closed by the motion of folding. The main structure of the door is made with 3/8 inches baltic birch plywood and be connected with copper hinges. The door is fixed with steel bolt, go through a bearing and holded on the wall with hex nut. The walnut veneer on the door hides the hinges to keep the cleanness of the finish surface.

Further on students will build on these techniques to create variation within this system. Moving into the third dimensions students will need to embrace machine logics and material behavior as informing agents in the design and fabrication process. Students will get familiar with digital fabrication technologies such as CNC machines, vacuum forming machines and industrial robots. By completing this course, students should be familiar with taking basic surface tessellations and patterns from sketch board to the production of complex assemblages. In the process, students should learn essential grasshopper skills, and how to incoorporate the design constrains of production machines in the design process.

PANEL MAKING

/

We used grasshopper script to distort a grid, to 3D modeling tessellation panels. We used CNC mill to make a physical mold then we vacuum-formed several 6mm PETG sheets on it to produce panels for the column surface.

The tessellated panels can be assembled to form a column, a wall, or a room. The tessellation is endless.

AUGMENTED REALITY 2GAX Seminar Instructor: M. Casey Rehm, Andrea Cadioli Partner: KaiYing Lin

The project for the seminar utilized interactive animations in augmented reality in conjunction with designed contexts to produce synthetic misreadings on the interior of physical models. The final composition between 3D printed object, 2D physical printed backgrounds, and animated augmented reality section pieces produced compositions which could only exist when working with these disparate mediums. While previous exercises in the seminar focused on abstracting a physical object through digital techniques, this exercise focused on the ability of digital visualization techniques to reintroduce higher resolution information back into the physical environment.

We set flower as the target, trying to capture the posture, the shape, and the details by 3D scanning. We used Agisoft Photoscan technique to finish this process. By 3D scanning, we got the dense cloud of the flower, which allows us to build the mesh 3D model of the flower. We made some composition arrangement at the same time.

BECOME THE INTERNET 2GBX Seminar Instructor: Damjan Jovanovic, Angelica Lorenzi

“​As we look around the modern world, we see the ghosts of other conventional distinctions, which now appear as arbitrary as the borders on our phones. On the internet, the gap between next door and next continent implodes. Northern Baroque paintings, Triassic fossils and yesterday’s op-eds are tabs on the same browser. Raised by a global chorus of voices, our identities are voluntary, malleable and unprescribed. We are everywhere, anytime and everyone at once.​”

- Thom Bettridge, Joerg Koch and Lucas Mascatello. The Big Flat Now ​Op-Ed, 032c Magazine

The seminar focused on a problem of formally representing knowledge in the age of the “big flat now�. If the classical ideas of ordering, indexing and systematic and functional organization were tied to the idea of encyclopedia as the possibility of fully describing, understanding and ordering the world, the seminar shifts its focus towards ideas of accumulation and aggregation as a new formal language that conceptualizes the internet as a new model of knowledge.

163


VS 4201

This seminar introduced students to a range of digital workflows (from sourcing of 3D models, to texture mapping to coding in C# and real-time rendering) utilizing a range of softwares (Internet object collections, Unity-Platform Sandbox, Maya). The seminar focused on sourcing objects and designing a personal, custom made software imaging application in order to establish and automate a range of aesthetic micro-genres within a common search space of a tool. The seminar also explored simulation as an aesthetic problem and treats screenshots as finished images in order to propose novel paths for digital design procedures as cognitive labor. Students produced a massive catalog of digital models in order to establish a collective visual ‘search space’ and to think what it means to evaluate and select on such a large scale.

The seminar focused on development of a custom software called Platform Sandbox, in the Unity game engine, and on sourcing a collection of 3d models that will serve as a library of parts to be deployed in Platform. After the collection is made, each student selected up to ten objects to represent a specific genre of contemporary culture, in order to produce piles and aggregations within the genre and ultimately, a genre-bash in order to model hybrid, characteristic objects. ​

166


Portfolio | HouSheng Wang

167


A genre object is defined as an semi-abstract 3d figure with recognizable, analogical or evocative qualities belonging to a specific genre. These objects are deployed as primary objects in Platform Sandbox, where they are mixed with high definition realistic 3d objects - rocks, twigs and stones. This new design space establishes an (un)easy coexistence between formal languages of abstraction and realism that now inhabit the collapsed visual field of simulation and real time rendering.

In a world ruled by the connection between technology and the human experience, Los Angeles in the year 2200 will be a center point of entertainment in the world. With developments in technology, Los Angeles has become a utopia for both the physical residents as well as an oasis for the virtual avatars that invisibly walk the streets. With G.E.N. (Global Entertainment Nucleus) we focus on how to use architecture to fuse the worlds and experiences of both the physical and the virtual with the intent of design with a reflection of the island’s history as well as showcasing why the island will push entertainment into the future in the year 2200.

This project is a re-definition of an abandoned area. A park can be developed downward to the root of the history of the land, instead of being limited as a flat zone above the ground. It’s a new form of citizen park, reflecting the needs of the city, making people gathered here, and building a symbiotic relationship.

I tried to organize the environment context such as the roads, alleys, and the axis of buildings, then arrange them on the site, organizing the fragments that people can reach and see. The smaller these fragments, the higher the possibility that people reach.

The boundary between the things underground and the things on the ground should be obscure since the site has a historical railway.

The plaza at the east side of the site makes people gather, connecting to the main path of the park - the railway. When passing through, pedestrians can see the hanging garden from a low position. This makes citizens truly feel they are a part of the city

The retails contain farmers’ markets, creatives markets, and free exhibitions. Studios can also rent the spaces. They need to hold workshops or exhibitions to make contributions to the public.

The railway will be reserve completely and all the machinery on the railway can be displayed. The historical railway will be approachable.
