BOAT LAUNCH

SET IN madisonville, Louisiana, (11 foot floodplain prohibits interior spaces lower than 11’ above ground ) THE INTENTION OF MY PROJECT WAS to create a dichotomy between dark and light, dense and open, REFERENCING the position of a boat resting in a body of water FOR THE DESIGN. This is achieved by an interpretation of the experience of being underwater, on the ground floor; dark, heavy, almost disorienting chambers below a light and open construct above, forming the second and third floors. The experience above is open and vessel-like. Glu-lam beams form the structure of the boat building program, visually referencing the

structure of a wooden boat. This light “vessel” is a contrast to the density and darkness of the masses that it rests upon. A series of punctures through the upper floors allow light to wash the walls of the ground floor, pulling visitors in towards a grand chamber adjacent to the boat launch that is partially flooded, bringing the experiential qualities of the ground floor to life. These “light boxes” become the binding element that anchors the school in place, they allow for a transfer of views and bring an ephemeral element to the ground floor which houses an ecology exhibit, tying the ground floor to nature and contrasting the structure above which celebrates our ability to build both beautiful and functional objects that have a direct conversation with water.

SET IN THE Warehouse District OF New Orleans, THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT WAS To create a naturally moving facade that would respond to weather conditions and enhance thermal and visual comfort WITHIN THE PROPOSED STRUCTURE. The AIM IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS COMPLEX FACADE was to create a system that would move naturally in response to changes in light and temperature. The result is a system of triangulated modules with panels that are connected to adjacent modules by a series of spring loaded joints. The springs are of an aluminum alloy with a high coefficient of thermal expansion. The spring form allows for a higher difference in expansion and contraction in conjunction to changes in exterior temperature. When the

weather is warm, the joins expand, pushing each module closed and allowing in less light. When the exterior temperature is cold, the opposite EFFECT TAKES PLACE. This system provides shading to the two upper floors. The ground floor at this section is the bookstore/cafe, clad only in double glazing to increase street presence and visual interaction between interior and exterior. The mechanical system supplies air to the ground floor through a drop ceiling and to the upper levels through a raised floor. All levels utilize a plenum return system through the dropped ceiling, necessary on the upper levels to accommodate a series of cannister lights in the dance studios.

SIN CENTER

design studio project (team)

Conceived as an adult playground of sexual indulgence and debauchery, the Sin Center is designed in the abstracted form of two bodies engaged in coitus, behind a gossamerlike façade reminiscent of an immense stage curtain. The parti takes inspiration from the art of immersive theater, in which the audience inhabits the same spatial envelope as the performers thus breaking down the “fourth wall” that traditionally separates viewers from actors. Visitors are beckoned behind the “curtain” through a gentle slit in the otherwise non-descript exterior and traverse an inflated interstitial space surrounding the bodies that house the more active and explicit program elements, private dining halls, dance clubs, elaborate undressing chambers, Turkish baths and sexual fantasy rooms. Short moments of respite are created in the spaces between the two forms, particularly I ND IA C LAIRE JAC OBS CV & WORK SAMPLE 2016

SECTION Iii

when the visitor exits one and is received by the other, on an orchestrated path of circulation in which the visitor becomes increasingly undressed and inebriated. The objective in creating such anthropomorphized forms to house the majority of program spaces is to use the architecture in a way that encourages sinful acts, the way an actor in an immersive play might take the hand of an audience member and guide them through the rooms a warehouse, or set of the play, yielding a unique view of the evening’s events, different from those of the other members of their party. The circulation is highly choreographed until the undressing chamber, in which multiple paths open up to the visitor and their experience starts to reflect that of their particular desires.

ARCHITECTURAL ASSOCIATION year abroad

YEAR 100

“[What I saw] modified my way of looking at reality. In my hallucinations, I had learned important things—that I am just a human being, for example, and am intimately linked to other life forms and that true reality is more complex than our eyes lead us to believe.” Jeremy Nar b y , T h e C osm ic S erpe n t ( a n a n t h ropolog i s t ’s acco u n t o f his parti ci pati o n in th e A s h a ninca a y a h u asca r i t u als )

During my year abroad at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, I was enrolled in Intermediate Unit 11: Trance Holistic Platforms under the tutors Manuel Collado, Nacho Martin (Mi5 Arquitectos) and Manijeh Verghese. During this study, the unit concerned itself first with body scale architecture and holistic healing platforms utilized by both locals and global nomads in Goa, India, where we traveled as a group to collect data and participate in a variety of rituals related to the topic. I chose to look specifically at nature worship and healing plant species and produced a

series of drawings and paintings to illustrate spaces and shamanic garb to be used by the tribe of my design. The Alternate Earth is a holistic healing platform located in the foothills of the Western Ghats in Goa, adjacent to a sacred grove whose neighbors harbor a longstanding tradition of nature worship. In order to heal the body and mind, the human becomes an integral part of the natural environment, hybridizing itself with plant species which possess healing properties. In this way a higher state of consciousness is attained in which the being gains a better understanding of humanity’s place in nature. With these micro-biospheres, the individual gains a new insight into how humans rely on the natural environment. By magnifying this relationship between humans and plants one experiences first hand how the life cycles of plants and humans are related.

FIfth YEAR THESIS

future mythologies: revisiting the american dream

Recipient: Tulane University School of Architecture’s Outstanding thesis Award Faculty elected, 2 recipients per year Featured in month long, eponymously titled show at the front gallery in new orleans, as well as Tulane’s “ogden 8” show at the ogden museum, a show of the architecture school’s top eight thesis projects

Middle Class Consumer Culture in modern American Mythology - how the American Dream Fuels Capitalism... After WWII, booming industry afforded young families the opportunities to buy homes in the suburbs, cars to get them there and consumer goods to ensure a comfortable lifestyle. Marketing these goods to this demographic became less about the product and more about how it would represent their level of taste and status. Today, generations of Americans work tirelessly to fulfill their duties as consumers and surround themselves with the accoutrement this Dream dictates. All leisure time activities and disposable income are aimed at achieving comfort, security and distraction. My work aims to critique the resulting values this pattern yields in the middle class consumers who embody this dream. Taking cues from the work and rhetoric of Matthew Barney and Paul McCarthy in their critique and lampooning of The American Dream, I have created my own mythological environment that seeks to exaggerate and

I ND IA C LAIRE JAC OBS CV & WORK SAMPLE 2016

exacerbate this All-American myth through the lens of middle class leisure activities, recreation and tourism culture. The placement of this architecture above the Hollywood Hills is fitting in that it creates a tension with California’s historic drought, and that it complements L.A.’s existing culture of True Fictions and Hyper-Realities. A large scale airship destination affords the middle class consumer the opportunity to experience the short term benefits and enjoyment offered by a water dense biome and the luxuries (i.e. golf courses, spas, leisure pools, etc. ) that require the use of large quantities of this increasingly scarce resource. It represents a mentality common among the middle and upper classes that equates money earned with freedom to do and experience what one pleases regardless of social or environmental impact. By creating an environment free of the hassles of water conservation and the awareness of historic, debilitating drought, the full bandwidth of reality is short-circuited by a desire to RELAX.

INSTALLATIONS & Digital FABRICATION

The majority of my work in digital fabrication occured over the course of my participation in Ammar Eloueini’s semester long seminar at Tulane University. The focus of that seminar was the study of lace and lace patterning and how that structure can be applied to digitally produced full scale non-architectural objects. I chose to produce a series of masks and headpieces both 3D printed and lasercut.

SECTION VII

During the second half of the seminar, the group was able to produce an installation within the lobby vestibule of Tulane’s architecture school. My personal contribution besides assembly and installation was the production of a continually repeating pattern that was applied to each hexagonal model in grasshopper.
