Slice Mass

Team: John Alexa and Yukun Xu Program: Skyscraper Site: Anywhere China {100M x 100M} Class: Design {2G3} Duration: 2 Weeks Professor: Clover Lee and David Erdman This project involves a quick design for a skyscraper located within a generic 200m x 200m site in Hong Kong. It borrows from techniques used by Naum Gabos’ Linear Construction in Space as an inspirational form finder, lacing together structural members of a skyscraper to create volumetric masses within the tower. The team utilized the lace to slice mass from one another, creating a tower of multiple masses, tectonically held together as one. To generate a twist on Gabos’ constructions in space, the traditional Chinese residential tower came into questioning. Can we depart from the habitual tower, yet still keep some traditional aspects within the design? As a response to this question, we used the traditional structural system of a tower as a starting point for us to weave in the work of Gabo’s Linear Construction in Space. The structural members from the project took on a conventional grid, evenly spaced, of a Hong Kong residential tower and were reconfigured and bound together to apply a Gabo approach. In the end, Slice Mass pulled apart four different masses from the seeds of Gabo and the traditional tower. Naum Gabo Slice Mass


Eco Hat Team: John Alexa, John Anderson, Nick McFadden Program: Office Site: Las Vegas, NV Class: Enviornmental Design {Arch 482} Duration: 3 Weeks Professor: Jack Kremers This project is an accumulation of environmental systems that respond to and embrace the work of Bruce Mau and his book Massive Change. Its key architectural feature plays off the role of a hat, by providing the desert site a cooler and greener environment for its office workers. This feature is a dual system that works as a massive ventilation system pulling in air from outside and venting it through the top of its cap, creating a breeze through out the building. The hats secondary function, acts as an energy collector utilizing thin film photovoltaic’s that are applied onto its surface. Eco Hat also aids from other systems that help the well being of its workers and environment. A louver system is incorporated to block any extra sunlight that penetrates through its skin to decrease the use of any extra air conditioning that might be needed in its hottest days. Heating and cooling are provided through out the building by means of base board heaters and air conditioned cooling ducts. Last, to limit the amount of green space consumed by the footprint of the hat, floor slabs of the office were pulled apart from each other allowing terrace area to be used as green spaces.

Flexible frame size locking

Team: John Alexa, Nick Christopher, Nick McFadden, Shai Sharabi, Maria Vera Program: Bike Rack Site: New York, NY Competition: City Rack Design {Entry} Duration: 1.5 Months Studio: verS M S L “The city that never sleeps” induces urbanites to flow through its fabric, at variant speeds, and in unsystematic ways. These characteristics prompted the team to define secure and functional city-racks, which dynamically respond to New York’s cityscape. By recognizing the bending possibilities inherent in the linear footage of one “Inverted – U” rack, the team identified a curvilinear unit that eases parking processes for cyclists, and can either be singularly deployed through narrow and busy sidewalks or assembled as a myriad of parts replacing the existing “Continuous Cure” rack. Similar to city signs, this proposal is an urban tool that accommodates quality parking for bikes and seamlessly engages within the infrastructure of the city as a plug-in for The fabrication process, based on a digitized set of drawings [CAD/CAM], provides instructional subway entries, sitting spots near supermarkets, bus stops, and configurations for a CNC tube-bending machine to produce a cost effective rack. The design calls for a twoin commonly used places like; museums, stadiums, and parks. inch machine bent round steel pipe coated with flame This proposal is an aggregate that simulates erratic urban retardant PVC additive. Three one inch diameter holes located along the vertical area of the curvilinear unit flows as it performs an array of services to support versatile accommodates various locking positions of different bicycle frames, and accepts conventional flexible locking modes of transportation that invigorates street life.

Hauer Casts

Team: John Alexa, Leif Chen, Mike Hance, Bona Kim, Seung-Hyun Kim Program: N/A Site: N/A Class: Digital Fabrication {Arch 571} Professor: Karl Daubman Duration: 3 Weeks This project uses the work of Erwin Hauer by microsampling his Continua Screens into new aggregate forms. Small pieces of his work were sampled and reconfigured by simple transformation techniques of copying, mirroring, and rotating. When casting these new Hauer inspired prototype forms, the CNC router was used to mill out foam pieces for a mold and were placed into a jig for casting to start. During the casting process we decided to reorient the mold pieces inside the jig to create different casts from the same pieces. From the initial first cast that was created, five other parts were cast from reconfiguring the mold pieces into different places in the jig. As a final ending to our project we worked on two different aggregate screens that were created from the process of casting multiple part variations. Since the final screens were a large makeup of parts and required multiple casting, we used the 3d printer and scaled them down into model form. These prints were used as conversation pieces on our final review about the direction we can take this work in the future. Erwin Hauer - Continua Screens Mold

Team: John Alexa, Leif Chen, Mike Hance, Bona Kim, Seung-Hyun Kim Program: N/A Site: N/A Class: Digital Fabrication {Arch 571} Professor: Karl Daubman Duration: 3 Weeks For this project we were required to make Japanese joinery Tabled Splice Joint fabricated out of 2x4s which were to be cut by a 3-axis CNC router and assembled in an array of ascending angles cut in plan and section. By doing this we were required to use the 3-axis CNC router as if it were a 5-axis CNC router. To make this jump from 3 to 5 axis we designed a jig that re-assembled itself when each of the different angles were needed to be cut, allowing for a total of 5 1 2 3 router passes to complete the project. And as a given 2x4 Assembly Router Passes concern to the project, the jig was also used as security device for holding the lumber in place as the router wove its way through the 2x4s. The Tabled Splice Joint was used as inspiration to the project and was redesigned to accommodate the use of the router and the different angles used in the project. Its hard right angles were eliminated from the joint due to the limitation of the router cutting 90 degree angles within the confined space of the jig.

Rest Stop?

Team: John Alexa, Ben Blacker, Brian DeBrun, Nick McFadden Program: Rest Stop Site: California Highway 99 Rest-Stop Class: Design {Arch 351} Duration: 1.5 months Professor: Shai Sharabi The highway system is a vascular system, a supplier of life, nutrition, economy and information. This system stretches across the land, connecting areas of dense and sporadic activity, broken only by the occasional mindless bathroom stop. The rest stop is an area where mobility and economic forces stop, where politics play little to no role, and where culture is thrown to the wind; but should it be this way? Why must the rest stop be a place where economy, culture, and technology cease to have useful meaning? Why can’t it be a place where these ideas are bred, harnessed, and examined by the public? A place where information is directed and introduced to the masses? We think it should be. The site for the GreenStop on route 99 is situated in the heart of California. Surrounded by farmland, the site itself is located in a very rural portion of the state, and it is, in a sense, a blank slate waiting to be designed, manipulated and justified. During the preliminary design phases we were asked to look at the highway system in general. We discussed issues dealing with movement of people, automobiles, and surplus, in regards to past present and future socioeconomic, political, and cultural patterns. The graphics to the right were taken from a study of large scale movement through the palace and gardens of Versaille. From this study we developed an understanding of direct pathways from major form to major form (red), major form to path (black), and path to path (yellow).

We began our research by formulating a word matrix that involved these ideas in combination with technology, the highway, and the environment. From these categories we branched off into subtopics in an effort to strengthen our understanding of these distinct yet unified subjects. We then developed a survey that was distributed to several of our colleagues and other individuals not affiliated with the design field. From these surveys we tallied and mapped our results into two categories, impact and relationship. After developing a series of charts that articulated our information, we condensed the data into a singe governing chart that was an overlay of both our final impact chart, and our final relationship chart. We projected the final chart on the GreenStop site, and from this imposition we developed an understanding of our circulation and general programmatic layout.

Team: John Alexa, Jennifer Williams and Yukon Xu Program: Skyscraper Site: Hong Kong, China Class: Design {2G3} Duration: 1.5 Months Professor: Clover Lee and David Erdman Stickiness This project calls for a departure from the traditional vertical tower circulation system to one that binds multiple towers together through a “stickiness” of horizontal circulation. The need for public hallways is mitigated when vertical circulation shafts are pulled away from the tower, stretching with them a part of each living unit: a tube. Although the tubes would be privately owned and occupied, their transparency enables visibility of others occupying or traversing through the tubes, from above and below, giving the project an effect of the escalator scene in Wong Karwais’ Chungking Express. The binding or “stickiness” between towers creates a compelling dichotomy between the private property of the tube and the public view into this space. The stickiness accommodates the tower with support of lateral loads and leaves the residential towers to provide only vertical load support, alleviating the need for sheer walls and permitting free façades. Stretching the unit away from the circulation corridor opens a second Private exterior façade on the entrance side of each unit. Chungking Express
