TASK b

After the study of numerous elderly housing, within Kingston, Jamaica, the task was to design an home for a family of five [5] with at least one person being termed ‘elderly’. The design was to take into consideration, accessibility if that person is disabled.

CONCEPT After the analysis of the various elderly homes, a design matrix was generated. This matrix sought to properly allocated the important spaces within a certain site or context. Having this in mind, the design should incooperate the ADA standards, while giving the look of a ‘home’. Simply put, the design should not appear to ‘trap’ the tenants, but yet, give enough space and feel of a genuine home, while infusing the ideas of the ADA. It is also imperative for the design to incorporate freedom not only inside, but outside as well. Research has shown that gardens and outdoors in general have helped the elderly to feel useful by grooming the gardens and keeping track of their surroundings and time, by the seasons.

In its simplest sense, these solar equipment converts light energy to electricity and in doing so, power the house and the heater for water. Generally, the panels are tilted at the same angle of latitude for the specific location to achieve its maximum potential. The only draw to these solar equipment is the initial cost factor, which is quite expensive. .

TASK

THE FORM

After the study of Georgetown, Guyana, the task was to design a cultural center. The design should take into consideration mashramani - Guyana’s carnvial- as well as the location of the side to the coast and the level the site is below sea level.

the foot print was first established to create a sense of openess and become welcoming. the buildings were then placed towards the eastern side to achieve this. Ventilation was an integral aspect to the guyanese climate, the foot print was shaped to and seperated to allow maximum ventilation. the form then began as an extrusion to the foot print. the shape was then tweeked to exaggerate the gentle slope of the site. to eveoke hardship and suffering, the building took on sharp and rigid edges, to emphasize this further, the materiality of the building should and will also reflect this notion.

CONCEPT guyana at present, although greatly appreciated for its heritage and architecture, is lost in the past. wilson harris, a guyanese cultural symbol, expresses his ideas in a new ‘ambitious and experimental’ ways, describing the experience of reality through imagination. this cultural center seels to be ambitious, with respect to guyana and what the world of architecture has to offer. experienceing this centre will seek to explore the realms of imagination through one of harris’ literary style; surrealism - releasing creative potential of the unconscious mind. this will be explored not only in form, but also site layout, spacial form. the idea behind the imagination is the topic of hardship and struggle. Guyana has been throughout the ages, plagues with struggles, whether economically, social or environmetal. this centre will be a symbol, depicting the guyanese determination to overcome.
