Live The residency provides viewers to freely move between different floors designated to either exhibits or shops that all exemplify different ways to understand the process of the manufactured incubation. The space dedicated to apartments are not necessary for those who work in the building but for others in the city as well. The shift of floor plates is used to allow maximum daylighting on the top floors that are inhabited for the residents.

Work As someone who is specifically interested in finding ways that are more energy efficient in fabricating clothes in terms of machinery and the type of methods to fabricate eco-friendly products, the opportunity to work in such a vast space proves beneficial (manufacturing incubator). Kendall-Energy includes its own research labs and workshop spaces which allows the start-ups to have space to grow with knowledge as well as utilize the resources Kendall-Energy offers. The use of carving into the site is justified because it maximizes the warehouse-like space as well as keeping the fluid form that was originated from annual sun analysis. The cylinder-like aspect of the site is dedicated to mainly offices and workshops for the incubator space that is connected with the basement incubator space.

Play In addition to the chemists and retailersĘź working and living, visitors will be able to visit the center. Gallery/museums spaces are provided to exhibit the process of moving to a greener direction in fabrication. The final products can also be showcased in the retail shops. Moreover, a lecture hall is designed to host viewers to allow the opportunity to for further understanding of the fabrication series. The use of ramps are used to help engage viewers into the site as well as easing the circulation throughout the site.

Design Having the site be situated in Shoreditch, London, one of the most prominent aspects of this site was the exterior art detailing found on the facades. With much research, we begin to notice that the interior spaces do not interact with the overground. Being such an artistic cultural hub, Shoreditch is lacking a potential place where art is emphasized through publicized and privatized spaces rather than just have the art on display within the walls of the streets in Shoreditch. The non-decorate shed essentially becomes what the community needs and is proposed to be a mixed-used building, specifically to help appreciate the art community of Shoreditch. Architectural appliqué (graffiti) becomes prominent in which looking at the graffiti, it becomes apparent that they are a sign of direction or simply art that becomes part of the buildingsʼ identity. Given that Shoredtich is filled with many directed sheds, the idea of non-decorated shed has surfaced. Non-decorated shed is defined to be an act as a space that needs no sign that the architecture should speaks for itself. The different between non-decorated shed and the Duck is that it doesnʼt necessarily replicates what is supposed to be, where the space isnʼt determined by the program. The overground is a significant object that interacts with the entirety of the site however, it is not emphasized within the existing interiors. Accentuating the overground in order for it to become the new facade of Shoreditch, the spaces around infrastructure has become completely redesign for the non-decorated shed.

The design of this project has strayed away from the structure of arches to completely isolate the infrastructure from the rest of the interior spaces, and the columns were used excessively throughout the new design. Essentially the design is a four-faced glass facade to allow for it to have the aspect of being in an enclosure spaces, however using the columns to create a type of open colonnade within the space. From this, programmatic spaces are shifted to allow this ideology where people can experience the process of how art is made and then brought into the galleries (which are on the top floor after the roof level). The programmatic spaces are shifted within different height levels to allow for this to happen as well as are divided into two different spaces: mechanical and conventional art spaces (which mechanical requires more heavy machinery). Following a strict grid, floor plates and solids/voids of programs are placed within the open colonnade structurally within the grid. Also, the greenhouses were incorporated as a food supply for the restaurant situated at the basement floor, where people can also experience the process of produce, cooking, distributing, and disposing of the food. Since the whole facade is double-glazed, the whole space acts as a “greenhouse.” However, to be more specific, there are two different types of greenhouses: LED greenhouse in the basement (which grows the food for the restaurant) and the greenhouse above on the roof).

a Daylighting With such a vast site, the farm was designed to be situated on the South-East end of the course. It was decided due to an abundance of reasons. The design then is allowed more control of wind due to the scarce of trees as well as it is topographly on plain terrain. With the layout of programs, the greenhouse and farm gets the most sun throughout the year. The use of the louvers were tested in the rendering above to show how shadows and light start to effect the spaces in regards to keeping farm the center of the whole design model.

b 2-in-1 Similar to the Rem KoolhaasĘź Villa Bordeaux project, there are specific moments in the design proposal where people in Program A can experience Program B without having to be in two different spaces. To clarify, in this rendering, one perceives this space to be a banquet hall with the seating area and the ballroom. However, the floor plates of this space is shifted to allow the those in the kitchen (beneath the seating area) to be able to experience the dancing and other activity that may occur in the ballroom. To further the idea of allowing people to understand the process of [obtain resource-produce-distribute-eat-dispose], materiality as well as floor plates are changed and shifted to allow people to experience the process even if they are not the ones par-taking in the actions.

c Space Accommodation With the strong use of ramps throughout the ĘťuniversalĘź site to assist with those who have disability, it is accounted that the program starts to be shifted around. The entrance of the building is then accessed through under a ramp as well as private office rooms were then placed throughout the ramps. Moreover, the farm also is slanted downards in a ramp-like structure to also allow it to be accessible for those in wheelchairs. With ADA being an crucial drive to this specific design, louvers are used to control wind and smell amongst the programs to propel people in certain directions.

Design Proposed in West Chelsea, New York, the bed and breakfast project will provide a place where tourists coming to see NYĘźs populated High Line a place to enjoy the views of and much more of the Chelsea district. Being in an urban setting, the sides of the site were completely idle due to existing buildings. Therefore, using a free facade (based off of a grid marked by where significant parts of the city are). The role of the elevator and the balcony in this specific urban project is morphed to allow maximum sunlight in as well as have views of the city. Since the site has only two facades where light reaches, one proposes to allow light come through a skylight of the entire building, where the balconys on each floor shifts to allow light to shine through as well as giving each floor an unique blueprint. The elevator acts as the core that runs through each floor despite the shifting of balconys amongst the floor plates. Having the drastic change of floor plan from the first to the second level is because the High Line starts where the first level ends, allowing vistors to walk onto the site without leaving the High Line.

Design Water is perceived as another type of architecture topography. With two parts to a project, we worked with sister piers in both NYC and Rotterdam. Using this urban development as a prototype for further developments projects that work on water. Using the same type of idea (programmatic bridge and floaters) to rethink water by extending waterfront outwards (NY) or by revitalizing the canals to programmatically create a sense of community (Rotterdam). Focusing on both the harder and softer developments for each site- the NYC project emphasized on the idea of ecology and using the bridge as a barrier to create a consistent ĘťlandscapeĘź within the barrier for the harder developments. On the other hand, Rotterdam uses the bridge to continue cruise trading as well as use the floaters (divided by wedges) as a residencial development within itself.
