STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS:

CHURCH OF THE ORDER OF DISCALCED CARMELITES with Christina Nancy Zau


This structural analysis is a part of Cornell University’s architectural course requirements called Structural Systems. The model building requires patience through strenuous period of times. With a fellow colleague Christina Zau, the model was built to reveal the structural elements of the chosen project in Romania.

Digital fabrication was heavily used as well as hand crafting. CNC cutting the aluminum pieces, laser-cutting wood, and glulaminating the arches were three major challenges in this project. Required information was provided by the architect, Tudor Radulescu.

MATERIAL STUDY: TRANSPARENT LAYERS


INSTRUMENTAL ARCHITECTURE: MECHANICAL PUFFER FISH

HAND DRAWING WITH VICKY CHEN & YAO MI


Instrumental architecture project studies the behaviors of an animal (i.e. puffer fish) in a mechanical way to understand the dynamics of its movements. The research was focused on the “nesting”

habits of the fish in which the animal uses its “puffing” and spikes. The umbrella-like motion of a puffer fish carves the bottom of the ocean to create a suitable environment for reproduction and survival.

Seeking for new architecture within the bestial dynamics of this poisonous landscape architect is the goal of this study.


INSTRUMENTAL ARCHITECTURE: STUDY MODEL I

wires,springs, steel plates, & oak


This model is a reinterpretation of the mechanics of a puffer fish’s spikes. By adding keys to the spikes, one can interactively engage with the spikes to recreate the scraping motion.


This study model is the “reaction” of the first model. The scratches of various depths in this model corresponds from the carving “action” of the Study Model I

INSTRUMENTAL ARCHITECTURE: PUFFER FISH PARK

walnut, basswood, & steel wires


Puffer Fish Park is the result of this research Instrumental Architecture. The collage of the two study models created space beneath grade as a potential design for a public park.

Situated next to a cliff, Puffer Fish Park is an observatory, a shelter, and a playground. The visitors may take the ramp from the top of the cliff into the park.

Inside the park is an oasis offering a cool temperature. The canopy spreading over the roof varies its length to control sunlight and privacy.


PRECEDENT STUDY: HOUSE IN MALLORCA BY ALVARO SIZA

chipboard & steel rods


House in Mallorca by Alvaro Siza is consisted of “rotating blocks� on a hill facing the ocean. The pivot points of the rotation lie on the main line of circulation which is he span of the steel rods. The rotation of the blocks on the ter-

rain makes the blocks collide with the site or with each other. This motion shapes the cubes into new blocks by chipping the corners away. Then the blocks are layered to create floor and density in the architecture.


Through the study of coal mines and tipples, this model show the sub-terrain layers and the beauty of them in a collapsed surface. The structural walls left undug to hold the mine up become

screens, making the layers denser, like the screens that separate coals. The tipple tower when raising up the layers reveal the movement of coal ores through the mine and the tipple.


PRECEDENT SYNTHESIS: CREMATORIUM PERSEPHONE


CREMATORIUM PERSEPHONE:

This family crematorium design is based on the previous precedent synthesis. The layers of screens from the coal mine is now oriented horizontally over rotating segments that collide. Submerged in a sloped orchard facing a lake, Crematorium Persephone offers the family of the deceased a place for procession, congregation, and memorabilia.

The family goes through the entrance towards the pool where they can sprinkle the ash of the dead. Then they assemble at the dining room where the ceremony is proceeded. The grave-columns outside the supper room at the courtyard record the names of the deceased. On the way back, the family leaves the urn at the entrance/exit.

ENTRANCE

This space is also a space of meditation. The watchtower looks out to the lake which is often visually blocked by the retaining wall. Also, the memorabilia column that holds water for the reflection of your face is placed at a discreet corner of the cemetery. This column is connected to the grave-columns by a small waterway.

ARCHITECTURE MUSEUM: INTERSECTING WALLS

chipboard & plastic


Intersecting Walls is an architecture museum located at the corner of Jones St. and Lombard St. in San Francisco. Using five different walls as parameters, the museum offers diverse experience to the visitors at each intersection of the walls.

The structural wall holds up the park above that acts as an entrance. The soundproof wall provides more intimate moments with the architectural works. The layered glass walls diffuses the light from the light well to create an ambiance. Finally, the hanging walls

act as curtains to indicate a space beyond the walls. These walls extrude beyond the famous sloped surface of Lombard St area to offer a public park where the citizens can rest and meet.


ARCHITECTURE MUSEUM: INTERSECTING WALLS Intersecting Walls

The intersection of walls in a carved space at the corner of Jones St. and Lombard St. creates an architectural museum. The five different types of walls serve various purposes such as defining programs, structural elements, and different height experiences.

ORTHOGONAL REINVENTION: FULL HOUSE

BOATHOUSE+LIGHTHOUSE+POWERHOUSE


Located at the end of Cayuga Inlet in Ithaca, this architecture replaces the old, solitary lighthouse at a spectacular location. Separated from the touch of mankind, Full House accommodates a community boathouse, a solar powerhouse, and a lighthouse.

The ground opaque is a boat shed where rowing boats are stored. The upstairs glass box is a large gym for athletes which could be converted into a banquet hall for events such as a wedding. The tower is the new lighthouse that will shine Cayuga Lake at night.

The architecture uses the color of white from the original inlet lighthouse to create a shining icon in the area where every axis of the building serves the community. This floating structure is considered type II-A and designed accordingly to IBC and the Ithaca building codes.
