ARCHITECTURE PORTFOLIO JESSICA LONGHURST


ABOUT JESSICA

Going through the process of design and methodically coming to new conclusions is what I strive to accomplish in the realm of Architecture. I want to challenge myself and experiment with all aspects of design including materiality, structure, and environmental situations. Continual learning and process work are the keys to successful design development. Therefore, I am searching for an opportunity as an intern to grow as an designer and achieve this success.

HUDSON RIVER TRANSVERSE SECTION

To understand and incoporate the urban fabric of Manhattan the form references the diagonal cut of Broadway. The angle of Broadway significantly disrupts the normal city block in a continous manner in many locations throughout the fabric of Manhattan. The exterior walls reflect the regularity of the grid iron, while the interior walls reflect the disruption of the diagonal Broadway cut.

STUDENT LOUNGE AND RENDERING LAB


REAL-WORLD APPLICATION: Build & DesignVR VRLOUNGE Lounge ROOM 257 IN LEE HALL, CLEMSON UNIVERSITY

WHITEBOARD WALL AND CHARGING STATIONS

VR GREEN SCREEN

DRILL-LESS FURNITURE

The intent of the our Build and Design studio was to create an interactive space for students to lounge, use new technology specific to architecture, and collaborate with peers. All furniture and installations were created using the sim(ply) methodŠ. With this technique, the CNC router produced components of furniture that could be put together with only metal zip-ties. One specific piece of furniture focused on was the Augmented Reality Sandbox. Students can use a Kinect sensor to interact with live topographical maps projected on the sand the box contains. This will allow students to consider the topography and landscape surrounding their project site in a more in-depth approach.

PERSPECTIVE VIEW

EAST PERSPECTIVE VIEW

In order to incorporate the sight and the views associated with a mountainscape, the process of ruled surfaces was implemented. Four dominant straight lines were placed to create an arch. This arch frames the view of the “mountainscape.” The framed view also creates a lookout area where people can leisurely observe and take in the natural beauty.

REAL-WORLD APPLICATION: “WHERE EARTH MEETS SKY�

Real-World application comes into play in regards to the fabrication and process work prior to the final model. In order to test out new materiality, I incorporated concrete into my design process. To create the contour and slope seen in the topography of the site model, a CNC router was used. The router milled out a mold in order for me to pour concrete and create my process models.

POOL NOODLE STUDY

STRAW STUDY

Straws as a materiality acts as a filter to incoming light. The harsher light in the middle of the day filters through the straws to create an illuminating feature. The areas with denser straw placements leads to a stronger illumination of light by trapping the light in. The less-dense areas finely filter the light and give a directional path to follow.

AYSYMMETRICAL HAND DRAWING

Lines have the ability to connect and create warped and intriguing spaces. Whether you go about a ruled surface in a more geometric approach or incorporate curved lines, the end result will create a new, ingenuitive surface. The shadows that can result from ruled surfaces can also be quite inspiring.

WIREFRAME STUDY

WIREFRAME FINAL

WIREFRAME STUDY

The boolean process truly is “shapes carving shapes.” Throughout this assignment, students were told to think about the boolean process as a knife cutting a block of cheese. Simply put, it is the idea of negative space being created through the removal of positive space. The arrangement of basic geometric shapes can create new environments and spaces for its inhabitants.

CONCEPTUAL DESIGN: FOLDED COLUMN STRUCTURE FOLDED PLATE STUDY

FINAL FOLD PATTERN Paper folding is an ingenuitive process that tends to lead to new designs while challenging the typical drafting method. Paper folding is much simpler when approaching it horizontally. However, when studying origami in regards to vertical lines, long and elegant designs can be crafted. Strong vertical and diagonal “valleys” and “mountains” are what led to my final column design.

ITERATION 3

This ellipse study taught the concept of iterations and how to have a constantly evolving design process . The importance of repetition and continous addition to design is necessary for extraordinary results. The more steps involved in the design process, the more methodical the end result will be.
