Kinematics First Year Design Studio Professor Kathryn Strand Kinematics Study Expansion | Extension


Extension of Movement and Transformation Processes A fragment of the initial cube was transformed by a crumpling process along a falling path of movement. The kinematic process is shown through the model, which incorporates all of the movements of the fragment from the ďŹ rst to last transformation. To study the path of a falling mass, a plastic bag was dropped out of a window and photographed at intervals until it reached the ground. Similar to a collage of the bag falling, the perspective drawing incorporates the collage motif by showing the falling movement on the bottom layer and the crumpling movement on the top.

Biophilic Pavilion Second Year Design Studio Professor Jason Turnidge Architecture with Nature Downtown Kent, Ohio


Biophilia Through Expansion and Contraction of Environmental Conditions The Biophilic Pavilion in downtown Kent is a research institution that encourages an intimate interaction with nature and the environment. Imitating how materials expand and contract with weather changes, the spaces expand and contract due to the human needs of the building.

biophilia - n - a hypothetical human tendency to interact or be closely associated with other forms of life in nature

The design was achieved through the use of the modeling software Rhinoceros, by sectionally altering one form in order to create the appearance of a structure that stretches and condenses. The program and organization of spaces was developed through text diagrams discussing activities and their connection through different programs. This layout also carries through to the changing of spaces.

Recreation Center Second Year Design Studio Professor Gregory Stroh Analeptic Regeneration CWRU Cleveland, Ohio


Generating Activity Level Through Spatial Experience The Cleveland Recreation and Cultural Center on the Case Western Reserve Campus is aimed at recreation, recovery, repair and regeneration. The program was arranged by energy levels required for the activity occuring in the space. Three separate hubs of activity are identiďŹ ed and separated through the design. The complexity in the arrangement of space and facades gradually decreases as the user progresses from the animated street to the opposite, calm side of the building.

The idea of the surrounding environment having an impact on the activity levels of users in the space comes from research that is investigating analeptic stimulation as a tool for regeneration.

MediathequĂŠ Third Year Design Studio Professor Paola Giaconia Urban Connection Florence, Italy


Elevating the Piazza The Fortezza Da Basso is an important surviving historical structure of Florence, but the space is rarely used; it functions only as a private event space, rather than a public piazza. The mediathequé is a solution that will break down the privacy created by the massive walls through a raised public space on the interior. The mediathequé will act as a base for a piazza space that allows views to and from the historic city center and the surrounding hills in order to restore the Fortezza as a public center in Florence. In the development of the project, a major concern was the placement of the new structure in relationship with the existing conglomeration of buildings as well as the massive walls blocking views into the space. The end mediathequé placement materialized as a result of the chosen site currently acting as a piazza-esque space for the Fortezza.

Fourth Year Design Studio Professor Joseph Ferut Integrated Office Design Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Creating a Gallery to Showcase Pittsburgh The Integrated Design Competition is an internal partner competition in the ďŹ nal semester of the undergraduate architecture degree at Kent State University. The partners work with one professor supervisor, four professor advisors, one technical support personnel, and three professional consultants (structural, mep, and electrical). The aim of the project goes from site selection, to system selection, to complete design of the building and all of the elements in one semester.

Fall Site Shading

The site is located in the cultural district of Pittsburgh, facing the Allegheny River. Four sites were proposed and as a team, we selected site C, which sits on the east corner of the conceptually developed Behnisch Master Plan. The end result was a 200,000 sf ofďŹ ce building, with prime tenant space, speculative tenant space, an x-factor (community art center) and service areas.

The concept of the ofďŹ ce building was to create a place that celebrates the culture, buildings, landscapes, and citizens of Pittsburgh through the building x-factor, design, and primary tenant. Pittsburgh can boast of being a leader in sustainable design, a place of successful sports teams and a city with a thriving arts district, all of which can be displayed in this building. The views helped develop the form of the floors, allowing the user to experience scenes of the rivers, mountains, and bridges the building is immersed within. The X-factor was developed as a community art center to allow for cultural programs throughout the day for seniors, adults and children, providing gallery and performance spaces for their creations. The corten steel mesh on the facade not only speaks to the sustainable nature of shading, but also the steel industry that is a large part of Pittsburgh’s history.

Flat Lot Competition Graduate Design Studio P Professor rofessor Diane Diane e Davis-Sikora Daviis-Sikora T Temporality emporality Flint, F lint, Michigan Michigan


Blacktop AtTIRE: Local and Deployable Techniques The Flint Flat Lot Competition is an existing design competition to create a temporary structure for activities in downtown Flint, Michigan. The main goal of ‘Blacktop Attire’ is to create a structure within the budget of $25,000 that has significance to the city, while incorporating new techniques and readily available materials into the design. The city of Flint, the birthplace of the car company GM, is currently a shrinking city. This has left an abundance of old tires lying around brownfields and abandoned sites waiting to be recycled. Tires can be manipulated in numerous ways, and for the purposes of temporality, the tires were detreaded and arranged in accordion framed modules to fit in 8 parking spaces when not deployed. Although the developed tire structures can collapse to fit into a minimal space, when these are deployed, they can be arranged to provide coverage for a majority of the parking lot. Rhinoceros and Grasshopper were used to create the accordion structures that have many stages of deployment using a script to array the tires within the scope of the aluminum framing.

MatR Project Workshop and Fabrication Brandon Clifford + Wes McGee Voronoi Study Kent Campus


Surface vs. Volume: Responding to a Site A singular surface can create a multitude of volumes. This project sets out to explore this relationship through the use of a voronoi structure. Before a site was chosen, the voronoi concept was introduced using Rhino with Grasshopper on a basic egg shape. By creating an inner continuous shape and a larger outer shape, the Grasshopper script will distinguish regions and interpolate curves based on control points at the edge of each region. The script will then apply center points to each curve and extrude the inner curves to the outer point and vice versa. The end result is the interconnection of both shapes through the cones, which are then trimmed to create a circular meeting point between inner and outer. These ‘cones’ can be unrolled into flat surfaces and constructed out of a sheet material, which when assembled will create a 3D volumetric structure. The site chosen was based on a limited area of the Kent State University front campus. Kent State University has been named Tree Campus USA and has a Tree Sponsorship program, which protects and recognizes trees on campus. The voronoi structure acts as a base to not only bring attention to the tree, but also serve as a barrier between pedestrians and the tree. Additionally, to show the strength of the voronoi, the structure lifts off the ground at some points to respond to the topography of the hill.

Pittsburgh PArk Hostel Graduate Design Studio Professor Gregory Stroh Stability vs. Perishability Strip District, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Programming for the Temporary and Permanent Residents of Pittsburgh The Strip District in Pittsburgh is a diverse neighborhood displayed by the users and also by the changing activities that occur within its bounds. Applying the basic notion of stability and instability within cities and how these affect the cultural relationships creates an interesting dialogue in regards to displaying a sense of order economically or politically. The Strip District is extremely vibrant for only certain periods of the day; a fact known by residents, but unknown by tourists who, if visiting in the evening would view the area as under-utilized and unstable. Through programming and gaining the user perspective through interviews with residents, city planners, and tourists, the goal of the project is to create a destination for not only permanent residents, but temporary visitors that promotes social and cultural exchange in the seemingly unstable regions of Pittsburgh. The mixed use project chosen is initially a Hostel, to house temporary visitors, but other elements of the program allow the residents of Pittsburgh equal access to the building, as well as to cultural exchanges with non-residents. A concert venue and library is introduced as a permanent element with ever changing activities and guests, blurring the line between perishable activities and stable permanence. All spaces are designed in order to be freely changed to match the user-determined activity.
