Bodies and Skins Arch 12B: Visual Comunications Fall 2010 Instructor: Neiel Norhiem


BODIES AND SKINS

Project Description By using a simple curve, we maniplate the control points to create comlex curves. With these complex cuves we generate a series of ‘skins’ that later become ‘bodies’ of smooth complexities. By using simple techniques, we are able to uncover complexities hidden within curves. Process The project began with the exploration of the different ways to manipulate lines. By rebuilding lines and using there CV’s, complex forms are generated with inverted qualitites. it begins with having a line at an axis point and performing all of the transformations in a controled environment.

Pan Pacific Park Kindergarten

PAN PACIFIC PARK SITE

THE GROVE

CBS Project Description: The purpose of this project was to intergrate a new program into an existing environment where residential and nonresidential zones collided. The purpose of the program was to benefit the park, and the residents that live around and near the park. The new program was a kindergarten that would intergrate the surrouding landscape to create a school derived entirely from surfaces.

BEVERLY BLVD. C

Process: The project started with researching the pedagogies of differnt schools and picking one that seemed to connect with our concept. The way we found our concepts was by finding the etymologies of kindergaten, reunio, and transition. By finding the roots of these words and connecting them, our concepts were formed. By using our concepts and different data from the site analysis, a bounding box was formed to outline the overall shape of what potentially can be the kindergarten

Site Analysis: The Pan Pacific park is located behind the Grove between the streets 3rd St. and Beverly Blvd. Located on the park is the Holocaust Museum and the Pan Pacific Auditorium. Surrounding the park on three of its four sides is nothing but residential homes, while on is fourth side lies owned propety of CBS. The park was a flat oil mining field that eventually got removed, and the park itself was excavated . There is a big flooding problem with the park, and not too many people visit the park.
