John M. Nuttmann Architecture Portfolio


I begin the process of most of projects with sketching. Sketching allows me to fully explore all my visual ideas in a rapid freehand method, which serves to completely document and exhaust all of my design concepts. This process allows me to communicate my ideas clearly, and it allows collaborators to see a range of design proposals from which they can derive their own inspiration and conclusions. I then take the sketches and apply technical modeling skills to further develop the design process. That allows my initial design concepts to grow into realizations. As I learn and experiment with new skill sets, I apply them to further develop my own strategies for design and application. I am committed to continually advancing my technical modeling skills to ensure that my design intentions are not limited by lack of program knowledge. The following work in this portfolio illustrates an exploration of strategy and technique in the resolution of design problems in architecture throughout my undergraduate studies.

Program

Initial planning included a public medical clinic, camper’s quarters, and facilities for staff and campers. All buildings would use limited electricity.

Site Plan - Section A

Camper’s Quarters

Considering the Internal Temperature

The project focus shifted from site planning to complete design of one of the buildings in the camp. This project continued with the design of the camper’s quarters (2).

The green roof, the reflection pond, and the construction of the quarters into the hill all play a role in creating a lower interior temperature.

Concealment: A Camp That Feels Like A Camp

A green roof and reflection pond are incorporated on top of the quarters to blend the structure into the site’s landscape and the lake in the distance. This is most prevalent from the view at the main facilities (3).

Project 02 GT Learning Center

Designing a student center in the middle of the older Georgia Tech East Campus involves considering both the historical aesthetic of the surrounding brick buildings as well as the school’s desire to incorporate a technology aesthetic into the campus landscape. In Collaboration With:

Timeline Inspiration

Inspired by the site’s location in the historical east campus, the image of a timeline rotated and fitted into the building site inspired the initial form and circulation.

Views to the City and Campus

Views influence the circulation direction and the height of the corner towers. The spaces adjacent to these elements are offset to enhance them.

Project 03

Une Perspective de l’Artiste

How would an artist, without any architectural experience, approach designing a structure with the same principles of their artwork? How would Marcel Duchamp design? Duchamp was part of the Dada ‘antiart’ movement. He wanted his work to create a visual and intellectual experience for the viewer. A large portion of his work was with word play, specifically with creating puns that accompanied his sculptures. The pairing of puns and art allowed the viewer to create their own experience through their interpretation of the sculpture, their understanding of the pun, and their combination of the two. Île-de-France Region Rue de l’Hotel Dieu Chars, France

Indifference and Site Selection

Dieu

Selected Site in Chars

“The great problem was the act of selection. I had to pick an object without the least intervention of any idea or suggestion of aesthetic pleasure.” - Marcel Duchamp

An Alternate Reality: Chars Aid

Duchamp used the pun to revitalize the alchemy of words. He believed it opened the viewer’s mind to a more intellectual interaction. The streets and town name transformed into puns to create an alternate setting that Duchamp would use to design. ex. Rue de la Gloriette = You Delay Glory Yet

A Rue de Gisors

The Path Becomes the Plan

eM

Duchamp considered chance to be a strong element of his work. Chance or random actions to him were decided by the universe, and a decision made by universe, and not the artist, was considered anti-art. The path below represents my route through the town which became the site plan.

The process began with taking basic architecture vocabulary and turning them into puns, taking into consideration homonyms and word etymology. With the architectural terms and street names forming a language, it was possible to associate similarities and pair terms to locations on the path (defined below). Words and sketches turned into structure and form. ex. Cantilever = Cant (a bevel) - Til (suffix for until ) - E (the 5th in a sequence) - Ver (short for version, or specific view)

G13

“A beveled cantilever at the 5th point in a sequence, with a specific view’
