VERNACULAR ECHO CHAMBER

- A CALLIOPE IS A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT THAT USES STEAM POWER TO PRODUCE MUSIC. HOW CAN AN ARCHITECTURE INVERT THIS PHENOMENON BY USING MUSIC TO PRODUCE ENERGY? - CALLIOPE HOUSE IS A IRISH JIG TUNE IN 6/8 TIME. T HIS TUNE SERVES AS A CALL TO THE DANCERS WHOM FORM A RHYTHMICAL PATTERN OF JUMPING IN IT'S RESPONSE. BY CREATING A REACTIVE DANCEFLOOR THIS ARCHITECTURE, FUNCTIONS IN A VERY SIMILAR WAY TO THAT OF A DIAPHRAGM AND A SET OF LUNGS. BY UTILIZING THE ENERGY PRODUCED FROM THE DANCERS JUMPING, PRESSURE IS DISPLACED BY THE DANCE-FLOOR AND USED TO HARNESS ENERGY. IN THIS SPIRIT THE BUILDING IS A DIRECT RESPONSE TO ENERGY PRODUCING AND ENERGY CONSERVING ELEMENTS OF THE SITE. - ALLOWING FOR MISTAKES IN THE DESIGN PROCESS TO YIELD NEW PORTALS OF INFORMATION CONCERNING BUILDING PERFORMANCE.

SCYLLA CHARYBDIS LIVE/WORK ?

- HOW CAN AN ARCHITECTURE EXPOSE THE PATHOLOGY OF THE AMERICAN WORK /COMMUTE PARADIGM IN ATTEMPTS TO SUBVERT ITS GRATER DEPENDENCY ON THE OIL USED TO FUEL THIS EPOCH. - SYMBIOTICALLY REPRESENT HOW THE AUTOMOBILE CIRCULATING THROUGHOUT THE CITY ERODES ITS BUILDINGS. THIS PROCESS IS SIMILAR TO RIVER BOULDERS. THE BOULDERS REPRESENTING BUILDINGS AND THE RIVER REPRESENTING THE RE LOCALIZED CIRCULATION OF FOOT PATHWAYS. 1

- CONDENSATION: ONE OBJECT STANDS FOR SEVERAL ASSOCIATIONS AND IDEAS. UNDERSTANDING THIS IT IS EASIER TO GAIN MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES WITHIN THE SAME CONDENSED NARRATIVE.

OURVEZ LA PORTE WORLD EXHIBITION ?

- HOW TO DRAW MORE PERSONS TO THIS EXHIBITION SPACE THAN COMPETITION - MCDONALDS MUSEUM: FIGURED THE BEST WAY TO KILL SOMETHING IS TO PUT IT IN A MUSEUM. ENTICE CUSTOMERS BY USING SAME MCDONALDS MARKETING MODEL THAT ACCRUED 100 BILLION BURGERS SOLD. - THE ROOT OF THE WORD CORPORATION IS CORPUS MEANING: BODY. FROM THIS I LEARNED HOW CORPORATION EXPLOIT BODILY SUBCONSCIOUS DRIVES IN-ORDER TO PUSH THEIR PRODUCT. THESE VULNERABILITIES ARE EXPOSED AND RECONFIGURED TO FIT CONTEMPORARY BUSINESS MODELS THROUGH THE CONDUIT OF CLASSICAL MYTHOLOGY.

METAL MACHINE MOTHER RESIDENCE ?

- HOW CAN MAPPING BE USED AS A TOOL TO FIND KINETIC ENERGY ON THE SITE AND HARNESS THAT ENERGY FOR A THE TRANSFORMATION OF A EXTREME DWELLING GERARD TOWARDS FREE DIVING. - THE OCEAN'S ASSOCIATION WITH FREE DIVING AND HOW TIDAL PATTERNS ARE CLOSELY RELATED TO LUNAR AND SOLAR FREQUENCIES. - BY VIEWING MAPPING OF MY OWN BODILY FUNCTIONS AS A MECHANICAL PROCESS, MY PERCEPTION OF THE WORLD AROUND ME WAS RETARDED TO ADOPT THE PACE OF NATURE. THIS TAUGHT ME HOW TO TRANSFORM THE SITE’S NATURAL SURROUNDINGS TO THE ARCHITECTURE'S MAXIMUM BUILDING PERFORMANCE.

CRACKED LOOKING GLASS BATH HOUSE - HOW TO INCORPORATE FIVE SENSORY EXPERIENCES INTO A DIVERSE ARCHITECTURAL PROGRAM RANGING FROM HOTEL TO SWIMMING TO MARKET TO PUBLIC PARK.

DN

- THE WORD SYNESTHESIA, MEANING: A SENSATION PRODUCED IN ONE MODALITY WHEN A STIMULUS IS APPLIED TO ANOTHER MODALITY. THIS CAN BE TRANSLATED IN THE LAYERING OF A ARCHITECTURAL PROGRAM WHERE A MARKET (SMELL) CAN HOVER OVER A POOL (TOUCH) AND FUSE WHEN FRUIT FROM MARKET FALLS INTO POOL AND CREATE TASTE.

DN

- THE GRID ASSOCIATE EACH PROGRAMMATIC EXPERIENCE WITH A DIFFERENT SENSORY EXPERIENCE. AS THE GRID BECOMES MORE COMPLEX WITH MORE CATEGORIES THE ARCHITECTURE BECOMES MORE COMPLEX.

BIKE PARK ?

PARKING STRUCTURE

- HOW TO CREATE ARCHITECTURE TO SUBVERT AMERICAN DEPENDENCY ON THE AUTOMOBILE BY CREATING ARCHITECTURE GEARED TOWARDS THE AUTOMOBILE. - GASOLINE IS USED AS THE FORCE OF ENERGY TO ASCEND THE PARKING GARAGE. PARTICIPANTS ARE GIVEN THE OPTION OF A FREE BIKE SHARE TO CIRCULATE THE CITY. BY OFFERING THIS OPTION FOR FREE AND CREATING A UNIQUE CIRCULATION FOR THE BIKE PATH’S DESCENT PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO SEE THE JOY’S OF BIKING SAN FRANCISCO. - DISCIPLINE IN NEEDING TO ACCOUNT FOR EVERY VERTICES IN A PROGRAM THAT IS NOT GEARED TOWARDS WHIMSICAL FORM MAKING.

?

HOW DOES THE MOVEMENT IN LATIN AMERICAN LITERATURE KNOW AS MAGICAL REALISM TRANSLATE INTO THE LANGUAGE OF THEIR BUILT ENVIORNMENT? LOOKING THROUGH THE HISTORY OF LATIN AMERICAN ARCHITECTURE, FROM PRE COLUMBIAN, TO THE TOP DOWN MODERNISM MOVEMNT OF NIEMEYER AND MARXX, ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM UP DESIGNS OF THE FAVELAS OF RIO DE JANIERO WHAT ROLE DOES ARCHITECTURE PLAY IN EMPOWERING OR CONTROLING THE INHABITANTS OF EACH OF THESE PERIODS? THROUGH THE COMPERISON OF PRIMARY SOURCES SUCH AS BORGE’S FICCIONES AND NERUDA’S ALTURAS DE MACHU PICCHU TO THE SECONDARY ESSAYS OF ZAMORA AND FARRIS’ MAGICAL REALISM : THEROY, HISTORY, AND COMMUNITY. THE MOVEMENT INTRODUCED HOW UNREALISTIC CONCEPTS APPEAR IN A REALISTIC FRAMWORK SO AS TO EMPOWER THE READER INTO A CURIOSITY TO QUESTION THE WORLD AROUND THEM. NOTHING EXISTS WITHIN ITSELF AND THAT EPIC NARRITIVE IS A DIRECT ECHO OF OUR ANCESTORS RUINS.
