A02 PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This project

developed from the implementation of the previous thirds parti mentioned in the Maision Bordeaux project. The project was to develop a gallery and archive space for the work of John Hejduk. With a site that is a void between two buildings, and acts as memorial space known a the Judengang. It marks the funeral procession for the Jewish citizens buried in the Judischer Friedhof Schonhauser Cemetery. This space is currently gated and only opens once a year in order to allow for memorial passage. Inspired by John Hejduk’s Wall House projects, and their connection to movement through time we designed a memorial that examined the connection to time with the archive space being the past, the present being the circulation and the gallery spaces being the future that reflected on the past by over looking the cemetery. All work done in partnership with Nathan Krueger. A01: Site model and site extents, built with entire class at 1/16”=1’ scale. 4. Lapidorium: 1. Kathe Kollwitz Statue 2. North Gate of Judengang

MAISON BORDEAUX PRECEDENT STUDY

C01

C02 PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This

project worked as an analysis of Rem Koolhaas’s Maison Bordeaux, and as a precedent study for the following project. The study broke down the house based on elements and additive and subtractive operations. This was done through a series of models, drawings, and animations in order to understand a single house parti. This parti captures the essence of Maison Bordeaux. The parti is that everything within the house can be broken down into sets of three. This is created through the light wells that signify entry, and signify a mass void mass relationship. These voids also divide both plan and section. In plan it is used to divide orthographic and curvilinear volumes, and in section it is used to divide the housing masses. C01: Assembled physical model depicting division of building masses built at 1/8”=1’ scale. C02: Partially assembled physical model depicting separated masses and vertical circulation elements built at 1/8”=1’ scale. C03: Assembled physical model with interchangeable building masses to show interactions of vertical circulation with building spatial elements and the cantilevered third floor mass built at 1/8”=1’ scale.

D03 PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This

project progressed as a method of observing constructional labor through methods of digital modeling and image production. It examined the historic methods used by Eladio Deieste and his team during the construction of gaussian vaulted structures. The progression of this project worked through the composition of two image types. The first being stationary images isolating both the construction, and the workers. The second dynamic images depicting the movement of workers and construction equipment, the enconfrado (movable scaffold system). D01: TEM Factory construction image 1 D02: TEM Factory construction image 2 D03: TEM Factory construction image 3 D04: Image type one, images isolating both the construction and laborers involved. Work done in partnership with Nathan Krueger and Drew Doyle.

E03 PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This project developed through as a translation of key constructional observations from the Agricultural Heritage Museum, kit of parts, hidden structure, and the manufactured module of the brick, to the historic First Avenue night Club in Minneapolis. It worked through the examination of Revit by misusing the tool in the four methods, and the implementation of an external construction detail. This project explored the precisions of SOM’s Amiee 1.0 3D printed construction in order to formulate a 6,000 sq. ft. addition that is constructed using methods that are as precise as digital modeling allowing it to perform with the same level of precision. E01: 3D printed physical building module designs at 1/32”=1’ E02: Model Image depicting modules stacked in unison. E03: Arched door way depicting a method of travel between modules.

JOSEPH C. KENNY Statement of Intent SOUTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY Brookings, SD: Fall 2020 Masters of Architecture Internal Applicant

Dear Acceptance Committee, When sitting down and asking myself why I would like to continue my education, I arrived at three reasons. The first being, I would like to learn more about where my interests lie in order to come up with a better understanding of where I would like to push my career interests. The second reason is to continue on the path of education that will give me the most career options upon graduation. The final being continuing my education in a environment that both enhances and facilitates the learning of my interests in order to push my studies. I have narrowed my interests to construction processes, and fabrication, alongside with teaching, but I am uncertain of which path would provide more gratification. I am originally from Schaller, Iowa, a small town in north west Iowa. I grew up on a farm where every day work varied day in and day out, but always included hands on building and maintenance of objects that varied in size, material, and function. It was this day in and day out hands on work that influenced my interest in the construction and building arts. My interest in hands on building drove me to pursue a career in architecture by studying at here at South Dakota State University. This curriculum pushes hands on process that is generally focused on the advancements in architecture through hands on learning and physical building. I have had the pleasure of being exposed to architectural elements of all sizes from full building design to one foot by one foot facade designs, and the curriculum and learning environment here at South Dakota State University has been the main driver for my interests within the field of architecture. It is my interest in the construction processes, fabrication, and teaching that has influenced me into looking towards returning to South Dakota State University for my masters studies. My interest in construction processes and fabrication has been facilitated by the building shops and large fabrication shop here at South Dakota State University. The integration of these fabrication methods and studies will allow me to push my projects by understanding the methods of fabricating complicated elements and systems. The one room school house studio environment has also had a major influence on my projects. It has allowed me to connect with students at all levels of the program. These connections allow me to push my projects beyond the bounds of the individual class studio and observe works from every level of the program. Finally the graduate teaching and research assistantships offered here at South Dakota State University will allow me to explore my possible interests in teaching and also offer methods of making graduate school more affordable. After graduation, I do not want to simply sit behind a desk and design buildings. I want to design architectural elements of all sizes that can influence, question, and advance the field of architecture. It is these interests and experiences that have inclined me to applying to be apart of the fall 2020 Masters of Architecture class at South Dakota State University, and I hope that my application is compelling enough to allow me to do so.

Thank you, Joseph C. Kenny
