I NNU N DATE PROFE SSOR: BRIAN KELLY The ability to use design as a tool to solve complex problems is an essential skill for any architect. The brief for this project was to design an open source system that addresses current global disasters. This project was done in a group with four other students, both architects and interior designers. The site and program were both undecided at the beginning of the project.


flooding As global climates continue to change, world sea levels have risen startling amounts. Rising 3.4MM per year, the sea levels have continued to cause floods around the world. The timeline below shows large floods that have occured during the summer of 2016. This project focuses on using design to address flooding issues around the world.

18

Because of the abundant supply of bamboo as a cheap, local building material; we began to do study models testing different forms and structures that could be achieved with bamboo. From these it bacame clear that a light portable structure would be the most effective use of the material.


19


shelter TITLE Using wood to simulate bamboo, we developed several light gridshells that could be shipped down the river and quickly assembled by locals on the chars. This tectonic structure would provide the basic framing for a house and could be transported with a family from char to char. Once assembled, the family could then begin to infill the walls with rammed earth or other local materials.

flooding: Stereotomic Stereotomic describes the process of sculpting solid material, usually earth. By etching out the land, mounds are formed for the homes to be built on. By elevating the homes, they are kept safe from annual monsoon floods which innundate the chars for months at a time.

floods: Tectonic The tectonic element of the design is the bamboo and canvas structure . Resting on top of the rammed earth walls, it provides a light surface for the home. When catostrophic floods hit the chars, these structures can be disconnected and flipped over, converting them into small boats that allow the char dwellers to survive the flood and relocate.

Production would begin in Dhaka. A CNC mold cut file with instructions would be manufactured and sent to laborers to mold and join the bamboo to make the boat.

2

The boat would then be sent down the river to char dwellers needing shelter.

3

The boat would be flipped 180 degrees, anchored into the mound created by char residents and the canvas ‘wings’ would fold down for protection. Rammed earth could also supplement protection from the elements.

25

4

Units can be added and layered to create a cluster typology vernacular to rural Bangladesh.

5

In disastrous floods, the units can be quickly un-anchored and flipped back into a boat with possessions and livestock inside.

6

The char residents would then have the opportunity to float down to a more southern area of the char or a new char and resettle their homes and livelihoods.

The goal of building this playground was to not only provide hope to children in the community, but to empower young men and women to be catalists for change around them. The project was constructed during a summer high school reteat by local students. Because of this, the design was created as a modular system. Dispersing work into many teams allowed the project to be completed in six hours

Creating large models allowed for a more in-depth focus on the materiality of the module. The building is designed with a rough, steel skin that masks the inner beauty of the wood panel interior. The front entry opens up to a light clean space, where homeless men, women and families can regain their dignity.

DR I FTWOOD PROFE SSOR: MARK BACON Considered by many to be one of the greatest examples of modern architecture, the Farnsworth house is a building that must be preserved. Situated in the floodplain of the Fox River, the house along with the surrounding areas, has been subject to increasing flood damage due to improper damming upstream. Driftwood is a proposed visitor center for the house that would seek to raise awareness regarding the house as well as the flooding.To do this, the new visitor center uses a dock-like system in order to take advantage and shed light on the flooding.

The visitor center is located directly on the bank of the river near the house to display the effects of the flooding most clearly. Because of its proximity to the house, the new visitor center will sit below grade during normal water levels in order to maintain the house's emphasis on experiencing nature. However, as the river begins to flood, the building will lift out of the ground and float on the water, allowing visitors to view the house up close even in a flooded state.

structure

64

The structure of the new visitor center will be similar to the structure of the farnsworth house: floor slab, roof slab, and columns to connect them. However, because the building must be able to move freely up and down with the water, the columns will be a two layered system. The interior column will be a pier that rises above the house and holds the house in place when it is flooded, the exterior column will be a hollow structural column that moves freely along the interior column while still maintaining the structural integrity of the building.

organization The building is organized primarily by circulation and exposure. Public spaces flow from east to west on the southern end of the building while the office spaces are on the north end. When flooded, the central staircase and core remain at ground level while the rest of the building rises up with the water. As this occurs a new viewing space opens up above the core, allowing the building to further respond to the flooding issue. The building is split by a courtyard on the east side in order to allow southern exposure into the office.

TITLE The visitor

center, like the farnsworth house, is meant to showcase all that surrounds it; the beauty of the nature, and the house as well. As the environment around the house changes, the visitor center is able to respond and adapt along with it. This reaction allows the visitor to experience not only one of the greatest houses in the United States, but to also experience the beauty of the natural environment that surrounds it.

70


To connect the building back to the rest of the site a new boardwalk path will run along the southern end of the site. The boardwalk, like the visitor center, will float with the flood. This will ensure that the site can be accessed even in flooding.

T H E CO L L E C TIVE PROFE SSOR: T IM HEMSATH The Collective is a mixed-use building that focuses nurturing a more socially responsible, sustainable community. The building seeks to use both location and organization to foster and build relationships between both residents and the larger local community. Located at the crossroads between a local historic district (the Lincoln Haymarket) and the University of Nebraska Lincoln, the site is a node where relationships can be formed.

COMMUNITY SPACE The crossroads is currently a sidewalk that moves under the overpass and along the parking lot, but this project shifts this path north around a public community space. The path brings people up and through the different community spaces along the sides of the buildings. The combination of green spaces, outdoor dining spaces, and open plazas allows for multiple types of interaction to take place. Conversations over a coffee can happen at one of the restaurants, while ultimate frisbee and barbeques can create memories on the green.

SM ASH PROFE SSOR: BRIAN KELLY India's trash problem is something most Americans don’t really know about, even if they have heard of the issue it is difficult to fully understand simply because it is something that we have never seen here. According to The Central Public Health and Environmental Engineering Organization, India produces 1.3 pounds of trash per person, per day. Now this is a relatively small number considering it is only about a third of what Americans produce. The problem is that when you account for nearly 1.2 billion people living in india, that’s 1.56 billion pounds per day. 73 million more pounds per day than the US, and the problem is there’s only a third of the space. Because of this 94% of the trash is disposed of in an unsafe way by burning or or simply lining the streets. Consequentially the people will increasingly be forced to start making their homes among the masses of trash because there is nowhere else to go.

Because of India's massive population, and relatively small land area, the amount of trash produced by the country is increasingly overtaking all of the available space. This causes 94% of India's trash to be disposed of in an unsafe way. The SmASH brick homes will significantly reduce the amount of trash being burned or piled in streets. This design does not solve the issue of trash but it is intended to stabilize it while India's infrastructure continues to catch up with the rest of the world.

Trash Production 2014 Trash Production 2015-2020


Brick Making Process

The Smash Brick is a brick that is composed of soil mixed with trash. The brick takes trash and compresses it insde of earth bricks. These bricks solve the issue of housing and trash simultaneously. After testing the bricks compressive strength, they met both Indian and US codes making them a feasable housing solution.
