STRUCTURAL MODEL

WEST-FACING SECTION SHOWING ELEVATED BAR STRUCTURE PUNCTURING WAREHOUSE STRUCTURE


The two program pieces of the building each follow their own structural system; product flow: three-pin arch structure with steel ribbed cladding, human flow: large custom trusses with perpendicular frames. Glazing around the truss structure provides daylighting and views from within. The bar-like form is supported by four columns and two entrance pieces; one at the southern end for warehouse workers, and one at the northern end for office workers and customers. This creates an inward flow, bringing both groups of people together at the center of the building.

Another aspect of this project was to test the levels of illuminance within one space in the libary. We did this by creating bay study models and drawings that explored how much daylight was entering the space.

EXPLODED AXON


My final design utlizes the programmatic organization, circulation strategies, and facade approaches of both projects. It features a running track on the interior outer ring of the building, which is a response to the circulation in Rossi’s crematorium. Each floor exists in a protruding form that goes from one side of the building to the other, also in response to Rossi’s project. Similar to UN Studio’s theatre, the facade is a system of layered panels with varying levels of perforation.
