KARINA CISNEROS

Design lies in the seeker. I spent the earlier part of my life seeking a view of design through expression in various mediums. I have been a dj and sushi chef for eight years now and have found that the orchestrational blueprint of music has given me a rhythm to my perspective and a pulse to my forms. The sculpture of sushi has provided a balance in the fabric of planning and a structure to my style. These two remarkable art forms have aided in the foundation of my architectural exploration and destination.

You are the designer of the world around you.

I believe it is important to always pursue the next challenge in the essence of design and to develop as a forward and innovative methodologist. Traveling and culture are vital to understanding the whole of design and the interminable benefits it has for others. Working as a team to establish and share this very knowledge is what makes you, your team, and society successful in the advancing realm of design. 7

Biomimetics The study of structure and function of biological systems as models for the design and e n g i n e e r i n g o f m at e r i a l s a n d machines

Architecture is not immune to the inspirational sources provided by nature. Art Nouveau, which peaked in popularity at the turn of the 20th century, was characterized by organic themes. Like architects, engineers and scientists have also looked at nature for inspiration. Early examples of drawing from nature in engineering can be found in Leonardo da Vinci’s studies for flying machines and ships. But it is only in the early 1950s that the term biomimetics was introduced to describe the study of structures and methods of biological systems as models for engineering and technology. It is to biomimetics that we can attribute the spawning of a number of innovations far superior to what the human mind alone could well conceive. We were asked to design a structural system influenced by a design that we found in nature on a micro-biotic level. 11

Virus Phases The Icosahedral Head of the virus is a three-dimensional octagonal shape; first phase of shape deformation was to flatten, stretch and elongate.

After the new diamond shape was duplicated, it lent itself to as a successful attachment to its comrade creating a module.

The module could then slip into a rhythm and stack to create a structral system.

The modules together hold a strong structural integration to one another by driving into the proceeding module with little effort.

The module could then be placed side by side to one another and act like an overhead canopy or a trussing system. 14

The Wellness Center project focuses on developing a sustainable facility that not only fosters the wellness of the individual, but also wellness within the neighborhood and the greater community. This facility incorporates clinical and fitness components into a comprehensive facility dedicated to preventative medicine and the daily battle we as humans must fight as our minds and bodies evolve and decay. The Wellness Center contains the proper functional requirements to enhance and change the communities’s lifestyle to a more positive and greener approach. The design challenge for the Center was the integration of the community and the development of both the exterior and the interior spaces so that they encourage optimal social interaction. As a part of Oklahoma City’s Midtown District the Center must contribute to the lively, visually exciting, pedestrianoriented, mixed-use urban environment. 21

The upper level of the Wellness Center holds functions such as a spa, cycling room, main entrance, glass running track, and women’s locker spaces. The rock wall is a main exercise component in the Wellness Center and occupies 2 floors with a glass ceiling above to let natural light in. After entering the center on the upper level you curve around to the main circulation which is centrally focused. [Site Model]

25


Tr ack design The track is the main feature of the Wellness Center and the core of the center’s concept. The track was developed to encourage circulation and interaction within the site. The developmental thought to the track lied solely on the basis that circulation through the site should not be interrupted. By giving “nonmembers” an easy access through the site, by means of the track, they are able to catch a glimpse of a yoga session or watch a rock climbing class at the rock wall. What if exposure to exercise is all one needed to get motivated to a better lifestyle? This unique design is geared toward the urban lifestyle and encourages traffic through the site rather than around it.

Italy is one of the European Nations that is most effected by the aging of its population. The Graying of Europe is often referred to the aging phenomenon of Europe, its rapidly morphing and shifting policies, institution, services, decree, structures, and lifestyles across the continent. In the future many of the elderly will not have any children to come take care of them as many have today. Among the various typologies explored for the housing and care of the elderly is integrated living. If it is argued that integrated living should not refer to the sole perspective of different generations living together or in proximity, and should embrace, for instance, social differentiation and intercultural living. In this architectural investigation we are mostly concerned about the idea of integrated living in re-shaping the conceivably archaic model of current assisted living/ nursing homes and emerging facilities. 31

Initial studies These initial study models and site diagrams were geared mostly to adapt to the surrounding urban area in Bosconero, Italy. The studies focused on the interlocking and integration of day lighting in the young, elderly and research spaces. These spaces included but are not limited to:

+ Teatro

[Theater]

+ Biblioteca

[Library]

+ Sogno sezione [Dream Chamber]

+ Sala della Musica [Music Room]

+Montessori

[Space fo 150 Pupils]

+Instituto di Ricera Gerontologicaege e Geriatrica [Geriatric Research Facility]

34

+ Caffè

[Cafe]

+Presidio

[Assisted Living]


[context massing model]

Day lighting was an intergral concept goal for the team. We wanted to flood the mixed-use center with as much day lighting as possible, keeping all spaces feeling light and lofty. We desired that all spaces should have a visual connection to each other by eliminating any bordersnear each other. Our answer to this was the placing of a central courtyard that not only served as a day lighting tool to inward facing spaces but also served as a interior garden maintained by the residents and the students of the center. 35


Massi ng & i nterlocking In biology, mutualism is a symbiotic relationship between individuals of different species where both individuals derive a benefit. We could then speculate that it is possible to mesh, or better interlock distinct architectural programs and generate mutual benefits among the diverse users. Our team approach for project Bosconero was to divide the functions, working on the specific details of our responsibilities, then joining interests at the end of each working day in order to fuse solutions and thoughts. The visual and physical connections of the Montessori (yellow) and the Presidio (red) was the main priority and driving thought behind all executive decisions. The perimeter of the building was also taken in to account as it was the first urban project that we had worked on. Fusion of the “urban edge� and the culture of the Italians was taken into consideration when designing entry spaces, views from the Presidio, and the synthesis of the courtyard to the street edge.

[Montessori / Interlocking] 36

[Presidio]


[Interlocking] This interlocking mass was dedicated to the physical integration of old and young. These spaces and their function are geared to appeal to all ages. A dream center, music room, library, and theater are located here to enhance the physical living of the elderly and to expand the self exploration of the Montessori students.

The first floor of the center includes a cafe, main entrance, ambulance entrance, and clerical spaces for the Presidio tenants. The Montessori functions included a gallery for the display of art work, clerical spaces for the employees of the Montessori, and 3 classrooms. There is also the idea of the courtyard being a space used by the students for horticulture.

The second floor of the center includes a secluded balcony adjacent to the interlocking spaces, immediate special care rooms for the elderly, and a social dining space for the Presidio tenants. The Montessori functions included 3 classrooms, 3 outdoor balcony gardening areas, and indoor clerical spaces.

The third floor of the center includes a home theater, music room, and artistic break out space for the interlocking areas. The Presidio holds short term living spaces along with a break out spaces for social interaction. The Instituto di Ricera Gerontologicaege e Geriatrica (Geriatrics Research) is located above the Montessori with a direct acess cat walk to the Presidio storage.

The fourth floor of the center includes short term living spaces for the elderly. These spaces include a kitchenette, a rest room, large bedroom, and a vcomfortable living space.

Bricktown, located in the heart of Oklahoma City, is a new up and coming district. The newly vibrant district is flooded with retail, restaurants, clubs, and bars. Entertainment is the main attraction for the growing Bricktown. We were asked to design a dance theater that specialized in modern dance to appeal to the new crowd Bricktown is attracting. For this particular project in our architectural education as a student we were taught how to take a conceptual design idea through to construction documents. We covered the whole spectrum of design and construction by working closely with our professors, all who each specialized in their own realm of architectural expertise. We calculated lighting and day lighting levels for specific rooms, sized the structure, developed a design for duct work, selected and retained samples of specific materials from the manufacturers, wrote specification documents, and calculated acoustics for proper theater seating. 47

A planning decision was established early on in schematic design that the theater should be tilted on the site in order to compliment a bridge that would serve as a main entry access avenue from street level across the canal to the main entrance of the theater. Red light boxes that housed all main circulation into the theater also compliment the same angle as the bridge. All back of the house functions such as dressing rooms and lounges are located on the canal level along with a signature restaurant and art gallery on the north side urban edge.

Reinforced concrete shear walls in the theater contribute to resisting both horizontal and lateral loads. W-shaped members, the largest spanning a maximum of 30’, were used when supporting the concrete floor slabs and are attached to the 1’ x 1’ concrete columns used throughout the theater. Largest span for steel joists is 150’ long and are located at the roof of the actual theater. The red light boxes, made out of 14’ channel glass modules also house a trussing system and aid in structural stability. A wooden trussing substructure is housed under the theater seating. A basket weave decking is used under the stage and gives is strong structural integrity.

Savvy Soak [I n d u s t r i a l D e s i g n ] +35.46756 N, -97.516428 W 677’

This bird bath was designed during a materials course where we tested and discovered the limitations of various materials and their constraints in distinct weather conditions. We worked in teams and were given full liberty on which materials we chose and how we persued design development. Our team wanted to create a dynamic and unusual piece that could stand as its own sculpture rather than the expected pedestal and basin design. We chose to take a more industrial approach to the design and wanted to keep the bird bath honest with its connections and construction. As a team we were able to work out design decisions smoothly and worked well when it came to construction and assembly. We spent nintey hours and one hundred and ten dollars total on the project. The whereabouts of this project have become somewhat of a mystery and no one seems to know where or when it was seen last. Case files are still open. 69

i ntrospection When developing our design concept we analyzed what a bird bath is for. This introspection into this basic function is what lead us to reject preconceived notions of what a bird bath should look like and instead pursue a purer interpretation of the function in the design.

Urban Fa b r i c [S e a t t l e , W a s h i n g t o n ] +47.60621 N, -122.332071 W 520’

When designing for urban spaces such as the Civic Square in Seattle we came in contact with the understanding of conceptual development where urbanism and transportation are merged and considered a significant design issue. This form of urban architecture flourished in our American cities until the 1920’s when cities began to expanded dramatically. During the last approximately 30 years, in urban downtowns in particular, a return to the concept of mixed uses has become a key element in the revitalization that has been taking place. The success of mixed-use development is dependent upon creating a mix of mutually complementary and supportive services with varied activities which activate the area for an extended period of time during day and night. As a team, we explored in detail how a mixed-use complex of buildings can be accomplished in order to foster a more vibrant and livable urban environment. 77

After analyzing the site and interpreting traffic patterns we came to the conclusion that the massing of our building to plaza should be a 50/50 ratio on the site. This allows the main traffic patterns to be free of obstruction and encourage networking through the site. 81


82


83


initial Massi ng in context The initial 50/50 ratio maintained its integrity through preliminary investigations. The mass was extruded and a “key hole� was pierced through the mass which opened the site up to further possibilities for pedestrian traffic. The key hole was splayed which led to a gentle slope that continued up and through the keyhole as seen in 4th figure to the right on the bottom of page 85.

Functions Our vision for the Seattle Civic Square is to fuse together the community, commerce, transportation, and the culture of the Seattle’s surrounding districts. We want to create an icon for Seattle’s sustainable focus and link the human component to its very success. Seattle’s urban vitality depends on the people who work, occupy and experience the variety of life the city has to offer.

+45.666286 N,+12.242072 E

[ Competition 1]

59’

The city of Treviso, located in northern Italy , is known for its vibrant lifestyle and possesses a rich cultural and fashionable town center. Treviso is the birthplace and home to fashion mogul Luciano Benetton. The medieval city planning of Treviso gives a tight knit center the to the city and offers direct underground transportation to Venice. The Tower House sits just outside the city and can be seen especially at night as one of the prominent buildings in the city of Treviso. The competition in Italy was broken apart into three phases of design work. The first phase was the development of a new skin system, the second was a redesign of the base to develop a more urban environment for the residents of the building and the public. Finally, a viewing platform located above the penthouse was developed in order to view the city of Treviso, The Alps, and the Mediterranean. 105

Existing Tower

The existing Tower House, made out of concrete and stucco has a dingy and dark profile. There are issues with insulation and sun control. These issues were the basis for our skin design and offered a design route to create a new identity for the Tower House. What residents really wanted was more square footage, we took this into consideration when wrapping the building and gave the residents more control over their balcony spaces. 109

The base design was a resolution of many issues. Water retention, parking, circulation and community space was addressed when reformatting the space. Children now had a play area that also double as light wells into the parking spaces below The tower and a ramp was introduced to aid to non-accessible entrances. A community eating space was now designated and a fire stair that led up to the penthouse observation deck and restaurant were now implemented into the design.

[ Competition 2]

87’

As a team we wanted to introduce new technology and organic form to the traditional town of Commune De Ponte Nelle Alpi. This particular competition called for not only a pedestrian bridge but a bridge for bicycle transportation across the river. Many designs were considered but the most simplistic designs were chosen to develop further. Views to the Alps and to the city’s Castle were taken into great consideration during site development research and became the basis and fundamental driving forces to future design development. Structure of the bridge was kept simple and was not the focus of the design process as you would usually see with the design of a bridge. The re-design of the bus stop was the second phase of the competition. Color, material, and function of the bus stop shelter was designed with a forward thinking mind-set. 123

[Pedestrian Trail]

Pedestrian and bicycle trails needed to be separate from each other for safety and traffic reasons. As a team we decided to develop CHASMS within the floor plan to separate the two functions without making two separate bridges. There are two nodes with in the bridge if the user decides to shift their desired use. A shift in material was also used to highlight the two different functions.

The bus stop was an optional goal in the competition rules and in true fashion the team decided to take on the challenge. We wanted the bus stop to be an contemporary addition to the bridge in material and form. The bus stop includes wi-fi and digital projections of bus schedules coupled with comfortable seating and ample views. The color was chosen to highlight a technological node. 135

CONCORSO DI PROGETTAZIONE IN DUE GRADI PER LA COSTRUZIONE DI UN PONTE CICLOPEDONALE SUL FIUME PIAVE

attraversare ieri og


Il concorso per la costruzione di un nuovo ponte ciclopedonale sul fiume Piave all’ingresso del centro abitato di Ponte nelle Alpi e a poca distanza dal ponte esistente pone una serie di obiettivi al progettista: promuovere una mobilità ed una fruibilità ecosostenibile tra le due sponde del fiume valorizzando al contempo ,in un territorio fortemente urbanizzato, un contesto storico ed ambientale di pregio.

ggi domani

Un contesto sul cui sfondo si stagliano le tornite vette delle Dolomiti connotato dall’odierno ponte stradale ad arcata unica realizzato nei primi anni venti e dal Castello Bortoluzzi di inizio secolo che riprende nel gusto dell’epoca le antiche fortificazioni merlate. Il concept pertanto vuole sviluppare le tematiche della mobilità sostenibile e del rapporto con il dato storico ambientale attraverso un progetto che fuori dalla banalità di un possibile mimetismo possa diventare un segno architettonico di forte suggestione che con la sua silhouette leggera ed innovativa sia capace di valorizzare gli usi molteplici dei suoi vista dal fiume Piave fruitori nell’arco della giornata Un ponte perciò in funzione del pedone, del bimbo con la nonna oppure del ciclista, sia esso con la bicicletta in mano o correndo con l’ultimo modello bmx che può essere in assoluta sicurezza di veloce o lenta percorrenza. Oppure ancora come spazio di attesa dell’amante che nel silenzio della notte gioca con il suo cellulare su cui si riflette il castello..

CONCORSO DI PROGETTAZIONE IN DUE GRADI PER LA COSTRUZIONE DI UN PONTE CICLOPEDONALE SUL FIUME PIAVE

Il grande puntone in acciaio alleggerito dalla sua particolare forma a fuso costituisce il supporto strutturale principale all’assito del ponte e si staglia dalla sponda sinistra del Piave ramificandosi in due parti corrispondenti ai rispettivi percorsi del ponte. Il ponte, infatti, presenta nel camminamento una sorta di asola che funzionalmente lo divide offrendo due percorsi diversi ma complementari. Quello a valle di tipo scultoreo e con un rivestimento interno in legno favorisce una camminata lenta ed è dedicato soprattutto al passaggio pedonale. Qui il pedone percorre in salita o in discesa un dislivello di circa 6 metri sei metri tra le due sponde non in maniera diretta, ma segmentata attraverso rampe inframezzate da piani di sosta che consentono di definire un tracciato con pendenze comprese tra il 5-8% e quindi nel rispetto della normativa vigente. Le geometrie ricavate dall’incontro dei piani inclinati e orizzontali formano delle ampie sedute e a circa metà del ponte ciclopedonale si propone la realizzazione di un belvedere sulle vallate con uno sbalzo di quattro metri rispetto al sezione ordinaria del ponte. vista dal belvedere Il belvedere pur avendo un’inquadratura preferenziale verso l’arco dolomitico consente comunque una completa veduta dell’area circostante. Inoltre, con un altro più piccolo ampliamento laterale del pervista aerea notturna corso si è voluto creare un punto
