LIVING A[LOFT]

in LIMA, PERU

Lima - capital + largest city in Peru | 1/3 population of Peru lives in Lima | population density : 3008 people/km2 | industrial + financial center : 2/3 Peru’s production | mi x of cultures due to colonizing, immigration, native peoples | upscale neighborhood has more parks, shopping than other neighborhoods | presence of live - in maid as status symbol | high end residential attitude | climate allows for features otherwise impossible in other areas: indoor -outdoor fusion, outdoor circulation, and diffuse shading elements

The design approach for this project is primarily research-based, By emphasizing and applying further explorations to the design process, the end product can be well-informed. The ultimate goal of any building is to be well thought out, and of great quality. This project aims for a living, working building that serves its residents. Modern sustainable design has as one of its tenets to improve the quality of life: psychologically, spatially, mechanically. In this manner today’s architects will design for the present without compromising the needs of future generations. Viewing the environment from several angles helps to derive the design of the building. In addition, the exploration of psychological, physical, and mechanical concepts bolsters the projects credibility.

All these factors are greatly affected by latitude, terrain, altitude, & nearby bodies of water their currents.

The program calls for 4 loft units in each building. Each loft must contain a foyer, living room, dining room, kitchen, and dining area, pantry, study, guest restroom (toilet + sink), one master bedroom & walk in closet, three bedrooms, each one with a wall closet & an incorporated bathroom, one maid’s room, one service living room, service -2.5 UNIT PLAN bathroom (full), & a laundry room.

For this particular exoskeleton shape, an organic and geometric space frame must be used. This

creates a protective casing of the building which shelters its residents and provides shading. With members connecting from many different angles, spherical nodes must be used. This connecting “kk system,� effectively creates knots at each of these meeting points. This type of facade is efficient in double layer applications. The

KK system has a great strength to weight ratio, large span capabilities, and geometric flexibility.

STRUCTURAL FLEXIBILITY

The core-floor-wall connections are rigid and stiff, as well as the connection from members to floor. However, the exoskeleton structure itself is flexible, deforming within itself. To allow for this unavoidable movement between members, pistons are included in the member joints.

Water is scarce in Lima - by rainfall

standards it is an arid climate

Irrigation system in this region is complicated and

45 % percent of water is lost during distribution. Additionally, flawed.

Peruvian filtration methods have proven to be inadeuqte. This is one of the reasons Peru is still considered a third world country.

The average Lima resident uses 57.2 gallons of water per day. The proposed AWE system will

condense humid air to provide water for the building’s residents.

One system can produce 2000 gallons / day. If there is an estimated 5 people / unit x 4 units = 20 people in the building total

100 gal / day / person produced 57.2 gal / day / person consumed Judging by the gallons produced being greater than the average gallon usagem this is a successful, working system.

Additional advantage to the system is that

distribution losses are nonexistant as the system is contained within building.

However, such technology causes increased energy loads. One solution is to look into alternative energy sources to help address the addition energy load.

Due to lack of direct sunlight in the climate, PV panels are not an option. However the climate does not require exorbitant amounts of energy spent on cooling as it is, so it can be speculated

The user’s quality of life and aesthetics are facilitated by the plan and corresponding layers of enclosure. Hybrid buildings use passive and active systems to accomplish the best effective and efficient experience for the user. A living, working building has all its elements working simultaneously and symbiotically to benefit the user. The trajectory of modern building design focuses on architecture that is environmentally concerned as well as being technologically advanced. By addressing a building as a “machine,” we are providing for the current generation’s needs without compromising the needs of future generations; a proponent of sustainability.

Pepsin Site Master Plan

in Monticello, IL abandoned syrup plant site rejuvenation | fall 09 professor | Kennedy Hutson partners | aaron detmer + emily cox duration | 7 weeks


Pepsin Site Master Plan in Monticello, IL

Monticello, IL is a rural town 30 minutes west of Champaign-Urbana, IL | Home to many University of Illinois professors | Plot of land left empty since Pepsin Syrup Company closed in 1985

Research

Conclusion

Surrounding communities’ number of hotel rooms greatly outnumbers those in monticello

Thus, we have identified a need for additional hotel rooms and indoor gathering spaces in monticello

Single family homes are the predominant residential housing type found in monticello There are very few desirable options in terms of multi-family housing in the area, which may cause young people to venture elsewhere

There is a market for multi-family housing in and around the town center, which may result in young adults in their 20’s to remain in the community of monticello

Visitors and residents must go to surrounding towns for most recreation, including for movies and theater Retail is at the core of what downtown monticello is built around, and what has created a draw to the area, for residents and visitors

| 25 | Pepsin Site Master Plan

A great deal of sales tax could be brought in if there was a movie theater and a performing arts center in the city of monticello Retail that is flexible and allows for smooth transitions between tenants has been successful for years. An extension of this would help create a connection between the older portion of downtown to the proposed new area of development

Design Solution

New hotel and banquet facility, to provide visitors with adequate lodging and amenities Additional loft apartments and mixed use residential buildings just north of downtown A new cinema and performance space added to Monticello’s downtown cityscape New and converted retail along the east side of Market Street and extending east of the railroad tracks and bike path
