Team Yabarillo

Studio 73, comprised of thirteen graduate level students and thirteen third-year students, was a collaborative studio led under the guidance of Professors James Jones and Dragoslav Simic. Given the challenge of designing a much needed emergency facility for the island of Roatan, the studio established a design philosophy which sought to address the social, economical and environmental challenges facing the people of Roatan. The studio initally split into five design groups to collaborate and rise to the challenge of meeting this request. This project was a year long effort which included two trips to the island, many design iterations and a final group merge. Team Yabarillo was formed in response to the final site visit and has taken the project through the schematic design phase. Initial cost estimation and construction documentation is also included in the final product, as well as material field testing.

Averaging the amount of rainfall the island sees per month, we were able to calculate the total roof catching capability, gutter capacity, and necessary cistern size. Calculations: Kelsie Kremer

What happens when architects think like engineers? In continuing the research of the 2012 graduate design studio, our studio explored the opportunity to fabricate a structural system using the island’s local and accessible materials. Our focus was on testing the resiliency of fiberglass connections as a means of building a roof truss system. After an engineered lab test, we found the material to fail before the connection. We then performed a field study to test the material’s reaction and deflection to an applied load using two 16’ long members. From our tests we were able to conclude that this form of construction is capable of supporting the dead and live load requirements of the island, and has the potential to be an economical form of building.
