SEA SIDE RESORT HOTEL, Sea Ranch,California The site is on the coast of northern California 160km from San Fransisco. The general topography of the coast varies from flat to sloping table land elevated from 15 ro 25m above the ocean by rugged cliffs. The area is extremely popular for day tri ps to observe whale migration, birds and sea otters along with a variety of plant material. The use suffers from the limited accomodation now available. The proposed new hotel would have approximately 40 rooms plus spaces for conferences and similar uses. This is not a site for trendy architecture or for “log cabin modern� but designs of a hig h level of sophistication. The intension was to create an internal recreation environment for the people residing at the hotel because of the harsh weather that domainated at sea ranch. The design also accomodates for a lot of dramatic spaces that a user visualizes as he moves from one space into another. The design evolved using minimalist composition of forms that diverges into various wings containing its own function.

URBAN SCHOOL HYBRID, Montague,VIC THE URBAN VILLAGE As people walk across the continuous street wall, alleys and pathways cut throug h the building introducing urban porosity within the form. These alleyways meander into large landscaped courtyards filled with sunlig ht attracting people into the building creating a setting of an ‘Urban Village’. The design of the school is concieved from urban design princi ples that was then made to evolve with its program to reflect a landmark building that acts as a community magnet and a hub. Its goal being, to liven up the node and bring about an architecture that is energized with the continuous flow of people. Active frontages throug hout its continuous street edge and the porosity within the structure helps in attracting people into its program and enrich’s the pedestrian experience by maintaining the rhythm on the street. The form of the building was made to evolve with external influences such as the structure plan, the program and the ESD princi ples, which moulded a building that was stepped in form and raised on its edge hence strengthening the corner node of Montague and Buckhurst street.

TRANSIT HUB ,Parkville,VIC THE CLOUD The clouds float hig h above the ground. Amongst them sits a new piece of infrastructure for the city, a gateway for the north. This gateway is to be an amalgamation of its immediate context, a molding of competing urban forces; the intersection of a chaotic transportation network and a more rigid system of education, research and health institutions. As these two conditions merge they form something entirely new, a kind of urban vortex,both spatially and temporally,so as to momentarily absorb moments of each before they are flung out once again. It is this condition which this project attempts to explore as the fulcrum for a new underground railway station. In doing this we untie the troublesome transportation network, by sending cars underground in two separate tunnels with one point of exchange between the two, thus freeing the ground plane for pedestrians and trams. This establishes an urban platform, at ground level, which is to be activated by architectural moments,urban rooms defined by the space below the superstructure and by new interventions at ground. The ground plane is split into three segments or streets,the university,the park and the market,which are all pulled towards the new underground station,increasing in intensity as they are incrementally forced towards the centre. Above sits the cloud,which houses a diverse range of programs, which too, are being pulled towards the central form and down into the underground of the station, such that the point of programmatic exchange becomes unclear,blurred as it is thrown into a relationshi p with other competing forces. In doing this the station become a place truly at the core of the community, a melting pot of competing conditions, which can be harnessed and molded before they are once again thrown back out into the city,thus expressing the context with a true and meaningful image of itself.

GRID SHELL Northcote Aquatic Centre,VIC HOW VIRTUAL BECOMES REAL Shading and functionality are the two important factors missing at the Northcote recreation centers outdoor swimming pools. The project addresses this criteria by positioning segmented grid shell roofs across the 50m pool providing not only shading, but also a play of lig ht and shadows throug h the varied opening perforated panels,and also providing various function beneath each kiosk like roofs. Contrary to a single grid shell roof spanning across the perimeter of the swimming pool, the segmented roofs provide visual permeability and an aesthetic boulevard enhancing the users travel experience.

EVOLUTION OF FORM

Intensity of usage Permeability/sig ht lines Canopy boulevard/spine

The segmented roofs were concieved to be of three types but belonging to the same family of canopy structures. The basic open canopy with its top ring folding onto the ground broug ht about a structure with an intimate space and inverting the folded canopy broug ht forth an open shaded space that could be used for recreation. All the three types of canopy structures were placed in the site in such a way that they narrate the opening,closing and the inversion of the form.

INNOVATIVE ASPECTS ABOUT THE PROJECT

DOUBLE LAYERED TIMBER LATHS

04

The project experimented with forms that belonged to the same family but mani pulated to provide various spatial outcomes. The innovative aspect of this project involves parametrically defining the spatial forms of these structures and optimizing them using karamba and galapagos to give an optimum form that undergoes minimum displacement. The construction of these grid shell roofs also uses innovative methods of prefabrication and mounting on site which results in lesser time and cost.
