publicDETROIT, infillMI Winter Semester 2013 - Professor Andrew Holder partner: Maggie Hummel Standard Star Cell Tensegrity

Three compression struts are replaced with babies

Based onNesting the precedent of Reyner Banham’s “The Tensegrity

Environment Bubble” in which a mile wide bubble was floated above the Rocky Mountains by heating it one degree, “Put ‘Em in a Snuggle” creates a similar type of utopian environment. Instead of using the pressure of air as a device, a tensegrity was developed using a series of struts and tension members that act in very specific relation to one another to allow flotation. Based in downtown Detroit lining Capitol Park, this urban infill project replaces the rigid struts of a tensegrity with biomorphic figures that nest with one another and create a specific animal morphology as architecture. The instinctual reaction to these forms is one of empathy as the forms are clearly meant to be alive, yet are not recognizable as a known living body. This response allows for the many levels of nesting that are encouraged by the babies: tensegrity within site, babies within tensegrity, people to babies, and people to people. A protective utopia floats within the urban fabric of a deserted city.

With restriction to shipping container dimensions and materials, this project aims to use the container in a strategic way by breaking it down into its basic components. By substituting alternate materials in place of walls, ceilings and floors, a continuous folding line is creating, connecting the spaces on the interior and exterior of the building. The rhythm and repetition of materials denote function of interior program. Along with material, circulation becomes the forefront of design, as the way one moves through the space orients he or she in relation to the building as a whole.

recruiter tutor ANN ARBOR, MI Fall Semester 2011 - Professor Melissa Harris Located in a vacant Ann Arbor lot, this site is intended to act as an annex for the University of Michigan Swimming and Diving team. The hierarchal system that exists within university athletics dictates the overall design. The relationship between recruit and recruiter is explored, exposing the corruptness of the seemingly harmless system. The ‘front’-ness of architecture is utilized to alter visitors’ opinions; forcing them to be misled and mesmerized by the institution. Visiters approach the building’s flat, front facade, and enter into the main atrium which showcases the lavish facilities available to student athletes. What they do not know is that the majority of the athletic action takes place below ground where coaches and recruiters make decisions for the athletic department in secrecy. 20

CHUPPAH SUKKAH In Judaism, there are two temporary shelters, the Chuppah and Sukkah, both symbolic of celebratory events.

The chuppah is typically a simple structure symbolic of the woman entering the man’s home to be united in marriage. There are no solid walls so that the community can witness the celebration.

…the chuppah reminds bride and groom that they are protected by God alone and that God is their only haven and support. - Dr. Michael Kaufman Similarly, the Sukkah is also a shelter to be at one with God. However, the focus is inward as an inviting meeting place for all Jews to join together and celebrate the sukkot holiday for seven days. The chuppah may be reused for other wedding celebrations in the community. It could also become the primary structure for the “marriage” and “foundation” of a yearly sukkah project. The result is a multi-purpose structure that can be reused perpetually by the entire community. Every part of the structure will be composed of sustainable materials that can be broken down into sections so that each part may be transported by only one person. Every sukkot holiday the sukkah elements will naturally grow within the chuppah structure as we continue in celebration under God’s blessings.
