Forest Park Southeast, St. Louis, Missouri Adrian Luchini Spring 2013 – Degree Project Studio In Acupuncture, the bodily wellness is dependent on the balanced flow of an energy-like entity called Qi. The city exhibits similar qualities as the body. The project is a surgical and selective intervention into the urban environment to improve the fluidity of movement among people and automobiles, thus generating an area of healing that reaches beyond the building boundaries and extending to the entire neighborhood.

Acupuncture Acupuncture theory is based on the premise that bodily functions are regulated by the flow of an energy-like entity called qi. Acupuncture aims to correct imbalances in the flow of qi by stimulation of anatomical locations called acupuncture points, which are connected by channels known as meridians throughout the body. This proposal will use acupuncture as a way of looking at the city as a living organism to identify areas that are “sick” or “worn out”. Urban Acupuncture is a surgical and selective intervention into the urban environment that will revitalize an area and its associated network. The intervention will trigger a positive chain-reaction to enhance the whole system.

Urban Chi The flow of qi in the human body can be compared to the movement of the city inhabitant. People travel between home and activity nodes for work, leisure and institutional purposes every day. The health of a city depends on the fluidity and balance of the flow of its inhabitant. When this movement is impaired the neighborhood struggles to maintain its vibrancy and livability. This flow is the Urban Qi of a city. The amount of vacancy in a neighborhood is a good indicator of the wellness of the area. High volume of flow through a neighborhood exhibits great potential in healing the disturbance. Therefore, an area with strong urban qi and high vacancy rate is where the intervention should be located in order to achieve the most effective result of urban acupuncture.

Site : Forest Park Southwest, St. Louis Like many other areas in St. Louis, Forest Park Southeast neighborhood is populated with countless vacant and abandoned lots, and experienced a 9% population decrease in recent years. However, it embodies great potential for the restoration of Urban Qi. Forest Park Southeast is conveniently located to major work and transportation nodes, such as Medical Campus and Highways. Urban Acupuncture can be implemented at different scales. The goal of the project is to generate an area of healing that reaches for more than the building site itself and its immediate surroundings.

CONCEPTURAL COMPOSITION

Conceptual Composition The Convenience and Enrichment Center encourages the fluid movement and interaction among commuters and local residents, with continuous circulation path based on the tri-fold frame. The architecture facilitates an intimate relationship between the flow of pedestrians and automobiles. The intervention suggests urban acupuncture at a macro scale. However, the restoration of urban qi will ripple from streets to neighborhoods to city and to county level.

LOCATION: INSTRUCTOR: TIME: CONCEPT:

Villa 31, Buenos Aires, Argentina Fabian Llonch Fall 2012 – Buenos Aires Option Studio The project aims to address the problems caused by the rapid and unregulated growth of the “informal” settlements. The standardized yet personalizable system will provide the inhabitants with basic infrastructural needs, such as energy and water, while allowing for a nourishing learning environment for the children.


ARCHITECTURAL WORKS ` LAURA JU WANG   —

Villa 31 Neighborhood Buenos Aires is a city of sharp social and economic contrast. Behind the glamour of the “formal” city, large areas of marginal lands are occupied by “spontaneous” settlement, or the “informal” inhabitants. Villa 31 is located on vacant railroad and port authority land, in the margins of one the of most wealthy central district of the city.

Rapid Growth and Informal Architecture Favored by better and cheaper access to transport, public spaces and public services, the size and population of the Villa experienced astonishing growth in the last decade. This is accompanied by informal and unsafe architecture and infrastructure built by the residents. Regeneration Project aims to address the problems caused by the extreme rapid growth.


REGENERATION   —  21

Site Massing LOOKING SOUTHEAST ALONG RAILROAD

BIRD’S-EYE VIEW FROM NORTH Because of its close proximity to the central district, Villa 31 forms a sharp contrast in scale and materiality to the formal city. While the villa continuous to expand both in footprint and vertically, it is urgently in need of a system that will bridge and filter the extreme discrepancies between the two forms of settlement.

Key Solutions The Regeneration system will provide the settlement with safe basic infrastructural needs, such as energy and water, while serving as a filter mediating the drastic contrast between the formal and informal city. This will equip the residents with a framework they can use to manage a more systematic and controlled growth in the future.


ARCHITECTURAL WORKS ` LAURA JU WANG   —

System Exploration The goal is to develop a system that can accommodate the infrastructural need of the key solutions, while keeping it simple and easy to construct and implement in the villa. The system must embrace the self-generating and self-destroying nature of the informal settlement. A series of explorations were carried out from cutting and manipulating a flat surface to create space.


REGENERATION   —  23

Site Strategy Scale of structure responds to the existing settlement, and allows for a nourishing learning environment for the children.

Master Plan The project will be implemented on the edge of the villa, bordering the central district, so it will serve as a filter between the two settlements. The system can be employed along the entire edge, housing different kinds of public and infrastructural facilities. Phase one of the master plan, - INTRODUCTION OF NORTH-SOUTH STREETS BY THE MASTER PLAN IMPROVED ACCESSIBILITY OF THE SITE including a school, will be located at the southeast corner because of ease of access and best visibility. - SCHOOL SITE IS CENTRALLY LOCATED - EASE OF PEOPLE AND RESOURCE MOVEMENT - NEW FRONTAGE FROM THE HIGHWAY

The Path of the Giants

The giants have been part of the Catalan tradition since 1424. Giants walk and dance on the streets during festivals and celebrations with the aim of attracting people, teaching figures and sacred scenes. Each giant is measured at 4.35 meters and weighted at 90 Kg. The plaza space linking the building site and Rambla Street is a major channel to bring the presence of the Giants to the public. It can also be used as gathering areas during celebrations.

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Monte Carlo is a suspended city both physically and in the sense of time. Suspension in time (pause in the busy city) is represented in the collage of the cinematic experience in Monte Carlo. The horizon brings peace to the individual in the film. There is a blurred sensation of the horizon created by reflection of the busy city in the water. There are also pockets of pause and activity within the landscape.

Conceptual Section

Exploration of the idea that Monte Carlo as a city suspended underwater. What will happen to the city’s infrastructure and domesticity when it is suspended?

PASSIVE HEATING AND COOLING STRATEGY

Climate Control The heating and cooling system is based on a trombe wall construction. Solar heat trapped between the roof cavities will be used to warm the space. Operable vents on the roof and to the interior allow convictive heat to transfer indoors. Geothermal will be used as a cooling source. Warm and humid air from the shower and steam rooms will leak between the hot and dry air from the roof and the cool and dry air from the ground, creating a cloud like effect. This phenomenon further reinforces the blurred vision of the horizon. HOT + DRY LAYER

Passive heating and cooling strategies to lessen the energy consumption burden of Monte Carlo. Weather is generally mild here, but swimming in the ocean is not feasible all year round due to low water temperature during winter months. In order to address this, the sun and wind are utilized to create an energy efficient interior space that could be used all year round. Also water used for the pools will be filtered by algae.

Water and Climate Analysis

The distinction in the various landscapes is caused mainly by water. The movement of water alters the terrains to provide necessary drainage and it also enables the survival of plant life in the desert.

Site Plan

The building is located behind the natural oasis and in between two water drainage paths. The building system mimics the site drainage strategy to create a new oasis within the architecture.


DESERT OASIS   —  69

Floor and Roof Plan

The program of the research center is divided in to four zones: completed controlled spaces, semi controlled, transitional spaces and not controlled spaced. People are able to move in between these zones and programs, thus allowing flexible program spaces. The gutters direct the flow of water and also the circulation of people.


ARCHITECTURAL WORKS ` LAURA JU WANG   —

Section Water is pulled from the wash and recycled back into the swell with a system of gutters through the building floor. Then water is sprinkled through the building skin network to cool down the interior and allow the growth of air plants on the structure to provide shading. Excess water will be recycled back into the natural oasis with the sloped floor and gutters. The roof is equipped with operable skylight that lets in light and air when desired.


DESERT OASIS   —  71

Semi-Conditioned Space The transitional space, conditioned by sprinkled water and greenery, not only can be used as circulation area, but also a flexible space that user can enjoy under the sun without over heating.

INTROSPECTION

BETWEEN BODY AND CITY


Raymond Chau Igor Marjanovic and Heather Woofter Spring 2013 - History and Theory Elective Seminar The mapping and study of Qi is a way to make visible the metaphysical responses of the body as triggered by physical contact with the environment. Collective participation fosters a constant assessment by the participants between their individual actions, the collective effect and the projection of the environment by the dancing body.

INTROSPECTION   —  89

PARTNER: INSTRUCTOR: TIME: CONCEPT:


ARCHITECTURAL WORKS ` LAURA JU WANG   —

Mapping of the Bodily Qi In, Acupuncture, the wellness of the human body is based on the internal flow of energy called Qi. It is delivered by fourteen meridians in the body and their flow can be stimulated by specific pressure points along them. The mapping and study of Qi can be understood as a way to make visible the metaphysical responses of the body as triggered by physical contact with the environment.


INTROSPECTION   —  91

Mannequin The formation of the mannequin by pressure points and meridians is reflective of the intent to activate the metaphysical through the physical. The mannequin is constructed out of everyday materials: plastic beads, cotton strings and strengthened by plastic straws. After soaking the body in bubble solution, soap membrane is formed between the networks like skin.


ARCHITECTURAL WORKS ` LAURA JU WANG   —

Collective Participation

The body takes shape only when tensioned from multiple directions, requiring collective participation for its activation. Through this process the participants notice their internal bodily responses to their immediate surroundings, thus rediscovering their role in the city.


INTROSPECTION   —  93

Reflection . As the network is stretched and pulled with varying vectors of forces, the skin of the body deforms and reflects the surrounding with constantly adjusting apertures and acuteness. This fosters a constant assessment by the participants between their individual actions, the collective effect and the projection of the environment by the dancing body.
