Site The site offered various opportunities. Since the North view is perfectly facing North, it facilitated the positioning of both buildings. Two rectangular-shape buildings. The residential building divided into three and the retail building divided into two. Both rotated in a 15 degree angle that allows sustainable lighting, ventilation, and green space; views to downtown Orange and easy accessibility.

The skin structure allows the local residents to keep privacy while living in a communal area. Green space has been incorporated within the building to re-claim the green space that has been occupied by the structure. The building is designed to attract people from other cities and local. In addition to the market and other public spaces, there is a skate park on site that allows its visitors to have a fun time while socializing with other people. 1.6

Albert Einstein’s ritual was simple. “ He worked until 1:00, then returned home for a 1:30 lunch, a nap, and a cup of tea. The rest of the afternoon was spent at home, continuing his work, seeing visitors, and dealing with the correspondence that his secretary had sorted earlier in the day. Supper was at 6:30, followed by more work and more letters.”

| Individual

Purpose: Final project for Rhino 1 class. Personal project using Rhino as the main modeling software. The purpose of this project was to develop a model based on what we had learned during the semester. Smoke is the idea behind this model that I call Kinetic Tower. 5.0

Orange Coast College | 3-D Modeling: Rhino 1 Fall | 2017


Smoke Sequence

Smoke from a burning piece of paper was recorded. I then screen shot what I felt were most interesting images of the video to develop the model. The merging of outlines from the smoke images and collages helped me to understand the kinetic movement of the smoke. As the smoke moves in the air, it changes form organically.

Collages

Collages were created first, by combining the photographic scenes captured on video, and second, by tracing the outlines of the screen shots. I created three different collages and then added curves to get a clue of how this tower could look like. 5.2

154 South Orange Street Orange, California 92866

Purpose: To create a functional Monument Icon / Folly as a way finding element that can be used through the city to link key components and bring imageability. Orange Coast College | Architectural Design Theory 3 Spring | 2017

Site Analysis

Alleyways Pedestrian Crosswalks Sidewalks Proposed Folly Location

The site analysis for this project was one of the most important elements that helped me to understand what this folly could look like and its functionality. Additionally, the location of the folly (structure) was required to be located strategically and have a functional element to it. The city of Orange is one of the cities in Orange county that is characterized

by

its

connectivity

throughout the city. In other words, it is a walkable city. It allows its local residents to get their daily errands done without the need of owning a car. 7.1

Orange Coast College | Architectural Design Theory 3 Spring | 2017


Design Process

First Sequence: Connectivity is one of the main characteristics that defines the city of Orange. I wanted to design something that will create a stronger connection for local residents and its visitors by creating a form of circulation within the “Orange Cirlce.�

Second Sequence: Enclosure is always important to make people feel comfortable. It can make people build trust with other people by socializing, but at the same time is important to provide each person with their own personal private space.

The design process is based on three quick sketches that I created for two different options. First, by randomly drawing four lines and then adding curves to them. After combining both, the lines and the curves, they allowed me to understand the relationship between the two. The curves and lines combined give the sense of movement and enclosure. This design could possibly be used as a bus stop, a pavilion, or a rest area for pedestrians in the city of Orange. Orange Coast College | Architectural Design Theory 3 Spring | 2017

Materials and Functions 01 Tinted Glass (power generator) 02 Aluminum Structure 03 Bench

The proposed functionality of this folly is the following: It can be used as a gathering space in the Orange circle area. Seating area within the space that is provided, shading provided by the aluminum structure and tinted glass. Other functions it could possibly serve as is as a waiting area or as a bus stop. Technology could possibly be incorporated such as cell phone charging USB since the design includes power generator glasses as part of its structure. 7.3

08 Parametric Tower 3-D Modeling: Rhino 2 Instructor | Steve Fuchs Work Time | 4 weeks Project

| Individual

Final project for Rhino 2 class. The objective of this project was to utilize a number of possible options available in Rhinoceros to create a vertical parametric system along with the plug-ins known as Grasshopper and Firefly; using Arduino and Tinkerkit to explore multiple facade options for the final product. The major implications of the project were to make the system work properly and to develop the components (Facade structure, floors, elevator access, materials) of the vertical object.

Inspirational Drawings (collage exploration).

These symmetrical sketches helped me to think about the way I wanted to design my model. I knew it needed to be vertical but did not know if I wanted it to be a twisted tower or completely vertical. After analyzing the drawings, I decided I wanted my tower to have a twisted look. Additionally, I also developed the skin pattern of my tower based on these sketches and collages. 8.1

Titanium material properties and proper lighting were applied to the pattern to obtain a realistic look. The challenge was to merge all the parts of the tower by developing different Grasshopper codes.

Cinematic Views

The purpose of this parametric tower is to induce people to make more connection and to socialize with other people. The use of technology has made us forget what we were created for. Humans were created to walk and socialize. It is important to combine three of the most important elements in an architectural object to make people feel comfortable enough to build trust with other people; The least amount of technology involved (cars), an interesting facade, and green space. The combination of these three elements, if successful, could positively make an important impact in our modern society. Orange Coast College | 3-D Modeling: Rhino 2 Spring | 2018
