01 - Formby Point In Praise of Slowness Third Year, Semester Two

“There is more to life than increasing its speed” - Mahatma Gandhi

Observational Pavillions

Man’s desire for convenience has created an ever-increasing disconnect to the very source that sustains us. Never before, in all ages gone by, have we been able to eat, communicate afar, and comfortably sustain ourselves without having to leave the comfort of our own homes. Albeit, without interaction to both nature and our fellow man. In this project, I have chosen to recall an early memory as a child, which occured in the slowpaced Formby beach. I chose Formby because it still provides tranquility to those wishing to escape into nature from the urban environment. Based on my study of Formby, the programme will, primarily, consist of a workshop and gallery space on the sand dunes, as well as observational pavilions in a nearby Red Squirrel reserve. The space is intended to merge the urban mind with the ecological escapist, providing a place where one can enjoy a natural setting and traditional artisan work, amidst a modern, yet befiiting, environment.

The bricks at Formby beach represent the destruction of Liverpool during World War ll. Debris from the aftermath of German air raids were dumped on the coast of Formby. The bricks remain, worn down and rounded through years of erosion.

*Farmers in Formby have been levelling the sand dunes in order to establish their asparagus fields. Each field could have been cropped for around 15 years, and new land was levelled for over 100 years.

In order to construct the workshop and gallery, a large amount of sand is to be excavated from the dunes. Holes will then be drilled 10m down into the ground. The holes will then be filled with a rebar cage and concrete.

02 - The Japanese Soup House Design for Disasters Project Third Year, Semester One

29


The Japanese Soup House will be a temporary school, designed to house young students that have been affected by an earthquake in the country of Japan. I have chosen to show the school standing in a suburban area of Kyoto, if an earthquake was to occur within the city of Kyoto or any other major Japanese city, it would be difficult to find land to build the temporary school because the city would be so densely populated. The school will consist a programme of a multi-purpose classroom on the ground floor that will house a maximum of 40 students, as well as a kitchen on the first floor where miso soup will be cooked. The polycarbonate panels will encourage food growth in the hallways of the build, and will also help control the temperature for the school classroom. The school will allow cross ventilation to take place when the polycarbonate panels are up during the winter and the aluminium rails will act as a barrier and will also help with earthquake resistance.

Harvest

Miso soup is considered as a comfort food in Japan, eaten by people almost everyday. The soup house will have a growing scheme that will encourage growth of key ingredients of miso soup for the children to enjoy during dinner time.
