ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE INSTRUCTOR: COLEMAN GRIFFITH STUDIO: ARCH 10B YEAR: SPRING 2010


ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE Objective: To establish a relationship between the orchestra and the community using architecture. External Reference: Single out an acoustic musical instrument limited from the orchestra. Investigate the instrument performs through form, material and components. Process: Analyze an instrument and understand how produces sound. Research how its sound is affected by its form, material and components. Site Analysis: Grand Central Market is located in downtown Los Angeles between Hill and Broadway. Trumpet Grand Central Market is one of a few farmers markets in Los Angeles. At lunch it servers the local communities. Bunker Hill and Broadway are two close communities. Bunker Hill houses the Los Angeles financial district. It’s home to the Museum of Contemporary Art, The Walt Disney Concert Hall, Music Center and Colburn School of Performing Arts. It also houses some of Los Angeles tallest high rise. The community has a big number of large private cultural institutions making it an expensive area to live but an attractive destination for Art, Music and Theater. Broadway Blvd is known for its larger collection of theatres. Most have been converted into store fronts. Just to name a few landmarks in the area Los Angeles Theatre, Million Dollar Theater and the Bradbury Building. This community mainly supplies immigrant shoppers and downtown residence.

Amplification The act or result of amplifying, enlarging, or extending.

Compression

Reverberation

Elongation

The result of the subjection of a material to compressive stress, resulting in reduction of volume.

A reverberation, or reverb, is created when a sound is produced in an enclosed space causing a large number of echoes to build up and then slowly decay as the sound is absorbed by the walls and air.

BODIES & SKINS/CURVES & SURFACE INSTRUCTOR: NEIEL NORHEIM STUDIO: ARCH 12B SEMESTER: SPRING 2009


BODIES & SKINS/CURVES AND SURFACE Description: A curve developed with 7 equally distributed control points. The control points are aligned with the Curve in order to mold into different form. First, we manipulate the curve in 2D and forming the curves into 3D. The Curve is copied and ordinated. Both curves are then used to create a surface. The surfaces are duplicated to form to make a 3D form. Objective: An understanding of NURB software though the use of CURVES. A basic command of manipulating curves with control points. Deriving from a noncomplex shape we develop a complex form with characteristic. Task comprise of design using Rhino using several commands that encompass rebuilding, lofting, offset and serial sections.

SEQUENTIAL SPACES INSTRUCTOR: COLEMAN GRIFFITH STUDIO: ARCH 10B SEMESTER: FALL 2010


SEQUENTIAL SPACES Description: Spatial sequence develops the understanding of order in spaces through the use of circulation, interlocking and adjacent spaces.

Objective: Find a residence that houses private and public spaces to develop a physical model of sequential organization. It must embody interlocking spaces and a circulation. Derive a circulation diagram and spatial diagram around private spaces to develop a sequence of order. Circulation will release each interlocking space.

CAMPUS CENTER INSTRUCTOR: COLEMAN GRIFFITH CLASS: ARCH 20A SEMESTER: FALL 2011


PASADENA CITY COLLEGE Description: Investigate the unique relationship between architectural and landscape. Emphasize the relationship between a building and its landscape. Through folding and deforming spaces in order to define organic and artificial forms. To blur the relationship between landscapes, urban planning and landscape define new exciting and interesting spaces. Objective: Design an urban landscape thorugh emphasize relationship between landscape and buildings. Site: Alumni Common space on the Pasadena City College Campus in Pasadena, Ca. The project will be in the middle of campus between several buildings. It separates buildings and the parking structure. The design blends landscape and architecture. Concept: I started with a Leraning theory and an external refference that would resemble the learning theory.

LEARNING THEORY Adults have acquired a coherent body of experience—associations, concepts, values, feelings, conditioned responses—frames of reference that define their life world. Frames of reference are the structures of assumptions through which we understand our experiences.

EXTERNAL REFFERNCE to them. Once the cells use the oxygen, the leftover carbon dioxide is sent back through the same tubes and out through the spiracles when the caterpillar relaxes its body.

The Breathing Process The tracheal system, which controls the caterpillar’s breathing, filters and carries oxygen to body parts inside the caterpillar. This system is found in the last three segments of a caterpillar’s multisegmented body. Once oxygen is squeezed in, entering through the spiracles on the side of the caterpillar’s body, it is delivered through microscopic tubes called tracheoles, which penetrate between cells and thus send oxygen directly
