Riverside Revival

01

Master Plan |Adaptive Reuse| Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill Collaborators: J.Stafford, J. Moctezuma

Located along a 9.4H, multi-parcel riverfront site, the master plan incorporates the revitalization of two decommissioned industrial buildings and proposal for 240,000 sq. m of new mixed-use development. The existing power plant buildings form the foundation for the site, solidifying the development with strong identity and distinct architectural character. These historic buildings are complemented by 240,000 sq. m of new development designed strategically to revitalize the historic site. The program consists of retail, cultural facilities, a hotel, and office space that accent the historic buildings and are arranged to support the concept of an open, vibrant public environment that weaves together new and old. Industrial buildings from several eras on our site lend forms of pitched roofs and exposed structural lattices that serve to give a sense of scale and entry. Punched walls, long extruded building forms, vertical exterior articulation, and skyline chimneys that are tall and rounded provide a sense of grandeur and importance of the site. After working within our team to develop the site massing, my role was to articulate the twin towers which will be the primary focus of these selected works.

Permanent Installation// felt, steel, & aluminum (14’ x 6’ x 6’) Kennerly Architecture & Planning Building M, 650 Indiana, San Francisco Individual Project

Located in KAP’s newly completed residential ‘Building M’ on 650 Indiana Street in San Francisco, the felt and steel installation resides in the building’s lobby where it acts to soften the area’s acoustic reveberation and diffuse overhead lighting. Acting as a buffer between the gated entryway and the building’s primary circulation core, the cut-andfastened 1” thick felt is hung in alternating 5’-0” sections and offset between the wall and ceiling panels. This allows for a break in the rhythm of the material as it flow upwards and approaches a 90° turn in its orientation. One of the primary constraints of the design was working within the limitation of the felt panel sizes. Maxing out at 75” long and 62” wide per section, the mechanical connections tying the concrete and felt would require some sensitivity towards the overall wall length and its relationship to the folded material tolerance. In addition, the installation had to be designed with a sensitivity to several overhead access panels, and life-safety devices.

Adjacencies

03 3D printed model construction Clark Thenhaus, Endemic Architecture Music Hall, spring 2018

Studio Endemic’s submission for Adjacencies, a 2018 exhibition for the Yale School of Architecture looks at a bold new concept for a Music Hall in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. All texture was modeled with 3/32” tolerance. The model was then 3d printed into 32 separate pieces from PLA, friction welded, and texture-finished by hand over four weeks.

Digital Craft Lab, Wild+ Domestic Andrew Kudless + Nathan Lynch, California college of the Arts Advanced Studio, Spring 2018 Individual project / Jury Prize Award

The Brief: The various creation myths of architecture often alternate between early man either occupying found forms such as caves or constructing a primitive hut. Vitruvius mentions both of these possible origins for Architecture but he also mentions a third which is often forgotten: the possibility that humans first started building by watching more advanced builders: animals. Although we often think of architecture as a human activity, the diversity and sophistication of animal architectures are astounding. In an age when we are finally recognizing the extent of our deep relationships with the environment around us and the microbiome within us, the project focuses on merging old techniques with rapidly evolving technologies: the precisioned tooling of digitally extruded clay fabrication that mimics the construction of caves, dens, nests, dams and other animal habitats. My studies eventually lead me to the Mexican Long-Tongued Bats- a keystone species that regulate a complex and sweeping ecosystem ranging across north America. From San Diego to El Salvador, these migratory mammals travel in search of food and suitable maternity roosts. Along their path, they act as the sole pollinators of several cacti, tropical fruits, and species of agave. The project focuses in on the bat as a key player for sustainable and biodynamic mezcal production, and the ways in which humans can become wild by learning to cohabitate with more of the animals they rely on. The design of a parametric brick system (bat housing) acts as the structural component to a variable building module. Through aggregation, the modules assemble to create extrasmall, small, and medium dwellings.

The Gilroy Stitch

05

Integrated Building Design, High Speed Low Speed Randolph Ruiz & Jeffrey Logan, California college of the Arts Advanced Studio, Fall 2017 Collaborator: Zachary Fish

The Gilroy Stitch High speed Rail proposal is working with a “Modified-at-grade” solution. This situates both the Cal Train and High Speed rail tracks at 20’-0” above grade, with an additional required 23’-0” overhead clearance required for electrical lines. This scheme works to cut the site in half, effectively creating the zones of “Old Gilroy” west of Monterey Avenue, and “New Gilroy” west of Alexander Street. The city of Gilroy proposes that the development within “New Gilroy” will eventually create the conditions of a “mini silicone valley” with development stretching past Highway 101. In order to achieve a linkage between Old and New Gilroy, proposals need to either cross the site at Grade below the Right of Way or will to design crossings above 46’-0” to maintain safe clearance for train traffic. At the minimum 46’ clearance, this would situate the proposal as the largest building in its surrounding context, and therefore, building upwards was designed with great care and consideration. To mitigate the impact on the site, our project proposes two concrete-framed head-houses on each side of the tracks, one that opens up to Alexander street, with another greeting guest from the Monterey side. Two bridges, one public pedestrian at-grade crossing, and another, the elevated 64’-0” high concourse will link two head-houses. A single roof structure, the glass, steel, and Teflon shed “stitches” the two sides abutting the train tracks together. This shed not only acts as the structural frame holding up our concourse and linking the two buildings, but also works on a larger scale to regulate the collection of solar and water on the site, regulate thermal gains and passive ventilation, and also acts to unify the architectural conditions of each respective piece of program by introducing a regulated “ architecture of difference.” This architectural expression allows the project to maintain a rhythm of solidity and mass imbued in the concrete architecture that is topped by the lighter, more sinuous shed structure.

Project VISTA

Advanced Studio: Means of Production, Future Factories Jason Kelley Johnson, California college of the Arts Advanced Studio, Fall 2016 Collaborator: Javier Moctezuma / Jury Prize recipient

Visual Integration Systems for Trans-humanist Augmentation. The factory of the future will not be a black box operated by automation, but a place of human centered production that will optimize the human experience. ... Robots are great for automating repetitive tasks, but the expense and complexity of teaching robots to identify and respond organically means that body augmented humans will become the dominant force in future manufacturing. VISTA takes a look at the future of human augmentation, creating a framework that can allow the building’s program to flexibly align to meet the needs of its clientele. The studio collaborated with Autodesk over a three month period, using Pier 9 as the site for adaptive reuse. Stripping the existing building down to its minimum tectonics, our team developed an armature that would work with modular, movable pods. This expression gives the building a constantly shifting identity. VISTA’s program is loosely organized into three categories: Eye repair, eye enhancement, and eye advancement. To allow our audience to better understand the project’s concept and branding, we developed augmented and virtual reality tools to represent the architecture as well as the concept of advanced vision.

Victorian Grotesque The Victorian typology is one which has been adorned and even fetishized by the inhabitants of San Francisco. Cheaply produced, standardized parts come together to provoke the kitsch, the playful and the dramatic. Yet, Victorian architecture has had a lively evolution from modest ‘stick’ row houses to the more ornate and elaborate Queen-Ame Victorians. Their short-lived tenancy for well-to-do occupants was followed by decades of neglect, housing for the lower class and poor families, then adopted by counter cultures such as hippies and artists. Once single family residences, these homes would become communes and collectives. Today, they are multi-family units carved up to maximize profit. Scale Model: 1/4”=1’-0”

Their formal transitions from one space to another are eclecticized by the notion of materiality, comfort, and sinuous means of circulation. The Victorian represents privacy, fortitude, and mass. It is wholly body, eclipsed by its facade, face, or mask.

DEL MAGUEY | Ensemble murcielago As a part of my explorations in Casa Ensemble, I started to take a deep look at the pridctuion of Mezcal and fell in love with the ethos of Del Maguey’s single village distilleries, the rich narrative of their processes, and their simple, tasteful branding. Learning from the successes of Ken Price’s work, I created my own label to complement the architecture that had been inspired by it.

KINECT + GRASSHOPPER These models are an extension of VISTA, a semester-long studio looking at The Factory of the Future. A huge component of the studio was our collaboration with Autodesk- this enable us shop access, a materials budget, and technical mentoring. My practical interest was in replication the concept of “new vision.” Using a kinect, an 7” HD monitor and some museum board, I hacked the Kinect and connected it to Firefly, a grasshopper plug-in. Using the kinect’s point-cloud construction and field-depth tools, I was able to feed images from the helmet’s connect directly to a monitor in side the helmet. This ‘augmented’ vision was our first step in making our architecture concept more approachable to our audience.
