UCLA Media Ctr. Media Input/Output

PREFACE: Social media has changed the world. From how we receive our news to communicating with friends and family, we can stay closer than ever before. Social media has changed the way information is received. Recently Wiki Leaks has made an impact on government. The ability to give important information to sources has made many governments nervous. Other social media outlets such as Facebook has led changes to governments as we have seen in Egypt and the Middle East. Today’s social media has intertwined into our lives and has changed the way we live. SITE: 1116 Gayley Blvd. Westwood, Ca. 94387 OBJECTIVE: Create an educational extension for UCLA. This extension will have educational programs such as classrooms, offices, infrastructure. This new Media School will also be intertwined with professional media outlets such as paper news room, TV News outlet, Spaces for lectures and a Media Library. This location will also house areas for anonymous ‘drop off’ offices that public can drop off sensitive information secretly. CONCEPT: iPhone - Data Transfer: Daily use of your hand held communication device can seem harmless. What you see on your display may not show you what information your device is sharing. Although usage of popular apps such as google maps may help, sensitive information such as your location, personal phone codes and your personal contacts are collected by this app and sold to third party marketing groups. This project is about the seen and unseen programs within this Media School Archive

WILSHIRE BLVD. CORRIDOR: When researching this project, the significance of Wilshire Blvd. and its history was very important to understanding the need of this site. As Los Angeles grew in size, it reached our west toward the ocean. Wilshire Blvd. became a major thorough fair for commerce and international business. Over time Wilshire Blvd. became the main vein of the west side creating a social economic datum. As the diagram to the right shows neighboring cities, their population and average household income. The next diagram below shows the corridor and all the international embassies. When researching change that social media has assisted with, the importance of the melting pot that Los Angeles is, Wilshire Blvd. has become the main artery that feeds into international location then onto international connections. Religion has fueled many conflicts so the importance to know when religious worship places are in conjunction to socio economic areas is interesting. How people move through this area was studied. If our site was to offer a place of protest, or an area with anonymity, circulation needs to be easy and available. New plans of the LA Metro Purple Line extending its reach below Wilshire, local bus lines and streets are all circulation routes through the Site. (To the right and below, group research diagrams.)

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN 10B COLEMAN GRIFFITH PASADENA CITY COLLEGE FALL 2009


Forgotten Spaces Form Through Subtraction

PREFACE: The Forgotten Spaces Project is a 3 week exercise in creating form. This exercise will transform a real space into a bounding box. The product of this exercise is a Solid/Void relationship in form. OBJECTIVE: Locate a public space with area’s of opportunity for ‘found’ spaces. Use its spatial experience to create shapes and forms within a collage photo composition. Then transform and combine these forms to subtract its area from a 8” cube. Finally, create a physical model showing both positive and negative forms and their qualities. MATERIALS: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Rhino and Maxwell Render; Masonite for final model

Photograph and collage of a public space with areas of forgotten space.

Identify spaces within the collage of opportunity of realized spaces.

Space’s identified and three demensional shapes are formed. Free transform these forms.

An 8” cube to model realized spaces created by obsquiring the shapes from the realized space.

Combining all the realized forms, the transform tool was used to create this shape.


The two objects are combined.

The realized form shape was subtracted from the cube.

The realized form was then contoured.

The cube was contoured. This created a template for laser cutting material for the physical model.

Spatial Sequence COURSE INSTRUCTOR SCHOOL TERM

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN 10B COLEMAN GRIFFITH PASADENA CITY COLLEGE FALL 2009


Spatial Sequence Unlocking Public/ Private Spaces PREFACE: The Spacial Sequence study is an exercise in understanding spacial types from adjacent to interlocking, public and private, etc. This is important when organizing and understanding program. Circulation can activate program as well the relationship with interlocking spaces. OBJECTIVE: Select a case study that exhibits a clear use of public and private space. Develop diagrams and spacial sequence models that demonstrate the relationships between circulation and the spaces that it intersects. Build segments in sequential order allowing circulation segments to unlock public segments. Identify all spaces and circulation throughout your case study. Produce a physical model that shows the sequence of circulation and how it activates the interlocking public spaces. This model will be like an unfolding puzzle that reveals itself through the sequence of circulation and spaces.

55 Blair St./ Ong&Ong Singapore 2007

When researching 55 Blair St. residence, Ong & Ong architects were faced with a very linear design plan. Opening the ground floor and creating the experience through interior and exterior spaces creates a dramatic effect. All private functions were lifted to upper floor with views of interlocking spaces into the public areas.

Cardboard Comfort COURSE INSTRUCTOR SCHOOL TERM

MATERIALS 14 DIONICIO VALDEZ PASADENA CITY COLLEGE SPRING 2010


Cardboard Comfort Finding Structure You Can Sit On PREFACE: The Cardboard Comfort project is an exercise in understanding the structural qualities of cardboard. Cardboard is widely available and is a renewable source of material. The unique attributes of cardboard is the corrugated flutes sandwiched within a layer of cardboard. These flutes add cushion and rigidity to itself. Understanding the physical properties of these structural system can lead to useful products not intended for this material. Through folding, bending, waffling, egg crating, find a system that exploits this materials structural properties and create a chair. OBJECTIVE: Using one piece of 1 ply, 4’x8’ cardboard, construct a chair that would be able to support up to 225lbs. Through folding, bending, egg crating of weaving, find a system to create a structure for a seat. MATERIALS: A single 4’x8’ sheet of 1ply cardboard.

Rhino, an ellipse shape was created. A CV point cage was then applied.

Adjusting the CV points, the original shape was minipulated.


Contours were created on the verticle axis.

Contours were created on the horizontal axis.

Contours from the vertical and horizontal were matched to create the final form.

Minimal Surface (re)Imagining the Villa NM

PREFACE: This project will be sited on the footprint of the Villa NM House and will use the primary steel structural members of the now burnt out shell as a bounding box. This old structural system will serve as the new structural system for this design, think of it as an existing exoskeleton for a new parasitic intervention. SITE: Villa NM/New York 2006 UN Studios OBJECTIVE: Create a form/enclosure to the frame work at a number of specific points to show how the new and the old can coexist. It is important that this structural frame be used much like the diagrammatic box of your Minimal Surface model. Using the existing structure as a bounding box, a relationship between a complex form and a primitive shape is retained. This shape then can be repeated to create an exhibition space that can be placed into this residence.

Using a bounding box created by the existing structure, an arc was created from points A to B. All arc’s were connected using the Loft tool. This form was not suitable for construction of this space. The outer and inner curves were then pulled from the “ill-form”. This was my guide to create a true form. By Lofting these two curves, then offsetting those surfaces, this form is a buildable form.


Using the bounding box from the first floor, the two curves are applied. The second set of curves are then applied to complete the first floor module. The same process is used for the second floor bounding box and third floor bounding box. To complete the structure, hallways and stairs were applied between levels.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN 10B COLEMAN GRIFFITH PASADENA CITY COLLEGE FALL 2009


Bunker Hill Resonance Park

PREFACE: This project is sited on the historic Bunker Hill. Located in the heart of Los Angeles, it offers the only green space and park atmosphere. It also divides two distinct soicio econmic classes. With the Finacial District at the top and the bustling sity below.This historic site is a tourist attaction with the iconic Angels Flight. This project will investigate the relationship of the traditional symphony orchestra and the community. How can music create a new place of community blending and enjoyment. We will investigate a musical instrument and use it qualities and traits as a system tomanipulate a surface into spaces. SITE: Bunker Hill / Los Angeles, CA. OBJECTIVE: Create a public space where community and music can meet and blur the thresh hold known as Bunker Hill. Three perormance spaces are required as well as circulation onto Cal Plaza. Investigate a musical instument and its unique qualities. Create a concept from your instrument in the orchestra, used it’s quality to a create a performance park.

CONCEPT: RESONATE: to amplify vocal sound by vibration of air in certain cavities. REVERBERATE: to be reflected many times, as sound waves from the walls of a confined space. The trumpet aplifies its vibration through the buzzing created from the mouthpiece throughout the bell. Materiality and a conical shape aplify the vibration into sound. Using this idea, spaces can perform similiarly. Image to the Right: Range ‘C’. Sweep 1Khz - 100Khz. Input signal 150mV p-p triangle. Mid-range resona nt frequency. High ‘Q’. Note interference pattern and peaks caused by changing harmonic relationships at different points of resonance. This pattern can be used to manipulate surface into spaces.

Histroy of Bunker Hill For decades, city planners have seen Downtown’s Bunker Hill as an obstacle rather than a feature. They’ve tunneled under it, cut across it, and when all else failed simply lowered it. Bunker Hill is located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, California. The hill is a short, developed hill that has gone through major development changes throughout history. Transformations from landscape, residential suburb, dense urban neighborhoods, massive slumclearance project, to a modern financial hub. Although the site has been through many transformations Bunker hill has always been a physical and socioeconomic barrier for merging identities and cultures. The diagrams shown on these pages represent a group research project. Studying the history of Bunker Hill and the community that occupies it was essential to understanding a space. Sound Topography: When visiting the site and researching how people were using the space we noticed that variance in ambient sound. Since we are to incorporate places of performances to bring the community together, understanding the acoustics was important. The diagram on the left is a creation of a sound topography. We mapped out Bunker Hill and recorded decibel readings. This can help inform areas where performance can happen.
