Modern House / GUEST HOUSE MODEL

Margaret Marsh / B.A. / Princeton ‘13

A series of projects in response to OMA’s Villa dall’Ava for Modern House studio. Final model of guest house project. Incorporates language of existing building and simultaneously extends aesthetic boundaries utilizing dynamic volumes, iconic swimming pool, and windows. Takes floating, blocked volumes of OMA’s existing structure and shears them, designating the pool as the very heart of the design. Extrapolations of OMA’s picture windows implemented to create relationships through intentional alignments and viewpoints. Ultimately, the guest house becomes a play on elements used by OMA, and yet works to destabilize its role as a modern canon. Materials: Basswood and plexi, laser cut.

Spring 2012 Professor: Paul Lewis 1

Modern House / GUEST HOUSE STUDIES

Margaret Marsh / B.A. / Princeton ‘13

Studies of original OMA house and responsive guest house design. Sketch models exploring form, structure, and presentation of both original and new design. Axonometric progression analysis testing tensions and shearing between volumes of final guest house. Materials: Chipboard and museum board.

Modern House / BOOKCASE PROJECT

Margaret Marsh / B.A. / Princeton ‘13

Bookcase in response to OMA’s Villa dall’Ava. Utilizes geometric punctures and shifting volumes from language of original house. Specific geometries taken from OMA’s use of stacked volumes as well as monumental windows. The floating volumes that manifest the bookcase presents duality of storage: interior compartments and exterior shelves. Design sketches, production sheet, and Basswood Model. Materials: Basswood

Radical Conservation / AXONOMETRICS

Margaret Marsh / B.A. / Princeton ‘13

Projects responding to preservation and restoration efforts in Marfa, TX. Design for conservation lab and storage facility for the Chinati and Judd Foundations. Axonometric analyses of materials, program, and circulation. Blue and brown panels represent placement of glass and wood elements respectively, illustrating project’s materiality. Grey blockings highlight “wet” and “dry” spaces - working conservation and stagnant storage. Finally, a digitized path is lifted out of the project, showing the endless opportunities for unique permutations of circulation.

Radical Conservation / FINAL MODEL

Margaret Marsh / B.A. / Princeton ‘13

Final model and site model for conservation lab and storage facility for the Chinati and Judd Foundations in Marfa, Texas. Units created through programmatic requirements and spatial concerns as expressed by client. Hinging programs give flexible and digitized feel to storage containers and conservation programs. Systematic sprawling allows for repetitive units, pavilions, and multiple access points. Main building utilized for visitor services and lab practices. Extensive sprawled storage with unstructured circulation space to allow for complex maneuvering of object conservation. Storage primarily underground, but roofs visible at street level to promote awareness of vast operations, yet provide environmental security from the elements. Materials: Basswood and plexi laser cut, MDF jigsawed and milled.

GRID CREATION

Unit creation for artist’s colony in Brooklyn, NY. Uses object requirements to formulate spatial restraints, which in turn promote a quadrangular grid. To create consistent yet unique units, the original grid is implemented in each accommodation space. Programs hinge
