F.U.G. COMPLEX The project responds strongly to the surrounding context by incorporating two main site factors to its form definition. At first, the pedestrian and vehicle’s flows generate a dinamic context. Then, the project also responds by merging into the existent buildings and metro line by appling a transect, which generates a gradual growth of height. Both factors are then involved in an experimental methodology, which results in a curved surface. The F.U.G. Complex intends to generate a new kind of urbanism, a urbanism in which exterior and interior spaces are merged and complemented with one another. It’s program involves a mixed use program including housing, offices, commerce and a cultural center.

DESIGN FACTORS Context’s people and car flows are projected into the site bouncing in equivalent angles inside project’s site.

Transect is applied to blend the project with the surrounding context.

09


MONTERREY, N.L., MEXICO The site is located in the center of Monterrey, a highly occupied area with in the city, but including mainly low height constructions. As shown, the site is the main connection node, in which four main streets converge. Also, the site is frequently transited by people which uses the different metro stations and people who use the school, which is also part of the block.

DESIGN FACTORS

The design methodology involves an experimental manipulation of the site’s existent flows, which are considered to enter the site and bounce in its limits by reflecting in same angles.

1

PEDESTRIAN FLOWS The two main pedestrian flows come from the metro starion and the school. This flows are important to consider because of the necessity of connecting

VEHICLE FLOWS 2

Two main vehicle flows are shown in the diagram, which represent the two main streets that affect directly the site, because of their vehicle density and the large amount of distance in touch with the site.

TRANSECT As shown in the diagram, transect

CITIZEN PARK The citizen park arises as a struggle for the rights that we have as a community, which is why the project gives rise to activities that promote democracy, coexistence, the free expression of ideas and that also fulďŹ ll the function of providing a green area with spaces for rest, relaxation and connection with nature. On the other hand, the park is an accessible and inclusive place, respecting its uses, customs and current flora, also serving as a mean of connection that facilitates access and pedestrian flows.

DESIGN FACTORS Several factors were used to determine the design of the park, among which is the factor of the conservation of the existing flora, the facilitation of pedestrian flows and the creation of an inclusive multifunctional space.

1. Actual Pedestrian Flows

2. Actual Pedestrian Flows + Ideal Flows

3. Resultant Pathways + Respect to Existant Flora + Proposed Vegetation

5. Adding “Citizen Platform”

26

4. Emphasis of the project’s center

6. Final definition of the project


MASTER PLAN

ILLUMINATION The lighting was designed to increase the security of the park. The lamps were strategically placed along all the pathways and important areas. VEGETATION The vegetation was determined by selecting native trees and shrubs that would give the park more appeal. These, require little irrigation and support the climate of the site, plus they go according to a deďŹ ned color palette, which helps the relaxation of the users according to the theory of color.

FURNITURE DIAGRAMS The furniture responds to the intention of generating spaces of coexistence, giving rise to diverse activities, where the citizen can participate and appropriate the park. Likewise, it was designed in an inclusive manner and accessible to all. Concrete was considered as the main material due to its durability, moldability and low cost.

28


SECTIONS

For landscape design, the human scale was considered as an important factor, involving the user in a natural and different environment. This was done through the consideration of native plants that had different heights to hide the barriers of the context, thus creating a positive environment.

SONO PARK METRO STATION The Sono Park project starts with the analysis of its surrounding factors and the proposal of an added parasite to the existent metro line to create around it a public space, which can reactivate the zone. The project responds mainly to the site’s problematic of noise pollution generated by the highly transited streets, almost all day long, and through an experimental design, generating a urban infrastructure which can isolate people from the daily stress and offer them a green area in which activities such as skating, parkouring, bicycling, or even walking can take place. By solving also, the lack of green areas in the zone, the Sono Park becomes a lung to the surrounding neighbors, offering a methodology that could be repeated along all metro lines to offer people a different ways to do excersice and have fun.

MAJOR SITE FACTORS

43


Monterrey, N.L., Mexico The site is located in the center of Monterrey, a highly occupied area with in the city, but including mainly low height constructions. As shown, the site is the main connection node, in which four main streets converge and because of that the site is highly polluted with noise. There are no green areas available in walkable distances.

44

Main Roads Urban Buffers at 400 m. River Green Area Metro Starion


SITE ANALYSIS The site analysis starts with the sound analysis and the different sources that produce it in the site. While the metro station sound waves travel in a back and forth movement, the traffic sound waves travel in only one direction, but the traffic lights also generate points of more noise density than others.

Metro sound waves back and forth direction

Car one direction sound waves

Traffic lights generating spaces with more noise density.

45


DESIGN METHODOLOGY The design methodology starts by representing the sound waves in the metro line and generating a surface from it.

Existing site and metro line.

Sound waves of the metro are ďŹ rst represented as if it was starionary.

The moving metro generates different and gradual lenghts of sound waves, which respond to movement.

The sound waves are repeated in the opposite direction.

46


DESIGN METHODOLOGY Then, the surface is triangulated to make the structure more functional and modular.

A surface is generated from the waves shown and also responding to the noise acumulation in the trafďŹ c lights by contracting above them.

Openings to let sound out

The smooth surface is then triangulated, and for sound to scape from the inside activities some triangular panels are removed.

A tubular steel structure is added to support the concrete panels. The project is also made more wide to properly let circulations pass though it.

Finally the methodology is applied to merge the “parasite� with the metro terminal, showin that the methodology can easily adapt to any other station.

47


STRUCTURE AND FUNCTIONALITY Circulations in the project develop in an interesting way, by providing two lateral ramps which embrace the whole lenght.The ramps not only allow people who visit the park to comfortably walk through the park, but also generate an interestingconnection to the irregular floor. Structure consists mainly in steel bar supporting the project and laying in the existent metro structure.

ITESM DESIGN CENTER The present project is located within the Campus Tec Monterrey, in Monterrey Nuevo Leon. Its main objective is to provide a variety of spaces that satisfy the needs both academic, social and urban, within the campus. For this, they took in consideration the most important variants of the district regeneration plan tec which are; use of facade that minimizes the increase of temperatures and the energetic consumption, green roofs, orientation elements, access to public spaces, promote pedestrian flows thus reducing road distances and the creation of outdoor public spaces. Likewise, for the formal design was taken into consideration three fundamental factors, which respond to the variants already mentioned; adequate flows for the pedestrian, spatial experience that produces pleasant views and conservation of trees. These three factors give a unique identity to the project, at the same time have a high relevance in terms of beneďŹ ts, not only to students, but also to the environment.

PAPE BIRD OBSERVATION TOWER Pape nature park is a place of reunion and communion between humans and nature. The bird observation tower becomes part of the representation of the reunion of humans, birds and animals. The tower stands as a platform that allows people to interact with the migrating birds . Pape park history is full with achievements that regenerated natural life cycle from the site, that previously was driven out from agriculture. The aim of the project is to respond to site conditions, animal species, and a low cost- energy efficient constructive process that doesn’t interrupt Pape’s natural wildlife . The tower stands as a light structure that can be lost in the lanscape, allowing animals, birds and humans to use it and interact with it. The tower intervention complements the value of Pape Park by allowing human - animals species’ interactions and honoring wildlife. The tower becomes the home of the park where life is appreciated.

PAPE NATURAL PARK, PAPE, LATVIA The Pape Nature Park opened in 2003 and is located in the South-West region of Latvia, in the districts of NÄŤca and Rucava. The park is a nature reserve in the south west region of Latvia, approximately 45km south of Liepaja. The entire park stretches over 10886 hectares, and is made up of mainly bogs, meadows and dunes surrounding Lake Pape.

The heights of the platforms were designed in order for people to reach the best views possible with the allowed 11m. height. Creating a 360 platform which surpases 10m.

The modular structure allows permeability to integrate the tower with the wild life. The tower’s materiality allows also to use less materials, being an environmental friendly construction.

The bridge instead of being linear, it’s breaked in order to create different view angles, that allow the user to experience the landscape and the tower in a different way.

Susteinability

The project responds to the site considering the lowest quantity of materials possible and their easy transportation to the Pape nature park. The building responds to the enviroment loosing itself in the landscape, being useful and permeable for animals to cross through it and stand in it, as a medium for users to connect them with the species that sorrund pape nature park.

Due to the humid or wet climate, the project is developed understanding that water should go away easily during raining. Each floor has stainless steel grating that allows permeability and prevents that the materials absorve water. This material and special material treatments will allow the tower to last longer.

Wood: Valrosa Coating Ignifire treatment. Allows to prevent the wood from fires and gives it a water proof coating. Concrete: Long term water proof coating. Steel: Anticorrosive treatment for durability and to prevent oxidation

Reinforced Concrete is used in the foundations of the tower and in the pillars. Stainless Steel is used in the membrane conections from the exterior structure and in the stairs allowing the structure to be light. Wood is used in the slabs and in the exterior angular elements allowing a light structure able to deal with tension forces due to the movement.

The project was developed using a small amount of materials and elements, creating an interior space with light materials and an easy constructive process based on creating prefabricated steel and wood pieces. Having the less amount of materials and also using prefabricated elements decreases the effort to take materials to site and time for the construction.

CONSTRUCTION PROCESS SIMULATION Almost all of the constructive elements where modulated, so that the construction process became way much easier, faster and with the less amount of waste. The constructive process starts with the foundation, which consists on eight reinforced concrete piles which reach firm earth and a reinforced concrete slab. Steel connections that connect the building with the concrete slab are also soaked in concrete and welded to the foundation steel. The tower exoskeleton is constructed following the same steps in every level (placement of the wood lumbers followed by the placement of the steel connections), and finally in each level the slab is supported in the steel connections of the exoskeleton. At the end the bridge is constructed by placing first the main wood structure and finally adding the wood planks that conform the platform and stairs.
