Making Waves- Spring 2013 If coastal erosion persists, the coastal community of Pacifica will suffer due to sea level rise, which in turn, will drown the city over time. One solution would be to simply armor the coastline with expensive infrastructure, or we can accept this as an inevitable situation and embrace it to accommodate the surfers and citizens of Pacifica. Installing a series of public buildings on Linda Mar Beach will not only provide the necessary infrastructure to combat coastal erosion and sea level rise, but will provide the appropriate programmatic needs for the community. By exploring the temporality of architecture, the site will begin to evolve as the inevitable threat of natures fluctuating attitude puts Pacifica in harms way by adjusting and adapting to the environment.

iSymphony Spring 2012 Doris Guerrero / Judith Mussel By designing a symphony hall, it was necessary to explore and investigate the site sounds. Candle Stick Point’s rich sounds from the San Francisco Bay juxtaposed with cacophonous urban sounds creates a soundscape that’s not only uncommon, but surprisingly balanced. The building itself controls, manipulates, and takes advantage of all these sounds by the orientation of the exterior facets. By coding the building into red zones (quiet), and gray zones (loud), the occupants will easily identify with their auditory environment. The red and gray zones not only reflect or absorb sound relative to the exterior site, but they are also determining the location of the interior program to maintain a harmonious relationship between the resonance of the site and the people occupying it.

OAKLAND IN VISION

reactivating west oakland

By researching mall typologies from first century markets to modern mega malls, one common trait that is prevalent in all of them is their accessibility and convenient circulatory characteristics. Taking advantage of the attributes of the mall that are proven to work successfully, I was able to then develop a new architectural advertising scheme and mix in programs that are not typically found in quintessential malls. After determining how the circulatory paths carve their way through the site and the building masses were developed, it was necessary to facet the facades in order to allow for interactive advertisements. Unlike traditional urban advertising (billboards), the faceted panels are oriented in a way that allows the occupants optimal visual relationships with themselves and the architecture.

TUNED(URB)IN, PROMOTES AWARENESS, PROTECTION AND INTERACTION, THROUGHOUT URBAN ENVIRONMENTS USING ARDUINO SOFTWARE TO CONTROL MOTORS, LEDS, AND VIBRATING MOTORS. THE DEVICE WRAPS AROUND THE WRIST WHILE DISTANCE SENSORS ATTACHED AT THE BASE OF YOUR FEET USE ECHOLOCATION TO TUNE YOU INTO YOUR SURROUNDINGS. THE APPARATUS WILL ALERT THE USER BY VIBRATING AND EXPANDING ONCE ANYTHING COMES WITHIN FOUR FEET OF THEM, BUT ONLY AT GROUND LEVEL. SINCE IT IS ONLY PICKING UP INFORMATION AT A LOW PHYSICAL LEVEL, IT CREATES A GREATER SENSE OF CONNECTION AND STABILITY WITH THE SURROUNDING CONTEXT. THE DEVICE WILL PREFORM OPTIMALLY WHILE THE USER IS IN AN URBAN SETTING. FOR EXAMPLE, IT WOULD PROVE ITS NECESSITY FOREMOST WHILE BIKING, RUNNING, WALKING OR IF THE USER IS BLIND. THE DEVICE COULD SAVE THE USERS LIFE IF A CAR IS GETTING TOO CLOSE TO THEM WHILE RIDING THEIR BIKE, OR IF THEY ARE DISTRACTED WHILE CROSSING THE STREET. SOCIALLY, THE DEVICE INTERACTS WITH THE PUBLIC BY LIGHTING UP AND EXPANDING. EVEN IF OTHER PEOPLE ARE NOT WEARING THE BRACELET, THE DEVICE WILL NOTIFY THEM TO BE CAUTIOUS OF THEIR SURROUNDINGS. THIS PRODUCT SHOULD BE A NECESSITY FOR PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN DENSE URBAN ENVIRONMENTS. IT WILL KEEP THE PUBLIC SAFE AND AWARE OF ALL THE MOTION THAT SURROUNDS THEM.

Contrast Trunk Producing a traditional style trunk, like the kind that has been used for many purposes across centuries, may feel like it lacks the conceptual ideals that could be used in furniture design. However, by exploring materiality, texture, and surface treatments, I decided to capture a deterioration in stasis. By scorching the exterior of the trunk and allowing the interior maintain its natural and raw Cedar composition, the trunk captures the contrast between natural, aging, and degenerating form.
