HOUSE FOR THE ANCESTOR

Course: AR702 Topic: Single Family Dwelling Instructor: Alan Rosenblum The House for the Ancestor derives from an exploration of the experiential program of a highly individualized ancestral member. In this case, the client takes on the occupation of a Rocket Scientist, leading to a program that values cleanliness and order, spatial and organizational logic, and an eye towards the heavens. A clean facade graces the urban street with a single vertical canyon entrance to the house. Circulation begins as an ascent through the building’s various spaces, beginning at the public living room and ending at the private roof-top observation deck. A detached master bedroom rests on the back of the site along with a separate office and workshop

THE MONASTERY [ DISPERED ]

Course: AR703 Topic: Site Analysis, Programming Instructor: Jared Bradley The Monastery is an architecture as much about program as it is about site. Sweeping ocean views contrast deep enclosed eucalyptus groves; a large gently sloping field ends abruptly as the grade steepens into a cliff side. In designing the Monastery for a fictitious sect of Sufism, the concepts of siting--rising above or cutting into the earth, perching over the ocean or nestling into existing vegetation--become the drivers behind a highly charged architecture. Studies of linearity, clustering, and dispersal lead to a chassis to which programmed elements are placed by hierarchies, circulation, natural bound-

STAGGERING STACKS

Course: AR704 Topic: Medium Density Housing Instructor: Phillip Bossart Barrio Logan in Downtown San Diego is a community on the rise. The Staggering Stacks provide housing encompassing an entire two block site in the shade of the Coronado Bridge. Each site is a uniform 30’ x 100’ swatch with zero setback street frontage. My building introduces nine new custom dwelling units, a commercial space, and rooftop terrace offering an elevated view of the bay. Circulation branches at key junctions to provide a personalized approach to each unit, avoiding the double loaded corridor and ensuring a functional shared living environment. Number of Units: 9 Unit Types: 4

Course: AR801 Topic: Sustainable Design Instructor: Jeff Parshalle The design of the Hillcrest mixed-use library block is centered principally around a careful consideration for the program’s sustainability. During the design process, solar and wind studies, site orientation, and advanced HVAC system designs were meticulously incorporated into the program that called for a 16,000 square foot library with additional retail space and residential units. Through the use of daylighting strategies, the Library’s final design not only saves energy, but it creates a healthy public learning environment, as well.

[3] finally, the programmatic elements begin to take embryonic forms informed by a common language that opens up blocks for plazas and alternate way finding.

[1] first we determine that our proposal will introduce approximately 1,350,000 cubic feet of new program into this sector of c street.

[2] next we break the program into relative portions and strategically select existing structures that will be demolished to accommodate our new program.

Morphing the discovery of the Urban Canyon with the form of the Natural Canyon, the C Street Corridor Music Lab emerges from an existing cliff side, introducing a public traverse inspired by erosive paths over and through the building. Owing to the unique site, the North and South approaches to the building present very different scales in relation with the street. On B Street, the Lab’s 45 foot floating street wall is a step down from the colossal Symphony Towers to the West. On A Street, a cafe with a 15 foot street wall faces into the residential neighborhood of Cortez Hill, bridging the community with the core. The promenade from Cortez Hill into the plaza of the Lab conducts the visitor through a narrow pass, emerging into sweeping views of the public park across the street and down the gently sloped terrace that forms the roof of the museum and recording studios below.

Course: AR803 Topic: Concrete as Material Instructor: ADRIANA CUELLAR MANIFESTO: The Zeitgeist is dead. What remains is a plurality of ideas--a grab bag of process--informing architecture that it must address the present. This in-the-moment design can be given an identity through its role as temporarily contemporary. In the built environment, contemporaneity must be revealed through special effects of materiality, exhibiting current tectonic technology. Concrete's special effects: MASS, VOID, VOLUME, TEXTURE, COLOR, FORM, TRANSLUCENCY. Concrete, as a material of mass in architecture, must be defined as a function of time and movement--that being flow. From the moment cement, water, and aggregate are combined, concrete is introduced to a set of physical laws principally governed by time and movement. This is flow. Under its own weight, concrete gravitates to fill the voids where it remains unobstructed by mass as formwork. Formwork is mass, then void. Concrete is void, then mass. In the negotiation between “figure and ground”, concrete will define the spatial “figure” (MASS) while absence of concrete will define the “ground” (VOID). Due to the plastic nature of concrete, interior and exterior textures become an intense trace of construction, consecrating the process of flow. Construction of formwork is made contemporary through the use of digital technologies in fabrication. The removal of formwork is as haptic as its construction. Burning, cutting, prying, melting, stripping, sand blasting, acid washing, all are tools of technology to break down the classical barriers of concrete construction. Memory is caste and cured mass. Living is negotiated mass. [ 23 ]

The design of the Bordeaux Chair re-imagines the structural concept behind Rem Koolhaas’ Bordeaux House. A single steel cable is attached to the front of the seat, allowing the back to cantilever over a central hinge. This feature, along with the chair’s angles, allow the user to feel a sense of weightlessness in the comfortably reclined position. The chair is designed for reading as its primary function and the low back secures the shoulder blades, while the arm rests extend to support the elbows for holding a book. The warm jatoba wood seat, back, and arm rests feel comfortable against the users skin while contrasting the cold steel frame, giving the chair a distinct modern while rustic aesthetic.
