// BLOCK ONE_MIXED-USE BLOCK ONE_MIXED-USE PROJECT National City, California integrated design ・ mixed-use ・ healthy urbanism ・ vertical neighborhood

Block one is located between the city of San Diego and National City, creating the opportunity for the site to act as the threshold into National City’s downtown area. Its vital location at the top north end of the master plan sets the tone for what visitors will ultimately perceive when entering the city. The vision for the project aims to design a place, not a space, in which people can move in and out of safely and freely. The vision aims to introduce the mixed-use project as a catalyst to reinvent downtown National City and better connect it with the surrounding areas by implementing bicycle oriented infrastructure and working with the MTS station, bus stops, and I-5.

// PROJECT_01_BLOCK ONE_MIXED-USE //

09

Block One is a place that the community will naturally adapt to. The design seeks to attract all the demographics which are in demand for housing while also focusing on the current urban model which includes neighborhoods of small single-family homes with back yards that house a multigenerational demographic. The culture in the area depends on large family gathering space, therefore the design ultimately relects that family suburban model by inviting families to habitat in an unfamiliar yet accommodating vertical neighborhood, ofering brief separation between homes, yet large ‘back yard’ space in the form of vast covered balconies. Those openings also function as the lungs of the building, creating porosity, cross-ventilation, as well as programmatic luency and function. The interlocking and alternating assemblage of geometries allow the building’s south face to expand and ultimately integrate program, systems, energy, architectural spacing, and environmental and climatic functions. The design solution focuses on the symbiotic relationship among its programmatic components which include residential, commercial, itness, fresh market space, public services and other elements which circulate around the necessities for a healthy human-centered and multi-sensory lifestyle. Ultimately the project will help to activate the area and set the stage for a healthier place to live, work, shop, and play.

NSAD STUDENT DORMS STUDENT DORM CLUSTERS San Diego, California cone・ clusters ・ sponging ・ student dorms ・ lecture hall ・ exhibition space ・ light wells ・ student culture ・ student lounge

The aim of this project was to create a dormitory for NewSchool students located adjacent to studio 5. The project includes a lecture hall, cofee shop, student lounge, offices and administration, a curvilinear exhibition gallery, as well as open outdoor space. The dorm areas, or ‘clusters’ vary in type and are suited for up to 12 students with their own bedrooms with a shared kitchen and living space. The primitive of the cone was the structural method applied to the project. This was conceptualized using a technique borrowed from a case study of Steven Holl’s undergraduate residences in Simmons Hall at MIT. The ‘sponge’ technique was utilized by interrupting common corridors with vertical porosity as large dynamic openings which act as the lungs of the building, bringing in natural light and moving air up through the section. The porous openings in the dorms act as social areas between clusters, as well as one which is a grand lecture hall.

// THE CAMPUS HOUSE CAMPUS HOTEL SAN DIEGO STATE UNIVERSITY San Diego, California hospitality ・ boutique hotel・ process ・ light-well ・ atrium common space ・ sdsu ・ experience・ typology

The project introduces a fairly new typological concept--a campus hotel, to San Diego State University. The concept emerged as a core home-away-fromhome type of establishment. The goal was to create a modern and sophisticated, yet humble place for visitors to the campus including student’s families, researchers, potential students, and other professionals. The concept models the boutique typology but in an educational setting, and is connected to the campus by the SDSU pedestrian bridge over College Avenue.

DESIGN CONCEPT The design concept of luidity has allowed for a canopy design that connects the building with the street activity, while also creating shading and reducing the need for cooling. The canopy also creates an outdoor public space for activities such as a public farmers market, festivals, and areas for gathering at the convention center because the convention center concept blends the indoor with the outdoor spaces. The concept is also about growth--like a tree, in the same way that Tel Aviv itself is projected for urban growth, the design concept accommodates for the growth with its many programmatic parts.

FACADE DEVELOPMENT Two towers were generated side-by-side to allow for air ventilation, natural sunlight in all directions because of its curvilinear orientation, which creates a 360° view for each unit. The facade design collects rainwater and air moisture at night, saving it in an underground tank which is then pumped into the building throughout the building’s facade and loors to cool down the whole building. The wind turbines installed between the two towers creates electricity and collects solar energy, making the entire building 100% net zero. The top peak of the largest surfaces are made of photo-voltaic glass at an angle which captures solar energy in the daytime, and provides a glow at night time.

// [GROW] _TEL AVIV BUILDING AS A MACHINE FOR GENERATING ENERGY Tel Aviv, Israel growth ・ skyscraper ・ mixed-use ・ convention center ・ net-zero ・ hotel ・ residential ・ technology center ・ urban canopy ・ icon ・ building the future

The design aims to take the opportunity to combine all the aspects needed to sustain the emerging growth in a vertical mixed-use project which includes a hotel, residential, retail space, community parks, an outdoor market and a convention center. The goals and big idea is to connect street and the beach, for public access, by creating a transparent opening in the structure. The concept of the canopy distributes the programs massing idea through to the park. Creating the void in the mass creates a space with natural daylight, air circulation. The material of the building is a lightweight, recycled. The most important goal is to create a space for human comfort.

// [CLIMAT]ARIUM A NEW TYPOLOGY DEDICATED TO REVERSING CLIMATE CHANGE AND REPAIRING THE COGNITIVE DISSONANCE OF THE ANTHROPOCENE Oxnard, California

This analyzes of the causes and treatment of public attitudes and the cognitive dissonance of climate change that results from human activity. Qualitative analysis from case studies and quantitative analysis gathered from geographic data and imagery has resulted in a synthesis of society’s footprint at a macro scale and the impacts that reflect civilization’s changing mindsets. The project design explores aesthetic forms of environmental engagement to visualize how technological systems change the Earth, and to aid in a collective big picture driven to make sense of the complexity that surrounds the relationship between people and nature. The research suggests that although humankind are the players in it’s rapid speed, when the magnitude of climate change is fully understood, humans have the capacity to accept responsibility and combat environmental ailment through design.

WELCOME TO THE ANTHROPOCENE

dairy / eggs

Humankind are the actors in an era of accelerated planetary crisis—which has recently earned itself a new geological epoch called the Anthropocene, based on the overwhelming evidence that human activity has marked itself as a major force of nature. Earth’s complex processes are severely altered by big industries which have played a serious role in the way humans have always organized their activities, which has inevitably shaped the built-environment. We perpetuate the impacts of industry with our ever-increasing demand for food, energy, and materials, our rampant consumerism, and our cognitive dissonance and (or) ethical disengagement with the destructive consequences of our negligence. Only 30% of Americans understand and believe that climate change is real and caused by human activity; however, 97% of scientists consider climate change to be the fundamental design problem of our time. Additionally, in the same way that humans have impacted natural processes, climate-related phenomena have ricocheted in the form of flooding, heat waves, drought, storm patterns, precipitation and sea-level rise which increases vulnerability and reduces the resiliency of our built environment. Anthropogenic climate change has direct implications for the performance and longevity of construction, maintenance, and the operation of spread of European buildings and infrastructure. farming conquest of

PROBLEM STATEMENT Climate change is a term that it struggles to hold its meaning in collective public opinion which misconceives that sustainability means sacrifice. Meanwhile, business, industry, and policy— although important for the development of a society, continue to treat the Earth as an infinite, quantifiable and exchangeable bundle of resources for trade in commodity markets. Exacerbated by overpopulation and general lack of interest, the problem remains concealed, neglected and unchallenged by our leaders, and even by environmental organizations.

CRITICAL POSITION Anthropogenic climate change demands urgent social and structural transformations, and architects today have a responsibility as builders of the future to not only be the designers of buildings, but of systems, habitats and ecosystems that channel the flow of people and resources through cities. Architects have the opportunity to address and solve problems that involve the mitigation between the built and the un-built environment. The Earth as a whole needs to be engaged as a grand question of design to aid in a collective big picture driven to tell a story and make sense of the complexity that surrounds the relationship between people and nature.


38

// Melanie Pauline Hahn_DESIGN PORTFOLIO Selected Academic & Professional Works //

THESIS STATEMENT This thesis stems from the conviction that anthropogenic climate change is the fundamental design problem of our time—and aims to confront the violent geological transformations made by ecologically destructive industries, which depend on the evisceration of Earth and leave behind irreversible scars. The research questions the role that the design sciences can play in the big picture of facing this planetary crisis and focuses on the overlapping relationships between the scientific and design fields in an aim to combat the cognitive dissonance of anthropogenic climate change and to come up with plausible solutions applicable at the urban scale.

CONCEPTUAL EVOLUTION OF FORM The concept was guided by unique aspects of the site, as well as the assessment of various liquid behavioral experiments. In addition, it was determined early on that the formation and structure of the proposed building will need to be elevated in order to reduce its footprint on the soil for conservation purposes, as well as to adapt to the rising sea level which will greatly effect the site. By addressing the main goal of designing for the earth as a whole, and applying techniques extracted from the conceptual process experiments, the form making decisions began. Each sketch marks a version that was tested and applied on the site conditions.
