Final Thesis Project Philip Ra, Mini Chu Pixel School House San Francisco, CA 2019 Fall - 2020 Spring

Statement_ This is a new student housing typology where the programs of school and classroom are combined with the living spaces that are also affordable for the students. This design is to provide students’ needs through the creation of spaces and environment that foster connectivity and social interactions to encourage students to connect with the larger student population within and outside of the university.

PIXEL SCHOOL HOUSE

Rethinking student housing typology fosters connectivity and social interaction amongst students within and outside of the community

As an architecture major student who studied in the city of San Francisco, I’ve studied in AAU for five years, because of the tension from the school, I spend most of my time in school at the same time paying thousands of dollars for my housing but not present. And the experience of having four people sharing a two-bedroom apartment doesn’t give me any good experience. And I believe most of the students who study in the urban city have the same struggle.

Traditionally, campus housing has always been 5 minutes or less within campus. But cities have grown, the campus housing has been blurred, especially in the urban city. Therefore, the cost of housing is overlooked and students are less likely to get housing because they have to compete with professions. And from the University perspective, they don’t have enough housing to provide for the students and because of the student population growth, the number of usable classroom spaces on campus has largely remained fixed.

01/ On-Campus Housing vs. Off-Campus Housing Timeline

1920-1930s

1967

The first student housing founded in Harvard University. Hastings Hall was the name of the student housing and it is also the first single, multipurpose building that the classrooms are attaching right next to the sleeping rooms.

Dormitories had become crucibles in which deans and other university administrators, acting in loco parentis, transfigured children into adults. And stated that “All students would, ideally, live on campus to get the full benefit of the collegiate experience”. After that, students started reject in loco parentis that they did not need caretaking. They were adults who wanted to be treated as such.

Apartments made legal and ideas for a “resident University were shattered”, they decided to stuck down off-campus apartment housing. After that, students start practice of petition for off-campus housing autonomy exercise.

1880s

1966

Universities started to admitted African American students, and they started living with the native white students. But after that, a long controversy erupted when a white matron, at the behest of white students, pushed their black classmates to a separate table at Ladies Hall, a women’s dorm. At that time, female students were expected to become homemakers, wives, and mothers, so their dormitories reflected the ideology of domesticity: they were not boarding houses but “cottages” to fit them for the roles they were expected to fulfill.

(01)

Because the student population growth and different type of student demographics, the first off-campus housing built in 1966 that allows students who are above 21 years old has the chance to live off-campus housing. Typically it separated by male hall and female hall and each room in the quadrangle was designed for two occupants in a 70-square-foot area with six square feet of closet space. None of the rooms had individual sinks or showers.

Interlocking Donuts // Housing and Comprehensive Design

Specs_ Course Instructor Project Location Semester

Housing and Comprehensive Design Goetz Frank, Bradley Sugarman Interlocking Donuts Point Richmond, CA 2019 Spring

Statement_ This is a multi-purpose residential project located in Point Richmond which is also right next to the new ferry terminal and the Craneway Pavilion. The goal of this project is to address the social and economical problem in the city of Richmond and the gentrification issue in the bay area. The “interlocking” concept helps reach the goal of creating a lively pedestrian-friendly neighborhood through mixed-use program. The building can be simply described as two “interlocking donuts”. By having these two interlocking donuts, we can have shared community between private and public.

The Culture Hall // Tectonics and Structure

Specs_ Tectonics and Structure Karen Seong, Eric Reeder The Culture Hall San Francisco, CA 2018 Fall

Course Instructor Project Location Semester

Statement_ As a Chinese person married to a Korean,I have found that integrating two cultures can be challenging but it also has changed and strengthened my identity. Bringing two families together through marriage requires an open mind and acceptance especially in an international marriage. The lack of shared cultural history or a shared understanding of protocol in interactions (what is considered good manners / polite) makes the relationship-building more difficult. The program activities in this building help families open up to each other and share experiences together to find common ground across cultures.This building is a venue for cross-cultural events that mark rites of passage for couples and families. Specifically, the venue supports those who are integrating different cultures into their traditions.

The building has two major structures which are the bundled columns and the interlocking wood ceiling. Columns are comprised of 2x6 wood stud @ 16 inch on center and wood sheathing is used as the main structure to define layered boundaries of spatial progression. Also the vertical fins create the sightlines of a person in motion that provide some level of privacy while keeping the transparency.

These two systems of columns and ceiling create a visual connection be-

tween interior and exterior spaces and also draws the public into the building.

Bundled columns are used as the main structure to define layered boundaries of spatial progression. The interlocking structural ceiling system allows for long spans for event halls. This same system continues on the mezzanine levels with more condensed openings for people to observe the ceremonies below.

The

Coyote Hills Visiter Center // Site Conditions and Building Performance

Specs_ Site Conditions, Building Performance Lise Barriere, Joseph King Coyote Hills Visitor Center Coyote Hills Regional Park, CA 2018 Spring

Course Instructor Project Location Semester

Statement_ Nestled in a clearing at the base of a gently rolling hill, the Coyote Hills Visitor Center takes cues from the topography as it follows the site contours to form a long sinuous profile with thin wood columns lightly touching the earth. Though unified under a continuous roof plan, the building itself is divided into four discreet volumns permeated by open terraces and pathways to allow visitors choices for exploration and discovery of the park. This will also allow gentle breezes to passively cool the building, and abundant opportunities for natural daylighting. The design seeks to celebrate the rich natural abundances of the site by minimizing its disturbance with a light footprint and scale.

In this course, students study design principles, process and thinking in the design of an assembly building. As part of the study, students will focus on architectural programming, diagramming and a critical analysis of site and context. Students will explore the role of society, community, and culture in the development of a critical viewpoint. Introduction of structural systems and architectural access will be integrated in the design process.

The High Line Theater // Assembly Building and Context

Course Instructor Project Location Semester

Statement_ This project is an immersive design theater located in Manhatten cross 10th Avenue and 26th Street and it came with the space under the High Line. By analyzing the geometric abstract art Proun 19, I found the subtlety differntiate created by the different materials of the painting which also created the difference between solid and void. After that, I turned it into the architectural concept, and create this immersive theater that could be integrated with the High Line.

01/ REFERENCE PAINTING Proun 19D is an oil painting which also including sandpaper, basswood and other different material pieces as part of the painting. The different volumes of the figure seem to superimpose and float in the air one on top of the other which is not common with this type of painting. And also it can read as a phenomenal transparency work. From the painting we can see, each figure, in relation to another, exists in a kind of floating tension that “forces” one’s eyes to focus on them in various ways. Possibilities are rather endless.

02/ DIAGRAM 01 /

From the painting I found out that there is an arch on the upper left corner, if we draw the whole circle out of the arch, the yellow circle from the right side of the painting is actually in the center of the big circle.So I decided to put the left part of the painting under the right part of the painting when I was making the model.

The site is located in Manhattan borded the 10th and West 26th Street and it includes the space under the High Line. The analytical site model was built to be an interpretation of that neighborhood, and also includes the logic and concept from my painting and model before. The new understanding of the site based on the following:

01/ SITE ANALYSIS MODEL LOCATED ON THE MAP 02/ SITE ANALYSIS MODEL

1. When the High Line touched the new system. it changed direction and became a new High Line. 2. Sold as Void, Void as Solid. 3. Weak pieces cut out the strong pieces creating the slots at the connection points to create the voide spaces. 4. The height of each piece is based on the exisiting building height.
