Living in the Wall Ho(s)tel + Flexible Market

Mike Louison | Dan Russoniello | Kyle Witmer 1


Mission Statement This project con nues an ac ve urban fabric past the barrier of I-95 in coopera on with new development plans for the Delaware River waterfront by layering commercial and event spaces to mix Philadelphians with a constant rota on of hotel users. The loca on provides ample walking access to public transit and many of the tourist ameni es of the waterfront and historic district. The hotel is designed to allow a con nuous visual connec on—whether the guest is in their room, the hallway, a communal space, or event space—to the Delaware River, Center City skyline, and the plaza space directly below.

Mobility From The Site

Walking distances from the site were ranked by 0 through 40 minute “walks�, and then combined with the various forms of transit. Thus, a bus directly passing the site starts at 0 min. and shows the distance on that bus that can be travelled in 40 min. This is then repeated with a bus in a 5 min. walking distance, and how far you can go a er the 5 min. walk on that bus, and from that bus to another bus, or subway or train. This then begins showing the distance one can travel from the site in 40min. from a combina on of all public transit sources, showing the mobility from the site into the surrounding city.

Passenger CongesƟon

Passenger congesƟon data was obtained by SEPTA and re-visualized. The data is organized by the number of people entering the staƟon, leaving the staƟon, and in which direcƟon (east bound, and west bound, for each half hour of the day, at each staƟon along the Market-Frankfort Line. This data was compiled in a three dimensional graph, where the radius of the form is equivalent to the number of passengers , the height is relaƟve to the Ɵme of day, and these forms created where overlaid on the subway route and city grid. From these shapes it is possible to determine when the peak usages of staƟon occur, and how they relate to the neighboring staƟons. The Eastbound entering and exiƟng were compared, then placed side by side to visualize the total number of people passing through the staƟon in that direcƟon.

ZONING

17


18


Zoning Type: Commercial 5

Zoning Uses Commercial 5, or C-5 Zoning is a new zoning in 2011 for the promo on of high density mixed use development. The new zoning covers a large area of Center City Philadelphia, and adds special restric ons on buildings in certain areas (Market and Chestnut Streets in par cular) in order to maintain the walkability and dense storefront nature that is characteris c of the city. The classifica on also calls for public ameni es such as sea ng, public art, landscaping, and retail space for the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s occupants and general public. The zoning also calls for the development of parking facili es to intercept vehicular commuter traďŹ&#x192;c before it enters Center City. Uses permi ed are those which minimize nega ve impact on the enjoyment of public sidewalk and public space by large numbers of people. They should enliven and enhance the public use, experience and enjoyment of these spaces. Commercial, residen al, hotel and entertainment uses are permi ed; mul ple buildings are permi ed on a single lot. Ground level retail and personal service are encouraged by not including their gross floor area as part of the permi ed gross floor area of the development. Prohibited or highly discouraged uses include surface parking lots, auto repairs, auto sales lots, drive-in restaurants, public parking lots, open trash handling areas, and other programs that can be disrup ve to the enjoyment of Center City.

Height Restric ons Because C-5 zoning encourages dense development there are no specific height limits set. Rather, the height limit is determined as a factor of area limits and setback requirements. Given a limited maximum gross square footage, the more slender a building, the taller it can be, and visa versa.

Providing public space equal to 30% of the area of the lot. Providing public sea ng and landscaping within the public space. Providing public art or endowing performances within the public space at a value derived from the construc on cost of the development.

Mission Statement

Our goal is to work in conjunc on with the Delaware River Waterfront Master Plan to create pedestrian friendly spaces with program that brings energy to the area. Using the neighboring transit paths we shall establish a transporta on outlet as a catalyst for ac va ng the site along with a flexible market and a ho(s)tel to promote social interconnec vity between users.

29


Introduc on

PATCO, and the proposed water taxi and Light Rail line along Columbus Blvd. will turn this loca on into a transit node for commuters, tourists, and locals.

The site allocated for program is located at 100 N Columbus Boulevard on the corner of Race Street and Columbus Boulevard. The zoned lot measures approximately 38,000 square feet and the program commingles a Hotel, Hostel, Transit hub, and Flexible Market space.

The site’s proximity to Philadelphia’s Historic tourism center makes the loca on excellent for a hotel. The site also offers views both of the Delaware River where the Ben Franklin Bridge crosses, and of the Center City Skyline. Located at a transit stop, and along I-95 which provides to the Philadelphia Airport, the hotel is convenient for tourists.

Across from the newly opened Race St. Pier, and along the Race St. Connector project, the site is undergoing exci ng change as the Delaware Waterfront Development Corpora on implements its master plan along Philadelphia’s riverfront. An exis ng building on the site, an unused Pump House is slated for conversion to a 250 seat theatre and arts venue.

Welding the two programs together is a public space consis ng of a flexible market place. This market combines regular vendors and temporary changing public events and exhibi ons, bringing ac vity to the site as well as serving those who are travelling through. Overall the program hopes to provide services collateral to the exis ng acvi es in the area by adding mul -use space that draws people in and through.

In support of the new development and the exis ng ac vity in old city the program includes an addi onal stop on the Market-Frankford line between the 2nd and Market, and Spring Garden Sta ons. This stop will be the core element of a new transit hub be er linking Camden, New Jersey, Old City, and the Delaware waterfront with the greater context of Philadelphia. New stops for, 30

Performance Criteria

Hotel: The Hotel challenges the norms of lodging. It brings the user into the life and movement of the city, bringing ac vity and events into the site, and blurring the lines between the private space of the hotel room, and the public space of the city. The hotel creates a unique experience for the user. -Experience of user path -Connec on to series of events -The user perspec ve Lobby: Secure Gateway/Portal with informa on. Lounge por on is perhaps more public. (Semideconstructed) Units: Diversity, varying in scales economy and types. Must either have a direct visual connec on to our program or access to communal space with direct visual connec on. Communal Spaces: Varying in Form and Func on Act as Event Rooms: For reserva on by the hour for a variety of events, otherwise used as a communal space for hotel users. Both interior and exterior space. Restaurant: The restaurant exists within the Hotel but is a public element. It draws the public realm ver cally.

45


Market: -Consis ng of a series of pathways derived from movement across the site and access to transit elements. -Within these intertwining pathways are moments, “follies”, which provide a variety of services (Food, Coffee, groceries, newspapers, rest, leisure, entertainment, ect.). -This is a fluid realm of public space. - Consistent Market: - Constant elements within a fluid ac vity zone. - Permanent moments that provide specific func ons. (convenience store, media shop, café, newsstand, restaurant, ice cream parlor, flower shop, ect.) Flexible Market: -Flexible market program changes on daily, weekly, monthly levels, following trends of ac vity within the city. Intermediary space within the fluid pathways and the moments of the consistent market become filled with program in infinity reconfigurable forms. Art exhibits, farmers market, interna onal cooking expo, restaurant week, Philly beer week, concert, theater, installa ons, flea markets, arts fair, cra show, ect.

Stavanger Concert Hall BIG

Landscape Forma on Zaha Hadid

Here the landscape is treated as a system of steps that bring the pedestrian up into the space of the project without defining it through isola ng walls. The performance space exists as an object protruding from the smooth omni-pedestrian landscape around it. Simultaneously the landscape rises up to form the performance hall itself. The concourse below the landscape finds itself roofed by a dynamic series of planes with clerestories allowing light to enter in a way that blurs the boundary between inside and out.

Built for a garden fes val, this project dissolves into the surrounding landscape. The program includes an exhibi on hall, cafe, and environmental center; these elements live in a structure organized by a series of woven and tangled paths that allow pedestrians to cross over the top of the building itself, without breaking from the landscape.

Slussen BIG

1111 Lincoln Road Herzog & DeMeuron

Slussen is a central traďŹ&#x192;c node in Stockholm, connec ng roads, buses, railway, ferry, and pedestrian paths. The current public space is surrounded by traďŹ&#x192;c, and BIG proposes reversing this condi on. Here they wrap the connec ve program in public pedstrian space, reconnec ng people to the waterfront while allowing the infrastructural program to exist uninterrupted below.

A car park that is part of a larger development, 1111 Lincoln Road diverges from the typical model by expressing itself fully. Mulple heights between the levels and an elegant expression of a dynamic structure allow for the car park to be an a rac ve place. The user experience is enhanced throughout with the inclusion of a sculptural stair at the center which s ll aďŹ&#x20AC;ords panoramic views.

Mari me Youth House BIG

Insurance Company Kada Wi ield

The projects balance the needs of two clients sharing one site. A youth house sought space for kids to play while a sailing club needed space to moor boats. BIG stretched the play space inbetween as well as up and over the interior spaces, peeling up a field to fit addi onal program underneath. This simultaneously mul plies the area available for program and makes the play space more dynamic.

This design uses the building to embrace a sunken plaza. It plays with eleva on by raising parts of the building on pilo , stepping the site down and crossing over void spaces. The interior also incorporates visibility between dis nct levels.

NUWOG Headquarters Fink + Jocher

Gammeltorv og Nytorv

This memorable facade provides uniform window openings for the rooms beyond. Aesthe cally it expresses the rooms as pushing through the building eleva on, and provides balconies as recesses and protrusions within the same language.

Gammeltorv and nytorv are two conjoined public squares that serve a variety of consistent and temporary purposes. The square is a ac ve public pedestrian space, which is surrounded by a variety of retail, cafes, and restaurants. There is a permenant kiosk in the center that serves warm and cold beverages. There are weekly stands which set up selling a variety of items, a daily produce stand, and occasional â&#x20AC;&#x153;eventsâ&#x20AC;? including a Christmas market, world food fes val, and a variety of temporary art installa ons.

Linked Hybrid

Copenhagen Central Sta on

Steven Holl

Copenhagen The landscape around Linked Hybrid creates a mul layered pedestrian space of a variety of types. They range from build form with a occupied roof-scape to man made hills with sliced passages through. Interes ng mul leveled spaces are created by these elements. Placed in this landscape are objects that serve as sculptural landmarks as well as various program spaces, like elevated teahouses. This landscape then interacts with large build forms, with a public program extending upward into the towers.

In the main entrance hall of Copenhagen Central Sta on there is a large open space, in which small blocks of various retail, and restaurant program have been inserted. The blocks act as free standing buildings, all placed within a larger mass. Below the main hall are the train pla orms, accessed through a variety of entry points spaced amongst the blocks.

Loisium Hotel Steven Holl

/ Orestad College

This hotel featured an undulating facade which intrigued us. The possibility of shi ing masses within the facade, the use of screening systems, the building wrapping a central courtyard space, and the rela on of public at grade and private above all provided inspira on. These rela ons addressed the various programma c needs of the hotel and site condi ons. By using similar processes applied to our site condi ons and program , then these features can influence our design.

While the Program of this building is not related to our project, I picture these round objects being our â&#x20AC;&#x153;folliesâ&#x20AC;? with consistent market program inside them and recrea on program on top. They can exist as exterior objects and con nue into inclosed interior space, possibly becoming a bar or restaurant in the hotel lobby, a newsstand in the transit hub, a cafe, a farmers stand, or whatever. Also, aesthe cally I like the circular skylights above them.

Ewha Womens University

KYOTO STATION

Dominique Perrault

Hiroshi Hara

An Urban Landscape provides public green space, and contains a large slice of lowered passage which connects pedestrians to buried program. The gorge becomes its own pedestrian streetscape, with program placed along the edges. The top then provides another realm of public space, and opportuni es for views down and outward. In the case of our project this could be retail and transit entries along the gorge, and public park above.

The Kyoto Sta on contains Japan’s second largest train sta on, as well as a shopping mall, department store, hotel, movie theater, and government facili es. An immense glass and steel structure runs the length of the public corridor, a gesture to the first sta on, but with folds and new structural materials. The folding structure builds rela onships of spaces. The adjacency that the hotel has to the main public space serves as a model for our proposal.

INTERNATIONAL TERMINAL FOR SAN FRANCISCO AIRPORT

YOKOHAMA INTERNATIONAL PORT TERMINAL Foreign Office Architects

Skidmore, Owings & Merril LLP

The brief for this project was to create a passenger cruise terminal that incorporates a civic facility for public usex. The result houses the terminal below and an expansive structure with con nuous public spaces along the waterfront. FOA created a “systema c transforma on of the lines of [a] circula on diagram.”

The airport, located in San Francisco, embodies the iden ty of the interna onal airport and the city. The wing-like structure that comprises the en rety of the roof is both elegant and strong. SOM considered the highest seismic safety requirements ever imposed on an American Airport. Its form comes directly from the diagram of its bending forces, based purely on fun onality.

This project lends itself to pedestrian movement and con nuity of the urban landscape, two key elements that our proposed market & transit hub shall embody.

This par cular structure will poten ally influence a canopy or roof for the Performance & market space.

THE RADIAN Erdy McHenry Architecture, LLC This dormitory residence is built to highly consider its urban context and social environment. The form exists to connect campus edges within the city context. It hovers above a retail plinth that gestures to the pedestrian. The grand stair carries one up to an outdoor area for alterna ve dining op ons and through the restaurant. It’s goal is to translate an “under-u lized urban context as event space.” It contains fixed module units in a flexible system “for understanding space” and fostering social rela onships and interac ons. 69

Cloud 9 These apartments are based oďŹ&#x20AC; a rectalinear structural grid that formats the en re building. To break up the mass, he has punctured it with voids for communal spaces and has dilineated it with a curtain wall, interup ng the banding of the balconies. With the use of this grid, he is able remove por ons but s ll maintain the structural integrity.

The structure of this informa on and communica on technologies warehouse is built so that the loads are traced down at the perimeter, allowing a free flow of space in the middle to insert program. Each facade is treated diďŹ&#x20AC;erently appropriate to its solar condi on.

Annenberg Public Policy Center

I-95 The organic fluid pathways of I-95 by our site, and other highway interchanges around the globe speak of fluid movement between points. Our project desires fluid paths of movement across the site, flowing in and out, between, and around program elements.

The Piazza at Schmidts

Circuit Board

Erdy McHenry The Piazza at schmidts uses blocks of mixed use residen al and commercial program to create an open public space. This space is accessible from a variety of entry points and surrounded by comercial spaces at grade. The space is just a public square regularly, but transforms into an event space, weekly farmers market, resturant week venue, or flea market from me to me. The space can be used for movie screenings and watching spor ng events. The residen al por ons overlook the public space.

The circuit board acts as a series of fluid pathways, along which elements are placed: transistors, resistors, ect. If these elements become market program, then the flow of people through defined pathways brings them in direct contact with the market elements they wish to experience as the circulate through and on the next element. program elements Circula on paths

THE STANDARD HOTEL Ennead (formerly known as Polshek) Using sculptural piers, the building is li ed 50 above the ground allowing the industrial landscape to pass beneath it. Located above the highline in Manhaten’s Hudson riverfront Meatpacking District, the Hinged masses are angled to further emphasize the building’s “dis nc on from the city grid.” The, concrete and glass represent the character of the city. Its form, posi on and orienta on , as well as the ac vity below can heavily influence our program adjacencies. 72

Sendai Mediatheque Toyo Ito The structure of this project is comprised of steel tubed la ce columns that hold the floor plates and connect all the floors. They act as the main structure and vectors for light to travel down through all floors. This is a useful strategy for bringing light down into spaces that would not be so conveniently accessible like a parking garage.

75


Cidori Blocks Kengo Kuma These blocks originated as a Japanese toy. They consist of three pieces that when put together lock to create a sturdy joint. Rather than a tectonic, we see this as analogous to the elements of our program. The hotel, market, and transit hub feed into another to make a stronger whole.

The first approache was to form a wall that borrows axes from the site and site context. Sunlight and view were considered while orien ng the form. The site landscape begins to unfold and split to reveal and create level changes for access and sepera on of spaces.

83


84


Another approach with the livable wall was not to seperate spaces, rather wrap the site to create a sense of place. A wall is formed against highway I-95 as a buďŹ&#x20AC;er for pedestrians. Voids are subtracted from the wall and highlighted as communal and â&#x20AC;&#x153;eventâ&#x20AC;? spaces.
