Diploma concept Somewhere inbetween tourist resort and cultural center


Parametric version


As for the adaptive nature of the buildings skin , you can see the pattern variations on it. These are in fact funtions whith diferent light requirements.

The first ideea for the diploma is a combination of 2 arhitecrtural programs: -a hotel -a cultural research facility One is a consumerist magnet and the other is a cultural/ artistic one. A union of the two can be a nucleus for an economic engine that the area needs.

the texture on the building is in fact another script which allows for controled lightning. The amount of light varies acording to the type of function enclosed. More , the reticuleted nature of the pattern also means that this can be a self-supported structure.

The same thing happens whith the floor pattern, but this time the variation is a function of: -vegetation - circulation - architectural function

Delaunay triangulation of function centers

The more detailed is the functional layout of the building the more structured the voronoi will become. At a certain level of detail it ca even become not only a partitioning algorythm but also a structural algorithm.

A research direction for the project was to generate a self-distributed functional layout which is controled by sites topology rules and relations between functions. This is basiclly a theme for several well- known computational algorithms : A) first the Dlaunay triangulation method B) then the Voronoi digram A)I generated a cloud of points where every point is a center of a function. The point defines a circle whith a radius depending on the size of the function. This circles are obliged to be tangent, depending on the functions that they represent. In this fasion I’ve obtained adinamic/ parametric layout which can be influenced by other factors in the propozals site. B) Now the shape of the propozal is defined by a voronoi function( point cloud). The size of rooms/spaces/functions is defined by the spacial proximity between ponts.

One direction of this diploma is “not to touch that which not antrophic”. In this case there are

some unstable slopes. This began the moment mines closed. What if they are consolidated ..... The ideea is to do this at a functional level. If the facility is a school then these can become the student hostels.

Art school Morfed space The art school Centered aroud the library it is an appendix of the cultural center. This school is an experiment because it combines the normal learning process whith research and happenings in the public part of the building. The two links between the bulding units are not ment as symbolic separators. They should act like mediation spaces between the two architectural programs. Here there should be functions like curators or thecher offices and exhibition halls

Between the school, the cultural center and the hostels the occupied land area must be fixed. That is one part of the conceptual constraints of the project. I only use the space available from the mining complex. This ideea of the morfed space in, my case, is a relfection of the site’s topology on the planing and lanscaping of the propozal. THE MORFED SPACE is the name i give to my site topology research done for this project.

The cite for the diploma is an old , comunist coal mine. It has 3 main features: A It is a score in the middle of nature made of political directives ( comunism did this just in order to give peasants sothing to work), not of need for resources. The mine had low quality coal. B Nature is in the process of retaking this land. C Some parts of the mining facilities can be reused. There is a certain infrastructure which can make as: - roads - platforms Regarding the landscape , the transition fom an industrial to a natural state is an oportunity for transforming this into a more suitable architectural program. After all the transformation has already began 50 years ago. The project does not attempt delete history allreay made, but rather is reorienting the people’s perception of local values thru this lens made possible by this communist ...... ambision/ small mine. During the Cold War era the local communities ware uprooted via industrialization/ mining in this case. BUT the folklore in the area has pre- Christian roots and an intimate relationship with the environment. This makes for a very intersting combination. Now the palce of the propozal is to try to help locals rediscover their lost ties. Today, this is not only a way to live, it can also be a way to exist in todays’s economic world. This is because when the mines closed, the region remaned whithout a means of an healthy economic life. Here the project finds its place as a nucleus, a starting point that generate this economic life.

Cultural center The cultural center is the public component of the propozal. From the functional point of view should have all the facilities for conferences, concerts, theater and mhost of all cultural research. This should work as public laboratory for studying local

Morfed space

As you can see all the creation process is based on a mixture of topologycal site analisys , antropological research on local folcklore and a search for an architectural program mixture able to link contemporary art environment to lacal culture


At this stage of the diploma project I was inspired by the writings of Richard Dawkins and Nikos A. Salingaros on cultural evolutionary models and architecture. If the city is a viral environment form a memtic point of view... If today , society is in crisis ...... If we are in a resouce crisis..... If architecture is in crisis......

the school has a concentric functional structure. the center of it is a green area symbolising the movement toward nature of school concept. around her, all te functions of the school are articulated by a system of public areas.

public area

library

in the project the library of the school has a symbolic role. It is a link to the past. More , It exposes students to old knowledge. Also is the main piece in the learnig area.

This aincent Knowledge conceptcan be a in the architectural society today after 100 years of numbness.

amphitheater Exhibition area

It not only for exibiting works. But also for interacting between public and students in the design process.

By conbining functions from the entire art domain ,in one place, the project tries to create a complete medium for applied arts students. heaving cinamatographical, musical and technological means at your disposal as a future desigener or architect alloows you to explore all facets of your design. And all this focused on environmental architecture and design. this is only a functional diagram NOT an architectural plan. it tries to bring forward functional relations betwen various parts of the building.

This somehow entropycal view of the projct reflects the contextualistic appraoch of local architecture school. At the same time the modernist doctrine of the school along with this contextualistic approach makes for a very vrilent climate for contemporary architecture. The idea is that iin this stage of the project I will insist more on the mining component of the site and the transition of it to a more enviromental and cultural friendly space.

Entropy The final version of the diploma is a much more focused view of the mine rehabilitation process. Actually what this proposal is does , is preserving and completing the mining complex. The hotel is downsized and the mine is converted into a open museum. The point is to actually see in a controled fashion, the decayng process of the mine.

READ THIS PLEASE In tthe end all the research for the diploma led to this. A small 60 rooms hotel. This was because of the contextualist view of the school. I would say it is not contextualism, but rather architectural shyness turned into architectural design strategy. You See Thats why this Portfolio is Not Complete. I nevere had the chance to finish something in 6 yaers of school because was not architectural shyness. That’s why I want a REBOOT somewhere outside Romania As far as I can from this place as possible As far as possible from this architectural environment. I do not want to the perfect st bacause I know rendering and modeling These are tools and I can do so much more with them. Thats I want to come to You Because You want to be at the fore front of today’s architectural movement. I want to be a part of this to.

Floor plan for the hotel In the end the project was more form then substance. more words then facts. And it was apreciated..... more , a lot more then the earlier versions which were a lot more promising


This is an AUDI fun project. It is inspired by the AUDI R8 model. The ideea behind this thing is simple. What is a super car?? ..... Well it’s a adrenaline generator and a kind of magnet.......... :)) If you study the design of the car you will find agsressive lines, evil faces E.T.V.C. It’s all about basic instincts. So my clock is just a reminder of what the car is about: -driving, driving hard. - of course there is there is always the magantic part of the car.... A! And because It is two clocks in one you can play timend chess.... :)

...

and

drive

This simple clock ideea is also a reflection of social and psychological perception of the “super car “ product. The car has a dual nature. It is a social statement but also a sexual statement. That’s whi there are two clocks: one counting the driving life of the owner and the other is counting his sex life. The clocks are separated because these two lifes are separated and the car is the link batween them. Even if the desigenr does not try to do this by his actions this is happening anyway if the end result of the design process is a super-car. Using these two ideeas the end result can be a great promotional material , and above all, this is the function of such an object.
