FERRY TERMINAL Arch I | spring 2017

program

This course expects students to further their abilities in design thinking by building a studio practice. This was a full semester long project that required students to design a dock terminal located in the empty site between the greenway & harbor walk.

gather

SITE ANALYSIS: The location of the site is at Boston’s 4 Channel point near Northern Avenue Bridge. These site analysis show disconnection between the greenway and the water / harborwalk. My main focus was to create a central intersection within the site by connecting both elements together.

roof garden

FOCUS: I wanted a continuous connection between the greenway and the harborwalk with high that pin points to one intersection, bottom left corner. High consideration of level changes with both the building and landscape form. circulation

MAIN CIRCULATION

DOCK DESIGN: Extruded lines that were parallel to my existing built form that created this grid system. Thus led me to making a unique dock design.

programs used: indesign & REVIT scale: 1’16th = 1’-o FINAL ITERATION: The last modifications I applied to this iteration was creating program within the actual interior spaces. I manipulated the dock terminal with consideration of the shape of my building. Condensed my spaces lining up to the edge of the bridge to avoid large amounts of unused area. FINAL CONCEPT STATEMENT: Create a community experience that is in a form of both a building and landscape. Providing both public and private gathering spaces inside and out. High consideration of materiality that wraps the built form to enhance the viewers experience.

BREWERY PRODUCTION Arch II | Fall 2017 This project was to design an apple cider brewery located in Brigham circle of Mission Hill. In order to understand the site at a larger scale, I created a water color collage (cover) to express how the chaotic intersection of zoning is surprisingly organized in a form of a grid. Once we got the final program of it being a brewery, we took a field trip to Down East Cider to understand the spaces, certain dimensions & circulation. The main concept of my design proposal centered around the tectonic of interlocking. I had the precedent of Chapel del Retiro by Unduraga based in Chile, where their main material use was concrete & wood, with the design intention of being underground at certain instances. Over the design process of creating iterations, I kept the same materiality of concrete and wood. My very first iteration (top left model) was my threshold model where I made interlocking very evident. I made a rhythm of concrete walls the main structure, then added a wooden substructure. In order to create these different instances of spaces, I based everything on a grid system. I wanted the experience to have a unique aspect of observing from both perspectives. I decided on having the production area in the lower level while the consumption area stay in the upper level.

02 | CIDER BREWERY | brigham circle final drawings & model programs used: indesign & photoshop scale: 1/8th = 1’-o The site tour would go in the order of the legend key next page, with room of variation. I stayed consistent with the materiality of concrete & wood by creating the same rhythm of concrete walls. I was very intrigued at the assembly line of kegging and bottling packaging so I made that the key element of arriving to my building. I incorporated multiple public gatherings such as an outside courtyard and central courtyard. As well as excavating much of the land to create different levels of experience.

Partnering with WalkBoston, we were assigned a site to improve and make age-friendly. We performed thorough site analysis, interviewed stake holders, surveyed the public, researched precedents, site experimented and designed prototypes. As an age friendly intervention in public space, we designed a multifunctional planter that incorporates the residents’ love for the arts, music, and gardening. We hope to bring the assets of the community to the residents. Our design serves as a planter that the residents can interact with, it showcases the arts and cultures of the residents, and it serves as seating to the public.

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: being group leader of a team of 7 has its pros & cons in order to coordinate team efforts & works to resolve conflicts within the team. Over the course of this project there has been so much collaboration, cooperation & communication in real time perspective. my leadership skills have evolved throughout the process. timeline: Week 1 - Project introduction Week 2 - WalkBoston Presentation Week 3 - Site visit, Brainstorm, Surveys Week 4 - Working Session, Prototyping Week 5 - Final Protoype, Exhibition & Forum It was rewarding to see the final outcome my group has been working on for weeks. It was awarded “MOST WANTED TO BE MADE PERMANENT� by the whole class. WalkBoston Visitors would like to feature our project in the upcoming WalkBoston presentation. With that, we have successfully ended in a strong note with this community project.

PHASE ONE | L.O.U.D “THE EXPRESSION OF IDEAS” scale: 1” = 30’ - 0” | programs used: indesign, photoshop, cad during phase one, our group of 6 created several schemes proposing a new indoor arena, barn and paddocks to help invest in the therapeutic process. us gateway students were not familiar to barn programming, therefore it took a while for us to understand both spatial and functionality aspects. as a group we wanted to express all of our ideas coming from a design team’s perspective. phase one was during our first client meeting.

PHASE TWO | T.O.L.D “THE REALISM IN IDEAS” scale: 1” = 30’ - 0” | programs used: indesign, photoshop, cad, revit during phase two the ideas developed in regards to the feedback received from our clients. they wanted additional programs such as: outdoor arena, & outdoor garden with seating. I was in charge of transferring all the schemes to cad & to 3d modeling in revit. Throughout the semester, our group understood more and more about barn programming and took into consideration about spatial and functionality aspects such as weather, lvl grade changes.

05 | SUSHI DESIGN | personal final drawings & perspective programs used: indesign & photoshop scale: 1/16th = 1’-o this past summer of 2017 I had an opportunity to redesign a sushi bar at a restaurant called ichiban hibachi, located in allentown, pennsylvania. this was a 2 man team where we had to redesign a more modern yet tradtional theme of a sushi bar. our main concept was bamboo, contrasting with dark wood, and huge amount of light from the lantern fixtures. current conditions - small & tight - cramp storage - too traditional client program - slight modernity - lighting fixtures - provide more seating - expand (demolish wall)
