GOOD FOOD CENTER THE GOOD FOOD CENTER IS A CONJUNCTION OF MULTIPLE AND VARIED PROGRAMS CENTERED AROUND A COMMON SET OF INTERESTS OF FOOD AWARENESS AND EDUCATION, CHALLENGING THE NORMS OF MASS FOOD PRODUCTION, ADVANCING FOOD RESEARCH, SLOW FOOD, PROMOTING AND SUPPORTING URBAN FARMING AND FOOD PRODUCTION. CELEBRATING A GOOD, HEALTHY, LOCAL FOOD, THE PROGRAM IS PROPOSED AT SOMA AREA IN SAN FRANCISCO, THE INTERSECTION OF 9TH AND HOWARD STREET, WHERE RICH HISTORY OF THE CITY AND CULTURE OF PROXIMATE MARKET STREET ARE EMBEDDED. IDEALLY THE GOOD FOOD CENTER WILL BRINGS DIVERSE PROGRAMS THAT THE BAY AREA HAS, CONTINUALLY EVOLVING FOOD CULTURE AND INTRASTRUCTURE THAT AIDS COMMUNAL EFFORTS IN HEALTHIER FOOD. THE STRUCTURE IS COMPRISED OF A MULTI-USE SPACE FOR FARMERS MARKETS, FOOD FAIR, AND OTHER EVENTS, COMMUNAL KITCHENS AND FACILITIES FOR FOOD TRUCKS, FOOD RESEARCH INSTITUTIONS, EDUCATIONAL CLASSROOMS, GALLERY, AUDITORIUM, AND ROOF-TOP GARDEN. ACCOMODATING NOT ONLY GENRAL PUBLIC BUT ALSO LOCAL FOOD EXPERTS AND PRODUCERS, THE GOOD FOOD CENTER SEEKS TO PROVIDE LOCAL FOOD MOVEMENT AND LINKAGE BETWEEN FOOD PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION. THE BUILDING ALSO PROVIDES OPEN SPACE WITHIN SOMA COMMUNITY WITH MAXIMIZED SUNLIGHT - SOUTH FACADE WITH DOUBLE GLAZED SKIN - AND NATURAL VENTILATION IN WHICH DIFFERENT PROGRAMS INTERACT WITH ONE ANOTHER ATTRACTING A WIDE RANGE OF USERS.

DOUBLE NEGATIVE THE PHOTOMONTAGE OF PHYSICAL MOVEMENT ALONG THE BRIDGES OVER STRAWBERRY CREEK IN BERKELEY HAS PRODUCED A FORMAL AND CONCENTUAL LANGUAGE OF THE DOUBLE NEGATIVE PROJECT. WITH A GIVEN 8” X 16” X 4” FULLY ENCLOSED VOLUME, SPATIAL LANGUAGE DIRECTED FROM THE PHOTOMONTAGE IS IMPLIED TO CREATE STRATEGIC VOIDS INTO THE SOLID VOLUME. THE VOIDS ARE MADE AS SUBTRACTIONS FROM THE SOLID AND TRANSFORMD BY EACH OTHER, CREATING SPATIAL EFFECT AT THEIR INTERSECTIONS. BRINGING SYNTHETIC PROCESS OF VOIDS AND SOLID RELATIONAHIP FROM THE PHOTOMONTAGE TO THE GIVEN DIMENSION, COMPOSITIONAL TENSION BETWEEN THE SOLID VOLUME AND THE VOLUME OF THE VOIDS WAS INVASTIGATED. FROM THE PHOTOMONTAGE OF BRIDGES, SEVEN DIFFERENT SHAPES OF VOIDS INTERACT TO FORM NEW BENT SURFACES AND VOIDS INSIDE. SUBTRACTING ONE ANOTHER, VOIDS CREATE CREASES THAT REFRACT LIGHTS AND CASE SHADOWS IN INTERIOR. AS BRIDGES ALLOW CROSSING TO THE OTHER END, VOIDS MEET WITHIN THE DIMENSION ALLOWING LIGHTS TO CROSS ALONG THE NEWLY CREATED SPACE.

WATERCUBE ANALYSIS

SECTIONAL DETAIL


THE PRECEDENT OF WATERCUBE, BEIJING OLYMPIC AQUATICS CENTER IS FOCUSED ON A FORMAL AND GEOMETRIC LANGUAGE OF STURCTURE - WEAIRE-PHELAN STURCTURE DEVISED FROM THE NATURAL PATTERN OF BUBBLES. LOOKING AT THE PROTOTYPE OF ITS ENVELOP, OPERABLE DOUBLE SKIN WITH SUSTAINABLE PERFORMANCE, GEOMETRIC SHAPES AND HOW THEY HAVE FOLDED TO FORM A THREE DIMENSIONAL VOLUME IS STUDIED. THEN, STRUCTURES THAT SUPPORT VOID BUBBLES OF THE WATERCUBE IS INVESTIGATED. DISECTING EACH BUBBLE PROTOTYPE THAT COMPRISES THE WHOLE STRUCTURAL AND SUSTAINABLE ENVELOP, CONCEPTUAL ELEMENTS OF WATERCUBE ARE APPLIED TO A HYPOTHETICAL BUILDING. THE CONCEPTUAL CUT AT THE END OF THE PROJECT INTRODUCES A SPATIAL, STRUCTURAL, AND PERFORMATIVE PREMISE OF WATERCUBE AND URBAN CONTEXT. ANALYTICAL DIAGRAMS OF WATERCUBE SYNTHESIZE WITH THE URBAN CONTEXT AND FAMILIAR LOCALE OF BUILDING TO DESCRIBE ITS DESIGN CONCEPT.

POTRERO HILL LIBRARY

PROG

INVESTIGATING THE THE NATURE OF CONTEMPORARY LIBRARY, THE NEW DESIGN FOR THE EXISTING POTRERO HILL BRANCH LIBRARY IN SAN FRANCCISCO IS PROPSED IN THIS PROJECT. THE LIBRARY NOT ONLY FUNCTIONS AS A PLACE FOR REFERENCE AND CONCENTRATED STUDY BUT ALSO AS AN INTENSIFIED PLACE FOR PUBLIC INTERACTION AND SOCIAL ENCOUNTER. IN A SUCH CONSTRAINED SITE IN URBAN FABIRC, THE LIBRARY ALSO PROVIDES ADDITIONAL GATHERING SPACES, COMPUTER TERMINAL ACCESS POINTS, COMMUNITY MEETING ROOMS, CHILDREN’S NOOKS AND QUIET PLAY AREAS, VIDEO AND DVD BORROWING, AUDITORIUMS, AND READING AREAS. THE STRUCTURE INCORPORATES EVOLVING NATURE OF INFORMATION AND PROLIFERATING USE OF DIGITAL MEDIA WITH COLLECTION OF DIGITAL MEDIA AND FACILITIES, ACCOMODATING AND ATTRACTING MORE PUBLIC TO CONSUME INFORMATION AS A TRANSFORMED METHOD FROM THE PREVIOUS LIBRARY. THE SITE ANALYSIS THAT EXAMINE THE USES OF LANDS - PRIVATE VS. PUBLIC - AND THE RELATIONSHIP OF PLANER PROJECTION OF LAND USES AND ELEVATION OF HILL AND INFRASTRUCTURES PROVIDES A FORMAL LANGUAGE OF THE DESIGN. THE GEOMETRIES FOUND WITHIN PROJECTED LINEAR RELATIONSHIP IN DIFFERENT VIEWS OF THE SITE - PLAN AND ELEVATION - ARE BASE OF THE FOLDING METHOD THAT FINALIZE THE ENVELOPE AND INTERIOR SPATIAL QUALITY OF THE LIBRARY.

THE SAME FORMAL LANGUAGE DEVISED FROM THE SITE ANALYSIS HAS BEEN APPLIED TO THE EXTENTION AT THE BACK OF THE LIBRARY. THE STRUCTURE IS PROPOSED FOR A PUBLIC GATHERING OUTDOOR SPACE TO CONNECT EXISTING PARKING LOT AND THE LIBRARY. STAIRS AND OVERHANING WALKABLE STRUCTURE ALLOWS CONTINUATION OF INFORMATION CONSUMPTION OF THE NEIGHBORS AND VISITORS TO THE LIBRARY.
