KIMBELL STUDENT HOUSING


The site for the project is the Kimbell Art Museum by Louis Khan, which was to be reinterpreted for new program, use, and form. The re-programming and re-purposing of the Kimbell Art Museum as student housing was done through an “exquisite corpse� design process within the studio with a final refinement of ideas and programming done afterwards. The housing component is placed with a re-stacked barrel vault roof structure and other recreational uses placed below within the previous gallery space. Every programmatic placement was rationalized by the spatial conditions, such as lighting or cellularity, generated by a mediating roof structure.

THRESHOLD HOUSE


Conceived as a “house of thresholds”, space and environmental conditions are not defined and contained by walls but rather through found “thresholds”, such as windows, doors, valves, etc. The exterior of the house remains relatively in tact other than the chasm introduced within the front facade, which becomes the primary threshold of the house by bringing people, air, and water not through singular openings, but one large opening. Adhoc clustering of such objects was rationalized based on a required environmental condition GRADUATE STUDIO Professor: Dennis Maher

SPATIAL EQUALITY


SCALE 1/16”: 1’

FLOOR ONE

The design for an aviary/aquarium is conceived as a “shared” environment between humans, birds, and fish. As a building that does not promote spectacle, each species is granted equal opportunity for shelter, privacy, and necessary material conditions (bird-air volume, fish-water, human-ground). The building was generated from the manipulation of a tessellated pattern, which was analyzed for its potential deformations and environmental thresholds. Through an analysis of interconnectivities between layers and components volumes of water, air and continuous planes where formed to accommodate the different occupancies.

When prompted with the task of providing mixed-use density housing, one must take into consideration adjacencies and issues of public and private space. Adjacency was strategized to promote an urbanism of awareness of other occupants and their daily activities and interests, which is speculated to be a muse for creative activity. For this reason, the mixed-use component is a black box performing arts center, which is also articulated to provide views down to the street and to allow pedestrians to view the creative activity within the elevated volume.

Responding to the cultural and technological moment in which the physical world is increasingly photographed and indexed, thus creating a dilution of first hand experience, this thesis seeks the generate “photogenic architecture� that instills the photographic capture of moments and objects over time within physical space. Photogrammetry, a modeling tool that generates three-dimensional digital models out of a series of photographs, was interrogated functionally and conceptually for its potential to conflate many frames from different moments into one object. The output of this research is defining a material and spatial strategy in which the subjects of capture and the representation of them (photograph) are merged into one, providing provocative re-readings of space and its spatial history.
