R . E. C . C EN TE R 5th year fall - Studio IX - 2017 LOCATION - PHILADELPHIA, PA

BACKGROUND CONTEXT Located in South Philadelphia sits several old and abandonded boat docking piers, each different from the next. Some are wooden and overgrown with vegetation while others are made of all concrete and lacking any growth at all. A trail connects each one to the next and backin into Philly. THye government has renovated the two end piers making them usable and functional for the public yet the rest remain untouched.

CRITICAL ISSUE In order to make this a place of interest for people rather than a pass by location, more piers need to be renovated and a point of interest must be added to draw in the people needed to create a livable functioning trail.

Easy access from trail, for people looking for a quick stop to refresh and continue along the trail, or to continue through the building and use the various outdoor activities found along the pier such as kayak rentals and fishing outlook.

Used as a central water monitoring facility for the rest of the Delaware River, where scientists can study the impact the surrounding city has on it and develop was to mitigate that impact. Designed to allow visitors to have a visual connection with them yet provides private space to work.

Intended to educate visitors the different ways water quality can be impacted and the different means of reducing and helping those influences. Classroom space accomidates for student tours as well as opn gallery space for different environmental groups in community to change out displays.

Connection to Pier

REPURPOSED PIER Building on top of the existing concrete pier, green recreational space is added as well as a fishing pier and a dock for kayaks and boats to be launched. All increases the activity and use.

SECTION THROUGH RESEARCH

DAYLIGHTING + SHADING The angle of the roof accommodates for both summer and winter sun angles. An over hang helps protect against the intense summer sun yet allows the winter sun (at a lower angle) to enter the space and warm the interior environment.

SECTION THROUGH LOBBY

STACK VENTILATION

Window openings toward the bottom of the building allow cool air to naturally flow in. Opening on the top of the building allow for the rising warm air to be released. This keeps the air circulation consistent through the building. Openings are created by a window and louver system, skylights and the wetland.

SP I R I T UA L AWA R EN ES S C E N TER 4th year spring - Studio VIII - 2017 LOCATION - HAVANA, CUBA

BACKGROUND CONTEXT Communism has been ruling over Cuba for over 50 years. During that period of time, religion was oppressed, meaning people weren’t allowed to freely and openly practice their religious beliefs and cultrues. Being oppressed for such a long period of time, people began loosing their beliefs and loosing themselves spiritually. However, recently the government changed hands which in turn opened up the religious door. This allows the residents to freely experiment and discover themselves and their beliefs.

CRITICAL ISSUE Following the proposed expo people to move to Cuba from around the world to help bost the economy), and the newly found religious freedom among residents, there wil be a complete new demopgraphic within the society. Incoming peple will bring various and unique cultral, spiritual and religious beliefs as well as current residents will desire to explore the endless possibilities. The current Cuban community does not accomadate for this diversity and does not give any space to worship besides a select few Catholic curches. In order to help both the residents of the community and the new people coming in, a spiritual center will provide a space for ALLpeople to feel welcome and feel safe to discover and practice whatever they woudl please.

*partner work - Devin Crowley


SPI R I TUA L I TY Spirituality is the connection between all the differing religions and cultures. It is the broader category that the others fall under. Believing in something greater than yourself, regardless of what that may be is spirituality.

BACKGROUND CONTEXT Two projects demonstrating an understanding of construction The first is a case study of the Yale Center for British Art. Groups were to analysis and study how the building was constructed and created a detail wall section and 3D model based off construction documents. The second is a design build project located directly off a trail head. Intended to give people space to rest. The project was designed and constructed by students.

Third Floor Long Gallery

Kahn is an architect known for his use of material beauty, simple geometrics and a militaristic lack of ornamentation. The decoration of his buildings is in its structure and the use of light paths and solar shading. Kahn’s goal with the Center for British Art was to reach every room with natural light.

DESIGN ITERATIONS I

LHVA • MUSOA • ARCH 320 DESIGN BUILD • 101 SOUTH LAUREL STREET

In conjunction with the Lackawanna Heritage Valley Authority, Marywood University’s School of Architecture and the students of the design build studio have analyzed, designed and constructed an observation platform deeply rooted in the historical context provided by the Gravity Slope Coal Colliery, the active railways of Archbald, and the invested citizens of the area ultimately defining the Laurel Street Trailhead.
