Programmed rooms such as B rehearsal spaces and workshops intersect with the roof of the atrium, interacting with both interior and exterior program. Windows of various sizes encourage curated views of different indoor activities, allowing park users to peek backstage at the creation Cof props, and passerbys to see artists or students practicing for their next show.

RO C K C U T A RC H I T E C T U R E ESTABLISHING A FUTURE VERNACULAR Construction on Mars poses a wealth of problems for the first colony. The three most demanding issues are the extreme climate, the high cost of transporting materials to the site, and the affects of radiation on technology and the body. One solution to these issues is the introduction of rock-cut architecture as the martian vernacular.

Just as in the original rock-cut process, rovers will strategically cut layers from the top-down, therefore requiring no scaffolding. The 3D-excavation process will be akin to 3D-printing, however without the costly need to produce or bring the printing material.

For the same reason, it is infeasible to bring objects such as furniture, therefore programmatic elements for each room are integrated as much as possible into the rock-cut process.

RADIATION

-55°Cto -153

METALMETAL BODY BODY

Currently, the only sufficient protetction from radiation is sheer mass. By digging into the canyon side, enough thickness is acheived to effectively shield from radiation. Below grade temperature swings are far less extreme and much easier to regulate. Since the cost of transport is related directly to the mass of the payload, rock-cut architecture is far more cost-effective by minimizing materials brought to the site. Finally, with an automated robotic construction process, the first habitation may be prepared before the arrival of the first humans at the expense of time, rather than money.

View of communal biospheres

A hierarchal building structure is established to create distinct strata of social interaction. The deeper into the rock, the more private the space becomes. Individual sleeping quarters deep within the rock give way to shared common rooms to form a single living unit. Each unit faces on to a larger community biosphere, developing larger, neighbourly interactions, and giving residents a direct view into greenspace. A series of tunnels connects community biospheres to eachother and to larger, agricultural biospheres. This strategy addresses an extreme social condition in which many people are condensed into a confined space, and psychological health is both precarious and crucial to the success of the mission.

MORPHOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT

Vertical program requirements

1 : 10 Fragment model


This project focuses on genetically modified plants and the specific requirements created when housing and researching such species. The interaction of multiple genetically-modified species creates a complex ecosystem that has been engineered to meet human needs. The organization of various species is therefore dependent upon programmatic, climactic, and species interactions.

Research Level Plan


Program requirements include laboratories, offices, archival storage, maintenance facilities, and a restaurant. The environmental conditions of each are legible on the facade which creates layers of different opacities intersecting with vertical services. Sectional relationships are developed between differently programmed spaces using units that both hang down and rise up into voids.

Section A


The strucutural design allows for portions of the floor plate to successively “drop off � as you ascend the tower; these portions become roof gardens for growing and testing genetically-modified plant species. Large voids are created for common spaces as portions of the floor plate disappear, connecting several levels to one open area. Visual connections are made between floors as volumes rise up out of the floor or hang down from above, creating an intricate and active gathering space.

LETTERS OF REFERENCE

Paul Dowsett ARCHITECTURE Inc.

May 20, 2012

To Whom it may Concern: Montgomery de Luna worked as a co-op intern from the University of Waterloo Scool of Architecture with our office for four months from January to April 2012. As an employee, Montgomery is dependable, punctual, outgoing, and very amicable. His interest in the work of sustainable.TO is evident in his attention to detail and high quality of work on a range of sustainable projects, from business to residential. Montgomery not only distinguished himself consistently with his outstanding level of performance on day-to-day architectural assistance within the office, he also provided a unique contribution by organizing our office standards materials. He further provided exceptional performance in his extra-curricular mentorship of youth in the “Community. Design. Initiative.” at the East Scarborough Storefront, as well as in his leadership role in the mentorship of Grade 12 Environmental Geography students and their sustainable house projects at the Riverdale Collegiate Institute. I would not hesitate to hire Montgomery again in the future. Montgomery will be an asset to any architectural firm. I would be happy to discuss his abilities and can only recommend him highly. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you and best regards, O/A
