KAIZUKA SUBWAY STATION The Kaizuka Subway Station is located in Hakozaki, Japan. The city of Fukuoka is planning a massive redevelopment of the Kyushu University Campus and anticipates the area to develop into a regional city center on the way to central Fukuoka. Fukuoka City and Kyushu University have collaborated in establishing objectives for the redevelopment, but have not extended into the properties owned by the subway. This project is a master plan proposal with a focus on Kaizuka Subway Station. Through this project, I have investigated different approaches and solutions to influence the human experience of architecture through movement. I aimed to explore the effects of architectural design in relation to urban infrastructures and existing city objectives.

MASTER PLAN DEVELOPMENT The master plan concept revolves around the existing need to reconnect the western and eastern parts of Hakozaki City. The first move was pushing the existing subway below ground. Originally, the subway emerges to the ground level in order to connect to the next train line, which begins on the ground level. Using the existing grid lines that extend from the city and the subway lines, the geometry of the master plan is developed. The public network is then lifted to become the skywalk to separate pedestrians from vehicular traffic. A sloped ramp from the west to east creates the main connection of the skywalk. Vertical openings that are generated by the original urban grid provide a variety of opportunities for light, vertical circulation, or a combination of both. The skywalk is then embraced by buildings of mixed use functions to create a commercial promonade that leads toward a variety of attractive destinations.

A DIFFERENT SUBWAY The subway platform has direct access to natural light and vegetation, which creates the atmosphere of being above ground. The platform encourages multiple walking pace options for users to enjoy according to their individual situations. MOVEMENT The circulation through the site was designed to be as simples as possible. The platform circulation moves towards the main core, bringing passengers toward the same direction. When arriving to the concourse, this is where visitors can move in any direction they desire. The connection to the plaza and commercial area is quick and direct.

STRUCTURE A structural system of a building should not only provide stability, but it should reflect the objectives of the architecture. One of the goals for this project was to develop a flexible structure that provides the opportunity for changes in the future. Hakozaki City plans to grow into a regional center that functions as a main destination on the path toward Fukuoka. It is logical to assume that as the city grows, it will require changes in infrastructure, and a subway station is an integral part of it. Architecturally, a structural system that is able to enhance the influence of the circulation and activity of users is desired. The sky walk and plaza have a vast area to cover in the master plan. The massive amount of structure needed for the skywalk, as well as seismic isolation, lead me to choose precast concrete as the primary structural system. Not only does precast concrete provide flexibility in renovations and efficient repairs, but its repetition makes it economical.

MAVERICKS NEXUS BRIDGE In this studio we were given the opportunity to work with HKS, Inc. and Mark Cuban to develop a complex for the new NBA Practice Facility for the Dallas Mavericks Basketball Team. The task we were given was to develop a mixed use complex that embodied Mark Cuban and the Mavericks’ identity, while designing architecture that could produce effective results regarding function for all types of employees. The concept for the Mavericks Nexus Bridge was creating a new destination that embodies the Dallas Community and Dallas Maverick’s culture, which is narrowed down to Basketball, Innovation, and Family. Unlike most NBA facilities, this complex is designed to allow the public to be involved in activities outside and inside the buildings.

PUBLIC ACTIVITIES There are views to the exhibition courts and interactive water features throughout the plaza. The public practice courts are shaded under the nexus bridge but are provided with natural light from voids surrounding the structural columns. There is a cafe, shops, a museum, auditorium, and views to the practice facilities on the public plaza level. INNOVATION CENTER The innovation center holds a workshop and classrooms on the public floors and is separated from the incubator offices by a that sloped walkway brings visitors to and from the Trinity Grove plaza to the Maverick’s Plaza with the media mesh ceiling that displays various light shows. The incubator offices on the upper levels provide spacious, collaborative, critical thinking atmospheres for top performance.

DEVELOPING A COMMUNITY DESTINATION The site is located along a levee and a renovated pedestrian bridge that is heavily used by the local community. This created an opportunity to develop this project into more than just a building. The program is separated into three separate buildings, but shares common intersecting spaces such as the plaza, ground floor, and parking garages. Although the programs are separated, the common spaces allow for both physical and visual interaction, further activating the site. The NBA facility and Research area provide the public with controlled views into the practice courts and hold the public gift shop. The administration building holds the public exhibition courts and museum. Lastly, the innovation center holds classes and exhibits for the community.

INSPIRING AT EVERY LEVEL To create a complex that inspires the community needs to be able to provide an interesting moment at every level. All three buildings are connected to each other, to the public, and to basic services in various ways. The image on the left is a view from the parking garage to the “cenote” of the Maverick’s paradise. Not only does this provide an interesting view, but it allows for ventilation and natural light. Moments like these are able to activate a space and encourage an active lifestyle. Throughout this project I attempted to design architecture that encourages people to be physically active and engaged when on the site. 23

LONG ACRES RANCH ECOLODGE The Long Acres Ranch Ecolodge sits in a tucked-away area of the ranch, but is also connected to on-site ecotourist activities such as kayaking, hay rides, and nature walks. The ecolodge complex has it’s own paths that diverge from public nature paths and create a loop among the housing. The entire complex’s design takes advantage of wind to provide a desirable outdoor atmosphere. The view of the landscape is uninterrupted when walking through each building and the overall simplicity of the designs do not pull guests’ attention from their surroundings. The lodge concept design is demonstrated in the diagrams on the next page. The common space is centrally located with access to the prevailing wind which allows natural ventilation. The rooms intersect the common public space while obtaining the best views surrounding the entire building.

ACTIVATING SOCIALIZATION The outdoor common space provides an area for meeting and interaction. This gives visitors and guests a shaded in-between area before entering their private spaces. This area also provides protect from the elements, while allowing guests to remain in an “outdoor� space. STRUCTURE The primary structure of the cabins is made up of wood construction and steel connections. The natural materials reflect the surrounding natural landscape. The natural materials will eventually change appearance over time due to the elements and further blend in with the existing trees. Short windows line the entire cabin above head height to allow natural light in all directions, while maintaining privacy. Horizontal wood cladding wraps around the facades that need privacy, while full height glazing is used for private views from the bedrooms to the surrounding landscape.

PRIVATE CABINS The private cabins are offered at Long Acres Ranch to provide a more isolated experience of the reserve. These cabins can only be accessed by their own individual pathways through the main route to the Ranch’s many activities. This provides these cabins with privacy while remaining connected throughout the site. The bedroom and living spaces are separated by the main entrance, which is open to the air. This provides guests with the ability to control their need for privacy. The main entrance provides access to the two interior spaces or direct access to the back outdoor spaces. There is flexible occupancy because of the spacious living space. The living room can either accommodate temporary visitors or more over night guests.

MEDIALAB HTX The medialab HTX is a media laboratory for community education, media creation and production, and technological research. The program consists of an auditorium, classrooms, studios for creation and research, a cafe, gallery, a fabrication lab, and multipurpose spaces. The concept of the building is inspired by the duality in the development of media. The folding of the building represents different aspects of media that have been developed. When media is further developed there are also things that develop unknowingly. For example, social media was created to connect people together, but recently people are so obsessed with their gadgets and reputations on media that they forget the importance of connections in person. These secondary occurrences are represented in our building through the spaces created in between each folding moment.

COMMUNITY CONNECTION The medialab HTX opens up to the community through its ground floor plaza. The plaza opens up towards the metro line, towards the west and the east side receives people through the extended overhand of the public plane. Both ends begin to slope down 4’ toward the center and the building can be accessed through the plaza covered by the building. BUILDING PLACEMENT The building is broken up into three main pieces. The west end holds the more private program and the east end holds the semi-public program. The middle part of the building holds the atrium above and mechanical room underground, which allows pipes and ducts to travel toward the chases in each side. STRUCTURE In order to create a sense of continuity, the medialab HTX utilizes a reinforced concrete structure. The building is made up of concrete waffle slabs that are supported by a 30’x30’ and 30’x50’ concrete column grid system. The waffle slab allows adequate space for running ducts through each third of the building. The column grid system allows for flexible spaces, which is important because the programs and technology of the building will gradually change over time. There is a special case, on Level 2, where the slab is hanging from the slab above through steel cable connections.

THE LINK The Link is the linear connection to the Langford A, B, and C buildings. The design is influenced by the concept of circulation. Since the building is replacing a bridge that was mainly used for circulation, the design takes the horizontal movement of circulation and combines it with vertical movement, creating the iconic zigzag form of the building. The Link provides a cafe, gallery exhibitions, study areas, lounge spaces, and presentation areas. With these programs, the building becomes more than a means of circulation through the Langford complex. The Link’s cafe attracts students and allows them to view the work and progress of students from the Department of Architecture. The lounge, study areas, roof garden, and a presentation deck provide locations for students to experience a different atmosphere from their studios.

LOBBY

SPATIAL ATMOSPHERE The zig-zag form of the circulation is repeated through the design of The Link. Since the iconic staircase is pushed into teach floor of the building, each space has a different look to it. While in the staircase, light filters in through the top. The sides are made of frosted glass so the only things visible are silhouettes of people or objects. Each floor is pushed in and pulled out depending on the function of the space. For example, the cafe is pulled out to create more space and the hallway space is pushed in to provide light to the levels below it. The voids in The Link provide visual connections and a difference in atmosphere because of the perceived heights. BUILDING DESIGN COLLABORATION The concept of The Link developed around the need to collaborate with integrating the building with two adjacent buildings designed by two different teams. One team designed Langford B and the other designed Langford C. The Link is situated between these two buildings and connects them together. Both buildings created outdoor and indoor open spaces that highlight the circulation of The Link, emphasizing it as a connection between the buildings. 53
