CLIENT PROFILE

2

The National Geographic Society started in Washington DC in 1888 as a small group of travelers and their patrons in the late Victorian Age, a time

3

4

when European and American explorers were finding a strong audience at home for tales of adventure and foreign cultures. Shortly after its own founding, the Society started a magazine of its own, which covered a wide variety of world cultures and natural resources, with a particular emphasis on maps and high-quality photography. In September of 2015, the Society announced a somewhat controversial new partnership with 21st Century Fox, part of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, to reorganize their publications for a digital age. The Society hopes that it will be able to maintain the integrity of its mission long into the future by taking some risks now and hopefully not losing the loyalty of generations of readers in the process. The infusion of cash that the Murdoch deal brings will allow the National Geographic Society to fulfill an old ambition to open an outpost on the Pacific Rim, and they have identified a site in San Francisco’s Presidio. The Society wishes to develop a mixed-use building here that will house their west coast corporate offices and they have selected the following building.

Human Behavior Clear circulation and pathways

Tolleson Design is a nationally known design agency. They have relocated to this location, where used to be the home and showroom for the Amtico flooring company.

Changes I would Make 1) single working station: was open to the space. improvement -> adding glass door to separate it from the rest of the working station, turns into a semi-private office 2) meeting room: ttoo close to kitchen area. improvement -> move to the front of the building to be close to conference room, library. clients and visitors can get there without walking through the whole office.

Maximize efficiency & functionality while clarifying circulation

SITE HISTORY

Architects Jeremy Barbour Taklebox Architecture Client Aesop australian skincare brand

Anson Parson Hotaling built this structure as a headquarter for his several business interests which included liquor, real estate, and trade. And this location was once West Coast’s largest whiskey repository. The East Annex has initially been a stable for a hotel, but Mr Hotaling purchased both the East and West Annexes to warehouse his whiskey. He and the whiskey business still prospered in 1906, and his buildings survived the Earthquake and Fire.

NEIGHBORHOOD HISTORY

4

Built Year 1866

The neighborhood went through a huge transition since the beginning when it was developed as an extension of the original commercial center at Portsmouth Plaza, then Montgomery street became the principal of the young city in the 1850’s - 1860’s. However, only a handful of buildings survived through the fires and earthquakes in the 1850’s and between 1868-1906.

Approach/Key Influence To work with what is already in place, weaving a diplomatic presence into the fabric of the locale – fault lines and natural rifts within the area’s geological timeframe were essential influences, expressed through a prominent raked wall of plastered texture and form.

AUDACIOUS

After 1870, as the business district moved south and west, many buildings lost their more distinguished occupants. From professional and retail, there was a change to manufacturing and wholesaling: liquor and tobacco dealers, cigar factories, leather works and later printing and paper warehousing. The great depression of the 1930’s further weakened both the industrial and commercial bases of the Jackson Square area, and many buildings became vacant. Since the early 1950’s, the historical and architectural merit of the area was rediscovered by the growing new wholesale furnishings and decorators industry. Nowadays, the historic Jackson Square is still evolving and changing. It seems like a recent trend for those upscale brands to move in, such as A.P.C, a French luxury clothing brand and Aesop, an Australian high-end skincare line. They both took over galleries and turned them into fashion boutiques. They are not the first and only. There are more and more art and antique galleries leaving while fashion and tailor business move in. Additionally, this transformation can be dated back in May of 2015.

- CASE STUDY Museum of the African Diaspora Location 385 mission st san francisco, ca 94105

HISTORY MOAD was developed as a public-private partnership, which is led by the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency.

Architects Gensler 1

4

1999 - African American Cultural Institute was included in a vacant parcel of Yerba Buena Gardens. A complex of cultural faculties worked together to design a fresh place with vital programming like nowhere else.

Project Year 2013 Current Exhibition sep 20, 2017 - mar 04, 2018 En Mas’ Orta Mas’

2003 - MOAD was funded and turned into a nonprofit organization. The newly done building was design by the Freelon Group.

As the culture of African and African Diaspora are known for its richness and diversity as well as its connection with nature. It is easy to find these concepts in their arts, music, clothing, language ,etc. In their culture, the “self” is never separated from their world. Moreover, it varies not only between countries but within each group or tribe. From a family to a village or a nation, the culture is all about unity and united people.

2013 - Renovation done by Gensler.

2005 - MOAD was opened in Dec.

INSIGHTS ABOUT THIS CULTURE 1) How public performance art plays a vital role in their tradition and its transition through years and countries as well as the connections between carnival and performance, masquerade and social criticism, diaspora. 2) The production focuses on the experiences of colonialism and slavery in the mid 19th. The struggle for independence and civil right in the mid 20th and migrations between their home and the colonial centers. 3) Religion does not take a massive part of this event.

“EN MAS’ considers a history of performance that does not take place on the stage or in the gallery but rather in the streets, addressing not the few but the many.”

OCULUS

Lighting Design Snøhetta Arup Square Footage 170,000 square feet Project Year 2013-2016

After the 3-year-long construction of expansion, the SFMOMA has been known to spend most of the energy on its lighting, which ultimately gives us a new perspective of a museum. The major redesigning that visitors can find out is the staircase, which initially was a multi-layered tower that blocked parts of the sunlight from above. It is now redesigned to allow sunlight to flood the space, which gives a grand, warm welcome. In this new version of SFMOMA, lighting sure serves an integral role, as well as a design feature that emphasized by the vast amount of LED lighting that appears in different fixtures, including spotlight, cove, and strip. Not to mention the different fixtures that tailor throughout the entire exhibition area, which helps to respond to each collection. EXHIBITION AREAS, VERTICAL CIRCULATION

4

Throughout the exhibition area, it is covered by many track lightings, which functions as its key feature to provide the flexibility for the museum. It is critical for the space to respond to different collections as the museum changes regularly. Recessed lighting, as well as cove lighting, are placed to balance out the overall ambient in some exhibition areas without showing harsh shadows. Natural light, as well as linear lighting, are designed through the primary vertical circulation, which also plays the role of way-finding.

CAFE, MERCHANOISE, RESTROOM, WAY-FINDING The variety of design features on the first level clearly define spaces successfully, including colors and lighting. The warm tone of the cafe indeed creates a comfortable area for a restaurant business. The linear pendant lights continue the element of the line through the whole space, yet strongly brings the design together as a unit of this area. Retail area has this even ,and consistent, adjustable track lighting that allows the light to focus on different areas as the display is changed. This fixture provides everything a retail needs in lighting. As visitors walk into the second floor, where tickets, coat checks, and information center is, the ceiling is tailored in recessed linear lights, which serves as a way-finding design while the linear lights are pointing to what visitors would probably look for. Restroom design is comparably strong in the museum. It is colored in an exuberant red. Lighting shows its strong character as well as response to the strong interior color.

Unique diffused cove lighting that creates a nice wash of the entire space without distracting harsh shadow also provides an interesting ceiling design.

To minimize the visuality of clutter, the designer has miniaturized the duct outlets and hide them in the ceiling to make the ceiling looks like a blank canvas.

However, the personnel was not changed while the rule of the Presidio was changed from Spain to Mexico. U.S Army Post (1846-1994) - During the Mexican-American War, the U.S took over the Presidio ,and it became a large military base, which was developed into the essential Army post 22

on the Pacific coast. A little before the 19th century, the Army

1906 - TENTS AFTER FIRE & EARTHQUAKE

began an extensive forestation of the Presidio then, in 1874, the Presidio was opened to the civil except during wartime. Post to Park (1994-present) - In 1972, the Presidio of San Francisco was founded. In 1994, the Army base closed. The land of Presidio was officially transferred to the National Park Service.

CONCEPT STATEMENT

Since long time ago, the ocean has been providing wealth resources to our living. The ocean is where life and culture begins. It not only brings in new things but also connects us with the rest of the world. To take advantage of the ocean, people found their way to conquer it. Therefore, the inspiration of the boat appears TULE CANOE Before the Spanish people came, the San Francisco Bay Area was occupied by the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe where they stayed as a fixed village and moved sometimes for seasonal food, such as acorn. Alongside the bay shore, the Ohlone used to collect shells there, which they used for necklaces and earrings and ornamentation. The richness of the culture itself ,as well as the historical location - Presidio, makes the Ohlone an ideal concept of design that brings together the land and the company. The idea of a village and Ohlone huts are inspiring for the layouts and private office units. The consistency of pattern is also desired to apply in the floor plan. Not to mention the variety of materials, colors and tradition as well as the implication of it.

30

SAN CARLOS San Carlos was the very first ship to enter the Bay. It was under the command of Spanish captain Juan de Ayala and successfully made it through the fog and strong current on August 5th, 1775. San Carlos was a packet-boat, which became popular during the 18th and 19th centuries; mainly was designed for mail and freight transportation between Europe and their colonial countries. It is the early form of rig configuration that carries significant elements of inventions and studies. It represents the period of history as well as its development. In the various studies National Geographic has been doing, history and oceanography build the strongest connection with the land of its new headquarter. Not to mention its performance and functionality response well to the building floor plan. Efficient circulation and functional layout are the main goals to achieve.

A designer is a planner with an aesthetic sense. Bruno Munari Light, God’s eldest daughter, is a principal beauty in a building. Thomas Fuller Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you anywhere. Albert Einstein People who build their own home tend to be very courageous. These people are curious about life. They’re thinking about what it means to live in a house, rather than just buying a commodity and making it work. Tom Kundig An object should be judged by whether it has a form consistent with its use. Bruno Munari


Bruno Munari Designers are meant to be loved, not to be understood. Fabien Barral We shape our buildings: therefore they shape us. Winston Churchill When we build, let us think that we build forever. John Ruskin It’s kind of fun to do the impossible. Walt Disney Form ever follows function. Louis H. Sullivan A design isn’t finished until someone is using it. Brenda Laurel Everything is designed.

CONCEPT STATEMENT “Embrace” is a residential project that located in Laurent Height, San Fran-cisco. Living in a big family, which includes three generations in the building, leads to a variety of differences in lifestyles and needs. Therefore, here comes the concept “Embrace.” “Embrace” carries a mission of creating love, supportive and relaxing space for the family to enjoy home while surrounded by loved ones. Moreover, to complete every family members’ needs to improve living and life quality and family support. Embrace means to hold and accept; to put your arms around someone to show love and care; embrace is what makes family different from anyone else. Home is where we feel loved, forgiven and protected. Wherever we are and whatever happens, we come home eventually.

58

“Embrace” not only to create a space that makes people feel embrace but also create a space that forces people to embrace. Moreover, to embrace color and space. It is traditional, yet modern; it is so precious, but also simple; it is sometimes crazy, sometimes sensible. The mixed design well represent its location - San Francisco, where uptown meets downtown in a block, cultures bounce into cultures.

CONCEPT STATEMENT The piazza was first built to practice grid system. As time went by, churches, shops, and apartments filled in around the city. Piazza then became a focal point of a town. The piazza allows people to get together and contribute to improving their society, which is the goal of my design as well as this project - to create a space that people feel comfortable to take, to give and to exchange. To achieve the goal of design, some features is to build the connection between people in this fast-paced city. Evviva’s mission is to bring the approachable and comfortable environment into the neighborhood

84

Following the client’s love for Dean & DeLuca and Eatly, the inspiration of EVVIVA appears. EVVIVA means cheers in Italian, which empathizes with the significance of our design -- the beginning of celebrations.

HISTORY OF MISSION BAY

4

Mission bay area used to be a lagoon back in the days then it became an industrial district for shipbuilding and repair. Around 1910, the land has been filled for growing city. Until the late 90’s, this area has rapidly become a high-end district with luxury apartments and fancy restaurants and is continually being developed, known as mission bay project. However, the location of the market hall is still in the process of development, it is not as active as imagined, which means there are more population and tide of people we can expect in the future.
