N. 32nd

Street

The project site is located at intersection of N. 32nd Street and Powelton Ave. I chose this site for it’s view of Center City that includes the Art Museum and the Ben Franklin Parkway.

The driving concept for this project is the division and separation of a cylindrical solid. A central corridor allows circulation between the two independent forms on the exterior, while a central spine connects the forms vertically. In my initial design scheme, the North tower was double in height of the first, but this created a model that was too complex and significantly decreased the functionality of my Revit software.

The South facing facade incorporates a panels system consisting of vertically oriented fins that protrude 12� from the face of the building. Distance between these vertical fins is controlled by instance parameters allowing for the design to be adaptable to multiple facade scenarios. Because this project is conceptual in nature, the panel system has not been modified to included varying patterns. South Facade Panel System

South Facade Similar to the South facing facade, the North facade includes a system of vertically oriented fins. In addition, the North facade includes a panel that spans between to vertical fins. This is meant to create a more thermally efficient envelope.

North Facade Panel System

The spacing between vertical elements on this panel is based on the Fibonacci sequence where distance between the panels is the sum of the previous two panels.

The space between the two forms creates a crevasse that has been filled with a curtain wall system to optimize transparency and create views between the two towers. A central connector provides a link between the two forms. This page: Images modeled and rendered using Autodesk Revit 2013 Following page: Image modeled in Revit, Rendered in TwinMotion
