PROJECT1 SPATIAL SOLID/ BATHING PAVILION “Using diagramming to understand organizational strategies as generative components of the design process,” students were asked to “Utilize an architectural precedent as a resource to develop design intent and strategy,” while striving to “Understand the intentions, implications and consequences of a particular set of design strategies.” “Using the analysis and research from each architectural precedent, students were then asked to “Create a spatial solid of the figural space of (the assigned precedents) in Rhino3D by modeling the negative space.” Finally, students were asked to use their derived spatial solid “As the point of departure for the design of a bathing pavilion,” addressing “approach/arrival, spatial sequence, scale, and light, consider(ing) the relationship between the required spatial zones and experiential qualities of each area.”

PROJECT2 SURFACE/ FASHION RUNWAY “Using a semi-rigid planar material, students were asked to develop 4 self-supporting models that have spatial, structural and organizational implications, i.e. the surfaces inhabit both vertical and horizontal dimensions; define a space, form, or volume; are self-supporting; and have a specific organization.” “Using the resulting models,” students were then asked to “develop a proposal for a “pop‐up” fashion runway. “Specifically,” students were asked to “observe how previous models might be developed to create areas of increased porosity or density to establish areas for privacy; expanded to encompass larger areas for group activity; functionas apertures for entry and modulate natural light; and finally, span or enclose the horizontal and vertical dimensions of a prescribed area.”

PROJECT3 SURFACE STRUCTURE/ LIFEGUARD STATION Using “TWO of the final SURFACE models” from PROJECT2, students were asked “to develop (them) into an autonomous structural system.” “Observ(ing) the behavior of the system(s) employed in designing and fabricating (the) surface models,” students were to begin “by extrapolating from the morphological data inherent in the surface constructions: cuts, bends, folds, curved folds. The final TWO constructions (were to be) selfsupporting structures and entirely detached from the Exercise 2 surface models.” Using these models as a point of departure, students were then asked to design a self-supporting lifeguard station prototype, supplying “unobstructed views toward the ocean bathing area,” “locker room space for the lifeguards, a readily accessible Emergency Care Room, an office, an elevated observation room, and a unisex restroom.”

PROJECT4 SYNTHESIS + SYNERGISM/ BUTTERFLY HABITAT “Synthesis is the process of combining different elements to produce a more complex, coherent whole... Synergism is the interaction of discrete agencies or conditions that produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their independent effects. Each of these methodologies offered unique spatial, structural, organizational and generative potentialities, and in addition, adaptive qualities that created the capability for variation. Our final design exercise this semester implemented these methodologies into a coordinated strategy to analyze information; created an awareness and understanding of site; dictated movement and trajectories; organized program and spatial relationships; and finally, as generators of a synthetic design process in the development of an architectural proposal for a small‐scale public building,” a Butterfly Habitat.
