E U C L I D E A N F O R M AT I O N S The formation of each seam originates from the kaleidoscope aggregations of pavilion pieces, and underlying geometries of the Russel Wright objects. The seams create a language between the galleries, and the site allowing for different light conditions to illuminate the space. Light but structural, the use of composite material came from the exploration of shell casting techniques of resin and fabric during the pavilion project. The composite further emphasizes the withdrawn quality of the gallery, as the semi translucent stitched volumes juxtapose the fragmented dragon-rock site.

U N D E R G RO U N D B I C Y C L E C O R E S If the idea of modularity is the connection to the old, the integration of the bike is the connection to the new. Alongside increasing accessibility to fresh food, we aim to promote healthy living by connecting this neighborhood with bike paths throughout Philadelphia. We have designed bike paths stretching out from our site in order to connect both this SEPTA stop as well as the community with the vast capillaries of biking paths weaving throughout the city. In addition, our modules are able to support this program with two important function options. For bike owners who ride to the SEPTA, or simply those who need a convenient storage location, the modules can provide secure and covered bike storage. For those who are not bike owners, the modules can house bike rentals. The future is a world freed from fossil fuel and we hope our project can be an integral part of that evolution.

EXPERIENCE & EXPLORATION

Community Center Architecture can have a tremendous impact on the community. With this design I wanted to meet the modern needs of different socioeconomic levels of Six Mile,SC. The library consists of three main parts. The form integrates “technology,” “information” and establishes “experience & exploration space..” The three

forms weave together as the person interacts with the spaces.

The diagrams above show conceptual form studies. The diagrams guided in the design and the positioning of the atrium space within the building. The study looked at the relationship between the circulation and the location of the atrium. The grand corner entrance to the building invites and suggests a movement into the building from the site.

Circulation Through circulation, the public and private spaces become one. Upper levels provide privacy for the residents; however, atrium circulation blends lower and upper levels together.

Directional Movement

Learning + Common Spaces The learning spaces and the common spaces can be seen from the atrium. This activates the atrium making it a node of interactions. When standing in the atrium, an individual can be immersed in the student space while being on the first floor. Atrium Movement The atrium extends from the main street to the back of the building. The diagonal form of the atrium drives people into the building and navigates them through. As an individual walks through, he or she can experience the learning community.

CREATING VOLUMES

Process To create the volumes, a paper folding technique was used. The folding pattern was based on the created geometry from overlapping circles. The geometry was later tessellated and formed into a module. Each volume connected to the next by intersecting a cut on each side along the curved edge. The Module would then interlock with the next on the wing like surface.

Idea

The paper folding exercise led to the development of a modular living solution. Each paper folded volume created a conceptual space. The modules could be divided into bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens. Also, the shape of the modules allows for smaller volumes to collect water and generate energy with the wing like surfaces. Solar panels could be mounted into wing like extension on top of each volume. As a result interconnected volumes could create a self-sustainable living environment.

CROP -STOP K I T C H E N Initiative

The Crop Stop project emphasizes collaboration and engagement between the students at local schools, the community, and farmers in the region. The goal of the initiative is to increase supply chain activities between farmers and school systems by providing a lowcost, easily assembled commercial kitchen.

Kitchen

The Crop Stop Kitchen is designed at a low cost with efficiency in mind. The efficiency is incorporated in the structural system with the use of “Sim-Ply.� The Sim-ply system involves prefabricated cnc-cut pieces which lock in together like puzzle pieces. This allows for assembly by unskilled labor. Also, both the kitchen and the walk in freezer units are modular. This allows for optimum arrangement of the two units on site. Multiple options of the arrangement of units are shown below.

The diagrams to the left show movement patterns and density of the traffic on site. The high traffic patterns led to the idea of creating a faรงade which emphasizes the arrival and departure. The diagrams to the right show the structural breakdown of the faรงade. As the an individual walks through, the unit morphs and allows for more light to pass through. Thus changing the experience of the viewer.
