TABLE OF CONTENTS


INDUCED EMOTIONS

Three words, be it either an emotion or reaction, were to be chosen and induced by design. Each word, or space, was to be designed and housed within a set dimension. Much freedom was given to the design of the spaces, though these spaces could not exceed the set dimensions set forth by the professor. Circulation was a crucial part of this project as it aided in transitioning between the three spaces. A plinth was also a required part of the design and could either be carved into or act as a platform for the three spaces to sit on. This plinth could be any size or shape.

3 WORDS

1

The three words I chose were panic, relief and vertigo. These words were chosen based on my childhood experiences and architectural inspiration. The circulation created not only works with my words, but acts as a path which could be reversed. The intent of my design is to allow anyone to put themselves into these three spaces and hold my same sentiments.

PERMANENT GALLERY

An art museum was to be designed in Dallas, TX, which would house some of the work of contemporary artist Bruce Nauman, whom I chose from a list of other artists. At least ten works of art had to be selected from the artist and displayed in a permanent exhibition. The site was located in an industrial area full of obstructing power lines in West Dallas. In this project, the gallery spaces alone were designed before any site information was given, however we were unallowed to begin designing the whole building.

NAUMAN

7

Bruce Nauman has been considered a postminimalist sculptor, a post-sculptor conceptualist, a pioneering video artist, a minimalist performance artist, and an infiltrator of pop culture. He has also been credited with creating “the first viable mutation” of Minimalism. Nauman’s practice constantly tests rational systems of language, spatial and bodily boundaries, duration, and psychology through sculpture, video installations, constructed environments/installations, neon art, paintings, etchings and self-portraits.

FLAGSHIP STORE

ARCH 607 - Fall 2011

NOOKA

19

A retail boutique/flagship showroom for NOOKA was to be designed; a forward-thinking New York fashion design company founded by artist/designer Matthew Waldman. The nature of products sold are design specific that reaches over cultural, social, and age specific boundaries. The design concept was to be generated by our interpretation of NOOKA’s product image. Sustainability was considered during the creative process to reiterate NOOKA’s identity for pushing beyond the expected limits of design. The establishment is located in an unused urban lot situated between two existing 19th century buildings that are both 35 feet in height. The empty lot is 17 feet wide and 100 feet deep with one end facing north and the other facing south. The height of the building could not exceed 50 feet.

NOOKA’s perspective of interaction (below) is expressed in my design by creating an interactive setting for customers, employees, products and passersby.

“The alternative approach to everyday objects present in NOOKA’s designs triggers thoughts of new possibilities and a questioning of our surroundings. NOOKA products change the brain states of anyone they come into contact with by presenting alternatives to accepted norms in visual and physical communication between people and their world.”

INTRODUCTION

My concept is about connecting open spaces to establish multiple sight lines and vantage points creating an active indoor to outdoor environment. The intention is to pull potential customers into the building’s domain to increase chance encounters and to encourage dialogue between customers and products. In working with my concept, my design will also maximize daylight penetration into the building in order to expose the products in their true color - the way they were intended to be seen. This flagship store will act as something more than just another store and will embody NOOKA’s philosophy and aesthetic.
