project 1.1

Composition & Transformation INTRODUCTION: Composition and transformation is an introductory project to the concept of figure and ground, or positive and negative space in form. This concept is to be investigated in both two dimensions and three dimensions. The goal of this five weeks long design exercise is to further our thinking in design, while getting accustomed to the studio environment. The project is organized in two parts. The first two weeks are to develop a series of compositions on paper, and the last three weeks are to design in three dimensions through model making. The project begins with a list of given word pairings as inspirations to guide the concept.

COMPOSITION Formalized two dimensional compositions developed from sketches. Each panel developed from sketches was based on the originality of the concept and legibility of each series in reading. Panels are 8” x 8”, made with black paper on white background. The consideration for layout placed equal importance on the relationship from one panel to the next, as well as the composition of each panel individually. The transformation from linear to circular was investigated with two different approaches, and is also the basis for the next step of the process.

Preliminary Sketches

motion - stillness

divergence - convergence

linear - circular

linear - circular

ITERATION 1 - SOLID The first step of the three dimensional translation was based on the selected composition due to its unambiguous form. The design added another element of structure to the original composition.

ITERATION 2 - VOID Using the first iteration as a reference in form and scale, the negative space was constructed with the same structural idea in mind while creating a void of the previous design. However, each individual layer doesn’t connect in forming a solid geometry, as a way to further the idea of transformation in motion by activating the viewer’s imagination to complete each layer.

08 / 1.1 design studio


ITERATION 3 VOID The system forming the void space progresses in the final iteration of the series by strengthening its structural support. The most external layers now provide stability through their connection. The inner most layers becomes static. The dimensions were modified to increase the clarity of the circle in void.

project 1.2

Thresholds & Occupiable Space

INTRODUCTION: To define a space is to create a separation of one space from another. The separation can create a relationship between the spaces and give each space its own distinction. The difference is made by purpose. The goal of this project is to design two spaces, one space for gathering, and another for solitude. The separation between the two spaces is created by a threshold. The threshold is to provide a transition, and also to create a relationship between gathering and solitude.

The design begins with the concept of appearing and disappearing. Starting with two squared shaped “rooms”, the design focused on the use of scale and light to create the separation and the experience of transition by the threshold to clearly contrast the two spaces in its purpose. This project is a conceptual exercise to design architectural elements without program, material or structural considerations.

THRESHOLD

TRANSITION

A series of study models exploring the transition between a space for gathering and a space for solitude. The study was focused on the use of light, scale, and openness to each space. The first part of the series made use of massing models to study the overall relationships, and then a series of spatial studies were done to form each space.

The study of transition in perspective is to further the investigation of each design element in more detail. The horizontal and vertical changes guide the carefully coordinated transitioning experience. Light introduces another element of openness and privacy.

1.2 design studio / 11


THRESHOLD The threshold is a narrow path offset from the gathering spaces. Without light, the threshold is invisible from the main gathering space, giving a sense of discovery to the overall experience.

12 / 1.2 design studio


FINAL DESIGN Based on the concept of appearing and disappearing, the last design of the project combined all design elements from the previous studies. The gathering space defines two connecting rectangular geometry. The larger geometry serves as the main gather space, and the smaller geometry as the secondary gathering space and also serves as a transition space to the threshold and solitude space.

Openings above allow light into the space on all corners and the center of the space, giving both geometry equal amount of attention. The exterior form is an additional element added to the overall design. The goal is to use the exterior to inform the viewer of the interior experience and layout.

project 1.3

Ceremonial Space INTRODUCTION: A ceremonial space is the setting for what is traditionally considered a highly ritualized experience. While it can be formal or informal, or a private or public affair, the end user will find a ceremonial space is designed for a mentally personal event regardless of the number of users at any given time. The ritual of going to the gym is about taking time for one’s self. It’s about caring, challenging, and progressing one’s self. Designing for such a ritual provided an opportunity to analyze and the human transition that needs to take place, as well

as to set-up a progression of transitions to aid in creating an atmosphere for said ritual. The ceremonial space is nestled between the Boston Public Library and Lord & Taylor on Boylston Street in the Back Bay neighborhood. Moving from such a busy area of town into what is to be a place for personal development required slowing down the user via circulation transitions so the user may mentally prepare for their ritual.

SITE In reaction to the existing site, the structure became a landmark that stands out against the local conditions in order to parallel with the idea that this space is a place to challenge and advance the user’s general life experience. Having such an angular design resolution, allowed users to remain motivated and excited, while clean lines and smooth surfaces made for a clear mind and a no-fuss atmosphere.

USER EXPERIENCE As the user enters the site, they are sheltered by an overhang, which creates a level of intimacy, contrasting from a more open and hostile environment of the street. They become enclosed as they enter the space and a series of more intimate but layered spaces unfold with generous framed views of the exterior environment and the cityscape. Space is provided not only for the physical exertion of a workout, but also for rest and reflection. An upper level sanctuary and roof garden allow users to recover above the street level to find a more peaceful atmosphere.

sketch problem 1 day duration spring 2009 instructor - Ian Taberner 18 / 1.4 design studio

INTRODUCTION: Sketch problem is a one day design intensive workshop organized once every term. A program was given along with a set of specific design parameters. The project is to design an all seasons retreat for a writer/ musician who is a scholar of the famous author and philosopher Henry David Thoreau. The cabin is a contemporary interpretation of Thoreau’s wood cabin which inspired his writing of his best known book “Walden”. The site is a remote location in the woods with a 15% hill and a maximum footprint of 15’ x 10’. An added consideration to the design was to incorporate sustainable elements for the cabin to be completely energy independent, while serving the daily needs of its resident.

INTRODUCTION: The first project of the B-level studio is a research & diagrammatic exercise of a selected building. The goal is to develop a series of studies as a way to understand a residential building from the beginning of the 20th century. Le Maison de Verre is an early modern building completed in 1932. The design of the house emphasized three primary traits: honesty of the materials, variable transparency of forms, and the juxtaposition of industrial fixtures in a traditional home. The house is completed with the collaboration of the furniture and interior designer Pierre Chareau, a Dutch architect Bernard Bijvoet, and a metal craftsman Louis Dalbet. Designed for Annie Dalsace and her husband Dr. Jean Dalsace, the house had a unique program requirement which served the accommodation of the the household as well as for the patients of Dr.Dalsace in his medical practice.

Le Maison de Verre is a modern interpretation of the traditional architectural elements of a Parisian home. The introduction of industrial material displays a level boldness in its experimental qualities. The three dimensional arrangements of its spaces are specific to the needs of the client. The building comprises of a servants’ quarter, the

doctor’s practice, and the residence. With a clear separation between public and private spaces, the three areas of the house function uninterrupted with each other, while careful connections are made between the three areas.

project 1.6

The Charles River Esplanade is a river front park located between Boston and Cambridge, near the end of this 80 miles long river before reaching the Atlantic Ocean. Distant from the city and free from high rise, the sky opens above to panoramic views of both cities’ skylines. The design of what is to be the 20th boat house along the Charles River will be placed on the esplanade. Design consideration placed equal importance for both the function of the space as well as response to the site elements.

Located between two major cities, the esplanade brings a unique experience to an urban setting. The park receives millions of visitors every year. The design is to provide equal amount of space to the users of the facility as well as to park visitors. Rather than placing an alarming building on the existing landscape, the boathouse enters the site discreetly as an extension of the park to the river free from all visual obstructions.

SITE The park is a transition between the congested city skylines and the open air above the Charles. The suffocation from towering buildings and hostile vehicular traffic melt away, and is replaced by a sense of peace and relaxation. This effect is noticeably shared among the guests of the park. A sense of community appears here which is uncommon just two blocks away.

Hostel INTRODUCTION: The Hostel is designed to accommodate the needs of 12 travelers for overnight rest. Program requirement include bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, mechanical room, a place for gathering, and a space for planning. Strong emphasis was placed on response to site and sustainability considerations. The challenge is to allow openings for natural lighting into the space without giving up privacy and receiving interruptions from the busy surroundings. Building elements included roof installed PV panels, rain water recycling, and solar heating with the use of south facing masonry walls.

Tectonic Strategies B2 DESIGN STUDIO 15 WEEKS duration spring 2011 instructor - CHRIS JOHNS

34 / 1.8 design studio

Tectonic is the “building” in “architecture”. The B-2 studio is a semester long process of learning and developing a system of construction, to design a system of logic in construction and define relationship between elements which create structure. The construction system is developed through three projects. The first project is an abstract exercise of system design. The idea is to design a kit of parts which eventually becomes a structure. The second project is a continuation of the first project with a given site. The developed system from project 1 is to be redefined in order to respond to its site surroundings. Project 3 is to join the designs from project 1 and 2 to continue the development of the construction system to serve the functions of a building program.

alternative strategies PROJECT 1 : TECTONIC DEVELOPMENT Rather than exploring complexity, the initial development focused on a simple joining method which has the potential to become a flexible system that will serve the complex of program requirement. The first strategy is to design a skin, or an outside layer at various scales. The secondary system is a structural frame that will serve as a supportive layer.

PROJECT 2 : APPARATUS ON A SLOPE Arnold Arboretum is the oldest public arboretum in North America. It’s located in the south west border of Boston, and operated by Harvard University as both a public park as well as a facility for the education and research of plant biodiversity. The design is a small but completely open space at the arboretum’s highest elevation. The minimum program requirement consists of an office for the staff, an educational space that can also serve as an exhibition space, and a utility room. Surrounding greenery is an exhibition itself throughout the park. The design takes

a transparent approach and begins with the process of arranging a path to approach a subtle structure that will blend in with its environment. A series of three gates are placed along with three open landings and provide a space to rest for the visitors as well as an opportunity for the arboretum to increase its tree species collection. The structure is located at the end of this path. The constant shift of the vertical and horizontal dimensions brings a sense of expansion and compression along the gates to the structure. The experience is enhanced as one travels to the top of the highest elevation.

INITIAL SKETCH

PROJECT 3:URBAN CULTURAL CENTER In Boston’s southeastern corner of downtown resides the city’s Chinatown district. The area has passed many hands over the years and once served as the city’s garment and leather district. The area has since been filled with small restaurants, shops, and businesses. What was once a bustling manufacturing district, is now a run-down and poorly maintained. In desperate need of something that will encourage Chinatown’s rehabilitation, an urban cultural center would promote the local identity of the neighborhood, as well as encouraging visitors and residents to matriculate and circulate the area. In an attempt to open up a relatively private neighborhood, the center would redirect the

entry into the community by inviting a greater diversity of patrons while maintaining the local design language. Tectonics were carefully studied at three scales to create a kit of joinery that would each play a significant role in the center’s structural design and space creation. While this space is for community gathering, the program also includes a highly versatile black-box theater that can serve as a space for performance, events, ceremonies, etc. throughout the year, which can provide income for the community. Providing this cultural experience as well as a way to source income for the community drives a way to reinvigorate a neglected neighborhood.

Campus Master Plan

PROJECT BRIEF: To design a master plan for an ecologically conscious design and build school means placing a great amount of importance on the land and its natural systems. As the popularity of the school grew over time, the need for expansion Of its current campus is more necessary than ever before. The lead architect John Boecker takes a principles based approach to his design. He designed some of the first LEED certified buildings in the country. His design for the school focuses on the rehabilitation of the land natural ecosystem prior to human activities. As a result, the master plan drawing placed equal importance on the visual representation of the landscaped design with its architectural elements.

This architectural play structure fosters children’s creativity and self-direction through physical and cognitive interaction. Rather than replicating figurative notions of “house,” this play structure departs from traditional playhouse designs by providing a dynamic framework for imagination. Its wood slats filter light and create a rich spatial interior that allows passage over, under, and through its various levels. A perfect place for learning, growing, and discovering, cubePLAY exposes children to the value of design through lively hands-on interaction. 2fold is part of the cubePLAY series as a entry for the Dwell Playhaus competition.

Hayden PROJECT BRIEF:

architectural project 10 weeks duration spring 2012 cube design & research task - construction documentation 52 / 2.3 professional work

The Hayden Building is a significant national historic landmark built in 1875 and designed by Henry Hobson Richardson, the renowned 19th century architect of Trinity Church in Copley Square. Constructed of rough-cut brownstone, the building exemplifies Richardson’s use of the Romanesque Revival style for commercial buildings. The Hayden Building’s large rhythmic window openings and heavy stone façade changed how large buildings where designed in the 19th century and became the façade blueprint for the first skyscrapers. It is Richardson’s last remaining commercial building in Boston. The project consists of the rehabilitation and conversion of the Hayden Building from a five-story office building to multifamily housing with ground floor retail. The narrow Hayden floor plates present unique challenges to the housing program; yet, the massive masonry walls and multiplicity of windows provide ample natural light and distinctive design opportunities. Acknowledging the ‘edges’ as the dominant feature of Richardson’s building, the exterior walls are accentuated and thickened with ancillary program features; thus, prompting the residents to engage with Richardson’s re-purposed brownstone facade.

PROJECT BRIEF : After relocating the CUBE Design & Research office from the Boston Waterfront to Chinatown, they wanted a unique way to inform former clients and the Chinatown community of the new office location. Rather than designing a formal business postcard, the approach was to design a graphic layout that will hold people’s interest. Inspired by the history of Chinatown as the red light district, also known as the Combat Zone, the postcard design begins with the graphic style of a 70’s grindhouse movie poster.

As the amount of work grew in the practice, time investment in office management becomes more chellenging. The large south facing windows without shading causes glare and is an ongoing issue of our daily working lives. When the time finally became available, addressing the office shading issue was on top of the list. But what is an architectural design office without putting our own signature on the product we buy. The window shading issue presented an opportunity to showcase the office to the new neighborhood. The design brings clarity to the ambiguity of multi-store buildings.

Office Park PROJECT BRIEF: The proposed office building development includes a five story tower and above grade parking garage which creates a central courtyard as the focal point. A series of raised planters and stepped amphitheater create a pedestrian scale entry sequence, outdoor cafĂŠ terrace and vehicular dropoff area. A hierarchy of native plantings provide careful layering and scaling of the space while the perimeter landscape connects the site to the naturalized context. On-site stormwater management techniques are applied to improve water quality, increase infiltration, and reduce runoff.

PROJECT BRIEF: After one year of setting up the office, Studio 2112’s website was in need for an update with the most recent projects. After some study of the existing web page, it was clear that instead of an update, the studio needed a fresh look that best represent the design beliefs and philosophy of the practice. The design of the site takes a minimalist approach to present Studio 2112 in a clear and straightforward manner.

Duxbury Residence PROJECT BRIEF:

landscape architecture project

The goal of this new beach house was to restore a native ecological condition to a site currently consisting of manicured lawn, nonnative vegetation, and a large swimming pool. An existing eroding dune will be restored while native dune vegetation is planted to secure the grade and anchor the structure within the landscape. A brackish rain garden accommodates site stormwater and periodic beach overwash through grading and salt tolerant plant material. The remaining landscape will be planted as native meadow with woodland vegetation. Circulation is defined through boardwalks, mown grass paths, and a formal gravel driveway. Formal flowers and residential plantings are kept adjacent to the main entry creating a contrast with the adjacent native material enriching the experience of the site.
