Inspiration


Concept

Oldtown / Chinatown has a rich history developed by many different groups of peoples. No one group, race, or nationality of people alone can represent the nature of this place. The essence of this area requires the support of every combined influence brought upon it by various different peoples over the course of time to adequately portray its story. So too, my proposal for the Chinatown Cultural Center conveys this need for all peoples to join together in support of their community. Every nationality is expressed through an architectonic ribbon with the language of the given nationality prominently enscribed upon it. These ribbons flow from the sidewalk bordering Burnside and climb up and over the site to create a framework for the programatic spaces of the center. In doing so, these ribbons not only supply th center with structural support, but also mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems support. One ribbon alone would not be able to support the cultural center in this manner; it requires a consolidated effort by all of the ribbons to achieve this end, just as Oldtown /Chinatown requires the input of several different peoples to adequately protray its history.

Urban Plan

Ribbons of coarse stone paving material shall be laid down at the intersection of Burnside Street and 4th Avenue running North to South as a visual indicator of Chinatown’s entry whilst at the same time providing a full-intersection crosswalk to aid pedestrians in crossing this busy artery. Similar application of paving ribbons will reappear throughout the various intersections in Chinatown to act as a unifying agent for the district. Also sidewalks on Burnside around the Chinatown entrance will be expanded allowing for onstreet parallel parking.


The physical massing of these paving ribbons will then reassert themselves in a transverse application of carving out mass. Alleyways will be created within new developments in the area as well as excavated from existing blocks. The purpose of creating these alleyways is to provide ample space for small pop-up shops with extremely low rents. The hope here is that these spaces will attract immigrant communities looking to open up small businesses. Of course, one would have to account for the obvious dangers that alleyways produce by providing ample lighting and security measures. Gates may be situated at the ends of all alleys so that these areas can be closed off from the public when not in use. With any luck, these alleys will evolve to take on an atmospheric quality comparable to that of similar instances shown to the left.

This design manifested itself out of an evolutionary process starting from the macro scale and continuing through the project to the micro detail level. The original application of a series of ribbons across both the project site and surrounding context was born out of a concern for the automotive dominated presence of Burnside Street. The ribbons, running perpendicular to traffic flow on Burnside, were meant to abstractly represent a visual slowing of the traffic and guiding of

the eye into Chinatown itself. From here. I started investigating a three dimensional manipulation of these ribbons to shape the space above, below, and around them. Identifying these ribbons herein as a framework for the building (as was described in the concept statement) I arranged the programmatic spaces in volumes spanning from one wall of the ribbon frame to the other. In this way the ribbons are able to envelope each space and provide for it.

Ribbon System Detail


The ribbon system detail shown to the right is a cut-away segment of one of the architectonic ribbons shown in the exterior perspective on the right. The bubbling membranes flanking the ribbon detail are a glazing alternative known as ETFE (Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene). Structural columns along with mechanical, electrical, and plumbing services are run through these ribbons. Shown in the detail is an instance where a pneumatic pump feeding the ETFE cushions is supported and accompanied by electrical conduit running up and down as well as lighting fixtures to illuminate the text cut into the exterior casing.

Solar Shading

Southern & Horizontal Exposure: Overlapping frit patterns printed on different layers of the ETFE cushions can be pneumatically controlled to let varying levels of light into the interior. Western Exposure: On lower levels where direct light is not an issue due to contextual shading, interior blinds are provided to manually adjust light transmission. On higher levels, light is allowed to penetrate into the interior but is bounced off of wooden panels before entering programmatic areas (shown in diagram).

Clerestory Glazing Insulated HVAC Ducts

Passive Ventilation Operable Windows at lower levels allow air into areas on the western and southern perimeter. These spaces have a clear vertical climb providing the ideal space to harness stack-effect ventilation. Direct sunlight heats interior elements and warms the air within so that it is propelled upward to operable vents on the roof

Rainwater Management An extensive green roof resides between the architectonic ribbons on the roof. Rainwater is passed through these natural filters and then run through the ribbons to cisterns located at the base of some of those ribbons for later use in the building.
