Spring Semester 2016 In Transit: Safe Spaces in Crisis Contexts Instructors HĂĽvard Breivik Tone Selmer Olsen
This project presents a new form of urban planning, focusing on refugee integration as an opportunity for revitalizing cities. With the increasing number of refugees and asylum seekers fleeing conflicts and seeking sanctuary in urban areas, thereâ€™s a great opportunity for host communities to better benefit from the assets that refugees bring to their cities. With this project I am aiming to turn the under-utilised spatial potential of cities into economic and social incubators within the existing urban fabric.

Common Grounds Individual work
To showcase the potential of this approach, I have chosen to work with an area in Athens: the Karameikos-Metaxourgeio district. This area represents a challenge that many European cities are currently facing: a decrease in population numbers and consequently a lack of human and financial resources. Today, 46% of the urban spaces in the KarameikosMetaxourgeio district are currently not occupied or used in any other ways. The project is about creating a new common ground, a space for social interactions enabling cultural integration through a shared public space. It is also with the creation

and implementation of a new housing typology, an evolutive system where the maximization of the common and small private spaces that this community oriented living is generated.
Due to a simple and smart steel scaffolding structure, this generic system can be implemented in various sensitive context, in urban settings as well as in isolated areas. The structure is not particularly innovative but economical and easy to deploy and disassemble. With the use of simple standardized element to create the structure and define the aesthetic of the buildings, elements that are normally considered as temporary and purely functional gain a certain value. With this new construction system, the construction process becomes intimately linked with the life within the building. Once the construction is over, the

0012 structure put in place becomes a canvas for appropriation to its residents, the scaffoldings are the extension of the units to the outside public life, a buffer zone that they can share with their newly created community. Through community programming, the common ground created around and within the structures become a new public layer within the existing urban fabric, linking building typology and urban morphology. It’s a catalyst to start provoking social changes, where a new type of local community living integrates the local population and refugee’s needs. The new housing typology created forms an informal type of planning, opening the regular Athenian grid from within and meant to change habits and interactions between its inhabitants.
BUILDING TYPE 3
The differentiation that can be made between the new structures and the existing buildings around. Those light and simple structures whose aesthetic is based purely on functional and structural concerns become the new face of the city’s renewal, a new beacon of an era where students, elderly, professionals and family can share and cohabit in a flexible and welcoming environment propitious for new encounters and dynamics.

Shaping Landscape Wing Hang Winza CHOI Paul-Antoine LUCAS
This project investigates the creation of landscape identity, as stated in Emerging Landscapes (Routledge, 2014), landscape as a â€œcultural construct to give meaning to our environment symbolically and in the imagination in the way that these shapings are expressed and inscribed through diverse forms of creative practiceâ€?. This definition of the notion of landscape raises for us the ambiguity of the discipline perspective of the definition, where landscape can be seen through either a scientific or artistic scope. Because of the cultural rootedness of the word, real and imagined landscapes are often inseparable in the

collective imaginary and introduces the discussion of the notion of landscape and territory as constructed speeches. To what extent does our perception of the Landscape have to do with our knowledge about it? Tropical and Andean landscapes are often fantasized and idealized through representation. The effect that the representation of the landscape has on the shaping of the collective imaginary is undeniable. As the title of the project Shaping Landscape states, we touch upon the invention and re-invention of the landscape through visualization. Due to a lack of representation and study of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountain over the past 70 years, there is no cultural construct in the collective imaginary other than general preconceived visions of tropical montane landscape. We saw through this project an
opportunity to fill this hole and build up the Sierra’s identity, in some ways, shape the landscape. Our approach to Landscape study relies on the idea that the context has to be described and conceptualized as an architectonic object, a sort of “autonomous form of architecture” to build this new identity. The first part of the project is research-based and focuses on data collection and visualization as illustration of findings but also as design tools. We are placing ourselves as generalist experts – not unlike some explorers before us – depicting a newly discovered landscape. Through surveying and charting the territory of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta

(SNSM), we want to extract manifest landscape concepts and frame our research into design resources. The maps created do not necessarily represent material according to objectives but more as strategies to define the design objectives. The research illustrates the landscapeâ€™s inherent idioms that we want to convey in its visualization, such as an accidental topography, a hardly legible landscape morphology and the complexity and diversity of the elements constituting it. Through this process, we intend to set a base for future designs, the drawings become instruments appearing synoptic and informative, the detailed indexical properties specific to maps, charts and surveying documents seemingly objective intend here

to communicate our vision. This work is about the challenges that come into play when trying to measure and grid a landscape. In the second part of the project, we look at how abstraction and interpretation of the data can constitute a project where the context becomes the content. The design of landscapes can become a tool of communication and further influences the perception of the identity of the mountain in the collective imaginary. The building of the identity of the mountain becomes the design where the visual reduction of the landscape through images is used to subjectivise the normative codes of the more â€œobjectiveâ€? drawings of the first phase. The collages state our perception of the identity Figueroa 2880 m

of the territory, the representation is both visualization and reality. We try to play with vision as the dominant mode of encountering and understanding landscape with the creation of reconstructed realities, fragments that shape the overall identity. The use of photograph-like documents makes the reading of the landscape more accessible, they nonetheless remain informative documents that are here to facilitate the construction of a new understanding of the landscape. The technique used defines an attempt to shape a landscape, a constructed reality of a place through particular interpretations of its properties ordering the ways

things are and their proportions. Those drawings are aesthetic appreciation underlining the importance of a narrative in the reading of the landscape. In this Anthropocene era, landscape architects and designers are privileged mediators of landscape, renewing our understanding of landscape. The Sierra Nevada being one of the last “untouched” and under represented areas left in the World, with this exercise, we try to envision and influence how landscape architecture can prepare for and even help guide the landscape’s future in terms of either design, preservation, vision or simply future studies.
Spring Semester 2014 Pour des lieux dâ€™apprentissage innovants Instructor Sandra Planchez
The key element of our project was to create an eco-friendly primary school that offers security and comfort to students as well as a place partially open to the public, becoming a part of the urban landscape. In order to do so, we exploited the image of a ribbon resting slightly on the ground and folding out towards the lower part of the site. A concrete flight of stairs cuts the building into two parts and creates the links betweent the upper part of the site and the lower part of the
site. This staircase that we called “amphitheatre” would be as much a part of the school as a part of the city, as a public commuting place. The orientation of the façades follows the daily sun path in order to take advantage of the natural daylight for the lighting and the production of energy (thanks to solar panels placed on the brisesoleils). With the implantation of the site in the slope, the impact of the building is minimized, only 6% of the natural topography is excavated for the foundations.

natural zenithal lighting in the classrooms. At the same time, since each classroom has a large glazed facade, brise-soleils are placed on the souther faรงades to control the flow of direct sunlight coming in the building. The latter are covered in vertical solar panels in order to use the surface directly south oriented to produce energy for the building. The threshold created by the balcony/terrace space along the classroom is a way to create a setback protecting from the sun in summer but allows for the sun to come in during winter thanks to the large window openings.The double oriented classrooms, with the help of the pitched roof create an efficient naturally ventilated space. Finally, the green roof is here to minimize the thermic effect, serves as an insulation layer to keep the building fresh at all times.

Spread in between the classrooms are the rooms destined to be accessed freely by all the students such as the multimedia room, cafeteria, gym, library, etc. those spaces have a double light to bring light in the building and into the classes thanks to their glazed facades.
Aligned in rows of 4 and spread on two floors, they can communicate between each others thanks to sliding doors allowing for teachers to reunite classes for some of the lectures of for workshops.
At the top of the slope, the playground gradually goes down the topography in order to follow the natural site. The stairs accesses to the common rooms and the classrooms on the first level are situated in between the latter.
Creating the link between the school and the city, this walkway / playground can be appropriated by the students during the working hours and by the public when the school closes which gives it the potential to be a central point of the cityâ€™s life.
Fall Semester 2013 Building Lands, Landing Buildings Instructor Olivier Ottaevere
Based on a conceptual formal approach to architecture, this design project started from a precedent case study of Toyo Itoâ€™s Tama Art University Library introducing to me the notion of reinvention of an element which I decided to pursue and experiment: the Arch. Starting from the structural integration of the arch as an outside structure to an organizational structural element of the building itself. The work process has been made through iteration and material testing as can be seen on the material shown hereafter.
The Arches experiment Safina So Kiu Yin Paul-Antoine LUCAS
SELECTED WORK The formwork experimentation was an idea aiming at fully experimenting 3-dimensionally the materiality of the vault. Playing with variable parameters and using both computationnal tools and physical ones so as to construct a reflexion. The idea was to experiment through various stages the evolution of an idea linking a spatial experiment and a physical experiment. Starting from diagrams and arches study, I had to build up physical and numeric models to think about the integration spatially and structurally of the arches in a building as a component creating intriguing situationg and an innovative organization. Going back and forth between a physical approach and a virtual approach was a way for me to think about the actual building of the final project. Thinking about how the final model would be built made me think about how the building would eventually be errected. Using a repeptitive pattern in terms of geometry was a way to rationalize the final realization and not have to make a new formwork for each piece. Hence the decision to keep a certain base for further developments. After having chosen a grid to orient the different floors according to the sun path, the shape of the vaults were still to be determined. Not willing to use a simple vaulted slab, I wanted to link the different floors, which is why I chose to give an other dimension using double-sided vaults, meaning that the vaults would alternate between catenary ones and inverted catenary ones

because this option seemed to be the only one optimizing the living space of the vault. Having fixed the pattern followed by the curve, the geometry of the latter the range of orientations appeared topostitioning be uninhabitable because of the waste of space created by the curve of the vault. Which is why I opted for a serrated slab functionning like a vault. Using double-sided vaults and organizing the duplexes so stack the two layers on 2 levels that they are still double-oriented 03/ was a challenge. To solve the problem, the building ended up alternating double-height double sided vaults and regular double sided vaults. For the last part of the project, the experiment conducted so far had to be confronted to an ideal site with a curved slope. One of the problem I had to face was the integration of a vertical circulation without & PARAMETERS damaging the geometry already in place whic is why I placed the circulation space directly carving the natural topography of the site on the Northern façade. And the accesses to the building were defined by the ground levels on the groundfloor and on an intermediate floor and radial lines within the designated range define a square bounded by the 2 sets of radial lines dedicating those floor to public use symbolized on the façade with double-height vaults.

The use of geometrically rationalized vaults was also a way to reinforce the structure. Indeed the pre-casted self-supporting vaults can easily be vertically stacked and the horizontal sufaces would then allow for the slabs to be attached to one another. This is what was verified with the realization of concrete casts of various slabs of the buildings for the final model but unfortunately I to correctly do the formworks due to the thinness of the slab at 1/50 scale. Which is why I ended up making a cardboard model of the final project.
August 2016 Iceland Trekking Cabin Competition Beebreeders
The Lighthouse trekking cabin settles as a landmark on Iceland’s various natural grounds, untouched by human hands, becoming a new icon for Iceland’s unique landscape. Its shape comes from the image of a house put upsidedown, as an allegory to its first principle: the minimal impact on the site it settles in. The minimal size of the foot is thus designed to be adaptable to any type of grounds. This minimal impact is applied spatially, structurally and energetically to the diverse aspects of the project. In order to reduce the impact on the site and optimize the space vertically, the lighthouse cabin rises up on 6 stories. Each one has its own single function, allowing 10 guests to live comfortably for a week.

0052 The dimensions of the cabin are set on the basic module of a single bed (90x210cm). A space is then created around the center, rhythmed by the structural grid and containing built-in furniture. These furniture modules each corresponds to one function and are placed in-between the structural columns. This minimal impact is applied both structurally and energetically. Structurally, the minimal size of the foot is designed to be adaptable to any type of grounds. The main structure is made of aluminium, a local material that is 100% recyclable. Energetically, the
building does not depend on any geothermal or hydroelectric network. That means it is totally independent from the ground it lands on. Electricity is supplied by a rapeseed oil cogonerator and by solar panels. Water is supplied by rainwater from a purificator connected to a water tank. Organic waste and used water are recycled. All these technical facilities are located in the foot of the building. As a landmark, the vertical tower showcases the bigness and the curves of the natural landscapes, and blends in them as the facade reflects the surroundings.

CONCEPT The building manifests itself by a series of interlocked floors organized around a common staircase vertically distributing the various rooms. The private living spaces for the residence are facing the street with a balcony and a closable perforated aluminum façade. The common units, the study, the living room and the garden are the common rooms facing the back of the plot. The ground floor of the building is the dining room, kitchen and common space for the residents. But it is also in some ways an extension of the public realm of the Chome, it is a multipurpose shop front for workshops, an occasional Izakaya (typical Japanese restaurant) or even a convenience store. The groundfloor is situated
one meter underground, giving the passerby the impression to penetrate the private sphere of the residence, creating a sense of “home”, but still giving the feeling of being in the street, surrounded by glazed facades.The transparency within the building is everywhere, there are no walls, only polycarbonate and glass partitions, the mesh curtains and the concrete central staircase are the only elements obstructing the view. I wanted the people living in there to have to cohabit, not only live in the same building. There are no private entrances and little space to actually isolate yourself. Besides, the store on the groundfloor is providing services offered by the inhabitants, wether it is homecooked meals, homework help, handyman work or just selling products depending on the skills or time each has on its hands. The place is also available for the local community of the neighborhood on demand for parties, meetings, presentations or more informal gatherings. SOCIAL INFILL This project aims at revisiting Yoshihau Tsukamoto’s idea of the commersidence. Sheahausu aims at being a new community link within an urban chaos, in opposition with an increasing individualism in the Japanese society. It would be a test project for further implementation

0056 throughout the city as a new typology of housing seeking for a new appreciation of community, sociability and the cultivation of practical skills. A bottom-up incubator project like this in the heart of Omotesando could have great impact on the social life of the neighborhood. THE EXPANSION OF THE UCHI This building associates within itself the Japanese concept of “Uchi” (“inside”) and “Soto” (“outside”) associating the sense of the self and the rest, here, the public realm. Here, the house, Uchi is made for the individual as well as its close community, the neighborhood. The shop on the ground floor becomes an everyday commodity for the resident of the Chome and the passersby. The implementation of this project is seen here as a means to help the community regain a certain autonomy and give a new opportunity for the neighborhood to bloom. PROGRAM With the decreasing size of housing, many functions that traditionally took place inside the safe real of the home have been moved outside, this could be the place for those to happen. As the Izakaya is one of the preferred place for groups of friends to meet, this place would allow for people to feel as comfortable as they would in their own home. The use of the structure of a shophouse sets for an intimate stage and allows for inclusive activities. Perhaps those spaces can be the starting point for the Renaissance of a new kind of commerce, where small businesses, personal shopping,
one’s living environments, and the local neighborhood can intertwine. A NEW FAMILY UNIT Even though it is quite uncommon in Japan to live with non-family, it is only about time before new living unit types emerge with the emergence of housing for single working man/ woman and the abundance of individual homes. This project is the merging of different people representing the contemporary situation of cities like Tokyo, and its intrinsic social fragmentation. Nowadays, most of single person households are bought by women in their 30s/40s. At the same time, elderly people for most of them leave alone and students pay for overpriced tiny accommodations in the center, lacking real living qualities. Which is why I wanted an accommodation for 3 strangers representing the archetype of people living alone in Tokyo, A STUDENT, AN ELDERLY PERSON AND A SINGLE WOMAN. This building embodies the potential for such a unit to become a micro community, a supporting island within the greater system. Moreover, in some ways, everyone always needs something, and everyone has plenty to offer. With the flexibility of the programming of the ground floor of the building, this gives the opportunity to adapt to the population the building contains at a given time.

“Tokyo was, as I remember it, a calm city that had a charm that came from an easy and routine based life. This was Tokyo where we used to pass our time chatting, seated on the entrance steps, encouraging neighbours to come in and share a glass of ice tea. Our Seinom (front door) was always open.” “Empowerment occurs when people regain the sense that their actions and opinions matter and that they have the power to influence things in society which they deem to be important.” “There are no apparent social interactions between tenants. Although the building structure is shared, nothing else is: there is no shared entrance, no hallway, no doorman, no meetings and no noise. There is a great sense of disconnect between individuals’ private worlds and the rest of the city’s inhabitants.”

This project consists in the development of a pavilion illustrating the need for informal, self-sustained green areas within cities. One of the issues of big parks in cities is that they require maintenance and care, this “urban station” would be an alternative to the implementation of parks in cities. Space in contemporary cities is becoming increasingly hard to find, the insertion of small “park-like” structure like this one throughout the urban fabric would be a good way to bring greenery in densely built area.
DROP OF GREEN is a structure that contains fog harvesting mesh columns, allowing for the plants to be watered in any climatic context. The meshes of those columns capture humidity and fog, accelerate the fall of the water droplets towards the ground thanks to their closely knit webs. Moreover, those stations are not only meant for urban farming or bringing more greenery to cities, it is also a new form of social space. In fact, the platforms of the structures allow for people to climb on it and isolate themselves from the outside environment, meet or simply relax. The idea with those elevated platforms was to invite people in those green houses, the transparency of the material chosen for the pavilion is to emphasize the feeling of immersion in the green space, you become surrounded by the growing plants. The curtain facades enable the users to isolate themselves more from the surrounding environment, whereas the see-through meshes impose the permeability of the stations. We would want to create iterations of those structures according to different contexts or different uses with the development of systems adapted to various materials (for instance, the structure could be either in bamboo/metal or wood) or functions (flower greenhouses, urban farming, etc.). Another idea with the creation of an open-source design is to design different sizes for those station, a down-sized version of this pavilion could become a bus-stop or simply urban furniture.

Overlooking the valley stands this folded surface, directing the visitorâ€™s look towards the North to the rice fields. Through the central narrow entrance, the visitor gets a glimpse of the landscape surrounding the site. The steps around the entrance form an amphiteatre, facing the Schoolâ€™s playground, offering new opportunites for the children to meet and express themselves whereas it is through performances or simply during an intimate conversation at the top of the steps. Once the visitor steps inside, the complexity of the building reveals itself. The grand Wood columns support the folded pitched roofs, as an invitation to seat underneath it, to share a meal or take a book from underneath the benches. The roofs open up towards the exterior, on the NorthEast side giving a comfortable lighting and atmosphere all year round.

When you first learn about objects, you start learning shapes, simple geometry. Children learn to draw by tracing squares, circles, triangles and using all the bright and joyful colours they can find. That is what this project is all about. In some ways, this pavilion is transmitting this idea of simplicity in three dimensions, with a sphere, a cube and a pyramid. Naive, maybe? Ideal, probably. Playful, definitely! Each of those volumes in architecture often implies specific materialities, materialities that are the easiest way to be truthful to its geometry. Which is why the sphere becomes an inflatable balloon, the pyramid a simple plywood assembly and the cube a steel frame. But first and foremost, this pavilion is about basic geometric forms, merging together, colliding to become this lightweight structure. A simple geometry, the purity of primitive forms.

Climax Competition Maison de lâ€™Architecture The project is meant to be on Place Madeleine Braun, in Paris. The main intention if this project is to create a new public space typology, linking circulation and sustainable energies. The main axis of the project are formed by the main circulation axis of the square, the pedestrian accesses, facilitating the circulation between the main poles of the square : The Architecture Institute and Paris East train station. The project is an exploded pavilion made of re-used materials with a central focal point where the pedestrian flows create energy. The axis create the four parts of the pavilion, each corresponding to a theme for the sustainable city : GROW, EAT, LEARN, PLAY, EXERCISE, REST (production, consumption, leisure, sports, pleasure). Raising awareness is also an important element of the installation. Circular Economy is the last element, the use of available manufactured products like the scaffoldings or re-use old shutters for the cladding which means that no elements need to be manufactured for the construction. It provides also cost-efficiency.

February 2016 A house without function 120 Hours
As a premise to our argument, we admit that Nature is infinite. Architecture [a House] is the creation of borders within this Nature, a human creation of something non-existing in Nature. Those bordered spaces respond to needs translating human desires (for protection, stability, safety, comfort, etc.). The characteristics of the limits employed for spaces give it its inherent qualities. The qualities of a space provoke a certain perception of it: a feeling. In that sense, creating a house is creating a feeling of a house. One can associate with a space a feeling of its own. The creation of â€œuniversal spacesâ€? would allow personal appropriation. What is then the feeling of a house? A house [Architecture] is the physical embodiment of human desires, a materialization of a personal idea of a house through architectural means. Thus, a house has no function but the function one gives it.
