One Artist Museum


One Artist Museum


Located adjacent to the Highline in New York City, my one ­artist museum focused on the work of Georgia O’Keefe. Having ­previously been unacquainted with her work, I spent a few days familiarizing myself with it. Once this task was complete, I began the cyclical process of designing/redesigning based upon the information I had gathered from a week in New York as well as the work of Georgia O’Keefe. Her influence on the museum was not as emphasized in elevation or section, but when I stacked the floor plans a secret greeted my eyes.

OFF THE GRID

The introverted diagrid present in Morphosis’s Cooper Union and the extroverted structural grid of Norman Foster’s Hearst Tower were married in an undulating exterior diagrid. This ­diagrid ­defined the building envelope and provided a playful exterior that interacted with the Highline.

The Foundation


BEACON HILL

Just south of Highway 71 in Kansas City, the Beacon Hill d ­ istrict has been hailed as an up and coming neighborhood. All it lacks is a catalyst, something to revitalize the area. In this instance, a school seeks to serve that purpose; a school that would bring parents and youth together. But it shouldn’t solely function as a school; it had to be a foundation for the community.

TWIN TEE PROCESS

The section model I constructed consisted of twin tees placed using plaster and three precast concrete panels placed using fast setting cement. Each tee was set into the precast panels and cantilevered for 15 inches. To keep the plaster from fracturing under its own weight, I embedded 15 pieces of wire within each plaster casting. This was accomplished by using a laser cut jig to hold the wire in place within the formwork as the plaster was placed.

The Foundation


The concrete panels were similar to the wire ­embedded tees since each one had a cotton mesh nestled inside. Each panel was only a 1/2” thick, 7” wide, and 30” long and would have broken when loaded with the tees if not for the reinforcement. The tees slid into slots within each panel and were then fixed in place.

WARM UP

THAT’S A WRAP

During the spring and summer semester of my fourth year, I worked at Perkins Eastman in New York City. Within the firm I worked in ‘Studio 6’ which primarily designed healthcare ­projects located in Manhattan and a few in the surrounding areas. I spent the majority of the winter months working with 3DS Max and Sketchup to create digital models. (I even modeled some paper around several books that were destined for clients.)

IN THE FRAY

NSLIJ SITE

The spring months were filled with work on a hospital that was located in Greenwich Village. I went on several site visits to photograph the building, modeled surrounding context, and made several renderings of proposed schemes. For a few presentations I generated icon-like graphics that went on site plans to indicate notable features such as subway lines, metro entrances, and local businesses. Later, for an in-house presentation on Studio 6, I cut out the profile of New York from wrapping paper and pinned project locations to their respective areas.

ENTRY IDEA


HOME STRETCH Continuing the work from the spring months, I spent the summer working on additional signage schemes for the hospital in Greenwich Village. The concept was to have a screen outside the ambulance entrance that displayed the word emergency in 40 different languages. After mapping the text to each individual panel, I made numerous mock ups showcasing the variations of the super graphic. Once the final design was selected I made several renderings depicting how the graphic would look.

JUST IN TIME At the very end of my internship, having previously been working solely in the digital realm, I worked in the model shop for two weeks. Within the shop I worked with two other colleagues and we produced models on a variety of scales--ranging from master planning to intricate detail models. When I wasn’t constructing models, I taught the other model makers how to operate and maintain their rarely used laser cutter, a skill I learned while in school. There is something forever enchanting about being able to cut out a perfect circle an infinite amount of times.

DIGITAL FABRICATION


A NOT-SO-STICKY SITUATION what you need to know!

objective: serve a purpose purpose: practice strategies for conquering the world material: 0.200” and 0.100” acrylic

how to make life difficult!

limitations: use only one (or two) 18”x32” sheets of acrylic constraints: all joints must be glueless, tapeless, and screwless requirements: no fasteners! no glue! only friction joints may be used AND the object must only be able to be produced by a laser cutter

what I did

joints: I utilized two joints, one was a slip joint with tabs that locked it into place (depicted in the queen diagram) and the second joint used circles to connect the substructure to the board. slip joints: used on both the structure connections and the individual pieces. circle joints: 0.01” was routered out of the top of each one, allowing the circle to snap onto the structure. board: had the profile of these circles routered out of it to a depth of .01” allowing the circles to fit snugly inside.

SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED

...this chapter is about what happens outside of studio. where design is put into practice to solve a problem. in one sense, this section could be viewed as design + build, albeit at a much smaller scale, but the outcome is the same. i address a problem, explore solutions, and build what i believe to be the best answer.

...this is what i do for fun

JAWS OF WOOD?

A stitching pony allows leather to be sewn with both hands, rather than just using one. After sewing the previous wallet with via table top vise, I decided to take the initiative and make a stitching pony. The pony was milled on the CNC out of Baltic birch plywood with oak dowels acting as index points when it was laminated together. I devised a turnbuckle system between the jaws that allows for easy adjustment of the amount of force exerted on the leather being stitched.

CARDBOARD SHIPPING CONTAINTER

After designing a wallet and a tool to help construct it, it only made sense to design the packaging that it would ship in. Doing so ensured that the recipient wouldn’t haphazardly open just any box to have the wallet fall out, but rather they would peel away at the layers until the wallet was uncovered. Corrugated cardboard was used due to the strength it possesses while remaining lightweight. To minimize the amount of individual pieces that would have to be glued together, I designed the box in an origami style. It could be assembled from three pieces of laser cut cardboard that all folded together.
