SPECTACLE OF INTRUSION Spring 2018 ARCH 102 RACHEL BOURAAD PROF MICHELE GORMAN


SITE ANALYSIS RESEARCH AND SYNTHESIS

UNROLLED SECTION AND PLAN

synthetic subdivision analysis


FINAL SYNTHETIC LAYER Analysis of the original townhouse began with highlighting and extending thresholds. The original ‘boundary’ for analysis burnt out areas of circulation within the unrolled section and plan. Lines following thresholds were extended to form a network within a 45-degree diagrid. A chipped-L shape was highlighted in the synthetic portion of drawing analysis.

ANALYSIS OF SPATIAL LIMITS OF TWO BODIES IN MOTION

Programmatic analysis began with considering the limitations and opportunities in designing for the human body. First, the Pratt Library Stack Stair was measured, drawn, and analyzed. Next, two bodies were observed in states of motion and rest. In both cases, spatial requirements for the bodies were noted and diagrammed, as a cataloguing tool for design. The two bodies were assigned professions: an Artist and a Curator - roles further developed in the hybridization of two formal systems and relation to site and program.

STRUCTURAL CHIPPED L SHAPES - SEGMENT OF DESIGN APPROACH A

SLOTTED AND NOTCHED VOLUMES - COMPONENT OF DESIGN APPROACH B

orthogonal spaces, apertures for cracks of light, spatial notching diagonal circulation, nested structural support, spatial chipping

L-SHAPE —> STRUCTURAL AGAIN TO HANG NOTCHED VOLUMES

HYBRID CHIPS INTO GROUND FOR ARTIST HIDEAWAY

SLOTTED AND NOTCHED COMPONENTS AGGREGATE TO FORM ORTHOGONAL SPACES AS WELL AS AN ALLEYWAY CONDITION

L-SHAPE VOLUME BECOMES STRUCTURAL AS NECESSARY AND ALLOWS FOR DIAGONAL CIRCULATION AND SEATING FOR THE PUBLIC


HYBRIDIZATION - FINAL MODEL COMBINING AND CONSIDERING SITE, PROGRAM, AND STRUCTURE.

HYBRID DISPLAYS A NOTION OF INTRUSION IN THE CREATION OF ART, AND THE PUBLICIZING OF IT. THE ARTIST IS PUT ON DISPLAY IN THE DRAMATIC OVERREACHING ANGLE OF THE DESIGN, ALLOWED COMFORT ONLY IN THE ENCLOSED ORTHOGONAL SPACES. THE CURATOR LEADS THE PUBLIC THROUGH THE HYBRID, INTO AN UNDERGROUND ENTRANCE THAT CHIPS INTO THE GROUND. PIECES OF THE HYBRID INTO OTHERS, INTRUDING THE ARTIST’S SPACE. THE L-SHAPE VOLUME BECOMES VOIDED AND STRUCTURAL TO HANG AND DISPLAY SOME OF THE ARTIST’S SPACES. THE SITE IS LIMITING AND NARROW. THE HEIGHT AND OVERREACHING ASPECT OF MY DESIGN LEAD THE PUBLIC INTO THE UNDERBELLY OF IT, AND THROUGH CIRCULATION THAT CONTRASTS TRADITIONAL MOVEMENT, USING STAIRS AS SEATING. MY DESIGN ALSO QUESTIONS THE FUNCTION OF A BACKYARD.
