Folding Motion Roadside Soccer Stadium

This project creates a new way to experience and see an arena soccer game. It allows the spectator to view the game from all angles and doesn’t limit him to one viewing angle for th whole game. It does this by, a series of folds that create areas of light, access, balconies, terraces and an outlook. That is then applied to a loop that surrounds the field, which is place adjacent to the road.

Stacked Hydro City Navy Pier Redesigned Residence

FRIGHT/BOAT TRAFFIC CLOSED FARRY ROUTES 1970 PROPOSED FARRY ROUTES PORTS/HARBORS

Lake Michigan is 1 of 5 large bodies of fresh water in the world, making the area a desirable place to live. A conventional pier is the connection and exchange between land and water circulation. This proposal is to derive maximum benefit from superimposing on the site elements of a neighborhood, in the most efficient manner to crate segregation and layout of program within each layer. This proposal connects the existing city with the lake to provide more residential, commercial and recreational space adjacent to the shoreline.


Site view into the city


The project comprises a stacked morphology, so that it accommodates, zones of the major programmatic categories. This stacking, is not unlike the experience of a high-rise building, with its superimposed floors all capable of supporting different programmatic events, yet all contribute to a summation that is more than the accumulation of parts. Deploying different layers and organizations within each layer create a new stacked urbanism.

One and/or the Other Outdoor Market

In physics and geometry, the centenary is the curve that an idealized hanging chain or cable assumes when supported at its ends and acted on only by its own weight. The curve is the graph of the hyperbolic cosine function, and has a U-like shape, superficially similar in appearance to a parabola. Its surface of revolution, the catenoid, is a minimal surface and is the shape assumed by a soap film bounded by two parallel circular rings.


Permananet and temporary market stalls


A system is created that starts with a highly dense connection and sprouts out and back down towards the earth creating an upside down centenary curve. The secondary connections are from pod-topod to connect pods of the same use to encourage moment to the other pods. This system is then centered by the main large pod that connects the ground level with underground service areas.

2ND FLOORLAYOUT PLAN

A2.2

This project utilizes the standard sizes that material come in to minimize the cost of the building and the amount of construction waste. It also uses bay construction, which will allow the use of the building to be changed much easier. Currently the building has been designed to be a school with 46 classrooms and 16 general purpose rooms along with a gym and auditorium.
