DESIGN MODULE


LEARNING SUMMARY


‘Architecture is more about what you feel, rather than what you see. Although function should be the first priority, but aesthetic aspect should come a long with the design as a whole.’

A

rchitecture is a broad subject to be explored as it comprised of several layers from planning, designing, construction form, space as well as ambience to reflect functional, technical, social, environmental and aesthetic considerations. It requires the creative manipulation and coordination of materials with technology, and of light and shadow. Often, conflicting requirements must be resolved in order to produce the better design.

It may seem impossible at the first glance. However, with the courage from studio 6 colleagues and hard working, this model can be finished on time. A lot of consideration was taken into account to create this device which is very different from what I have done during the first two years in the Architecture course. This has made me realize that to create and design a building with micro to macro scale consideration is not an easy task. It is not only about creating wonderful concept without considering structure, mateThrough the process of learning is a cyclical and lifelong rials and cost.

ABOUT THIS PORTFOLIO.

‘HOME FOR LESS’ ‘As statistics show more young people are becoming homeless in the UK, a new play questions why more is not being done to help those forced onto the streets. UK goverment figures show the number of people sleeping rough in England has increased by a third since 2010. The number of homeless single adults is up too, but more of them are in programs than used to be, and some have been taken to living underground, in tunnels and other places out of sight. Pragmatic solutions on this issue has to be taken into consideration. It is an undeniable fact

that architects play an important role in solving this serious problem. This portfiolio explores and investigates the homeless situation in the UK through design approach from small scale up to large scale project. By bringing together social, cultural and political explorations of infrastructures role in the built environment, together with developing complex programmatic and architectural ideas, the Infrastructure Studio has set itself the challenge of addressing the small and intermediates scales

of intervention into changing infrastructures in both the northeast and the A40 in London. As for the projects, taking homelessness as the main scenario, the portfolio developes specific material responses & deploying specific infrastructural mechanisms in the semester one project, whereas building programmatic responses & larger architectural-scale inventions in the graduation project. Both projects aim to achieve the ‘Home For Less’ ambition of building something that minimises constructional cost and yet functional as well as beneficial to the society.’

‘Infrastructure forms the substrata of our lives. We live in amongst a web, a network of connections that intersects almost all areas of urban and rural environments. These infrastructures are always, to some extent, physical – they have a material existence that is in a constant state of flux: as technologies change, their distribution channels alter too. And they leave legacies – ones that offer the potential to be rethought, reimagined and reintegrated into the fabric of the city. The emergence of these channels of distribution (be they digital or analogue: virtual or material) is an inherent function of the emergence of social and cultural forms of change. The technological development of the bicycle led to the metalling of roads, and had concomitant impacts on forms of social organization. The subsequent emergence of the car reformulated these surfaces yet again, re-altering social forms once more. On the first project, we are looking into different infrastructure that may be redundant or not being use effieciently. This redundant infrastructure is presented as ‘The Sleeping Beauty’. Therefore, the challenge is to wake up ‘The Sleeping Beauty’ by designing a device that will increase the efficiency and attract people back to use this infrastructure without destroying and rebuilding the existing infrastructure.’

PHASE 1

LOOKING INTO THE SLEEPING BEAUTY ‘Carpark’s Typology’ Carpark is one type of the infrastructure that has become very dominant in many big cities as numbers of car are increasing. However, this has become a concern as many of them are left empty during the night time. In this phase, I am looking more details into the feature of carpark such as facade,entrance or exit, vertical layout, and pedestrian routes. By combining 6 carparks that located around big cities in United Kingdom; Newcastle Manors Carpark, Leeds Woodhouse Lane, Birmingham Albertstreet Parking, Manchester Picadily Car Park, London Welback Street, Liverpool Liverpool One, Sheffield Charles Street, the definition of carpark becomes clearer. The features may have different design but serve a uni function.

OBJECT DISASSEMBLY ‘Meopta Video Camera’ Many objects may look really simple from the appearance. However, it took a lot of thoughts and consideration to design it. By disassambling small object, we can start to learn the mechanism inside and also how the object comes together, looking into micro details rather than its function. Meopta Video Camera is the choosen object to disassemble. It shows the past technology where more mechanical than electronical. The QR code links to the dissamble process of the object.

BRIEF MAKING ‘Homeless During Winter’


‘For homeless people, frostbite is winter’s number one hazard. Most common is frostbite of hands or feet—from superficial to deep. Not unheard of, because of muddled judgment from intoxicants or mental illness, are frostbite-related amputations. Second is the danger of illness associated with cold weather. The cold lowers immunity and thickens blood, increasing the risk of everything from infection to heart attack. Thirdly, prolonged exposure causes hypothermia and can result in death. The core temperature at which a body expires varies widely from

person to person. But in general, men are more prone to freezing than women, as are the lean and well-muscled; but those most prone are the ill-prepared homeless. Joseph who experienced homelessness says he sometimes worries about freezing to death. But when I ask him what the worst thing is about being homeless in the winter, he says, “Depression.” Weather affects our mental state. No surprise. Science bears this out. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a well-documented form of depression that can strike healthy people. If depression is the fourth danger, the fifth—a clearly related yet distinct danger—is loneliness.’

‘Shelter’

‘Heat’

‘Moving’

One basic neccessity of human is to have a place to live in and to feel safe. However, for homeless, there is no place to call home. They only move from one place to another carrying boxes as their shelter.

During the winter, homeless people will suffer more as there is no electricity or any enrgy source for them to use to heat their self. The only way for them is to wear multiple layers of clothes.

For homeles people, they tend not to live in one specific area. They travel from one place to another place where they find it comfortable to stay for a night. So portability is one key aspect in designing a device for homless.

‘Imagine waking up in a strange place every single day. It could be a shelter, a public bathroom, a park, a playground, some public bleachers, an abandoned building, or maybe on a bench if none of the others are available. You get up and put your backpack on or pick up whatever bag you have to carry your stuff in, and you just start walking.‘ ‘Along the way you might ask people if they have any cash on them, you make up a story like, “I left my wallet at home and I have to take the bus to work.’ ‘But what you really need the money for is to get some breakfast or lunch depending on what time of the day it is. You might get five bucks so you go to a McDonald’s or something and get a burger off the dollar menu and maybe a soda, if it’s not too expensive, then you save the rest of the cash for later.’ ‘After you’ve finished your meal, you start walking again. You might go to a store making it look like you are going to buy something but really you’re just trying to kill time. find some employment opportunities at the same time. Your stomach growls so you ask somebody, “Do you know what time it is? I forgot to put on my watch this morning.” It’s about 1:30 or 2:00 so you figure it’s about time to get something to eat. You’ve got about 3 bucks left over from earlier so you go to a gas station to get something cheap and filling. You get an energy bar or a granola bar, something that will keep you going for a couple of hours.’

‘The Idea’

or

H U M A N

The quesion raised is what is the main function of a building in urban cities, accomodating human being or vehicles? In the urban area, the number of vehicles increase in an unprecedented rate due to the high population. Hence, buildings are demolished in order to accomodate the large amount of vehicles. Taking Manors car park in Newcastle as an example, the carpark opening hourss starts at 7 in the morning and closes at 10 o’clock at night. In other words, the car park is unuse during the night. Therefore, the overall aim behind the project is to reuse the ‘redundant’ car park during the night as a temporary shelter for human being. The idea is about we can provide a shelter without costing but also take the function of the car park to the fullest potential. Hence, the building efficiency is improved by making the Manors car park a 24-hour functional space.

The device is deigned not only for accomodating the homeless people, but also benefits the exisiting infrastructure - Manors Car Park.

As the device production is utlised for non profit purpose but more of a device that will be integrated with the exisiting infrastructure. The project aim is to ensure the device materials can be kept using. For instance, two key waste materials being reused of the device construction are redundant scafolding and recycled wooden pallets. Additionally, the devices are considered for future adaptation as they are portable and adaptable.

THE ISSUE

BENEATH LONDON ‘A New Hope for Unployment ’ Unemployment is plummting faster in London than anywhere else in the country as the capital’s robust economy continues to generate tens of thousands of jobs. The rate of urban population growth outplaced suburban growth as people increasingly choose to live in cities instead of outside them. Rapid growth and strong investment is driving up the population, which is the major factor that cause the major rise in London house price. According to new analysis, the average London home will cost more than 1m pounds by 2030 due to chronic housing shortage that continues to push up the prices. The main idea behind this project is to generate hope into London city by using the existing infrastructure (the A40 London). In london, urban motorways often act as a linkage between suburban and urban area. As for the A40, thousands of vehicle passing through the elevated motorway either towork or finding jobs. Space in, on and around the ribbon of concrete, in the strange liminal land of London’s main western artery, provide remnants of space that, in a city of estreme real estate premiums are oddly underused. The idea is to utilise the underused spaces around the A40 to create working spaces and accomodation for people who are struggling to find a job in London. The usual job cycle system today is about working to get paid and then pay for food in order to survive. What about bringing the idea back to the primitive way where people only hunt to get food to suvive. The project explores the possiblity of this system and then implement it into an architectural way while also reuse the underused spaces around the A40 London. The idea came by locating growing stations along the A40 london with the Central Living as the main core of the system. Often, elevated motorways are constructed without any social and cultural considerations beneath them. For example, the construction of A40 motorway has brought noise, disruption, destruction and pollution to a community that was already contending with economic hardship, a decaying inner city environment and neglect. This has led to community action in the fight for better housing and open spaces where children could play. Hence, the graduation project explores into this serious issue with the unemployment idea behind to create a new enviromental system along the A40 motorway that would benefit both.

Looking back to the history of london where the great depression happened in 1930, Protests are held around London as the unemployment rate doubled by 20 percent by the end of 1930. In the mid 1960’s, an overhead motorway, A40 was constructed. However, homes were demolished and streets chopped into half or left stranded, exposed to the noise of traffic and nightly glare of headlights. The protests of local residents hit the headlines when the motorway opened in 1970. Today, although less protests are held for the homeless people, the number of homeless people in London still increase in an unprecendented rate. No.37

MODERN PRIMITIVE

DESIGN APPROACH ‘The Utopian Dream’


‘Primitive Cultures are Simple, Civilization is Complex’ Going back to the primitive era, people use what technology they have available to them such as shelter, food and security in order to survive. It is a simple living system wihtout money but civilization is complex. The survival system today is that people in the city have to go to work and then get paid in order to purchase for their needs.

‘A New Layer of Infrastructure’ My design approach is about implementing the simple primitive system into the complex world today. As illustrated, river in the past was the resource of living where water, food, animals gathered along. It represents the infrastructure as people travel from one point to the other along the river. In urban cities like London, elevated motorways are one of the key infrastructure. However, land around the motorway are underuse compared to the in the past. My idea is to change the function of the current infrastructure to function similar to that of the river in the past by transforming the A40 into the main resource of London with vertical growing wall located along it.

A40 SECTION INTERACTION BETWEEN STATION & INFRASTRUCTURE

‘Growing wall’ - the small station 02 acts as a new layer of infrastructure that is attached to the existing infrastructure (A40). Stations locating along the A40 are linked together by an elevated route for human, which is similar to the function of the elevated motorway. The route represents a new hope for the unemployed people, leading them to the growing wall stations to seek for job opportunity. It is a new dream with a visionary system of political and societal perfection, function to improve the community’s daiily lives.

The main living wall idea came from the planting pots from the growing wall. The pots might be vary depending on the size and type of the plants. By looking it into a bigger scale, the accomodation space can be vary as well depending on the status, character and number of human. The pots idea is then implemented into the design of living wall accomodation.

BUILDING PLAN INTERSECTION.

‘Plans Model’ The intention of making the plan in such way is to show the relationship between each overlapping floor. As shown on the illustration on the left, the path ways on the centre atrium intersects each other in different direction on different floor. This is designed to encourage human interaction in the building. For instance, while walking from one side to the other side, people using the pathway could start a conversation easily.

Pots are pre-fabircated and delivered to the site. It safes time and give a flexibility in terms of building construction. The idea behind the construction system is that in the future, pots design or function may be out dated, it can be easily replacable with a new pots. Therefore, the ‘Living Central’ will also welcome a new tenant and it will become a building that also keep growing following the time
