SPACE³ SPRING 2010 Space³ aims to enhance the events taking place in the ZER01 biennial and also hopes to help revitalize the downtown life of San Jose, specifically focusing on the SoFA district. Currently, there are many vacant spaces that we seek to ‘takeover’, ranging from empty storefronts, to open parking lots and parks and even parts of the sidewalk. What we want to do is design and eventually build installations and spaces to inhabit those unused areas. The concept behind the Space³ is adapting a simple form to be deployed into a myriad of hybrid spaces. When the cube is deployed on site, the pieces it is made from can be unlocked and reaggregated in various arrangements, enabling the participants to experience a range of program combinations. This allows the Space³ to address everchanging site conditions influenced by existing programs and time. We believe that this strategy will motivate acvtivation and participation that will engage and revitalize SoFA with its visitors.

!"#$%&

Our design strategy was to create a large inhabital space that was embedded with multiple possibilities of reconfiguration. Starting with a general solid of a cube, we started with a 2’x2’ grid, which began to address certain conditions and postures of the body. The next step was to carve out programmatic relationships from the volumes that we created. Each volume is the same in size, allowing a fluid method of reaggreagation resulting in a greater number of hybrid programs. Each volume however is very different formally, driving different programmatic conditions depending if it is aggregated with another volume. Lastly, to create the deployment strategy of a close cubic volume, the negative space carved from the initial transformations were kept as support pieces. These have the possibility to provide enclosures, lengthen space and become infrastructure for certain volumes.


(OP)SPACE: Open-sourced Urbanism

SUMMER 2010

CitySpaceShare is a pilot project being conducted by students and faculty at the CCA URBANlab, an advanced research and design studio supporting project-based initiatives in architecture at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. The goal of the project is to demonstrate how flexible architecture and a “Zipcar” style short-term rental model can contribute to the cultural and economic development of a neighborhood by giving communities the tools to reclaim unoccupied storefront spaces on a temporary basis.

OP)space is installed inside the storefront space of WORKS/San José where students are testing their architectural design through a series of programs created with the local community ranging from bike kitchen to fashion show to DJ lounge. During AbsoluteZER0, (OP)space will extend into the street in a structure built specifically to facilitate programming inside the confines of a metered parking spot.

(OP)SPACE EXECUTED


333 Studio

SUMMER 2010

Sited in the developing Mission Bay of San Francisco, 333 Studio inlcuded three quick design charettes to address program and community participation. Each week consisted of exploring a new design process and implementing a final product through that practice. SEE/WALK/RUN, taught by Jenny Sabin, explored the possibilties how Rhino scripting and site investigation can coalesce to discover architectural intervention. Using scrict rules in our algorithms to influence form, the multi-modal pavilion was discovered - unveiling a surface that allowed continuity between programs supported by a ribbed skeletal structure that directly related to site.

SUMMER 2010

DualSPEED became an extension of the previous project addressg the relationship between speeds of flow with correlating program. With Andrew Kudlass as the instructor, this project was heavily investigated through the parametric plug-in Grasshopper. Different attributes, structural, programmatic, and spatial were able to transform based on analyzing the extremes of the system and finding the optimal solution.

DIRIDON INTERMODAL HUB The Diridon portal will serve as a hub linking pedestrian, automotive, and bike passengers to Amtrak, CalTrain, Light Rail, BART, and the new California High-Speed Rail that will run from Los Angles to Sacramento. Furthermore, the project will envision new modes of transit not yet realized at the global scale.

FALL 2010

With San Jose expecting a large population inflix, there is no doubt that this will lead to growth that will change the economic landscape. The concept of this station is to connect a target group to its related destination in the city through an appropriate mode of transfer. Ultimately, Diridon station becomes a filter that efficiently directs its users into three modes of speed.

FALL 2010

California College of the Arts (CCA) advanced architecture studio will be designing and fabricating an exterior grade structure(s) with an envelope of roughly 8’x10’x7’ using ALPOLIC as the primary material. Alpolic is conventionally used as a flat sheet cladding material that relies on a structural substrate or armature for support. We will be looking at conventional and non-conventional methods of using Alpolic. Given these assumptions, the first task of the studio will be to develop a material intelligence for how the material “works” in order to direct our design. We will be testing an idea of creating structure using the Alpolic itself: the “route and fold” (milling a one sided cut, and folding the material over to create a structural rib) will be our point of departure. Once we get a working understanding for milling and manipulating the material, we will begin testing formal and tectonic strategies relevant to program, structural integrity and spatial quality, along with parameters of weight, cost, solid/void, etc.


Mitsubishi Plastics Composites America, INC , has partnered with CCA through a significant donation of their ALPOLIC material to this studio. Given this arrangement, it is understood that we will be looking to find material/construction strategies to implement the material as much as possible. Presently, we have an allotment of 52x98â&#x20AC;?x4mm sheets of alpolic that is for R&D purposes. Once we hone the design, we will then receive another allotment of material specific for final fabrication.
