Thematic studio: liquid urbanism Design Studio (BSc Year 3 Architecture, 2015-2016) Duration : 10 months Tutor : Lukas Allner, Shibu Raman

01. BACKGROUND

02. CONTEXT

03. Masterplan

04. DESIGN SCHEME

The Proposal is to design a new Student centre in the STEM (Science,Technology, Engineering & Maths) University within the expanded masterplan to boost social mobility and flow.

Located 20 miles from Norwich Norfolk costal borough of Great Yarmouth has a population of 97,277 and 42079 households (National Statics, 2011). Great Yarmouth or Yarmouth largest urban agglomeration in the borough is where 65% of its population live.

The design of the masterplan is derived by extending the existing axis of the urban axis of high street as well as existing road axes of the town coupled by superimposition of circle as new geometry as protection of the whole masterplan.

All of Yarmouth coastline as well as the marshland on the west of the town are floodable. The whole aim of the unit is to explore on the relationship of water and architecture. The main issue of rising sea water level is one of the main challenges that needed to be overcome in the proposal.

As secondary road axes is added, the result is a new directional axis from the new residential zone towards the new centre of the masterplan which is the circle.

The surrounding buildings and programs in the masterplan inform the genesis of the architecture of the student centre. The overall shape retain the geometry of circular paths as well as the directional axis. The architecture is highly contextual within the invented context of the masterplan.

The proposal will focus on creating Knowledge Based economy in the context of Great Yarmouth. Great yarmouth would expect a growing population. Its economy is highly driven by energy and services sector and 75% jobs created are service based. However, based on the observations, the main site is considered as the most deprived area despite it being the main tourist destination. Only 19.5 % of the population possessed ‘high end’ skill qualification in comparison to 38% nationally. The energy sector in Great Yarmouth is a great opportunity of particular importance are the STEM subjects. in the report, it is mentioned that Initiatives are underway but they are not in tertiary level or too faraway from the site. By Improving the educational infrastructures it will create the potential for the industry to grow as it helps to benefit the Locals to be more highly qualified. It will also helps in bringing new people into the area which also will help to boost the retails & services sectors of the existing community.

The exact site is Located right above the Brittania Pier. It snatched on the urban axis of the High street with retails and commercials land uses. It aims to target public flow from both the High street and residents of the area.

The residential is located next to the existing residential area which consist of mixed density of 1,2,3 bedrooms units. These residential blocks are mean to be flexible, it can be added and manipulaed depending on the changing site condition or demand for increase in population. The whole masterplan has flood wall on the outer periphery of the masterplan. These floodwall protect the stationary buildings such as the museums, library, research centres, and the school.

The main concept of this building is to retain directional flow within the interior as to connect various program inside and to the various buildings in the existing masterplan. the proposal also explored the idea of transprogramming by Bernard Tschumi by superimposing a new program of conservatory to satisfy the public as it acts as educational and recreational facilities, as well as for the student as to create a better learning environment. The building house programs such as conservatories, Event space, Seminar rooms, multimedia lab, informal study lounges, pub, cafe, auditorium, admin office, student library and student research centre. Flow inform the structural configuration of the building. The contrast of the transparent blocks as well as the solif blocks represent how each spatial configuration benefit from each other.

03. ISSUE

04. DESIGN SCHEME

The client of this project is the IaI (Institue of Arts & Ideas). It occupies Globe building in Hay-on-Wye as its permanent base, and is looking to expand onto separate site accros the river for its anual festival of ‘How the light gets in’.

The project is located in the Hay-on-Wye which is known as a Cultural hub in Wales. It is known firstly as a Market tow and it transformed into a Book town. In the present the town is known as a place where Festival of Arts and Literature is happening.

The site itself is experiencing a decline in its identity as a booktown due to advance of technology(internet). When its in it offpeak period, what happened to the town?

The proposal uses exhibition spaces as well as its performance space as the key drivers. Exhibition spaces are used as its function may bring in visitors even during an off-peak periods.

Current visitors during its on peak period includes writers, thinkers, film-makers, historians, novelists, philosophers, environmentalists, poets, scientists, comedians, musicians. It is a place where during its busiest month, represents Celebration of knowledge and culture.

01. ABOUT

02. CONTEXT

Housing with care is a project to design 10-15 dwellings with appropriate shared and ommunal facilities. The client for this project is specifically for the visually impaired. There are two typology of single units and family units. 10 of which are for single/couple occupancy and 5 of it are for the family (3 bedrooms).

The general site location is at the edge of Grangetown and the River Taff south of cardiff, Wales.

To create an understanding of space, the average human being depends on three senses; sight, hearing, and touch. Relying primarily on his sense of sight in order to allow himself to orient and navigate himself through space. The black pyramid illustrates three main senses organized in order of importance in their utilization to experience spaces. Therefor as a visually impaired person is unable to depend on his sense of vision the design straegy will focus on the dependence of other senses. The white pyramid shows the new organization of the senses where hearing is given priority, then touch and then finall sight. 04. DESIGN AIM The main aim of the project is to create a non-institutional Place of living as well as to achieve a universal design. Most importantly it is very essential to let the users to trust the space. The most important features in the spaces to enable the visually impaired to commute around is to let them know the orientation of spaces. It is also important to incorporate the existing site qualities and physical conditions.

New Extension of Singapore Art Museum Final Thesis Project (BA Level 3 Design Studio, Semester 2, 2013) Duration : 15 weeks Supervising Lecturer : Ang Xin Wei, Jay Loo

01. BACKGROUND

02.CONTEXT

03. DESIGN SCHEME

04.OBJECTIVE

The research topic behind this project is theory of Deconstructivism, Time and Architecture.

“Singapore Art museum focuses on the creation of art in the present moment. It advocates and presents the contemporary art practices of Singapore, Southeast Asia and Asia, situating them within the global context of art making today” (exert from SAM website).

The proposal uses the theory of Deconstructivism to create unexpected design solutions to change public’s perception of the Singapore Art Museum.

The new extension allows a rebirth of SAM to make it relevant to the current context and its contemporary image.

Singapore Faces the challenge of keeping the balance between Conservation and Redevelopment. Both are deemed as important factors in Singapore Architecture. We see a lot of building being preserved, however they lose their relevancy in the current time period. Conservation should be seen as a way of adapting the changes that take place in Architecture. If the purpose of conservation is for the “preservation of heritage and memory, as well as to make it last for future generation, conservation should not be about bringing the past to the present, but it is to act as a bridge to achieve architecture that withstand contingencies

The idea of contemporary identity seems detached with its building physical identity, because the building in which they occupy is considered the National monument. SAM is stuck with the ‘old’ building as the result of strict URA (Urban Redevelopment Authority) measures.

It utilizes the same concept of prism, where old building went trhough a projection process to derive its new form. Showing that paradoxical approach is used in designing the new extension. Using the old structural elements to break the old, and using the symmetrical axis to break the symmetry, resulting in dynamic, flexible and unexpected spaces, which will bring the public closer to Art and break the conventional perception of how Art museums should be. It uses projection of lines which symbolizes traces of the old, resulting in the rebirth of the new extension which is visible troughout the whole design.

It allows SAM to break away from its own mold of spaces hierachy, where the new galleries allow for more open and exposed setting. Some programs such as Action Art space, Art Playground and Art lab are designe to be concentrated around the pedestrian parth to bring Art closer to the public. The interior spaces are derived from the diagram of array height which allow dynamic forms to be derived.

01. ABOUT PLATZ the German Pavilion is a collaborative effort with Carolina Cancerinadewi. It is a part of the ‘Fatamorgana’ exhibition that took place at LASALLE College of the Arts which was a response to our experiences during the study trip to Germany.

02.BACKGROUND PLATZ originates from our desire to create a pavilion that does not belong to any one site and therefor is able to exist in any setting. The pavilion was therefore named PLATZ which is German for ‘place’.

03.DESIGN SCHEME Tracing German History, PLATZ symbolises both a timeline of historical events as well as an exuberant embodiment of hope. The pavilion guides users through symbolic spatial gestures that draw references from events, orientations and emotions. The journey culminates at the circular shaft with the user experiencing a sublime sense of purity and freedom. The perfect circular form contrast with the seemingly chaotic journey representing the notion of infinite possibilities for the future.

03. DESIGN SCHEME

Government try to solve the increasing number of single people in Singapore by giving housing policy to them. Only single people above 35 years old are allowed to buy resale flat.

The proposal of a residential development, bespoke to the needs of single unmarried individuals, at the same time providing them with alternative housing options and ownership.

The design aim to explore the full possibilities of complex experiences for its users. it aims to strive toward visual interactions of different activities going on.

However, government policy does not give much impact to singles itself, instead singles need a shelter to ‘set up matrimonial homes,rather than get married in order to qualify for a flat’.

The proposal is different in such a way that it encourages interaction between the singles, and by doing this it maybe a better alternative compared to the current government practices of using housing policies to encourage marriages. By proposing this, it allows singles to interact naturally among themselves to avoid seemingly current trend of people marrying for a wrong reason (home ownership).

There is also dynamic relationship between structures and its landscape, as well as relationship between the structures with furnitures. The circulation aim to create continuity and fluidity by mixing the use of spaces. it avoids the conventional approach of achieving synthesis which is part of the theory of Deconstructivism.

4. Road access to basement carpark, however the continuity of the landscape are disturbed.

5. Zoned the carpark entrance and pulled it up to allow the continuity of the landscape.

6. Allowing the landscape to creep inside the building to create Interstitial space between landscape and the club house.

7. Zoning the library outside to compensate the space taken by the indoor garden.

8. Pushing up the block by 3600mm (standard height volume)

9. Shifting up the clock that blocking the road and the central atrium to allow for human circulation.

10. tThe form is then deconstructed to allow human circulation from residential 2nd floor, and from the atrium ground, showing relationship of the landscape with the structure.

01. PROGRAM BRIEF

02. DESIGN SCHEME

03. CIRCULATION

Singapore is comprised of numerous Shopping malls which groan under many global fashion brands and the local fashion scenes does not stand up among the locals. Therefore, to help Singapore achieves its vision to be the next Global Fashi on hub, a proposal of an institution specialized in fashion is derived. As cultivating a successful batch of Fashion designers has to start from the roots which is education.

The proposal derives its concept from Vogue identity which represents sophisticated image to its reader. Sophisticated image suggest that there is more than meet the eye, therefore a geode crystal was used as a representation of this sophisticated image.

The smaller block serves a private area for students which comprise of studios, library and student lounges. While the bigger block serves public and semi public areas such as the retail and the auditorium area. The larger block is attached to facade of the Capitol building. The design shows a complex and sophisticated layout while retaining a simple and traditional exterior.

A retail space dedicated to its student will be proposed as well. It will act as a platform to help the local talents survived among the Global Fashion Giants. The program will affiliate itself with Vogue. It will benefit both the institution and the retail as its established name in fashion industry will provide different perspective in fashion education. It will also help to attract more people.

The retail area on the first floor is housed under a glass faceted crystal atrium with four volumes while the second floor is a double volume space. This is to give importance to the retail area as the retail area is the first impression of the whole proposal itself. it houses the design and the students’ hard work. Circulation between spaces will allow the visitor to go through different kind of spaces. The use f glass beside representing the facets of the crystal, it also to provide constant interaction between the student and public

01. PROJECT BRIEF

03. THE RABBIT HOLE

05. ELEMENT OF SURPRISE

To design an F & B outlet for “The White Rabbit” which will be located at Robertson Quay. Seventy percents of the space will be allocated for F & B, while thirty percents of the rest will accomodate a secondary retail function.

The Rabbit Hole is the main communal area which serves as a bar and is located right at the entrance. Inspired by the novel “Alice in Wonderland”, It represents the starting point of the “Fantasy”.

The Rooftop Garden is an outdoor dining area which resembles a hilly area covered with grass. It signifies fantasy within the building. Just like in Wonderland, where random sceneries emerge unpredictably.

04. DISTORTING PROPORTION 06. RETAIL

02. CONCEPT Inspired by Lewis Caroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”, The White Rabbit at Robertson Quay focuses on creating an augmentation in the fabrics of reality. Bending the notions of space and time. It is a place where time stands still and one would feel naturally at ease. The beauty of the surroundings cause one to be drawn away from their everyday lives and plunged into a world where amusement lingers forever.

The main dining spaces on the first and second floor are double volume spaces that are located right against windows which are blown out of proportion, and are also filled with oversized furniture, causing one to feel shrunk down to size and allowing them to look at everyday objects in different perspectives. Whereas the dining area on the third floor consists of small pocket of private spaces similar to those of miniature houses. In opposition of the previous experience, one will feel gigantic instead.

The retail area is on all floor levels. Collectibles such as antiques and vintage items are strategically placed all over the space at random in order to accentuate the overall atmosphere of surreality and whim. The White Rabbit is an escape from reality. It allows a magical and romantic experience to be enjoyed with the loved ones. Though the concept is surreal, the design is to be kept simple and classic to retain the identity and signature look of the original establishment itself.

01. PROGRAM BRIEF

02. SITE LOCATION

03. DESIGN SCHEME

To redesign a shop house located in a conservation area to become a living and working spaces for a person in a creative industry. In this case, a Fashion Designer. The professional requirement include a working spaces, office spaces, and a shop boutique.

Situated at 46 Kandahar Street in Kampong Glam area and it is in the Heritage Conservation District of Singapore. The district is known for its rich Islamic Culture and situated amongst low rise building. This District usually gets very crowded on friday afternoons, due to prayers, as well as during the Festive season of Islamic community. The site is surrounded with several authentic restaurants, as well as Cafe and bars. It is also located near Haji lane and Arab street which is known for its leisure activities. In relation of the profession, several fabric shops also located at Arab street which makes it convenient for a Fashion designer to live there. The facade of the each shop house need to be retained as it is part of the conservation requirement.

The design ins inspired by how fashion industry always evolve, they are usually fast-changing and growing. Translating it into the design, the house will give a feeling of something is changing and growing represented by the structures and the spaces. Usage of slanted plane walls and “growing” spaces to further emphasize the evolution. The design also allow to highlight the evolving spaces to allow experience and journey not only for the fashion designer herself, but also for her clients.

The client specifically requested for the public and the private spaces to be differentiated. The condition of her job often to require her to stay up till late night in the working space. Therefor, a cozy private spaces would be necessary

The Gradation of dark to light is incorporated into different spaces. Public spaces located in the first floor is in a darker hue, by using a lot of plane walls, moving on to the semi private spaces will be the semi-bright hue, showed by using frosted glass. Lastly, the private spaces will represent the brightest hue of spaces. The little emphasis of usage of pathway in few spaces is too indicate that as a person living in the fashion industry, “Everyday is a runway”.
