The Tree-House Amphitheater Design Studio IV Spring 2017

The project seeks to cultivate understandings of architecture as more than accretion of well composed form; to refine working methods that conceive and create architecture of interbedded forces and properties extending from planetary geometry to molecular character; and, to use performative physical models and sectional drawings as generative tools through theoretical design. This project prompt was to design

a theoretical amphitheater to be built in a park on the outskirts of Lubbock, Texas. My design calls into crisis the articulation of the vertical elements of the site. I wanted to create a relationship between the focused performance of the stage and the pockets of seating that I have placed in the trees of the site. In my stage and public use de-

4

sign, I made angular cuts at each space to articulate the thresholds within the structure. The pockets of seating are strategically placed to work with the site and within the trees, while keep a direct line of sight from each seat to the stage.


Field and Site Analysis:

Site Pictures:

The main focus was on the sun’s interaction with the major vertical element, topography, and vegetation on the site to create a density and organization of shadows.

Site Analysis The vertical elements are strategically placed above the topography which produce a unique interaction with landscape and shadows. The extruding height of train tracks and road create systems that work with the topography to create a very dense array of shadows around elements of the site depending on the time of day. The elements of vegetation around theriver also create a system that collaborate with the sun as another vertical element and establish shadows that intersect the other vertical conditions.

FILM INTERACTION Design Studio III Fall 2017

Film Interaction is an entire study about how movies present space to their audience through scene interaction. The Film Interaction project in particular is a study on the perspective scenes in the 1960’s movie Blow Up! directed by Michelangelo Antonioni. This movie follows a London photographer who believes he has witnessed a murder in the background of some pictures he was taking in a park. This project was intended to show unique spaces and interactions in

the movie, so the seven scenes chosen to study show the narrow edges of the streets of London, and the uncommon spatial narrative within the main characters photography studio. Section cuts correlating with the perspective drawings were then designed, and from there, layered sectional models were created. The perspective drawings and sectional drawing were designed in AutoCAD and 16

post produced in illustrator. This process began with a very literal design in the perspective drawings, and formed a completely new spatial narrative in the layered sectional models. This design process shows how one can take precedent from a movie and create and entirely new, determined space.

The Art Film Pavilion is a design that could only be between 1,000 sq ft and 3,000 sq ft, one story, and was allowed two bathrooms. This building takes precedent from the facade designs of Louis Kahn along with the overlapping and interlocking spatial sequences of the 1960’s film “Blow Up!”. The structure explores the intrusion and extrusion of window spaces with manipulated light within the buildings open and public spaces.

ARCHITECTURAL POETICS Media Elective Spring 2017

Architectural Poetics is an exploration into an abstract representation of the architectural form and structure. This project is intended to find formulistic features from common objects and create a new abstract form from this inspiration. The common object I took inspiration from was a refrigerator. After creating a photo strip of this item, I created diagrams within

the categories of orthogonal lines, tension lines, and architectonic elements found in the photos. These two dimensional diagrams were then taken into Form Z and extruded to form a three dimensional, abstract strip. From there I copied this

24

extrusion until I created an architectural form that created new, rendered views that could simulate a unique, complex architectural experience.

SONIC BINOCULARS Design Studio IV Spring 2017

The purpose of this section project was to analyze the geometric relationships of near and distant performance precedents. Then, construct a composite drawing that makes visible shared relationships between the distant example project and near physical location. In the composite drawing

combine three investigations, precedent section, local location analysis, and local location photomontage, to realize previously unseen connections. The distant site investigation was for the Ciudad

32

Abierta Amphitheater and the local site investigation was the LUCHA in Lubbock, Texas.

A photomontage allows for the characteristics of the local locations to be shared with the precedent. One influence that was constant of both is the exuviation elements from the ground. 36

CIRCULATION LIBRARY Design Studio V Fall 2017

The Denver Circulation Library will be a community space that attracts people to an environment utilizing circulation that swells to create public space. It will act as a film archive media hub that uses technology in order bring the younger Denver community together to a modernized creative environment. This library will promote unique ways of experiencing downtown Denver through a very open roof occupation and an

intimate and central outdoor viewing space. The specific glazing positions on the building creates a hybrid of spaces with defined lines of site to the busy city life around it and intimate, closed spaces that creates a personal and calm work environment. Although the

38

spaces are very different from one another, they are directly connected to produce circulation through the experiences that this building has to offer.

In 1858, after the discovery of gold in the river, William Larimer founded Denver by putting down wooden planks in the center of a mile plot that would eventually be the present LoDo neighborhood. This makes LoDo both the original city of Denver and its oldest neighborhood.

In 1988, the Denver city Council enacted zoning ordinaces that created The Lower Downtown Historic District, known as LoDo. This was created to improve the conditions in this new district and to make it the once most thriving part of town.

Total Parking in the Lodo District and 20th on the Northeast edge of the Lodo District, which helped with decreasing the crime of the district and increased parking.

In 2000, The Pepsi Center, opened located on the South West edge of the Lodo district which further helped the economy of the LoDo District.
