*Super Azzurri Deep Surface Studio

Texas Tech University - ARCH 5502- Pongratz - Fall ‘10

06

The Deep Surface Studio intends to explore the possibilities of fabrication with surface repetition, relief and variation. The introduction of milling maching made the initial prototype fabrication process possible in order to create tangible conceptual designs.

Initial Concept

Tile Evolution

Tile Generation Evolution The initial strategy for the ‘Super Azzurri’ piece was to create a surface field that contained variation that could be created with the least number of tiling. The concentration of variation takes place within the first evolution, where seven tiles are created, then the seven tiles can assembe the next five generations of tile evolutions, which in theory are only 2 tiles (see A & B) rotated along their axis. Therefore when assembled, a field of variation can be accomplished with the least amount of tiles.


Preliminary Evolution A preliminary evolution depicting the variation within a field, in this instance the pattern is generated from 10 tile evolutions into 4 tile generations.


Surface Relief Schematic pattering in 3D, where curve becomes surface.


Surface Relief Variation Relief not only begins to vary according to the number of curves but through surface height.


Additional Variation Strategy

Final Stacking Finalized surface relief with tiling strategy.


Simulation Software aided milling simulation was vigorously implemented until desired milling conditions were met. Changes in the cutting process greatly affect resulting texture and appearance. Simulated processes and finishes were: - Horizontal Finishing - Parallel Finishing - Spiral Finishing - 3D Pocketing - Mixed Spiral with Pocketing Cutting times played an important role in determining finishes. Intricate or elaborate finishes led to longer cutting times, and smooth simple finishes were exponentially shorter.


Milling After simulations were successfully completed and the milling process began on 2� rigid insulation stock. (Generation Tile B Above)

Texas Tech University - ARCH Comprehensive Studio I - Pongratz - Fall ‘09

04

New construction of a spa/resort in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Actual theraputic processes shall aid the design, while maintaining site integrity. Final design derived from two treatments: Hot Stone massage, and Lomi Lomi massage. A pattern was created from both treatments, program and site conditions.

*Centro ComunitĂĄrio San Francisco

Texas Tech University - ARCH Studio VI - Hill/Vernooy - Summer ‘08

03

Creating an urban intervention in the San Francisco district in Puebla, Puebla, Mexico. Design is unfolded by urban disturbances, primarily on sound pollution and daylighting. Final intent was to create an urban catalyst for the San Francisco district.

Texas Tech University - ARCH Studio V - Urs Peter Flueckiger - Spring ‘08

02b

Reconstruction of burned down historical home where Albert Eintein lived during his time in Switzerland, location where he developed his Theory of Relativity. Design is based on Einstein’s non-orthagonal form of thinking, various glass types provided a diffuse, direct and indirect natural light.

Texas Tech University - ARCH Studio IV - Khun Park - Fall ‘07

01

Design of a cinema in downtown Lubbock, architectural work must be derived from three films: Blade Runner, Wings of Desire and Chunking Express. Two films were used, Wings of Desire and Blade Runner. Design is derived from two main non-human characters that “Fall” from their initial status. Ground level represents the humanity of the characters.
