Sectional Scale

Project Statement- Olivera street ( Los Angeles) space is small scale and there are hug sream of people there(warm public space/ human). On the conrary, outside street is big scale and low stream of people( cold public space /car scale). This weir thing catch up my attention and interested me.So I am thinking about how my building could do to mediate this black and white space. So I follow the scale of outside and inside street and typology of environment, making sectional triangle design and definate different space( cold and warm, more different level public and private). And another intersting thing is how i treat the exiting builind, my attitude is to do now touch is rather than wipe it out.

Vertical Library Marshall School

The concept Library is extracted form the progrom of the school which we think is most important program in the school. And because of the special location of the site, the school have small site area. The development direction of this site is Vertical. So the concept is coming--- Vertical Library. And from the analysiis, we set rule that the front is more open space, the back is more private space. And the Vertical Library is in the middle. In order to be an entity, the library space/program will be influence by the front and the back programs and vertical circulation. And the form of the Library is extracted from the context and each of volume have different relationship with other volume, these will make space more interesting. Circulation as surface, Circulation as volume, Circulation as space, Program influence volume's transparency, Program influence volume's function.......All thes are very interesting for me. And envelop is conceptually project the middle volume to the building surface, the pattern on the envelop is designed basing on the circulation view and sun.

Original Volume

Exaggeration Volume

EXAGGERATION My precedence Rosenthal Center have two main concept, one is Jigsaw Puzzle and another one is Urban Carpet. Jigsaw Puzzle illustrate the complex arrangement of differently-sized concrete volumes that house the gallery space of the center and void space. The logic behind this massing strategy is that as contemporary art can take a variety of forms and sizes, contemporary art galleries must be equally as varies. Urban Carpet bring the fabric of the city with the museum’s walls. However, from the analysis, I critique Rosenthal Center for 3 point: 1. The exhibition volume and inside space are too similar. 2. The vision effect and function of Urban Carpet is not strong enough to introduce city fabric and people to come in. 3. The relationship between volume and volume, volume and carpet and circulation in volume and carpet are too weak. From this process, I find one word can deal with all these weakness: Exaggeration. The definition of Exaggeration: 1. Exaggeration is are presentation of something in an excessive manner. 2. A statement that represents something as better of worse than it really is. For my words: Exaggerate is kind of like defamiliarization and out of touch with reality, but still have relationship with original object. For example, everyone has their similar face feature: nose, mouth,ears, eyes and eyebrow. In cartoon, face feature always be exaggerated. Mouth can be huge compare with other face features. Eyes can detach from face. Even the facial features’ position can be rearranged on the face. However, all these change should always relate to original one. So for architecture’s Exaggeration, I thinks it should find the core rule behind the architecture and then base on these rules we can exaggerate the scale, relationship, form, material, function and so on. And for the Rosenthal Center, I find the control line in plan as main rule. The control line make space, form,circulation and function of the museum. I change the control line so that all the things change.I exaggerate the control line to reshape the volume, such as enlarge angles, add more control line, rotate line and add line. So the exhibition volume and inside space change, even the relationship will be more interesting. Volume intersect with volume, volume in the volume, volume merge volume. And the circulation will also be changed by control lines. And for the carpet, I define the wrap as one of the exaggeration words for carpet to introduce city fabric and people. I see the circulation as surface, volume. So the carpet will follow the surface of circulation to create an interesting system.
