PRIVA SEE HOUSE

UCLA AUD 415 Studio Winter Quarter 2014 Instructor: Ben Refuerzo Software used: Rhino Vray The comprehensive studio, otherwise known as the Steel House Studio, focuses on the use of steel as a building material for a small scale building. The project is designed to teach all of the elements of building design and construction; including details, structural systems, envelope, and hvac considerations. Deliverables included detail drawings and a construction drawing set of dimensioned and labeled drawings. The design of the project began by exploring the idea of privacy’s polar opposite - publicity - as a generator of form and space. The house was conceived of as a machine to publicize and display the resident’s life and lifestyle to its surroundings. The challenge was to design a house that did not simply project its internals outwards by way of glass and transparency, but to thoughtfully display its interior in subtle and unexpected ways. This is a house for an exhibitionist - one who wishes to see and be seen at all times. The architect living in the house chooses not to protect his privacy or shield his life from the street and urban fabric as so many people do. Instead the house stands tall and displays its contents to all those who drive and walk by. In this way, the architect can proudly display his lifestyle, and also advertise his work and business. Sectionally and in plan, the house continues to candidly display the inner lifestyle of its residents in unexpected and unconventional ways.

GRID INTERRUPTED UCLA AUD 411 Studio

Winter Quarter 2013 Instructor: Mohamed Sharif Software used: Rhino The 411 Studio is known in the curriculum to be the structure studio. With that spirit in mind, the project focused on structure, the grid, and the way in which structure can inform architectural design. The program called for an art gallery that would be used for a two week period per year. The rest of the year required only a portion of the total gallery space, much like the Frieze Art Fair in London. With structure as the main focus, a grid was created upon which all other design decisions would be based. A triangular grid was established in response to the site’s unusual triangular shape.

View of Approach to Entry

The concept of the building was based on movement. Since the site’s shape was formed by vectors of car movment, the shape of the building would respond to that and encourage human movment. As such, a perimeter block typology was used, within which a looping promenade of gallery space would be housed. The courtyard space at the center was envisioned not as a large open space, but an atrium building that would house all supporting program.

CALIFORNIA SECTION UCLA AUD 401 STUDIO Spring Quarter 2013 Instructor: Neil Denari Software used: Rhino Vray The Tech Core Studio focused on the design and construction of the wall. The quarter began with an in-depth precedent analysis of a post-war, California modern house: The Chemosphere. With information gathered from the case study; including ideas and concepts of the wall as it relates to its own design and construction, as well as the design of space that it encloses, the design team began conceptualizing and designing space starting with the wall. A concept of panorama and the blurring of the boundary between inside and out was used to generate the design of the wall. Much like the Chemosphere, the views created by the wall and the fenestration are extended outward by the removal of the foreground. While the Chemosphere’s wall includes a beveled lower half that prevents views below, thus enhancing views outwards, this wall contains floor to ceiling glass and a sloping floor that emphasizes the sensation of floating and outward extension. As a material and construction study, the wall is proposed to be constructed of carbon fiber in a monocoque system. The skin provides resistance and corrugated carbon fiber between the skin reinforces the structure.

Robotic Arm Rotational Extents 600

To attempt to answer this question of robotics in architecture and their use and focus, the project utilized two KUKA KR150 robots in creating a performance of robotic motion. Two objects, mirrored models of the Gaspra and Ceres asteroids, were attached to the robots, and synthetic orbits were designed and set into motion.

The seminar was premised on the idea that robots today are seen as tools to expedite the construction of objects or full architecture. The robot itself is seen as the performer, the object to be viewed and applauded. However, the question was set forth asking whether or not the robot is the thing to be observed or if the focus should be put on its actions.

The tech seminar, titled Two Golems, explored the relationship of robotics and architecture. It was positioned in parallel to the myth of the Golem. In Hebrew texts the Golem was described as a humanoid assemebled from disparate, inanimate parts. This form was given life and used to resolve issues; it was the duty and actions of the Golem that were paramount. However, overtime and evidenced in following texts, the actions of the Golem became less significant, and the Golem itself and the animate life given to an inanimate form became the focus.

Ceres and Gaspra Formal Analysis


DOWNTOWN LIBRARY

UNLV 382 Third Year Studio Spring Semester 2011 Instructor: Kevin Kemner

Software used: Sketchup Kerkythea The purpose of this project was to design an urban library in the heart of the developing arts district in Las Vegas. The concept was to reflect on the structure of books and their narratives within, and the similarity to architecture. Spatially, the library and the program are organized like a narrative arc; non-linear and with moments of criticality at a variety of locations both horizontally in plan and vertically in section. Formally, the library combines three strands, reflecting the three different social groups of the growing arts district, and bends and twists the strands in contextual response to the site.
