On My Way

Tell everybody I’m on my way New friends and new places to see With blue skies ahead Yes I’m on my way And there’s nowhere else that I’d rather be

ADHESIVE SKINS & INSTANTIATED BLOCKAGES

01 Don’t Ask Me Why As sung by Billy Joel

Project Statement This project was developed from understanding the sequence of a biological genetic mutation. Starting with a non-architectural process and creating a physical building program allowed for the exploration of a new way of architectural thinking. Sickle cell anemia demonstrated bulging, clamping, lengthening, and other actions that can also describe architectural spaces. This has illuminated a new perspective of conceptual design.

02 Take It Easy As sung by The Eagles

Project Statement San Francisco is home to diversity, culture, but also varieties in social class. As most are aware, the homeless situation becomes more grave each year, but people do not realize that unsheltered people are no different than any other person here in the city. Homeless shelters have become the name they are given, but instead, they are sanctuaries and places of rest for those in need and should be treated as such.

DIRECTIONAL CIRCULATION

03 Make a Memory As sung by Jon Bon Jovi

Project Statement Participating in a theatrical or orchestral performance brings joy to both the performers and audience members because of the common passion for music and entertainment. Performing is as interactive as viewing, therefore creating secondary viewing platforms in this multi-dimensional theater allows for all to enjoy the show.

Site Framing - parts of the vectors extend out to the edges of the site as well as the streets to frame the boundaries of the effected context. Major Axis - these represent intersecting actions that serve as the main radial point and origination of the extending vectors Radial Movement - this serves as that main point where pieces are projecting from Primary Vectors - the main radiating actions that point outwards towards the site and context Secondary Vectors - these vectors radiate from the primary vectors and serve as additional extensions

04 Soak up the Sun As sung by Sheryl Crow

Project Statement History is a collection of chronological events that present information of the past that can teach us about the present and future. The natural environment is filled with the unexpected and can bewilder those who explore it. The combination of definitive history and unforseen natural growth can create an environment of learning and wonder that can live within us longer than the experience itself.

ACOUSTIC THRESHOLDS

05 Step in Time As sung by Julie Andrews

Project Statement Community is comprised of people from contrasting cultural backgrounds, but music is a universal language that brings people together under one common passion. The technical aspects of music fill each space as does the music that is produced, thus joining the hands of any to listen. As a musician, the understanding of collaboration is vital when attempting to create space with something so intangible and invisible to the naked eye. Course ARH 410: Tectonics & Structure

The mission District has been home to the Latino community for many decades. Over the last few years, many of these Latino families have had to move out of their homes because new people and businesses have caused the rent prices to skyrocket. As more and more original owners leave the Inner Mission, this iconic district becomes less authentic as it makes room for newer an dmore modern tenants.

Golden Gate Bridge

People coming in from Marin County and suburban areas on the west side of San Francisco want to experience San Francisco and its authenticity in the Mission District.

Bay Bridge

People coming in from Oakland and even from the southern part of the city want to be closer to the Financial District, which is where most of the businesses are located.

Project Statement Context sets the scene for what is to come in a project, whether it is considered or ignored. This context creates a sense of “home� for those in the area and has a deeper influence on this particular design. It is nearly impossible to suit the needs of such a large collection of people, but keeping specific things in mind regarding comfort and environment are crucial in the development of such a large project.

THE CUL-DE-SAC: RESHAPING SUBURBIA WITH URBAN INFLUENCES

07 Take a Chance On Me As sung by ABBA

Project Statement When something important is taken away or becomes unavailable, it is hard to understand how to move forward and accept the new change. Introducing change by providing similar qualities with a newer perspective helps change become more worthwhile and easier to adapt to. The key is not to see the new situation as different, but to see it as unique as to not be distanced from the fact that it is no longer the same as the previous.

THE CUL-DE-SAC: RESHAPING SUBURBIA WITH URBAN INFLUENCES

1. Cul-de-sac diagrams Initial study of suburbia 2. Concept model of carved out interior spaces 166



SARAH BERTING, B. ARCH

Thesis Statement Gentrification has revitalized devastated neighborhoods and districts in San Francisco, but in turn has caused housing prices to rise thus displacing those who are unable to afford living in the city. Those who fall into this category are low income households, specifically blue collar workers like our city’s first responders and teachers, among others. To attempt to resolve this issue, workplace housing will be put in place in a centralized location, such as Civic Center, that targets these workers who are vital to our city. This will allow them to live closer to work so that they may spend more time with their families rather than commuting from outside of the city. Suburban qualities that are difficult to part with, such as connection to nature, privacy, large open spaces, and the concept of the community-shaping cul-de-sac, will be merged with the urban environment, thus reshaping the typical apartment complex within the density of the Bay Area.

THE CUL-DE-SAC

Problem Gentrification has caused the rising of housing prices in San Francisco, and other dense cities, therefore making most residential areas unaffordable for low income households. The result is that people are moving into the suburbs and commuting long hours to their jobs within the city.

Opportunity Developing workplace housing in the central park of the city that serves low income blue collar workers, such as first responders and teachers who are vital to the functioning of the city, will help bring people closer to work which in turn allows them more time to spend with family rather than commuting long hours.

Response Merging suburban qualities that people prefer with the efficiency of the urban environment will help create a more diverse community that people can easily adapt to as they move closer to work and the culture of the city.

Technique Incorporating gathering space, natural elements, and similar “single-family home� qualities will connect people to suburbia with the convenience of the city right outside their front door.

To my family Through the tough and memorable times, we have exchanged love and created memories that will last a lifetime. I have loved and appreciated the outpouring support you’ve provided me, the stable footing in which to accomplish what I’ve achieved, and everything else in between which has made me who I am today. To Mom and Dad, to Garrett, Katie, and Sam, to the Johnsons, to my camp family, to everyone in between, thank you for literally everything. To my friends To Emily, Jackie, Jenna, and Amanda; you have supported me since primary school. To Eleni, you have shown me the importance of friendship and its rewarding features through the good and the bad. And to my school friends I have made over the last five years; I appreciate all of your support and the bonds we have shared along this journey. Both in and out of studio, I have been able to rely on you for the last five years and beyond. Now it’s my turn to return the favor as we all become successful in our talents and passions. To my instructors I truly wouldn’t be who I am or where I am today without the guidance from everyone I have been studying under in my educational career. Many have helped me uncover my passions within architecture and I could never name them all. Shruti Dixit, my ARH 110 instructor and the first person I met at the AAU School of Architecture, gave me the foundation I have drawn upon to get me to where I am today. Along the way, some major influencers for me have been Bradel Engel, Carol Buhrmann, Doron Serban, Sameena Sitabkhan, and my advisors Jacqueline Ho and Ann Gaffney. They have been there every step of the way and have provided nothing but honesty and support these last five years or architecture school.
