UNDERGRADUATE THESIS: BRIDGING THE OLYMPIC LEGACY

RANDSTAD

FALL 2012 & SPRING 2013 | 32 WEEKS AMSTERDAM

Mega-events such as the Olympic Games have both tangible and intangible legacies. The resources, opportunities, and potential for global impact that the Games provide can be focused by architects and urban planners and used to advance the major planning initiatives on the agenda of the host city. “ Creating sustainable legacies is a fundamental commitment of the Olympic Movement. Every city that hosts the Olympic Games becomes a temporary steward of the Olympic Movement. It is a great responsibility. It is also a great opportunity. Host cities capture worldwide attention. Each has a once-in-a-lifetime chance to showcase the celebration of the human spirit. And each creates a unique set of environmental, social and economic legacies that can change a community, a region, and a nation forever. “

THE NETHERLANDS WITHOUT DIKES - IN RED

RANDSTAD

- Jacques Rogge | Int’l Olympic Committee President

The Netherlands is vying for a chance to host the 2028 Olympic Games. Amsterdam hosted the Games previously in 1928, therefore marking the 100-year anniversary. Although conceived monocentrically, Amsterdam has seen a shift from city to a polycentric urban region in the last one hundred years. The North Sea Canal creates a divider between the city center and the North district, historically inhabited by immigrants and industrial port workers. The large industries have been moving out of the area and the Northern banks of the NSC have become a series of warehouses that house artistic, yet individualized, revitalization efforts. The proposed Olympic Park exists within the urban void of the former Amsterdam port. More developed land is needed close to the city center and the North district is the ideal underutilized location. The park continues the lines of the original semi-radial historic city plan to the mentally and physically separated North borough. The park serves as a new city node during the Games and afterwards in the legacy phase.

The Olympic Bridge | An Architectural Connection At the heart of the Olympic Park is the Olympic Bridge. It spans the North Sea Canal to connect the two halves of the Olympic Park, and also to provide the first fixed connection for pedestrians and bicyclists across the water.

DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS

The bridge is more than a path; it acts as a public plaza for shared observations of Olympic events, as a place for reflection upon the city and as a meeting point of the cultural ideals embedded in the Olympic motto. The swing cable-stayed design is inspired by the flame of the Olympic Torch, which first debuted at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympiad. In an effort to create a minimal but striking silhouette against the Amsterdam skyline, a tensile cable network was combined with a steel rod structural system for the pylon. The intricate geometries of the linear members create a dynamic visual play for observers and users alike. Fluidity in curvature between all the structural parts creates an iconic image for the Olympic Games and the Olympic City.

ICD / ITKE RESEARCH PAVILION 2012 SUMMER 2012 | 20 WEEKS PART OF A 9-PERSON STUDENT TEAM AT THE UNIVERSITY OF STUTTGART, GERMANY This interdisciplinary project investigates the possible interrelation between biomimetic design strategies and novel processes of robotic production. The research focused on the material and morphological principles of arthropods’ exoskeletons as a source of exploration for a new composite construction paradigm in architecture. At the core of the project is the development of an innovative robotic fabrication process within the context of the building industry based on filament winding of carbon and glass fibres and the related computational design tools and simulation methods. A key aspect of the project was to transfer the fibrous morphology of the biological role model to fiber-reinforced composite materials, the anisotropy of which was integrated from the start into the computer-based design and simulation processes, thus leading to new tectonic possibilities in architecture. The integration of the form generation methods, the computational simulations and robotic manufacturing, specifically allowed the development of a high performance structure: the pavilion requires only a shell thickness of four millimetres of composite laminate while spanning eight metres.

The abstracted morphological principles of locally adapted fibre orientation in the lobster shell constitute the basis for the computational form generation, material design and manufacturing process of the pavilion. The high efficiency and functional variation of the cuticle is due to a specific combination of exoskeletal form, fiber orientation and matrix. These principles were applied to the design of a robotically fabricated shell structure based on a fibre composite system in which the resinsaturated glass and carbon fibres were continuously laid by a robot, resulting in a compounded structure with custom fiber orientation. Since the construction of a complete positive formwork is fairly unsuitable for the building industry, the project aimed to reduce the positive form to a minimum. As a consequence, the fibers were laid on a temporary lightweight, linear steel frame with defined anchor points between which the fibers were tensioned. Despite its considerable size and span, the semi-transparent skin of the pavilion weighs less than 320kg and reveals the system’s structural logic through the spatial arrangement of the carbon and glass fibers. The synthesis of novel modes of computational and material design, digital simulation and robotic fabrication allows both the exploration of a new repertoire of architectural possibilities and the development of extremely lightweight and materially efficient structures.

URBAN VOID (DEF) : AN UNDERUTILIZED SPACE CREATING A FRACTURE IN THE URBAN FABRIC The residential scheme for 81 East Wacker Drive seeks to create a vertical neighborhood that engages its environment and fosters community interaction, both in the public and private realm. Living in such a high-density environment calls for the exploration of ways to integrate the luxuries of the horizontal residential typologies, such as greenery, sidewalks to chat with neighbors, and a certain degree of privacy and spatial freedom.

The key typological shift comes in the form of community spaces littered throughout the 19-storey 18-m wide site. The public community spaces are in the form of a Wintergarten, which occupies the ground and first floor at Wacker Drive and reaches out to Michigan Avenue through a sidewalk extension over the service alley to the East. This interactive space is repeated at a more intimate scale in three private residential nodes, each comprising an amenity level, a central atrium, and four to six multi-level units each layed out for maximum light infiltration. The Wintergarten and interconnected nodal atrium scheme is read as a “green ribbon,” which weaves together all the complexities of the site: the residential spaces, the community nodes, the public passage, and the urban context.

OPTIMUM ORIENTATION BASED ON AVERAGE DAILY INCIDENT RADIATION ON A VERTICAL SURFACE CONCLUSION: 182.5 DEGREES

The internship portion of Chicago Studio called for an analysis of how the architectural process could benefit from incorporating environmental analysis earlier. The previous project was examined in the areas of climate and context, wind and ventilation, solar radiation and daylighting. The software utilized was Weather Tool, Vasari, Ecotect, and Radiance. In response to the solar radiation analysis of the existing design, the facade was altered to filter the most sunlight into the amenity itnteraction levels. The series of atriums now facilitates natural wind flow by channeling the prominent North-East winds from the lowest node to the upper node. Amenity levels and individual units on both sides of the building were measured for their daylighting levels and changes to the facade and unit layouts resulted in more natural daylighting throughout the day. At the conclusion of the studies, we presented our thoughts on improving the design process to incorporate more environmental analysis software to the office. The more architects are familiar with the tools, their simplicity and their impact, the better the early design process can incorporate environmental considerations, so that it is more than just an after thought.

INTERACTIVE ARCHITECTURE I: HOSIERY FALL 2010 | 1 WEEK WORKSHOP WITH COURTNEY HORST & YI YAO HOSIERY is an architecture combining mechanics, kinetics, robotics, programming, scripting and interaction. Activating encased light sensors creates both a digital and analog response. Grasshopper serves as the mechanism between the two undulating surfaces. The light sensors over which a person moves his fingers are read and the information is transferred to the toggles in Grasshopper. Depending on the amount of light each sensor reads, one of two things can happen: points along a curve in rhino move up or down, or motors rotate back and forth, triggering the gears. This creates a digital and analog read of the information. The rhino model moves a curved surface based on the points from Grasshopper in the same fashion that rows of suspended cylinders wave up and down. The grid as a volume is augmented in rows – a free-flowing mass moving as a curve. Grasshopper, Arduino, and circuitry were employed to make this project a reality. The process unraveled new possibilities for design in the architectural realm when combined with disciplines such as engineering and physics. A new dynamic aspect is added to the fundamentals of design work, broadening the opportunities for exploration and thought.

INTERACTIVE ARCHITECTURE II: QUARANTINE SPRING 2011 | 1 WEEK WORKSHOP WITH CHASE DANIEL & SARAH DURKIN Although we may not consciously think about it, the sense of touch and sight are strongly correlated. We can see a texture and process the surface without ever touching it. In the same way, if we are blindfolded and touch a texture, we can create a visual image through the sense of touch, without seeing it. So what happens when the sense of touch is isolated from sight and augmented into another form? A new way to experience spaces is actualized and a new environment is formed. Quarantine creates this experience for the individual. The user places their hand within the enclosure, removing the visual connection. They blindly interact with the pieces in the space. Their interaction is then mapped onto another surface to reconnect the senses. What is mapped on the surface depends on how the user interacts with pods. A visual image of what is inside the box is formed in the mind of the user, but a different visual map is projected. Circles appear and change direction in correspondence to the interplay of users with the embedded pressure sensors. Here the sense of sight and touch that wish to couple are quarantined.

CHICAGO FINANCIAL PLAZA SPRING 2011 | 8 WEEKS

The city’s financial district lies to the north of the site, hinting at a border between urban and suburban Chicago. As the markets of today evolve from physical to electronic communication, the trading floor must also evolve. A degree of transparency is introduced. The public can catch glimpses of the happenings through glass openings in the ceiling of the trading floor. Broadcasting relays information via electronic and online boards, with a large screen attached to the lower northern and eastern facades. Offices and employee lounges make up the upper portion of the tower, where free circulation makes up the outer edges of the floor plates. A space frame transfers the weight of the hanging lower and supported upper floors to fourteen massive columns, reducing the amount of columnar interruptions on the trading floor.

FALL 2010 | 8 WEEKS FLOOR 6 PLAN

From the vertical field study, a tower is created that accentuates verticality. The structural grid arrangement is pushed to the exterior as internally bowing masses at the corners as floor plates. A single vast atrium between these four masses focuses all horizontal connections inward. An extreme vertical move happens when the four masses open to the sky, covered only by a glass ceiling that is supported by a tensioned steel cable system. Internal verticality can be experienced from any point in the tower, due to the openness to the atrium at all levels. Horizontal members include sky bridges that connect the office towers, providing the opportunity to explore the grand atrium. The towers meet in the middle and the contraction and expansion of the form gives the viewer a different experience from every vantage point. The structural columns bow out with the shape of the floor plates, adding to the perspective angles. A vertical view is the basis of a communal working environment.

HOUSE AS A TEMPLE SPRING 2010 | 8 WEEKS

A writer lives in seclusion in the middle of the Atacama Desert, Chile. The house is built of concrete and adobe brick, common to the architecture of the region. The cardinal directions determine the lines of sight that extend through the dwelling and form the four secondary spaces: the bedroom, the kitchen, the bathroom, and the entry way. Each of these four is cocooned in elevation by an interrupted oval shape, defining the space. The most sacred space is in the center of the home, at the meeting point between the two intersecting perpendicular axes. This primary room for living is set down into the ground to signify a shift in the hierarchy of spaces, and walls of bookshelves line the interior of the oval. These bookshelves contain four hidden doors which lead to the tertiary spaces comprising storage, laundry and mechanical equipment.

SUSTAINABLE HIGHRISE AMSTERDAM FALL 2011 | 3 DAY WORKSHOP AT IIT WITH YEA JEE HAN, NICOLE HOFFMAN, & NICOLAS REINKE

Located on the edge of an otherwise low-rise city center, The Windmill Business Hotel lies right on the A10 highway loop. This Dutch windy city is defined by its series of historic canals, North Sea Canal ports and proximity to the Isle Meer, averaging a wind speed of 8-15 m/s. ENERGY AND FORMAL CONCEPT The main goal is harnessing the wind energy. An amorphous shape is formally derived from wind flow and defined by a dia-grid that winds its way up the building and channels the wind into Darreus turbines through glass insets acting as spoilers. The turbines are designed to run around 32dB and can react to wind from all directions. Inside the dia-grid lies the double layer facade that allows for natural ventilation with operable windows. These turbines and spoilers occur in the top half of the structure to the North-West and the SouthEast to capture the prevailing South-West winds. The energy created by the turbines is circulated throughout the high-rise for heating and electricity. A heat exchanger that extends into the water provides additional heating. The minimal Amsterdam sun-rays are maximized by including a central atrium that functions as a light well in the center of the building, therefore reducing floor plate size and allowing light to protrude deeper into the rooms.

A MUSEUM OF WILDFIRE SPRING 2011 | 1 WEEK COMPETITION WITH HANNAH CATLOW & KELLEY FOLTS

Formally derived from the vertical extrusion of five geometric shapes, the twisted form emerges upwards from the scorched ground to an overall height of 150 feet. One sliver of clear glass overlooks the valley while the remaining faces are transluscent black glass. This new form within the landscape is supported by an internal steel structural tree that converges together and branches apart in conjunction with the verticies of the geometric shapes.

RECONSTRUCTING THE FALLEN MINARET SULTAN HASSAN MOSQUE, CAIRO SUMMER 2010 | 3 DAYS WITH XIN FU, ALLISON MILLER & ALI SABAAWY The physical character of the mosque is expressive and monumental, reminding the people of the prestige of the Mamluk dynasty. The height and simplicity of the façade reflect the mosqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prominent position next to the Citadel. The grand portal acts as a welcoming transition from the urban exterior to the personal and reflective interior. Two of the four planned minarets were designed to flank the entry, but the first collapsed before the second was erected, and the plan was abandoned. The minarets, portal, and dome are all strong vertical elements, which emphasize the connection of the Islamic faith to Allah. The designs of the fallen minaret and its partner were lost over time, so the reconstruction called for research within the Library of Alexandria. Historic comparisons and creative collaboration led to the compilation of the featured design. MY ROLE: site plan | section | render patterns | research | presentation of project and ideas

URBAN MAPPING: WICKER PARK, CHICAGO FALL 2011 | 2 WEEKS WITH CHRISTA WOOD & MICHAEL KULIKOWSKI Wicker Park is located northwest of downtown Chicago. The neighborhood is an eclectic, art-gallery filled area that meshes artists, hipsters and yuppies. The old and new come together in this unique, gritty and European inspired neighborhood. With soaring real estate prices and shifting demographics, the neighborhood is becoming more transient, less diverse, and far more affluent. Despite the flourishing commercial corridors and trendy spirit, there are problem areas in the form of urban voids. The main areas of focus are along the commercial corridors. The residential areas are mostly fully developed, historically protected, and do not need much attention. Since Chicago is a car-centered city, Wicker Park sees several of its corridors being dominated by the automobile, and are not as friendly to the biker or pedestrian. In such a strong cultural community, walkability is essential and reducing car-traffic and congestion are the backbones of the proposal.

PROFESSIONAL WORK TYMOFF+MOSS ARCHITECTS SUMMER 2011 | NORFOLK, VA

SL RASCH GMBH: SPECIAL & LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURES JAN - AUG 2012 | STUTTGART, GERMANY

At the small educational and civic architecture office in downtown Norfolk, I was exposed to a wide range of describe working there. combine tasks within the design process. with FromT+M? design details to construction drawings, I learned the basic operations of an architectural office. Several new projects also saw me involved with preliminary design brainstorming sessions, including an amphitheater and pavilion for Old Dominion University (seen below) and an iFly indoor skydiving center proposal. www.tmarchitects.com

The international office located in Stuttgart focuses on lightweight construction based on natural form finding techniques. Much of the work is based in the Middle East, and most of my time was spent on projects involved with the expansion of the Al-Masjid Al-Haram Grand Mosque of Makkah (Mecca). My main projects were the Mobile Mataf temporary walkway around the Kaaba (fig. C-G), movable domes of the mosque expansion (fig. J), and various membrane tent and umbrella designs (fig. A, B, H). Tasks included rendering, ornament and pattern design, lighting design, construction drawings, tent form generation, and 3D modeling. www.sl-rasch.de
