MASK OF IMAGES

In vein of the modernist legacy of the autonomy project and the subsequent movements thereafter such as Post-Modernism and De-construction both seeking pluralistic expression, each movement postulated a question of its’ age and we are left with an impending question of how does architecture operate in current times? Radical concepts in Post-Modernism included complexity and contradiction, ornament and multiple articulation, collage and juxtaposition, layering and ambiguity, multivalence and double coding. Architecture’s recent obsessions with the image, the icon and the iconographic symbol are overt manifestations of accelerations of Post-Modernism. It identifies a world by its flatness creating a difference between façade and interior, an issue of lobotomy raised by Koolhaas in Delirious New York. A project within Delirious New York offers a great illustration of the modalities of Koolhaas’s method in “The City of the Captive Globe”. If Koolhaas’s Captive Globe is an “ideological laboratory” that reduces the city as a catalogue of avant-garde movements, surely in the end, the Globe can be considered as an emblematic incubator that encapsulates a world of fantastical combinations, as a lexicon of flat icons creating an abstract and potentially infinite archipelago of “Cities in the City”. With the advent of Koolhaas as an influential figure, it becomes quintessential to update the Captive Globe as a catalogue of Koolhaas’s projects and to speculate the role of flatness as a potential mask that generates speculative architecture.

DESIGN INNOVATION CENTER ‘What is a design innovation center?’ HDR and P&G partnered up with Univesity of Cincinnati to research and answer the basic principles and ideas of an innovation center. The task of defining and designing a concept around innovation and connecting the idea back to a univesity campus, by linking industry and academia together. Three phases were considered: Part One: Identify different strategies and typologies that might be characterized as a Design Innovation Center. Part Two: Potential sites on the campus that analyze the idea of a Design Innovation Center. Part Three: The study of prototypes through the idea of innovation. Part 1 - The Gateway

An architectural promenade composed of a custonizable modular steel armature to facilitate innovation. The Gateway redefines the entrance to the University of Cincinnati as a formal joint between the University and the community. Its strategic placement on the campus also links the north side of campus with the south side of campus and capitalizes on an existing major pedestrian pathway. The architectural promenade allows pedestrians to visually engage with the work happening around them, moving through the building vertically through hybrid spaces designed for collaboration and innovation. Programmatic adjacencies are strategically placed to activate the space as the building transitions from public to private. Modular units are deployed within a steel armature, providing an infrastructure for companies to manipulate as needed to create collaboration, individual, lab, or communal spaces.

Part 2 - The Map

Through survey and investigation, the complexity of a campus, such as the University of Cincinnati, becomes apparent. While all information is important, the findings were organized in layers. In manifestation, the layers of information were stored on a base and layers of stacked acrylic. The base illustrated geographic and contextual relationships, while the layers define resources and connectivity. The information rich map allow a user to observe, understand, and engage the research. This combined system allows for an understanding through both the touch and the mind, as the wheel engages in movement.

23


Part 3 - Protoyping Investigations from earlier studyies manifest themselves as built ‘prototypes’. A column system was created to frame the presentation and allow for future versatility. One side of the column is held together by a series of spaced brass standoffs, or solids. Then, the other side of the column is held together by a series of brass flairs, or voids. The centers of each column reveal the lightness, whether that be through the incorporation of solids or voids that emit LED light. Among other prosthetics, a series of horizontals hold versatile presentation boards, which attach to the brass solids. A pin system composed of two magnetic caps and centering pin attaches two acrylic panels to a main structural board in the middle. The magnetic caps allow the panels to be disassembled, and the center content can be modified. The combination of flexible magnets and securing pins is what makes the system successful.

REVIVAL OF FARNSWORTH HOUSE The new Farnsworth House has been created to a more sustainable design, as it creates a more well insulated walls for passive solar designs. It addresses shading with a pitch roof with multiple cantilevers over the sides of the house. The pitch roof lets the summer sun bounce off the roof has it also lets out hot air as it rises with an opening on the top, creating an stack effect. There is a natural ventation system has cool air is let into the main with the sunroom as it creates an isolated gain from the sun. During the day, the sunspace collects solar radition and distributes much of the heat to the rest of the building. Thermal mass stores much of the heat for nighttime use. At night, the sunspace must be sealed from the main building to keep from becoming an energy drain on the main building. The type of architectural lighting that is used in this house is cove lighting on the top and bottom of the spaces. In the main space the lighting is situated on top of the cabinets and shield from view as it illuminates the ceilling. It is on both sides of the interior space connector. On top of the kitchen cabinets, as light is projected on top the ceilling and then reflected down. The cove lighting creates indirect lighting from the ceiling as the fixtures are hidden on top the cabinets. It creates a soft, diffused ambient light for the room.

The sunroom also has cove lighting but postioned on the bottom of the floor and hidden from view. The light illuminates the floor and then it bounce back up to the space. Creating a soft feel to the sunroom room at night. Both space use fluorescent lighting to create more light and less heat, which reduces enegy.

RIVER NORTH River North creates an urban district that promotes healthy, connected, and local living. The site is situated around the brand new Nashville Sounds baseball stadium just north of capitol lawn and downtown. River North is designed to extend the culture and excitement of downtown Nashville towards the new stadium, activating the district and connecting the successful farmers’ market and Bicentennial Park to the underutilized riverfront. River North is both a destination and a neighborhood. It blends community localism with state pride and offers young professionals, families, and retirees with myriad opportunities to live, work, and play. Programming of River North is based on what the community wants. Currently Sulfer Dells has an active west side. The site is connected by a green way. The green corridor will connect the east and the west sides of the site. To connect RiverNorth as a district, pathways must lead to destinations. A mixed-use district with a variety of mid-tier retailers and local restaurants creates a sense of place next to the riverfront. These restaurants will source many food products directly from the redesigned farmers’ market, creating a truly local and synergistic neighborhood. A healthy community connects and activates outdoor spaces to provide year-round recreation. By reimagining the Music City Greenway bike path system, RiverNorth boasts an inlet canal running alongside the bike path and pedestrian walkway.

This canal is designed to accommodate canoes, kayaks, and paddleboats, providing residents and visitors with exciting outdoor recreation that appeals to every age group. The streetscape of Sulphur Dell is reimagined in RiverNorth as green-scaped, connected, and pedestrian-friendly. Strategically located streets have been kept or added to allow for service access and parking for residential and office buildings,

but many are removed in preference of pedestrian paths. Parking garages have been incorporated into other uses and hidden from primary pedestrian connections to promote a vibrant and transparent ground-level experience. Bio swales and sustainable streetscaping have been incorporated into RiverNorth as secondary flood prevention and stormwater management strategies. Before - Streets
