Portfolio of work

Seven projects have been chosen for this portfolio; five projects completed in design studios at the University of Kansas and two competitions completed while an intern for Odile Decq. The projects chosen have influenced my development as a designer that provide solutions to connect with our contemporary culture and engage with the people using them. Each project is rooted in a process that explores what is possible within each project assigned. I approach the design of each project by contemplating its connection and value to those that will use the spaces. Within each project I search for latent opportunities that remain hidden to others but can add tremendous value to a design proposal. Each project reflects a commitment between design intentions and the people that will use them, giving purpose to design strategies to insure each project aims beyond the materials that could be used to construct each project. Behind the formal resolution is a design process that includes many different strategies, rules, systems, algorithms and sometimes an excel spreadsheet to develop design separately from being directly tied to its form. I have explored many different methods to ensure the process is unrestricted and exists to serves the unique characteristics of each design challenge. As design methods have expanded and developed my most recent projects have incorporated several dynamic organization systems and have allowed for high levels of flexibility to exist throughout the design of the project. I continue to explore design methods and systems that utilize dynamic solutions that actively adapt to changing conditions and allow for the project to continue to adapt to the environment after construction has been completed.

Rigor makes use of methods and strategies for developing, assembling and executing a design to formal resolution. During my time in school I have pursued opportunity and the limits of design to maximize the academic environment for questioning the foundations of design and architecture.

With determination to realize original design intent, details were coordinated with agility to develop them into the design solution. I proved valuable in my ability to take on complex problems using flexible negotiation of my focus on several different parts of the project and tasks with the design team to realize a project through a shared interest in achievement.

The work presented does not attempt to explain design process, but serves as an introduction to initiate further discussion. I hope that I may pique your interest enough to initiate the opportunity to expand upon how I can contribute my potential as a new asset to the agency.

I enjoyed the challenging, creative and international collaborative of people that shared with me similar levels of high energy and ambitions.

Contribution

Personal involvement in the project focused on executing and representing the forms that were being created through drawings and study models. Modeling was performed in Rhino and included many design iterations which helped fellow designers on the team visualize the project as a whole as we worked on the different elements of the project in 2D. Other tasks included creating day lighting studies and creating the final 3D model to be rendered by Labtop.

Collective Apartments

Pentania Housing development

The concept for the social housing blocks is to create visual variety using three different apartment types in different configurations within each six story building. Strict regulations and restrictions for social housing in France guided the development of three apartment modules that would be identical in plan but versatile to allow for many different floor plate configurations to be achieved without the structure or vertical ducts deviating from a single design that remained identical on every floor of the building.

Lille, France Agency of Odile Decq & Benoit Cornette Fall 2009 Design Competition, Winner CLIENT Fonciere Logèment, Cirmad AREA 10,500 m2 (113,000 ft 2) STATUS Competition Winner, construction to begin Fall 2010 Design team Odile Decq, Gilles Ghery, Olivier Bacin,Tyler Selby

Three apartment modules were developed, a single bedroom apartment, a two bedroom apartment, and a three bedroom apartment. I was personally assigned to develop and then standardize the three different floor plan modules, I begin laying out each apartment floor plan. I worked on developing the three plans to satisfy all the logistical, formal and code restrictions that were required.

View of Collective Apartments along the street

A housing competition for Lille, France, the project includes five social housing blocks, seventeen single family houses, underground parking and a shared green space in the center.

Contribution I was personally involved in the entire process beginning with concept development to the delivery of competition boards to the client. While I contributed in every part of the project, I was responsible for developing the floor plans of the collective apartments and the final resolution of the form for the individual houses.

The multilingual working environment allowed me to improve my communications skills and my ability to accurately interpret other’s design intentions and to represent my own work using a variety of methods that did not hinge on having a shared language to communicate.

This project allowed me to gain experience in the complete design competition process. I worked in a tight group setting with the design lead of Odile Decq and two other designers. The environment was structured so each of us could submit new ideas and solutions to any problem on the project. Competition Winner

Increasing Accessibility

Collective Housing - Ground Floor Cropped view of Entry Spaces 1:100

Problem The central trash collection room required two points of entry with different floor heights. Trash collectors required access at the street level (0 cm) and the residents accessed the space slightly higher (+60 cm). Typically, this is solved by a set of steps to descend to street level before accessing the trash bins. Solution Split the room to accommodate both needs of access, keeping residents at their ground floor level (+60 cm), and the trash containers stay at street level. With a depressed trash container the resident’s are only required to lift objects 50 cm off the floor to clear the lip to dispose of their waste. Accessibility A slight alteration to the angle of the trash containers allowed ample space for both wheelchairs and trash cans to navigate in and out of the room with ease. design review Odile Decq recognized this intervention as something that they had never seen or thought of for a trash collection room. It was a new solution to a passively accepted problem. Peter Bahlman remarked I had “become more French than the French.” Housing Development / ODBC / Tylerselby@me.com / 816.885.6862


INDIVIDUAL HOUSES I was was responsible responsiblefor forthe the exterior exterior form form of the of the houses. houses.

Initial form study

Evolving through an evolving dialog of critique with Odile Decq, design was a process of refinement equally influenced by what was said and what wasn’t said to determine focus and direction. A form was developed to allow each house to be recognized individually while also cooperating with neighboring houses, clustered, to create a cohesive form that contributed to the site plan. The final design allows each facade to be recognized individually while also forming a repeatable pattern, and a cohesive street front.

View of Individual houses along the street

Personal Courtyards The design for the individual houses focuses inwards to place a private courtyard in each home because shared walls between neighboring houses severely limit the ability to have exterior windows. An established central courtyard floor plan and clustered arrangement of houses became a starting point for designing the final exterior form.

City of light Urban centre Development Central Warsaw, Poland University of Kansas

Spring 2010 Proposal for mayor of warsaw AREA 861,109 m2 (9,268,910 ft 2) STUDIO CRITIC Wojciech Lesnikowski Design Team Tyler Selby, Bob Defries, Michele Aldrich

Working at the urban scale of a Soviet created mega block, design followed a typological and formal investigation for development of a new, hyper-use “city center” for the heart of central Warsaw. Large scale concepts are inspired by the historical idea of Grande Visions that utilize larger than life concepts; such as Baron Haussmann and Napoleon III’s will to transform the streets of Paris into a series of grand boulevards.

A single, unified vision informed the design programmatically and formally to create specific areas within the site that would be intensified with defined functions and density to create a highly active center. Each building’s unique identity communicates both semiotically and symbolically creating multi-directional dialogs between buildings on the site and the people of Warsaw.

Four identical towers equal saving time and money but it comes at the expense of visual character. Maximizing the economy of difference meant breaking down the tower to the last divisible unit, the office space module. Using the repetition of the office module, difference would be achieved throughout the towers.

The generic quality allows the office towers to function as rows of towers that together act as a screen to blend in with the urban context while also obscuring view of the Soviet tower to become a backdrop for the other hotel and residential towers on the site. Individual office spaces remain personally identifiable from a distance while remaining anonymously part of the total composition for everyone else.

An office that primarily provides work for other offices within the tower could imagine a vertical thread of adjacent modules that act as a vein through the tower.

Exterior Facade of panels

Three different panels are used to reflect the interior form and combine to form different qualities of reflection and transparency. A clear glass panel is used starting at the base of the tower. Building up the tower, clear panels are replaced with tinted panels that are replaced with reflective panels further up the building facades.

Sharing the Green

Tower is the Park

Working from the typology of the residential tower that was required to exist within a large urban park, the design became a question of how the two typologies could accentuate the other instead of competing for land and visibility. A two-way gradient was created uses difference and repetition to integrate the park and tower into a single form. The use of two gradients ensure each of the two programs are in the process of becoming the other alowing the design to go beyond placing a tower within a beautiful park.

Urban Gateway Opening up the corner at the pedestrian level resulted in a hotel that is formed by a tower of two legs; one contains the hotel and the other one provides support. As an urban gateway and iconic marker, the hotel has several functions beyond providing a place to call home for the night. The hotel forms a node that connects both the city of Warsaw and visitors to the city.

3 mutually added Value

2 As a result of overlapping the park’s surface with the high rise tower, the design takes advantage of the mixed uses on the site to create opportunities for the two different typologies to adding value to both of the site’s functions. 3 Lastly, the park benefits from the residential towers because each resident is directly invested in keeping their backyard enjoyable, safe and clean; relieving a burden that the city currently is completely responsible for.

Interior Atrium “Lily Pad Colonies” Platforms fill the hotel’s atrium space with an arrangement of floor plates that could be developed into the different types of spaces for gathering and social occasions within a hotel. A “lily pad” is found every four floors, gradually becoming larger as the event spaces are placed higher in the tower. Each four floor section forms a “colony” with a single center gathering space with four floors of hotel rooms surrounding and overlooking the space.

xyz + t Independent Film Center Dumbo, Brooklyn, New York University of Kansas

Spring 2009 Building Reuse AREA 5618 m2 (60,476 ft 2) STUDIO CRITICS Robert Riccardi, Dominique Davison

The study of film led to an investigation into the nature of time as an ordering system and foundation for creating an experience through a series of events. During initial conceptual research clarity was found through an analysis of the film Slumdog Millionaire (2009, Oscar Winner) Studying the film in relation to time, the three characters weave through a non linear series of events as the movie jumps between characters and different events in each of their lives. This study allowed insight into my own studies of perception, time and space to find clarity to formulate an internal understanding of the different natures of time and events that exist both within and completely outside of time. Contrasting time as a linear series of events a Moment, in which time stands still, creating a situation where the past, present and future were all collapsed into a single point. Behind the single point lies the experience, using a physical object to give life to a moment. For example the cinematic story requires the simple medium of film to be projected. These objects are often not representative of the incredible experience performed. Experience in the Film Center would be achieved by creating an infrastructure where opportunities for making, viewing and learning about film would occur. The project site, located between the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges in Dumbo, would provide the setting to tell the story of development for the design of the Film Center as well as the adjacent park.

Prepared Assembly

Spaces in Motion

Operating within the existing timber structure and masonry walls, floor levels are pushed and pulled vertically at points located in the structural matrix creating ramps that provide circulation and interaction between the floor levels. Floor levels connect vertically throughout different areas of the building; connecting spaces with similar or connected uses to provide building occupants convenience when these spaces are used in conjunction with or in a series of tasks.

Distinct experiences are possible from a mixture of circulation options that transgress through interdepartmental spaces. Each purposeful visit to the Film Center provides opportunity for the interaction with other functions of the building.

Inside, visitors waiting for the feature film can watch the live action taking place in the street. People in the street take part in a live cinema that preludes the actual film. During the film the connection is severed, the screen, black out curtains and speakers slide in place to enclose the theater.

The exhibition space disconnects from reality to create an experience that’s focused on deriving knowledge from artifacts of the past. A threshold adjusts focus and perception as one enters the exhibition space. Visitors adjust to the museum’s space in an attempt to connect to a culture that may be foreign to that of the visitor. The exhibition spaces’s threshold creates a false disconnect when in reality it is a part of the water’s surface within the harbor of sailboats.

Rocking the Grid CBGB Music Center

Lafyette and Housten, Manhattan, New York University of Kansas

Fall 2007 Renewal of the CBGB AREA 3990 m2 (42,948 ft 2) STUDIO CRITICS Peter Pran, Rene Diaz

The design process began with the question of how interaction between the public and privately owned spaces could overcome the typical disconnect and create a shared space between people within the SoHo area as well as those inhabiting the Music Center. Given such a highly visible location, the design for the CBGB Music Center utilized the power of projection to connect with the people of Manhattan. The building’s facade recedes from the limits of the site to dissolve the threshold as a clear line to create a shared space between the Music Center’s interior and the streets surrounding it. The experience of a building begins long before actually entering inside the building’s envelope.

^ ^

Typical Facade Exterior envelope wraps disconnected interior spaces.

Expanded Facade Lobby provides shared space to connect public street with private spaces inside.

^ ^ ^ ^

Distributed Facade Lobby space is distributed into adjoining spaces to directly connect street and inner building spaces. Both street and interior form a single, shared space that does not require a third intermediary space.

Openness The street flows into the building allowing the ground floor to extend into public space creating a gradient that distributes “entry” that is similar to sound, perceptual and unique to each person.

Spending most of his youth in Cadaques, Spain, Dali always remained close to the sea and a Spanish cliff side was chosen for the site which had similar qualities to the cliffs Dali included in his paintings.

On approach, the house is very simple and unimposing.

With a design concept of a house melting into the sea the form was achieved through multiple physical models. Ultimately, the form was decided by the nature of melting clay after subjecting a bar of the material perched upon a found piece of concrete. After fiften minutes in the oven the clay bar melted into the desired form.

Melting Clay

The house’s three floors transition from public spaces at the top where the entrance is and becomes private as the floors reach toward the sea. A mutated box frame gives stability to the cantilevered structure. The glass facade screens out the sun by using glazing that appears opaque to the light waves.

Dali believed we should use “the spontaneous method of irrational knowledge based on the critical and systematic objectifications of delirious associations and interpretations...” He proposed a tourism of sanity into the realm of paranoia; a state of delirium that eventually lead to Surrealism.

Contents contain the work of Tyler Selby. Comprising seven projects, this portfolio includes work performed while pursuing the M.Arch I at the University of Kansas and design competitions completed while an intern for the agency of Odile Decq in Paris last fall. Each project varies in scale but never in ambition. Ambitious investigation allows for the exposure of previously dormant opportunites that become engrained in the design strategy of each project. Tyler currently searches for the opportunity to further his understanding of the profession of architecture, including the entire process of a practice, and contribute to the success of a collaborative work environment.
