House 2.5D

Grid Structure

House X’ “The more architecture mutates, the more it confronts its immutable core” Rem Koolhaus, S,M.L.XL (New York: Monacelli Press, 1998), xix. Using and building upon the techniques of controlled manipulation which we began to evolve during the project, This project called to create architectonic volumes. To achieve this aim, I took a brief look at the diagramming strategy the Peter Eisenman employed during the design of his House X project. Extrapolating from these techniques and constraints, this work evolved their own strategy for the mutation and manipulation of a set of simple primitives to produce volume and ‘mass.’ It was also asked to evolve a new relationship to ‘ground’ as their volumes evolved towards something we might begin to consider architectural.


2.5D Gas Station

Design Studio_Mat Urbanism - Pattern

Mat Urbanism : The Thick 2-D Mat building is characterized by active interstitial spaces, where matter shapes and channels the space between things, leaving room for the unanticipated. The boundary is indeterminate and if imagined as an urban experience, the building could never be perceived as a whole. In mat configurations, section is not the product of stacking(discrete layers, as in a conventional building section) but of weaving, warping, folding, oozing, interlacing, or knotting together.

-Stan Allen


Reclaiming publicness in urban space Downtown, Syracuse

Reclaiming publicness in urban space _Taking to the street Arendt presents public realm as a place of action by people. She explains this idea with an illustration of Agora as community and where an opportunity for action is given, through which political life is established. Also, in her writing Public Rights and Private interests, she claimed what is necessary for the public realm is that it be shielded from the private interests which have intruded upon it in the most brutal and aggressive form. Political expression and activity are the core functions of public space. The place for publicity should be played as an area where people in civil society can communicate and interact with each other, as well as where social, political expressions and activities, social learning, and exchange are freely made. In order to revive the publicity, this paper would propose the city as urban bases where citizens will be able to implement what they wish to in their own way. It is only through such a space that citizens can meet and communicate with each other. Such space, not just an empty space, is important factor of the publicity. Carmona and Heath argue that the public realm, which includes the concept of public space, has three functions(ideally). The first function is to play as a square where political expressions and activities can be presented, the second is to play as a space for communication and interaction in civil society, and finally, it functions as a place where social learning and exchange are made. 1 H. Arendt, The Human Condition, 1958 2 Carmona, Heath, Public Place, Urban Space, Oxford, 2003

As presented in the documentary ‘The Square’, public space as an infrastructure that plays a social and political role in the city is still important. Therefore I have response to the public space that citizens are re-claim their publicness. It could be start with the architectural way from the urban open space. Which are building solid wall, non-occupied urban open space, government office buildings. My intervention is an architectural response to the notion of “taking to the street” which is typically associated with political unrest or in its extreme, revolution. As a physical infrastructure for political discourse, the proposed apparatus seeks to support everyday social and political exchange - a persistent “taking to the streets”. Its presence alters the spatial experience of the urban street and seeks to promote a more participatory public realm.

Combined Candle jar In assignment 2, I began with the objects of the candlestick and candleholder to make the plaster mold. The lighting of the candle, its becoming meaningful through the flame, was indirectly represented with the passage of time through the thickness of the slipcast candle. While the Candle is burning, the candlestick becomes lighter in mass as it is converted into light. In the cast object, this relationship is represented inversely. The longer the mold is filled with liquid slip, the thicker and heavier the mass of the cast candle becomes. This can been seen in the cross section of the candle lid.

Bunch of candles In assignment 3, I also directly used the candlestick and the candle holder as the form for the plaster mold. Cast in ceramics, they created two distinctive types of void, the void of the candle holder and the voids of the candlestick. The change in thickness of the cast additionally produced different formal relationships between the voids of the candlestick and candleholder. Just as the candlestick is shortened over time in the ritual due to the flame, the voids of the candlestick become shortened with the accumulation of time due to the growing material thickness.
