ACTIVE INLAY | IN THE DETAILS: THE SPACE BETWEEN GOD AND THE DEVIL

Through the exploration of obscurity and the interaction of two massing identities, the project first approaches its formal and conceptual challenges. When the ‘Host,’ a mahogany box, is introduced to the ‘inlay’, a 3d-printed tunnel-like geometry, this determined the formal drive of the ‘object.’ bounded within the surfaces of the wooden box, Sectional qualities of the ‘inlay’ embedded within the ‘host’ are exposed. only through the exploration in which the ‘inlay’ is exposed in multiple faces of the ‘host’, resulted in the ‘object’. the opaquenss of both materials produced obscurity, pushing the ‘object’ to favor the complex levels of reverse readings to determine its final ‘object’ form. The project is drawn to the qualities of the inlay fighting for dominance. At certain moments the 3d-print suggests a host identity. Its this reversal reading, which at the object scale plays with what reads as the ‘host’ and the ‘inlay’. To emphasise this idea, the project reintroduces the mahogany as an ‘inlay’ embedded within the 3d-print. What was the inlay becomes the host and what was the host becomes the inlay of the inlay.

the ‘object’

the ‘object’ on site

Scaling up a level, when the ‘object’ sits in the site, the site is treated as the ‘new host’ where the original ‘inlay’ material spills out to dominate the surrounding volumes. Here, the material of the site is reintroduced into the spilled ‘inlay’ to complete the argument.

ACTIVE INLAY | IN THE DETAILS: THE SPACE BETWEEN GOD AND THE DEVIL

Scaling down from the object scale to the detail scale, the focus shifsts to a reversal of volume expressions. Through the design of the staircase, a Solid versus Void reversal relationship was explored. based on perspective and scale, the staircase can be read as one or the other. The components of a staircase, such as stair treads, hand rail, guardtail, and frame structure is an intertwining system of solids and voids. When all frame components read as void volumnes, The solid versus void argument is manifested three times; The treads versus the frame structure, The guardrail versus the frame structure, and the wall versus the frame structure. Conceptually speaking, the reversal also occures in that the whole structure can be read as voided volume from sectional representation. However at 1:1 scale, the handrail (a frame component) comprehends as solid object. at section level, making the presence of the two major inlays prominant, mainly through aesthetic distinctions, was priority. although the model suggests a direct translation of the ‘object’ on site, the reversal idea exsists in the form of illusion, where the original mahogany ‘inlay’ is connected to the site ‘inlay’. The space that connects the two is spatially occupied as the main circulation from below grade up into the building.

ARCHITECTURE AS REFLECTION..

“The project emphasises a consumerist and touristic view of art at the expense of the cultural and humane task of art. Instead of strengthening local artistic traditions and practices, the project strengthens the already doubtful globalisation and commercialisation of art. The public funds could clearly be used in a more innovative and efficient manner to support Finnish artistic culture.” [about the new Guggenheim Helsinki Competition 2014] – Juhani Pallasmaa Juhani Pallasmaa’s statement sets up the inspiration for this project, which is crucial in understanding the perspective and attitude towards culture in Finland. This project suggest a relevant and interesting proposal celebrating the long-lasting traditions of Finland together with one of Alvar Aalto’s legacy: Säynätsalo Town Hall. Säynätsalo Town Hall faces a unique problem of losing its purpose since the Säynätsalo town was merged with the municipality of Jyväskylä. Built to accommodate many activities, the multi-functional building was operated not only as the town’s primary civic meeting space, but also as a library, barber, shops and a bank. Since its loss of township, Säynätsalo Town Hall was left without a function for the next two decades.

The Wood Program

Permanent Exhibition

Covered in forest at about 72.4%, Finland naturally has had a long relationship with forest cultivation, forest management, and wood manufacturing, which has been one of Finland’s natural resource. Not only does the ‘Wood Research Woodshop’ support the continuation of this practice and tradition, but also wants to suggest a potential for more. A study program called ‘The Wood Program,’ currently offered at the Design and Architecture department (School of Arts) at Aalto University, is a one-year intensive study focused on wood and wooden architecture. The program explores ecological, technical and architectural properties of wood, providing a wholistic view on the chain of wood construction. The project sought this as an opportunity; A way for Säynätsalo Town Hall to be reactivated perhaps starts by introducing an accommodation for wood research, wood-manufacturing activities adjacent to the Town Hall.

The current Säynätsalo Town Hall operates mainly as a major tourist attraction. What once was a main gathering space for public civic meetings, it is operating as office spaces, a conference room, smaller meetings room, and small apartment units. Taking into consideration the project proposes a residence program available for studies about wood. Spaces incorporated within are two studios, a wood storage, two exhibition halls; an archive room, a library, a workshop and an external build space. In contemporary society, by proposing out to the ‘Wood Program’ and making these spaces accessible to students and scholars residing in Town Hall, this allows constant dialogue between the Town Hall and the new building. The form of the building communicates through circulation and proportion whilst complimenting the Town Hall’s monumental status and presence. Through the use of wood and an exploration of wood construction systems, the design hopes to be indicative of its modern and contemporary identity.

“the national veterans resource complex (NVRC) at syracuse university will leverage a public-private sector partnership model, to nurture academic research, actionable programming, and collaborative thought leadership positioned to impact veterans and their families on the campus of syracuse university, in new York state, and in communities across the u.s.” emulating the foundations of a project currently undergoing construction in syracuse, the proposal for a student designed SUNVRC seeks to cater the needs of veterans and their families to make a successful and productive transition into their life beyond their service. as existing syracuse university communities are major characteristics of the city that could provide such academic and professional programs, The forming of a veteran community to integrate and combine it as another central part of the city becomes the emphasis of the project. the incorporation of the academic and social aspects of SU with the necessary resources for rehabilitation together with the consideration of the site being a transitional area within Campus, determines the programs facilitated. this allows the concept of integration to be expressed both literally and metaphorically and drive the project forward formally.

By embodying a piazza as a form of a reflective memorial space, interaction is created by merging veterans with existing students to reflect on the past but still motivate them together towards their futures. Analyzing the existing new house complex adjacent to the site and the courtyard, enclosed by New house 1, 2, and 3, it’s provided a secondary route from waverly ave to University place, a major promenade that circulates students around major school buildings, it demonstrates a fallowed and failed public gathering space.

active space

Formally speaking, utilizing the existing connection between Marshall Str and Waverly Ave as such reflective space, a divide is created allowing the project to formulate an interesting programlandscape relationship whilst maintaining the transitiona l qualities of the site.

The divide further separates the supplementary programs into two masses: the active and the reflective. The active includes a gym, a gallery and a cafeteria. the reflective facilitates classrooms, veteran alumni center, a library, an auditorium and a wellness center (for physiotherapy and consulting).

The reflections are also figuratively demonstrated through the repeated use of concrete and wood within the sacred spaces. Concrete exterior walls and wooden Louver system wrapping the facade aimed to create a thoughtful but not an intimidating image. simple, concrete waffle slabs - as support - and wooden finishes was employed for the interior. louvers wrap around the main facades that face Waverly Avenue and the open courtyard. An air vent that embodies a memorial plaque is also situated in the courtyard in order to commemorate veterans whilst reflecting formal aspirations of the building.

per [form] ance | ferry terminal Infrastructure as Architecture… Per[form]ance seeks to employ technology with formal drive to contribute to a developing community on the Brooklyn Pier. With the intention to adapt a filtration system and taking advantage of the surrounding water, this project also aspires to create an ecological building that is self-sufficient within an evolving environment. The project also aims to program a private pool, shower + changing rooms, Cafe and restaurant. (Public) Pool, shower + changing rooms, Cafe, Ticket booth, Waiting Hall/ Docking zones, bar, gift shops and bathrooms. to create a working filtration system, two different methods of water collection was considered: existing water source and rainwater. Deriving from the general form of the pier consisting of two slabs (The Roof and the platform) the rainwater is be collected through the roof and seawater through beneath the platform. Both sources once collected is filter separately and stored afterwards in the same ‘clean’ thank.

per [form] ance | ferry terminal New York state water is renowned for its drinkable quality and its accessibility from the city. Making use of the pier situated directly above the water, the river water will be filtered and reused using the water harvesting system, which will also be applied in harvesting rainwater in the building. The river water will have a separate filtration leading into the main mechanical room on pier. River water will be purified using charcoal, pebbles, fine-grained sand and cotton. In order to gather rainwater, a modular infrastructure was generated that conforms to a gridded curved horizontal surface. The curvature opens up larger programmatic areas not only allowing sunlight into the building but also creates runoffs for rainwater to be collected at specified locations. This way, a natural delivery system is provided using gravity. The modules used consist of large hollow columns- reinforced with steel frames- that hold the filtration system within. Leaf screens will be attached on the outer surface of the roof to catch debris, and water will be ready for purification. the system is designed to connect into a larger storage tank located in the mechanical room which distributes all usable water throughout the pier. The water will be reusable for pools, bathrooms and in the cafe and restaurants. The building will be fully self-maintained.

religion as architecture...

at the foundation of Italian cities today, lies the fundamental architectural understanding derived from the negotiation of religion and space-making. once thriving of innovation of art and science in the architectural expressions of symbolism. florence being the home and one of the oldest cities to have influence in the renaissance period, it accommodates a plethora of architectural examples that com In particular, these spatial manifestations of symmetry, geometry, proportion, phenomenal transparency are clearly articulated through the works of brunelleschi, alberti, sangallo, raphael, and mic Some of these projects take forms of temples, churches, palazzos, and piazzas. However, what if the same questions had applied to different religions such as paganism? How would this approach to space-making translate in modern society?

these questions pose as the cornerstones of this project.

NATURE AS DIVINE... The definition of Paganism originally referred to other minority religions that was nonconforming to a state religion, however, it is more commonly applied to any contemporary belief system that acknowledges the awareness of the significance of the natural world and its power. Pagans believe this is typically alluded through the ongoing cycles of life and death. Many concurrences of the definition of God and God’s presence sources back to the physical world. Questions of multiple deities, the Universe as God, and especially Nature as God being the source of all exploration, the project employs life and nature symbolism such as, cycles, directionality, symmetry, geometry, and phenomenal transparency through space making. Classifying nature’s four fundamental elements found in this world: water, air, fire and earth, these elements determine the strategy to create a series of major spaces. The characteristics of each element are defined through form by dedicating a specific geometry to an element that accentuates each’s properties. The abstraction of interconnection of all things is represented through the overlapping of these major geometric spaces, which is then further broken down by transitional spaces in between each major space.

the Project site, Florence, italy, traditionally offers low rise buildings with various pallazo type houses in the city center and surrouding the site location. The site location is embedded beside the slopes that lead up to palazzo Pitti and giardino di boboli from the duomo side of ponte vecchio. Therefore, shares both types of city-scapes of buildings and nature on either side of the site.

evident through vast studies in the past that demonstrate sophisticated space making. closer towards the boundaries of the city of Firenze, the site on Costa San Giorgio is located on a steep slope. a cluster of dwelling units, housing and apartments alike, with traces of religious buildings mostly occupy the street and neightborhood. very little or no public gathering spaces exist but the slope inhabits an extensive area of greenery. Taking advantage of the slope, the general overall form of the building is embedded underground as a literal translation of connecting back to nature. By interpreting the cycling of life and death as a journey, the successful transition of the overlapping major spaces intertwining with the transitional spaces becomes the focus of the project. inspired by works of frank lloyd wright, ludwig mies van de rohe, and aldo rossi, the transitional drive was determined by formal techniques; framing, directionality, proportion, phenomenal transparency, slipping and sliding of thin surfaces as well as pushing and pulling of thicker volumes endorses further such specified circulation throughout the ‘journey’. The beginning of the journey descends participants underground into the first water section to restrain all senses of the outside world. This space emulates the fluidity of water by embodying multiple circulation routes, the space is formed through the phenomenal transparency of platforms and partitions. As the journey continues into the Air section,

participants are ascended back into the open atmosphere that catches glimpses of the city left behind. The change in elevation not only allows the participants to engage in this space as a new experience, but also to realize the figurative reflection (of life) is being imposed literally. Air transitions into Fire, which is designed towards the sun and sunlight, when immerses the participants further down into the ground during transition. In doing so, all awareness of light is absented until participants enter a cone shaped space with a skylight that illuminates the surfaces within. The final sequence of major spaces resume into the Earth section, which takes the journey even further into the ground to emphasize the isolation. Although the space is less geometrically defined than the previous spaces, the ambiance of subtle lighting and exposed earth surfaces as well as the exit sequence is what concludes the journey. At the end of the Earth section, participants are ascended up by an elevator to travel down the slope back to the entrance to finalize the overarching symbolization cycle of life.

The conventional notion of “virtual reality” is that of a visually stimulated technology that creates the perception of viewing a “new reality.” This can be seen with the development of reality technology in the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. While this groundbreaking technology has infinite possibilities, it still doesn’t quite bridge the gap between the physical world and the virtual world.

CONTENTION: onventional notion of “virtual reality” by proposing that a “virtual” space doesn’t necessarily need to be purely an ocular experience, but rather, a “virtual” space is one that challenges the status quo. f an element that evokes continuous change and fluctuating emotion: rain. Rain as an element is an intrusive force that has forced humanity to develop means in combating the harsh climate rain evokes. ue experience of rain that hasn’t been felt before. By isolating each of the five senses, the experience of rain changes and thus the meaning of it chnges, ultimately creating a new “virtual” experience of rain. Isolation of the five senses: Hearing: Creating cavernous voids with three different materials in concrete, steel, and wood to generate maximum acoustics and new perception of the sound of rain Touch: Uses motion tracking cameras that senses people, turning off rain sprinklers. This creates a buffer zone for people to walk in the rain without touching it. Sight: Frames rain in isolated glass containers that mute the sound of rain hitting the glass. This creates a purely visual only experience of rain. Taste: Using filtered water, a stream of water is pooled at a fountain to taste the rain. Smell: By taking advantage of the process of petrichor (rain hitting dry soil and plants, emitting an odor into the air), one can experience the smell of rain.


MAKE IT RAIN | INNOVATIVE MINDS 2016 - VIRTUAL EPOCH

SITE: The site selected for MAKE IT RAIN is on the side of the Brooklyn Bridge Park. Due to the project primarily aspiring to evoke a new “virtual” experience by the isolation of the senses, a disrupting environment in regards to the senses, such as central Manhattan, may deter the effectiveness of the tehcnology proposed. By placing the project on the Brooklyn Pier, it can take advantage of the local water source to supply the experience, without being interrupted by other disturbances. the pier already undergoing development itself for public use, this location serves to promote the project to people by mere exposure.
