college of culinary entertainment: interaction between education and entertainment with the idea of food as entertainment

spring 2012 partner - jeremy jones 1000 Walnut St. Boulder,CO instructor - marcel de lange ACSA steel competition entry What makes a student pick this school over any other? The answer is the unique and modern approach to a culinary education. Unlike most culinary colleges the, College of Culinary Entertainment incorporates the concept of food as entertainment. Not only does the first floor kitchen feature an open kitchen offering a live cooking display to customers, but the building also contains six studio demonstration kitchens. These studios satisfy a variety of programmatic functions from broadcasting cooking shows to standard cooking classes/lessons, and are housed by node-like structures all enclosed by a double skin curtain wall facade system. This form was driven by the idea of entertainment anchors spread throughout a rational open space. [rhinoceros3d + revit + sketchup + shaderlight + illustrator + photoshop]

Pod Performance The pods also serve as important mechanical elements in the buildings design. As seen on the right, the top section of each pod, (which protrude through the roof) is a mechanical room with space for mechanical equipment such as air handling units and HVAC systems. The arrows on the right side diagram signify the systems that run through the walls of each pod. Air can be pumped in between the tube steel structure(dotted line) and the interior walls. This space can also be used for the ventilation systems for the hoods in each kitchen. The image on the left displays the structure of the pods, which have large openingsin each floor level for a open cooking and filming experience. Cladding the pods interior and exterior is a stainless steel skin used for its durability and superior qualities for the culinary industry.

sine screen wall: inspired and produced after simple manipulation of a sine curve

spring 2012 digital fabrication instructor - marcel de lange This was the final project for my senior year digital fabrication class. A solid surface of the curve was produced digitally using Rhino3D and sliced into a series of vertical(x) and horizontal(y) ribs. These ribs were then sent through a CNC machine to cut each unique piece out of different thicknesses of plywood, which were then stained and assembled to create a six foot by six foot screen wall as seen in the following images. [rhinoceros3d + v-ray + cnc milling + illustrator]

The ribs were cut out of four foot by four foot sheets of plywood and included precisely cut notches for quick and easy assembly using g r a s s h o p p e r.


hillside home case study house located in a colorado ski town

fall 2011 134 blue ridge road, Breckenridge, CO instructor - ron faleide Aiming to provide an ideal living environment for a typical family located in the breckenridge area. Offering plently of space for an average size family and guests, the home also recieves plenty of exposure to natural sun light and gorgeous views. The use of panel board formed concrete both on the interior and exterior help create a sense of connection to the mountain side on which it sits. [revit + sketchup + illustrator]

digital fabrication more work produced from 3D modeling programs

spring 2012 instructor - marcel de lange

Seen previously in this booklet, the sine screen was the final project for this semester long class, so this sections is included to show the work produced throughout the semester. I became proficient with rhino3D, dove into the complex world of grasshopper as a plug-in for rhino, explored the possibilities of v-ray for photo realistic renderings, and had the opportunity to advance my skills with CNC machines, laser cutters, and 3-D printing. [topmod + rhinoceros3d + vray + grasshopper]


performative skin: exploring potential skin functions

spring 2012 instructor - marcel de lange studio 4 mini project This exercise addressed the possibilities of building skins designed as performative elements, with the assignment to create a space to gather and hold people. The two identical curved wall installations create a center space which is revealed by different sized apertures in the honey-comb structure. The cell of each web is designed to move several inches in and out of the wall, allowing for users to interact and create something that virtually never looks the same, with the intent to draw people in to have more than just a visual interaction.

denver bicycle museum: reflecting the cultural and environmental nature of bicycles

fall 2012 1400 Wazee St. Denver,CO instructor - erik summerfeld museum for a useful object The site of this project sits along cherry creek, which contains both a pedestrian path on one side of the creek, and a bike path along the other. The remaining three sides of the site are all existing urban structures creating a significant contrast from the natural and urban contexts. The design of the museum aims to relate the this contrast to the different experiences of different styles of bike riding through light qualities, material use, and circulation, while providing social space for the biking community to gather separate of museum functions. A large P.V. panel feature wraps the south west corner of the museum creating a light quality relative to beams of light streaking through a tree canopy one might find while riding a bicycle, as well as speaks to the environmental nature of bike riding in a transportation sense. The museum portion of the building consists of a frosted double skin system slightly revealing the exhibits and actions inside to the public, while allowing for passive heating and cooling systems. [rhinoceros3d + revit + sketchup + illustrator + photoshop]


Design Goals. + Address the contrast of urban and natural contexts adjacent to the site + Relate site contexts to the experiences of a bike ride (Urban v Natural elements) -Light Qualities -Material Qualities -Circulation + Create social spaces tied with both urban and natural contexts to collect and circulate people off the streets and creek path + Establish a gathering place for biking community + Engage Cherry Creek Path + Reveal museum galleries to public + Speak to the cultural and environmental nature of bicycles in todays world
