FULTON MARKET COLD STORAGE
EXISTING SE FACADE
EXISTING SW FACADE
WEST LOOP, CHICAGO
F.R.O.S.T.E.D R.E.M.I.N.I.S.C.E.N.C.E. . ... 2012
Historically, the Fulton Market Cold Storage Building has been housing thousands of pounds of frozen food, branching these goods to the large portion of the United States. The buidling itself, being the most domineering edifice of Chicago’s West Loop neighboorhood, has a very significant presence. Thus, the building’s enclosure necessitates an elegant design that will enliven this rapidly developing neighboorhood. Since the current enclosure is very solid, housing very few openings, it lacks interest and is insufficient in meeting the needs of a contemporary office building. However, even though we are stripping away the current enclosure, it is important to preserve some reminiscence of the building’s past. In doing so, I believe that applying a symbolic historical gesture through a decorative as well as a performative element will be of high intrest to the public and will forever enstill the memory of the Fulton Market Cold Storage Building. Inspiration for the new fascade came through the shapes and patterns created through the crystalition of ice and snowflakes. At the basic molecular level, ice crystals form a variety of shapes, the simplest and most common of them being the geometric hexagon. The lattice is formed due to polar charges of the two Hydrogen atoms that frame each Oxygen molecule. At 0˚C, water molecules start to frost, thus creating the first ice crystals that are generally observed as hexagonal plates and prysms. As the freezing temperatures grow deeper and as the air humidity rises, in general, these prisms start to branch and form more complex shapes. Some shaper re-occur at several ranges of precipitation and temperatures. The intricacy in geometries and their natural variations that depend on environmental forces, inspired me to apply these patterns in such a way that they will just be aesthetic, but performative as shading devices. The idea is that the density, complexity and layering of patterns would vary according to the interior functions and the exterior exposures to direct sun and heat.

SIMPLE PRISMS SIM SMS
1 SEQUENTIAL DENSITY PATTERN: A screen is suggested as a secondary building enclosure whose density and varyation in pattern will vary according to the environmental sun study data. Areas which are more exposed to heat gain and direct rays of sun, as well as areas whose interior functions require more privacy and whose positioning requires a directed view will employ a denser, more geometrically complex hexagonal pattern.
2 OVERLAP DENSITY PATTERNS: Second scheme proposes series of overlapping screens. Each level would have screens of either unique series of patterns or a same pattern that varies in density. The idea is that the users would manually slide the screens in order to achieve desired shading/lighting effects. What previous scheme lacked was user control and what this scheme offers in addition is versatility. Buildingâ€™s interior functinons may change through time, so with a series of movable screens, desired effects can be achieved regardless of juxtapositioning of internal spaces.
3 GRADIENT DENSITY PATTERN: Third scheme utilizes one particular pattern whose system members along with apertures increase or decrease in size visually creating a gradient effect. Where the apertures and members are thinner, more light penetrates through and vice versa. This method is achieved through the blend technique in Maya program where parameters are set to regulate the offset distance within a particular pattern. The surface is then populated based on image value which as a reasult can create a gradual transitioning pattern in a desired direction. The individual hexagonal unit patterns are snapshots of the gradually altering offset distances within the same pattern.

Architectural intent in addressing the Cranbrook Education Community site is to design a building with a monolithic, clean, symmetric facade. The building is to be a glistening jewel upon this neglected parking lot site. The building will be situated along the predominant linear axis of the Grand Allee path which would cause this main site force to be even further strengthened. Buildings located upon this site exhibit very monotone facades, very industrial and thus not very exciting atmosphere. By bringing in a buidling which will not only strenthen the linear site forces, but illuminate, brighten and bring excitement while maintaining a volumetric simplicity and regularity, this site will become a new destination for the Cranbrook community and promote future development and axpansion.

Building skin is composed of several layers of varying transparency enclosures. The exterior skin of the building is the most transparent. It is composed of a self-supporting steel frame that holds solar resistant glass pannels of transparent and translucent qualities. This allows much light to penetrate through the building’s exterior envelope while creating a glow effect in the evening hours when the structure is lit from within. In order to provide privacy for the more private spaces such as the pool areas and the fitness studio, a translucent enclosure is proposed. This layer is also constructed using a self-supporting steel frame to which are attached glass and thin marble panels. Each panel is composed of a single pane of glass that is attched to a very thin sheet of white marble. This effect provides a very glossy finish that allows only light to penetrate through.

Sun angle is highest on June 21st at noon, rising to 72ยบ off the ground plane. Meanwhile, the sun is at its lowest angle on December 21st at noon, lowering itself to 24ยบ with respect to the ground plane. In order to shield the building during these extreme exposures to the sun, skylight glazing and facade glazing implement pannels of varying transparencies with solar radiation resistance factors. Additionally, since the winter months are of more concern, the south and east facaces implement vertical sunshade fins that are made of thin pannels of glass and marble. They block direct glare of the sun and allow natual glow of ambient light to penetrate into the interior spaces.

The M.E.M.O.R.Y. of the M.O.U.L.I.N. R.O.U.G.E... Expressing the windâ€™s riveting rhythm, the ruffles of kaleidoscopic CanCan skirts, and the abounding energy of the Moulin Rouge, this design proposal strived to simultaneously preserve the spirit of the historic windmill provide a solution for its optimal function. Presently, the Moulin Rouge lacks spaciality, views, and technology desired for its dance school and administration. The institution also desires to appeal to additional public through incorporation of additional fascilities such as a museum and a restaurant.
Design concept was a metaphorical representation of the imagination associated with the Moulin Rouge. What came to mind were the spinning blades of the windmill that create helical waves of the wind, flying ruffles of th Can-Can skirts, bold colors and intricate rhythm.

The Moulin Rouge is located in Paris’s 18th arondisment, just down the hill from Montmartre, a district also known as Pigalle. Montmartre is primarily known for its white-domed Basilica of the Sacré Coeur while the Pigalle Place, at the foot of the Montmartre hill, has long been known for its more risque crowd. This district is famous for being a tourist red-light district, populated with adult shops, peep shows, strip clubs, cabarets, general adults-only adventures and prostitutes operating on side roads. Pigalle is also home to bourgeois buildings and is now territory of famous fashion designers, actors and models with a very high real estate. This neighborhood has long been the center of art and music as well. Famous artists such as Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Maurice Neumont, Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas and Salvador Dalí have all lived once here. The hill of Montmartre still draws artists from all over the world to display and sell their works, while tourists are drawn to visit the architecture and experience the excitement that this location offers. Our goal was to re-design the Moulin Rouge so that its symbolism, function and appeal are preserved, yet competent with 21st century’s expectations.
Photographs below demonstrate the panoramic view from the Moulin Rouge. The district is a typical Parisian residential area during the day, while at night it becomes Parisâ€™s red light district. Our design respected the surrounding building heights or maximum 25m, while aesthetically it created a strong contrast. We assumed that the residents of this neighborhood have been acustomed to the stong presenceand of the Moulin Rouge and that they would not object to more contemporary design of this historically famous institution and landmark. The height of first 3 levels above ground is 3m each and the height of the top 3 levels is 5m each.

Because the windmill has always been the focal point of the Moulin Rouge, we symbolically preserved its prominence through the red, spiraling escalier within the nucleus of the building. The essence of the staircase can be seen through the multicolored, transparent fasçade panels. These curvilinear panels represent windmill’s presence. The fascade itself wraps about the helical staircase, like an echo, or a spiraling tornado created by the windmill’s radiating blades that have represent the windmill as a strong force that can be felt througout the building. Drawings to the right demonstrate structural design of the fasçade and some concept sketches.
glass were used and connected to the grid using cross-shaped stainless steel four-leg spider clamps. The spider clamps helped integrate the façade into a whole unit and reinforce the glass partitions.
The structure of the grand escalier was based on ruffles of the Can-Can skirts. Two loops were intertwined creating a double set of stairs, one within the circumfrence of the other. Hollow interior provides view to ground level formal lobby and the skylight above.

His force of strong geometry upon the nature’s irregular, wild form was symbolic of his absolute power, control, perfection and social advancement. Thus, perfect geometric forms of the square and the circle were the the basis for design’s form.

Besides restoring the Figuerie, the parking lot has been removed from this historic site and has been redesigned into another garden, platform framed by a water feature, ramp converted into steps which guide visitors straight into the new Potager building. Tourists are guided straight into the reception area where they may purchase tickets to visit the Grand Square gardens, or they may also visit other attractions inside such as the museum, a show in the amphitheatre, or enjoy a meal in the restaurant where they may lounge in a view of another garden and the work of chefs through the glass enclosed kitchen. Before, visitors had to pass an unattractive parking lot, climb up a ramp, only to find themselves awkwardly standing at a corner indicated on the Site drawing. The institution really desired to have these additional facilities so that they may operate more successfully and provide the public with a more pleasant experience. Besides the public, the students of the Horticulture school may use these facilities and attend lectures in the amphitheatre, and use the restaurant or reception room in place of cafeteria. The structureâ€™s lower level was imbedded into the ground and provided direct outside access with the sunken garden. The upper level rises from the platform to a total height of 3m, and the amphitheatre rises to an additional 2m. This height has respected the views of the surrounding buildings and has left no greater impact than the previous glasshouses upon the site.
