Constructed Improvisations The project presented is a series of architectonic investigations that transpose, manipulate and articulate the joints, connections, and transitions present in jazz improvisation. The process of construction and variation on a theme involves an expanding series of analog and digital design techniques range from collage making to laser-controlled fabrication. The context is itself. It grows, refers and communicates within. The material is form regulated by light. The function is the psychological demand of space. The budget is time, passion and commitment to the study of a pure architecture.

A two-sided relief was fabricated with related sets of architectonic analysis and chromatic encodings. One side would be primary, while the other is secondary. Both sides would interact with each other as a whole; compose the spaces and tensions in between.

The two-sided relief is based on the analysis of two collage sequence strips. Unlike the first two-sided relief, this 3-foot tall model was strategically considered in the X and Y directions, emphasized the notion of the ‘betweenness’ spaces and the transverse sectional reading of the model.

AMARILLO TRUCKER SCHOOL

A CURIOUS BEACON

Interstate 40 Travel Center The design program includes a fueling station, truck repair facilities, a truck driving school, a convenience store, an observation deck, and a restaurant. The main design concept is playing with viewpoint, distance and speed. Located along Interstate 40, Amarillo, Texas, the massive wing structure intends to frame the flat horizon of West Texas. Cladded with black vertical fins, shadows are projected onto the observation tower, making it significantly darker. This 150ft tower would undertake the similar role of a control tower on aircraft carrier, escorting travelers on I40 from miles away.

Because of the nature of naval engagements, it is common to identify a ship on the horizon with the aid of a handbook containing ship silhouettes and statistics. This idea of a strong and easily recognizable silhouette on the horizon line is directly tied into our project. Traveling East on Interstate 40, the site is visible for up to 6 miles. Our design creates an object that can be easily identified from miles away.

510 West 19th Street, NYC Located at the West Chelsea district of New York, this nine storied mixed-use building situated in a unique site, adjacent to the High Line Park. The branching-like faรงade structurally wraps over the entire building, creating column-free spaces, and transforms this building into a flashy beacon for the repurposed train track. The lower level of the building, which includes a bar, a restaurant, and a gallery space, provides additional interests for the elevated green. In parallel, the upper level residents can enjoy the rare relaxation in this congested city.

2010 Term: Level: Professor:

Fall 2010 Graduate Design Studio Chris Taylor


Land Arts of the American West Two months of camping and six-thousand miles travelling across the American southwest regions, this semester long program seeks to explore and investigate both natural and human influences that fabricate and transform the contemporary landscapes. Multiple projects are developed through reflections, first-hand experiences, as well as data and contexts that were documented.


Land Arts of the American West at Texas Tech is an transdisciplinary field program investigating the intersection of geomorphology and human construction. It is a semester abroad in our own back yard. Each fall students venture across the American southwest camping for a two months while traveling six-thousand miles overland to explore natural and human forces that shape contemporary landscapes— ranging from geology and weather to cigarette butts and hydroelectric dams. Sites visited include Chaco Canyon, Roden Crater, the north rim of the Grand Canyon, Double Negative, Sun Tunnels, Spiral Jetty, the Wendover Complex of the Center for Land Use Interpretation, Bingham Canyon Mine, Lake Powell, Jackpile Mine at Laguna Pueblo, Chiricahua Mountains, Cabinetlandia, Marfa, the Very Large Array and The Lightning Field. Land Arts situates our work within a continuous tradition of land-based operations that is thousands of years old. Analysis of sites visited provides a basis for dialog and invention. Issues of spatial and material vocabulary, constructional logics, and inhabitation serve as the foundation for an investigation through making. Students construct, detail, and document a series of site-base interventions in a context that places emphasis on processes of making, experiential forms of knowing, and transdisciplinary modes of practice. The immersive nature of how we experience the landscape triggers an amalgamated body of inquiry where students have the opportunity of time and space to develop authority in their work through direct action and reflection. Land Arts hinges on the primacy of first person experience and the realization that human-land relationships are rarely singular.

The 8-foot collage was created from 11 long exposure photographs of the moon. These photographs were taken with a tripod in motion. These helical motions are manually controlled, so each photo is unique.

Thirty doors, borrowed from the neighbor hot house for live fire training, were arranged in the immense, monotonous landscape.


Project Speaker Begins with drafting an exploded computer speaker, Project Speaker involves manipulating the detail drawing as a fictitious site through stages of digital and physical experiments. The primary objective is to seek intriguing spaces and forms, through its own meaning, within the 11 x 17 x 4 inches requirement. The project is a self-envision and fascination of ‘what if?’

03 product design Create a light source with the understanding of materials and constructing technique. The design inspiration comes from the reflection between two mirrors. The prototype product is a 11” x 11” x 2” box made of 1/8” MDF and two sheets of 8” x 8” plexiglass applied with mirror reflective film. Recycled LED lights are concealed behind a frame of opaque plexiglass inside the box. When the light is off, the box is simply work as a mirror. When the light is on, it creates an optical illusion as if the depth of space extent beyond the box. The light box has demonstrated the idea of containing a larger space than the container itself can contain, provoke one’s question about the qualitative of space.
